Water Drippin' Up The Spout
:: Let It Out::
:: Go Girl, Go ::
Ah gosh, I remember this song from when it used to get played on "Boss Radio" 93 KHJ, and KFWB "Channel 98" and of course KRLA which no doubt had some kind of catchy slogan too, but I can't remember it now. It's a heck of a dumb-ass song anyway, and that's its charm.
It sounds kind of Tex-Mexish, but these guys were from Memphis, and as with all one-hit-wonder bands, there's more to their back story than you might think.
About 4 or 5 years before this record appeared, a bunch of Nashville session cats cashed in on the hot rod craze with a song called "G.T.O.", credited to Ronny and The Daytonas. Since they weren't really a band, they needed some dudes to go out on the road and play G.T.O. and probably Little Deuce Coup and all that other crap for gaggles of clueless teens at county fairs and such. So you guessed it, these Hombres guys got the call. They did this Daytonas act for years until they finally got a record deal on their own on the strength of this original composition. They made 2 or 3 singles and an album (which I'd love to find) before disappearing. Funny thing is they're probably still out there playing G.T.O. on the oldies circuit, and maybe they're sneaking a rendition of Let It Out in occasionally too.
