Michael Reilly A rhythmically purposeful rock album, showcasing a wide variety of influences and styles. Some touches of metal and prog rock in the vocal delivery and production, together with a strong southern rock guitar sound that adds significant character to this live recording. Favorite track: Tennessee Approximately.

Scumbag This is a live studio recording, but the playing is very tight and clearly a lot of practise has led up to these recordings. An awesome mix of southern hard rock, groove rock with occasional forays into blues territory! Raw and rockin' with a vocalist who sounds more than just a little like Chris Cornell (a good thing)! The one song I'm not so keen on is the reggae-tinged Sister Sadness, but otherwise it's top notch! Favorite track: Baroness.

about

Captain Ivory's "Live From Groovebox Studios, Detroit" is the result of an incredibly successful 15 day Kickstarter campaign that resulted in the band raising over $3,000. Because of the band's amazing friends and family, they were able to fund not only a live album and video, but also the purchase of a trailer to haul all of their gear to shows. The sounds you hear on this album are a direct result of hundreds of hours of practice by the band, and the generous financial contributions of their fans. The train has left the station, and it's full steam ahead...

**Album download comes with a BONUS video of our performance of "False Remedy" for the album!**

Track Name: Baroness
The way she walks
With the silver spoon
has cut em' down
and she''ll to the same to you

The way she talks
of the Hampton moon
and the country club cocaine
her daddy bought, she blew

She's a Baroness
too rich to test her false address
endless mascarades
too young to tame, this hidden dame

She'll buy stiff drinks
and she'll take yours too
you tip your hat, but she'll never bow to you

The trust fund grade
high fashion she wore
was a purse on a shoulder
with her skirt still on the floor, such a whore

She's a Baroness
too rich to test her false address
endless mascarades
too young to tame, this hidden dame

But soon you'll see, there's so much more to things
find love in life and happiness that brings
you're so much more without the hand that feeds
wants wage war but peace is taking only what you need

She's a Baroness
too rich to test her false address
endless mascarades
too young to tame, this hidden dame
Track Name: Truth When You Lie
Your silent lies and quiet deceptions
are all, all that your giving me
your words defy, a content reception
of things, things that you've done to me

But I have learned before
what's less is more
and I will define, defiant designs
You know you tell the truth when you lie

Your thin disguise cannot hold the tension
and you'll bend, bend until you break
And I forgot, forgot to mention
I create, every mode you break

But I have learned before
what's less is more
and I will define, defiant designs
You know you tell the truth when you lie

Lies………….

But I have learned before
what's less is more
and I will define, defiant designs
You know you tell the truth when you lie
Track Name: False Remedy
Where did you go
was it out of town
with your slave made pumps,
and your gypsy gown

Miles away
and many leagues down
from the depths you go
when I was around

And in other words
you were in between
the common lines,
and synthetic dreams
tend to yourself
and claim to be queen
Your thoughts are unpure
your motives naive
You know its a false remedy

time to dispose
of all word of mouth
and revive some sense
of higher ground
there you should stand
on your promenade
and wave goodbye to false tirades

And above all else
you were in between
the common lines,
and synthetic dreams
tend to yourself
and claim to be queen
Your thoughts are unpure
your motive's naive
You know its a false remedy
Track Name: Sister Sadness
We meet again oh sister sadness
you've been my constant as of late
you are my shadow in the August summer sun
the sun won't set, I can't evade

I will fight I will contest
You slither sly snake in the grass
and I refuse to live your lie
I will beat the devil on high

The moment when it was all over
I basked in the comfort of the shame
but just then I realized
we are siblings, we are one
this kin of mine I keep away

I will fight I will contest
You slither sly snake in the grass
and I refuse to live your lie
I will beat the devil on high

JAM!!!!
Track Name: Tennessee Approximately
Well I'm heading to Tennessee
where the roses grow like trees
The smell of this engine lord
is ever sweet to me

Nothing beats this country
nothing feels like home
never said I was a rambling man
never said I was alone

And I'm driving, down to the city lawd
down them ol' dirt roads
I made up my mind
cus it's time, to find a new home there
past the trees with the breeze
that I'd once know

Said it's Tenn, Tennessee
Tennessee
Approximately

Southern women square dance
while the men just slowly glance
I don't know whether to cry
or beg for one last chance
but it's the lay of the land
a new immortal man
sees the distant skyline
where the easy livin' began

And I'm driving, down to the city lawd
down them ol' dirt roads
I made up my mind
cus it's time, to find a new home there
past the trees with the breeze
that I'd once know

Said it's Tenn, Tennessee
Tennessee
Approximately
Track Name: Six Minutes To Midnight
Hey baby sweet vixen lady, I've got to know
if hunting you down's your aim
Tell me before you go
and if so, come down and whisper in my ear
cus it's six minutes to midnight
and my place ain't far from here.

Sweet walkin and whiskey talkin'
let's take our time
discreetly our digits meet, and I can make you mine
come down and whisper in my ear
cus it's six minutes to midnight
and my place ain't far from here.

Boot's scootin' all across the room,
I see you heading' my way
lookin' cute in your crimson suit
Let's make it a day
Let's go love, I've heard all that I want to hear
cus it's six minutes to midnight
and my place ain't far from here.

So let's go
you've told me all I want to hear
cus it's six minutes to midnight
and my place is your's my dear
