about

two songs in one. in the first, a flamenco guitar rips a tribute to a Kurt Cobain, one of the few that could write an unforgettable melody. the second turns toward the ache.

lyrics

LITTLE BLONDE BOY (FOR KURT COBAIN) (sanden)
little blonde boy so fragile with a stomach ache
in spite of the fact that you wore a cherub’s face
“blue blue the color of a lonely heart”*
do you feel blue?
they were so dumb that they practically drooled
i’m sorry your family was so cruel
although this song is a formal tragedy
there is an uplift in the penultimate part
with no hand hold to seize
yer lousy family
but the rest of us could feel yer pain
and sing along with the refrain: uh huh uh huh
slipping down the muddy banks a cloudless ceiling
rustling on the forest floor god’s own great feelings
scrawling in the notebook page the ink is sinking
yer heart doth beat a kick a snare but no one is winking
push it down your stomach churns yer on yer own level
gathered fans of lesser bands the world’s a blood vessel
squinting against the tuners glare no room to play
the courage comes but it’s much too late

*from “Color of a Lonely Heart Is Blue” by the Old 97’s

about

demitasse Texas

Demitasse (pronounced “DEHmee-toss”) is a two piece acoustic group. It is the side project for Erik Sanden and Joe Reyes of the Texas art rock band Buttercup. Mixing melody, spoken word, and noise, the sound is somewhere between Simon and Garfunkel, Leonard Cohen, and the Beach Boys on a dark day. Or Elliott Smith on an extremely bright, sunny day. Or John Cale tossing his car keys to Neil Young. ... more
