Sadly, famousmark has left us to devote his full rockitude to his actual band, Little Hand of the City. We still love the shit out of Famous Mark, but now we need a new keyboard player. Someone who can sing. Like Elvis Costello.
In the meantime, we're still working on the songs we know, and fooling around with some non-Elvis stuff. Otis has some pretty cool pop songs swimming around in his gigantic head, so he and Mike and I played with them a bit tonight. We might record some of it, just to have around... or we might develop them more and come up with more stuff like them. The songs themselves are cool emo-punk-ish-poppy stuff. I like them a lot. Maybe you'll get to hear them someday.
But enough about the stuff I'm working on. I'll bet you're anxious to hear Track #4, aren't ya? Well... just pretend you are.
Today's track is "Groovey Geezer" by The Big Six. Say what you want about the so-called "swing revival" from a while back, but it produced some pretty cool bands. I'm sure The Big Six were around before that, but I'd never heard them until a friend of mine dragged me all the way to Tucson to see them play. I was hooked by the second song. Here were a bunch of brits, in giant oversized plaid suits, playing a killer mix of good swing and ska. The guy with the bari sax would wander around the crowd while he played solos. He didn't need to be miked at all.
Download yourself track #4 - http://www.threeimaginarygirls.com/steve/4.mp3 - and turn your shit way up. Get out of your chair, skank around the office and send up thanks to your groovey geezer friend Steve for hooking you up with The Big Six.
