Last Hurrah 02:36
It wasn't quicksand it was only mud.. But still it went way down deep Goin' home with stinking feet The last hurrah and isn't it sweet? Taste it twice when you're on your knees...
Vacate 02:49
Gonna take a little vacation out west Gonna kick over a rattlesnake nest Gonna meet some new people there Gonna find out that they're the same everywhere But surroundings differ And drinks are stiffer Bars are open later Gonna meet Darth Vader...
Figured Out 02:54
Just 'coz I got a hundred bucks don't mean I gotta buy something big Just 'coz you got a lotta love don't mean you gotta give it to me
A long time ago in a galaxy far far away a whole lot of nothing took place We sat on our asses, made drinks in tall glasses and waited for the girls to show up Oh just nothing would happen we'd be kicked back and slackin' we couldn't have had any cares What would become of those teenage rebellions that never ever even came close?
Tumbellina 01:57
Slipping on the scratchy surface Hit the bottom scratches the face Twirling, swirling 'round the pylon Ballerina who's the eyes on Tumbellina she can't make it Tumbellina she can't fake it Falling, pacing, yellow laces following her heels Her auto's rusted floorboard sinks And in her helpless mind she thinks Of days to come, not days gone by She's a woman and she never cries Tumbellina's forced to face it Tumbellina's mind can't brace it It rings above the sounds of hate that whisper from the streets Oh and Tumbellina somewhere in there something's pretty Oh and how Tumbellina helps herself without the city Out of the helpless life she holds A grandparent is growing old She thinks about the days gone by and slowly starts to cry
Make a Wish 03:37
It don't make no sense? Try making a wish Try watching the moon Try counting the stars You are never far from where you started
Real Friends 01:50
Clingy 02:56
No way in hell I'll ever be sleepin' When I know what kind of banana bread you'll be bringin'
Sleepers 02:25
Drummer faces, sad embraces Peek a boo, I can see you Lost at the market The car where'd you park it? When everyone's leavin' I'm gonna get even
Desolation underground Destination somewhere 'round here I only needed you When I needed to Cry on your shoulder I'm so much older now
Fire at night Oh such a sight Kind of eerie in my mind Don't know what you might find In the dark up on the hill There's a fire burning out of control In the dark- What a thrill!


This is the Glenrustles' third album, released on SMA Records in November of 1997. The Glenrustles began as a folk-rock group in 1988 in Minneapolis MN. Within a few years they turned into fierce LSD gobbling rockers, headlining twin cities venues such as the 7th Street Entry, the Uptown Bar, and the 400. "Fire At Night" was recorded in the midst of personnel changes within the band, most notably the return of drummer Glen Mattson, and the departure of clown prince guitarist Jim Kennedy. This is considered by many, including band leader Rich Mattson, to be their finest album.

The Glenrustles were a great drunken rock and roll band in the late 80's - 90's Minneapolis music/drinking/tripping scene featuring the two heavy-footed Iron Range brothers Rich and Glen Mattson, singer/songwriter/guitarist and drumber (sic), respectively along with comedian-at-large (also from the Range) Jim Kennedy and bassist Russell Bergum, who was later replaced by Mpls' own Greg McAloon. ... more
