Hey Hey My My

I got an email a few weeks ago from the manager of a band called "Hey Hey My My". So I listened to the songs at their Myspace page and dug em so here's the bio and a track:

"The hey hey my my’s is a bet launched on the number two: two artists, two Juliens (Garnier and Gaulier), two guitars, two Hey’s, two my’s and a lot of luck on two people becoming fundamental. It all began on February 9th 2005, while singing a few songs for friends during one of the Julien’s birthday party, a fire broke out in the apartment. Luckily, no one was hurt, more fright than harm, but this inspired the two Julien’s to think of a part of a Neil Young song saying « It’s better to burn out than to fade away », which lead them to name their group with the title of this song : «hey hey my my». Tempo being set by such a flaming start, both write and compose folk songs in mind similar to Nick Drake, Frank Black, Paul McCartney, Johnny Cash or Brian Wilson (nevertheless neither of the two Julien’s never really listened to the Beach Boys !). We could say the torch has been passed."

Hey Hey My My - Too Much Space

Also, the new Grandaddy Album has leaked so keep your ear to the ground and I'm sure a few tracks will show up.
