Could have been an evergreen So full of promise Flower in the winter Gone before the crocuses Growing at a future Smelling like a summer Withered out from under me Leaving just an empty bed. Wake me in the springtime I'm sick of waiting Itchy feet and hangups I'm suffocating Everything is too good I'm gonna wreck it Gonna make it gonna make it gonna make it gonna make it Cold little hands, heavy eyelids Drooping slowly Dim in the December glow The shift and blink of Lights, yellow, blue Red like months in Sequence always Right in their place In their rhythm Please, don't stop it. Funny how I'm in love As soon as you're not Blow another phone call Playing "guess what": Guess what I'm thinking Guess what we're doing here Guess what? It's over Happy fucking New Year Could have been an evergreen So full of promise Flower in the winter Gone before the crocuses Growing at a future Smelling like a summer Withered out from under me Leaving just an empty bed. Cold little hands, heavy eyelids Drooping slowly Dimming the December glow The shift and blink of Nine months gone by I don't even know you now June and July Could have been All ours But somehow It's halfway through September.

I've got an awful lot of work to do In my phonebook Bring it up to date Got to make sure all my friends are Listed in my phonebook Bring it up to date And you know It's amazing how the names Keep on changing.

In a suit at a desk in a daze at the end of an hour and a half and another twenty minutes of the screen orange screen on the screen watch it flicker spelling words fancy words what is fancy what are words where am I? I am out of order Sorry for the inconvenience Be back soon Thank God you're too cheap to replace me I get up and it's dark I get home and it's even darker night is to morning is to morning is tonight I go to bed there's a buzzing by the bed and it gets me out of bed and it's dark and it's dark when I get home where am I? I am out of order Sorry for the inconvenience Be back soon Thank God you're too cheap to replace me Once I had friends once I had fun once I had life once I had hope once I had hands once I had love once I had mind once I had time once I had me Now I have a job.

about

2020 wasn’t good for much, but being homebound did allow me to sort through 30 years of old recordings, and unarchive tons of shelved and incomplete material.

And then finish that shit!

I am not really interested in doing “albums” anymore… holding music back until a dozen arbitrarily-linked songs are mixed and mastered and the stars and planets align. But at the same time, “singles” are kind of boring and “EPs” demand some degree of cohesion, and I don’t want to be boxed in like that. So here is what I offer you: THREE-PACKS

Remember those randomly-bagged multipacks of comic books they used to sell in toy and drug stores? You wouldn’t be able to see what was inside until you tore open the plastic, and the comics might be brand new or fifteen years old… it was just whatever happened to be laying around when they bundled it up. There was no thematic connection, no rhyme or reason to the collection, and one bag could even contain books from both Marvel AND DC. I was introduced to so many fun stories that way, and that is how I am going to introduce (or reintroduce) you to all of these songs.

This three-pack includes “Halfway Through September” (1999), “‘Reorganizing My Phonebook” (1995) and Dan Book's 2014 remix of “Now I Have A Job” (1998) - all recently completed using a combination of the original recordings and new material. You can read more about each track if you click through to its page.

I’m not promising these three-packs in any regularly-scheduled fashion… and I’m not going to tell you about them in advance. When I feel like one is ready, it will just appear. They may have Skyscape/Hanslick Rebellion/Collider songs on them. All of my records from the past that are not currently available digitally will be represented, as well as material you have never heard, including brand-new stuff. But as far as I’m concerned, all of this music is new to most of the universe - and these are fresh versions of everything anyway, so I hope that in a way it will also be new to you.

Let’s have some fun <3
