"Terrified" full-length CD available on Citrus to Citrus


Feeling a bit camera shy


Trevor Childs' record "Terrified" is socially relevant, definitely retro, definitely a pop record, and a highly entertaining listen. His love of the Zombies, Beach Boys, Syd Barrett, and other late 60's pop-eroos shines thru, but is also partnered with some good old fashioned Berkeley liberalism and an overall sense of a guy looking at society saying "what the fuck is going on here?". The album starts with the title track Terrified, which observes that "anybody who says they got god on their side, makes me terrified" amidst a host of clever lyric twists about our fear-oriented society, and then leads into a Neil Young meets Beach Boys track called Don't Get Old, both cute and melancholy at the same time. The record follows with a hilarious song about a guy with a Death Wish, a totally nihilistic Johnny Cash sort of tune, and the record only gets better and better from there. The record seems to be written from the point of view a redneck who moved to the coast and is utterly confused about what to think anymore. Someone who just wanted to lay back, drive a classic car, burn alot of gas, drink beer, and be in love, but who realized the world is lot more complicated.
