Memphis Scene: Ska Rockers Inspired By Jesus & Sinatra

http://www.gomemphis.com/mca/listen_up/article/0,1426,MCA_509_995567,00.html

Some of the songs they play, like Jellybeans and Apathy, "have nothing to do with God or our love for Christ or anything, but when we play we represent Christ," Wells said. "We try to make it known through some of our lyrics."

Jellybeans and Apathy was "about a day Jared and I had. We went to go see this girl sing. We pulled into the parking lot to get on a bus we were supposed to get on (to go see the show). (A) lady was yelling at us to get out'cause we didn't belong there. So, we went to Target and threw stuffedanimals, like a giant dog, over the aisle. We always do stuff like that. We kick balls down the aisle and try not to get caught. Then we came home and we're like, 'Man, today was really stupid. Let's write a song about it.' "

Jesus is more into <a href="http://www.gluck.net/jesus/">monster trucks</a>.

Explaining the band's name, Wells said, "There's a street over by our church named Tutwiler. We were driving to Taco Bell and I
saw it and I said, 'That would be so funny if we were named Tutwiler.' "

yep. so funny.

I like how they have a song called "Slow Song" that went through two other titles before arriving at that one. I guess with inspiration like Disney's Aladdin and video games you'd eventually decide to get back to the basics. Those guys are like funny when they like throw stuffed animals in like Target and then like ask for forgivness, on like Sunday and stuff.
