no room for hipsters

the occupation of Ashley and Levon

01 Mark Your Words

This is one to me feels half like a Cole Porter tongue-in-cheek number for a musical, and half like a furious Ben Folds pounding.  This demo is very shaky on tempo and has some sloppy fingering, but it manages to get the song across.  I play it now on a wurlitzer and I’ve slowed it down into a groove.  Still, I think it could be a Springstein or Billy Joel sounding arena-rock sort of song if I had enough guitar players and a drummer that played with bicycle gloves.

at the Square Room, right about when this song was written
