Description

“Going Down to East L.A.” started as a blues/rock riff with some anthemic chord changes of Ramon's and added Tim's symbolic lyrics about the band's 2015 trip to East L.A. for a gig. The stong is a story of both hope and self-doubt when fate hands us an opportunity. We worked in some fun details from our trip but kept the imagery evocative of every band's preoccupation with fame. Tim even managed to rhyme "East L.A." with "Gethsamene", the olive grove where Jesus journeyed the night before he was taken into captivity! The band added a propelling drum beat, some cool bass riffs, and a strong guitar solo and recorded it at Surgeon of Sound Studio in Novato in February of 2018. As the song says: "We're going back someday"...
