“When I first played the acoustic guitar riff I thought to myself “this is some cowboy music” so I hopped on that 2019 train and really tried for those vibes,” said excitedly, Bill Sly of single ”Spaghetti Westerns’. “Similar to actual Spaghetti Western movies, this song is a bit tongue in cheek and I’m going for a chaotic, acoustic to electric and back feel.”
Bill is a man of subtleties. If you mean “subtleties” is equal to a sledgehammer, that makes sense. Bill’s work in ‘Spaghetti Westerns’ is that ‘sensibility-in-irrepressibility’. A song that is an outright contrast to this mild-mannered musician from New Jersey (based in Bolder Colorado). A retribution of what means ‘normal’, clapped back with a slap – when Bill’s un-enviable jaunts and beautiful staggerings collide with the ear drums a sense of being hit by a railroad car, comes to mind. There’s just no getting around it.
Anger. Frustration. Acceptance. Resurgence. Accommodation. Bill’s alter ego brings unique poetry of those spectrums, right into the fore.
“The vocals are probably the most unique part of this song,” added Bill. “They have an etherial, almost ‘beyond the grave’ aesthetic and then the chorus is just supposed to be good old, raw indie rock.”
Bill takes no prisoners, when it comes to expression. He’s here to continue drenching ear-holes with letters and words that deliver the visceral powers that he can squeeze and muster.
‘Spaghetti Westerns’ is part of his latest LP ‘Girls With Good Personalities’. And it’s fab.

Girls With Good Personalities. Available on all streaming platforms. Artwork by none other than the talented @nmbobadilla . . The songs on this record are a bit more mellow than my previous ones. More acoustic guitar and while the punk element is still there the songs have a poppy, catchy quality to them that makes this record more listenable. My favorite songs are Spaghetti Westerns and You Broke It, Baby. Please let me know what you think I’m very proud of this release I put a lot of time and effort into it 🙂 . . . #boulderindierock #denverindierock #denverrock #denverpunk #boulderpunk #boulder #colorado #denver #njpunk #emo #bdsm
