One of the greatest new songs I’ve heard lately is by a band called the Mullet Marauders. Lead singer, Scott Hoyer is actually the brother of Todd Hoyer, guitarist of my own band formerly known as The Finalists. And as it happens, when the band formerly known as The Finalists meets to record their debut album the weekend of July 8th, it will be Scott who provides the technological support that will make this happen.
Anyway, click here to check out the Mullet Marauders MySpace page. There you’ll be able to hear two tracks off their upcoming album titled “Welcome to the Roadhouse.” The first song is called “The Ballad of Corey Feldman and Corey Haim.” Simply put, it’s brilliant. Never before has anyone been able to capture the spirit that is both Corey Haim and Corey Feldman. Now, forever immortalized in song, hopefully generations of teens to come will learn of their legend.
The second song on the site is “LA Gear Lady.” It’s an equally moving love song written to a woman with a penchant for dirty denim and neon shoe laces. Perhaps highlighted by the lyric, “She drinks Busch Light, it’s her favorite beer/I just want to make her mine this year,” To be honest, I’m not sure which of the two songs I like more. They’re both outstanding. I, for one, look forward to actually owning a copy of this album. As I also look forward to working with the studio wizard known as Hoydogg.
I just received some breaking news, the Coreys, Feldman and Haim, are going to be reuniting to star in a comedy series.
Corey Feldman and Corey Haim are making a comeback! The ’80s teen heartthrobs will star in The Coreys, a comedy series that centers on fictional versions of themselves, similar to Curb Your Enthusiasm. The Coreys will reunite Feldman — who’s living the comfortable suburban life with his wife Suzie and son — with Haim, a bachelor and the total opposite of Feldman! Episodes would follow Haim as he shakes life up for the Feldmans.
This information came straight from here, the celebrity gossip pages of the National Enquirer, so it’s got to be true, right?
Oh, please, oh, please, oh, please, let it be true!
Another update – August 12, 2007
I’d actually created a post featuring the video for “The Ballad of the Coreys.” But lately, this post you’re at now has been getting a lot of traffic so I thought I’d put it up here as well. Click the video itself to be taken to the YouTube page for better quality. But be sure to comment, and tell ’em Mikey sent you.
