Before We're Dead

Legbamel Not-Pop

Ferraby Lionheart's best song, period. Most of his music meanders and wallows a bit much for my taste, but Before We're Dead has a Dixieland, Beatle-esque thing going that gets me tapping my toes every time. This one is a musical pile of fun, and Mr. Lionheart hearkens back to the day when people routinely used stage names because someone (the performer or some smarmy biz exec somewhere) thought the real name was too...something. I must admit that Ferraby Lionheart elicits more curiosity than Mike Jones (for instance). While you ought not judge a band or artist by its name, let's be honest and admit that we all do it from time to time. Ferraby's got a hook, so why not use it?

    I'm confused. Ferraby is his real name.

    Ferraby may be his real first name, but Lionheart is a stage name. The Mike Jones example was just that, I'm not trying to say that it's his actual name.
