•    Samples from Poke You In The Eye   

    Poke You In The Eye Title track written by Jay Lee

    Dollar General Dollar is a song written and sung by our fiddle player, Greg Henkel. Check out the Morricone bridges in this song.

    Rain is our skewed interpretation of the semi-obscure Beatles song (the “b” side of the single “Paperback Writer”). This song is the direct result of our fiddle player’s brother Jim joining the band. You may have seen him play as the guitarist for Beetle, Light Rock Express and The El Orbits.

    London Homesick Blues is just one of those songs we just had to record. It is an overplayed Texas anthem to be sure. Jay Lee sings this as a duet with Pete Gordon (aka The Dazzling Pete Gray of The El Orbits, aka Wet Dawg of Mojo Nixon and the Toadliquers fame, aka good friend and manager of the Continental Club). His piano playing is second to none and makes this song shine (IMHO).

  •    Impromptu free show!   

    Members of the Flying Fish Sailors are playing an impromptu show at Sig’s Lagoon on Wednesday night, Jan 25th. It’s going to be Jim, Greg and Jay from 9:15 to 10:00 pm.

    It’s part of Greg’s birthday celebration going on that evening.
