Happy New Year
Allow us to be the hundredth (or thousandth) person to wish you a Happy New Year. Here's hoping 2011 is a great one for all!
We want to get you off to a good start with the January 7MP3, our cover of Freedy Johnston's "Bad Reputation". This was recorded live at our private day&allnighter show in Orlando. Since the majority of these recordings became the Backbooth release, most of you know this show well since you were either there and/or own the music! Ross introduced "Bad Reputation" that night by saying "This is a song that reminds me of delivering pizza". It was in heavy rotation for most of us way back in the mid 90s.
If you like the song and have never heard of Freedy Johnston, you're in for a treat. Freedy has a catalog of great records, but in particular you should check out 1992's Can You Fly and 1994's This Perfect World. So many incredible songs--"Mortician's Daughter", "Responsible", "In The New Sunshine", "Across the Avenue", "This Perfect World" and of course "Bad Reputation".
Same drill as always. Download the song in this here fancy player. Please tell your friends about it--they too are welcome to download it for free! And, by all means, please post it to your Facebook, MySpace, Twitter or any other social networks you are part of. We make it easy for you--click the appropriate logo after you have entered your email and follow the prompts.
The band is gearing up for their first ever shows in Alaska in March and, like the rest of the world, trying to stay warm (even in Florida).
Enjoy 2011 and thanks for your support.
