about

It should be stated that whatever was written or arranged here turned out far better than what was originally envisioned, due primarily to the various backing musicians involved.

Case & point, the title track, One of Us Has Got to Go, began life as a simple folk-blues-rock number, with very slick slide guitar laid down by James Conrad & my own 12-string guitar accompanying. Then the metamorphosis gradually took place as the song’s sound design drastically changed with the bass track of Guinevere Q’s, followed by the very compelling & unique drum rhythms laid down by Ben Peterson, then altered slightly again by the styling of the other vocalist, Hayley Goldstein, then AGAIN, given a whole new dimension with the seemingly psychedelic keyboard & organ brought in by Olga Perry. The song ended up being scarcely recognizable to its original design, and made far better for it.

lyrics

One of Us Has Got To Go
words by James Conrad

You tell me lies when I ask where you've been.
I asked for whiskey, you served me gasoline.
And now you and I both know
That one of us has got to go.
Yeah, one of us has got to go.

You steal my money, you broke my bank.
The sweetest thing you gave me was sugar in my gas tank.
Lord I'm tired, I want to be alone,
So one of us has got to go.
Yeah, one of us has got to go.

(Instrumental)

You cheat and betray me time after time.
When you say you love me, you're just reading your lines.
I'm dropping the curtain, I'm ending the show
Cuz one of us has got to go.
Yeah, one of us has got to go.

You done smashed my best guitar.
You put a big dent in my Daddy's brand new car.
You're so God damned wicked! I should have known
And now one of us has got to go.
Yeah, one of us has got to go.

You tell me lies when I ask where you've been.
I asked for whiskey, you served me canned heat.
And now you and I both know
That one of us has got to go.
Yeah, one of us has got to go.
