This book and album are meant to perform publicly a private confrontation and catharsis of fear, sometimes powerfully, sometimes on its hands and knees—in hope of seeing seductive mystery in the unknown, and to turn fear into a tool. The words offered have been carefully shaped like knives—sharpened by humor and tempered by the urgency of mortality, with the sharpest ones brought to you in a soft melodic sheath… tools not for violence, but to cut away disillusionment and the unnecessary. On days one needs to cut loose, it hopes to be a book of pocket knives. And, in a more substantial moment, “A long curved blade in the hand of a sweetheart”. On days one needs to cut loose, it hopes to be a book of pocket knives. And, in a more substantial moment, “A long curved blade in the hand of a sweetheart”. ...Or, at least, a good swift kick in the butt from a friend that wants to see you be true. Dimensions: 7” vinyl, booklet Materials: Softcover book, vinyl album
