Once and once-again A-towner Jed Davis released a single called "Yuppie Exodus From Dumbo" recently. It's a ragtime tune satirizing hipster Brooklynites... you'll just have to listen. As Jed emailed us, "it may or may not explain why I decided to finally get the hell out of Brooklyn."
The song's available as a download (99 cents) -- or you can also get it on limited edition wax cylinder ($30). OK, it's not really a wax cylinder. That would be silly. It's a plastic cylinder. From Jed's site: "Technically, the cylinder is not wax - it's hard plastic so it will never degrade, no matter how many times you play it on your family Edison."
As you might guess, Jed sounds like an interesting guy. After attending UAlbany and kicking around the Albany music scene during the 90s, he moved to New York City -- where he ended up working with both the members of the Ramones and, uh, Jessica Simpson (along with a bunch of other projects).
And now he's back in Albany. It sounds like he's happy to be here.
Jed says he'll have a full length album out in September.
We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
