Re: Silence blaring for (A 9/11 Every Day reviews)

Hey, kids. Smalltown here. Long-time listener, first time caller. Mostly these are speed reviews. And goddammit I’m going to try to be honest. THIS IS A LOT OF SONGS, and a lot of good ones at that. ADD — so, you should know I’ve always been a big fan of your “Systematic Panic.” This is really good....

Re: Scooby Snacks for (Another Mystery Solved reviews)

Well, shucks. Douche Puppy is me and Rob (Hip Cola) plus our friend Dane (who's in Ill Cricket Crew over the years). This was a fun song to make, but yea — completely stuck in the 90s and not something I'd really ever sit down to groove to. We were completely on board with all the "genre bias/not my...

Nah fuck these guys. They've never contributed a thing to the community - they just cropdust us their mediocre whiteguycore bullshit and push their facebook followers to spam votes. These guys are missing the point of songfight entirely.
Fantastic — well put.

Re: A long four years

Hey all, I don't really know what to say. If I'm this stressed about it in Canada, I can't imagine how you're feeling south of the border. Man, I hope this goes the right way — for everyone's sake. Stay safe.

Erin and I made a video for our song "Elevator Men", for Song Fight! Live. This is one of our favorites of all the songs we've ever made. It's also the first video we/I have ever made!
And a really lovely song it is. Nice work.

Re: If we make it (Better Luck Next Year reviews)

Two listens doesn't seem to be enough to figure out the story, but it's about having an Australian friend? (Really? No didgeridoo sample after that delivery?) It was recorded at our annual weekend away, written about the one guy who couldn't make it this year. Yes, he's Australian. And Dane was dyi...

Hey, kids: Ill Cricket Crew got together for our annual guys’ weekend and recorded our Better Luck Next Year (our first SF entry as a group in 12 years!) on a beautiful deck overlooking Georgian Bay. I can’t imagine the other cottagers enjoyed it as much as we did. Dig that beautiful Canadian landsc...

Re: The Bad, The Ugly, and The (Good Trouble prefight)

I rarely post in the prefight, but this is important.

Me and my 8-year-old buddy Matthew are in — Blonde and Bald — with a solid track about a dog named Trouble. Don't worry, Matthew is on vocals so the singing is actually good.

Re: Song Fight! Is 20 Years Old!!!

Great to read these stories. Here's mine. In 2005, I googled “Boon Liver” to see if an old band of mine had ever been posted online and found the Song Fight boards because Leaf (who’d been in the band with me) was quoting BL lyrics in one of his VERY LONG and rambling posts. I started posting songs ...

I believe Smalltown hires "Kyle" from Logic and works with him for long hours 'till gets it just right.
