about

Starting in 1993 and ending sometime early in the new millennium, Brothers Dave and Jim Skeel and Jim's wife Becky decided to create music while avoided getting too much sun during family vacations. Written and recorded over a number of years, these songs were written on location in Cherokee Village Arkansas, Panama City, FL, Atlanta, GA (Dave's studio) & Kansas City, MO (Jim's studio).

Many of the recordings were done on a 4 track cassette deck, utilizing a "toy" electronic drum kit and "toy" keyboard, running the guitar through a pocket amp directly into the 4 track for both guitar and bass parts and using a ghetto blaster for mixing. So, LoFi may be the best description of these songs. As the years progressed recordings were upgraded to 8 Track tape and finally 8 track digital.

What do you do when you are on vacation and get too much sun? Head for the shade, break out the recording gear and instruments and start recording. It becomes addictive and you then you plan vacations around writing and recording songs, or at least that is what these 3 did. ... more

MOVING HARD AND FAST THROUGH THE MUD AND SNOW -
RACING DOWN BLUE HIGHWAYS BY THE LIGHT OF THE MOON - THESE THIEVES DON’T TREAT ME RIGHT I FEEL REAL ABUSE - LOCKS AND WINDOWS BROKEN NOW THINK I’D LIKE TO GO HOME

THE OTHER DAY I GOT THE CHANCE -
TO SPLIT AND HAVE SOME FUN -

I’VE BEEN STOLEN BY YOUNG GUNS -
I CAN’T REMEMBER THE CIRCUMSTANCE -
I CAN’T TELL YOU WHAT THEY’VE DONE -
AND I’M SURE IT WEREN’T NO GOOD -
BUT I STILL HAD SOME FUN -…

(CHORUS)…..

NOW I’M SORRY I EVER LEFT MY HOME -
MY OWNERS TREAT ME RIGHT AND I NEVER GET COLD -

BUT THE PLANT EARTH IS STILL HERE

Track Name: ICE IN THE EYE
A cautionary tale of trying to write lyrics as a group:
This was song written after watching a terrible Charlton Heston movie about a demented sea captain. Oh, and the Talking Heads reference. We liked the sound of the line but the meaning, well we had no idea what they were saying.....

Masked Man should have been "Mast Man" but it might be "Mass Man" for all we know. Go figure.....

OUT WHERE THE WEST WAS WON AND THE SKIES ARE CLEAR RELOCATED NUTS AND FRUITS FROM OTHER STATES DRINK THEIR BEER
THEY RIDE, RIDE, RIDE, THROUGH THE PRAIRIES AND PLAINS THEY RIDE, RIDE, RIDE, TO THE MOUNTAIN SUNSETS

CONSPIRACY AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT DEPRIVING THEM OF THEIR RIGHTS

FREEMEN REQUIRE THAT THEIR WILL BE DONE
I’M GOING TO MONTANA.

SELF MADE DESPERADOES --HARD UP
DIEHARDS WITH A VENGEANCE

CONSPIRACY THEORY, FICTITIOUS OR NOT

___________________________________________________________

CLICHEVILLE
recorded in Kansas City, MO to 8 trk digital early 2000's

A BIRD IN THE HAND IS WORTH 2 IN THE BUSH
A ROLLING STONE GATHERS NO MOSS
A STITCH IN NINE SAVES TIME
AN OUNCE OF PREVENTION IS WORTH A POUND OF CURE
AS CERTAIN AS DEATH AND TAXES
BEATING YOUR HEAD AGAINST THE WALL IS A FUTILE GESTURE BIRDS OF A FEATHER FLOCK TOGETHER
BREAK A LEG
CATCH YOU LATER ALLIGATOR
YOUR DANCING’ LIKE A CAT ON A HOT TIM ROOF
DON’T LET THE DOOR HIT YOU ON THE WAY OUT
DON’T PISS INTO THE WIND
DON’T PUT OFF UNTIL TOMORROW WHAT YOU CAN DO TODAY
DON’T TAKE ANY WOODEN NICKELS
DON’T WORRY BE HAPPY
EARLY TO BED EARLY TO RISE
MAKES YOU HEALTHY WEALTHY AND WISE
YOU KNOW, GARBAGE IN, GARBAGE OUT
BUT YOU GAVE IT YOUR BEST SHOT
GRASS DOES NOT GROW ON A BUSY STREET
HE IS A FEW CARDS SHORT OF A FULL DECK
HE IS PLAYING WITH A PAT HAND
HE’S A HAYSEED
HE’S A REDNECK
I FEEL IT IN MY BONES
I FELL OFF OF THE WAGON
IF ALL OF YOUR FRIENDS JUMPED OFF THAT BRIDGE
WOULD YOU?
IF IT AIN’T BROKE DON’T FIX IT
IF THE SHOE FITS, WEAR IT
I’M A TEETOTALER, HA!
I’M HIGHER THAN A KITE
IT AIN’T OVER UNTIL THE FAT LAY SINGS
IT DEPENDS ON WHOSE OX IS BEING GORED
IT’S NOTHING TO WRITE HOME ABOUT
MAKE HAY WHILE THE SUN SHINES
HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF MILITARY INTELLIGENCE
MY DADDY ALWAYS SAID, ONCE BITTEN TWICE SHY
ONE BAD APPLE SPOILS THE BATCH YOU KNOW
BUT YOU GOT TO TAKE IT ONE DAY AT A TIME
BECAUSE OPPOSITES ATTRACT
AND IF YOU DON’T, IT’S OUT OF THE FRYING PAN AND INTO THE FIRE
SHE’S AS PRETTY AS A FOOT
TAKE IT ONE DAY AT A TIME
THE CHECK IS IN THE MAIL
THE CORN IS KNEE HIGH BY THE 4TH OF JULY
THE EARLY BIRD CATCHES THE WORM
THE FUTURE WAITS FOR NO MAN
THE GRASS IS ALWAYS GREENER ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE FENCE
TIME MOVES ON
TIMING IS EVERYTHING
TOMORROW IS ANOTHER DAY
BUT WE DID OUR BEST
WHAT DO YOU GET SOMEONE WHO HAS EVERYTHING?
WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET
WHAT ME WORRY?
YOU CAN DRESS ME UP BUT YOU CAN’T TAKE ME OUT
YOU CAN LEAD A HORSE TO WATER, BUT YOU CAN’T MAKE HIM DRINK
YOU CAN’T JUDGE A BOOK BY IT’S COVER
I LOOK LIKE SOMETHING THE CAT DRAGGED IN
A BIRD IN THE HAND IS WORTH 2 IN THE BUSH
A ROLLING STONE GATHERS NO MOSS
A STITCH IN NINE SAVES TIME
AN OUNCE OF PREVENTION IS WORTH A POUND OF CURE
AS CERTAIN AS DEATH AND TAXES
BEATING YOUR HEAD AGAINST THE WALL IS A FUTILE GESTURE BIRDS OF A FEATHER FLOCK TOGETHER
BREAK A LEG
CATCH YOU LATER ALLIGATOR
YOU LOOK LIKE YO’RE DANCING ON A HOT TIM ROOF
DON’T LET THE DOOR HIT YOU ON THE WAY OUT
DON’T PISS INTO THE WIND
DON[T PUT OFF UNTIL TOMORROW WHAT YOU CAN DO TODAY DON’T TAKE ANY WOODEN NICKELS
DON’T WORRY, BE HAPPY
EARLY TO BED, EARLY TO RISE, MAKES A MAN HEALTHY WEALTHY AND WISE
YOU KNOW, GARBAGE IN, GARBAGE OUT
BUT WE GAVE IT OUR BEST SHOT
GRASS DOES NOT GROW ON A BUSY STREET
I AM A FEW CARDS SHORT OF A FULL DECK
AND I’M PLAYING WITH A PAT HAND
AND I’M A HAYSEED
I’M A REDNECK
AND I FEEL IT IN MY BONES
I FELL OFF OF THE WAGON
BUT I’M A TEETOTALER
I’M HIGHER THAN A KITE
IT’T AIN’T OVER UNTIL THE FAT LADY SINGS
IT ALL DEPENDS ON WHOSE OX IS BEING GORED
IT’S NOTHING TO WRITE HOME ABOUT
I’M GOING TO MAKE THE HAY WHILE THE SUN SHINES
HEY BY THE WAY I’M A MEMBER OF MILITARY INTELLIGENCE
