dum dum girls - are you ok
wartime - graffiti dogs (ku ku)
“last year a very close friend of mine committed suicide. graffiti dogs (ku ku) was written and recorded in the days that followed his gruesome exit. there is no concept or theme around this cassette only that i was touching upon the feelings that emerged; sadness, adoration, remorse, and even disgust. for several agonizing weeks i lived in a hypersensitive haze. several of these songs contain snippets or entire poems that were written specifically for a book chachi, brandon welchez and i were in the middle of designing. it was going to be another triumphant installment in our diy chapbook collection; perverted odes to love’s lascivious nature. the book was to be titled “funny cunts.” personally, i feel like the sounds and ideas on graffiti dogs (ku ku) have taken seven years to come to fruition. this tape was written solely for the purpose of helping me cope with my close friend’s death. his spirit lives on. i am certain.”
