Spine (1998)

Appleseed Recordings. CD

All acoustic. Recorded by Steve Albini, with no overdubs or processing (OK, he used a little equalization on one track ...). London's Sunday Observer calls it "bone-gleamingly pure", and CMJ New Music Monthly says "dazzling exuberance". "Folk music for the Sonic Youth crowd."Liner Notes (PDF)

Dark Beloved Cloud Singles Club EP(2003)

Jane, Promise, Closing Year. Jane, an acoustic outtake from Spine, is a traditional song from upstate New York. Promise is an original by Tim that we have rarely performed. Tim says, I wrote the music for Promise in India in 1988, but made new words after hearing on the radio, back to back, Marilyn Manson and Melissa Etheridge's Little Secret. The latter seemed like a much more credible threat.Closing Year is a rock song outtake from the Chicago sessions for What It Is. Tim made up the music to fit some old words from two mid-19th century sources, one a secular song for kids and the last two verses from a hymn by Doddridge. Tim says, I was interested in the ideas of time and decay in both texts, especially the less than cheerful one from the children's book. Clearly not a modern text.

This single is available by joining the Dark Beloved Cloud Singles Club (www.darkbelovedcloud.com), or by sending us $5, or for free by ordering two or more CDs from us (while supplies last).
