about

The Marble Tea Point Pleasant

Drawing mandalas and watching Captain Kangaroo...that's pretty much what it's like in here. I enjoy writing songs about my cats and cartoon insects, but I'm also fond of feeling up the tentacles that lead to the oneness of existence. That's the Marble Tea experience.

Recommended for fans of Jonathan Richman, Robyn Hitchcock, Jazz Butcher, Magnetic Fields, etc.

Track Name: Banana Cat
i took my head to my favorite place
swam in the dirt and got mud on my face
felt like a reptile
looked like an ostrich
but wherever i go
no one notices me

i gave a rose to my librarian
she says that i remind her of d'artagnan
she hides like a hermit
reads too much calvino
but whenever she's near
i'm a tigery guy

[i have a banana at home
that thinks it's a cat
and whenever it goes
it stays where it's at
sometimes i think this is
all really real
but usually i'm slipping
on my cat's banana peel]

i fell right out of a tree that could talk
pulled at the roots to see if it could walk
quick disappointment
turned to security
when the tree said to me
"i won't go anywhere"
it's a giving tree....
Track Name: 3 Minute Pop Songs
my life is measured out in 3 minute pop songs
it's also measured out in cigarettes and tea
my life is measured out in 3 minute pop songs
and maybe eno's shirts if he'd give some to me

don't go changing that radio station
don't go touching your little dial
unless you put on that glass compilation
any song yeah i don't care at all....

my life is measured out in 3 minute pop songs
by the magnetic fields, the soft boys and lou reed
my life is measured out in 3 minute pop songs
by stockholm monsters and that fishy jbc

my life is measured out in 3 minute pop songs
just like the smiths and maybe early morrissey
my life is measured out in 3 minute pop songs
i even like that moody stuff on 4ad

don't go changing that radio station
don't go touching your little dial
unless you put on young popular & sexy
i always liked that railway children song

my life is measured out in 3 minute pop songs
one's rebel rebel by david bowie
my life is measured out in 3 minute pop songs
by all the davy jones & all the monkees

my life is measured out in 3 minute pop songs
just like joao gilberto's simple joie de vivre
my life is measured out in 3 minute pop songs
it's not a boast but i will say the marble tea too

my life is measured out in 3 minute pop songs
the beatles, jojo, liz phair & the raspberries
my life is measured out in 3 minute pop songs
the monochrome set & of course the go-betweens

my life is measured out in 3 minute pop songs
smokey, stevie & (hey!) memphis tennessee
my life is measured out in 3 minute pop songs
le disque du crepescule & factory

my life is measured out in 3 minute pop songs
my life is measured out in 3 minute pop songs
my life is measured out in 3 minute pop songs
my life is measured out in 3 minute pop songs
Track Name: Pacific Radio Fire
i don't want to think of you
as a lover just passing through
there aren't enough days to live that way

so i burn the radio
and i melt the songs real slow
now the music sounds just how i feel

i don't care if you're through with me
i might acknowledge it distantly
when i see you each night in my sad dreams

i don't want to be forgiving
after all there's no crime in living
but there is one thing i can't forget

so i burn the radio
and i melt the songs real slow
now the music sounds just how i feel
Track Name: Overcoats
here they come
they're overcoats
and they're warm
and very good to us

when you put one on
i have to smile
for i know exactly
how you feel

there they go
they're overcoats
i've got something
i should say to those

and your overcoat's
my favorite piece of clothing
yes your overcoat's
my favorite piece of clothing
