Lyrics

Motorhome

Written By: Nick Stanecki

When I'm down
I'm not feelin groovy
I don't wanna watch
another movie
just let me lay down
and go to sleep

When i'm down,
Not feelin groovy
I don't wanna watch
another movie
Just let me lay down
and let those dreams all in my head

Livin in a motorhome
He's just another happy face rolling stone

Sounds Like Hello

Written By: Nick Stanecki

Lookin out your window
Wondering when to go home
There's a fine line I'm hopin I don't cross
Lighting up a candle
Light within potential
There's a clock on the wall and
It's way past when I was gone
It sounds like a hello
But tastes like a good bye
It seems like I'm so far away
Feels like I'm still inside
Don't you worry anymore
If things had turned out any worse
I'm pretty sure we'd be dead
So save it for your better cause
Not savin on a penny jar
Paying off that jailer in your head
It sounds like a hello
but tastes like a good bye

Demolition Derby

Written By: Nick Stanecki

I wanna tell you that I'm feeling bad
Took a long second look and yep, the story is sad
They wanna tell you that it's medicine
So now it's a pill it was a bottle of gin
They're talking crazy, kind of money you see
When your dreaming 'bout winning on the lottery
You got your payment w/ the coverage at hand
But you feel like dying 'cuz you know you can
Cuz you know you can
How can I salvage any of this?
I could not take one more twist
In the story that they sell
And they sell so well
Old man senior lost his leg to bomb
Things ain't been the same since Vietnam
Son's a little crazy, got a habit and a baby
Don't you think he can't see the setting sun
Calm the dog, there's trouble ahead
Doctor says that pretty soon you're gonna be dead
Trying to be strong, but I can not stand
And I feel like dying cuz I know I am
Cuz I know I am

Deep

Written By: Nick Stanecki

I've been living on a razor's edge
I've been feeding on week old bread
I've been running on fumes my friend
I've been living with what was left
It's alright
It's what we wanted more
It's what we traded for
More time in an endless race
More time

I was thinking 'bout what we're paying for
I was thinking that we could be getting more
All we know is it feels like we're owned or owe
Plow and plunder just to build another crappy road
It's what we wanted more
It's what we traded for
More time in an endless race
More time

Full Moon Soul

Written By: Nick Stanecki

Have i told you
you're my ball and chain?
i wanna run away w/ you
The sight of you can make me
get all crazy
gotta go and stay w/ you
See that full moon hangin over us
Like it's got some deep control on us
There's no plan for leaving
no, no, no
we're still hangin, waitin on
a full moon soul

Tomorrow morning i don't wanna leave
i wanna run away w/ you
I feel without a panic attack
i wanna put away a whiskey or two
See that full moon hangin over us
Like it's got some deep control on us
There's no plan for leaving
no, no, no
we're still hangin, waitin on
a full moon soul

I've got a feeling that something's on
In the yellow everything is new
It's like a tide of everything you want
Gonna put away a beer or two
See that full moon hangin over us
Like it's got some deep control on us
There's no plan for leaving
no, no, no
we're still hangin, waitin on
a full moon soul

Discography

2013- Against the Grain

Centered around CRT's acoustic recordings, the first half of the disc is a live acoustic performance from 2013. This groovy yet haunting show was recorded on Max Ink Radio while on location broadcasting from The Willy Street Pub in Madison, WI. The songs feature a full band including 2 double basses and additional guest guitar. The second half of the disc is a selection of CRT acoustic studio recordings. Some of the tracks are alternate mixes or remastered versions chosen by the band for "Against the Grain".

2012- Wisconsin Stomp Rock

This CD features collaborations with Pat Paterson, Subatomic, Venice Gas House Trolley, Tim Peeters and Phil Kegley. Part acoustic and part electric, all attitude. Wisconsin Stomp Rock. "Bowed bass and vibraphone on Deep add a sinister intrigue to the already eerie, menacing, slower tempo and ominous lyrics. Although in a different musical mindset, many of these songs leave a Nick Cave or Tom Waits impression via a certain sense of outr" -Sal Serio-Maximum Ink

2011 - Brainwash

Our 2nd CD "Brainwash" is up for Alternative album of the year in Madison. It is adventurous, dangerous, leathery, soft, and soaked in alcohol. No, seriously it is 8 songs we wrote during last year. Touring around and playing shows def. had a big influence on the tunes.

2010 - Sounds Like Hello EP

Our acoustic EP "Sounds Like Hello" is available for FREE download at Reverbnation in the music player..

You just need to be on our email list to get it!
It's 4 songs of acoustic only, sidetracked, lookin at the sky, stripped down rock n' roll that we made for fun. For diversion, CRT did a recording session in december 2010. It was a weekend long session at James' parent's cabin, witch by the way, was unbelievably cool of them to let us use. We moved our tape machine and console out to the cabin along with acoustic only instruments. The 4 tunes were written and rehearsed in the week before the session, and are therefore in a raw, acoustic, analog form. Thanks much to Dave for the Harmonica! Please enjoy... There may be a CD form in the future, not sure yet.

2010 - Counter Culture Redux

The band's debut CD Counter Culture Redux showcases their sound in 8 tracks that take the listener through a library of shredding riffs and driving rhythms, complete with in studio improvisation that harks of the late 60s, early 70s west coast progressive scene. Its interesting to note that, in fact, the record was recorded on analog tape and mixed on an analog console before ever converting it to digital format. This is not only uncommon in modern music, it adds to the raw, no trickery sound of the band, exemplified shamelessly on this recording. hard rocking songs with a uniquenessyou all do shine as a live band. - Alex J. Berry - RedGorilla Music
