Dead Wrong

by Caravan of Thieves

Fuzz and Carrie's haunting, swampy ballade with a contrasting cheerful bounce and tongue-in-cheek use of death in the story give way for playful yet soulful vocal and violin lines, swingin' guitars and upright bass and lots of percussion from the junkyard

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"This zany group brings a touch of vaudeville, over-the-top theatricality, performance art and an all-but-the-kitchen sink collection of percussion utensils (and a hubcap) to their brand of gypsy swing music… those wild and crazy guys (and gal) turned out to be the most pleasant surprise of the day."

--Huffington Post

New England's Caravan of Thieves are on tour in support of their new single, "Dead Wrong." The song is exemplary of a band on the high road to musical perfection and channels pop bliss through their trademark lock-tight, turn-of-the-century, bang out a beat on anything that can take it approach.

Like many families, Caravan of Thieves was started with a married couple- Fuzz and Carrie Sangiovanni, (guitar, vocals, various percussive “instruments”) writing and performing as a duo. By the spring of 2008, Fuzz and Carrie extended their family to include fiery violinist Ben Dean and double bass madman, Brian Anderson completing their colorful vision.

Earlier this year (2013) Fuzz and Carrie escaped to Kezar Lake, Maine with a couple of guitars and came back with the latest Caravan of Thieves single, "Dead Wrong." Being amidst the eerie calm of the lake clearly set the tone for this haunting and swampy ballade, but the contrasting cheerful bounce and tongue-in-cheek use of death in the story gave way for playful violin lines, swinging guitars and bass and plenty of our signature junkyard percussion ensemble. Once it was time to get in the studio, the band decided to team up with veteran producer Steve Lunt, engineers Dave Darlington and Chris Sanchez and focus on the one song for a single release.

Lyrics:

"Dead Wrong"

Bag of bones
Duller than stone
Too far gone, I was alone
Duller than stone
I tried
But darling I'm tired
Tired of lying, cover my eyes
Darling I tried

I was dead, I was dead
I was dead dead wrong about you

In love
Wounded and lost
Losing my blood, losing you
Wounded and lost
It went cold
Breathless and cold
Fell to the ground, when I found
I was wrong

I was dead, I was dead
I was dead dead wrong
I was dead, I was dead
I was dead dead wrong about you

And if you save me
We can throw away
The hatchet and the spade
If only I had known
How was I to know I was wrong

Its you
You I desire
Like a last breath, into the fire
You I desire
We missed
Our kiss when I passed
Oh, how I wish I didn't pass

I was dead, I was dead
I was dead dead wrong
I was dead, I was dead
I was dead dead wrong about you
So damn wrong about you

I tried
But darling I'm tired
Tired of dying
Darling I tried

Words and Music by,
Fuzz and Carrie Sangiovanni
