(La-day-la, my boyfriend's back)



sounds like: (dur hey. what else would it sound like?)

Erica sez: this is surprisingly autobiographical.i kid,i kid. I've NEVER done anything like this. Certainly not. Nope.

Cassie sez: I have. but i didn't care if he found out. Also,let's be clear: I didn't write this tripe. It's all Erica.

karoliena sez: see,I wouldn't bother with a secret affair. If the guy didn't want to join too,well then he didn't deserve me in the first place.

Mariko sez this song took so many takes. I got the giggles and kept laughing though the entire thing. If you listen close,you can hear me towards the very end of the song. We left it in though. We all thought it fit the spirit of the song.


cotton candy elephants-

(Wah-oh)
(Wah-oh)
(Wah-oh)
Oooh ive been so very lonely.
(So lonely)
It's just little old me.
(Little old me)
My poor poor heart is going to droop.
(Poor poor heart)
Its clear that you have flown the coop.
(Bye bye)

(Wah-oh)
(Wah-oh)
(Wah-oh)
(Now its time to get in trouble)
(Going to crack open a bottle)
(Down the hatch it keeps flying)
(Aaand i think that i am dying)
(Sadly, im just drunk and crying)

(Wah-oh)
(Wah-oh)
(Wah-oh)
At first it was so neat.
(So neat)
You're outta my mind,now i can sleep
(I can't sleep)
But when i stop the drink,the hours start to creep.
(The hours start to Creep)
Im a night owl,baby. Hooooot
(Hoo hoo hooot)

(Wah-oh)
(Wah-oh)
(Wah-oh)
(Now its time to get in trouble)
(Going to crack open a bottle)
(Down the hatch it keeps flying)
(Aaand i think that i am dying)
(Sadly, im just drunk and crying)

(Wah-oh)
(Wah-oh)
(Wah-oh)
I think now I've started,i can't stop.
(Can't stop)
Fill me up with liquor all the way to the top.
(Tippy tippy top)
Tomorrow night im not taking a chance.
(Not taking a chance.)
I'm drinking until i see cotton candy elephants.

(Wah-oh)
(Wah-oh)
(Wah-oh)
(Now its time to get in trouble)
(Going to crack open a bottle)
(Down the hatch it keeps flying)
(Aaand i think that i am dying)
(Sadly, im just drunk and crying)

sounds like:




Erica Sez: the situation is fictional,but the idea comes from a real place. You ever have a rather, spirited weekend pounding down the spirits? Then come Sunday night,you sober up just can't sleep? You toss and turn all night. If you're lucky Monday night is fine. Anyways,that's what this is all about. But set to a super cute song.



review
This was sold as an authentic take on the famous 60's girl group sound,but ended up being just another Erica penned project. While,it may be up for debate if the subject matter of the original groups like this song about would hold up today,it would have been nice to see. Instead,we get two songs about infidelity and binge drinking. Something tells me this wouldn't fly back in the day. The subject matter is what holds this back. People don't want to be bummed out when listening to this type of music.

That being said...this is 6 and a half minutes of pure, sugary goodness. The famed Phil Spector wall of sound recording method is perfectly replicated. The group sounds HUGE, slick, and yet very organic. The backing band bounces right along, worming it's way into your psyche.
The vocals complete the infection . Erica,Cassie, karoliena,and Mariko harmonize to near manic perfection. Lead duties are taken over by Cassie summers. It's been awhile since we've heard her,but she remains a force to be reckoned with. Much like group mate, Erica, there are some very pleasing vocals underneath their typical punk rock growl. ( You two can sing. Quit pretending to sound tough) of course,we already knew Mariko and karoliena could sing. We were surprised to see Mariko kind of hang out in the background though.

The women were having a good time making this,and it shows. Even the non parody song comes through with smiles you can hear. Who knows the shelf life this genre or project will have,but it's fun while it's around.

Available as a free download or made to order 7" record. The physical copies aren't limited editions,but each one is custom made . Available now from bee's knees military industrial complex for a better tomorrow.




ooc:compliment my art. you dont want to know how long i spent making it.

OOC: All joking aside if chris did a song I would want it to be like this. Man the gems like He knows that I been cheating/ all the kitties I been eating/ Born rhyming with porn? I thought cotton candy elephants lead to my boyfriend is back. It was funny and and also catchy.

Cara: This is majestic. If this leads to a tour, I would very much like to be on that bus even just as a provider of beverages and snacks. It'd be a fucking riot!

OOC: I admire the artwork. I have zero editing/Photoshop skills so it hurts me when people on here are so damn good at it. Great stuff!

Dustyn: I LOVE the songs! Motown girl groups are some of my favourite acts to listen to. These are like...naughtier more adult versions of the "approved" music I was allowed to listen to as a kid so it makes me giggle hehe. I don't know if I can sing My Boyfriend's Back out loud though because well...I don't eat kitty...of any kind!

1.All i want for christmas
2.oh,holy night (Mariko on lead)

overall,sounds like: (though we all should agree only mariah carey should do this song.)


review
tis the season for cashgrabs. nothing is more tacky than a christmas album. but here it is, the final nail in the coffin of any punk rock cred the hess clan had. music reviewer snark out of the way...this is pure fun. being the second outing from the cass-ettes,they are well on their way to sugary sweet pop greatness. At least as far as Christmas albums are concerned.

This time around we hear a lot more Mariko. Its a welcome addition since you can practically see the big grin on her face as she sings.(much like her sister,she was clearly meant to do something other than rock music) this takes the festive levels to near deadly levels. We wont go song by song,as for the most part everyone knows these songs.


Which brings us to the real downside of this album. While it is fun,gorgeously produced,and guaranteed to sell...do we really need new versions of these songs? Will the cass-ettes ever take the place of Bing Crosby,Dean martin,or Mariah Carey? No. No they wont. And yeah,the cass-ettes swing for the fences right from the get go.
In the Cass-ettes take on "all i want for Christmas ",they opt for a very Andrews sisters sound. This gives a bouncy and vintage ww2 sound to things. In an alternate reality and timeline,this would be perfect to airdrop on allied forces for christmas 1943. But its not an alternate reality. Mariah Carey's version does exist and people probably wanted to hear cassie really belt this tune out.

One of the high points here is "Santa Claus is coming to town." which is basically the jackson five arrangement with Mariko taking on Michael's part. Mariko's rather high pitched voice really works hear and carries all the energy you would want for this song.

For the Chuck berry classic," run run Rudolph " Erich hess is brought in to provide guitar..with karoliena's vocals occasionally rising above the rest of her bandmates,this could easily be ab atomic war bride song....but you know,good.

We've heard cassie and karoliena do "baby its cold outside " before but its still just as cute as ever here. The pair ooze charisma and chemistry,as they should. They have been married for years.


Cassie's "Santa baby "doesn't change a word of thr song,but makes you want to usher the younger children out of the room. Va va voom!

They close with a very bizarre choice. of the vandals' "oi to the world ". To close this album of 60's flavored pop songs,they end with.....punk rock?! Not just punk rock,but straight up oi style. I guess the idea being its 3am at the Christmas party and you're drunk and realize the people across the street Support arsenal and you support hibs. While sure,the song and holiday season are about togetherness,you don't give a shit and want to kick the mirrors off his car. Why is This song here?!?!?


available now as a free digital download or on green and red splatter vinyl from bee's knees military industrial complex for a better tomorrow's mail order.

oh. and that vinyl record? ITS FUCKING SCENTED!!!!!
