A song about generalized obliviousness and taking appendages for granted. [more inside]
The Olivers are on some rough seas right now, but here's something to guide us all to better shores. [more inside]
Recorded with lots of bleed to 2" analog tape in a very cold studio in an old barn upstate New York (and vocals, keys and other overdubs done in a warmer environment back in NYC), this is a song about fan culture in the internet age. Sorta. And fun. [more inside]
In the grand tradition of rock and roll waltzes, I bring you Angel Waltz.
"Oh, yeah! You're a sucker!" "Works everytime!" "Let the other ones talk!" Though it's not the subject of the lyrics, this song always seemed somewhat appropriate to MetaTalk to me. I've been meaning to upload it since Mefi Music came together, but little things here and there seemed to always get in the way. The incarnation of the band that recorded this swiftly broke up later that same year. We've all gone on to other bands. Anyhow, here it is now. The year: 2002. The band: Knife Skills. The method: Tascam 4-track. The location: A & D's concrete wall, shed/apartment in Brooklyn, NY. The safetyfork: Bass.
This is a tune from a 1995 release called "Samm Bennett's History of the Last Five Minutes", from the Knitting Factory label. The CD is currently out of print. The guitarist is Hahn Rowe, everything else is me. I've been thinking about re-releasing this and possibly my earlier KF CDs on my own label (Yay! Rights have reverted back to yours truly!) but I've got a bunch of new songs I wanna release first. Thought I'd just throw this one out there into the ether. Anyway, [lyrics inside] and, hope you enjoy...
This snappy little track is from my band DIVISION OF PLANES.
