Hey, Mom! Talking to My Mother #46 - The Cantaloupes at Satellite Records 1508.19

Hey, Mom! Talking to My Mother #46 - The Cantaloupes at Satellite Records 1508.19

Hi Mom, Ivan's band played a gig last night, and I would like to show you the pictures and two short videos.

Yeah, I don't like the band name much either. But it's indicative of their aesthetic. They don't care about band names. They care about the music.

At one point, Will the lead guitarist and singer commented the this song is either called "The Devil's Advocate" or the "The Devil's Attorney." He asked Ivan which it should be. Ivan said he did not care. Ivan cares about the music. I asked Ivan about some of the lyrics for the song months ago, he did not know the answer. He didn't know the lyrics.

Their sound is a blend of many influences from country and western (though not the schlocky or poppy stuff), old crooner tunes from the 1950s, surf punk, and rock and roll. It's a sophisticated melange, especially for musicians of their young age.

They are very, VERY good.

This is from their gig yesterday at Satellite Records on Westnedge.

Ditto. Don't know the name of this song.

They played this one at Satellite, too. I did not see the Papa Pete's show, but here's a video from it.


Have someone give you a kiss, and tell you that I love you.
Talk to you tomorrow, Mom.
