THE MIGHTY MIGHTY BOSSTONES
Ben Carr-The Bosstone
At a time when so much of the industry’s output has become the musical equivalent of junk mail, listening to the MIGHTY MIGHTY BOSSTONES is like receiving a series of postcards from a vacationing friend: handwritten, infectiously fun, wish-you-were-here inclusive, and, overall, personal.
The best dressed band from Boston -- Dicky Barrett-Vocals, Joe Gittleman-Bass, Ben Carr-The Bosstone, Joe Sirois-Drums, Tim Burton-Saxophone, Kevin Lenear - Saxophone, Chris Rhodes-Trombone and Lawrence Katz-Guitar are back with that infectious brand of fun only the Bosstones can deliver. 2009 will bring us a brand new release from the Mighty Mighty Bosstones the in the process of writing a full-length CD of all new material.
"We are creating music together again, for the love of the creative process, for the people who love The Mighty Mighty BossToneS and for each other. We won't be pressured, don't have a deadline and are following, like we always have, our own fucked up game plan" – Dicky Barrett
In the meantime in December 2008 the band will release a limited edition 7" single on colored vinyl (one side is black the other side white), The single is to mark the Mighty Mighty BossToneS 11th HomeTown ThrowDown. It was also created to celebrate and honor our new President and his historic election. Featuring two tracks, a version of “The Impossible Dream” from Man of La Mancha (1972) a cover that only the BossToneS could pull off and a new track co-written by Dicky Barrett/Joe Gittleman “Next To Nothing” that chronicles what the world has been put through the last 8 years while at the same time looks towards the future with optimism.
After releasing albums for nearly two decades and touring incessantly to deliver the music to their loyal fans, Bosstones frontman Dicky Barett has become a role model for fans and aspiring bands alike.
“Yeah, I’m a role model—but I’m not a good one,” he says with a joking. “I know how to do the Bosstones, but I don’t know how to do anyone else’s band or music.”
So what’s the secret to the band’s success?
“I set the bar really low on the first album. I sang like crap from the very beginning. Now when I make any improvement, it sounds like I’m Pavarotti, ‘This guy’s getting better!’ That’s just because I underachieved in the beginning. That’s pretty much my advice to kids: Set the bar low.”
