No Mind's Eye, Family Swan, & What
About The Boy? are live versions of songs on The Family Swan. Kill Rock Stars.
|No Mind's Eye (3.6 MB) is our newest song, written in the summer of 2001. This is our first performance of it, Yo Yo A Go Go Festival in Olympia, Washington (July 20, 2001) in the Capitol Theater - where we have recorded and played many times. This version was recorded to DAT in the audience by Jack DeGuiseppi.|
|Family Swan (7.2 MB), recorded on its third performance, Yo Yo A Go Go, 2001. Rather than being merely sorrowful, it reveals things said that were "never to be repeated outside these four walls!" In the family dynamic, weird accusations change children forever. Did it really happen? The adult does the remembering, unsettled feelings linger on. This is the Yo Yo Studio version. Thanks to Pat Maley.|
|What About The Boy? (4.9 MB) -- another first performance. Really fun to finally play, after all that rehearsing. It will be looser soon! Springier and zingier on the September tour! Jack DeGuiseppi recorded to DAT, in the audience at Yo Yo A Go Go, 2001.|
