The Escapegoat

Dear Friends,

The Hard Taco song for December is called, "Idiots Who Think They're Happy." Paul McCartney once sang, "Let's all get up and dance to a song that was the shit before your mother was born." He was referring to this song, because it is just that good.

Don't tell my parents, but music recording hasn't exactly been a money-making venture for me. Keeping the Hard Taco website going costs about $5 a month, and sometimes I have to replace broken guitar strings. Fortunately, I replace them with other broken guitar strings, which doesn't cost much.

But the real cost of having a home recording studio is the loss of potential income. As long as we're using the spare bedroom for music, we can't rent out the room to sleepy travelers. The idea of taking on boarders is tempting, but I really don't like the idea of strangers sleeping in my house. Think about it this way. The average person swallows 8 spiders/year during sleep. If I rent out my spare room to travelers, they'll probably swallow some of MY spiders. Spiders that might otherwise have crawled into MY mouth at a later date. I might not make it to my full quota of 8 by New Year's, and that is not acceptable.

I’ve got the fattest hands
Call Guinness
Call Guinness
It’s record time

I’ve got the baddest band
Call Guinness
Call Guinness
It’s record time

I knew a girl when I was back in the war
She had that vintage smell
What the hell was that for?
And you know, back then
Everything went according to plan
And you know, back then
I had the most checkered past
Will the record last
And if no,
I better set it again

I’ve got the bleakest grin
Call Guinness
Call Guinness
It’s record time

I’ve got the weakest chin
Call Guinness
Call Guinness
It’s record time

I knew the girl was hot stuff with an axe
She only turned heads
When she was breaking necks
And you know, back then
I had the most checkered past
Will the record last
I don’t know
I better set it again


Matt Cameron - additional vocals
