The Auto Body Experience is a local band that performs often-humorous music. Their latest CD was just released last week, and Melissa, Sabrina, and I went to the concert (along with Melissa's sister). It was a fun time, as Auto Body performances always are.
Anyway, one of the songs on the new album is named "Terry Gross", named for the host of the NPR program Fresh Air. Well, it turns out that the song actually got Scott Yoho (the lead singer and an awesome guitarist who writes the music and lyrics and happens to also work in the local computer industry at Coda) an interview on that show today.
I should also note that the saxophone player, Max, is a coworker of mine. We worked together on ImageReady a few years ago, but have moved on to separate projects at this point.
You can buy tracks from their previous CD, A Tribute to Carhenge from the iTunes Music Store. I don't know if the new one will go on iTunes or not, but it can be purchased from CD BABY. The CD doesn't quite capture the energy of a live performance, but on the plus side, I can hear Max's saxophones more clearly.
I think my current favorite track from the new album is "Tom Fixed His Spit Valve Spring" -- I mean, how can you not like a song with the lyric: "Tom became a cross between McGyver and E.T."? Of course, it's also the newest (to me) song, as I hadn't heard it before last week's concert. Other good tracks include "EDAJTC" (Everyone Deserves A Job That's Challenging), "Annie" (a 'love song' about the CPR dummy), "Inside Out", and "A Cave Beneath My Cube". (The above links are 2-minute sections of the songs in pretty highly-compressed form.)
