Every time we think Maritime we think “Promise Ring.” Which isn’t bad. Vocalist/guitarist Davey von Bohlen’s distinctive, slightly lisped intonations have piloted the choruses (and bridges) of some really great songs (“Red & Blue Jeans,” anyone?). Well, Maritime’s back with a cut-n-paste, kaleidoscopic video to the previously mentioned “Guns Of Navarone.” No, not this one.
“Sticks and stones / might break my skin and bones.” That Davey. He’s always had a way of inserting extra syllables into well-remembered phrases, making them new again. Maybe that’s what made Milwaukee famous. For you:
