Baked Beans And Whiskey
Jaunty, genuine punk-ish rock with a folk troubadour spirit, treating serious themes with a silly sense of humor. Deeply rooted in the Bay Area DIY community, the duo of Corbett Redford and Dan Abbott have made punk more egalitarian by promoting artists shunned by the elite punx at Maximum Rock n Roll, 924 Gilman, etc. Simple, honest songs that would fit just as well in the ‘20s (there’s even a ragtime tune!)—the everyman’s everymen, these are. Take the catchiness of Operation Ivy or Screeching Weasel, throw in the brash silliness of Tenacious D (replace Jack Black’s whining with The Dick Panthers’ flawless croon), spiced up with keen social awareness. Pirate drinking songs, moshpit anthems and square-dances abound.|
1. Dark, rollin’ strummy affair with campfire chanting backups, a Boy Named Sue-styled tongue-in-cheek narrative
2. FCC “shit”. Electric rock stomp with pipe organ and horns emerging when it intensifies, a catchy yet dark take on white privilege.
3. FCC “scoopin’ up dog shit”—jaunty strong with a cantina country vibe, all about scoopin up dog shit and shoplifting to get by
4. Furious raging punk rock, Dead Kennedys style except for the power-ballad-y bridge, searing guitar leads.
5. Bar-rock crooning about raising kids, urgent pace held back by the dramatic vocals, concludes with a spooky organ-synth outro
6. Lighthearted folksy strum, piano and trumpet come in to give it an old-timey, almost ragtime feel, a love song for vinyl records
7. 3/4 sea shanty complete with accordion, baked beans and whiskey for dinner again!
8. Starts out a grungy plod, then turns into a punk-rock anthem about how jaywalking sucks and society does too
9. Goofy folksy ballad gets dramatic, barrels right into some hardcore punk with a violin solo (!) and some guitar shredder
10. FCC “cunt” “shit” etc.—ironically, the heavy punk singalong tune’s constant refrain is “why don’t we censor the word cunt?” Gets bouncy and ska-ish in the bridge.
11. Bright cheesy powerpop with stripped-down punk sensibilities, an encouragement to smile and be happy
12. Serious, heartwrenching singalong folk—“when the last child soldier with the last case of AIDS cuts the last tree down, who will build his grave?” Epic in a Tenacious D doing “We Are The World” kind of way.
