A few years back, Jersey Shore singer-songwriter Tom Costello released a very impressive song on a solo EP.
Now “Fighting in Philly” has been re-recorded for his relatively new band, Tom Costello and the Turnaround, as a single that is the Makin Waves Song of the Week.
As the Makin Waves Song of the Week, “Fighting in Philly” also can be heard between 6 and 8 p.m. on July 28 on “Radio Jersey” at ThePenguinRocks.com. If you miss it, you can tune in any time in the archives at The Penguinand Mixcloud.
“I wrote this one a few years back and released it as part of a solo EP in early 2020,” Tom said. “It's loosely based on a short story of the same name from a book called ‘Rope Burns’ by FX Toole. Since The Turnaround had formed, it came up as an idea to include it in a setlist for a show, and from there, we breathed new life into it. It's now become a regular in our setlist, and we wanted to capture that live energy on record. We recorded this back in January at Retromedia Sound Studio in Red Bank with Adam Vaccarelli.”
