Sometimes music works better than words.

I will wat for you in the green, green spaces,
Wearing our post-industrial faces.
Side by side sit the trashpile twin,
And the eleventh century center of the Misissippian,
With the calender of the sun,
A people undone.

Ceremonial mounds in the backyards and towns,
That’s the way it runed out.
A city built up on the other great mound torn down,
That’s the way it happened.
A culture on the run,
They vanished in the sun,
The Mississippian.

Forward and on we go,
Building our mounds out of control,
Full of our finest throw away things.
The new Mississippians,
Under a smog choked sun,
Waiting to be undone.

I had a fun shoot today with the Blue and the Grey.  I know you will ask, so the masked guy finds a different way to conceal his identity for band appearances.Tonight, it was a tribal mask.

A special thanks to the wonderful staff at WRIR for having us play during their Spring Fund Drive. It was awesome!

For more goofy masks, pyrotechnics and good tunes, come out March 20th at 5pm at Hardywood Brewery where we’ll be playing along side Boston country rock sensation Cask Mouse, and barrels of delicious fresh released Baltic Porter!
