ROCK: Classic Rock, BLUES: Rockin'' Blues
Tom was never the same after the alien abduction. The small gray beings with the dark eyes had stirred something deep inside his soul with their mental prodding and had brought to the surface a flood of ideas and sounds that would manifest themselves only in his dreams. "There ain''t nothing better, than the smell of brand new leather..."
These lyrics woke Tom at three A.M. He wrote them down and NEW SHOES was born. Over the next six months, ten songs were written. The title song ''New Shoes'' combined basic blues changes with a twist and ''tongue in cheek'' lyrics. ''Sexy Moves'' wrote itself in less than two hours forging Latin rhythms and his love for the PT Cruiser. He found it very disconcerting that his nocturnal aberrations brought his feelings and thoughts sonically forward. The small gray men had only stimulated the sleeping music in Tom''s mind. After hours of tossing, turning, and hearing the same old thing, ''Monotonous'' was created on the back of an envelope and recorded the next day. Tom then wrote ''Wake up Dead'' drawing on his spirituality to warn "We must give and seek forgiveness, before we wake up dead".
The sequel, of course, was ''Universal Dream'', offering a glimpse of Kolob. Not all of the songs were deep and meaningful. The comic ''He''s my Clone'' expresses just how moronic science can be! And ''Chain Reaction'' is a reminder of just how wonderful love is. Its sequel ''Can we Make up'', yet another reminder how painful lost love can be. After years of exposure to fellow musician''s depression, he wrote ''The Question Is''. Johnnie Davisons'' stirring and emotional vocals on this song gives great insight to the pain of depression. The last offering on the CD, ''Such a Fool'' is written for the girl everyone knows that just can''t seem to get it right. The musicians on this CD, Johnnie Davison on guitar, Mark Honts on drums and Wes Plunk on keyboards have brought to fruition, my dream and I am forever grateful. Their talent speaks for itself. No, there was no alien abduction, but if it caught your attention, thanks for reading and listening.
