Another Mother Goose rhyme, creepy as any. A nod and a wink and a tip of the top-hat to The Residents with Molly Harvey


There was a man in our town
And he was wond’rous wise
There was a man in our town

He jumped into a bramble-bush
jumped into a bramble-bush

And scratch’d out both his eyes
There was a man in our town

And when he saw his eyes were out
With all his might and main
And when he saw his eyes were out

He jump’d into another bush
Jump’d into another bush

And scratch’d them in again
There was a man in our town

Our music always starts as impromptu sketches. Sometimes we embellish them by mixing and matching clips or by adding found- sounds. Lyrical content comes from out-of-context dialog of many diverse sources.
