Food & Other Flavours of Existence (EP)

by Angelus Marr/ Squid & The Krakens

supported by
/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Squid & The Kraken's intensely vivid inaugural EP activity - songs about coffee, romance, love, getting lost in the closet and emerging as monsters.. !!!

    Arrives in a funny weird little fake recycled-look cardboard wallet, of which the cover features a dancing cake (Kraken Cake), pirouetting merrily upon a hearth of flames, brandishing cutlery. smoking a flamboyantly luminous title. The CD is a porthole looking out on to a sea of black, the still calm of ink stretching out for miles as far as your emotional vision pulses, as long as your ears are beckoned to attend, and in the water, song-names drift and sink, float and drop, waiting to be caught, wriggling on the end of your consciousness, while waves float up into the marine atmosphere and a writhing craft of tentacles suspended in mid-air lights up the gloom. On the flip side of the wallet, the songs crawl the shore to the city, or back to the sea, it is not clear, and more information about the wondrous beings who recorded, engineered and mastered the sound can be found.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Food & Other Flavours of Existence (EP) via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

Track Name: Caffeine Woman
She got my heart racing down the street
It went so quick, it tripped over my feet.
They asked me WHY I was speeding again
I said just listen to me, I can explain..

Chorus:
That Caffeine Woman keeps me up all night
That Caffeine Woman, she makes it all right
That Caffeine Woman she's too fast for me,
But I'd rather drink HER than decaf tea.

She got my brain buzzing out of my head
I've lost my mind and I like it I said
I don't feel empty and I don't feel blue
But when I get it back I want some words with YOU!

Chorus..

She got my body out of the grave
She said, Well you're alive but you need to BATHE!
She wrapped her legs around my head
And then I opened my mouth and I said..

Final Chorus..
That Caffeine Woman keeps me up all night
That Caffeine Woman, she makes it all right
That Caffeine Woman she's perfect for me
And I'd rather drink HER than decaf tea.
Track Name: The Seagull
A mashed up little seagull crashed through my windowpane
She tidied up my desk but then I messed it up again..
She ate all my cough sweets, left a feather in my brain..
I hope she flies home safely, through all the wind and rain.
Track Name: Early One Morning
Early one morning, just as the sun was rising
I heard you singing in the valley below
Oh don't deceive me!
Oh never leave me!
How could you treat a poor me like so!
Track Name: Tiramisu
Verse 1:
We were eating some tira misu
Myself some friends and two cats (meow)
When all of a sudden, SHE appears!
And I'm like Hell! What's that??!

At first we tried to put her back
But she weren't having none of that
And then she tried to get us in
But none of us could swim...

Chorus:
Let's get married Tira Misooo
I don't like coffee but I love you!
Don't break my heart in two.......
I'll be forever true!

Verse 2:
She said now listen to me well,
I'm more than a dessert
And if you try those OTHER treats
Well that would really hurt.

We went for a walk in the park
With dinosaurs in the dark
We danced our way to Spain and back
We painted everything gold and black...

(Chorus)

Verse 3:
We lasted just 3 whole weeks
My Tira Misooo and I
Got back home from work one night
Her note just said, "GOODBYE!" (Crash)

At first we tried to get her back
But she weren't having none of that
And then she tried to push us in
And that was when I learnt to swim.....

(Chorus)
Track Name: The Dragon
The dragon in the back yard wants to go back to the sea.
My mother says, Please take it - before we have our tea.
She calls me by my real name. She knows where I want to be.
The dragon in the back yard has gone back to the sea...

AAAAAAAAAAGH!

I've got no
Hearts left to break
I've got no soul left to take
Oh! The devil's drunk my whisky
And she/he's got a belly ache.
The angel's flown the bridge
And there's nothing in the fridge! SO..
Shabsi, Shabsi, Shabsi
Won't you bring us some more cake..

The monster in the closet is tapping on the door.
There's a key around my neck but I don't know what it's for.
I'll tell you a secret if you show me what you saw.
The monster in the closet is opening the door...

Chorus..

The wolf is in the kitchen watching a gameshow.
If the phone starts ringing, who will say hello.
Just ignore the screams from the cellar down below.
The wolf has left the kitchen and it's time for us to go...

Chorus..
