Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

For years I've talked about doing a Tim Wille-esque EP series (he did 10 5 song EPs one year for 50/90.) I wanted to do a punk-ish EP and read a soundboard post and was inspired.

BTW, it's hard finding a band name that's not being used. I went through several before finally settling on Itchy Nose

Soundboard post here: http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/content/blues-fodder

Guitar: Squier Mini Mustang
Bass: Ibanez Gio MiKro 4 string
Drums: Superior Drummer
Vocal mic: Superlux S241

Lyrics: 

I've got cat puke on my mandolin
My banjo smells like piss again
Vomit on my violin
My pets are getting their revenge

And I don't know what I'm supposed to do
How can I write love songs
with the shit their putting me through?

Cat puke on the mandolin's the least of my concerns
If I don't listen to my pets I think that I'll get burned
All I ever wanted was the truth
But dogs and cats, they don't seem to like you

I don't like the cat puke
So I'm breaking up with you
I don't like the smell of piss
So I'm breaking up with you
Up with you

I found dog shit on the floor
But he's never, ever done that before
Let me show you to the door
'Cuz I can't see you anymore

And I don't know what I'm supposed to do
How can I write love songs
with the shit their putting me through?

Cat puke on the mandolin's the least of my concerns
If I don't listen to my pets I think that I'll get burned
All I ever wanted was the truth
But dogs and cats, they don't seem to like you

I don't like the cat puke
So I'm breaking up with you
I don't like the smell of piss
So I'm breaking up with you
I don't like the vomit
So I'm breaking up with you
I don't like the dog shit
So I'm breaking up with you
Up with you

nice and vivid depiction of puke and piss and shit all over the guitars. perfectly sound reason to not write a love song.

See, this is why I don't own a cat, as much as my spouse wold like to. This terrific pop punk song sounds great though, with a really nice aggressive-but-not harsh guitar sound, so I'll happily listen to it over and over again to help me stay steadfast in my decision!

Haha! Great fun punk song! You’re such a rebel T.C. You speak for everyone of us that’s ever owned a cat or dog

Hey TcElliot, you did an excellent job on your song. I really like the chorus it's very visual. It's a fun punk song and a nice sound.

Ha ha!! This is such a great punk tune about an unfortunate near Catastrophe! I absolutely love the energy, drive, and quirky lyric!

Biggrin Great "love" song! That's an excellent hooky and catchy chorus!

How do you like that mini? I got one of those little strats when they were first around, it got pretty modified, but to this day has been one of the most fun guitars I've ever owned/played, and I'm not a huge fan of a strat, love their sound, just don't enjoy playing them.

Nice one. Musically reminiscent of Weezer, Green Day era. Lyrically, well thats real life! And of course its a tc break up song Smile

Hahah I concur with the sentiment, digging the song too!

Haha. Short and sweet, great punk rock vibe! I really love the conceit (if I'm understanding correctly), that the narrator's pets are demonstrating their displeasure at his new girlfriend by vomiting, urinating and crapping on his musical instruments. And that he's correctly interpreting their message too. Fabulous work!

This. THIS is why I don't have pets. Don't get me wrong - I don't dislike animals. I think they're adorable, lovable and all other "ables". However, dude can't roll roll with them in the house. I just can't. But your song is a loving punk tribute to the ins and outs, ups and downs, puke n' poop of having animals in your establishment. The track is fun romp; wicked-good humor.

Now there is a rocking meta-peta-songwriting tune. Also I would add cat snot to the list.

Hah!!! Brings back memories of... well, let's not go there. A song like this HAD to be punk. Nice work.
