Parcel Pickup

“Parcel Pickup” is the 6th track on the Flashbacks album, a tribute to my first job as a grocery store employee. 

I started working part-time at Sobeys during the summer of 1988 between my first and second year at SMU in Halifax.

Remember the big red bins and rollers that transported them to a loading area for pickup? Back when customer service was still a thing...

The lyrics recall the trials and tribulations of a typical shift of the never ending busyness of the front-end: hours full of price checks, spills, jar piles of carts and  ultimately bin screw ups.

Peach on a beach (Larry Peach) is an emerging singer-songwriter and synth player creating nostalgic vibes. Influenced by 80s new wave and hip hop, 90s dance and comedy rock, Peach on a beach is recording several singles prior to the release of his upcoming album called Flashbacks.
