The Foghorns "Ain't I A Man" - KEXP Song of The Day January 1, 2016

The Foghorns "Ain't I A Man" - KEXP Song of The Day January 1, 2016
Not a bad way to start out the year.  The Foghorns song "Ain't I A Man" is featured as the KEXP Song of the Day on their first podcast of 2016.  

 

The single was released in 2015 on the album "The Sun's Gotta Shine..." 
Bart Cameron was interviewed by the Huffington Post and had this to say about the song:
"I know people are saying it's a folk song, and I'm cool with that, but the reference really is Bo Diddley. He always sang about being a man, or what it was to be a man. Because it was relevant. Because in his time, for people like him, to say you were a man, someone who could earn a living, be sexual, be bold -- that was an act of rebellion. As it would be today." 

"So I'm stuck in the city where geeks are all kings / they got all the morals of Louis the 14 / they don't pay no taxes send their kids overseas / so they don't have to see the poor sleepin' on the street / makes it hard to be a man / but ain't I a man."

"The Sun's Gotta Shine..." is part one of a two part concept album so look for another full length album from the Foghorns in 2016.

"The Sun’s Gotta Shine…" The first new album in four years from The Foghorns

The first new album in four years from The Foghorns.

  • After 60,000 miles touring in five countries, the band STAYED HOME for this record.
  • Our first time not recording live to tape in a decade.
  • Songwriter Bart Cameron had two children while this album was made.
  • The Foghorns were Knick Knack Records first release. Now the label is established.
  • This is part one of a two-part concept.

The Foghorns are: Bart Cameron: vocals, guitars, harmonica; Jason Kopec: drums, pots and pans; Ken Nottingham: bass; Lauren Trew: bass clarinet, vocals; Colin Nelson: choir-leader, percussion; Matthew Ploszaj: choir; Casey Ruff: choir; David Rossman: choir on Ain’t I a Man; Peter Colclasure: piano, accordion.

This CD was recorded by Colin J Nelson at Her Car Studios in Fremont, Seattle, WA.

Personnel on this album:

Bart Cameron: vocals, guitars, harmonica

Jason Kopec: drums, pots and pans

Ken Nottingham: bass

Lauren Trew: bass clarinet, vocals

Colin Nelson: choir-leader, percussion

Matthew Ploszaj: choir

Casey Ruff: choir

David Rossman: choir on Ain’t I a Man

Peter Colclasure: piano, accordion.

About this music:
Alana at the Conor Byrne, JJ at Blue Moon, and Mamma Casserole at Comet Tavern, along with Levi Fuller at Ball of Wax and Greg Vandy from KEXP’s show The Roadhouse all encouraged us and gave us forums for live performances over the four years that it took to develop this sound. We are extremely grateful for their support. And we are extremely grateful that fans have paid money and devoted the energy to head out into the very late night and catch our shows.

 More about this music:

 This is our first experience with track recording in the last decade. We prided ourselves on being a live band and on touring long and hard. The amazing Charles Bork has recorded us using mono quarter inch technology, and we love those records. But this CD, (and the second part of it, which will be released later this year), is a digital recording.

Colin J. Nelson recorded everything. Colin and Bart produced the record. Bart got guidance from Jon Rooney of Virgin of the Birds. Through digital recording, we were able to overdub vocals, and Peter Colclasure flew out from his new home in California to contribute his accordion and piano playing.

 As for long hard touring, there are towns we owe a lot to: Edinburgh, Reykjavik, London, Copenhagen, Cleveland, New York City, San Diego. Touring in the past was fantastic. But the experience of living our lives in Seattle, experiencing the day to day, being there for each other and for family and friends… this music is a product of that. Of living in one place and putting down roots.
