about

The Buckets (EP) is the first album from the newly reformed Seattle "grange" rock band. Catchy pop hooks and muscular instrumentation makes this record an exhilerating foray into a fractured American landscape populated by strip mall-cruising gang bangers, homeless hustlers, surly rednecks and jilted lovers--characters as brash and vital as the music you'll find on The Buckets' new four song EP.

Track Name: 1990
I walk down to the telephone and I call you up
I wait all day just to hear your voice
I listen to you on the message machine
Even that's alright
I'm thinking of you every minute of the day
And even more at night

And I'll do that line this summertime
'Cause I want to
I'll do that line anytime
If you want me to
I'll do that line this summertime
Because I love you
I'll do that line anytime for you

I take you to a movie, I take you to a bar, it's on me
2 am drive through Capitol Hill to the QFC
If I could hold your hand I would
Or I could say goodnight
I'll even hand out on your couch
Until a quarter to five

And I'll do that line this summertime
'Cause I want to
I'll do that line anytime
If you want me to
And I'll do that line this summertime
Because I love you
I'll do that line anytime for you

When I hear that song on the radio
You know I'm thinking of you
When I see those lovers really go
You know I'm thinking of you
When I was the car on a sunny day
You know I'm thinking of you

Yeah I always think of you
Yeah I always think of you

(solo)

When I hear that song on the radio
You know I'm thinking of you
When I see those lovers really go
You know I'm thinking of you
When I was the car on a sunny day
You know I'm thinking of you

Yeah I always think of you
Yeah I always think of you
Yeah I always think of you
Track Name: 6 of 1/2
Six of one half
Write a song
Listen to the radio
Six of one half
Don't know why you feel so low
Counting the reasons
Must be a dozen or so

Six of one half
Modulate to the relative minor
The chorus elusive
Will you ever find her?
Six of one half
A dozen the other

Pardon the insult pal
But I'm not your brother

Six of one half
Strange these days
And I got Hank Williams playing
Inside my head

Six of one half
Too tired to dream
I think Hank (I think Hank) knows what I mean
I think Hank (I think Hank) knows what I mean
I think Hank (I think Hank) knows what I mean
Track Name: Keep On Shining
She might leave me in the morning
I don't know
Did she just stop loving me
Or was it long ago?

Come on take you medication
It won't be so bad
And we'll cross this fractured
Our own private iliad

When I lay myself to sleep at night
I won't ask you for a thing
When I wake up to those flashing lights

We'll just keep on shining
Like those feral homeboys at the mall
Keep on shining
Like the sunlight slanting in the hall

Eating crow is easy
When you know the score
Said you are so sleazy
Did you fuck me on the floor

When she calls your name and cries out loud
Do you feel like a new man?
Then you sleep on sheets soaked with sweat

You'll just keep on shining
Like a redneck in a pick-up truck
Keep on shining
Like the antlers on a 6-point buck
Keep on shining
Like a jet plane in a clear blue sky
Keep on shining, keep on shining, keep on

When I lay myself to sleep at night
I won't ask you for a thing
When I wake up to those flashing lights

We'll just keep on shining
Like that groovy riff in Free For All
Keep on shining
Like that last gold leaf before it falls
Keep on shining, keep on shining, keep on
