PHOTO: Somewhere in Arizona, on our only tour

LA MANO, SF, ca. 1992-1993
After the Plumber debacle, I needed a quick and dirty outlet for my frustrations. A friend of mine had a friend who had keys to Wally Heider's studio, and he offered to produce a late-night single for me. I enlisted Lloyd, a friend from work, and Mike the psychiatrist drummer from Wonder Merriment, wrote two songs, and two weeks later we had a record. This is it. We continued after the session, recorded a full length lo-fi album called "Rope," and toured Arizona before disbanding. There's photos of it.

Track Name: This Grope
She asks
How do I lie
Is it with hallelujah, I
Always tell the side of truth that I have
Made
Mine
And how have I lain
The times you've watched without my knowing?

This grope
This pretense to know
This mania to know
This unsatisfied lust
To know

My brothers
My sisters
We are orphaned
All is lifted away
Hope
Hope
Soon we all may sleep in sacred
Soon we all may sleep in sacred

This grope
This pretense to know
This mania to know
This unsatisfied lust
To know

Soon we all may sleep in sacred
Soon we all may sleep in sacred
Soon we all may sleep in sacred
Peace
