    16-TRACK ALBUM

    This is the first ERMINE COAT album, and the first real set of songs I have written/recorded. Songs about idioglossia, the Nedlands Monster and Terrence Malick, and so on. Anxious proto-pop.

    Apparently the first song is the worst one! Beware!

    Enjoy it in FLAC, 320k mp3, etc for free!

Track Name: Ankles
gazing at your navel-gazing twin
remember
the differences are becoming slim
and ankles
shift and muscles twist
to hold the meaning in
dear andy.

we saw you at the base of the stairs
the air was pretending like it wasn't there
and you kept looking at your shoes
the foxes were lookin' for an excuse.

(solo)
Track Name: Getting Drunk in the Rain
my best friend's ugly sister
took herself down to the lake
this would be her very last mistake.
standing still.

her father buys insurance
to cover his bad heart
sitting in his dead crippled brother's garage.
standing still.

like this.

she was pregnant for six months
but something intervened
when the earth shakes
listen to how it breathes
standing still.

ah.

ooooh.
Track Name: Bruce Springsteen
i
hung out
with bruce springsteen
at a party the other night
he was drinking something that smelled like
cognac and petrol
we
sat in a quiet corner
and talked about born to run
until we realised nebraska was our mutual favourite

he was so kind
he was so nice
will anyone believe me
he wrote his phone number on my arm
but it came off in the rain

i
hung out
with bruce springsteen
at a party the other night
he banged his leg really fucking hard
into the table

i hung out with bruce springsteen
at a party the other night
we
talked about the e-street band
he told me dirty jokes about steve van zandt
there was one that involved a
hooker, a bargepole and a garbage bin

he was so kind
he was so nice
will anyone believe me
he told me to look him up
if i was ever in new jersey

i hung out with bruce springsteen
i hung out with julie christie
i hung out with desmond tutu
i hung out with tony abbott
i hung out with kevin rudd
i hung out with abdul mansaray
i hung out with edie sedgwick
i hung out with andy warhol
i hung out with jesus jones
i hung out with everybody sometimes.
yeah.
