Hay! Tyler and Teeter (Ginny K. Boot, natch) from Ley Royal Scam have a new musical project.
Hello Fellow Gang of Unicorns -
2/5ths of yr friendly members of Ley Royal Scam - Tyler and Teeter (that's us! keys and vocals, respectively) - have started an x-citing new musical project called LadybiRdS.
We're totes amped on it and have been describing it as such:
Cyndi Lauper superfan meets (a cupcake pop version of) The Postal Service on diet pills (before Ephedra was banned by the FDA.)
We have 2 new tunez posted on our Myspace page here: http://www.myspace.com/weareladybirds.
We're releasing a full-length epic this summer on Creep Records. It's gonna be chock full of rad-zapping super secret guest vocalists. We shore hope you love it.
In other news, we're so sad to report that the Gilmore Girls is no longer a good show. The torch has been left completely in the hands of Veronica Mars.
OUr NeW WeBSiTE CAn EAT A WhOLe WaTErMELON, ToO.

Hay there, skippy. It's us, yr friendly resident song monkeys from Camp Ley Royal Scam, located deep in the rolling hills of Honeybrook, PA - conveniently nestled between Chik Fil-A and Toby's Roller World.
OMG so please just already check it, WE TOTALLY HAVE FOUR NEW SONGS BURIED IN THIS HERE PLAYER ALL WHERE'S WALDO STYLE - BE SHORE TO SCROLL DOWN TO FIND EM, you lil' detective.
Let's not mince words here - we are like proud new musical parents in regards to these magical golden creations - and we can only hope you are too.
This is what they're called, woot woot:
-Things Just Got Wierd
-I Don't Know How, F'reals
-Where Did I Go Wrong?
-Nike's Won Out Over Me (Drag City, Man)
In summing up and per usual - we love you.
Please note that these new songs nearly killed us.
Double also please note: if yr 16 years old or younger, can give us at least 2 months advance booking notice, live in the NY/NJ/CT/PA/DE area, and are prepared to shake it like there is no shame in yr game, we will gladly play yr birthday party, graduation barbecue, or bat mitzvah. In addition to our base fee, we request payment in unlimited quantities of bug juice, Ellio's square pizza and cake (preferably german chocolate.) Please have Mom or Dad email T. Mart to begin rate negotiations.
Hola Friends and Musical Associates -
Due to wildly popular demand, LRS hoofed into our sick-ass church studio and recorded some muy interesante new tunery.
"No, You Can't Change My Life" is so totally gonna be the thing to git T. Mart a quadrupes wide rig in the HoneyBrook Trailer Park and Ginny K. Boot out of it - both of their respective life-long suburban Pennsylvania dreams!
We now have all 6 songs from our ultra-mega comprehensive catalogue up on here - we had to throw down lots of clams fer more spizace - owch!
One final clarification to appease T. Mart - the brilliant musical mind, glass eye, and volatile mood-maker behind this operation: Ley Royal Scam might have been in the past, but is defs NO LONGER A FAKE BAND. See, we've already practiced like twenty three and a half times in a giant empty rock club in Pennsylvania - so git hoofin' and think of us differently - STAT! That means 'As Soon As Possible' in hospital terminology.
Love the new jams, hate the new jams, or whatevs.com the new jams - they are what they are: full boar 2nd wave Ley Royal Scammery...a band that started as fake by two peripheral players on the cusp of someone else's amazing rock tour; a band that was forced to become un-fake due to the wiley climate of todays ever so retardo music industry. But, retardo wif love, natch.
That, in itself, is stupenderific. And thank god this happened, cause it's the funnest effin' thing we've ever even done to spice up our snoozefest suburban lives! SHEESH.
What the effingly yrs,
Ginny K. Boot
In an age where most female-fronted rock bands are made up of former child stars or someone's next door neighbor, Ley Royal Scam consists of a young, controversial garment maker and an ex-Nashville songwriter with a glass eye.
