GOLD STAR 500

We did the tracking for the bass and drums september 07 if I recall this correctly (actually I'm wrong, more likely '06 according to Dufficy), in Leon's loungeroom on Petrie tce. A Brisbane share house seeing many a band member pass through it's walls like slime. The Saint's wrote I'm stranded down the way punk fans. Record using 4 track cassette for the first time and realising we probably should have been all along. The guitars, vocals/synths/etc were overdubbed at Helena's house, Vulture st + Mine bedroom aka the lower echelon. These files then sat dormant on a G4 running OS9, our only entry to the protools domain. And there it sat in the back of my mind for years on end. The band had broken up/moved on. other projects dominated timeframes. Who would listen to this record even if we did release it? why release a record that has no active groop to play it's tunage? Then finally, after this year gracing me with 2 hard-drive failures and scattered memories torn between lost forever/rekindled, a resolution was made to mix this belated record down and put the entangled folder structure and poor naming conventions to rest. Mixed and mastered ineptly in an entirely different bedroom for better or worse. Courtesy of the now middle echelon, this record will hopefully bring joy to all astral forms of life. or at least the 4-5 people that kept bugging me to finish this, you know who you are. Thank-you, it's been fun.

Shuriken Brisbane, Australia

5, then 4 kids from Brisbane, ego's and record collections spiraling wildly out of control decide to conquer their own internal logic of indie/rock/art/improv/musick. monumental failure. documents were left behind, wasted gigabytes of files were created + slain. time has no meaning. unlikely to ever be resurrected beyond this digital eulogy. will refrm 4 ATP 10 thou minimum.

Track Name: Clod
I know, there's something coming
It's moving overhead
Seems like, it's got it's reasons, and then it's out of here

Your values, must be contained now, into another age
Seems like these same old reasons, are coming back again

La la la la La la la la La la la la La la la la
Oh that's how they know, it's where you go.

You are a sinking beacon, you are a sturdy clod
Live that are intertwining into a solid block
Scalpel, inscribes a story, onto a cursed page
Seems like these changing reasons, are coming back again

La la la la La la la la La la la la La la la la
Oh that's how they know, it's where you go.

(guitar solo)

Track Name: Batman feeling

Cuz that's what bats do yeah

But I'm making up for lost time

I keep movin'
Until it ends
Never losing

Track Name: Maker
Whistle, and I'll know it's on
You got to get there, from what we are
And none of us, know what we want
This house is golden pink on rut

And you should know, you know, it'll work itself out

Castle spell collapse I can't move this load
The spare munitions are here for rut
And none of us, know what we want
No time to lose and learn amuck

But I know, oh how I know, it'll work itself out

Track Name: Heartskrape
You're taking all of my time, you want to explode
When you gonna lie down, I want to explode
It's wasted such a long time, to get to let go
I've registered it on time, it's time to lay low
Track Name: Ectomorph!
Ectomorph! Ectomorph!

Ectomorph! (ectomorph)

City stretches out in every way
Graveyard filling in a plot that I can't escape
Scared to say with odds like that you're gonna run
Turn away from the traps it made and be spun

Set the scene for another night,
and I'll help you out if we can chase the light
Scared to say with odds like that you're gonna run
Half-awake ghost eyes all shut you've become:

Ectomorph! Ectomorph!

Ectomorph!

Tuning up at a silver grave,
walls are pure and the sand is a musty grey
Scared to say with odds like that you're gonna run
Turn away from the traps it made and be spun

Stars are filling up the night I crave
And it's spilling on my brain like a motorway
Turn away from the traps it made and be spun
Ghost eyes in a heartless hide it's become:

Ectomorph! Ectomorph! Ectomorph! Ectomorph!
Ectomorph! Ectomorph! Ectomorph! Ectomorph! Ectomorph!
Ectomorph
Ectomorph

Track Name: Keysong
You're faking me out with the shrubbery, I know it's time
Sending me straight to another world, greater than mine
Taking apart the inanity, it's a calamity
You need to unwind
You're taking apart every part of me, it's every artery
Buy you're not that kind.

You're not that kind

(guitar solo)

Run away from pain
Run away again
ha ha ha
Run away from way to another world
I need you now.

The second your message appeared on the system
I saw it was too late

She tells you to shut up turn off the computer
It's just a short distance away
Track Name: The platinum door

Track Name: Epsilon
I'm fighting for the cause of our love
But Im much to scared to take off the gloves
It's a paradox you can't explain
When the contractual fire is put out again
Its too many corners, not enough crime
Carrying a case of erase this time
Take me to the place where you stopped
And I'll let you know exactly where I'm speaking of

But up above, an epsilon, a crimson lodge,
A fevered land we made mistakes
It's all we are, try to be kind.
Let's slowly time cripple design
A roadside shrine
From the back of my hand
To the back of your mind, and so we find
A new way to be
A new way to sit back into
An eyesight of the way we see we are.
Track Name: Questchuns
(Leon:) where did you go?
I went somewhere that we both know
(Leon:) what was the plan?
The plan was to escape with the diamonds
(Leon:) who did you see?
I saw some creeps that just got released
(Leon:) what was the plan?
I'm standing where I said I'd be I'd be now go.

Tonight, it's not to late to work for us
Tonight, the spirit traced itself in rust
Tonight, don't just stand there with yer head held back and yer feet unlocking
Cause you're not, and it's the least I could have briefed you on

(Leon:) where did you go?

Good evening

Occupational interest (indecipherable)

Imagine not only having to get blood from a stone but injecting ones own blood into the stone then attempting removal once again

Imagine not only having to get blood from a stone but injecting ones own blood into the stone then attempting said removal once again

That's/That is the experience, at denovans, real, estate.

There's a hole in the wall
There's a hole in the glass
There's a hole in the wall
That was not seen on the videotape

That's the experience
That's the experience
I said that's the experience

That is somewhat similar to the experience at Denovans, real, estate

There's a hole in the wall
There's a hole in the glass
There's a hole in the wall
That was not seen on the videotape

that is somewhat similar to the experience at Denovans, real, estate

That's the experience
That's the experience
I said that's the experience
At Denovans, real, estate

Quit it

Kill it

It's over now
It's over now
We've got our bond back now
It's over now
It's over now
It's over now
It's over now
Shhh
It's over now
We've got our bond back now

So few, and far between
I saw a mood I'd never, seen you in
try, don't, let, go.
current events is all we talk about

can't do with, can't do without momentous seizure of recap/recall

We're in business now
Well we're in business now
Well we're in business now
Well we're in business now
Well we're in business now
Well we're in business now
Well we're in business now
too long, you're too young, it's your fault
that you're too, too young to understand

No time to deal with corners that unkempt with since the last time
Can't deal with unfeasible literature retribution hatstand in your heart
(indecipherable)
Cross this window as I walk away, away not coming thru

We're in business now
Well we're in business now
Sorry it's business now
Well we're in business now
Well we're in business now
Well we're in business now
Well we're in business now

you got to know, from where you've come
and you know it's all wrong
and you're too, you're too young to understand.
Track Name: Freak out
