My favorite band is releasing a new CD today called Bulletproof. Their name is Reckless Kelly and I urge all of you to give them a listen. You can hear snippets of the new songs via the link to Amazon. I've only heard two of the songs in their entirety, and I like them both, but my favorite takes a hard look at the current war in Iraq. The song is titled American Blood and here are the opening lines as best as I can remember them. There may be a word or two off.
Johnny can't drink 'cause johnny ain't twenty-one, but he's eighteen and pretty handy with a gun. They shipped him off to a foreign land, gave him a new pair of boots and thirteen grand and he came back home with American blood on his hands.
If you'd like to hear a sample of their music check out my MySpace page which has a song from the new CD titled Ragged as the Road. And be sure to friend my while you are there.
And now a couple of sentences I wrote, or at least edited this week. From my novel Plundered Booty ...
Leaning against the right front fender of my truck, he smiled as if nothing had changed. When I didn't return the gesture, the grin slid off his face like eggs from a greasy plate.
Be sure and and check out the gals over at Women of Mystery who originated to Two Line Tuesday idea.
So have you ever heard of Reckless Kelly? Got any other music recommendations? Or if nothing else drop a line and tell me who your favorite singers and bands are.
