Biography

Every thursday night in historic Mohegan Colony NY a few musicians would meet to play on an outdoor stage for anyone who would pass by. Often the nights music would feature members playing Hank Williams, Carter family, Johnny Cash and other old time favorites.
When the weather got cold the few remaining participants moved indoors and decided to be a band.
All band members have roots in punk rock and then felt the gravitaional pull towards American roots traditional music.
The banned takes influences from The Beatles, Gram Parsons, Uncle Tupelo, the Byrds, the Jayhawks, Teenage Fanclub,
Whiskeytown, Ramones and The Replacements, finding a balanced blend of acoustic instruments and raw energy.

Lyrics

Rachael

Written By: Lyle Puente

Rachael tells me, tells me things
Rachael mentioned, about her leaving
Rachael says that, times run out
Rachael knows about, things you do

She's..... opening books up
She's.....closing all doors up
She's....writing letters
She's....packing her bags

Rachael told me, you break rules
Rachael asked me, what I 'd do
Rachael begged me, knows I would
Rachael knows me, things I'd do

She's..... opening books up
She's.....closing all doors up
She's....writing letters
She's....packing her bags

Rachaels resting, time goes by
Rachael asked me, did I do
Rachaels resting, she knows I did
Rachael knows me, time goes by

She's..... opening books up
She's.....closing all doors up
She's....writing letters
She's....packing her bags

Rachael knows time......
Rachael knows time......
Rachael knows time......
Rachael knows time......

In Case you Fall

Written By: Lyle Puente

Don't tell Eddie, that you're seeing me
When he see's that money, he'll kill you
Put it away, Don't tell a soul
Just pay the Bill and don't say anything

I'm standing in the shadows
I'll wait right here
I'm standing in the shadows
Just in case you fall

You could have called, last time was bad
You know, he might come back soon
We can run, no shame in that
Say the word, you know I'm there

I'm standing in the shadows
I'll wait right here
I'm standing in the shadows
Just in case you fall

$100 dollars and a tank full of gas
if were careful, we can make it last
Put your coat on, and run with me
it's that easy, if you let it be

I'm standing in the shadows
I 'll wait right here
I'm standing in the shadows
Just in case you fall

Run, we can run, we can run
Run, we can run, we can run
Run, we can run, we can run
Run, we can run, we can run

She Dreams in Every Color

Written By: Lyle Puente

Doesn't Mind if she is lost
Watching for all new things
She can sometimes make a wrong turn
Watching me, watching back

She dreams of every color
She dreams of everywhere
She dreams in vivid color
She dreams of everywhere

Takes her time, when she goes upstairs
Watching every step
she notices everything
watching everything

She dreams of every color
She dreams of everywhere
She dreams in vivid color
She dreams of everywhere

There are colors on the clouds
there are colors in her eyes
there are colors on her mind
there are colors in her eyes

She dreams of every color
She dreams of everywhere
She dreams in vivid color
She dreams of everywhere

Glad I had my Gun

Written By: Lyle Puente

caught up

Caught up in a heat wave
Caught up with someone
Caught up with some trouble
glad I had my gun

Talk about the Glory
Talk about the gun
I didn't kill nobody
I don't owe anyone

Run for the money
run for the gun
Run for the glory
running from someone

Talk about the Glory
Talk about the gun
I didn't kill nobody
I don't owe anyone

I found my religion
waiting for a train
Can't find good shelter
washing in the rain
if I come clean
before I die
God'll save me
and my soul will fly

Meet me in the Park

Written By: Lyle Puente

Meet me in the park

I'm asking you to meet me in the park
Meet me there and we can figure out
Maybe we can figure out a way
I hope we can figure out a way
If you say you won't
I would understand
Maybe we can figure out a way

If you decide to meet me there
We could make out, a plan
Maybe we can figure out a way
I hope we can figure out a way
If you say you won't
I would understand
Maybe we can figure out a way
If you say you won't
I would understand
Maybe we can figure out a way
I hope we can figure out a way
