Biography

Must Be Tuesday is an alternative rock act from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. With influences ranging from powerpop to modern rock, the style falls somewhere in between. MBT's sound, which has been described as eclectic, incorporates vocal harmonies, a full synthesized rock band, and memorable, comedic lyrics. It gets an enthusiastic response from first time listeners, as well as dedicated fans.

The line up, in the past, has been an ever-changing thing, and is currently composed of just one person: Nancy Price. The previous incarnation of the band got started quickly, with a radio interview and 200-person venue performance happening within the first eight months. With the new-found freedom that a solo act provides, Nancy is hard at work recording a demo CD, the first tracks of which will be available online as soon as they're completed. She is constantly writing new songs and improving her instrumental and vocal skills.

In addition to singing, Nancy plays the piano and guitar, writes drum and bass parts, composes and does arrangement for every song. One of her biggest strengths, though, is her lyrics, which range from hilarious to moving, hateful to joyful. By using inspiration from events in her real life, she causes the audience to relate to the songs on a personal level, making the lyrics all the more funny, or bitter, or both at once.

Lyrics

Other Rock Stars Suck

Written By: Nancy Price

I said people suck and you agreed
You didn't think to say "hey, are you talking 'bout me?"
I should have known it would end like this
Every job you've ever had you up and quit
The boss was mean or the hours were long
How cruel of me to make you sing your own damn songs
and find you opportunities to sing on stage
Where do you find musicians who act their age?
Hypocrites and drug addicts, I don't give a fuck
In fact I'm glad you're leaving because you suck

I don't need a band and I don't need you
You're dumb, and you smell like poo
You can't play with my guitar anymore
I could be a rock star if it weren't for
the fact that other rock stars suck

I said people suck and I meant it too
The top of the list is drummers like you
"Yeah, I'll join your band, it's rad and unique
Yeah, I'll join your band for a couple of weeks..."
What does commitment mean to your type?
Two jams a week as long as there's hype?
What does it take to keep your attention?
Screamo and noise? And oh, did I mention
Your attitude stinks. I don't give a fuck
In fact I'm glad you're leaving because you suck

I don't need a band and I don't need you
You're dumb, and you smell like poo
You can't play with my guitar anymore
I could be a rock star if it weren't for
the fact that other rock stars suck

You can't play in my back yard
My back yard, my back yard
You can't play in my back yard
My back yard's full

I said people suck and you agreed
You didn't think to say hey are you talking 'bout me?
But of course I was, you fucking quitter
You'll have to excuse me if I sound bitter
A year and half of constant work
gone in a moment, you fucked up jerk
This isn't a hobby, it's my fucking career
Now I have work alone and I wanna fucking cheer
No more compromises, I don't give a fuck
In fact I'm glad you're leaving because you suck

I don't need a band and I don't need you
You're dumb, and you smell like poo
You can't play with my guitar anymore
I could be a rock star if it weren't for...
I don't need a band and i don't need you
You suck and that's all you do
You can't play with my guitar anymore
I could be a rock star if it weren't for
the fact that other rock stars suck
The fact is other rock stars suck

My Boyfriend's Girlfriend (Isn't Me)

Written By: Nancy Price

There's lots of kinds of people in this world
and I'm, well, I'm not like other girls
How do I explain this properly?
My boyfriend's girlfriend isn't me

Well obviously one of them is
But there's another girl of his
And I know her and she knows me
and that would be great if it was just us three

But she has a guy who's even more pretty
and a long-distance thing in another city
He and his wife come by when they can
and they have a kid who calls me his aunt

Just when I thought it was all too crazy
I tried to draw our family tree
There's nothing wrong with extra love
But the paper wasn't big enough

Chorus:
Of all the ways I've ever dated
it's never been so complicated
The chain can extend to eternity
'cause my boyfriend's girlfriend isn't me

We spent Christmas eve with my boyfriend's dad
Christmas day with my folks and the feast they had
New Years, he went to his girlfriend's city
I mean the one who isn't me

She brought him and her other guy
to her company picnic and I won't lie
I wasn't used to being alone
so I want someone new of my own

It isn't easy to find a fling
'Cause when you hit on some tasty thing
They say "Aren't you with that guy?"
You say "Oh he doesn't mind.

Have you ever seen 'Big Love'?
Know what I mean, wink, wink, nudge, nudge..."
And they say "Oh, so you're a Mormon?"
"No! ...I'll explain from the beginning..."

Chorus

When the partners get together,
the primaries and all the others,
we give the newbies a little primer
and we all get out our day timers

Calendars as far as the eye can see.
"When can I see you?" "When are you free?"
"Who gets me on my birthday?" and then
"Does anyone have an extra pen?"

The kids have the best celebration.
Gifts from three dozen odd relations.
There's Uncle Jackie's girlfriend, Mary,
Ed who is her secondary...

Ed's new boyfriend brought along
his ex, whose fling is going strong
with someone that I used to know
and just became my boyfriend's beau...

Chorus

A couch where four can snuggle up
Suddenly isn't big enough
And even so we don't give up.
There's no such thing as too much love.

The Point Game

Written By: Nancy Price

Me and my guy have different taste.
He likes red hair and a skinny waist.
For me the goth look doesn't disappoint.
We have this game where we try to spot
all the people we think are hot
and when we do we always get a point.

A skinny guy in a band t-shirt -
I say "point."
There's a girl in a really short skirt -
He says "point."
A short haired tomboy - we both say "point."
It's nice when we agree so easily.

Chorus:
It isn't hard to find
a cutie if it's on your mind.
Do it with your partner
whatever the weather.
It makes us blush
when we get a new crush.
I know we'll keep looking,
looking forever.
The point game always
brings people together.

We add up our points. If I'm the winner
then he has to buy me dinner.
We whisper and giggle and walk hand in hand.
You should try it. Find some hotties,
cute faces and sexy bodies.
See if you find more than your partner can.

A piercing enthusiast with spiky hair -
I say "point."
A girl with visible underwear -
He says "point."
A punk rock couple - we both say "point."
There's one for you and one for me.

Chorus

Me and my guy have different taste.
He likes red hair and a skinny waist.
I like guys but he's not into that.
But there are times once in a blue moon
when the person that will make me swoon
and the one he likes will completely match.

Chorus
The point game always brings us together.
