Simple Cathartics

from 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 /

Great Apes San Francisco, California

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.
