Album Notes
All I want to see in this world is people following their heart. Life will consume us if we don't fight back and I choose music as my weapon. If you are wondering why we would ever call ourselves Sheeny Men, I will tell you. It all started with my father, as young children he would tell my brother and I about this old haggard man who would rome the streets at night looking for disobedient children left on front porches and those bad little children were never seen again......"so you boys better go straight to bed or Dad will have to leave you on the front porch for the sheeny man." In my minds eye, I saw this old man covered in rags waiting in the shadows for the chance to steal away yet another child. As i grew up I learned that the mystical figure I held in my daydreams had actually been a real man. This man would travel through neighborhoods and collect the junk that no one else wanted. He would take it home, restore it's beauty, and then turn around and sell it again. I learned that Shaine was the yiddish root for sheeny meaning beautiful, unfortunately antisemites had taken it and twisted the name to mean ugly fate. Music is always changing its form through the ages, all any artist does is collect the musical fragments that lay at his feet and with a little work, beauty is restored once again. Then these vagabonds at heart travel from city to city selling their wares. My brother and I were going to college to become stable numbers within the ranks of the middle class. We had to choose, do we read and study music, become scientists of our art or do we pursue music on the many stages of Detroit. We had to follow our heart. As soon as we left the safety net of college perminantly behind us all of a sudden this ugly fate reared its head. All those who knew us said this was just an excersize in futility. Drugs, sex and that all consuming image of Rock and Roll would destroy us physically and spiritually. We have found the beauty beyond the rubble, and what ever our fate may be we welcome it with open arms. We are The Sheeny Men:Nate Rivard(bass and vocals), Charlie Rivard(drums, guitar, vocals), Xander Buckingham(Lead Guitar, vocals). Despite what Cd Baby says Old Time Is Vinyl, the record was recorded and mastered using all analog equipment. Our second record, "Sludge Brain" will be available soon on CD, which was also recorded and mastered using all analog equipment.
