|DAWN'S DREAM: by Dawn Z and Wayan; 2.3MB (MP3 + lyrics), 1999/4/1, a rock song telling a dream
My friend Dawn dreamed she crawled into a dumpster to live, and at last felt at home, secure...
|A TOUR OF YOUR BRAIN: by Wayan's brain, 3.4MB (MP3 + lyrics), May 2004, a rock-jig.
A bouncy, lobe-by-lobe musical tour of your brain with Buddha as your tourguide...
|GOD: by Mike Marrelli, 3.4MB (MP3 + lyrics)
God tells all! "I admit I've a split personality..."
|GAIA'S SONG: by Wayan, 2.1MB (MP3 + lyrics), 2002, an old folk ballad on robotics
Gaia appears in a warning vision. However, she's not addressing humanity, but our silver successors...
|PINK EARS: by Mike Marrelli, 2.2MB (MP3 + lyrics)
A sea-chanty mourning how Nic's stuffed bunny fell overboard into San Francisco Bay...
|COYOTE SENT ME CASH!: by Wayan, 3.1MB (MP3 + lyrics), a 2007 jazz-rap telling a 1982/10/11 psychic dream.
A true tale proving the Trickster God really will provide. We're lilies of the field!
|I WANNA BE: by Mike Marrelli, 3.25MB (MP3 + lyrics)
Tell me--what's your secret desire? Now... can you act on it?
SONGS IN PROGRESS
WHO ARE WE?
A San Francisco-based trio of singer-songwriters. Many of our songs come from dreams. Most have three-part harmonies. Some have accordion. Only one has quacking.
WHAT SORT OF MUSIC DO WE PLAY?
We serve the song: each gets the style it needs. Having a signature sound or style restricts a band and betrays the music. We aim for powerful tunes, harmonies, moods, lyrics and stories. Of course, an obsession with quality could itself be labeled a style--but it hasn't yet. We do think a new musical model is brewing here in the Bay Area--polycultural, politically radical, complex, varied, highly personal but respecting the audience--accessible. But this movement is still nameless. Perhaps, at this stage, it needs to be.
WHO IS GOD?
The Beatles, Beethoven and Frank Zappa.

WILL WE PLAY FOR YOU?
Krelkins are strange beings I keep meeting in my dreams--something like maned, horse-tailed herbivorous greyhounds, or hornless deer-sized unicorns... with opposable thumbs and huge brains. On rare occasions, I've dreamt I am one, a wonderful experience, since Krelkins enjoy life: amiable, sensual, humorous and highly intelligent. Like human shamans, they like to roam between realities. They're not Club Med-type tourists, either--they'll explore bizarre, backward places. They'll even come here.
Anyway, the other band members liked the strangeness of the name--we're not gonna get mistaken for anyone else. Since no one else can spell it.
