One day Rockstar got a gig. Rockstar needed a band. Positions were filled, schedules changed, practices planned, but alas, when practice time came, Rockstar was nowhere to be found. . .
After replacing Rockstar (not a hard thing for they couldn't find him) they trudged onward gigging under totally forgettable names such as The Derailers, Camel-Toad, Cronilingus, Blow Hole and other unmentionables. (Enough Nun references.)
With the band's predeliction toward certain of the liquid variety of fermentation, The Lushtones were born, or rather poured from a sifter depending on your perspective. What a awful long loud strange hangover it's been. . .
With a mass of (OH MY GOD) cover songs (WHERE BANDS LEARN THEIR CRAFT) ranging from Ray Charles to The Beatles to Joe Walsh to INXS to Nirvana to (GASP) their own ORIGINAL TRACKS, you'd have to have lived under a rock (HAR HAR) for the last half-century not to like SOMETHING these Lushtones play.
With live shows resembling the uncorking of a new years champagne bottle, and sounding likewise, crowds were wooed by the barely containable froth that spilled from The Lushtones ever-refilling cup of barley madness. And certain of these places (who shall remain nameless) keep asking The Lushtones back. One can only wonder. . .
And then a Studio was ransacked, a recording engineer was beaten and hog-tied, and Trouser was born. A five song primer into the vast world of LUSHTONES. Songs of economic, social and religious issues done in the way only The Lushtones could do them. FROTHY.
With the advent of the Snake a mythology was born. A snake drinking a martini? INDEED! But Trouser (his name) is NOT your typical snake. He is otherworldly, erethrel, intanigable. He is. . .(GASP) A LOGO! Trouser is also the muse behind The Book Of Lush.
(In Trouser's One Eye Mind he sees seven zippers, zippers that can only be opened from the outside. And Trouser wants YOU to open the zippers so he can be FREE. Yes friends, through genetic engineering and the beauty of cross-marketing and product placement research, The Seven Zippers Of Trouser is comming to a video gaming store near you! Just in time for Christmas 2007!)
So there you have it, the condensed Chapter One of The Legend of The Lushtones. Read it now before Barnes & Nobel charge an arm and a leg for the Unauthorized knockoff version. SLURP
