- The Lemon Demon concert will start at 6 PM on Friday. The band’s been practicing hard, there are a bunch of never-before-performed songs on the setlist, and there will be a ~dazzling~ array of specially edited backup video, hacked and slashed together by Neil!
- Potter Puppet Pals will be at NOON O’CLOCK on Sunday. Alas, Emmy can’t make it this year, but Alora, Neil and I will be performing the 45 minute long magnum opus we presented last July at Leakycon, featuring my favorite new song which is not in any videos thus far, “Wizard Treats.” Chow down on magic!
Hope to see some of you there! And if you can’t make it to Detroit this week, PPP is also working on some live dates on the East Coast this winter, and who knows what the future shall bring for the glorious warriors of the Lemon Demon band?! Hopefully some more of that glory stuff, glory is always nice.
“Eighth Wonder,” based on the tale of Gef the Talking Mongoose, is one of my favorite songs of Neil’s. I hand painted its lyrics on a series of cards for the music video, which was filmed over the course of a few days between the summer and fall of 2009 at Neil’s family home on the South Shore of Massachusetts.
The mysterious words and creepy imagery combine to make just the sort of aesthetic statement I most enjoy. So as we head into August, here’s a last hurrah for the summer, and a glad hello to autumn!
Thou wilt never Know what I am. I am the fifth dimension And I will split the atom.
And if you see me, You’re paralyzed. Pillar of salt, You’re mummified.
Hello, I’m here. I’m living in the wall. I know, I might be small, But I am the eighth wonder.
