about

8-bit crEEps Chicago, Illinois

Syd Barrett singing happy birthday to David Byrne.
Psych-Wave.

Inspired by a lone, nameless man. His dilated pupils are equal parts apathy and anxiety.
The square-wave soundtrack was a worm in his brain.

The dimly lit Chicago arcades he would frequent left strange impressions on young minds. This is where you'll find those impressions.

This music scene is giving us the crEEps.

Track Name: New Zoo
get yourself down to the store, before they run out
put the batteries in the flashlight, because it's getting dark
what to do when they come for you? it's gettin' better
old queen with the green ring, his name is mary

don't forget to get a souvenir, so i can remember
look up my skirt for what it's worth, so you can be enlightened
i heard the baby crying, it's so heavy
new king with a red ring, her name is edward

ooooooohhhyeeeeeeah

in the new zoo what you do doesn't really matter
shake your cage, break your chains you destructive little mammals
i see the water rising above the islands
doesn't matter to skeletons who died smiling

ooooooohhhyeeeeeeah
Track Name: Take Your Vitamins
wake up the dead
i think that's the plan
i'd like some coffee
believe that was said

i kamikaze
in bed with you
they lockin' their doors
but what does it do?

heads out the window
wild dogs in the night
branches are bending
i think we're alright

take off your shirt kid
and show me what you got
did you take your vitamins
in the car where you got caught
with a girl who's still in high school
in a theater parking lot
theater parking lot

it's halloween
beneath evergreen trees
we dress up like ghosts now
what does it mean

orange moon rising
isn't it strange
we're locking our doors now
i wonder what changed

take off your shirt kid
and show me what you got
did you take your vitamins
in the car where you got caught
with a girl who's still in high school
in a theater parking lot
theater parking lot

show me what you got
oh chicago, show me what you got
