about

Black Sandwich is a baby band from the basement!

They’ve gone through at least three drummers and bass players in their first year together but Black Sandwich was, is and ever shall be Meo & John. She is a bottomless well of vocal mystery, lyrical cuts to the gut, and sublime melody addiction; he is her foil and muse, the blanket that wraps her. John’s guitar does its own musical alchemy, executing an exquisite new template for each song, always complementing and never replicating. Together they coil and swirl, a musical DNA that we can only see as a squirming, bawling infant right now. It’s gonna grow up into some kinda amazing band.

Black Sandwich’s first official album is Suddenly Wednesday (FPE Records, cassette; July 14). The album careens from lite reggae to grungy punk to sunshine pop to Canterbury prog, all filtered through the trebly sheen of Meo and John’s exacting self-production and Jessica Saldana’s keyboard.

Track Name: groovynewmixin
Well, I chew my skin
It's the best
I'm waiting
I'm waiting for you to come back
And if I would I could
I've waited all my life

Well, that shit is fading

No I don't know all the words
But I've been way down
And if there is a god
She's been way down
Way down
Track Name: Garden Snake
Eight Six Seven Five
I'm happy to be alive
But you've gotta tell me when it hurts
I'm not a mind reader

Hey now that you're doing better
Find yourself another sweater
Cool, man, if you wanna let her
Find yourself another sweater

We decide when pasta's good
We're from Sicily
When it was so hot then
We learned history

I could be here all night
Track Name: Butt Nugget
I was born on holy water
You know I've seen it all
Victims of a fallacy will
Serve you cos they crawl

Oh, man, shut up get out of my house
Don't lie to me cos I'll kill you

It only hurts when I breathe in
It only hurts when I breathe out

Doing fine on my own
I don't need you
I burned your sheets
You crashed my show
Oh what do you think of that

Oh, man, shut up get out of my house
Don't lie to me cos I'll kill you

It only hurts when I breathe in
It only hurts when I breathe out

Where o where where are you
It was just a read through
Where o where where are you
Where are you now
Track Name: New U
One day you'll call me
And I won't remember what you said
A mind just like a mole
But still I'll be so

Glad you made it
Oh you know that I'm happy to see you
I'd come back if I could remember
What I did last summer

Oh one day you'll forget my name
ANd all the words I said
Oh I'll just go away
They tell me that you're

Overrated
Oh you know that I'm happy to see you
I'd come back if I could remember
what I did last summer

We're so glad you made it
Oh you know that I'm happy to see you
I'd come back if I could remember
What I did last summer
You're so glad you made it
Oh you know that I'm happy to see you
I'd come back if I could remember
What I did last summer
I can't remember summer
Track Name: Dandelion's Revenge
I never felt love until I met you
Is that a stupid thing to say?
Well, I'm a fool anyway
Of course I miss you
It was an awful thing to do

I swear
Oooh aah

By the way you hold your head
They think they read you like a book
Mistaken every word you spoke
I guess I'll give you a show
But you'll be the last to know
Track Name: Branches
Trace my branches to you dear
And I'll kill you slowly
I was a holy roller way back when I was young

I know I know I know I know

Well, I don't believe you
No I don't believe you're gone
I don't believe you

I know I know I know I know

Well, I want to leave
But I feel crazy
I got in your car
And we drove to the end of the world
Track Name: Ribcage
I like to go to the movies
I like to go to sit in my chair
(I honestly cannot remember what I'm saying after that)
Track Name: PPOT
Well it's the same line
you told me most every day
But I still hold on
Waiting for the time you break

Sing along
It's a shame to move on
And by the way
I heard the things you said
About me

Hey, it's a mistake
If I stay becos well, you'll move on
Cos you heard the things they say about me
Dododo...
Track Name: shittyfuckinweed
You told me that
You didn't wanna hear my lies anymore
You're insecure
Why won't you get in my car
it won't hurt you, man
but i feel sore

I opened all of the scars that I know
Cos they won't let me grow...hey
You're insecure
Why won't you get in my car
It won't hurt you man
But I feel sore
Track Name: SPACE CRADLE
Well, I'll just cover my eyes
While you pucker your lips
Cos I'm walking away
And by the weight of your hand
I can tell that the splinter dug in

She's at the back of my closet
Throwing up today
Oooh we'll have it all
That is not my way

Well, I'll just cover my eyes
While you pucker your lips
Cos I'm walking away
And by the weight of your hand
I can tell that the splinter dug in

She don't even care
Couldn't give a damn
She's at the back of my closet
Throwing up today
Oooh we'll have it all
That is not my way
Track Name: Dude Don't
By the way, I was born ugly
I'm a shy lover
And my toes are lumpy
So you wanna use me

Lalalalala
Oh what did you do?
Now you turn it around
And tell them that I used you
Oh what a mistake
I'll never trust you again

Creatures I see stare vacantly
To the sun I give my name
God always finds someone to blame

It's not that I don't believe you anymore
It's not that I don't believe you
What's in store

Well, I sit on the bed and I rock
Back and forth. All day. It used
To get things done. But I don't know anymore...
Track Name: Driven by the Hive
They all tell me I'm a woman
But I never felt my body
And they tell me I'm your daughter
But I never loved him anyway

Pick me up
shark meal
pick me up
cos i can't feel
tell me that we will be forever

I don't get up
I just lie there
I'm drowning in my own piss
And you don't know my lover
No you don't know his fist

Pick me up
shark meal
pick me up
cos i can't feel
tell me that we will be forever

take yr racist shit away
take it away from me
Track Name: For I Am Satan
For I am Satan
Will you forgive me
For I am Satan forgive
I lost my memory
I killed a baby
For I am Satan forgive me
I've promised
