Do You Like Me? Check Yes or No
Joe Lies was founded in May 2004 when housemates Courtney and Christine decided they needed an outlet for their various romantic dilemmas. They quickly made the age-old discovery that all you need to produce a wellspring of pop songs is three chords, simple bass lines and a whole lotta heart (break). They were soon joined by their third roommate, Naomi, thereby completing the triumvirate of rock. (Or at least pop rocks. Don't feed that shit to seagulls. They explode.) The girls in Joe Lies come from diverse musical backgrounds, ranging from classical to punk to pop to nerd rock and all the way back around to sea shanties. Whatever their message, Joe Lies delivers songs with sweet smiles and harmonic spunk (and surreptitious kicks in the knee). Sadly, the band played it's last show July 28th, 2005 at the Abbey Lounge, simultaneously releasing their new EP and saying farewell to their loved ones. Courtney and Naomi are headed off to new lives in new states while Christine chases a Harvard Ph.D...degree.
