Only The Dead Know Brooklyn

The video of the title track is available for free download. A big effort.
Go check it out.

After a lull of 25 years, the Shirts (from Brooklyn) are back. Their CD (this one) has received all sorts of nice comments. The family plays together again.

They performed all the new songs to an enthusiastic CBGB full house on
June 28 2006. As well as a few classics.
