When I was a kid my parents once thought it was a swell idea to give me a keyboard for Christmas. You remember those fire red Yamaha keytars? Yeah, one of those. Not that I had ever asked for one but you know, they must’ve thought it was a good idea. It wasn’t. I messed around with it for a bit and then forgot all about it. What I ended up playing though kinda sounded like the synth sounds on Pedals Of Our Pirate Ships’ album, “A Place To Stay”. Believe me when I say that this is not a compliment.

Apparently this used to be an acoustic act but they went with electric guitars this time around. So there’s that alongside drums and a vocalist who can’t seem to choose between singing or just plain reciting the lyrics and so he ends up doing something kind of in between. When done right, this could be funny (think Atom & His Package). This one’s quaint, it’s cutesy… but other than that I can’t seem to find a lot of redeeming features about this one.
