Track Name: Listen To The Painters
We need poets, we need painters
we need poets, we need painters
we need poetry and paintings

Narrow minds are weapons
made for mass destruction
file them under giant ass seduction

Sheep with crazy leaders heading for disaster
courting jesters
who take themselves for masters

The shrub
who took himself for a park
the squeak who took himself for a bark

We need poets, we need painters
we need poets, we need painters
we need poetry and paintings

We need
filmers and writers, dancers, musicians
actors and sculptors, bakers, electricians
thinkers and doctors, cyclists, and builders
lovers, friends, and neighbours, and others
filmers, writers, dancers, musicians
poets and painters, poets and painters
Track Name: Scrambled Eggs
Okay, here ya go. Just a couple of notes…
these songs have basic structures (eg. 4 of this, 8 of
that) but any of that can be changed to your liking

It could well be that you find yourself taking a shine
to one particular part in a song
and only want that part repeated ad infinitum
and only want that part repeated ad infinitum
and only want that part repeated ad infinitum
and only want that part repeated…
no problem

These sketches are pretty much two guitars but we
took the liberty to add on some simple percussion
which might aid in making the beats easier to define
for you (and for ourselves for that matter!)

Live, as you can hear, we can play in the regular
Two Pin Din setup of just two electric guitars

Don't mind the cryptic names of our effort, you know
how that goes, we're sure: "Yesterday" by the
Beatles started it's hideous life as "Scrambled
Eggs", apparently a much better title and subject
matter as far as we're concerned…

"Scrambled Eggs…
all my omelets taste like saddlebags…"
but we digress: tell us if the links don't work and
we'll just mail you the songs.
Track Name: Red Muck
Many red devils ran from my heart
and out upon the page
they were so tiny the pen could mash them
they were so tiny the pen could smash them
bash them, crash them, harass them
lash them, slash them, trash them
and many of them little red devils
struggled in the ink
it was strange, it was strange, it was strange
to write in this red muck…
to write in this red muck
of things from my heart

Based on a text by Stephen Crane
(1871-1900), small additions by Mr. S.
