about

Sweat. Nothing comes close to this one in a live setting. I remember when Marty first played the opening riff for Malcolm, my manager; he looked at Malcolm, gave him the nod and ripped into it. Pure joy. Even long after this compilation was released, Malcolm used to talk about that incident. And something he told a lot of friends about. He’d even take the disc to his favourite haunts. “This is my mate, Bert …” It took me about half an hour to write this one, recording all the tracks on my trusty Tascam porta05 recorder. I rehearsed it the next day and tracked it that same night. I've collected a lot of demo tapes over the years but don't have the original demo anywhere. There is a video of this one. Somewhere. Shot in our rehearsal space. Five of us on this one. The four Bad Carrots plus another guitarist. Dave Leblanc. I’m pretty sure my webmaster has the only copy of this. Shame. Who knows, maybe he’ll do something awesome with it. We’ve got this version for now. And really. Nothing to sweat about … xoRJ

lyrics

Yeah -

I wrote a ballad -
It’s gonna make you cry
I won’t play it tonight
Much to your delight
And while I’m at it
I’m gonna break some rules
I’m blowing this coop
Won’t be back tonight - yeah

Baby, you’ll get what you need
You’re knocking so hard on the door
Maybe you’ll get what you need
I just need more

‘Cause I want to see you sweat
Honey, I want to see you sweat
Sugar, I - I got to see you sweat…see you sweat

You’re like an addict
the way you chase me down
All over this town, baby
burning up both sides
You need the action
the way I need your groove
Honey, playing with you
Is like drinking liquid fire, yeah - yeah - yeah

Baby, you’ll get what you need
You’re knocking so hard on the door
Maybe you’ll get what you need
I just need more

‘Cause I - want to see you sweat
Honey, I got to see you sweat
Sugar, I - I got to see you sweat…see you sweat

See you sweat - see you sweat
Sweat, sweat, sweat, sweat ..

I’m running rampant,
Hey - I can feel your heat
Said Angel, you’re sweet
But don’t give me no jive
You’re not a dealer,
You’re just a card in play
Start walking this way, baby,
Keep your mouth shut tight, yeah, yeah, yeah

Baby, you’ll get what you need
You’re knocking so hard on the door
Maybe you’ll get what you need
I just need more - I said

Baby, you’ll get what you need
You’re knocking so hard on the door
Maybe you’ll get what you need
I just need more

‘Cause I want to see you sweat
Honey, I want to see you sweat
Sugar, I - I got to see you sweat…see you sweat

See you sweat - see you sweat -
Yeah, get down and mean it ...

Robert James Wetaskiwin, Alberta

We didn't get to test drive "Friday Night" the way we wanted to. Mr./Ms. Universe stepped in. 2020's Covid Cutie. And our upcoming seventh release "Piece Of Your Ghost" has been delayed. Expect it in mid to late February of 2021. I'll see what I can do about a single release. Something in mind ... hmmm ... xoRJ ... more
