Tall Tales WILL send a three-song cassingle to Carson Jones Daly featuring a hidden track.
Four-fifths of the band voted on which songs would go.
Simply put, Dan Fallis had the most reasoned ballot, offering a thematic choice with songs that focused on our troubled times. So tentatively we're going to follow his vote (not all things are fully democratic) and send off a cassingle with a hand-drawn cover for
TALL TALESThe songs (with featured lyric) are:
Soundtrack for a Recession [Please Rewind When Through]
- "TRUE" (from Pot Pie, 2004) 'Voted for this guy before he was a politician slob.'
- "NEW WORRY DAY" (from Damn Kat, 1991) 'I worry about my family, I worry about my friends, planes are always crashing and killing lots of men, I worry about the wars and the nuclear toys, I worry about the body and the way it's being spoiled.'
- "CEO" (from Pot Pie, 2004) 'Now they are saying that they no longer need me, I just couldn't please, told me to hand over all my keys... they escort me to the door, lost my job and now I'm very poor.'
- "NEOLITHIC NOBODYS" (from Crime in a Bucket, 1990) 'Fenceposts are following roads which are mowing trees and houses to the ground, as it gets older, the elites will get bolder, and start to burn the villages down. Here they come again, they take all they can, they're tearing down your house while you're alive.'
We will post a digital download version of the cassingle here when it's completed, and pass on any correspondence between Tall Tales and Mr Daly.
Meanwhile, here's a promo for the Tall Tales Box Set, due sometime between June 1 and January 4, 2010:
