about

"Love it, this is the real deal! Nothing fake or phony!"
(Jeff of the Future, WITR-FM, Rochester NY)

"The Carvels NYC play flawlessly executed garage punk with a healthy injection of pop fun. Lynne Von Pang is the inarguable star here, singing with a snarl dipped in delicious sarcasm. The songs are rare pearls that sound like the Runaways and the Shangri-Las sharing the same rehearsal space. The Carvels NYC do everything right!"
(Rich Quinlan, Jersey Beat)

"Catchy, Edgy, Smart Classic Punk!"
(New York Music Daily)

"(Lynne Von Pang) sings with soul...and red lipstick!"
(Sylvain Sylvain, NY Dolls)

“If Max’s Kansas City had a sock hop, this would be the band.”
(Tim Stegall, Austin Chronicle)

Track Name: Everything With You is a Travesty
None of your plans ever seem to work out
Your toys are all broken cuz you left them lying about
Some people say a guy like you needs therapy
Mama would say, that boy's just slap happy

*chorus*
EVERYTHING WITH YOU IS A TRAVESTY, YOU CAN'T SEE THE REALITY
EVERYTHING WITH YOU IS A TRAVESTY
EVERYTHING WITH YOU EXCEPT ME

Everything you touch has missing pieces
I have to ask myself what are the chances
Your big pile of trash is falling down like a landslide
Just the sight of it makes me feel so mortified

*repeat chorus*
Oh...woah
It's a comedy of errors, that never cracks a smile

Could I be the most boring person alive?
When I talk to you, you get a spaced out look in your eyes
No matter what I say, you just don't pay attention
Then I have to answer all your stupid questions

*repeat chorus*
Track Name: You Make Me Wanna Be Alone
You make me wanna be alone, and sing like Joey Ramone
I'm not in a hurry for you to come home, you make me wanna be alone

How is it that you can ignore me, and still be so annoying?
You're not gonna change, not at your age
It's very very sad and boring

*chorus:
You make me wanna be alone, and do a lot of stuff on my own
If I were to travel and roam
Well I don't think you'd care if I never came home
Track Name: It Wasn't My Idea (To Break Your Heart)
Baby well ya got my heart (I didn't want it)
Baby well ya broke my heart (I didn't mean it)
Baby won't ya tell me why
IT WASN'T MY IDEA TO BREAK YOUR HEART
Babe you got a nervous mind (I coulda told ya)
Happiness so hard to find (I tried to warn ya)
Tried so hard to make you love me
IT WASN'T MY IDEA TO BREAK YOUR HEART

I don't like the hurt it takes to learn about love,
Gonna give myself a break and do without love
I don't like the hurt it takes to learn about love

Did I do something wrong (Not a thing now)
Is something missing from my charms (You're a dream babe)
Tried so hard to make you want me
IT WASN'T MY IDEA TO BREAK YOUR HEART
Baby I'm the one that's losin' (Saying goodbye)
Don't know why I'd be your choosin' (Well I'm through crying)
You'll get over me but I won't
IT WASN'T MY IDEA TO BREAK YOUR HEART

I don't like the hurt it takes to learn about love,
Gonna give myself a break and do without love
I don't like the hurt it takes to learn about love
Track Name: I Don't Know How You Do What You Do
I don't know how you do what you do
When nobody's paying attention to you
Now the sky is a beautiful blue
But you can't see it without a good view
The year you were born, is ancient history
You're not a kid and it ain't no mystery
Work all day from 9 to 5
Paying to keep your stupid dream alive

I DON'T KNOW HOW YOU DO WHAT YOU DO

I don't know how you do what you do
You're runnin' around with your brain in a stew
Hoping to get that good review
It never happens, but still you push through
Spending your money and all of your time
Don't ya think you're at the end of the line?
Don't ya think that you've had enough?
Time to think about giving it up....

I DON'T KNOW HOW YOU DO WHAT YOU DO
