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

Magic Fruit 03:06
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

Dante Hall 03:14
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

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?

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

S.I.B.S. 06:10
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

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!

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!

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?

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
