(I'm Gonna Drink A) Fifth Of July

Twitter joke that turned into an actual country song an hour later. I'm in Huntsville with nothing but my ukulele, so this didn't get the full band treatment I'd otherwise do, but it works pretty well like this.

Hate That Train That Carried My Girl From Town

Here's the SMOKE BENDERS, live in Toyama, Japan, from March 2012. The sound is a little gymnasium-y, due to the fact that the gig was in a gymnasium. I'm on electric talking drum for this one. Video here.

Lonesome Whistle

Here's the Smoke Benders, folks. We took Hank Williams' lamentation of an unlucky prisoner from its original waltz time and put a NOLA second line feel under it. Cause, hey, who doesn't like a NOLA second line feel, right? Video at YouTube and Vimeo.

I Used To Hate You But Now I Love You

This month's Challenge got me to thinking: with 'hate' being such a profound and powerful emotion, isn't it odd that there are really so few songs that really employ it as an idea or as inspiration? I mean, 'love'? Heck, you can't spit without hitting a love song, but hate, that's a different story. So anyway, this is a song of hate and love. Love and hate. Simple as that. Video here.

Whole Bag of Wrong

Here's another one from the Smoke Benders' recent Hokuriku tour. Clocking in at 8 minutes, it's a wee bit longer than previously posted tunes here. It goes through summa them changes and all, and includes some psychedelic diddley bow solos. Video here.

Marra Wanna Be Like Me

Just a goofy little tune I do. This is one you either like or dont. But should or shouldnt. I dont wanna be a song pusher. Lite up and follow the bouncing what ever you see bouncing and sing along. The words will have this tune stuck in your head like a bad jingle gone wild.
