about

"The Heavy Editors make pure post-punk power pop, exquisitely-crafted and impeccably-played...a type of genuine music that we don't get to hear very often today. This is not manufactured hit-factory pap, but real rock and roll, with intelligent lyrics and sharp arrangements, played by musicians with real chops.

"The five songs on this EP address relationships, our changing times, the dreams of a musician and impending maturity. The tempos vary from near-ballads to solid rockers, with hints of psychedelia and punk around the edges."

--Rudy Panucci, Radio Free Charleston

Track Name: How the West Was Won
Now we are fighting with ourselves
How the West Was Won

Are you going back for someone else?
I heard her talk about success
But I cannot sleep I cannot rest
So I will sit and dream about the West

How the west was won
How the west was won

There are kids that stay out late
They can't escape, what is their fate?
They try to take blood from a stone
Re-direct their lives past orange cones
My parents are freezing right down to their bones

How the west was won
How the west was won

Now we are talking to ourselves
Track Name: You're Breaking Up With You
You're Breaking Up With You

You're breaking up with you
You're breaking everything you started
You're breaking up with you
You're breaking everything that I wanted

You're breaking up with you
You're breaking everything that you started
You're breaking up with you
You're breaking up, you're breaking up, you're breaking up

Breaking up, making up
Letting it waste away
It's getting dim, so hard to see
Take it time, all of me

You're breaking up with you
You're breaking everything you started
You're breaking up with you
You're breaking everything that I wanted

You're breaking up with you
You're breaking everything that you started
You're breaking up with you
You're breaking up, you're breaking up, you're breaking up
Track Name: I'm Buying A Stratocaster
I'm Buying a Stratocaster

I'll take it out on you, I'll take it out on tour
I'll make a million fans, I'll be the new rock star du jour
Because sunburst just isn't enough to get me high
No sunburst just isn't enough to get me off

'Cause my rock star credibility
Won't let me hang out at the bar
And my rock star credibility
Won't let me hang out, I stumble and I scar

I'll take it out on you, I'll take it out on me
I never thought I'd see the bitter end
But sunburst just isn't enough to get me off

'Cause my rock star credibility
Won't let me hang out at the bar
And my rock star credibility
Won't let me hang out, I stumble and I scar
Track Name: Take This Town And Kill It
Take This Town and Kill It

Take this town and kill it
Let me up man, I've had more than enough
I've been the bad guy, I've been the villain
I've been the tough

Take this town and kill it
She left out with all that I own
Tried to fake it and I tried to rip it
Stepped down, lost my commitment

Take this town and kill it
Take this town
Take this town
Take this town
Track Name: Heavy
Heavy

And when you look away
You don't know what to say
It's just another day
It's just another day
