Get Off My Foot

Get Off My Foot

(Hewitt-Morgan-Sookman)

The time is 1991: Nirvana's "Nevermind" is still several months off, so we still have hair metal and it's ilk to contend with. As young men in the city of angels, the question that naturally occurs to us is: if we cannot profit from this, can we parody it? Or better yet, somehow do both?
The answer comes to us in the form of a cheap CD Mr. Sookman is playing in the car: a magnum opus from a collective by the name of Rhinobucket. Why, how like the mighty AC/DC, we marvel! How uncanny! How artistically intuitive of them! How easy to imitate!
And so we set out to write a big ol' rawck song and hightailed it into Dr. Dave's studio. This became a live staple for us at BOTH our '91 LA shows, so enjoy us as we are rocking you out now, ja! And, no, I don't know what the chorus has to do with the rest of the song. That's the Majesty of Rock, the Mystery of Roll...

Al: Vox, Keybass
Sook: Vox, percussion
Scott: Guitars
Dave: Drums & Bass

Since I'm here and just posted a comment on the previous tune, I thought I'd stop by here. Lucky you!

Anyway, sounds like Diamond Dave era Van Halen to me. Heck, maybe they are looking for another lead....naw. I'm sure they're good with...uh, whoever it is now.

Also, I think Al has inadvertantly come up with the perfect band name. If you look at the paragraph at the top of the main page on this site, you'll see it. Two words: Brain Dross.

Perfect.

One of my Top 3 Osmium Songs (others being Bad Hair Day and Now Its Time to Rock), this song would have fit in perfectly... well, probably nowhere in the 1991 music scene but still a great song nonetheless!

Well, this is not an Osmium song, as John Wall had zero involvement in this track, though he certainly does like it. It's probably his favorite Pop Machine track.

It's confusing, I know. Hard to keep two bands that don't really exist straight.

BTW, I saw somewhere recently that Rhinobucket was still banging it out and had recently released a new CD. That's pretty amazing.

I believe VH is now talking to....David Lee Roth to be their new vocalist. And Eddie's son Wolfgang will be playing bass. No foolin'. I love the music industry....

They better not try using the name "Brain Dross", tho.
