Gentleman Jones

There was a band called 'Gentleman Jones'
They tried to sound like the Rolling Stones,
and they were pretty good
(until you heard them start to play)

I thoroughly enjoyed my years as lead warbler in Gentleman Jones.  I've been having loads of fun deciding which songs to include in the special edition CD for the Summer Fur-Face promotion.  Mind you, some of the choices are easy, like the one below. 

This was always one of my personal favorites.  Sometimes, the lyrics just come to you. 





Aside from the music for the two Fur-Face trailers, I haven't written any songs or music since I moved to the US, I decided I should focus on the fiction side of writing.  I miss it sometimes, but I think I made the right decision.

!! I love this song, hahaha. Great humor. And actually, very catchy, so you sort of want to sing along except you're laughing. The video is great fun too--we've all seen your brand of humor on the blog; it's fun to see it in other venues too.

I have to track down a whole CD somewhere. The music and humorous tone are reminding me a bit of the band my daughter's boyfriend is in (well, some of their songs at least)--when they first record songs, they do the music only, with whatever lyrics come to mind, like old socks. But at one of their last shows, my daughter said they did unfinished new song with the placeholder lyrics, and it was good because it was so crazy.

Have to say, I like the style of music :)

I'm glad you liked it :)

Sadly, there are no GENTLEMAN JONES CDs out in the wild anymore. We used to be on Peoplesound.com and Vitaminic.com, but they both went under (or changed, or something).

We actually did quite well on Vitaminic. One of our other songs, Send for Mr. Bond was the #1 download on their 'Rock' chart for a while (Gentleman Jones made it to #2 at the same time).
