about

The Vivs Boston, Massachusetts

They say that if George Harrison, Alex Chilton, and Patti Smith had a three-way lovechild, she would be The Vivs. This Boston-based rock band plays driving, smart, and hooky post-punk/power pop. The Boston Globe hailed their 2009 CD as “terrifically nervy; riff-charged, and sharpshooter sure” and named it a top ten of the year. Blurt Magazine called the band “impossible not to fall for." ... more

Track Name: Of Course
Watch me now/See me go/And you just say of course of course/It seemed like a good idea at the time/that is no longer so/Watch this now/See it go/I bet you’re lost but you just say of course of course…That’s okay. Of course…
Track Name: What a Drag
And these days/the world is so in the way of you and me/What a drag. What a drag!/And the sorry, the sorry state of things is not lost on us/What a drag. What a drag!/All you see, and all that you survey could be...just think/What a drag. What a drag!/Where did you go? Where did they take you now? What a drag!
Track Name: Ouch/Wow
You say “I just might go out tonight and be the last to leave”/And you say it like a threat/a comeuppance I’m gonna get, and then regret/But this tit for tat seems to be messing/with your head/Maybe you’ll just give up instead/All the things you thought where you were young, everything sorted out/Now, every man for himself/That is how they say we have evolved/Why does it come as a shock?/Little bits of wisdom about what to do seem close to you/But I’m not convinced you know any more than I do so, I’ll run in place/While everyone else evacuates/Ow, ow, wow. Oh wow. Ow. Ouch…Wow.
Track Name: I Got You Out of It (You Know)
I got you out of it you know…/You should thank me, oh you should thank me/ I got you out of it you know/You were standing in the snow/And the salt and the sea and sand on your bare hands/Oh/I got you out of it, the bubble/ You say it caused a little trouble/ Hurts the eyes; it’s a bright and blinding light/Oh/You could call it an escape/if someone gave a chase/But you ran the other way, and I thank you/Oh yes I thank you/Oh/You got me out/you got me out. Oh.
Track Name: The People I Like
You say nothing is coming out right/black of day, black of night/Look at your hands you got nothing to show/Put away your hands, baby let’s go/Do anything to avoid a row/better be careful now/You look pretty in that dress, looking to get some/It was a go, but now it is not/Kicking the tires a lot/We know you want it and so much more/too much to say here for sure/Walk around, say it’s not what you thought/It’s just not/Can’t put the flower back in the ground but you can always lay down/Don’t hide the real thing, no, no, no/Don’t put it away on my account/It keeps on coming down real hard on the people, down on the people I like/The rain keeps coming down so hard on the people, down on the people I like/The people I like!
Track Name: Nest in the Sky (Holiday)
And so…we will grow very quiet in time for the holiday/ I’ll tell you what, we got a situation just from coming down/See you in a nest in the sky, floating by/Who will you call out in your sleep?/Tell me, tell me/Say oh say, I have been thinking about…hey, oh hey/A siren, it’s calling/It happens/It’s happening now/I do the best I can to just keep it out of the way/I’ll tell you what/one foot in and one foot out splits you in two (I’m telling you)/Is this how you want it to be?/Tell me, tell me/See you in a nest in the sky…floating by.
Track Name: How Did He Look?
Looking for some news (a little news won’t kill you) or some mud for your eye/And you say “How did he look?/Not very good/What if it goes on just as nice without you? (Easy things aren’t easy things)/ Still you say “How Did He Look”/ Wait right here to see him walking by…Comes here every day at the same time/Come on paint: dry!/Not good/He really didn’t look very good.
Track Name: Radar
There are things you remember, like the one who got away/ Can’t put your finger on it, so you will get on with your day/ I got the radar, the radar all night/Swim in circles around me, like a striper or a shark/One more way to get dizzy, and dizzy is what they say we are/Wait a minute, hold on there now, where do people go?/They were right here, just a minute, a minute ago/You’re making a sorry sight out of me/ you’re making a sorry sight…
Track Name: Go Do It (Get It Done)
There are things you remember, like the one who got away/ Can’t put your finger on it, so you will get on with your day/ I got the radar, the radar all night/Swim in circles around me, like a striper or a shark/One more way to get dizzy, and dizzy is what they say we are/Wait a minute, hold on there now, where do people go?/They were right here, just a minute, a minute ago/You’re making a sorry sight out of me/ you’re making a sorry sight…
Track Name: Old Jack White
Old Jack White took a hammer to his thumb/Oh, look what he’s done/He took a hammer to his heart so he wouldn’t feel his leg/Hammered on his leg so he wouldn’t feel his arm/He took a hammer to his arm so he wouldn’t feel his hand/He took a hammer to his hand so he wouldn’t feel his thumb/Oh now look what he’s done/Old Jack White took a hammer to his head/Now Old Jack White is dead/Oh look what he’s done…
Track Name: You Get What You Deserve (Yes)
You get a kick from the little things/You think peace might have a nice ring/but you get what you deserve (don’t you get what you deserve?)/What it would take to make it right/That is what keeps me up most nights/These few years we’ll call them a loss/These few years, we’ll call a few months/Will you leave me worse off than you found? I will sure miss having you around. Yes, yes/What you got you call it a lark/You wonder about haves and have-nots, and if they get what they deserve (and if you got what you deserve) Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes.
