Without Love, Life Has no Poetry in it “A greater fear than death grips you whenever you are in love. That’s why love has disappeared from the world. Rarely, very rarely does the phenomenon happen that love descends. What you call love is just a false coin: you have invented it because it is so difficult to live without love. It is difficult because without love, life carries no...
I have to confess, I’ve made my bed Now I’ll sleep in it, alone. I’m going to have bad dreams… Captains of Industry, It’s time to sail the Seven Seas. You should think twice… Sweet, sweet, sweet Kerosene, A lonely light walks with me To make a mess and have a blast. Well, I have to confess: I made my bed, Now I’ll sleep in it,alone, But I’ll have bad dreams Like the bottom of...
your love is a pawnshop
Your love is a pawnshop And everything in it is used: A faded magazine rack, a worn pair of shoes, A leather valise, A bag of old, beaten blues And that dress… I bet it looks nice on you. Let’s go for a dance in the back. Let’s light those kerosene rags And we’ll spin ‘round & ‘round the fire Like the jukebox is playing our song. Like it plays anything at...
Going to Hell
Warn your friends: I’m no good. Turn away if I start to move my lips, Don’t let the words come out. Warn your sister not to smoke Or to laugh when she lights her cigarettes. Don’t let the smoke get in. She goes back & forth Across the street, buys a match, Just to throw it out and watch what burns. Fuck your friends, they’re no good, They’re the ones who start to...
My Favorite Blue Raincoat
L. Cohen- It’s Four in the morning, end of December. I’m writing to tell you I’m better. New York is cold. Do you like where you’re living? There’s music on Clinton St. all through the evening. Did you hear I’m building my little house in the desert? I’m living for nothing now. This is my record. Well, when Jane came by with a lock of my hai r, did she...
Geoff Rickly, Zena Rd. (the solo project of Texas is the Reason frontman Garrett Klahn) and Fred Mascherino’s Terrible Things will tour the Northeast in late November/early December. There will only be a limited amount of shows and each of them will take place exclusively as “house show” performances. Following these initial house shows, Terrible Things and Zena Rd. will continue on their own...
Thanks to everybody who ordered the print. Please don’t try to find it on PayPal, as it’s all sold out but won’t stop selling(even though I set a limit)… A few people were able to buy after it sold out and, luckily, I have a few Artist Proof copies to send them which are even better than the numbered ones, from a collector’s standpoint. Ah the pains of being poor at...
This will be another place that I post news, songs, and releases. I’ve decided to do everything myself for now, not in any attempt to be super DIY and impress people but just because it feels right for now. Thanks for caring, Geoff
