about

The second in a series of monthly demo recordings released to benefit political projects. All the proceeds from this month's song goes to the Rainbow Defense Fund, a group in Arizona that bails LGBT folks out of immigration detention. Find out more about them, and donate additional money to them directly, at mariposassinfronteras.org

Live recording of a split-song with the genius rapper and folk singer, Ceschi Ramos (he rules, look him up). This song will be on a split 12" vinyl-only release we are putting on later this year on the DIY Bandits label. Recorded by Danielle at Negi Negi in Worcester, MA on October 12, 2014--thanks.

September demo is now pay-what-you-want. Thanks to everyone who supported last month's demo. And if you haven't yet, you still can!

lyrics

lyrics:

(PAT) Termites are eating my home, and squirrells laugh at me through the walls. I hate to admit it, but most days I wake up and follow the laws. I used to dream my beliefs would lead me onto barricades with molotovs, but mostly they lead me straight to a line at the post office to send zines to someone behind bars. (CESCHI) This city is killing me. I’m pretty sure New Haven PD wants all of my friends to go down. I walk down to Whaley and think of my fellow felons sleeping on overcrowded room grounds. My girlfriend can’t handle the life that I lead. I sleep on couches, play shows for twenty kids, hoping they’ll house me. (PAT) Some just talk a good game—I can’t even do that. Some just want to look cool—-I don’t even wear black. Some just want an excuse for crime and destruction. I’m too afraid to shoplift, because last time I got busted. (CESCHI) I can promise you this, Officer Smith: you don’t need to piss-test me or re-arrest me. I’m just playing these shows, I’m a law-abiding citizen. Please give me my license back. I no longer sell crack. I’m just 33, rapping, broke, trying my hardest to cope on the road. Almost all of my homies know that.
