This is a karaoke type video that my friends and I did back about.....15 years ago, I think.....We had a few beers, hanging out at Hampton Beach and we happen to walk by the place and figured....What the hell!
We searched through all the videos and this was the only song we knew....the other stuff was only dance crap....
The funny thing was that after we finished, we got applause from the crowd outside watching us....we didn't realize that they were showing it on a screen outside the store....
Please enjoy and have a few laughs!

I've had this compilation for a long time. I had gotten it because of the Mass song "Under The Gun", which is an awesome tune.
This compilation has been out of print for a while and one day, I am looking around Ebay for some Charlie Farren, I come across this and it is still there for $100. http://cgi.ebay.com/BRR-16-JAMES-BOND-CHARLIE-FARREN-TRANSPORTER_W0QQitemZ4778245568QQihZ017QQcategoryZ307QQrdZ1QQssPageNameZWD1VQQcmdZViewItem
I was amazed! I had asked the guy why, he told me just as it said on Ebay that it was because of the Charlie Farren tune "Living Daylights" which was supposed to be on the James Bond soundtrack but it never happened and also because of the Mass song.....that was it....I just laughed to myself....I paid $2 for it at Nugget Records years ago....
When I started this site, I told myself that I would post this just because I can't see anyone paying that much money for this....it's ridiculous.....
Besides Mass and Charlie Farren, look out for Macey's Parade (which my friend's band had opened for a few times) and Bruce Marshall, which had been a staple of the Boston scene for years....
Please enjoy this and post any comments!

This is great music from a great band! These are friends of mine who were the house band at Bill Ash's Lounge in Revere, MA for a number of years.
They are the perfect pop/rock band. I have seen them live more times than I can count and they always put on a great show!
Dana West was also my guitar teacher for a while. I wish I had the time to have kept it going....
I just found out that they are doing a SASS reunion in January. http://www.sassrock.com/sass_news.htm
Also, check out Gary's band Take That appearing at Bill Ash's Lounge.
I can't wait for it!!!
- Shy Away
- Lonely Midnight
- OK Carol
This is the second release from this band....
They do a killer version of David Bowie's Fame. They also re-did their version of OK Carol which is still an awesome song!
Same line up, same great sound!
