about

The Boo Radley Project Guelph, Ontario

Boo is an eight piece (and sometimes larger depending on who is in town) genre-bending collective that fuses funk, indie and jazz. They've been likened to everyone from Tower of Power and Mr. Bungle to The Cat Empire and Wilco. But really, they're just Boo, a ragtag group of brothers serving up a quirky, fresh approach to music. ... more

Track Name: Funk the Trilogy
You know when the times aren't great
You gotta shake it or break it to make the things go right
You know when the money's low
You gotta listen to the funk and it'll be alright

Come on come on gather round
And shake that damn thing through this town
So simple to do
Just listen to the funk like I told you to
Track Name: Magic Fruit
Someone
Told me
About a place
That you can't see
Behind the wall
Of mystery
Is the thing
That just can't be

Magic Fruit
Such a treat
Magic Fruit
So good to eat
Magic Fruit
Such a treat
Magic Fruit
So good to eat

On an island
In the sea
I couldn't run
I couldn't flee
Just the scent
Had taken me
Is this heaven?
Could it be?

Magic Fruit
Such a treat
Magic Fruit
So good to eat
Magic Fruit
Such a treat
Magic Fruit
So good to eat
Track Name: Dante Hall
Louisiana New Orleans in the quarter of the French
This a crazy tale about a boy or a gentleman my trombone playing friend
Ripped by his parents Dante could never belt it out
His dreams to be a swing-playing man were perpetually in doubt
His mom said "no no boy"
But he said "mom I must insist"
"My life is right ahead oh how could I resist!"

Go Dante Go!

Full of self-regret little Dante finally left
Made his way to Chicago and boy he never looked back
It's hard to believe the boy could ever find his way
Joined the Saltines of Swing, still trombone 'till this day
Track Name: What's Going On? (Fat Kids)
All this speechless while introverts me
I get lost in my mind
And it doesn't really matter if you know me
I just put on my mask and I'm
One, two, three, four
Out of this door and into another world

What's Going On?
What's Going On?
What's Going On?
What's Going On?

If I'm not a here please forgive me
I'm just running for my life
I'm just trying to walk but it won't let me
It's spitting fast and it's
hard, cold, black mold
It's taken it's toll and trapped me in another world

What's Going On?
What's Going On?
What's Going On?
What's Going On?
Track Name: Day One (Terraport)
Floating around in beautiful space
Mind control takes out a race
My mind it does not affect
A free mind is now a defect
TV radio everywhere
Makes me rip out my hair
Tyranny, hatred and oppression
From these things I must save men

To save all of us
A vector is born
Little orbs of life
Oh how they fill my strife
A world so unjust
A planet of lost trust
The garbage must be cleaned
This world I must redeem

The orbs are free
The orbs are free
The orbs are free
The orbs are free
The orbs are free
The orbs are free
The orbs are free
The orbs are free
Track Name: S.I.B.S.
We've come to observe your design
Face to face and eye to eye
Beautiful and complex are these gears that never rust dull
'Cuz with intention these inventions are manifested in the lives of us all

(There) There is a reason for the blindspots in your eyes
(These) These are the answers I've been longing to tell you why
(This) This thought is a figment of your absent little mind
(It's) It's divine intervention, his intelligent design

Turn off your lamps and step out of your coats
Take a look outside at the bugs and birds a float
You claim to tell the truth, and nothing but the truth with your eyes closed your not a visionary no
Well don't expect to win this fight, no one's buying you a drink tonight, 'cuz all your wrongs will be exposed and your story grows old

(There) There is a reason for the blindspots in your eyes
(These) These are the answers I've been longing to tell you why
(This) This thought is a figment of your absent little mind
(It's) It's divine intervention his intelligent design
Track Name: World of Illusion
Caught down deep where the tiger fish roam
And the grass is green and time moves slow
The queen of cards lives adjacent to the sea
In a castle of illusion surrounded by trees
These trees aren't ordinary by any means
An orchard of glass plumbs and smoky tangerines
Climbing these walls vines grow around me
Taking my innocence and prosperity

Colours of noir mark my descent
I no longer know how much time I have spent
The queen moves ahead an approaching disaster
The horse moves in Ls backed by the pastor
In a World of Illusion
In a World of Illusion
In a World of Illusion!
In a World of Illusion!
Track Name: I Wrote This Song by Gene Wilder by Gene Wilder
Here's to 1933
You survived the war and started a family
Then you landed that gig
And like a hostage you were drove away
Confined like a menace

Where are we going?
There's no signs of slowing down
Where is your mind?
And are you still wild?

So amazed you invited us in
We stayed for a day and didn't complain
Or refuse anything we didn't ask for

And I feel like
(Gene Wilder)
(Gene Wilder)
(Gene Wilder)

Gene, I want to see you tonight!
Track Name: Bred to be Loyal
Creatures and crawlies, ticks and tumblewoods
Ticks and tumblers, viewers of the view
Pods of porpoises working over-hours
This isn't what they were intended to do

We are bred to be loyal
To follow guidelines, instructions and sets of rules
And we are bred to be uncertain
Isn't this what we were, what we were intended to do?
