Here is a track listing for the new album, with notes about each track:
1. Pageboy - one of our more alliterative offerings, this was the result of having a tune, no lyrics and a dictionary. Kids - stay in school!
2. Photograph - cover of the Ringo Starr song, co written with Geo Harrison
3. New Girlfriend - an old Monday Week fave, done up Tater style and featuring the New Tater on the Block Chris on lead vocal
4. Thingamajig - a little-known western swing tune, gotten from a cassette given to me by a friend of mine nearly 20 years ago. It took until the Google years before I ever found out what it was, or who wrote it (Cindy Walker, by the way)
5. Goodbye Girl - our slightly calypso take of a Squeeze classic. We did a version of this on the Squeeze tribute project from a few years back but this is its first time
6. Merrick Lines - another Monday Week regular that never got recorded before. Check!
7. Help Me Rhonda - Yep. The Beach Boys one. Since this whole album is a kind-of tribute to their Party album, seemed only right we do one of their songs!
8. Gotta Get a Message to You - One of our favorites from the Brothers Gibb, lead vocal by Brother Greg
9. Rocks - don't know what to say about this one, but it's our fault. This was probably one of the first songs that Craig & Gary Walker ever wrote together
10. Smoke on Route 66 - two songs that have probably never been mashed up before, though for the life of me I can't imagine why!
11. Never Call Me Here - an acoustic version of a tune off of our 2000 release Strange But True (from back when we was burnt!), and a staple of our live shows. The official theme song of the Witness Protection Program. But you didn't hear it from me!
12. No Two Shows the Same! - just like it says. This was the result of testing mic levels during the recording setup
13. Titanic - What better way to end the CD than with a rousing distaster tune. This Ledbelly classic has been in the Taters live shows for years, and we're here to tell the tale.
