Day off in Denver, Colorado and checked out their rad skate park. We arrived in an icy blizzard just a day ago and now its 70 and sunny. That’s Denver for ya.

Firelight is our transcendental slide guitar mantra concerning the fires that draw people together at the end of each day, and what each person brings to that circle. This single version was lovingly crafted (recorded & mixed) by Franklin & Moselle in the winter of 2013/14. Accompanying video created by Moselle.

lyrics

As sun sets down
Gather around to the firelight
What friend, do you bring?
Story song?
Let it out

War makes blood
As touch does love
What do I?
What friend, do you bring?
Story, song?
Let it out

I bring fears, I bring ill words
Both of these I bring to burn
I bring myself, I bring death
All of these I burn to ash

My flute and your drum
Make a song to the firelight
What friend, do we make?
Joy or pain?
Let it out

A Crushed Out poem

"Get gone, these blues. Chased away with sting and reverb, the crush of tom and bass. Crash cymbal and shatter chords with frenetic strumming driven off the high flip of a lyrical dive. Beat dusk into memory. Pound the dirty floorboard in time, bathed in purple neon and surrounded by freedom and sweat. Dresses flare, legs bent, arms loose and in swing like carnations grown upside down in a California wind. Let it hang and swirl, thick air and sated thirst at each pause. And the clap and laugh, nervous flittering eyes across rooms immersed in youthful desire, and this totem of solitude breaking, cracking, failing as each note chips away at such frail composure; such stoic inhibition. Each sip, each fleeting crackle of connection leaping like arcing synapses from here to there, to undulating curves and welcome. No need in this forest to grow alone. Merge. Sway. Get gone, these blues, and soak in the glee of now. Swim in the stirred up crush and fall into rhythm with the lot. Hair stuck to flushed cheeks, walls down, sagging drapes threatening to let the world into this private synchronicity, it’s the stomp and drive that threatens to detonate, teasing crates of nitroglycerin with careless throttle because yes, tearing the walls down too would let that cold world in. But it would let our love out. And it would infect the night with the bliss of our fever." - Jason Santo (www.jasonsanto.com)

About

There are many ways of expressing love. Ours happens to be a rock&roll band.

Crushed Out is the shine in Little Richard's teeth, the hairspray in The Ronette's beehives, the bubblegum under Jerry Lee Lewis' shoe, the twinkle in Dick Dale's eye. We make rock&roll for raucous beach parties and speeding down country roads. We think the wild ocean and its killer sharks are beautiful. We find inspiration and friendship with the ghosts of rock&roll past. We are best friends and co-conspirators. We are a modern day love story.

Franklin Russell Hoier - guitar & vocals
Moselle Spiller - drums & vocals
