KCMW Tells The Story Behind Their Songs: “Where Do We Go From Here”

Everyone has had that one magical night, that one irreplaceable time, which has gone forever. Everything afterward is measured by that moment.

This song takes place in Ventura in 1969 – a time of great change in this country – a new generation headed north to San Francisco in search of a new identity. First love was hard to come by, but that all changed too, one night at the County Fair.

    At first this song made me a little sad,the thought of moments lost,….but then, somewhere, there’s a feeling of expectation, and knowing those moments are not lost, but held,and hopefulness brings more.Its a beaut,thanks for posting.

    Wow, 1969 was a very important year for the American young people, the 60ies, flower children were about to get born, Woodstock, Monterey pop and all the music roundups,Some say that the American dream died When the 60ies revolution failed,I studied all that at my American history lessons at University, but I don’t think that the American dread died, it’s still alive and during this very difficult moment for the Whole World, I know that American people will stand together and overcome every crisis

    Hi Modern Westerners,

    I was a little surprised about the sound of the song. As far as I remember you have played a song with the same title at your show in Mannheim back in Oct. 2009, but it sounds quite different. Am I completely wrong?
    cu soon
    I hope this time weather in Germany will be nicer to you.You should have been here two weeks ago. 😉

      Hey Andrea–

      You are right–good memory! We wrote two entirely different songs with the same title. We recorded the one you heard in ’09 for the last album but ended up not using it. Then this version resurfaced, and we really liked the way it fit with a lot of the new songs on From Where I Stand.. We’ve been having fun with this one live–hopefully we’ll get the chance to play it for you this month!
