1​,​000 Pounds of Rain

from by The Boarders



The Boarders in a December 1995 performance of this desperate cry of the middle-aged heart, written in spring 1994. Notice the gains in ensemble and intensity over the 1994 version on "The Boarders, All Keyed Up." The title came from a Drydock gig at which we were obligated to carry the equipment up and down a fire escape in the pouring rain. It then took me four years to figure out what the song should be about. One of the first songs the Boarders learned, it stayed on the playlist all the way through the Howling Turbines.
