sKunK - Twin Tone

After releasing their 1st album “Last American Virgin”, and asking guitarist/songwriter Tim Aaron to join the band, tour in support of the release, as well as co-write, record & co-produce this 4trk cassette demo with drummer Claude Coleman Jr., Twin Tone enthusiastically released a second recording advance. Unbeknownst to Aaron, and citing a delay due to injury, the three original members made a last minute decision to switch directions, opting to become a trio, and absconded with the cash to a secret location with producer Andre Weiss (Rollins Band). An effort was made to quickly re-write much of the material resulting in “Laid” . The remaining tenure of the trio was short lived.

Possibly appreciating the additional raw competition between dueling guitarists, Thurston Moore made an effort to re-release the original cassette version on Sonic Youths label Ecstatic Peace, but guitarist Matt Sweeney lost his initial enthusiasm citing a lack of new artwork from original album cover artist Simon (his poster art pictured here). Sweeney stays busy having just completed a North American Tour with Cat Stevens & Iggy Pop. Drummer Claude Coleman jr. is drummer of Ween and other notables.

Track Name: kinder people
see the one i want to touch too much to feel
those kinder people get my heart down
those faces all explode
Track Name: mannequin halo man
you cooked a shadow on my brain
knocked me out
you took the peices that were sane
fried my skull
i'm just a simple man you see
ask mannequinhaloman
come rescue me

i think I'll watch tv
and maybe i will see
something i could buy
that'd make me feel alright tonight and

maybe dr. gene, will popup on my screen
and tell me how to live a life that's right for me for free

free, free, free
free from my troubles, i just need another day

blew my mind, just in time
ask mannequinhaloman
come rescue me, i'm so high

you cooked a shadow on my brain
knocked me out
you took the peices that were sane
fried my skull
i need the truth as plain as day
ask mannequinhaloman
come rescue me

i want the room to glow but no
i can't find my remote control
and when i do i call you up
you say you understand
then i get the bill

maybe i'm wrong and
maybe if i live real long i won't want to go to heaven
cause, i am just a guy hoping you'll forgive my unconcious mind

pay, pay, pay
and payin it confused me so i looked to the sky
and i don't put my head down
cause it keeps me from losing
when i go so far away
Track Name: beauty calls
all alone and theres nothing there
don't change me cause there's no one else
and blow it all away

i don't want to know it all
and i don't see it your way at all
