2 Cents Left...

The nucleus of the group are two of the original members of Copper Penny, a band from Lunchbucket in the 70s that did quite well in Canada. You can still hear their biggest hit, Sittin' on a Poor Man's Throne, quite often on the oldies stations. But that hit came after these two had left the band.

So they called this offshoot, 30 years later, 2 Cents Left (2 Cents Left of the original Copper Penny). In fact, there are quite a few cents still around, but not the original members. There is a third original member, but he wasn't interested in the project.

This song was written by Voin & Paulie, and the poem at the end by me. The project as a whole consists of numerous Lunchbucket musicians who contributed their voices and their playing. Most of them are long-time friends of Voin & Paulie.

The album is called This One's For Kenny. Kenny Hollis was the lead singer of the Copper Penny, who died several years ago.

Help! I've written and I can't get up!
