about

Behold! The first-ever release from Squid Knights!

This is a demo recorded one Saturday in the basement that we call home. As such, these songs have changed (slightly) since recording. This demo exists solely to give you, our newest fan, an idea of just how we sound. Big credit goes to Evan Bourgault for recording this for us. All of the tracks were recorded with a single mic, so some of the levels are a bit (read: a large bit) unbalanced. All tracks written by Squid Knights with lyrics by Jeremy Menninger unless noted otherwise.

ONE LAST THING: these recordings are transcoded (don't hate us, audiophiles!). Some day I'll get lossless masters from Evan and re-upload them (if I can), but for now, understand that if you look at this in a spectrum analyzer it will in fact NOT be lossless.

Track Name: Arielle
Coming soon! No really!
Track Name: Dan (Part I: Hockey)
Dan
Loves to watch hockey
But he doesn't wanna watch it with me
He
Will sit alone tonight
And cross his fingers for a fight
He doesn't want any beer
I even offered it to him for free
His social habits are just queer
Or maybe he just doesn't like me

Dan
Where did I go astray?
All I wanted to do was watch a game one day
The Stanley Cup's ahead and I'm sure you'll say
You'd so much rather do things in your own strange way

We all know that the Bruins won
Both teams played extremely well
You couldn't have had nearly as much fun
Than if your old traditions had failed
Track Name: Disenchanted
Coming soon! No really!
Track Name: Sun Ain't Shinin'
Coming soon! No really!
Track Name: Good Queen Bess
Stares have never been this happy;
I let my legs hang free.
I fucked up once, you fucked up twice…
And silence would be nice

I am the echo of that whisper from the words I never said
And I am the etcher and his blister from the notes you never read
Blue skies have yet to see so many storms, and its all your fault
But the trees are dead, and no one leaves no one gets out alive

I’m like a dinosaur on top…My life is like Jurassic Park
I’m like a dinosaur on top…My life is like Jurassic Park

So I will run from nothing, to places I cannot see.
And never will I swim in the ocean because I hate doing laundry
For once you are anything but something, something for me
It’s the hope in hand that makes my nothing sweet



Stares have never been this happy;
I let my legs hang free.
I fucked up once, you fucked up twice
And silence would be nice



So this was our test;
I did it for less
I’m off to find the peaceful girl:
My good queen Bess.
Track Name: Dan (Part II: The End)
Dan is leaving the band
I thought he was my friend.
Now, I’m gonna cry.
Or sing a lullabye
Bye
Dan is leaving the band
The end
Dan is gone again, the end
Dan is gone again, the end
Dan is gone again, the end.
Whoa-oh
Whoa-oh

He said he wouldn’t leave.
Man is he a tease.
So we said farewell.
But how can this be fair? Well
Dan is leaving the band
The end
Dan is gone again, the end
Dan is gone again, the end
Dan is gone again, the end.
Whoa-oh
Whoa-oh
