Drinking Gasoline

2nd song from Getaway Plans remix featuring the great Jason Fuller on piano.  This is by far my most popular song in Morganton, my home town, because it is about a true story of what we saw one night at the 3 Way Supply up at Lake James.  It’s a funny song without a chorus, just a good old americana instrumental breakdown.  Thanks for listening!

First Funk Baptist

Yet another intermittent song post from my ‘Risky Biscuits’ album.  We are finally getting near the end.  This little diddy is a comedy song featuring the ultra talented Coda Baerfider spouting tongue in cheek spiritual wisdom (in prompt-tu) with the brilliant sax work of Gary Hartle in the background.   We recorded the sax in the bath tub!

A New Sport for Prime Time

The next song off of ‘Risky Biscuits’ used to be our most popular live song in the Athens era Parakeet Nelson heyday.   It’s also my Dad’s favorite song by that band!   This was recorded live and features incredible solos by John Wayne Tuggle, Gary Hartle, Mike Elam, me (harmonica) and John Kell.   Thanks for listening!
