The Lost Ark Studio presents "I'm Going Home" a cover of the classic track by The Sonics by the Seattle based band My Goodness, the latest single from the Lost Ark Studio Compilation - Vol. 07. Joel and Andy stopped by the studio to record this with us while on tour and delivered not one, but two powerhouse tracks during the session - an original, "In The Sun, and this ripping cover. We're so stoked about the results that we're going to press the pair for the first in series of 7" 45 vinyl releases by the studio, look for it soon!

My Goodness is a Seattle-based blues/garage rock band that consists of Joel Schneider (Guitar/Vocals) and Andy Lum (Drums). After releasing their self-titled album in 2011, My Goodness was on hold for the majority of 2012, but with the recent addition of Andy Lum it has found a renewed purpose, moving forward with a heavier, more aggressive sound. Straddling the line between raw and refined, My Goodness doesn’t sacrifice technical precision in the name of punk rock - they strive to marry both.

As an older teen Joel’s interest in punk and the local Seattle hardcore scene led him to the more caustic, progressive sounds of bands like Rites of Spring and The Blood Brothers. The latter was also a major influence on Andy, who regularly attended all-ages gigs in Bellevue, drawing inspiration from bands big on that circuit, including Waxwing and These Arms Are Snakes.

In early 2012, Schneider was in search of a new drummer for My Goodness, and the possibility of collaborating musically with Andy Lum was finally realized. The pair recently recorded their second full length at Seattle’s London Bridge studios with esteemed Seattle producer Rick Parashar (Pearl Jam, Temple Of The Dog, Blind Melon) and have released a 7-inch for “Cold Feet Killer” b/w “I’ve Got A Notion” in February of this year.


I'm Going Home - My Goodness

When I was a boy I had a mind of my own
Told my folks I was leaving home
Mamma, Pappa told me, son you better not go
Packed my things and started to go

I’m going home
I’m going home
I’m going home

You can see I didn’t do so good
I’m half as well as I thought I could
The big cities all treat me bad
I’ve gone back to my mom and dad

I’m going home
I’m going home
I’m going home

This runnin’ life has done me wrong
I haven’t eatin’ right for oh so long
Been living a life of hate and pain
Gonna jump up on the next rail train

I’m going home
I’m going home
I’m going home
