ChimpJive

I came across these recently. My brother and I formed a band back in my first year of college '98. I was going thru some shit at the time, it's funny to listen to the mindset I had way back then and how I used to handle things. We toured for a summer, an incredible one at that. Every time we'd walk into Kansas dive bars we swore the type of crowds would hate our music and eventually beat the shit out of us. The funny thing was by the end of the night we'd have em all dancing around, drunk of their asses, kickin their boots and having a great time.

We recorded these in the studio before we went on tour so we got better by the end of the tour, my other tracks are scratched, the ones my brother wrote. I'm off alot of the time as I was sick when we recorded and as cheesy as some of the lyrics are it's been really good to revisit them. Hope you all enjoy: Had to make them video files cuz this damn thing doesn't post MP3's; maybe I just haven't figured it out. Quality is a little poor.

You Don't Mean

This one's so bitter, but man it cracks me up! Starts a little slow but it picks up. High school romance.

More Than Ever Before

First attempt at something a little more serious. Haha, man I was F'n down in the dumps then. GOOD TIMES!!!

It's pleases me to know I'm not the same person I was back then. He was a good guy, just kind of a dick and bit confused.
