Rob Moss Great, fun tunes filled with humor and imagery.

Sal creates a set of rock 'n' roll pulp fiction characters to inhabit his songs with "The Boy with the Amplifier Head," "Two Headed Girl," "Who's That Girl" and "Starleen." And "Teenage Damage" shoves all that attitude into the first person.

"Big Wax Lips" will make you spit out your milk. And "Beat Club" is the place we all wish we could go to. In fact, I'll meet you there Friday night! But right now, I'm jumping around to "Rock Candy." Favorite track: Rock Candy.

about

memory, manifestation, dreams
schooldays, Saturdays, Barney’s jukebox
a carnival for the uncool,
2 headed girl, boy with the amplifier head,
starleen the trailer park queen
and Loudah’s friend Rock Candy down at the Beat Club
record store candy store…jaw teasers and big wax lips
the 45 skips
the beauty of discovery when the world was new
dancing home thru the dark October streets
and rock n roll was the center of everything
in memory manifested dreams
