about

The Kevins return with a new wrinkle! Drummer extraordinaire Ed Gallagher powers the band through the seven original tunes that comprise the latest album, Make Time Stop.

There's country-rock, in the days-that-used-to-be vibe of Skylark 8-Track; pounding space/surf rock via Hubble Blows My Mind; and dark questions emanate from the Newtown-inspired ballad Assault Weapon.

Classic pop-rock drives No Time 2 Fake It and Make Time Stop, and two instrumentals - co-writes with Ed - the slightly oddball Overthink and the Byrds-sourced Folk Rock Daze complete the package.

Take a chance, see if the music can indeed Make Time Stop. Thanks for listening.

Track Name: No Time 2 Fake It
NO TIME 2 FAKE IT by K. Dennis copyright 2014 Slowfist Productions

How many times have you heard it said
If I could do it again, I'd do it different
We gotta go with what we know at any given time
So it's best to know a lot or get lucky sometimes
There's no time to fake it
No time to fake it

Step over here, you've got nothing to fear
It's time to admit it
Step over here, we've got a lot to share
There's no time to fake it
No time to fake it

Only got one shot, better think things out
Do it for love when everything counts
How many times have you heard it said
If it wasn't for love I'd already be dead

Step over here, you've got nothing to fear
It's time to admit it
Step over here, we've got nights to share
There's no time to fake it
No time to fake it

How many times have you heard it said
If I could do it again, I'd do it different
How many times have you heard it said
If it wasn't for love I'd already be dead
No time to fake it...
Track Name: Skylark 8-Track
SKYLARK 8-TRACK by K. Dennis copyright 2014 Slowfist Productions

Doug's Skylark had a loud stereo
Crank the eight-track, man let's go
Not a lot of tapes, some sounded crappy
But the music rocked - what else do you need?

So many songs take me back to that time
Seventy-four, seventy-five
Sucked when a track change stopped a song
Sometimes we didn't notice kept singing along

Clapton and Cream and Abbey Road
Zeppelin albums one through four
Floyd and the Stones got a lot of play
Not as much as Tres Hombres

Steve Miller had some killer tapes
Todd Rundgren always sounded great
Second Helping, The Allman Brothers
Elvin Bishop Let It Flow, Marshall Tucker

Who's Next and Brain Salad Surgery
Soundtracked minor debauchery
Deep Purple blasting Highway Star
Beer cans flyin' out the windows of the car

So many songs take me back to that time
Some are nails on chalkboard in my mind
Don't listen to 'em, don't like 'em no more
But I still turn it up when Traffic sings
"Light up or leave me alone"

Doug's Skylark had a good stereo
Crank the eight-track, man let's go
Not a lot of tapes, some sounded crappy
But the music rocked - what else do you need?
Track Name: Assault Weapon
ASSAULT WEAPON by K. Dennis copyright 2014 Slowfist Productions

The first thing that happened
Was the last thing I saw coming
The next thing that happened
Was the last thing on my mind
Took us by surprise, kept the hate hidden
Was he looking for a path, or a reckoning
It don't do much but rain these days around here

The first thing that happened
Was something I should have seen coming
The next thing that happened
Was the last thing on my mind...
It don't do much but rain these days around here

The first thing that happened
Was the last thing I saw coming
The next thing that happened
Was the last thing on my mind
What did we miss, what signs slipped by
Another boy comes undone and robs so many lives
It don't do much but rain these days around here

The first thing that happened was the last thing I saw coming
The first thing that happened was something I should have seen coming...
Track Name: Make Time Stop
MAKE TIME STOP by K. Dennis copyright 2014 Slowfist Productions

Everybody's watching the sky
A big asteroid just might buzz by
Crash into the atmosphere
End our days, I've got a bigger problem here

How do I make time stop when I'm with you?
I'm a natural disaster between rendevous
How do I make time stop when I'm with you?
Days apart are centuries of endless blue

A super volcano could blow
A tsunami, a tornado
Death by wind or raging sea
Either way it's secondary

How do I make time stop when I'm with you?
I'm a natural disaster between rendevous
How do I make time stop when I'm with you?
Days apart are centuries of endless blue

We could come unstuck in time
Pilgrims on a dreaming ride
Supernova when you are near
Light years away when you're not here

How do I make time stop when I'm with you?
