Appears On (Mixes): Dub Club: Matt's 2005 Best Of -- Streets Named For New England Trees

Song Notes: Dub Club: Matt's 2005 Best Of -- Streets Named For New England Trees: The Ditty Bops will hopefully have a new record out very shortly, and with luck, this track will be on it. The Ditty Bops put out the best record of 2004 as I pretty much say to anyone who will listen—but, unfortunately, I can't put any cuts from that record on, since I got into them in the tail end of 2004. However, this track was actually recorded live (at the Café Du Nord) in February 2005, so it fits! I love this song—it's so catchy and full of the Ditty Bops' trademark witty lyrics. The cool thing with them, too, is that not only are they taper-friendly (they've got a huge archive of live stuff at, but they keep writing songs. Someone at their official messageboard has kept track of all the non-album songs they've played at shows, and if they wanted to, their next CD could be a 3 disc set, with a special bonus disc of covers, and they'd STILL have stuff left over for the third album. And from getting the stuff from -- rarer still, they don't have any clunkers. How in the hell does that happen?! -Rev. Syung Myung Me

You KNEW it was coming! The new Ditty Bops album came out this week, and what's the first Mp3 I post? A cut from the new record! So there you go! The new record isn't quite as good as the first, but since that was the best record of 2004, that's a pretty tall order—and it's STILL outstanding, so definitely pick it up. The sound is a bit closer to the live arrangements than the first record, though it was still produced by Mitchell Froom as was the first. Anyway, this has been my favorite Ditty Bops song for quite some time after hearing it live, so I'm really glad it's been put on the record—and this is a cool (almost Spike Jones in places) arrangement.- Rev. Syung Myung Me
