have you ever woken up to the smell of a smoking gun? have you ever laughed in the face some of somebody laughing at you? be not supervised while listening. take the risk into your own hands. be somebody or be somebody’s fool. if you’re not now, you never were. “the past and the future are really not all that different.” – brian s. ellis (kind of like kerouac)
Grab a cup of mead, some energy crystals and huddle up next to your favorite goat for this festival of somber merriment. Two Voices is the finest coalescence of astral rock and renaissance folk by two modern day bards, Greg Sun (Manners) and Chris North (The Points North). This poppy lo-fi carousel weaves acoustic guitars through a meadow of instruments including flute, accordion, violin and cello, wrapping it all up nicely with magnetic tape at varying speeds.
Released on CD-R in chipboard sleeves with artwork by Greg Sun and Lenora Symczak
Crops is a recycling bin that splices together bits of music, spoken word, poetry from Brian S. Ellis and songs of Manners and Atomfoam. Sometimes tense and cacophonous, other times sparse and symphonious, this tape was made to be listened to with headphones – so grab your walkman and go.

much like the first thanksgiving. grab a chunk of this, some cornbread, a turkey leg, cranberry sauce. yum! live recordings from the ‘peace, loving’ band. get together with your bud, give it a spin, see where it takes you. see where it has taken others before you. untitled banjos, chimaxes, smell-0-vision, anthems for a simple pilgrim.
