Originally released on the ‘Rock N Roll Theater’ album that accompanied ‘Dante’ in April 2012. This song was recorded in the same session as ‘Honor Is All We Know,’ it’s about a real living guardian angel – flesh and blood.
Originally written by Mike Geiger, Woody Mullis, and Michael Hoffman. This track was recorded by my good friend Ryan Foltz, who was also the engineer and producer on the Rancid song ‘Civilian Ways.’ It features a talented group of Cleveland musicians called The Ohio Ramblers. I love Zydeco music and wanted to record something inspired by the works of Clifton Chenier, Rockin’ Dopsie, and Buckwheat Zydeco.

Written in the spirit of my work with Operation Ivy and the British Oi! band Cock Sparrer, I wrote this song during the financial bailout of Wall Street addressing the idea of hard times and importance of standing by your friends. I dug out my old Seville for this one and ran it through a Mesa Boogie amp, the same set-up I used in Op Ivy. The Bivona brothers from the Interrupters are my backing band, Jesse on drums and Kevin on guitar and bass.
