Bucky Fire in the Field smolder with soulful progressive blues quite unlike anything I've heard recently. Killer guitar riffs roosting with twang and greasy vocals crooning along in the spirit of rock n roll.

about

Play it loud. This is a concept album. There lies a keyhole somewhere above, around, inside, all leading... well, you'll have to find out. The songs and stories peek into a once black and white existence, now multicolored in horror and exaltation. Take the ride in full. The band did; with blood and sweat as the seam to their vision quest into the tea room. The fierce groove hypnosis took place inside the one tracking room at Oil Can Studios in Rollinsford, NH. All tracks were cut live with guitar, bass, and drums. Fire in the Field expand and contract in a tight honesty along the path of true rock and roll. So paint your wagon, and paint it red.

Track Name: Piece Of My Head
piece of my head
the part that i dread, come on
the heart in my chest
it beat me to death, come on

i’ve been lyin’ for too long

sick on the night
no breath in the light

my hands taken back
lost shimmer and snap, good god
a pale full of lust
she’s commin’ she must, you know

i’ve been crying, for too long

sick on the night
no breath in the light

piece of my head
the part that i dread, come on
drown in my smoke
black death on approach, you know

i’ve been dying for too long

the more that i speak the quicker i leak
my fingers run cold not meant to be old
a piece of my head
Track Name: Days
some days i roll with dead men
other times i sit with you
my darlin’ done left me lord
left me this morning
nightmare of yesterday ring true

a dozen too many
my blues is plenty

ain’t no one gonna reckon with you baby
but i can’t help gettin’ down

come, now, you’ve gotta reckon with me,
get, down, get on be free

some days i run with dead men
other pains have lust for my mind
too tired to look for your desires
i need you to kick in some my friend

a dozen too many
my blues is plenty

ain’t no one gonna reckon with you baby
but i can’t help gettin’ down

come, now, you’ve gotta reckon with me,
get, down, get on be free

a dozen dead, laced in step babe, a dozen dead it’s true
a dozen dead, laced in step babe, a dozen dead it’s true
they bargain my hands at the gallows’ pole
as i beckon to you, as i beckon to you, as i beckon

some days I dance in the sunset
all these times I bleed for you
well i’m beaten, now i’m broken
but i dance, i dance for you

a dozen too many
come, now , you’ve gotta reckon with me,
get, down, get on be free
Track Name: Stone Hearted Creature
dark walk on the town tonight
give me one moment to make myself right
blue horizon commin’ on down
your groove is my groove
better hold on tight

stone hearted creature
baby won’t you take me home

cool grin alive beneath your eyes
the arrow of love strikes me inside
valley of power in the house of rain
boilin’ down, down again

stone hearted creature
baby won’t you take me home

smooth wind keeps you in disguise
the hands of the goddess open up wide
awake i find a welcoming stare
a gift of love given to the sunrise

stone hearted creature
baby won’t you take me home
Track Name: Blue Moonshine Thrills
i got something that will soothe your soul
gonna change your mind babe, you’ll never grow old
i got something that will take you in
gonna touch your body, free you to sin

blue moonshine thrills, kill cool dark demons
blue moonshine thrills

save me on my way to the river

i took something that will bring your down
but it’s so nice, it lays you to the ground
i took something that will bring me up
numb to the lady trying to make me sup

blue moonshine thrills, kill cool dark demons
blue moonshine thrills

save me on my way to the river of death

i took something to suck you dry
what it tells you feels like no lie
i don’t know what I been sold
all i know is it gets me stoned
Track Name: Suzie
suzie comes from the depths boys
oh she never, never stops to rest
cover up your neck now, please stay awake
she’s a vampire, she’ll take you down

no suzie, your fire burns me baby
no suzie

i know just what she’s thinkin’
i better watch out cause, i’ve been doin’ some drinkin’
although i must admit i miss that touch
lord the fire, burns too much

no suzie, your fire burns me baby
no suzie,
no suzie, i’m drowning in the black
no suzie, i’m driftin’ in the black

when she sinks her teeth into you
your eyes go black, and you see nothin’ new
don’t believe your spirit when suzie comes up to say
“you’re a vampire now my boy follow me this way”
Track Name: Skyline Train
the skyline train leaves me
what happened to the roads we walked?
what was said, what we did, it took us out
no beacon from the ride we sought

there’s my shadow, there it sits on the banks of nowhere
of nonsense and number, day after day

the skyline train goes on
to another set of lovers without the danger
it gives light to their world and takes them there
but for us it’s just a lantern gone out

there’s my shadow
there it sits on the banks of nowhere
of nonsense and number, day after day
not a day gone by, i haven’t trouble my tired eye, for that sky line train

the heavens now ablaze with the marking
steam engines defy gravity
well i want you in my heart again
but that ride you know it’s gone round the bend
Track Name: Let It Be So
i am no confessor
you know how black my sins are
you gotta walk like a stone, in this old world
if you hang for silence
let it be so

ain’t got no taste
ain’t got no patience
mumble with the tongue
says “good gracious”

i am no midnight healer
you know how my eyes like to wander
you gotta tread as a beast up in here
if your name is taken,
let it be so

ain’t got no taste
ain’t got no patience
mumble with the tongue
says “good gracious”

i am no squanderer
you know how dangerous that can be
you’ll not see me fly
like we were meant to
if you see the in-between
protect it so
Track Name: Ferryboat River Ride
in the copper light, i sing for you
on fall season’s heavy might, those seasons with you
silk shade on the old window, when i would shut them for you
remember a time of another, one more blip, in our blunder

when the wolves and the mist, and the birds and the bees
shine in on the night
that’s when i’ll see ya, crossin’ to the ferryboat river ride

hey, now
everybody wanna get down tonight
hey, now
on the ferryboat river ride

oh i hope you heeded the words of the alley cat, girl
cause two cents ain’t gonna get you nowhere, know what i mean
they know your name, what you drink, and who you are
Oh baby, oh darlin’, tell me, what have you done?

hey, now
everybody wanna get down tonight
hey, now
on the ferryboat river ride

just when i thought all the gamblin’ could be done
i see a man to your left and girl he’s got a gun
i already said they know your name, what you drink, who you are
and now darlin’ they sure as hell know what you done took too far

hey, now
everybody wanna get down tonight
hey, now
on the ferryboat river ride
Track Name: Shiver
caged in the rafter, jailhouse on the tier
rest for my woes, should be coming in droves
bore the lifted sand, from the stove of sun
fan my lifted cold, should be a painful run

shiver of the spider web
in waist high water
soggy plumes of wind
a quip for the dreary dim

magnets in my pocket, belt loops of haste
candy inside a locket, shoelace ain’t no waste
seven lies and seven ties, poison comes cheap
seven flies and double eyes, cyclones start to creep

shiver of the spider web
in waist high water
soggy plumes of wind
a quip for the dreary dim

bleak and blurry, smokestacks of fury
stylized killings of a twisted man

nifty rings fortune, sparkle in the maze
quickness of a lightnin’ strike, rewoven in the light

shiver of the spider web
in waist high water
soggy plumes of wind
a quip for the dreary dim
Track Name: Caravan & Hawk
from dynasty to democracy
the start of headline hypocrisy
less sold in the margin, of ecstasy
limes grown in the garden of fallacy

no dance eternal
no chains or money

it’s the living wire
in the pit of thieves
the den of angst
in acquiring dreams

from bleak hypocrisy to dead line
the calls and lies of motor mouth swine
to the brink and back without no shoeshine
flagstaff stuck in the clock spring pantomime

no dance eternal
no chains or money

it’s the living wire
in the pit of thieves
the den of angst
in acquiring dreams

just remember one thing
evil ain’t nothin’
no clock to beat
the caravan & hawk
they run the street
they run the street
Track Name: Gypsy Tea Room
down the line we’ve got so far to go
she was just a sailor’s sweetheart don’t you know
handprint on the wall – the whiskey’s gone, my mammy knows
the little gypsy tea room all colored rose

paint your wagon oh paint it red
paint it for the devil at the back door
he rolls them dice on a scattered whisper now
he rolls them dice on words muttered

out of time the cradle starts to roll
open back dresses catch your eye just so
gold sash at the ready to blindfold your soul
This is the tea room of plentiful rose

paint your wagon oh paint it red
paint it for the devil at the back door
he rolls them dice on a scattered whisper now
he rolls them dice on words muttered

jealousy gallivanting through the patches
street corner lights bright as the flash of matches
no matter sailor joe sees beatrice and fetches
welcome to the tea room of the wretches

paint your wagon oh paint it red
paint it for the devil at the back door
he rolls them dice on a scattered whisper now
he rolls them dice on, words-
