Mug-Slingin' Brawl on Soundcloud
Mug-Slingin' Brawl on YouTube


Where there is credit, there is potential for blame. So I blame BiaB for the story in this song because of the name of the Style that inspired it. Ironically, I'm not much of a drinker, and (other than karate tournaments) I was only in 2 fist fights in my life. Both of them were before I was 12, and both ended in one punch.

File:Mug Slinging Brawl.SGU
Key=G , Tempo 108, Length (m:s)=3:15
Style is _MUG.STY (Mug Swinging Reso Shuffle)

Dave Bell of Blue Attitude showed yet another style he can coax his guitar into playing with the perfect fills and solos. I sang and played bass.

Mug Slingin' Brawl

There was something goin' down way out on the edge of town.
I detected from its sound it was a brawl.
The sounds of broken glass and the bouncer on his [*****]
told me I should go and have a ball.
It's more fun than dancin' so come and watch 'em fall.
A mug slingin' brawl.

Well, I was in the middle of the fight of my life when a kitty caught my eye as a right flew by.
I'd love to sit and chat, but ya see here where I'm at.
I'm stuck in this mug-slingin' brawl.

By the time I reached the place there was whiskey on my face
from the throwing crew that had a few.
I ducked right in the way of a brawler making hay
and like the flying mugs I flew.
I staggered back and fell and then bagan to slowly crawl
for more mug-slingin' brawl.

Soon the kitty came around and found me on the ground
and said, we gotta get out of here.
She threw her whiskey glass, and grabbed my arm so fast,
but I reached for another beer.
She slapped me on the face and said she'd seen it all
in this mug-slingin' brawl.

Marty,

Nothing like a good time bar brawl song! Great vocal & bass lines - love the instrumentation. Dave really sizzles!

Mix is awesome. Loved it!

Lols go with this, Marty.

I can only remember one bar brawl I was in after a show (although there were many I escaped) when a guy jumped me while I wasn't looking.
He wasn't happy that his girlfriend was paying me too much attention.

Between the punches I recollect my 5 foot 2 inch mother wading in and furiously smacking him around the head with her bag.
Oh what fun we had in the '1960's

Anyway, your song brought back memories.
Love the bass sound.

Hi, Marty.

Fun song. The whistle on [***] was appropriately silly.

Credit to you and Dave, no blame! laugh

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

SOOOOOO glad you like it, Floyd. Just be careful what you drink with that popcorn. The wrong mixture could act like mentos and coke.

Ah, Vic, that's because you were a star. I was the typical bassist and had a hard time convincing the girls I was in the band. Man, the story you mention is TOTALLY worth your time to put to music. You are a great troubadour.


Enjoy whatever happens!

WOW !!! Grinning from ear to ear, my jaw on the floor, in awe. Seriously: this is superb :-) Made me smile, made me grin, made me outright laugh so hard, made me tap my feet. You are talented, far beyond your fair share, lol. The story in the lyrics is a hoot, and the music suits it like a glove! Hats off to you! :-)

Thanks, David. There was a time I planned on using all of the usual sounds from the old Batman TV show --you know, POW, BAM and all that, but the song wouldn't hold up to that kind of intrusion. smile

Thanks, Dewey. You're right about those guitar licks. They put the song on a much higher shelf.

Very nice blues rock tune. I enjoyed that song.

If you've played in some of the kinds of dives and biker bars, in the early years, like I have, you learn to keep playing if at all possible during a fight in the bar.... I've played a few places that had chicken wire across the front of the stage to protect the band.

I recall a few that were classics. I won't recount them here...maybe in another thread.

Ah, good question, Dan. They were almost identical. Each time I ran at least 90 feet at my opponent, jumped in the air and came down with a fist to the top of his head. Over. Thank you!!

HA! Right, Herb. Played in a band that thought the bar fight was a song request of sorts. One of my favorites was "I Fought The Law" for those occasions. Man, I'll be following you around now just to hopefully hear more of those stories. I was playing in coal country, and those bar owners refused the cost of chicken wire.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Marty, you kicked @ss on this one!

Great vocal and lyrics.

Dave, great licks!

All blended to perfection.

Loved it.


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.

Fun swinging bluez. Excellent title inspired idea. Clever lyrics with ACE delivery. Cool guitar parts, definitely Dave's territory. Clear mix and listens very well. Fun video too. You need some Sumo footage smile Thank you for sharing,

Thanks, Ray. Yeah, a friend of mine once said, "When the fight begins I change from playing swing on my bass to swinging my bass."

Thanks, Misha. Swinging is important in a brawl, I suppose. Funny you say that about Suma. A friend from Tennessee, who hadn't heard the song yet, sent me some video he made of a Suma meet, but it was too late to include in the video.

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
