about

Little Kim & the Alley Apple 3 play swing music in the broadest sense of the word. They love all kind of old time roots music, be it the sensuous swing jazz of the roaring twenties or the piercing lyrics of the fabulous Hank Williams.

They first met in 2007 when Kim placed an online ad, stating she was looking for a new touring band that played the music styles she loves: jazz, honky tonk, swing, ... By the time Tom responded to her ad, he had already gathered two wonderful musicians to play along: Patrick Cattoir on lapsteel and Selim Meiresonne on slappin' double bass.

They went on rehearsing for a year which resulted in a first self titled EP "Little Kim & the Alley Apple 3" (2008). It got so many good reviews that a lot of concerts in Belgium, France, the Netherlands and Germany followed. Convinced they had something good in hand, they started working on their first full album "Riding the Rails", which hit the streets in 2010.

Not satisfied with the idea that music should be labeled or confined to narrow boxes, they started writing new songs, that were meant to sound totally different to the songs on "Riding the Rails". The writing process was finished in august 2011 and with the help of Kristof Maes of the Closed Session Studio they started the long journey of recording the album. “She’ll keep the devil dancing on your heart” (2012) turned out to be a much more elaborate record than their firstborn. With the bunch of friends they invited to appear as guests on this album they opened to path to a future that is as exciting as it is diverse.

Track Name: Oh Lord!
Oh Lord!

Oh Lord! … Hard times at my door
Oh Lord! … Please don’t knock no more
Oh Lord! … Sing your sad songs and I’ll make you mine
(I’ll) Soften your sharp tongue with dandelion wine

Handcuffed to a bottle I keep near
It don’t lie or cheat, it’s decent and sincere

Oh Lord! … Hard times at my door
Oh Lord! … Please don’t knock no more
Oh Lord! … Sing your sad songs and I’ll make you mine
(I’ll) Soften your sharp tongue with dandelion wine
Track Name: Slappin' Slim
Slappin’ Slim (won’t get his wiggle on)

Hey Hey … Move your lazy feet
Hey Hey … Play that swinging beat
Now move it on, move it on, move it on, move it on …
Hey mister Bull Fiddler move your feet

Hey Hey … Don’t set the pace too slow
Hey Hey … Oh step it up and go
Now move it on, move it on, move it on, move it on …
Hey mister Bull Fiddler don’t go slow

(Hey hey) See that crowd going wild
(Hey hey) We’re just starting to have fun
(Hey hey) Now hey mister Bull Fiddler
(Hey hey) While we’re still young

Hey Hey … Move your lazy feet
Hey Hey … Play that swinging beat
Now move it on, move it on, move it on, move it on …
Hey mister Bull Fiddler move your feet
Track Name: Little Sarah
Little Sarah

Hush now little girl, morning soon will come
So dry your tears and slowly whisper this song

Please Mr Dreamcatcher, won't you keep those demons away
Make 'em dissapear with the light of day

Now with all your troubles gone morning soon will come
Track Name: When Paw Was Courting Maw
When Paw was courtin’ Maw (Jack Manus, Leonard Joy)

Didn't have no airy-planes
Didn't have no streamlined trains
But they had country lanes
When Paw was courtin' Maw.

Didn't have no ritzy bars,
Fancy drinks and caviars,
But they had moon and stars
When Paw was courtin' Maw.

Well, they did have fun … they didn't miss a single husking bee.
Then coming home they'd sneak a kiss, and Paw'd say "Gosh!" and Maw'd say "Gee!"

Most important thing somehow,
And, folks, you will allow,
Love was not the same as now
When Paw was courtin' Maw.








They had no opera at the Met,
Hadn't heard of ... yet,
But oh! that barbershop quartet,
When Paw was courtin' Maw.

That heavy drama cast its spell.
Gosh! how they would clap and yell
When that hero saved our belle,
When Paw was courtin' Maw.

Now they didn't have no commentators or a news broadcast.
They listened on the party line and got the news darn near as fast.

Didn't have electric lights,
Just by lamp they'd spoon each night,
But still in all, they did all right
When Paw was courtin' Maw....










They didn’t ride by motor car
Wasn’t so darn particular
But they’d get every bit as far
When Paw was courtin' Maw...

Now, the movies didn’t talk a thing
Ragtime wasn’t known as swing
But by heck they could fucking wing
When Paw was courtin' Maw...

Now the barn dance was a gay affair … the like you never saw babe
But those folks they had some dare, when they did get the end of the straw

Those were the old fashioned days I guess
Still those folks were all content
Cause in the end yeah she said yes
When Paw was courtin' Maw...
Track Name: All Day & Every Day
All day and everyday

Jonesy Robinson, oh … how you’ve changed
You’re no longer the boy I used to know
The sparkle in your eyes is gone gone gone
Momma warned me this day would come

Remember we slid
Behind the brown old couch
To play … all day … and everyday
We conquered the world in our cardboard boat
Ending up hiding under mom’s dress anyway

Jonesy Robinson, oh … how you’ve changed
You’re no longer the boy I used to know
The sparkle in your eyes is gone gone gone
Momma warned me this day would come
Track Name: She'll Keep the Devil Dancing on your Heart
She’ll keep the devil dancing on your heart

O you might, o you might, o you might as well
Throw your bible down the well
‘Cause she’s a work of art, her spell will tear you apart
And keep the devil dancing on your heart

She’ll take your gold, sell your pearls and wants nothing in between
They call her Two Faced Tawnee of New Orleans
‘Cause she’s a work of art, her spell will tear you apart
And keep the devil dancing on your heart

I don’t know what you’re looking for
But if you need a hand out of this ditch
Better think twice … she’ll pass you like a hat in church
And won’t even give a twitch

O you might, o you might, o you might as well
Throw your bible down the well
‘Cause she’s a work of art, her spell will tear you apart
And keep the devil dancing on your heart
Track Name: I wish I could shimmy like my sister Kate
I wish i could shimmy (1915 – music: Clarence Williams/ words: Armand J. Piron)

I went to a dance with my sister Kate
Everybody there thought she danced so great
I realized a thing or two
When I got wise to something new

When I looked at Kate, she was in a trance
And then I knew it was in her dance
All the boys are going wild
Over sister Katie's style

Oh, I wish I could I shimmy like my sister Kate
She shimmies like a jelly on a plate
My mama wanted to know last night
What makes the boys think Kate's so nice

Now all the boys in the neighborhood
They know that she can shimmy and it's understood
I know that I'm late, but I'll be up-to-date
When I shimmy like my sister Kate
I mean, when I shimmy like my sister Kate

Now I can shimmy like my sister Kate
I know that I'm real late
I think I'll do a real shimmy dance
Dancing like my sister Kate
Sweet papa, just like my sister Kate
Track Name: Rumble in the Parlor
Rumble in the parlor

O there’s a rumble in the parlor of Old man Joe
Everybody gather around, don’t make a sound, don’t make a sound …
There’s a rumble in the parlor of old man Joe
Let’s see who we can find, Who can we find, Who can we find …

Whiskey and women down on the floor
Everybody yelling for more … whoa o

There’s a rumble in the parlor of old man Joe
Everybody gather around, don’t make a sound, don’t make a sound

It changes in the parlor of Old man Joe
Everytime the sun goes down, from miles around, they all come down
It changes in the parlor of Old man Joe
Everytime the sun goes down, in this one horse town, this one horse town

Whiskey and women down on the floor
Everybody yelling for more … whoa o

It changes in the parlor of Old man Joe
Everytime the sun goes down, from miles around, they all come down
Track Name: Blue Heaven
My Blue Heaven (George Whiting & Walter Donaldson)

When whippoorwills call (My pretty Blue Heaven)
And evening is nigh (My pretty Blue Heaven)
I hurry to my … My Blue Heaven (Heaven, Heaven, My Blue Heaven)

A turn to the right (My pretty Blue Heaven)
A little white light (My pretty Blue Heaven)
Will lead me to my … My Blue Heaven (Heaven, Heaven, My Blue Heaven)

I’ll see a smiling face, a fireplace, a cosy room
A little nest that nestles where roses bloom

Just Larry and me (My pretty Blue Heaven)
And baby makes three (My pretty Blue Heaven)
We're happy in my … My Blue Heaven (Heaven, Heaven, My Blue Heaven)
Track Name: Baby, be gentle on me
Baby be gentle on me

I’ll lend you my eyes
And maybe you’ll see
You lift me higher than high
(You) bring me down deeper than the sea

So when you walk away
And say your goodbyes to me
O baby be gentle
O be gentle on me

‘Cause when the sun hits the sea, I know
I’ll be the one you’ll throw away
But there’s still some money in the meter boy
So I hope I’ll hear you say, say

O baby dance with me, laugh with me
Stay a little longer
Cry with me, lie to me
Stay a little longer

Sing to me, hope with me
Stay a little longer
O now baby be gentle on me
