Miss Tess “The Moon Is An Ashtray” – Listen

The latest song from Miss Tess is a blend of original rock and roll vibes blended with some downbeat country feelings in the kitchen of a honky-tonk with aspirations to being a Diner.  The swish of the waitresses’ skirts as they bring a burger and fries to a table that needs whisky, or at very least a beer, is captured in the gently swaying accompaniment to Miss Tess’ world-weary vocal.

The Moon is an Ashtray‘ is a tongue-in-cheek metaphor for things going wrong and dreams shattering.  Fly me to the moon?  With all that dust and rock and not enough oxygen to light a cigarette?  I don’t think so – if you’re looking for disappointment one can always just go home….or pick over this sad excuse for a burger.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
