Honesty is Sexy

Postby chris kennedy » Fri Jun 04, 2004 1:37 pm

OK...to hopefully avoid coming off like a complete jerk, I'm going to be very honest and upfront. This is my 1st post here. I am a fan of EC, I think he's amazing. I am the lead singer and bassist in Ruth Ruth, a NYC band. We've had a couple of major label CDs out, and just released our 1st indie. I'm here mainly to promote it. Sorry if that offends anyone. Just being honest. So if you're bored, please take a listen at:

Hey! Not true, POV.
After I hit it big I promise to return to this forum once a year and grace it with my presence. (I believe thats a Ralph Kramden / Honeymooners line). :wink:

Welcome and I love it! Really good from what I've heard so far and if Jim Baio is a reference to the minor actor of yesteryear I'm swooning. It brought Any Trouble to mind and that's a very nice thing indeed.

They were a band from the 80's who were often compared to Elvis Costello. Their best known song was 'Second Choice'. The lead singer and guitarist went on to work with Richard Thompson among other things of course! Welcome!

Really, really good stuff. I've been listening to Modest Mouse's Good News For People Who Love Bad News a lot lately and your music reminds me of it. Just really sharp, catchy and smart.

Welcome to the board, man! Hopefully you will enjoy hanging out here enough to be a regular presence.

And I promise you that I will try VERY hard not to press you for Rick Rubin stories.

Thanks El Vez...
ahhh, Rick Rubin.
Where to begin, where to begin?
My 2 main reasons why I wanted to be on American were: Rick Rubin & Johnny Cash. I thought any label cool enough for Johnny had to be cool. Our album on American did pretty well, we were their biggest act at radio for awhile...despite their efforts. The whole time Rick Rubin was this elusive phantom...we had no contact with him. I called him at home one time to introduce myself...bad mistake. :shock:

If memory serves, The Black Crowes had an underwhelming experience with him as well. Looks like your band has done a great job of keepin' on so hopefully it was for the best in terms of your longterm career.

A lot of Christians wear crosses around their necks. Do you think when Jesus comes back he ever wants to see a fuckin' cross? It's kind of like going up to Jackie Onassis with a rifle pendant on.
