VOL. V Issue 7H
Presenting The Wreckers
For those of you who were getting sick of hearing about The Ditty Bops, we offer you something a little different. The Wreckers is a project that Michele Branch formed with her friend Jessica Harp back in 2004. It has taken them almost 2 years to become an overnight success. We say that because you're never truly famous until they hear about you in Holabird.
Like the Ditty Bops, these two Ladies record for the Warner Brothers label. Their music has both a strength and a tenderness to it, almost at the same time. Their harmony is unmistakable.
Unlike The Ditty Bops they are not involved personally. Branch is married and has a daughter, Harp's domestic situation is unknown to us. Also unlike The Ditty Bops, they were forced to close down the message board on their website because of all of the negative comments they received since it's inception. All of us here at the Holabird Advocate wonder what anyone would have to be negative about.
Holabird Advocate Publisher, Jerry Hinkle, came across the group when a song from their debut album "Stand Still Look Pretty" was submitted for his approval for his Yahoo! Launchcast radio station. That prompted a look at their video "Leave The Pieces". Shortly thereafter, he heard "Leave The Pieces" on KXRB. Earlier this week, he had the chance to see them on "The Late Show with David Letterman". You can check out their website at thewreckers.com/ .
By the way, The Ditty Bops are heading for Kansas.
Haiwick News
We've been a little lax in the Haiwick News department as of late. Pearl Haiwick is moving to an assisted loving home in the Rapid City area. At 93, Pearl is having difficulty with her vision, among other things All of us here at the Holabird Advocate wish her all the best with this new adventure in her life.
Also Harold Hinkle reports that Mary Hinkle went to the come Hahn Inn to see one of Lucille Myers' sisters, who is visiting Agnes Hahn, and brought along her husband. He doesn't know which of the sisters, but our Publisher was under the impression they were both dead. We'll have to reread Greg Myers' Haiwick book, providing we can find it. If Lucille does have a sister that's still living, all of us here at the Holabird Advocate are glad things are looking up for her.
South Dakota Songbook
"Leave The Pieces"
by The Wreckers
1. You're not sure that you love me
But you're not sure enough to let me go
Baby it ain't fair
You kno you just keep me hanging round
You say you don't wanna hurt me
Don't wanna see my tears
So why are you
still standing here
Just watching me drown
(Chorus:)And it's alright
Yeah, I'll be fine
Don't worry about this heart of mine
Just, take your love and hit the road
Cause nothing you can do or say
You're gonna break my heart anyway
So just leave the pieces when you go
2. Now you can drag out the heartache
Baby you can make it quick
You can get it over with and let me move on
Don't concern yourself with this mess you left for me
I can clean it up you see
Just as long as your gone
You're not making up your mind
It's killin' me
You're wasting time
I need so much more then that
Leave the pieces when you go
Leave the pieces when you go
Leave the pieces when you go
