about

the excuses Nashville, Tennessee

the excuses are a great rock band hailing from Nashville, TN. This power trio proudly rings out radio-friendly guitar- slinging raspy-voiced bedheaded dirtbag anthems.
the excuses are Jeff Skorik on Stratocaster and spleen-straining singing; Pat Meusel drops mad-melody on bass guitar all while singing backups barefooted; meanwhile Chris Minnis shoves his backbeat right up their you-know-whats.

Track Name: little christy
Little Christy, little crystal in the city
Never been too far from home until this day

Little Christy, little crystal in the gutter
Out of place you catch the sun so far away

And how’s it smell, the pot that’s coming from the park
Get a hot dog from a vendor’s cart
And you say you’ve never heard the F word
Used so much

Little Christy, feel your heart beat with the city
Every time a stranger’s eyes go down your shirt

Little Christy, little crystal in the gutter
Cigarette butts, and the spittle, and the dirt

And how’s it feel, to tramp the busy streets alone
Call me from the Y on a pay phone
And you say the singers on the subway
Well, they mostly suck

You left your friends and all those routines behind
And all those little things to do
You tell me that was way too comfortable
Much too comfortable
For you

Little Christy (4x)

How’d you know so much…
