Finally mixed and mastered, here’s a track from our upcoming CD, Skanking Foolz Unite:
Eric says of the song:
This song was inspired by a trip to the gold country when I visited my first ghost town, Bodie, California. In this abandoned town, the boom and bust that was the Wild West was staring me in the face. As soon as I heard the story about the miners forming a 100 mule train to get their silver and gold to San Francisco disappearing, I conjured up this song about the betrayal of the brave men of Bodie by the bad men of Bodie. Ben and Matthew added their bits, and a song was born for The Uptones, which we play in our set.
