The Quack and the Leper

lyrics

we like the damaged ones / the real problems / the fix-me-ups / it's no fun to go numb / when we don't cut up / forge a savior / a false prince / the glass slipper unfilled / dependency catastrophe / the expectations kill / bones crush beneath your venom touch / there's no more / this love has claws / this love has teeth / there is no cure for the morbidly austere / infection spreads the venom seeps / we do the needle poke / the deathbed / prolong the end / the futile habit of belief / that we can make amends / gouge and rip until there's nothing left / tear each other apart / we keep the pulse for fear and loneliness / with barely beating hearts / bones crush beneath your venom touch / there's no more / this love has claws / this love has teeth / there is no cure for the morbidly austere / infection spreads the venom seeps /

from Split 7" with Know Your Saints, released December 18, 2012
insert hype-up descriptors here. Plain and simple, Great Apes are a new punk band from San Francisco. Minimalism reigns. Play it fast, play it loud, and make it stick. While we all have been or are in an array of more complex projects, this band is founded on pop-sensible simplicity and the notion that music, much like a bio, is often at its finest when it’s spit out intensely, with concision and honesty.

In December of 2011 we recorded seven songs at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, CA. The songs are being split out across three 7"s in the spring of 2012. Labels include Say-10, All-In Vinyl, Mission Social Club, and one more to be announced shortly. What you'll find here are streaming versions of one song from each of the upcoming releases.
