Official lyric video for "Calling Alameda" by WORDS. I wrote as well as sing & play bass on the track.

WORDS dedicated the track to Davy Jones, since the original inspiration for the song came from Jones' line in "Zilch" from The Monkees' 1967 album Headquarters. "Calling Alameda" was completed and partially recorded at the time of Davy's death earlier this year, which is why it felt important to dedicate it to him.  The Monkees have been a pivotal influence on WORDS' music since the band's inception back in 1986.

 

The digital single's official release is tomorrow, 4/17/2012, at wordsmpls.bandcamp.com.
