  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    The artwork for this CD was drawn in pencil on a paper bag by Katie Ferreira. The idea was a little world of musical pollution provided by yours truly... or, if you ask some perverse college kids, a subliminal phallus.

    The plan was that they look like little paper-bag cases. In really real life they are sleekly manufactured by New England CD in glossy slimline cases.

This is the earliest recorded version of this song. A more recent version can be found on City Parks After Dark.


I was a wooden house and you were a tornado
As such you did what a tornado ought to naturally do
And how you come as fast as you can certainly go
The wreckage left behind I don’t find half as beautiful

And this is not the way that I intended it to be
But we must not forget how exciting tornadoes can be
Tossing cars and uprooting trees
Without much wait you dissipated, what a mess you left behind

I am some splintered boards, I am the dust of broken remains
The trace of a foundation suddenly been rearranged
Scattered around with bricks and broken glass- all that’s left of my frame
And I sit huddled in the corner with a flashlight

You are here... sort of.

We are natives of New England and currently base our operations out of Athens, GA.

We're part of Nobody's Favorite Records and The Branch Collection: two obscure, amorphous groups of folks who collectively pool our efforts of creativity- primarily those of the musical variety. These monikers give us the appearance of added legitimacy.

We are human.
