about

'Instant Classics' came together fast and furiously in the first 4 months of 2014. It marks RF/WL's first 'full band' recording with Rob & Jeff joined by members Hugh Wilson(guitar), Nelson Sobral(guitar), Kevin Jagger(drums), & (honorary member) Peter Gorman(keys).

Creativity and spontaneity abounded during the recording sessions, and each player elevated the songs with unique colours and textures yielding the bands finest work to date.

Wrapped in a conceptual radio format, 'Instant Classics' see's Red Falcon / White Lightning taking the reigns and pushing forward their quirky, hook laden sound that was established on their debut double album 'ROOTSY!!! ROCKY!!!! POWER!!! POPPY!!!!' in 2013.

Track Name: Time Has Come(Are We Ready?)
Time Has Come(Are We Ready?)

The time has come for movin' along and I'm not sure how to feel about it/
We've been holdin' on for so long and it feels quite strange to walk away/
Are we ready?/ Are we ready?/Are we ready to walk away?

Days go by with the blinking of eyes, the sun comes up then it's gone again/
My best friend says that love is nothing more than a beautiful flash in the pan/
But I aint ready? No I aint ready/ I aint ready to walk away

I've had this chip on my shoulder, about the size of a boulder/
That I've been carrying since the day I was born/
And I'm just starting to realize how terrified I am that you'll go

The time has come for movin' along and I'm not sure how to feel about it/
We've been holdin' on for so long and it feels too strange to walk away/
Are we ready?/ Are we ready?/Are we ready to walk away?
