1998 was probably a pretty good year for The Mighty Mighty Bosstones. This was the year their “Live at the Middle East” album was released and it followed on the heals of the successful “Let’s Face It” record. Momentum was certainly on their side. The video below appears to be from the television show Reverb which ran on HBO in the late nineties. This episode featured the Bosstones, Smashmouth, and Save Ferris, because the nineties.

Big D And The Kids Table - New England 

Well, I’ve already been to Paris, I’ve already been to Rome.
But what did I do but miss my home? 
Oh, New England.
I went out west to Californ’ 
But I missed the land where I was born.

I’m playing a show next month at a tattoo parlor. I’ve been thinking for a really long time now about getting inked up, and I think I’m going to make it happen. I’ve had the idea to start small, with some text, and I wanted this Big D and the Kids Table reference for a while, because “Music- a steady riot in my soul” is something I take to heart, 24/7, and music’s always over my shoulder and behind me should I need it. It’s just a mock up on a computer since I totally suck at drawing, but I’m going to trace it out and tweak it a bit and work with an artist on it.

Beautiful!
