Cursed Exile 02:16
dad was buried in his leather jacket all night long I danced on his grave caught by the preacher the undertaker bribed a sheriff to get away O cursed exile fell in love with a necromancer wasted all my holiday pay she left me for a topless dancer said she needed "livelier prey" O cursed exile bought a car parked it on the ocean julian was my only friend kept his stash in a purple bandana it's fun until the cops bust in O cursed exile

I chanced upon a feral sister smoking a sidewalk cigarette she drew me a map of the city on a barroom serviette cryptic as a mason she whispered "if you read the map right "I'll meet you at my fathers grave "next friday night" I follow her map of the city my feet and my headphones are broke and it's been ten long years since I heard a new joke in the smoke in the headlights on the wrong end of the night I might not ever get home I might not ever get right. she's the bright half of the strobe light me I'd dead black doubles in the mind split in time follow deaf dumb blind I chanced upon a feral sister gave me something thought I'd never get she drew me a map of the city on a barroom serviette. followed the twisted chickenscratch lines drifting further from home I dream of her stoner eyes heaven reflected on chrome

bleached moon torn from a skeleton rented rooms private rebellions daybreak dumptruck still drunk blues the ghost of sheets she's looking for her shoes it's the game with no rules sweet and confused 9/10th's used but like that bottle I won't be refused changed my MO my christian name but in the cult of strangers we all look the same I just tilt my wings I just pack my things ubermensch underground product of experiment spilling wine in an incense tenement bless the road so long so black that brought me here that'll bring me back it's the game with no rules I just tilt my wings I just pack my things

Cousin Larry 03:24
at larry's the drugs are hard turn the sun to splinter the moon into shards at larry's how will it stop I get scared someone will call the cops it's scary to find out who you really are larry plucks an untuned guitar got liquor in the jar dogs in the yards at larry's turn out all the lights lock all the doors stay up all night it's scary to find out who you really are take care of yourself I know you don't take care of yourself I know you won't at larry's half-dead half-buried the cross that you swallowed is the cross that you carried at larry's how will it stop I get scared that larry is a cop it's scary to find out who you really are

about

Donovan Quinn makes the leap back into solo activity with Dad Was Buried in His Leather Jacket, an EP of mostly uptempo story songs. Herein Quinn writes about those at the end of a long series of parties, in the penumbra around the fun, just before all the booze and drugs and casual conversation turn sour...

A large cast of collaborators help to create the atmosphere of trouble hiding behind fun. Quinn's New Bums partner Ben Chasny adds devastating shredder guitar to "Game with No Rules", whereas Glenn Donaldson, the other half of Quinn's duo Skygreen Leopards, adds textural synth and sweet high vocals. Others on board include Elisa Ambrogio (Magik Markers), Jason Quever (Papercuts), David Novick, Michael Tapscott (Odawas) and Eric Amerman, all of whom push Quinn's songs into surprising new sonic places.
