Undertow 03:39
Make a wish For you and I When you see the first star tonight I had a dream Of you and I And I was wearing a demon's disguise Red's the color Of my eyes tonight Fire and brimstone Comin' down alright I shoulda tried Instead I lied And you believed every word I said If I was true I'd be with you But I'm with the demon instead

Twisted 03:55
He was a good kid Did what the good kids did Collected baseball cards and played Nintendo Liked MC Hammer, He liked the Beach Boys He loved his mama and he loved his papa He did the twist he did the squirm He got all confused about girls He'd pull their hair and pinch the ass Now tell me where the hell did that come from? If your reality's kinda twisted It means you been going 'round in circles And your perception of a twisted That all depends on which side of the tracks your from Got the fever in my finger To destroy some ducks and wizards Flicker flicker, flicker flicker Feel the tension - ooh it's gettin' real thick Do the twist do the crawl What's the value of it all Go to work, go to bed Keep those crazy things out of my head It's allright, it's all cool When will I ever get to use the shit I learned in school I can't remember anything If I live to see it what will tomorrow bring Another day, another night I'm gonna twist with all my might And then spin And then spin And then spin


This 20 song set was compiled by Rich and Glen Mattson long after the band disbanded, sometime around 2005. The recordings are crude, taken from various demo tapes released between 1988 and 1993, which were great and fun years for the band. Many people were asking for these tunes to be released, so here ya go, enjoy!


released May 5, 2005

Recorded by Leo Whitebird, Tim Mac, and Rich Mattson.
