Happy 80th Elvis – here´s Riding with Elvis
Today it´s 80 years since Elvis Presley was born. And today we´re releasing our new single called “Riding with Elvis” on World Wide Vibe Records. A NYC label run by Phil Gammage, who used to play with the amazing A Certain General in the 80´s. This is a digital single and it´s available on all major online outlets.
“Riding with Elvis in a battered blue pickup truck, rapping about how lateley we´re down on Lady Luck.” Yes, we wanted to pay tribute to the King in a song. Hope you reckon we somewhat succeeded. At least we did try. And the new single´s taking us to NYC again, playing a label night for World Wide Vibe Records February 28th at the Sidewalk Café. We´re also playing at the Bowery Electric 4th March.
“You can call me on the telephone or leave me a note down at Harvest Home.” Now Harvest Home, that´s my (Hawk) local. And that´s where the release party is Monday 12 January.
“Jamming with Janis in a sleazy old downtown bar, she says that touch of your fingers would carry you far.” Janis Joplin´s always been huge inspiration for me (Hawk) and I´ve had a soft spot for her since I saw a documentary on her when I was 12. So her being in this song is most fitting, I reckon (Hawk).
