about

TECH SPECS:

The Odeon concert was recorded by bassist Nate Pelfrey's dad, Jeff, on a cam-corder from the balcony of the club. The on-camera microphone soundtrack from this VHS-C tape was treated with X-Noise from Waves and sweetened with UAD plugins in Cubase 5 by Enormity frontman Brian Ullman in July 2018. It was mastered using LANDR’s automated system on the "medium" setting.

"Man of the Crowd" was originally recorded to Ampex 456 tape on November 22nd, 1997 at CMC Studios in Canton, Ohio by Jim Smith. It has survived only via the unfinished music video for the song started in 1997 and finished in 2018 by (Brian's brother) David. The demo cassette dub from CMC was transferred to SVHS video using a Panasonic AG-7750 deck and preserved in "glorious monophonic sound" (as Mike Crooker says elsewhere in this booklet). What is heard here went through the same audio sweetening and mastering process as the Odeon show.

Track Name: Dick (Ode to the Roadie)
Verse 1:
He rules his world, and he's not ashamed
That Mr. Leadpoisening is his favourite game
Relying on everyone to always be there
Missing, now cursing with no hate to spare
He is the reason he all came to see me

Chorus:
Hey you
Watch cha looking at
Hey you
I'm on a mass attack
Hey you
You just woke him up
Hey you
You better be giving it up

Verse 2:
He was the swine as he walked down the hall
He gave the wave, but they always stalled
He's tried to be nice and he's tried to be fair
All they've done is not even care
He is the reason you all are so blind

Chorus:
Hey you
Watch cha looking at
Hey you
I'm on a mass attack
Hey you
You just woke him up
Hey you
You better be giving it up
Track Name: Man of the Crowd
Verse 1:
Swimming to you just to feel the coldness of your lies
Leaving a trail of games and tricks just to waste all of my time
There's nothing left to do but end this selfishness and greed
But I am dumb and you are sick I don't know what to plead

Chorus:
Someone smack me for I think I have a life
All my thoughts and dreams are full of all your lies
Smothering wishes can't bring me to my knees
I want to start anew just to show you who I need
To stand out like that man of the crowd
To stand out like that man of the crowd

Verse 2:
Your fire is never as hot as the passion of my hate
I know you're never in love and you're always too late
Blowing kisses to the one I love a lot
You're spitting on my grave while I'm down there smoking...

Chorus:
Someone smack me for I think I have a life
All my thoughts and dreams are full of all your lies
Smothering wishes can't bring me to my knees
I want to start anew just to show you who I need
To stand out like that man of the crowd
To stand out like that man of the crowd
Track Name: Playing God
Verse 1:
Why can't you figure out that your words are full of shit
I've got to cut you down and let you know who's in charge of it
These things that I have found can lift you up then throw you down

Chorus:
Twisted fingers like the passage to her soul
I've got to climb inside just to make you whole

Verse 2:
Why do you have to be such a... Why can't you find someone to love
Why do you have to stay and ruin everything that's true
Why can't you listen to the people who are yelling to

Chorus:
Twisted fingers like the passage to her soul
I've got to climb inside just to make you whole
Track Name: Man of the Crowd (Demo)

Chorus:
Someone smack me for I think I have a life
All my thoughts and dreams are full of all your lies
