The Fashion Jungle - Don't Sell the Condo

from by Doug Hubley

about

Doug Hubley, guitar and vocal • Ken Reynolds, drums • Steve Chapman, bass. One of my favorites of my songs and, I think, one of the Fashion Jungle's best — too bad few people ever heard it. Gretchen knew a woman whose charismatic lover, prominent in the Old Port scene, was rumored to be a coke dealer, woman beater, Satan in the flesh, etc. This is their story as I imagined it. I wrote the lyric over gimlets in the lobby of the Eastland Hotel on a snowy afternoon while waiting for Gretchen to get out of class. This recording comes from a videotape that she made of the FJ in the Chapmans' basement early in 1988.
