about

REAL SOUND is our studio debut and it sure is exciting. Working locally with Wally Cleaver's Recording Studio, we crammed all the raw energy of our live shows into five explosive tracks. There's plenty of shouting, huge drums, and horns on fire. All the tracks are original and hard core, no fluff around the edges. We hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we did making it. Be sure to check out the trading cards that come with the physical CD, a rare treat from all of us at ELBY BRASS.

Track Name: King's Got His Crown Back
I've been down for so long, forgot how to crawl
I know this ain't my worst, but when was worse, I can't recall
went out on a limb over the long haul
ain't no up or down when it's a straight-up free fall
when you hit rock bottom, man, it's easy to stand tall
hey, 'cause it's alright, alright
king's got his crown back

ain't no use complaining, ain't no use to fight
only one of us is leaving here upright tonight
man, I'm on a mission, so get out of my way
I pass over pawns like you every single day
you can bring you baddest, but it ain't bad enough
hey, 'cause it's alright, alright
king's got his crown back
Track Name: KFC
I was going to a party
it was the middle of the night
my people said come over
because this party's out of sight
coming 'round the corner
that's when I heard the band
my booty started shaking
and then that shit got out of hand

it was wall to wall
with party people in the place to be
I quickly looked around and very soon I found
the only real male figure was me
there was a big brass band
breaking beats that make you drop so low
and here's a little secret I'll share
throw your hands in the air
'cause guess what?
you're at that show!

before the night was over
the bass began to boom
the floor, it started cracking
from all the dancing in the room
I grabbed a couple ladies
and we took it to the streets
the house began to crumble
as we danced off to the beats

it was wall to wall
with party people in the place to be
I quickly looked around and very soon I found
the only real male figure was me
there was a big brass band
breaking beats that make your booty drop slow
and here's a little secret I'll share
throw your hands in the air
'cause guess what?
you're at that show!

I was going to a party (what time is it?)
it was the middle of the night (let's crash that shit)
my people said come over (we need ten beers)
because this party's out of sight (I mean right here)
coming 'round the corner (real sound)
that's when I heard the band (I said, real sound)
my booty started shaking (keep fucking that chicken)
and then that shit got out of hand (sorry 'bout that)

Fredericksburg!
Track Name: We're Broke
got fired today
car towed away
spare change is it
just pocket lint
ain't got no phone
no dial tone
bill's due next week
man, don't text me!
water got cut off
I just hack and cough
meals in the trash
my cigarettes are ash
no pilot light
no heat tonight
so don't come around
I'm out of town
you know that broke down sound

we're broke
we ain't got no money
we're broke
we got bills to pay
we're broke
and with no cash on the way
brother, things ain't fine
but I'm inclined
to get this off my mind

broke as a joke!
