Video of The Day – The Typical Johnsons – Wreckage

From The Typical Johnsons – This song is about commemorating a moment, this is our stand alone single, Wreckage. This is for all of us who have crashed through our collective pasts, hopefully with enough force to have created a memory and a story that stands the test of time…

Here is the song!

We’re still here… not knowing anything and doing it all wrong.

Thank you to The Ohio Recording Co. and to WiseUP Entertainment for the recording and the video…your-tuesday-alternative-new logo

Indie Rock Cinco De Mayo Fiesta 2019

The 2nd Annual “Indie Rock Fest/Cinco De Mayo Fiesta” was amazing this year and the line up was simply fantastic. While a day before the Cinco, it was a show full of good vibes, great music and a heck of a party. To call it jam packed really does not cover all of the musical goodness from the local community packed under one roof! Bands covered Americana, shoe gaze, rock and Indie Rock and Roll. Many thanks to the bands who played — A Voice of Your Own, The Boxcar Suite, The Typical Johnsons, The 1984 Draft, Neo-American Pioneers, Slow Glows and Kyleen Downes.

“Pardon Me”
I’m hungry for a line
Haven’t slept in weeks
This new found consciousness
Is driving me to think
My eyes have never been this open
But I don’t like what I see

I’ll be driving through your town
On my way to Winnipeg
I should be there by sun down
I could use a place to stay
It be so nice to see you
If that’s ok

But pardon me
If I make for poor company tonight
The road can way heavy on a mind
I apologize if the conversations light
So pardon me

I’m so tired of walking
Down this crowded road
Full of loss souls and conmen
And broken heart winos
All watching the pretty ones
Light up the night

Do you still have that old
Simply Red 45
Put it on and I’ll pour us
A couple glasses of wine
We can hold back the years
If only for awhile

But pardon me
If I make for poor company tonight
The road can way heavy on a mind
I apologize if the conversations light
So pardon me
If you don’t know the man in front of you
You know I struggle to recognize him to
A hard luck modern day fool
Sol pardon me

Is it a blessing
To finally know the truth
Or is it a curse
To know the real you

So pardon me
If I make for poor company tonight
The road can weigh heavy on a mind
I apologize if the concessions light
So pardon me
If you don’t know the man in front of you
You know I struggle to recognize him to
A hard luck modern day fool
So pardon me
So pardon me
So pardon me
