Hi guys. The title says it all. From hot lounge instrumentals ("Tiki") to the fun vocals of Scott Morschhauser on "Middle Class Hell" and "Cyclops Optometrist," the Metrolites rock! Woven together like the sound track to a spy movie by variations on "The Man From M.E.T.R.O." theme, these songs form an eclectic mix of spy, lounge, rockabilly, and spaghetti western. Instrumentation is top notch with "Nervous" Neal Smith providing the hot saxophone, to Morschhauser's cool digital vibrophone. Kathleen Gallagher blazes a hot guitar trail following the steady beat of Josh Duffy on drums and Devin Kirby-Hansen on bass. If you're like me and familiar with rock and pop music, you'll feel at home with this CD while taking a slight detour in the world of Tiki lounges and martini bars. However you slice it, The Metrolites are fun spy fi like the Omega Men. When things are odd in your life, listen carefully and you'll hear The Metrolites playing your soundtrack. GW amazon

A great post. Loved it!!
Recently, I have been hearing Spy-Fi, "Music for Spies, Thighs and Private Eyes" Vols. 1 & 2 on the Devlar Surf Sessions. This is great stuff and I was wondering if you had these lying around. Perhaps in a secret passageway behind a seemingly ordinary bookshelf? Here's hoping!
Love the blog. I am deep undercover as an ordinary student most of the time, so it's easy to forget my secret agent roots. Thanks for the daily reminder!
Sorry, Zilla - don't have them -- yet. Been investigating the secret network to pass the request along. We'll see. Got other spy stuff that will appear after Halloween - so check back frequently.
