With a name like Gasoline Lollipops you know there’s going to be a degree of nostalgia and bittersweetness with this band. And with an album title like All the Misery Money Can Buy you expect a degree of suffering to be evidenced, but don’t miss the gentleness and hope that characterizes all the best Americana songs, in this collection. “Flesh and Bone” chronicles the awakenings that come after hard life lessons. Listen and see.
We wrote “Flesh and Bone” on our last day in the studio and recorded it live that afternoon. I wrote the lyrics for my best friend, who I’ve known since early childhood. We’ve been through the hell of alcoholism and addiction together more than a few times. His last time out ended in a car wreck that scarred him for life. While he has been sober since then, during the time I wrote this song he was struggling with a bout of depression and regret. The song is meant to be an elixir of mercy and love for us both as we navigate the wreckage of our past. – Clay Rose
