Fred Spek's CaMp CoMbO Toronto, Ontario

Entertaining, weirdo quartet CaMp CoMbO play
wacky jazz, maudlin ballads, crazy swing, latins, polkas, circus marches and surf beats. Darkly gleeful, often improvised and full of tricks! Gobs of original music, and a modern twist on some odd ball covers.

We are:
Fred Spek  sax singing
Nichol S. Robertson  guitar and banjo
Rachel Melas  contra bass
Great Bob Scott or Tim Shia drums

Track Name: Swinging Mood
Swingin’ Mood

Yea Prozac might do
Tried Ritalin too
You’re still feeling blue
Then a screaming fit gets you

The morning you’re sad
By lunch really mad
Will ya ever be glad
Are things all that bad?

It’s called a blue funk
Your heart it has sunk
Some might just get drunk
Isn’t there some better junk?

Ya can’t figure out
You’re lovin’ your spouse
Then you ju-ust flip
Hates got you in it’s grip

It seems that you’re a
Mood swinger too
Yea the shrinks have a
Name for you

It’s a new century
You feel anxiety
A desire to flee
The apocalypse you see

Someday they’ll invent
A machine you can rent
Plug it in your brain
And it tells ya if you’re sane

Fred Spek 2003
