The trifecta of shows last weekend provided the perfect opportunity to debut several of the songs on the new album in a live setting. In between the occasionally confused and surprised faces of the un-initiated race spectators were the always-appreciated smiles, laughs, and arm-pumping from the spectators and racers.
“Pro Card Reject” was a favorite among the post-party crowd and “Me and My Chamois” (“We go together like Captain and Tennille, sometimes I’d swear this thing is made out of chenille…” earned the most often overheard, “what did he just say?”
For those of you who asked about the title track, yes, “No Sleep ‘Til Kona” is a cover of the Beastie Boy’s “No Sleep ‘Til Brooklyn” (which, incidentally, was a play on the fabled Motörhead album, “No Sleep ’til Hammersmith” for you music history buffs).
Limelight License Confirmation for Making and Distributing Limited Phonorecords
Composition: No Sleep til Brooklyn
Actually, it’s not so much a cover, since we re-wrote the lyrics, but nonetheless to keep Ironband in good standing with all applicable licensing and copyright laws, we did, in fact, apply to the Beastie Boys and Polygram Records for a license to distribute our own recording that song. Oh yes, this is the big time. Super big time.
