about

“Manzanillo St.” is the second full length from Josh Lippi & The Overtimers. The album began while Josh was living in Mexico City. For weeks Josh was living in a small apartment and would walk through the city. One of the streets he walked on was Manzanillo St. and the characters and environment would inspire many of the songs and artwork for the album. Borrowing time from a friend’s small studio and recording in the living room of his apartment, the basics for the album took shape. For most of the year Lippi was touring the world working for other artists and would continue to write in the backstages of clubs, vans, tour busses and planes. On a break between tours Josh pulled a four day stand at the legendary Different Fur studios in San Francisco, CA, literally sleeping on the couch in the control room and put all the pieces together to complete the record. "Manzanillo St.” is a further exploration into Lippi's Rock & Roll influences, drawing inspirations from early Brit Rock, 50’s doo-wop, Mexican culture, social struggles, observations of life on the road and the changes at his home. Taking on most of the instruments himself and releasing the record on his own Truth Music Label, Josh Lippi & The Overtimers emote the energy and spirit of DIY rock & roll, putting in the overtime work to get things done independently.



「Manzanillo St.」は、トミー・ゲレロのツアーメンバーであり、ブラックトップ・プロジェクトのメンバーとしても活動する、ジョシュ・リッピ&ザ・オーバータイマーズのセカンドアルバム。アルバム制作は、ジョシュがメキシコシティに滞在している時に開始した。彼は数週間にわたって小さなアパートで暮らしながら、町中を歩き回ったという。タイトルのマンザニーヨ通りは彼が歩いたストリートで、そこで出会った人々、風景、環境が、アルバムの楽曲やアートワークのインスピレーションになった。

友人の小さなホームスタジオと自身のアパートのリビングルームでアルバムの基礎を作り上げたジョシュは、その後の1年間、様々なアーティストと世界中を飛び回った。ツアー中は、クラブの楽屋、バンやツアーバスの車内、さらには飛行機の中で曲作りを続行。最終的にはサンフランシスコの伝説的スタジオ、Different
Furに4日間こもってレコーディングに没頭し、コントロールルームのソファで寝泊まりしながら作品を完成させた。

「Manzanillo St.」は、ジョシュが受けたロックからの影響をさらに探究したアルバムで、初期のブリットロックや50年代のドゥワップ、メキシカンカルチャー、社会問題、ツアー体験、ホームタウンであるサンフランシスコの変化などにインスパイアされている。ほぼすべての楽器を彼が自ら演奏し、自身のTruth
Music Labelからリリースされる本作は、DIYロックンロール精神とエネルギーが詰まった傑作だ。

Track Name: Something New
Take me back to times when things were fine and I didn't know
that I had inside all these thoughts that would grow
and I didn't have to go it alone.
All these people wearing suits and ties and claiming the street
moving fast to find a way without using their feet
you moving ahead or are you falling asleep.

This dreamer's not gone
but sometimes these nights I feel alone
like I'm the only one that's left to try,
Let's make something new.

You can't live here unless you bet the big blind
or pitch your tent, and it's the sign of the times
the city of love became the city of dying
well that's alright I'm alive.

This dreamer's not gone
but sometimes these nights I feel alone
like I'm the only one that's left to try.

A new design
in such short time
who's construct dismantled a culture that made it exciting
for you to come here and start your own comfy life
but the architects and the ones that lay bricks
can't seem to find enough money to stay here
when a city become a private club
but there's still light and they will shine.

This dreamer's not gone
but sometimes these nights I feel alone
like I'm the only one that's left to try,
Let's make something new.
Track Name: The Girl with the Tambourine
The door swings back and in comes the breeze
cold as ice with a Tambourine
words cocked back like a shotgun
but she don't need to use them
ain't here for your fun, and I said...

You need some help coming off the street?
didn't even break a stride
eyes like a do or die
and I tried and I tried and
to look away
I tried and I tried and
but I can't just seem to
look away.

She took the stage
sharpened eyes
a purple leg from the tambourine at her side
drag from a cigarette
had the room like a magnet
thousands of people could be watching her
but she don't bat an eye
and she smiled with a wink and
took my guitar and
told me to not get
In the way, look out!

She rips the room
the tables fly
they can't believe
believe their eyes

Don't get in the way of the Girl with the Tambourine.
Track Name: Talk to Me
All it takes is conversation
but I never learned to talk till I met you
the songs were on the station
but I only knew better but to follow suit

Then you came along
when I was so far gone
and a new life that seemed impossible was here

Talk to me baby
cuz I could hear you talk all night long

Your words are spoke from miles away
but I could drive all night
just to hear you say my name again, my love
your more than i deserve
your words they calm my nerves

Talk to me baby
cuz I could hear you talk all night long
Track Name: Calle
Pour water on the dust
it still dries out in the heat
you fill the potholes
still on a one way street
take a look around
live wires they hang like vines
the streets become a battlefield
a moment that's lost in time

And the prices seem to rise
the people they pay with lives
cuz you can eat gas as the tanks roll past your blinded eyes
and families are torn apart
just looking for a place to start
a doctor with no medicine
an innocent that's turn to crime.

The Calles of the world are on fire again
there's no time for it
the Calles of the world they're on fire again
burn bright today
burn bright

We stand tall
and your time's through

The Calles of the world they're on fire again.
there's no time for it
the Calles of the world they're on fire again
burn bright today
burn bright
Track Name: Get Along
We just don't seem to get along anymore
we just don't seem to get along
we just don't seem to get along anymore
we just don't seem to get along
well I don't care
I just don't care anymore
yeah I don't care
I just don't care anymore

I gave you my coat in the pouring rain
you kept on walking
said that I was to blame
these clothes will dry
but not today
I threw my penny in your wishing well
the house is on fire
and you won't ring the bell

Well figure it out
you can figure it out for yourself
yea figure it out
you can figure it out for yourself

We just don't seem to get along anymore
we just don't seem to get along
we just don't seem to get along anymore
we just don't seem to get along
well I don't care
I just don't care anymore
yeah I don't care
I just don't care anymore
Track Name: Nice Life
When your hearts stops
I hope that I'm there
to offer you some peace at least
to show you someone cared
because the times that we choose
always seem to refuse
a life can change with a phone call
the next day ain't what you knew

It came on fast
sometimes you see it coming
the world world was your ocean
and I was working at a restaurant
your spark gave us the fire
living dreams
nice life

I'll find a way
to keep you by my side
you're always here
you will never die
with me you grow
you've done so much for me
you'll never know

And yet these days go flying by
but you are all I need just to keep my speed
not let another year go by
and if my dreams could me one thing
it's keeping your vibe alive
I'll always play a song for you
his train go flying by

I'll find a way
to keep you by my side
you're always here
you will never die
with me you grow
you've done so much for me
you'll never know
Track Name: Torn
It's coming real fast
scroll back down to find out what you know
cuz it's all there
set me up right
let me see just what I want to see
just my side
You
you'll find out that you are just like me
choosing only what you want to see.

It's coming back again my friend
we are just the same but trying to pretend
that you're all lies and I will never let you win
there's no end if we never begin

We're all Torn

Fuck your fake news
all you want is money and control
so I'm told
You
all you want is benefits for free
let's go to war as long as it's not me

It's coming back again my friend
we are just the same but trying to pretend
that you're all lies and I will never let you win
cuz you will break before I ever bend

We're all Torn

It's coming back again my friend
we are just the same but trying to pretend
that you're all lies and I will never let you win
cuz you will break before I ever bend

We're all Torn
Track Name: Made it
Sorry that I'm working late tonight
funny how the time just rolls right by
thought I had it figured out
turned into an awful drought
and now I right back where I began
my love

This time it's going down
we'll get out this awful town
and you don't have to take the bus around
I figured out the perfect sound
to turn it all around
you'll see, we're right where we need to be
my love

I'll make it work some how
