We begged Jay to do a "short rocker" (as opposed to a 7-minute epic) and this was the result. A bit of a style departure for us...some New Wave, some Punk.

Rock on! Enjoy the Honorary Permanent Guest (let us know if you guess who he is from the lyrics).

What a fun,brash rocker! Love the live feel of this one! I hear Matt's influence in this one a lot.

Matt's like the George of the group smiley

As usual the sonics are great.

I hear a different influence than the fabs in here though...

Some Talking Heads/David Byrne phrasings... with some Styx and ELO and Aerosmith and the Ramones thrown in there... but mostly all Longlines!

Long live the Longlines!
Bravo!

It's great to see this one up. A very different Longlines song, but they usually are when Jayman gives us a cool bassline to build on while breaking away from the usual (keyboards). I had a blast playing these guitars. Baboon continues to amaze me. Jayman... let's do another short rocker soon!

Really gruvin, guys, this is GREAT! Take off some of the reverb and it's right out of the 70s punk wave. (Magazine rhythm and production, nice angular "Spizz Energy" melody and delivery on that lead vox (Bab?) which you Just nailed dead-on. I wonder if I didn't know any of you from your music, how I might imagine you running around P.O.'ed, throwing bricks through high-end retail stores!

Sensational and swingin'. I especially dig the vocal harmony. This is full of creative, bold, devil may care stuff. All those little 'screw you' touches really gives it an outlaw element that makes me think I wouldn't want to go on after this band. ...And those lyrics! Good grief, what's up with that? Totally great song dudes. I feel like the long line just got shorter and I can see the carnival ride right ahead. Fun, fun, fun.

Though I saw this posted earlier I waited until I could get home and into my Longlines costume and light a candle and eat some candy and check this out. Glad I waited. You guys should see me playing air guitar in my Longlines costume!

The guitar power with the drums and bass is the real deal. Babs awesome harmony interval takes this out of the park!

The huts make me wanna go and play a game of touch football!

Wow, way over my head, but certainly puts a new spin on the tune for me. Next time I need you to publish me a syllabus or atleast tip me to where I can cop a Cliff Notes.

There is a rich man in unknown tomb in France and it bears the name of Jim Morrison.......This is the end, my beautiful friends, the end.... And ironically, didn't Mojo risen do a song about the tomb of the unknown soldier?

I don't quite get the tomb of the unknown soldier thing, but for some reason, after hearing this song, deep in my rubber soul I'm feeling like Paul is dead.

If I had listened to this track on Virgin Radio (the one and only Rock'n roll FM here in North Africa..oops..Italy) now I'd be running to the record store.
A true kick in the bottom, in the pleasant way smiley
Great groovy rythm section, raw, in-your-face guitar and a masterful vocal performance from Babs. Since Ramones disappeared from the scenes, I hadn't heard anything this good, in the genre. This RAWKZ!!!!
Pliiiiz, more short rockers, mates.

So I came online to check out what I might have missed from the Longlines. Whoa, did I miss a doozy! Great song. So very different from the rest, and yet it's still Longlines. Very cool.
