Dishwalla

Dishwalla

Dishwalla’s 1996 platinum debut Pet Your Friends ... included “Counting Blue Cars,” the compelling hit track that would define the band for its more casual fans. “A hit can be a blessing and a curse in the making,” Richards says with a smile. “We had a song so big that it overshadowed everything else we came up with for the next few years. You end up competing with yourself. It’s been a mixed blessing but one that’s helped us to keep working and keep going.” It’s also a song that’s led some to wrongly typecast Dishwalla as everything from a hardcore Christian band to hardcore feminists. For Richards, “It’s been interesting because some people thought we were a Christian band – and yet there’d be Christian groups protesting outside a club because we used `God’ as a feminine pronoun. Ultimately, what we learned is how that song really connected with so many people on such a lyrical level.”
