  • 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.

about

"police come" is the name of an old american folk song about resisting the law at your door. this is my adaptation, resisting the law grown into your child's heart, forced into your small mouth.

lyrics

police come plainclothed
to take me down
wait on every corner in this town
to take me down
treat you like a sickness
don’t they now?

how much homelessness
can the heart bear?
how much homelessness
can the heart bear?
I’ve made mistakes and I’m sorry—

fuckers got their pain, they bear it out
barcode in my brain, I’m overwhelm
price put on your head, now
out your mouth
don’t out yourself

how much headlessness
can the heart bear?
how much headlessness
can the heart bear?
you know I’ve made mistakes
and I’m sorry!

it came out of the Ground
through our Mouth and into our Body
and all I’ve got’s the lexicon of power
for to twist and stab at the Statue

and where, kind child
will you build your house?
come now, dear soul
put the Coal to your Mouth
come out of your Body and
into the Ground!

police come in pillform
down my throat
come into my brain, you devilgoat
come down my throat
treat me like a sickness, grip and grope
then down my throat
