Description
I once had a pet alligator and it died instantly. One night, June 10, 2008, to be exact, kevlar just started singing this song about my dead pet alligator without my consent. I was in tears trying to play my guitar. The only thing that kept me going was ant-knee's flawless punk-pop leads and the solid support of tre trev and wally reason. I totally lost it when na started playing her mournful violin part. Overcome with grief and anger I just couldn't let it go and had to bring my bandmates to the legal wrestling mat. The fact that the dead pet alligator was mine and he tried to exploit the fact makes for a very compelling legal argument. It has made for some uncomfortable moments but if it means recording my guitar parts separately from here on.... so be it.

Tiy did it!
You took me back to 1976-77 an evening when I was REALLY bored in a hotel room on a business trip to Rochester, NH. This a great song with some great melodies both from the guitar as well as the vocals which complement one and each other very well. Lots of nice passages, it's a killer. Oh, and this may be the first song I have heard about a pet alligator, perhaps the first one ever. Peace!

Call Sherlock Holmes!
I have a sneaking suspicion that the demise of the alligator may have not been due to natural causes. Perhaps there was a plot: The song had already been written, but the perpetrator needed some event in order debut the song and make it more relevant. I'd start dusting for fingerprints. And not just as a hobby, but maybe to find a clue as to the truth behind this tragic tale.

Holy cow - i mean alligator -
this one mean ass rocking potential lawsuit you got going here. The drumming is awesome the bass is maxed out the guitars are thrashing and the vox are boring into my brain. By far some of the most focused madness yet from the joan posse. I'm in awe - forget what I said about classic in the next post - this classtastic.

BTW - you guys snuck a lot of songs in lately after some dry spell or something.
