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: Black Wolf
i saw a black wolf
with swirling sea green eyes
I followed his footprints, on the the snow
Into the dead of night
A still, quiet mind
with no human beings around (round-round-round)

they raise a new flag today
we join hands and turn to walk away

I saw a painting
or maybe it was only a print
it served no purpose
but to fill the space it was in
blood, swelled my hands, and i wept
the violent kids are in town (town-town town)

they raise a new flag today
we join hands and turn to walk away
the brochure, said "bleed on your own"
return, to the earth, your bones

and give my love to them
there’s a face i recall from dream and i wake an i dream it again
it moves, it moves
i feel it move, in my head
Track Name: Tesla Coil Magnet Train
they say the White City bleedin’
I’m just scared of policemen
back door dealer
they don’t really care for the squealers

warm summer nights, drive me insane
tesla coil, magnet train
there, ten feet above the ground

a grey suit and a red tie
big profits from small lies
the latest model
poison in your baby’s bottle

warm summer nights, drive me insane
tesla coil, magnet train
there, ten feet above the ground

ya they’ve really shown their teeth
spineless sycophant beliefs
pick a fight
