about

Lowdown Ways marks a quantum creative leap for DADDY LONG LEGS, the scrappy New York trio known for their stripped-down roots sound and in-your- face intensity that’s garnered them fans in their hometown and overseas, where they’ve toured with such kindred spirits as The Damned, Blackfoot Gypsies, Hurray for the Riff Raff and the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. They’ve been recognized by Rolling Stone, who aptly compared them to “Chicago blues fired at the moon, played by the demented children of the Pretty Things.”

This expansive, new territory that the band covers on Lowdown Ways is thanks to producer (and JD McPherson bassist) Jimmy Sutton, with whom the band recorded the album at Chicago’s Hi-Style Studios, applies his technical know-how to broaden the sound of such instantly memorable tunes as “Pink Lemonade” (co-written by McPherson), “Ding Dong Dang” and “Bad Neighborhood,” which resonate with the down-and-dirty roots that have always been DADDY LONG LEGS’ inspiration. Meanwhile, the band ventures successfully into unfamiliar territory with the pub-rock-style “Winners Circle,” the bittersweet acoustic ballad “Back Door Fool” and the dramatic album-closer “Wrong Side of the River.”

Track Name: Pink Lemonade
Dig deep pay me a dollar and a dime
If you’re lookin’ for a real good time
It’s been a hot minute since you threw me some shade
You ain’t got nothin on pink lemonade

Ooooh ooooh ooooh wah oooh wah ooh wah

Pink lemonade Whiskey and wine
Sugar and spice and everything fine
A cool drink of water ‘fore the sunset fades
That sweet thing known to all as pink lemonade

Help me momma I ain’t from this town
The city sun is draggin’ me down
It’s been a hot minute since you threw me some shade
You ain’t got nothin on pink lemonade
Track Name: Mornin' Noon & Nite
Well I love it in the mornin’
I love it in the evenin’
I love it in the daytime, nighttime
Any old time is the right time
Mornin’, noon & nite

Let’s do it in the high plains
Let’s do it in the boot hills
Let’s do it on the east side, west side
Any old side is the best side
Mornin’, noon & nite

Well you gives me revelations
And you’re a sensation
The hoodoo that you do
Has got me goin’ cuckoo
Mornin’, noon & nite

Let’s do it on Monday
Let’s do it on Tuesday
Let’s do it on Wednesday
Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday
Mornin, noon & nite
Track Name: Glad Rag Ball
We’re goin’ to the glad rag boogie
We’re goin’ to the glad rag ball
Meet me on the corner at midnight
And pick up your glad rag doll

I said we’re goin’ to the glad rag boogie & ball
Gonna boogie all nite and boogie in the hall
All the girls are screamin’ at the glad rag ball

Are you goin’ to the glad rag boogie? Yeah!
Are you goin’ to the glad rag ball? Uh-huh!
Well don’t forget to call the boogie man
And meet him in the bathroom stall
I said were’ goin’ way out to the edge of town
Suited and booted in our glad rag gowns
And don’t you try to give me no hand me down

Is this the glad rag boogie? Yeah!
I mean is this the glad rag ball? Uh-huh
There’s gonna be a whole lotta trouble
Down at the old dance hall
So leave your blades and pistols at the door
Cuz its gonna be a night like never before
All the girls are screamin’ for more more more
