Drunk And Armed - Dance With Honk E.P.

In honor of May Day 2015, Drunk And Armed is releasing a new (complete) 3 song E.P. will have you shuffling your feet, waving your arms around like you are Drunk And Armed, and stomping around just like Honk E.!  (Remember to retract your switchblades and put your guns on "safe".)

You might note these tracks don't have any guitars.  I have been recently suffering from tendinitis in my right hand, so keyboards are it here (although I did play my bass last night and am only a little sore).

Tracks
1. The Honky Dance (Alternative Extended Dance Re-Mix)

My family complained they couldn't understand the words of the original album version, which used multiple layered vocals.  They still can't!  ("My daddy is so weird!")  But here's an extended dance re-mix for your auditory enjoyment (or not).

Words: Kareem with SRL (Honking)

Drunk And Armed - "The Honky Dance"

15 years in the making.  The Honky Dance is now a reality!  It might look easy but it's not.   Although "inspired" by the Humpty Dance by the Digital Underground, I did not want a cover song, which would not have worked with all the honking, which is my favorite part. In 2002, I met a cat named Kareem, who I asked to pen a rap.  The result is a "song written by a black man sung by a white dude."  The papers (see photos below) sat around with a bunch of my stuff for years.  Occasionally, I would try to "honkify" it, but it was not until recently that I could figure out what to do with it.  I was suffering from tendinitis in my right hand, so I only played the keyboard with one hand.  The result was something I thought I could use, and I next supplied the lovely vocals.  I like it.  It sounds pretty good.  It makes me chuckle, and makes my feet feeling like stomping along.  Maybe it will for you too?

Songs for Snakes - Year of the Snake

Here's a good, solid new album that you can either download or buy in neat colored vinyl.  Although it has it's own sound, I think it compares favorably with Husker Du.  Check it out.

Keep up the good work, guys.

Drunk And Armed - "Self Indulgent Shadow" & "Wallowing Casualty Vampires"

Drunk And Armed is proud (not really) to release not just one, but two songs!  These songs are the 4th and 5th tracks of The Second Term E.P.  Now the legion of Drunk And Armed fans* can cease their annoying candle light vigil and get the fuck off my front lawn.**

"Self Indulgent Shadow" & "Wallowing Casualty Vampires"

Anyway, before getting to the music and downloads, I would actually (for once) like to write a little bit about how Drunk And Armed songs come to be.  Basically, I just start with a rhythm and/or a beat and let my no-skill fingers do the rest.  (I have talent, but I'll be dammed if I'll use it for something only I will listen to more than once.)  I basically create the framework for something I might like to listen to.  (I have very bad taste.)  Nothing illegal is consumed.  I let the words fit the music.  I then play and sing (if you can call it that) every other part in character (except B.H.O.).  I record it on an Android Tablet four track (lately) and mix it on a P.C. using Nero.  Cheap.  I have never made money.  I can do what I want.  My art is-

The Keyboard is a Roland D20.  I sometimes run it through the guitar pedal.  It's far left key no longer makes sound. I think I wore through the contact points.  I am sad.

One thing about my music inspires me: my children and my parents hate it!  Most people do. I would be disappointed otherwise.  Perhaps, No Trend listeners might like it?  I also like The Fall.

"Self Indulgent Shadow"
I think the inspiration for this song is apparent after the above screed.

* There is no legion, but heck it has the potential to grow a million-fold.  After all, any number multiplied by zero is still zero...

** Also, there is no one on my front lawn, but you probably figured that out already.

Drunk And Armed - There Will Be War

There Will Be War
The 2nd track of The Second Term E.P.

Although inspired by recent events (9/2013), the threat implied in the song is nothing new and will be heard again. Even though we don't want it, we will hear "There Will Be War".

Does anything anyone believes really matter?
No

Drunk And Armed - Happy Day Dance April 11, 2013

Drunk And Armed had a party. This dance number celebrates Thatcher's death. It's not like she was human or anything.

This is also the first track of the "The Second Term E.P." by Drunk And Armed, which will chronicle Obama's second term.
