about

This four song EP was recorded by Calvin Johnson at Dub Narcotic Studio for K Records and is Vol. CIX in the International Pop Underground series of 7" 45 rpm phonograph records. It is currently in print and available from K on CD, 7" and MP3.

"It's Lovely Weather for Ducks" came about after 40 days and 40 nights of rain in Olympia. Is it a wistful spinster anthem or a sad cry for attention?

lyrics

It's Lovely Weather for ducks

It's lovely weather for ducks
It's lovely weather for ducks
It's lovely weather for ducks
It's lovely weather for ducks

It might be fine to die alone

Like ducks like rain
Like I like rain
I like to live alone

Dogs are more obedient than boys I know
But books are best
Books are free at the library

It's lovely weather for ducks.
It's lovely weather for ducks
It's lovely weather for ducks

Spider and the Webs Olympia, Washington

Tritonia1 to the Muse attention lends: Who both her Verse, and iust revenge commends. Then said t' her selfe: To praise is of no worth: Let our revengefull Powre our praise set forth. Intends Arachnes ruine. She, she heard, Before her curious webs, her owne preferr'd. Nor dwelling, nor her nation fame impart Vnto the Damsell, but excelling Art.

- Tobi, James & Chris.

P.S. Where's Bongo Randy?
