    Time Is Gold is preceded by three 7” releases and continues the band’s practice of weaving chaotic rock arrangements around each song’s folk core.

    This first full-length album includes a few songs from the vinyl singles as well as new material with varying subject matter. “Truman” traces the history of the modern presidency while “St. Francis of Illinois” pays tribute to Vachel Lindsay, considered by many to
    be the father of modern performance poetry.

lyrics

Center Of The Storm - for Lucy Parsons

Up from Waco, where we're not welcome
up from Waco to Chicago
to the center of the storm, to the center of the storm
I said I still see slaves with longer chains
they said leave town or you will hang

you can vote for bread clothes and shelter
you can vote but they won't give you these things
leaders make the laws and live real comfortable
live off you workers like foreign kings
what you produce is no guarantee
toil and pray your time is gold
your time is gold and when you have no means
that's what gets sold

Up from Waco, where we're not welcome
up from Waco to Chicago
to the center of the storm, to the center of the storm
I said I still see slaves with longer chains
they said leave town or you will hang
