Couch Session #11 — The Fieros
The boys had a long night, followed by a bright early morning,
having to face our camera without too much warning.
But they picked up their instruments, sat down and recorded,
something not even a crazy evening could have thwarted.
If it was my birthday the night before, I would have refused to play,
Citing exhaustion or stomach flu or something just as cliche.
But for these guys, it was just another night playing songs,
besides a hangover, maybe hunger, nothing was wrong.
They maintain their raspy-voiced rock even while wholly stripped down,
when there's not an electric guitar or drum kit to be found.
Impressive, especially since it's pastel furniture upon which they've sat,
and they played a maraca muffled by a ladies' hat.
There's something special about them that doesn't necessitate much,
just the music, nothing fancy, no need for a crutch.
Forget a stage, huge speakers or spotlights aglow —
just guitars and a shaker is where they put on the real show.
Nonchalant in their demeanor, but inherently great,
here's a look at The Fieros, a band we're sure you won't hate.
