Biography

The most interesting and perhaps unfamiliar of the new offspring is Brooklyn, New York's very own Golden Animals. Not surprisingly, this duo - comprised of mop-topped guitarist Tommy Eisner and sun-kissed drummer Linda Beecroft - is the physical embodiment of the neo-psychedelic movement: all wild hair, rustically romantic garb and sepia-toned mysticism.

Golden Animals is nothing if not, in a sense, a classic boy/girl story. Eisner tells the story of how he met Beecroft in charmingly traditional terms that make it sound as though the pair exists on a different planet than the rest of us. "We were passing each other on the street in Brooklyn one night," . "I stopped Linda because something told me to".

From that first meeting, the pair set about developing a history, finding that their music meshed as well as their personalities. They went to Europe together and spent some time wandering around the party scene in Paris and other major cities. "We are both travelers and have needed to be constantly moving. That has been part of our bond and how we have been able to stay together.

Currently Golden Animals are stationed in Joshua Tree, CA. The duo completed their debut LP "Free Your Mind and Win a Pony" out in stores 8/25. They will be touring all around the west coast this summer.

Lyrics

Take Me Home

Written By: Golden Animals (Tommy Eisner)

Don't know just where this old train will go. Leaves a fellow high or leaves him low. But I know by the sound of that old whistle blowin' I'm aboard, take me home. Through the rain and the snow, I'm aboard, take me home.

Don't know how long this old ride will last. Takes a lot of fuel and burns it fast. But I know that the train rolls me further from my past and I'm aboard, take me home. With the moon, by its glow, I'm aboard, take me home...

Home to the place where the old rebels plan. High on the hills, no shackles round their hands. Come along with me girl, y'don't have to understand, just take my hand, there ain't no plan, wherever you are be glad.

Underneath an unruly sky, it takes a lot to laugh, a train to cry. But I know that the train roars louder than a sigh and I'm aboard, take me home. With the wind, where it blows, I'm aboard, take me home...

Home to the place where the old rebels plan. High on the hills, no shackles round their hands. Come along with me girl, y'don't have to understand, just take my hand, there ain't no plan, wherever you are be glad.

Ride Easy

Written By: Golden Animals

She walkin' too heavy
She sinkin' too fast
You'd better ride easy
You're walkin' on glass

Catch a tiger in your pocket
Load a flower in your gun
For old revolutions
And those to come

I see a river,
Put your red coat on
'Cause the moon is deep and hollow
Close your eyes and I'll be there
No need to weep and wallow

Close your eyes and I'll be there (x2)

She walkin' too heavy
She clingin' to dust
Gotta go when your ready
If I'm leavin' I must

Black rabbit in the meadow
Lay a blanket on my tomb
She swallows the sunshine
I harvest the moon

I see a river,
Put your red coat on
'Cause the moon is deep and hollow
Close your eyes and I'll be there
No need to weep and wallow

Close your eyes and I'll be there (x2)

Try On Me

Leave behind what's lost and lonely

Take your prize; Take a ride
Take your time and take a...

Try On Me

Try On Me...yeah
Try On Me...and you can take it for free.

Me and Pollyanna flyin'
You sell lies and we ain't buyin'
Pass the sun to the parade now

Take a stand; Twirl your hands
In the sands and take a...

Try On Me
Try On Me
Try On Me...yeah
Try On Me...and you can take it for free.

Big Red Rose

Written By: Golden Animals

Come on over to the 3 dollar show,
they got something you wanna know.
Here comes a-Rita and she's ready to go, so lets go where warm wind blows.

They say it is the fever,
But I swear I swear I don't
Believe them at all, 'cause...

I know when I fall
I fall hard
So I try
When I fall
To fall back in line.

Oh, come on over down these big ol' stairs, they got machines to great you there. Here comes Sally with hardly a care and a ticket to the company fair.

They say she is creature
But I swear I didn't teach her at all and..

I know when I roll
I roll hard
So I try
When I roll
To roll straight in line.

When vision is clear,
Boy, it's oh so dear
How else could the truth be spied?

Here come Rosy with a big red rose,
I'm gonna plant it in the back of your toes. My boat is near and I'm ready to row, so let's go where the river goes.

They say it is the fever,
But I swear I don't
Believe them at all, 'cause...

I know when I fall
I fall hard
So I try
When I fall
To fall back in line.

When vision is clear,
Boy, it's oh so dear
How else could the truth be spied?

Now Rita's at the old-time show and Sally's a-long-time-gone y'know, but Rosy's by the garden with a ribbon and big red rose.
