Biography

Toy Gun Cowboy hails from Long Beach Calif. with music that provides a new direction and a sonic template for the brave new post major label world.

TGC cranks out catchy music with a trashy sub-standard quality that is well suited to the new disposable age. The listeners, who are left feeling cheap and dirty find themselves returning again and again.

Lyrics

Lo-Fi

Written By: Matt Erickson

She’s a wannabe college lipstick dyke, on a west coast wannabe chopper bike

Hanging around like a chop shop flop, with mechanic’s pants crack and a muffin top

I’m swinging Lo-Fi
Is that all you’ve got for me
Just bringing Lo-Fi
Just that low fidelity

I have a little trouble keeping out of trouble
I have a little trouble keeping on the level

I’m rolling lo fi blonde on blonde with an easy broadcast, looking for a hook-up with the trashy trash

She got the motor mouth cranking before the brain is engaged, it’s cat eat kitty cat for front and center stage

Why am I messing around with the cow when I’m getting that milk for free

I’m swinging Lo-Fi
Is that all you’ve got for me
Just bringing Lo-Fi
Just that low fidelity

I have a little trouble keeping out of trouble (that’s right)
I have a little trouble keeping on the level

Why am I messing around with the cow when I’m getting that milk for free

She dons a low rise cut above the hottie hot, and it don’t take no money to get the money shot

It’s a soft tail ride with a clean clean skate, it’s a diggitydog dinner I’m licking the diggitydog plate

Why am I messing around with the cow when I’m getting that milk for free

I’m swinging Lo Fi
(she says)
Is that all you’ve got for me
Just bringing Lo Fi
Just that low fidelity

I have a little trouble keeping out of trouble
I have a little trouble keeping on the level

Throwin' Down

Written By: Matt Erickson

Nobody knows what that woman is throwin' down

My mother she can talk all she wants, but she don't know

My brothers they can talk all they want but, they don't know

They say one day the woman will make you look like a clown

But nobody knows what that woman is throwin' down

The ladies at church they can give me that sideways look

The man up front can read from his preachin' book

But when the congregation leaves and there ain't a soul around

But nobody knows what that woman is throwin' down

I know she's going to dig my heart out with a shovel when she leaves

I know about her reputation and something about disease

I know I'll be pulling my hair out and pounding my head on the ground

But nobody knows what that woman is throwin' down

Town folk walking by shaking their ignorant heads

Everybody gossips on the telephone till they all drop dead

I can hear them whispering through this crackpot town

But nobody knows what that woman is throwin' down

This Is You're Captain Speaking
