Album Notes

The US Postals -Priority


The slinky Along (1st Video/single), tells a tale of a vague concept of any hope for a decent future.

I Kno u Kno-

Followed by the seedy I Kno u Kno, no doubt a modern urban blues song minus
the, I'm lonely and dead without you premise, quite the contrary.


Strained is a song about, well we’ll let you figure it out.

Give Up-

Give Up harkens back to the sullen opening track "along", yet the outcome is far more
assertive than the title may suggest.

Building a Mystery-

Sarah McLaughlin's gonna be pissed... Building a Mystery (2nd video/single)
has been destroyed, rewritten, stomped on and left to die on the street.

Life of Crime-

Punk Rock and Slide Guitar?
Other than the application, and a few lyric mod.’s, the song is structurally identical to the original version, by LA Punk Icons The Weirdos.
It's here you get a clear vision of The US Postals, intension to lay on the
grittier side of the music business.
This is not your normal blues rock record!

Inglewood Blues-

Once again spitefully smudging the lines between Punk and Hippie,
Inglewood Blues (formerly new minglewood blues) is a blues standard by
Noah Lewis, that became a staple at Grateful Dead concerts.
The title change further suggests The US Postals (New Urban Blues) roots,
Crowning the city with their highest gratitude for its constant generosity,
thx Philly, but Inglewood is the true city of brotherly love, and the groups H.Q..
(Please no more east coast vs. west coast… We love u east coast :)
* Anyway, what will grateful dead fans think of all this???

Decline and Fall-

Rounding out the album is Decline and Fall (3rd video/single), a wee fable
about success, being the ultimate revenge. The title was lifted from the Charles Bukowski book Hot Water Music, and the entirety of the video was filmed in the heart of Los Angeles's skid row).
