Disappearing Ink

From Quiver, a track that comes roaring out of the speakers. It starts with eight measures of Joe Bonadio’s hellacious groove and doesn’t look back till the fade. Inspired production and snapping rhythm guitar from Mike Hoffmann. This track is, when I think about it, another pop/country stab from a period when that was my thing. I still like the concept, especially as it was done by people like Dave Edmonds, Nick Lowe, Marshall Crenshaw and occasionally, when they weren’t doing a couple dozen other things brilliantly, NRBQ. If every song Semi-Twang did was this hooky and fun, things might have turned out differently. But, like my idol’s, NRBQ, I had to mix it up a little. Many of the songs on Quiver are less upbeat and reflect the professional struggles of the time. I like them all, but this one is more innocent and fun. And supercharged.
