Be Polite like Willie J Healey

Oxford Rock ‘n’ Stroller Willie J Healey is fresh off his debut EP and out with a new single. Channeling Mac De Marco, the hazy surf-rockin’ 20 year old records his jams fully in his garage, hoping it comes out “like The Beach Boys mixed with Meatloaf, maybe.” THAT is a mix… Best part about WJH is his ride. He was going to buy a van, ended up coming home with an old limo…. which he says is dope for like, showing up to gigs in, but a tad impractical when popping to the store for some milk. That said, 2nd best is how polite the young man is. With regards to his garage recordings, and his limo, below an actual apology note he wrote to his neighbors:
Dear Neighbour,

I’m writing to apologise for my recent behaviour, and to set the record straight on a few things. It turns out that sound-proofing a garage is pretty damn hard and to get the guitar tone I like I have to turn my amp up all the way, otherwise it sounds like the beach boys throwing up. All at the same time. In harmony. I’m sure you understand. I am particularly embarrassed about the burger wrapper that blew into your pond. Who knew fish would want to eat that stuff?

Anyway, I hope they’re now ok. I think I’ve managed to recover all of the clothes that were taken from your clothes-line. I personally didn’t find it funny when Eddy dressed up in your wife’s clothes, but you’re only 20 once. Unfortunately the midnight tones are essential – but I’ll be more selective about who I invite over in the future.

I’ll also try to be more careful about knocking your bins over with my car. The trouble is that it’s quite long and really awkward to turn. Oh and for those who asked, I call it surf rock. But whatever, Homemade stuff all sounds the same to me. Come hang with me sometime.
