Send Us Your Bedhead Photos!

In honor of the artwork on the upcoming “WAVING KISSYHEAD!!, Vol. 2 & 1” CD, coming along in a few weeks, we’re having a BEDHEAD PHOTO CONTEST!! A bedhead photo is a photo you take of yourself first thing in the morning, before you’re really awake, usually in the bathroom. Needless to say, the results […]

Put a Smile On Your Own Damn Face

“Make Yourself Happy“- the Chandler Travis Philharmonic from their new digital-only EP, “Waving Kissyhead Vol. 1“, recorded by Ducky Carlisle with Joe Stewart at Dimension Sound in Jamaica Plain. I’m kind of surprised I ended up writing a song with this particular groove -shows once again what little control I have over what I do. […]

We All Man, We All Human

“Human“- the Chandler Travis Philharmonic from their new digital-only EP, “Waving Kissyhead Vol. 1“, recorded by Ducky Carlisle with Joe Stewart at Dimension Sound in Jamaica Plain. The arguably brilliant lyric to this one was penned by my friend and occasional golfing buddy, playwright/director/wunderkind Gip Hoppe, whom I keep trying to talk into stuff but […]

Which One Would You Save?

“Your Wife and Mother“- the Chandler Travis Philharmonic from their new digital-only EP, “Waving Kissyhead Vol. 1“, recorded by Ducky Carlisle with Joe Stewart at Dimension Sound in Jamaica Plain. This is a cover of a song I first heard a few years ago, thanks to my good friend Rob Hart, the Bully of Broadcasting, […]

It’s E!

“E” – the Chandler Travis Philharmonic, from their current digital-only EP, “Waving Kissyhead, Vol. 1”, recorded by Ducky Carlisle with Joe Stewart at Dimension Sound in Jamaica Plain, MA.

“E” has always been a crowd favorite, but we play it quite rarely because a.) it’s quite loud and b.) it instantly trashes my voice. Always […]

I Got To Move (dub version)

“I Got To Move (dub version)” -“That’s That” outtake, recorded and mixed by Rikki Bates, 1986-ish. Actually, I think I might’ve had a hand in mixing this one, too -seem to remember being in on it in Robert MacNamara’s basement way back when -but it was basically Rikki’s deal, and I absolutely love it, have […]

I Got To Move (The Lester Version)

“I Got to Move“- Lester – recorded by Chris Blood at Trout Towers, circa 1992. Lester was a fabulous little band that only lasted a couple years in the early nineties, comprised of Steve Wood, Jay Cournoyer, Cliff Letsche, and myself. We made one album, the eponymously entitled “Lester”, that eventually came out as part […]

I Got To Move (Philharmonic version)

“I Got To Move” – the Chandler Travis Philharmonic, recorded live at the Midway by yours truly using my patented Horrend-O-phonic sound process (a beat up old Sony portable cassette deck) sometime in the late nineties. and originally featured on RadioBall #4, “Miss America Presents the Chandler Travis Philharmonic“. Great work from the rhythm section, […]

I Got To Move (“classic”)

“I Got to Move“- the Incredible Casuals, from “That’s That” (Demon Records, transferred from vinyl by P.J. O’Connell)- recorded by Rikki Bates. This is probably the most commonly heard version of “I Got To Move”, which I think of as the Prince version (apparently a phase I was going through at the time!), and it’s […]

I Got To Move (original version)

“I Got To Move” -the Incredible Casuals, from “New Hats For Summer”, #2 in the Inedible Casserole series, recorded by Rikki Bates.

We have five completely different versions of this one, by three different bands (3 by the Casuals and 1 each by the Chandler Travis Philharmonic and by Lester), and I always thought it […]
