BandRockAlternative

Tasha’s Laughter is a three-piece alternative rock band from Minneapolis who isn't afraid to turn their amps up to 11. With a wide range of influences from classic rock to postmodern electronica, they play a unique brand of music that reaches from the past while making a grab for the future.

Biography

Whether it was the luck of the Irish, the alignment of the moons and stars, or good ol' Greek fate, destiny lent its hand and the members of Tasha's Laughter were quick to take it. They weren't looking for each other; in fact, none of them were really looking for a new band at all until they played together in a friend's basement on a whim.

From that point on they have written and recorded a host of catchy songs, and they have performed at numerous venues including 7th Street Entry, The Fine Line Music Cafe, The Garage, Bryant-Lake Bowl, Two Stooges, Busters, The Uptown Bar and Cafe, Enigma, Station 4, Star Central, Dibbo's, and Area 52. Their live show is tight and their popularity is growing daily.

Bent

Pills for breakfast
A glass of water maybe
Is recommened
Recommended
Slow down, honey
You've got to keep that figure
Got to make it look just right

Yeah, we're watching this girl with pride
And we're watching this girl hitch a ride
And we're watching this girl deep inside
All this dough we've made
I hope she doesn't kill herself

Now, I'm not wicked
An entrepreneurial spirit
Has kept me searching
It keeps me searching
An opportunity came when she bent over
Still I wonder
How I wonder why she cried

See, we're watching this girl with pride
And we're watching this girl hitch a ride
And we're watching this girl deep inside
All this dough we've made
I sure hope she don't kill herself

All the men she's taken one by one have hardly left a dent
Every move she's learned is one step closer to my retirement
Still, the abuse was too much
Now she lives alone and slightly bent
Ya know, I'm sorry folks but what could I have said?
