Common At Noon




* Available only the 'Drugs, Trucks & Jesus' bonus disc on the "Faux Pas" album *

A cover from Boston's finest in my humble opinion.

This is my third recording of a John Felice / Real Kids song. I previously recorded tracks with my bands, Jack & the Beanstalk and the Stonemasons for the Real Kids tribute album, "I Wanna Be A Real Kid" (1997).

Whilst this version of Common At Noon has a nod to the wonderful arrangement by Kevin Junior from the Rosehips, I resisted the temptation to do a polished studio production. I wanted it to be faithful to the rawness of the original but with an edgier Australian guitar sound; the feel of a band that could fall apart any second.



released April 10, 2012

Written by John Felice and originally released as the B-side to "All Kindsa Girls" in 1977 - Sponge Records (France) # SPSP 10, the first ever Real Kids release. Sponge was a French label headed by Philippe Garnier (later journalist / novelist in California).

This version features all instruments and voices, recording and mixing by Joe Algeri.

Thanks to James Skelton for deciphering the lyrics.
