Brother 'Hood

South Philly produces more than just mobsters

"That's a true story, man," Serge says of the last tune. "That's a perfect case of life imitating art. I wrote the song first; then within two weeks we found this place -- we're big fisherman, but we have to travel to fish, 'cause there's not too many places to go in the city. But the Delaware River runs right through it, and we found a pier right on the river that you can catch catfish from. It's right by a major highway in the city. There are nightclubs and a Wal-Mart right there. And there are all kinds of Vietnamese people and black people and Hispanic people fishing. You can't necessarily speak everyone's language, but everybody gets along. Everybody's there for one reason -- to fish for catfish. It's a cool thing that brings everybody together."

The brothers do not, however, have a buddy who once caught a human head, as the song reports.

"Not yet, anyway" Dave says.

Marah's Dave Bielanko says, "Phil Spector, ┬ĘBorn to Run'  --  those are the kinds of things we like to listen to. If you can even do a minor-league version of what those people have done, you've accomplished something."

Marah opens for Gov't Mule at Mississippi Nights on April 8.
