about

A comely collection of 8-track cassette portastudio demos which Alison's Halo recorded in 1996 in preparation for their debut "Eyedazzler" CD. These songs were eventually excluded from the album due to their stylistic differences with the rest of the material, but the impressive songwriting showcased here definitely displays a band in transition. Gentler dynamics, expansive arrangements and playful meters all clear a musical path for Catherine Cooper's heavenly voice to shine through.

Track Name: Sounds Like Suzie
Sounds Like Suzie

Five days have passed in silence
Footsteps make sole reminders
That we could share the senses
That make the monsters above us

And at two in the sad A.M.
The voices they growl again
and oh
One sounds like Suzie.

Sometimes we call the lawman
Can't help but get involved with
These things that make the mornings
a time when monsters ignore love

At two in the sad A.M.
The voices they growl again
and oh
One sounds like Suzie.

Strange word exchange between them
Wonder why she sees him
Maybe the bottle's stronger than love
And now she's the monster

At two in the sad A.M.
The voices they growl again
and oh
One sounds like Suzie.

Months of mine
Have taken toll
to lessen love
It leaves me so lost inside

And the sky splits up in two
And it floods the time with you

Swivel soft
Wrestle fold
Never thought
Pushed to the point that I'd find

And the sky splits up in two
And it floods the time with you

Jetpacks for Julian

Unknown in him
He thought he saw UFOs then Jesus

Half the things we talked about
Left little room for me to doubt
That Julian had seen it all
On his rocket ride past the stars
I never got that far

Unfolding him
A hand of the smallest size so perfect

Half the things we talked about
Left little room for me to doubt
That Julian had seen it all
On his rocket ride past the stars
I never got that far

I never got that far
I never got that far
With him

I never got that far
I never got that far
With him
