Lately it seems Freddy Foshay can’t keep his big fat mouth shut. You might have noticed him accosting his bandmates or kavetching about the latest online trend, but rest assured Freddy is no slouch! He’s got plans for world domination hiding under that spiked hair and devil shades. “I’m moving at the speed of business my friend, and The Foshays are my ride to the top!” Sure he might get dinged for being callous turd burglar from time to time, but as Freddy puts it “The squeaky wheel gets the grease and I’m the greasiest guy I know!” So try to be understanding when this greasy visionary is on the offensive, “It’s not my fault my lips are from the future, half the time I don’t even know what I’m saying!” Well, we’re listening Freddy, we’re listening…. zzzzzzzzzzz…..
Is Twitter making you bitter? Snap Chat biting you back? Facebook not worth a look? YouTube full of gooby-goob? If you’re feeling this way, Freddy Foshay says “You’re not trying hard enough! Get on that phone and check your stats, likes, news feeds, and post something NOW! Take a selfie while sitting in your car, ‘Looking Good!’ Find a cat ‘Oh my god, sooooooo cute!!!’ Your lunch is a good topic ‘That looks tasty, I’m jealous!’ Are you feeling political? ‘That elected official makes me sick!” See, without YOU, social media is just So-So media, and even though we’ve all seen it, and done it before, it’s worth a second look. The rhythms of life, thoughts, and experiences at our fingertips trapped behind glass forever.
Yes it’s true, The Foshays are gay for Slade! They are also gay for The Equals, Cheap Trick, Sweet, The Rubettes, Tommy James, The Cars, The Kinks, The Monkees, Steppenwolf, The Runaways, The Music Machine, ELO, Led Zeppelin, and The Beatles. They have also been known to have trysts with many random finds at the local record shops like Cheapo, Roadrunner, Flashlight, Mill City, and Barely Brothers.
Freddy is right. Nobody likes being popular. Popularity is sick drug sold to us through social media channels like the one you are accessing now to view a portion of this post. We all bang these channels like our caffeinated drinks or chewing gum or littering, wut ever gets you off, wutever! The point being the most of the most popular deal with this affliction most acutely. Could you imagine how hard it is to think about yourself all the time? We cannnnnnnnnnnnn t.
Take a deep breath Franky! Despite some delays, The Foshays first album “Not So Now” is well on the way to being finished. A tweak here, a fader mover there, and then export, export, export! I guess none of that helps this predicament you’re in now. May I suggest a lock for the studio door? Or maybe a nice band sized kennel?
Have you had the kind of week where expectations were high but resources were low? A lot of Uhhhh-pinions but no Uhhhh-deas? Not willing to accept the same old same old? Harry and Franky have the words to soothe yer soul. “But Hey! Not Today!” Use these words in good spirits to cast away the bad one and get something done today!
With all the recent social and political upheavals lately, The Foshays have the perfect response for all the crusty old fogeys out there in world trying to stop change. “Not So Now!” Emphasize “Not” it sounds like its “not happening now.” Emphasize “So” it sounds like it’s not contemporary. Emphasize the “Now” it sounds like “Not So” is the mode of apparatus. All of which applies. Take time to consider which “Not So Now” you are feeling when watching the news, checking your feeds, or listening to your friend complain. The Foshays want to wish you all a happy International Woman’s Day!
The Foshays really really “Like” you. Why? Because! That’s why! Yer totally awesome in every way. That thing you did was so cool and stuff! And yer so smart cuz you like The Foshays too! So don’t ever change baybee. We “ Like” ya the way you are!
The Foshays have a new promo on YouTube. Featuring panels from their online web series and a raw version of the song Rolling Eyes sans the vocals. It’s a fun quick romp through the comics that have been posted on their Facebook and Twitter accounts. Check it out!
Yeah Franky be careful, after all Freddy has very delicate tone deaf ears!
