about

"Idle Hands" ...Fatso Jetson's latest album and the first in six years, the word “inimitable” comes to mind, and maybe part of the reason they’re so ready to slip into and out of the bizarre is that Fatso Jetson have never really fit in to one idea of what rock music should be. They continue here to toy with the form, and as a summation of the last several years’ of their ongoing progression, Idle Hands delivers their peculiar charm in a batch of quality songs that underscore how special a band they always have been. Further, Idle Hands proves that aside from being one of the essential, formative acts of California’s original desert rock movement, Fatso Jetson are a band who’ve never found reason to compromise their individuality or draw back the reins on inspiration.

Their progression has never stopped and one expects that for as long as they continue to make music, they will keep moving forward on a variety of levels. Fatso Jetson are and remain Fatso Jetson, and whether a given listener is a newcomer to their work or a longtime follower, the scope that they encompass is ripe for appreciation.

Track Name: Wire Wheels and Robots
WIRE WHEELS AND ROBOTS

HES RAGING IN THE SHADOWS,
HES A RECLUCSE IN THE LAB
AND OUR MINDS BEGIN TO NARROW,
AND THEYRE SLEEPING LIKE THE PHAROES

DREAMS OF WIRE WHEELS AND ROBOTS
CROSSING ENEMY STATE LINES
TATTOOED SOLDIERS SALVATRUCHAS
IN THIS SEEMING END OF TIMES
LOVE HER DESPERATE DYING CITY
CANT SEE PAST THE DAILY GRIND
FEELING UGLY, LOOKING PRETTY
GET THOSE WIRE WHEELS TO SHINE

HES CONCOCTING YOUR DILUTION
POISON DIAMONS IN SAND
AND OUR BRAINS BEGINS SCRAMBLE
AND TOUNGS BEGIN TO RAMBLE


DREAMS OF WIRE WHEELS AND ROBOTS
CROSSING ENEMY STATE LINES
TATTOOED SOLDIERS SALVATRUCHAS
IN THIS SEEMING END OF TIMES
LOVE HER DESPERATE DYING CITY
CANT SEE PAST THE DAILY GRIND
FEELING UGLY, LOOKING PRETTY
GET THOSE WIRE WHEELS TO SHINE


THEVE BUTTONED UP THERE COLLARS
CAST THEYRE WEAPONS TO THE GROUND
HEADLIGHTS POINTED TO THE HEAVENS
NOW LET'S DIGZ THAT CRAZY ZOUND
Track Name: Royal Family
Hot sad space, and your sense of belonging
Through the mesas and rail yards and the streets
Observations in the dust storm gain attention
Some recover some are jettison to space

Rising up and pushing down,
where the friction meets the ground
No exception to the needs of the royal family

This commitment to habitual disasters
migrant monarchs turning back to painted hills
toward Slab City to Imperial diseases
Chance encounters with imperial unknowns

Rising up and pushing down,
where the friction meets the ground
No exception to the needs of the royal family
