rachaelpollard mid-nineties Chicago flavorings. Not the band "Chicago" but rather the scene in the mid-nineties that the young people was a-doing, before it was called indie, it was ... I dunno, just that "chicago sound" to me. Wonderful! Teacup Gorilla, take me away :)

Chris Bates First saw Teacup Gorilla at the Underground Music Showcase, I think the energy from the live show translates into the studio seamlessly. Favorite track: Just Like That.

Last Bullet 05:22
Oh won't you leave that side door open I've been on this road so long I want to know I got some place I still belong and that you ain't moving on If you will leave that downstairs light on I promise not to come undone shot my last bullet somewhere on the run and I could not reload my gun
If you're gonna dance for war You're gonna dance for sure And if you're gonna dance for peace You will never cease And if you're gonna dance for war You're gonna dance for sure But if you're gonna dance for peace Dance just like this Just like — Just like that Just like that Together we lie In this city of broken walls Pie tins and power lines We'll live to dance again
My pillow leans on the window sill. Autumn frost on the window still. And i'm not ready to go (yet). I turn the lights out, but lie awake for hours. Street lamps cast shadows across my bed. I trace them with a finger and look down at Sam. Good for you, I whisper. I'm not ready to go. (This whiskey in my hand) I'm not ready to go. (Always time in the cracks to kill)
Suicide Note 05:39
In the morning when she gets up I like to roll over, bury my face in her pillow, my self in her sheets, and this will not work well if she leaves before I
Pig Sez 06:29
Jolene asks for a story as they lie in bed, but Jenny can't think of anything, so she mentions the possibility of a butterfly named George Wilma Henry Algelina Phillips the Third. And Jolene thinks maybe it's a giant butterfly to hold all those names, or a walrus disguised as a butterfly. And Jenny says it is, and it puts on the wings at night to go out on the town with other butterfly walruses like itself. This fence keeps you in your world
