Where did you go? Ut oh, I lost you again You slipped out of my hands To the floor and out the door (no!) That’s three in a row I got nothing to show Until we’re off and running again I keep a close eye on you always But you got the best of me today, midday (go!) That’s three in a row I got nothing to show Until we’re off and running again (solo) That’s three in a row I got nothing to show Until we’re off and running again Searching everywhere from the backyard to the beach The sand holds millions of prints That look just like these And when I found you You were laying on a bench I put your leash back on and we walked on home again That’s three in a row I got nothing to show Until we’re off and running again

I took a walk to see How lazy eyed this kid could be And if he looks sideways at me Ill see him two for the price of three A pee a pod a slug a mod A lovely day to lay in sod I took a walk to see How bowlegged my girl could be And if she gives it up to me I’ll tell her stories full of glee A pee a pod a slug a mod A lovely day to lay in sod I ran into a tree This kid and girl were chasing me My nose it broke right into three And blood was flowing to my knees A pee a pod a slug a mod A lovely day to lay in sod

about

Beach Wolff is what you get when you mix one third salty beast, one-part rolling tide and a pinch of sandy howl in an unkempt room with red walls and stained carpeting. One night, singer/songwriter Mike Chick asked two musicians that he admired for some time to get into a practice space and learn two of his songs. In addition, and if all went well, they would also be recording these songs on a Yamaha MT4X four track the same night. Everyone was up for the challenge.

The admired musicians at hand were Nick Kaelblein on bass (Blind Justice, Wetbrain) and Bob Paulos on drums (Shut Up, Gay Guy / Straight Guy). These two took to Mike’s songs like they listened to the demos, and after about an hour of practice we were ready to roll cassette tape. Bob doubled as engineer for the project and got everything sounding nice. With pre-show jitters confidently shaken off, the three recorded all basic tracks live in about two hours and were at the downstairs bar eating pizza by 10pm. Beach Wolff has played exactly one show to this date.

Mixing and some additional recording was handled by Pat Noon at eightsixteen Studio in South River, NJ. Mastering was completed by Azimuth Mastering. The “Beach Wolff” image was originally drawn by Briana Hein (@ladylike973). Mike Chick is responsible for the assemblage of the artwork for this release.

In closing, you might have asked yourself “why is there an extra “F” in wolf”? Well, when all was said and done, a close friend listened to these songs and suggested, “You guys should add another F to wolf, because that was just FANTASTIC!” How could we say no to that?
