about

for Lou (Reed)

lyrics

Everybody
Does their business
Everybody does it
Right
It al drains
With the rain
Like a
Lullaby

To distract myself
from the death of Lou
I watch a movie
About
Rollercoasters
In the future

She looks good
In a man's shirt
Dipping her hair
In my whiskey
Don't tell me we are
Liars, thieves, birds
It hurts
Oh, yeah it hurts

To distract myself
from the death of Lou
I watch a movie
About
Rollercoasters
In the future

A car that drives
A car that dance
The battery is
the lullaby
All considered
Nobody is wrong
Nobody is right

To distract myself
from the death of Lou
I watch a movie
About
Rollercoasters
In the future
To distract myself
from the death of Lou
I watch a movie
About
Rollercoasters
In the future

about

pampa Seattle, Washington

Jonathan Zwickel from Seattle City Arts magazine describes PAMPA as "timeless lo-fi, downtempo guitar pop that is equal parts Phil Spector-ish Wall of Sound, and limber Yo La Tengo-esque jangle" and "magnetic melancholy of a particular Northwest bent"

Pampa is Moon Baillie-vocals/guitars, Steve Lykken-drums, Kerrick Olson-guitar/vocals, John Carlson-Bass-vocals, Nate Rogers-keyboard/vocals.
