Here's a live video of DerbyTown performing the classic Doug Sahm song at TractorGrease Studios in Chilliwack.
An original tune of the band, this is an ode to the now defunct Vancouver music spot, The Marine Club.
This original song is an ode to a story from the Halifax Explosion, which devastated Halifax on 6 December 1917 when two ships collided in the city's harbour, one of them a munitions ship loaded with explosives bound for the battlefields of the First World War. The song focuses on the story of Vincent Coleman, a train dispatcher who was able to warn an approaching passenger train not to come into the harbour. He succeeded in saving the train but lost his own life in the disaster.
With its swampy, spaghetti-western feel, "Mojave Moon" moves you through the desert, but it's dangerous out there! The song was written by the band's pedal steel guitarist, Tom Hammel
