Get Off My Foot (Live)

Get Off My Foot (Live)

(Hewitt-Morgan-Sookman)

Continuing our theme, here's a version of GOMF recorded live at the late, lamented Bogart's in Long Beach back in '91. Mike was kind enough to draft in a drummer buddy of his to supply the propulsion, and we got so excited performing this piece that I blew my voice out during the soundcheck. Good times! There's video of this somewhere (edited by Syracuse bud and all-around cool guy Tommy G); I'll post it if'n I find it...

Al: Vox
Sook: Vox, percussion
Scott: Guitars
Mike: Keys
Manny Moore: Drums

I forgot to ask: what exactly is this song about?

It's about 3 1/2 minutes long.

Cmon, you can do better than that! Certainly you can make up something...

Al, I feel so bad for you during this song. You sound like you are screaming in pain! But still very good... I want to see the video!

I liked the concision of my last response, but OK. The phrase "Get Off My Foot" was originally the first and only lyrics to the song...I wanted to keep it that way, but was wisely outvoted. In any event, then other lyrics posit a classic heavy rock "truckin' down the highway lookin' for (presumably underage) red hot mamas" scenario. In other words, the classic Pop Machine "immerse yourself in cliche to parody/transcend/celebrate it." Or something like that.

One other observation: I like how they finally turned on Sook's microphone midway through the song; either that or he actually started singing loud enough!

Where in the set list did this song actually fall? Was it the encore?
