Ten years gone. Remembering over 1800 lost lives in New Orleans. Please #share

Voodoo Mouth by Alamantra featuring Laura Holley Stansell: vocals, Stephen Casteel: guitar, Andrew Reid: bass, Kenneth Rolex Shiflett: drums, Bobby Shiflett: guitar. Words and music: Bobby Shiflett

One mere mortal's broken rhyme tell the tale of the life and times
In the age of the voodoo mouth
Gaze upon a scene of death; shocked and awed with baited breath
And on the scene live accounts
Hypnotized! hypnotized! frames and plots and lies and lies
We'll be back with a body count
The story broke and we got it all
From Hiroshima to the Berlin Wall
It's your world but we're in charge
Brought to you by your favorite credit card

By my blood I will tell the levees broke and the towers fell
I swear I saw it all on my TV
From New York to New Orleans times were hard and life was mean
In the golden age of misery
Some folks looked for food to eat; while others died out in the street
Our cameras caught all the tragedy
The bottle broke and the truth leaked out
Fires out west and floods down south
Mojo risin' in the east
While Little George rode astride the beast

What if your life was blown away by a hurricane
And everyone you knew was washed away
And no-one came for days and days
Just to see if you were ok?

One mere mortal's broken dream feed the fire of worldly things
Oh the schemes of the voodoo mouth
Does not forget, cannot forgive: suffer not to let live
On the scene live accounts
A million zombies on a chain curse each other and share their pain
We'll be back with the body count

The deal was done and they had their way
Then on to Baghdad and Guantanamo Bay
With Haliburton and hell to pay
Spat from the voodoo mouth

What if your life was blown away by a hurricane
And everyone you knew was washed away
And no-one came for days and days
Just to see if you were ok?

We thought today would be a wonderful day to share some of what we're working on. The Other Day have posted some scratch tracks from the recording project that is under way at Avondale Sound. These are all live -in the room recordings- that we did while working on the drums. They're a little bit rough around the edges and incomplete arrangements but they do keep it real and this is what we sound like live. The three that we've posted are: Body Surfer/Another Cha Cha Cha, The Cosmos (Wasn't Made in a Day). and Unencumbered. The performers include the incredibly talented Jennifer Skates on vox and flute, along with original Alamantra alumni: Andrew Reid, Kenneth Rolex Shiflett and myself. We hope you will check them out (we'd love to know what you think), and also have a lovely & enjoyable weekend.

The Other Day

The Other Day is: Jennifer Skates: Vocals, Flute, Trumpet, Music, Lyrics | Randy Blythe: Drums | Jeff Waites: Bass | Gary McCormick: Keys| Bobby Shiflett: Guitar, Vocals, Music, Lyrics, Catt Shiflett: Lyrics Delivering an intriguing mix of rhythmic textures and potent lyrics, The Other Day incorporates elements of Nu Jazz, Alt Pop, Bossa Nova, and Blues. Based in Birmingham, Alabama, their music is the sort of thing you might imagine at a posh California soiree, while in the distance, beatnik musicians softly play around a bonfire on the beach below. All the grooves are robust and provocative--some warm and mellow, some dark and punchy, and some with a reverent flavor of Memphis Blues and Soul, Southern Classic Rock, Reggae, early 20th century music or French cabaret. Please listen to our demos, recorded live during one of our infamous Saturday-night living room rumba sessions. Mixed in-house, they aren't studio quality but they are genuine and true.Thanks for listening!
