  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Originally recorded to 1/4" tape, this analog record features stripped down guitar-and-vocal folk arrangements of the album Necrobisect. Due to the time constraints of the medium, the song "Indiana" is not included on the record. The packaging includes an art card insert with a download code for the digital album, streamed here, featuring more elaborate arrangements built around the original tape recording. My hope in writing Necrobisect was that it could be enjoyed two ways, in the sparse intimacy of an analog medium as well as in the exuberant, somewhat haphazard framework of found-sound collage and electro-rock'n'roll.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Necrobisect via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

  • Poster/Print + Digital Album

    Well wouldn't you just love this full bleed glossy B&W heavy stock 11 1/2" x 11 12" art card to hang on your wall? Featuring the iconic Necrobisect text "it came out of the ground, through our mouth and into our body" in awkward script over an intriguingly dead couple, this is the perfect conversation piece for impressing a date or graduate student. Full lyrics, album download code, and tasty bits of gossip included on the reverse side.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Necrobisect via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

lyrics

ah you party boys
you good ol’ party boys
with your overwrought bisection
in a two-party erection,
protect your colorful confections
with an entire
department of corrections
ah you pithy, poignant, petty
party boys

now you’re down at the party place
don’t you know it’s party time
and you wear that party face
and you do that party line
glad-handing party-coy
you puppet-party-toy
don’t you know there is only one Party
you pretty party boys

I sing hell with the tacky smile
hell with the quick fix
hell with the platforms
hell with the sweet perfume you piss
hell with your siren sound
I am the Siren now
boozing fools on a party cruise
I fully intend to take you down

ah you party boys!
you precious party boys
how you gather in the glade
to shade this
cheap facade you’ve made
in all God’s Country you’ve surveyed
(sipping vodka-lemonade)
you got a videogame for a brain
where you play me
who will not be played
oh you pithy, poignant,
good ol’ party boys
hell with your party shirt
hell with your dental work
hell with your limp peg
fucking hell
with the tail between your legs
hell with your serpent cum
I am the Serpent’s Tongue
I’ll cut a platitude in half
for every jizzy tune you hum

I sing hell with your death toll
hell your remote control
hell with your figurehead
hell with your World Wide Web
fucking diddle of a mid-life
I am the Little Death
I come to titillate your middle
with a song of a scythe

I sing hell with your pipeline
hell with your gunchime
I ain’t impressed with your tar sands
ain’t arrested by the size of your hands
fucking hell with your funny bone
I am the Devil’s Tone
blowing ditties from your whistle
mouthing missives in your gristle

I sing blessed are the cocksick,
bullshat, motherfucked
blessed are the wardead
bluelipped, upchucked
blessed those mined for their guts
and tossed out in a heap
blessed all nonverbal
blessed those with skin disease

blessed are the Godless
blessed are the Meek
blessed are the digitless,
paperless, wireless, toothless
blessed all internally displaced
blessed every casualty
of your nation state
