about

Oh, my stars. An all-star lineup featuring members of Heavy Feather, The HEAP and the Critical Darlings offers a few great songs about stars… "Lucky Stars," which you can hear on this year's AthFest CD, and the beautiful "Stars Go On," but the other tracks are pretty stellar, too. I'm looking forward to hearing the Stooges/Pretenders-inspired "Disposable," a song Kathy Kirbo says is about "corporate greed and its long-term effects on the environment"—something the local activist knows a lot about. Kirbo says this project serves as sort of an experimental playing ground—a place to try out alternative tunings and go off in new directions not explored in the members' other bands. "They are all rock-based right now," she says of The Spinoffs' tunes, "but span from surreal, artsy rock to Deadhead-esque to power pop. Chris [McKay] said 'space pop,' and I think he's on to something. I like spacepop." [MG]

lyrics
Stars Go On (Kathy Kirbo)

Don't turn away
Don't put us down
You know it's time

Don't shut it down
Don't fade away
You know it's love

'Cause the stars go on and on
Stars go on and on
Stars go on and on

Long distance light
Tell me how it ends
Long distant love
Please don't count the miles
Please don't count the miles
You know it's love

'Cause the stars go on and on
Stars go on and on (and on)
Stars go on and on

But you and I, we burn out in a blink of an eye

But the stars go on and on
Stars go on and on (and on)
Stars go on and on

But you and I, we burn out in a blink of an eye...
Track Name: Disposable
We've been living in our trash
Gonna dump it in the bay
Look the other way at plastic decay

Breathe the air if you dare
Sign a release right here

'Cause we're disposable
Uh-huh, uh-huh (eyes are)
I'm disposable
Uh-huh, uh-huh (lungs are)
We're disposable
Uh-huh, uh-huh (eyes are)

We're a materialistic throw away, go away society

We used to turn some heads
Now we're looking pretty dead
I'd buy a new head if I could get you back in bed

I don't know how to erase
The scars on this human race
Can we lay it on the line?
Turn our insides out

Turn your inside
Turn your inside
Turn your insides out

'Cause we're disposable
Uh-huh, uh-huh (eyes are)
I'm disposable
Uh-huh, uh-huh (lungs are)
We're disposable
Uh-huh, uh-huh (eyes are)

We're a materialistic throw away, go away society
