about

"Kid Brother is a ramshackle country-rock band from right here in town. Their debut, the Family Band EP, is a lo-fi excursion of ramblin' goodtimes, recorded at various locations including McMinnville. Its best track, "Rob This Town," is a shitkicking, boozy bit of Southern rock with two guitar solos at once (a very fine thing in my book)." - The Portland Mercury

Track Name: Rob This Town
Living in the city gotta pay just the breathe
And you can't ever leave until your number is up
Once I had a job working for the man
But now I'm collecting cans to put a meal in my hands

Let's rob this town together
Stick it to the fat cats on the hill
Let these ties never sever
Not until we empty this last till

Living on Ranch Beans and Spam
Anything in a tin, even pumpkins and pears
Steady but slow down this old dirt road
To the barley sugar columns where them greenbacks are stowed

Let's rob this town together
Stick it to 'em right where it hits home
We're all in this together
But, good Lord, don't we die alone?
Let's rob this town together
Read a letter and what now did it say?
Why do we live for tomorrow
When we could be living for today?
Track Name: Call Me Back
Call me back, call me back
To your home
What I crave is your embrace
I'm so alone

I can't tell if it's been days or weeks
I see your face when I sleep
I miss your touch but not near as much
Those days are gone, I will move on

Don't call me back, don't call me back
At my home, you're on your own

(Don't call me back to your home)

And if you think you got me right where you need me honey
Then you got it all wrong
Cause I don't need any of your love or kisses or money
I'll be fine on my own
Track Name: The Family Band
The Family Band comes back again in the most colourful way
Picked it right up where they left it right off and everything was ok
The Family Band
The Family Band
Reunited
Playing in a family band

I went today to a party
The crowd just wasn't my scene
I walked alone under the streetlamp glow
Then my family came to visit me

I went last night to a disco
Lord, I danced away that night
I woke next to a pretty little you
And my crazy heart felt pacified

I went this morn with Kid Brother
To lay some flowers on her grave
Oh, one life ends, the other just beginning
And the Family Band with the refrain

The Family Band comes back again in the most colourful way
Picked it right up where they left it right off and everything was ok
The Family Band
The Family Band
Reunited
Playing in a family band
Undivided
Playing in a family band once again
Track Name: Sun and the Sky
The sun, the sky, is passin' me by
on the road to the place where I can be high
I think the world's been hangin' me dry
cuz the sun and the sky keep passin' me by yeah yeah NOW

I want you, babe, to come with me
on the road to a place where we can be free
Oh, one day, one day, we will see
that where we are's always where we need to be
yeah yeah NOW

Refrain

I need to break away
from the hollow, narrow-minded ways
Oh I need to get away
but the road to that place isn't paved
yeah yeah NOW

Refrain
