lyrics

Bucket Man walks with a limp into the library, away from pigeons and the double-knit humidity. It's hot out there. He doesn't need a chair, cuz Bucket Man sits on his bucket at the internet PC, checks his email and the poker site that lets him play for free. And he always wins, yes he always wins, yeah. Bucket Man waits at the bus stop with the bucket in his hand, making small talk with some tourists who don't understand. Who is this guy? What's he gonna try? He doesn't seem to be a danger to himself or anyone. You could call him Sherwin Williams' unofficial favorite son. He's not from here, than much is clear, yeah. No one knows what's in the bucket, it's a mystery. It holds five gallons, but of what? Who knows what it could be. He keeps it hid, never lifts the lid. Some say water needed man and so created us to serve. Which one's doing the conserving, and which one must be conserved? Bucket Man, he's got a plan, yeah.

Milk Carton Superstars Orlando, Florida

Milk Carton Superstars make songs out of guitars, drums and some reasonable words. Later Never Now is their new album.
The band formed in 2007 when Guy Larmay (guitars, bass) and Jim Myers (vocals, drums) began writing songs together again for the first time. They're often joined on stage by bassist Jeff Boyce and violinist Jennie Landau, and in the studio by producer Justin Beckler.
