about

“Greedy”
“I’m getting greedy, I want that other one hanging there just out of reach.” I felt like I was on a roll creatively writing songs, tapped into wherever they seem to come from, and I wanted more.. That’s where that first line came from. Then in a stream of consciousness sort of way started tapping into memories and stories. They’re a bit a a jumble, the way memory tends to be, making connections and free associations from different people and times in my life. Years ago living in Brooklyn, going to the Mermaid Parade, which had a proto hipster/freakshow/burning man via NYC/kid friendly strip club kind of vibe, which always seemed to be the hottest week of the year; a guy who used to work with me who always had great stories and great nicknames for the people in them; my friends Cate and Serafina driving up to MT from Santa Fe to come to our show on Cate’s birthday.
It’s got a little bit of a Velvet Underground vibe to it. It’s just a kind of vibey grooving summertime song.

lyrics

"Greedy"
I’m getting greedy I want that other one hanging (there)just out of reach
The girls in the parking lot misinformed me now I’m standing in the rain at the beach
Tony Slacks can spin a good one   Little Pants’ll tell one too
Pretty funny sonny like a monkey on Sunday with a date at the zoo
Oh baby

Pretty sweet my friend Schemey
He’d light his bike up at night like a Christmas tree
Fire it up and cruise the whole city
Kinda trippy kinda dreamy
Oh baby

Catey and Serafina drove up from Santa Fe
Have you seen em yet
Ah but they’re weird and they’re wonderful 
Kinda dreamy like Schemey 
I live on the outside looking in
Astroland the tilt a wheel
hot day the mermaid parade
I'm on the outskirts eyes peeled
The Cyclone's a compact twister
floating on thin air
then late at night on the boardwalk
hot and steamy / still dreamy

about

KING ROPES Bozeman, montana

When Dave Hollier spins records at a party, he plays stuff that’s all over the map. The Meters, The Knife, Boston, Bowie, Buck Owens. It could go very wrong. But it doesn’t. Finding the thread that leads from The Cars to The Beastie Boys to Van Halen to Prayers, he tells a long, beautiful, cross-cultural, multi-generational story. Hollier’s band King Ropes is doing much the same thing. ... more
