about

February 20.19 Um, I got bored. I'm writing so much these days and no outlet while I'm waiting for my dear old webmaster to post the voting pages for the upcoming "Kizza" release. What the hell. So here's our first single release for 2019. Something brand new. The only thing borrowed is the intro riff. Stolen from my "Mr. Sandman" verse. Looking back, that was pretty much all there was. Just sitting in the media room playing the riff and the 'A suspended' chord came out of nowhere. After that, it was off to the races. I'm anticipating some exciting new additions to the site in the very near future. In the meantime ... race you to the moon. Wait for the whistle xoRJ

lyrics

Tonight’s that kind of night
When I just can’t sleep
Unlock the cosmic door
And let you bother me

Drive your luna-tractor up and down my heart
Quartz in my Pulsar all a-flutter

Race you to the moon
Cocktails when we get there
Count all the craters left by falling stars

It’s that kind of life
When the brush won’t paint
Streaks my favourite wall
In a room for mistakes

I let you drive your luna-tractor up and down my heart
Is that - Quartz in your Pulsar yet a-flutter?

Race you to the moon
Cocktails when we get there
Count all the craters left by falling stars
Let’s go planet hopping
I was kissed by Venus
The voice that’s glistening
Was blessed by falling stars

Two wrongs in the night
You’re for me
Some when the time is right
You can come and bother me

I’ll watch you drive your luna-tractor up and down my heart

Race you to the moon
Cocktails when we get there
Count all the craters left by falling stars
Let’s go planet hopping
I was kissed by Venus
The voice that’s glistening
Was blessed by falling stars

Race you to the moon!

We didn't get to test drive "Friday Night" the way we wanted to. Mr./Ms. Universe stepped in. Our seventh full-length release "Piece Of Your Ghost" becomes available on June 18th, 2021. I'll see what I can do about a single release or two. September sounds good. Summer's coming! Time to kick a few ghosts around ... Something in mind ... hmmm ... xoRJ ... more
