Seattle super-hero Phoenix Jones gives thumbs up to new Quickie tune

Seattle-based Quickie will no longer have to live in fear of reprisal from superhero Phoenix Jones over their ode to the Seattle-based crime fighter “Phoenix Jones.”

Released on Oct. 25 the new single has received a mess of media attention from Seattle TV and radio shows.

Now, even Phoenix Jones has weighed in on the single.

“I love it. I think it’s an awesome song. I really appreciate the fact that they got my message right.”

Initially, Quickie lead singer Lou Trez and drummer Kelly Lichtenwaldt were tongue-in-cheek wary of the crusader’s response to the song.

“We haven’t spoken with him yet. The song is a sincere tribute, but at the same time it doesn’t take itself too seriously. Hopefully he doesn’t, either.” – Trez said.

Added Lichtenwaldt:

“Yeah. We don’t want Phoenix Jones to ‘Wham! Bam! Crack!’ our heads in.”

The song comes loaded with references to comic book legends such as the X-Men (“I don’t need my own professor X to make my brain cells or my muscles flex”) and “brings to mind the old Spiderman and Batman TV themes, but with louder guitars and a punk-rock attitude,” according to the band. The ode to Seattle’s fabled superhero was mixed by the legendary Jack Endino, who has his own super hero powers when it comes to music.

Trez said:

“We have a real life superhero patrolling the streets of Seattle. Fighting crime. How could we not write a song about that? Phoenix Jones has a suit, he’s got guts, an alter-ego and a secret hideout. But every caped crusader needs their own signature song.”
