about

postfixE Lemont, Illinois

In the early 90's we started making recordings on a 4track tape recorder using instruments we found in the garbage & at garage sales. We were responding to our environment by taking solace in the practice of recording. Theory was largely disregarded for an experimental approach to producing musical collage soundscapes. Our live performances are more like guerilla theater than rock-n-roll. cheers. ... more

Track Name: Borderland
Transmitting from the intersection, where realities collide. I live my life in the borderland, I live my life out there.
Track Name: You Are So Beautiful
You are so Beautiful, like a star up in the sky
A sparkle in the morning sun deep into the night
You are so Beautiful, like a newborn babies cry
When we dance together everything’s alright
You are so Beautiful, like flowers in the spring
Something about the way you are makes me want to sing
You are so Beautiful, I just have to say
You’re perfect just the way you are don’t go change a thing

You’re Beautiful to me

You are so Beautiful, like lasers in the storm
Listen to the beat and dance, keep our smiles warm
You are so Beautiful, I love the way you move
When you shake your body, when we feel the groove
You are so Beautiful, like rhythms in the night
Liberating minds and hearts, let’s get out of sight
You are so Beautiful, like the funky side of life
There’s a house party on the edge of town, let’s go there tonight

You’re Beautiful to me

You are so Beautiful, like in each and every way
When you’re rockin’ the babies or getting’ down to play
You are so Beautiful, like the years go flying by
Let’s take some time together and get a little high
You are so Beautiful, like a blooming lotus flower
There’s a disco in the kitchen and we’re makin’ people power
You are so Beautiful, like ‘take it to the streets’
Change on every corner and everyone we meet

You’re Beautiful to me

You are so Beautiful
Track Name: Welcome to the World
Cat’s in the cradle and the silver spoon
little boy blue and the man and a moon
where you coming from? where you goin’ to?
whatcha gonna know? And, whatcha gonna do?
Welcome to the world it’s a beautiful place
Though it’s just a rock and we’re floating in space
I can see the universe looking at your face
Eyes connect and we communicate
A bond of love that will not break
The test of time, the stakes the state
Workin’ for the man when you graduate
So much deeper to participate
it’s…

…from the day you were born to the night before
I didn’t know what you had in store
Upside down were my ceilings and floors
Seemed to be locked out of all the doors
But that’s when you brought the key
And tuned me into the frequency
You melt my heart when you’re smiling
Give me a hug ‘cause we’re spiraling
I’ll do what I can to get us free
Provide some light when you can’t see
If you want advice, you can talk to me
If you know a good joke please share it with me

When you’re all grown up and facing the machine
Think back on the songs we’d sing
If I had a hammer and I took a swing
All the bells of freedom just to hear them ring
It’s a song of love for space and land
Brothers and sisters, woman and man
It’s a song to make the whole world sing
A song of love for you
Track Name: DOWNTOWN
The buildings are tall, you can’t see the sky
Everyone appears to be high. I’m downtown, I think I’ll go get something to eat.
I wish I were not downtown
Downtown train, take me away.
Track Name: Don’t Stop
runnin’ runnin’ runnin’ runnin’ runnin’

You don’t stop, ‘cause there might be something better
No ya don’t stop, ‘cause there’s always something better
And you don’t got all the pieces put together
So ya don’t stop, ‘cause you don’t know what to weather

Don’t stop
Don’t stop
And you don’t stop

Don’t stop, the sound is getting wetter
And don’t stop, everything is getting’ better and we got put together
Don’t stop, until we both get what we pleasure

Don’t stop
Don’t stop
Track Name: No Place Like Home
Been to outer space, flown circles round the moon
Had a rocket ship took a million trips
I mingled with the gnomes and slept amongst the monsters too
Partied with the zombies, ate pizza with the mobsters
Antennae like a lobster, bobble-headed pop star
Crystalline quasar, fractal like a grateful dead moon

No Place Like Home

Camped out in the fields, chased dragons in the sky
Let the light guide me, even when it’s blinding
My pupils are dialing, I wonder if my call will get through
Ate a cookie with a wookie, watched a spaced out rookie
Chasing glow sticks, looking perplexed
Slightly convex, bouncing around the room

No Place Like Home

Seen the frontlines of attempted revolution
Didn’t have much time, but I made a contribution
Maybe sing a song and cut down on pollution at home
If I leave a mark, it’s a beautiful addition
If I take away, it’s with her permission
Rotate around the sun because there is no dark side of the moon

No Place Like Home

Worked it to the bone for the seeds that I’ve sewn
Tended to the garden for the love that has grown
And even when it phases I know I couldn’t do it alone
The way it spirals out like a psychedelic tye-dye
Getting more intense when the colors blend
To form a new pattern like our family and friends

No Place Like Home
Track Name: WISCAIRO Polka
'Citizens United' paved the way for corporations
To dominate our lives through campaign donations
Now they funnel money to ambitious politicians
Promise them a book deal if they take the right positions
To privatize the commons,
Annihilate traditions,
Which help the middle class build better life conditions
Keep the workers down and they’ll get a tv show
To pass along the talking points, that’s all they need to know
Welcome to the show

Where the rich get rich and the poor get poor
Call it what you want but this is class war

Blame it on the teachers that are working for the unions
Firemens and cops, nurses, unemployment
They’re coming for our jobs to build a wal-mart nation
Step by step it’s war, break down the situation
Tax breaks for the rich, job cuts for the poor
A couple get a bonus and the rest get shown the door
So blame it on the people who make this country great
With rhetoric designed to build a corporate state
Based on hate

Well the rich get rich and the poor get poor
Call it what you want but this is class war

Well they tried it in Wisconsin but the people said “no way”
We’ll occupy the capital until we have a say
What started with a few, has grown into the many
Across the generations this has been the land of plenty
But now they want to sell us an empty bill of goods
But the badger state resisted in the city and the woods
They gathered up in Madison to have their voices heard
They’re fighting for their human rights and will not be deterred
“What’s disgusting?”

The rich get rich and the poor get poor
Call it what you want but this is class war

To say that we are broke is a weapon of deception
Economic ‘shock and awe’ and the next election
Sponsored by the rich, the things you do for power
has fertilized the garden, it now begins to flower
What started in WISCAIRO has spread throughout the nation
People everywhere come to the realization
That together we are strong, together we will fight
Together we will stand, tonight we will unite
Tonight we will unite

Well the rich get rich and the poor get poor
Call it what you want but this is class war
Track Name: Money and Sex
no good, over-sized, business man, jerk
makes a lot of money but he barely has to work

underpaid, overdressed, secretary skirt
does what she does, even though it hurts

we all love money, we all love sex
it’s a love/hate relationship, it’s certainly complex
we all need money, we all need sex
it’s a love/hate relationship, it’s certainly complex
we all want money, we all want sex
it’s a love/hate relationship, it’s certainly complex
we work for money, we work for sex
it’s a love/hate relationship, it’s certainly complex

knuckle bustin’, monkey wrenchin’, blue collared fool
makes enough money to buy a drink or two
down at the strip club, looking at the strippers
you could hang a flag off the pole in his zipper

we all love money, we all love sex
it’s a love/hate relationship, it’s certainly complex
we all need money, we all need sex
we wonder if it’s why we’re obsessed

excuse me.
Oh shit, money, sex, sex, money
Track Name: Don't You Know That I Know That You Know?
Don’t you know that I know that you know about it?

Yo IMHO
Tap into the tree of knowledge and flow
Waterin’ the garden, drink it to grow
Fall from the clouds at the start of the show

Don’t you know that I know that you know about it?

LMFAO
We’re just monkeys, don’t you know?
Are you real or just a troll?
Under the bridge of where we need to go

Don’t you know that I know that you know about it?

Oh no, TKO
Every time we talk it comes to blows
Words are weapons, so are flows
It’s the message I compose

We need PTO
From that talk, because we know
This goes back so long ago
Let’s just watch the garden grow

Don’t you know that I know that you know about it?
Don’t you know that I know that you know about it?
