I Wanna Date Yer Dogg

The Accusatory Egg

Um. Where do I start? These are two more things that were made at Jonathan Grossman’s place. The name for this “side-project” came to me one night when I was super-high, sitting in my car trying to work up the composure to drive the few blocks home. (I know, I know, I know that this is not a good idea. That was then.) Something happened and I exclaimed “Jesus, hell!” Playing the age-old game of “What kind of band would that be?”, I immediately decided that it should be an industrial-death metal band. Not really knowing what that means, or much caring.

So, these two songs were born of that divine revelation. “I Wanna Date Yer Dogg” was the first one. “The Accusatory Egg” came out of another funny story. My roommate, Captain Sunshine, had recently broken up with his girlfriend. One morning, shortly thereafter, I came out, half-asleep, onto our back porch and found on the ground a paper plate with a fried egg, and, in what looked like dried blood, the word “accusatory” written on it. For several months its meaning and origin remained a mystery, until we found out that the ex-girlfriend and her friends, in a fit of rage, were going to egg our house, but decided that was too mean. So, they fried up an egg, and, just in case we didn’t get it, wrote “accusatory” on the plate in ketchup. How do you not write a song about that?

Somewhere in the back of my mind is the idea to write a whole album of these songs with strict guidelines. All under two minutes, and all with some completely incongruous breakdown stuck right in the middle. We’ll see.
