about

Ginger, Baby, the eclectic debut album by indie-rockers Father Bloopy on Dippy Records, has a classic sound that you'd swear you've heard before. The lead-off title track is so catchy that at first listen you find yourself singing along as if it is one of your longtime favorite songs. The only problem is that these are new songs, by a new band, comprised of a bunch of kids in their early twenties. Self-described diehards and collectors of early 60s and 70s art-rock, Father Bloopy's first album pays homage to a variety of obvious influences, including The Kinks, Lou Reed, and ELO, but they add a unique flair and a modern twist to the mix that is edgy and invigorating.

Clever as hell from start to finish, Ginger, Baby is filled with wry, witty lyrics that will please fans of smart-pop in addition to those who feast on catchy melodies and creative production.

Father Bloopy was the stepping stone to Ex Norwegian, which formed in spring 2008.

about

Ex Norwegian Miami Beach

Not to be confused with EX HEX, EX COPS or X AMBASSADORS – EX NORWEGIAN is not a fly-by-night indie sensation; it’s more of an institution for irreverent, melodic, smart pop/rock

“Ex Norwegian is easily one of the best pop bands of all time...”

Track Name: Ginger, Baby
My merchant banker
Said invest in opportunity
Not the best noise
In the whole world
But I can try
I can try, I can try

Cue the prompter
I missed my line
Said responsibility
Is the new "sign"
Of compassion
Of distraction

Sugar spice is so nice, I'm ginger baby
Do not fear the plastic comes off
It's all shiny nice and clear

Ginger baby is clear
Add some pepper and steer
Clear steer
'Cuz in the Rhine gold is like water

Your so saxxy
When you do that
When you look at me
When you do that
Your so saxxy
Your so saxxy

Sugar spice is so nice, I'm ginger baby
Do not fear the plastic comes off
It's all shiny nice and clear

I read the latest
In the tribunal
Said some tricks were played on evil
Something strange
Not quite kenevil
I don't understand

You said it
When you said that
But I wasn't listening
Can you repeat it?
Opportunity what?

Sugar spice is so nice, I'm ginger baby
Do not fear the plastic comes off
it's all shiny nice and clear
Track Name: Pepper Tan
Feelin' lil uptight having been here before
Every thing's alright you assure me once more
With your smile so coy
As your hand locks the door


Didn't think it could happen again after so long
But time proved to weak to be strong

Never like the first time it's always something new
Something to look forward to

It'll be gone by tomorrow, I know it won't last for long
Gone by tomorrow - won't last for long
If I keep on wishing it was true

There isn't a clue... where to look for you
The moon shines too brightly on through you

It's the same old story with a same old wasted tune
Nothing to look forward to
Track Name: Baby Your Lame
You can say we tried
But baby it was never meant to be
All of the time spent is no longer memories
Faded away just like my dreams with you today
They're not there, you're no where

Baby you're lame
Baby you're strange
Baby you’re no where
Baby you know where

Maybe I’ve changed
No, baby you’re lame
Baby I should know
I should know I should know

You can say we tried
But baby, baby it was never meant to be
All of our love is now no longer memories
Faded away just like my denim jeans today
They’re not there
They’re no where

Baby you're lame
Baby you're strange
Baby you’re no good
Baby you're no good
Track Name: Florida No Fault
It’s not my fault, not my fault, not my fault
I could care less and know more, what you want?
It’s not my fault, no, I can not plea, it’s happened before
I cannot say what’s happened to me

Don’t assault, Don’t assault, Don’t assault!
What happens when you come on so strong
Please do not attempt to assault me, I’ve heard it before
Better off living eternally, it’s the same with these eyes

I can ______ you

It's not my fault, no, I can not plea, it's happened before
Sooner or later it's meant to be
That just the way it is
Track Name: Aventura
Going to Aventura
To see my fortune
It's not the same there
It way better
Going under sunshine
It never rains there

Aventura, in my heart and soul
Aventura..I wanna go

You're not so fake as
Everyone says you are
You are just perfect
To my eyes
I say to myself
Self you belong here

Till my dying day, I want u here to stay
Aventura..I wanna go

So take up your beach umbrella
Put another coat on
I won't take you for granted
No no I'll love you forever --- my obsession [get it?]

Aventura...woo woo...Aventura wanna go
Track Name: And I, Lover
I'm wild so wild bout lovin you you know
And I lover plead guilty to lovin you know

I cant explain the way I choose to be
The feelings too intense I'm in a dream

Right next to you, that's where I want to be
Laid out for the whole world to see

I'm wild so wild bout lovin you you know
And I lover plead guilty to lovin you know

I can't express the view of you in that dress
The imagery too strong words come out wrong

I can confess that when I like you the best
My whole heart seems the need to digress

I'm wild so wild bout lovin you you know
And I lover plead guilty to lovin you know
Track Name: Two Tays Too Today
Thought I must be joking
I'll tell you something
No place can beat
41st street
Too see a Tay, Hide away, While you see a Tay
I see a Tay...I see a Tay
I saw two tays too today
You better get out of my way

Take a deep sigh
Your life wont get better
Once you've witnessed
All the greatness
You'll be aware
Have no care
While you stare a Tay
I see a Tay...I see a Tay...No Way!
I saw two tays too today 2x
You better get on your knees and pray
Track Name: What's Kamila Doing?
What's Kamila doing?
I don't know
Will she ever see me
Or no show

Spending time together
Naturally
Loving you is never
Easy

And then I said take me back to bed
The sun always sets when your dear
Smiles graces my face in the meadows
Of the sweet contender
That you says is yesterday

What's Kamila doing?
I can't see
Wish it had to do with
CVS and me

Loving you's forever
Never ever
Stopping to recover
Ja chze peivo

And then I said take me back to bed
The sun always sets when your dear
Smiles graces my face in the meadows
Of the sweet contender
That you says is yesterday

What's Kamila doing?
Right now
Keeping my life ruined
Somehow

Whats under cover
You, me, or another
None does it better
Trendsetter
Track Name: Miss Morality
Hey, hey miss morality
You’re stocks are gray, you’re stocks are gray
Hey, hey miss morality
You’re stocks are gray, the money's red
The pain, pain, pain
When you have the nerve to come around

Hey, hey miss morality
You’re stocks are gray, you’re stocks are gray
Hey, hey miss morality
You’re stocks are gray, the money's red
And it bleeds, bleeds, bleeds
When you have the nerve to stick around
Track Name: Hot Down
11:20 pm and where are my shoes?
Hot down gotta get out to town
Need to see you need to follow your clues
Hot down feeling like I'm right under you

Spend cash, young and restless
Hop right down to it, living your life without fear
You just have to take the chance
You're up all night, feelin' right, uh huh

Thursday night I'm feeling over your skin
Hot down gotta get away once again
Wonder will I get out to sea
Top down my ships sinking faster than me
Send my regards to my next of kin
Your alright baby your all right baby you're all right

Ah, such an amazing achievement
Must have taken longer than god
Sheer quality beauty precision

Any trail leads me back to you
Hot down I'm finally dent in to you
Cancel all calls I'm out of here and leaving this zoo
Hot down final chance to keep it brand new

Spend cash so young and restless
You just hop right down to it, living your life without fear
You don't have to understand
You just up all night and you're feeling right
You just take a chance
Hop right down to it, living your life without fear
You don't have to understand
Your alright baby your all right baby you're all right
Track Name: Ginger
Arriving late at night
Walking around to get a feel for the place
Never been here but heard it was good
Doesn't it feel good to be so ginger

Thought it was so clean
The cleanest place I've ever have seen
Love to linger on for long
Doesn't it feel good to be so ginger

Had to say goodbyes
So many faces yet so little time
Wonder what will become of them all
Track Name: Who Pulled The Child Support?
Somewhere someone in the world doesn't have a cell phone

What are you gonna do about that?
About that.

Who pulled the child support?
Was it you? Was it you?

Somewhere someone in the world doesn't have a cell phone
To call on
What are you gonna do about that?

Who pulled the child support?
Was it you? Was it you?
Who pulled the child support?
Was it you? Was it you?
Was it you? Was it you?
You. It was you.
