If I weren’t already so tired (and bored) of writing about my recent vacation, I’d tell you that besides the fantastic scenery, one of the things that made the LONG (long long long) drive bearable was the tunes –> specifically The Submarines.

You may not recognize the name, but any of you that watch TV (all of you right?), have heard the current Apple iPhone 3G ads featuring The Submarines track ‘You Me and the Bourgeosie’ from their recently released album ‘Honeysuckle Weeks’.
Their first music video just debuted … have a look & listen
I’m no music critic, but I know a catchy tune when I hear it. The Submarines have several catchy tunes. You really need to go and pick up the album. My favourite is ‘Swimming Pool’.
The Submarines are Blake Hazard and John Dragonetti (aka John Drag). What make the submarines special to me (besides the fantastic music) is, John is an old friend from Dubai.
John has always loved and made music. I remember him being in a band called ‘Space’ in the 7th grade. They made their own ‘cassette’ complete with a home-made lightening bolt cover featuring Matt Johnson (I think?) as the lead singer, my favourite song on that album was Lynrd Skynrd’s ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ (still one of my all time favourites). Somewhere in the dozens of boxes of stuff I just can’t get rid of is that ‘Space’ cassette. I knew you’d be famous John!
