Stranded in a place unknown you left me here without a hope And between the dust and desert sky I’m looking for some kind of sign You wanted me but all along like most things I got it wrong Making sense of everything won’t help to change your mind In last scenes nothing’s ever wrong But somehow you turn it all upon A rusted hope that never ever shonefor me Never ever shone for me – or you I stare into the lonely night, tell myself that I’m alright And take a joke, fake a smile, try to save it for a while Maybe I could understand if you gave me half a chance Just to figure out that you and I had never crossed your mind Stranded in a place unknown you left me here without a hope Making sense of everything won’t help to change your mind In last scenes nothing’s ever wrong But somehow you turn it all upon A rusted hope that never ever shone for me Never ever shone for me – or you Never ever shone for me Never ever shone for

You tell me why, then close the door The well-worn lines, I’ve heard before Heard them all before All your disdain, not worth a smile My big mistake, measured in miles Measured up in miles And if you think of better days With all the plans we never made There’s still some things we need to say Another day, left far behind Another failure, plays on my mind Messing with my mind That’s just fine So thanks for nothing again Thanks for nothing again

about

The Outryders are stuck in the period of late 80s and early 90s melodic guitar based pop - and happily so. They hold little regard for most of the music that came after this time. The Outryders’ Joe Algeri (Jangle Band, The JAC, Britannicas, Summer Suns) and Paul Colombini (Roadstar, Fuzzswirl, Cherrytones) play a brand of pop that is influenced by Aussie guitar bands (the Sunnyboys, Huxton Creepers et al) blended with British invasion sensibilities.

Joe has steadfastly stuck to the belief that a good pop song should be like a lustful rampage – energetic, uncomplicated and all over in a few minutes. Given this, it is hardly surprising that the Oytryders’ second single does not stray too far from its predecessor; guitars and melody delivered without pretention.

Bassist, Herb Eimerman (USA), who played on the first single, joins the ride again for the opening track, “Last Scenes” together with drummer, Stefan Johansson (Sweden). As a rhythm section they are notoriously part of Egomaniac Music’s very own ‘Wrecking Crew’.

The second track, “Thanks for Nothing”, has a subtle sixties influence and includes backing vocals from special guest, Negin Shahsavar (Sweden), who adds some sweetness to the otherwise sombre slice of jangle.

Musical trends? Ignorance is bliss.

______________________________________________

Con The Outryders y “Thanks for nothing” (2016) se pone de manifiesto, una vez más, cómo una buena canción puede surgir de la sencillez por medio de motivos hilvanados con un gusto complaciente, añadiendo la luminosidad y la amplitud sonora de las docerolas.
