Based on a dream by Kevin Higginbotham, "Timmy Reed" explores the illogic of the dream world. In this case, the dream is lovely, with Lou Reed and Tim Duncan both men who worked incredibly hard in their fields giving sage advice and encouragement. Lou/Tim is 100% positive in his staunch acceptance. Here, if you have a question, the answer is "yes."


TIMMY REED (sanden and reyes)
i had a dream where lou reed came to me
he said son why you so down in the mouth?
what you so sad about?
i said lou i feel bad so bad that every time
i open my mouth the voice of lou reed came out
he said huh? that’s my voice but you can borrow it if you want it
if you need it
lou reed lou reed and me
and i continued to dream and somehow lou reed got spliced with tim duncan’s head
with impossibly big brown sad sad eyes and a big jewish fro way up on high
timmy reed timmy reed and me
you might be asking what does it mean?
i say well it beats me
but it’s two soldiers coming back to say yes
“you wanna know is it ok if you don’t rhyme quite right? YES
is it ok if you don’t paragraph your letters? YES OF COURSE
is it ok to wear nail polish or not wear polish?
sweetcakes OF COURSE YES
you can do just exactly what you want to YES”*

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.

Or John Cale tossing his car keys to Neil Young. ... more
