Cambridge Nights - Single (Remastered)
Cambridge Nights - Single (Remastered) digital only release, out Tuesday, August 5, 2014. Available on iTunes, Amazon, and all download and streaming outlets.
Serious Fun - Doug Osborne on Guitars and Vocals, Stephen Wild on Bass and Vocals, and Liz DeSessa on Drums, tore up the clubs in Boston in the early '80s. The Paradise, The Rat, The Channel, Jumpin' Jack Flash, Bunrattys...all of the clubs from that classic period in Boston Rock.
By saving all proceeds from playing live, Serious Fun saved their money for recording. They enlisted the aid of Andy Mendelson (Andy Pratt, etc.) and recorded seven songs at Baker Street Studios in Watertown, MA. Doug and Andy mixed three songs from the 8-Track 1" multitracks to 2-Track 1/4" - Pasted On Pout, Arrest My Heart, and this one, Cambridge Nights.
Pasted On Pout and Arrest My Heart were released on Varulven Records' Boston Rock and Roll Anthology #4, to great success. This mix of Cambridge Nights has never before been released or heard! Remastered versions of POP and AMH will be released as singles after this, and these three will only be available as download and streaming singles. This will be followed by the release of the full Serious Fun EP, songs finished, newly remixed and mastered.
Cambridge Nights - Words and Music by Douglas Osborne
Davy’s never known
and he doesn’t want to
that he’s never had it bad
like the ladies selling something so sweet
He’s rarely tasted
though more often he’d like to
the good that he’s never had
like the hot chocolate at the Cafe Pamplona
Some of these Cambridge Nights
could flash in his face
could see his disgrace
Even parking cars under downtown lights
might not pull him up from this place
Betty’s never done it
though she says she knows how to
She can drive a fellow mad
with all of her daddy’s presents and her nose job
Davy’s had it all before
he says it’s all because he had to
He says he’s really oh so sad…

DESPERADOS BFDM - Live in Cabrio, Soest - Saturday 19 July - 20,15
On Saturday evening 19 July, Desperados BFDM will perform a long concert in the beautiful location of the Openluchttheater Cabrio in Soest (NL). At the moment the band is busy in studio with the recording of their third album, so this is actually one of the few occasions to see the band live in 2014! The concert will include all the most representative songs of the first two albums, plus several tracks of their new work: at least 4 songs will be played live for the first time!
A summer evening celebrating more than 11 years of activity of Desperados BFDM, dancing at the rhythm of an energetic cocktail of rock, pop and latino music mixed to folk atmospheres and delicate ballads.
Special guest of the evening will be the talented songwriter Susan Jane, beautiful voice from Amsterdam, good friend of the band and collaborating to new tracks included in the Desperados BFDM's new album.
A real feast in music: and the party will be complete only if you will come too!

Misschien het einde van de band?
Het botert niet tussen een paar leden van de band. We hebben met z'n drieën een gesprek gehad maar de kou wil niet uit de lucht. Het was wel een stevig en openhartig gesprek. Helaas was 1 van de bandleden niet aanwezig maar die was via de telefoon wél aanwezig.
Het is alweer een tijd geleden dat we hebben samengespeeld. De laatste keer dat we bij elkaar waren was in 2012. We hopen natuurlijk wel door te kunnen gaan maar of het lukt, dat is de vraag. Voorlopig zijn er geen gesprekken gepland. We hopen wel weer een keer bij elkaar te komen.
