Split 7" with Daikon

by Great Apes

Chicago back in '02 / sky swelling black and blue / still drunk from the night before / I woke up on the bedroom floor / lit a smoke and hit the street / sweat electric in the summer heat / Logan Square sticking to the skin / when the clouds broke I was born again / she was a stranger / I didn't know her name / we sat there together with our arms up in the rain / I believe in love and possibility / her eyes were music and her laugh was poetry / Stinson Beach back '98 / it was one a.m. when we hopped the gate / our feet buried in the winter sand / talking shit about future plans / jagged hope and getting high / staring up into a star-freckled sky / kinetic night pulling at me / I dove naked into the begging sea / with the cold black chaos swirling all around / I went floating calmly / I became unwound / I believe in wild grace / and constant energy / I was just a word in the waves howled poetry / Washington just last week / in the woods beneath the snowy peaks / three friends running in the trees / made young by company / tumbling down cliff-edge dunes / new ideas and the harvest moon / stick and poke to commemorate / Staples in my skin to mark the date / I believe in love and possibility / I believe in the binding tie / connectivity / the song of life should be a bit sloppy and full of honesty / if you play it loud and make it stick I'll hit that harmony /
she blew in from Boston / she came with the snow / familiar sister / the burning high to the low/ she had brains / and a penchant for booze / burnt out and flickering / we were the fuse / you gotta go / we get it / run the wires / leave the current on / it flows / so don't clip it / we need that shock kick / when you're away and gone / we did some time in Chicago / before we threw our cords in the Bay / better off as just friends / the circuits ran better that way / we stayed tight / a radiant bind / now she's off to Austin / to run some more volts through her mind / without her around we're gonna shut down

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.

Insert hype-up descriptors here. Plain and simple, San Francisco's Great Apes are a lyrical punk band. Music, much like a bio, is often at its best when it’s spit out intensely and quickly, with concision and honesty.
