about

Trevor Exter and John Kimock have a unique chemistry as musicians, wringing the depth of drums and cello.

Sounding at once modern and tribal, they take no prisoners with a driving groove and passionate lyrics. People often say that it sounds like a full band, even though there are just two of them. They don't use loops, but sometimes they do. Mostly they just floor it.

Track Name: On The Night Train
I left you once on the night train
I left you once once on the night train
I left you once on the night train
I left you once once once but baby here we go again

Lost my baggage many times
Singing someone else’s rhymes
Thought you’d save me from myself
Until I found my love sittin’ on your shelf

I left you once on the night train
I left you once once on the night train
I left you once on the night train
I left you once once once but baby here we go again

The sun can’t hold me to a face
Though I'd give anything for a taste
The things I like, you know they always hurt
Oh but in this life you got guns and you got church

I left you once on the night train
I left you once once on the night train

I should know better than to be smart
I should know better than to be smart
I should know better than to be smart
Your love it hit me like a poison dart

I left you once on the night train
I left you once once on the night train
I left you once on the night train
I left you once once once but baby here we go again
again again again again again
I left you once

Track Name: Mexico
dancing in the front yard
patterns in cement and skylights
1979 before the peso flew south
we smiled in the sunlight
Some of us learned to tumble right
before the time came to fall

Dad said no talking to strangers
Make friends with the boys on the block
this ain't no punkrock
But on day one I couldn't recognize
my house from the schoolbus window
wound up crying at a phonebooth
cross town

I want to go home
Things don't happen in slow motion
just because you're far away
Hold your friends in your heart
locked under seven keys
so said the song I heard in America

Dancing in the front yard
patterns in cement and skylights
1979 before the peso flew south
They smiled in the sunlight
at the end of each other's tunnel they were the light
And they dared kiss hope on the lips

I want to go home
I'll sing for you when you're gone
and you can have me in the song
why do i end up with these blues
every time I fall
Is this the love i had to lose
or must I lose them all
so said the song I heard in america

I want to go home
Things don't happen in slow motion
just because they're far away
Hold your friends in your heart
locked under seven keys
Just get me out of the weeds, please!
so said the song
so said the song I heard
I heard in america

dancing in the front yard
patterns in cement and skylights
1979 before the peso flew south
we smiled in the sunlight
some of us learned to travel light
before the time came to fall
before the time came to fall
before the time came to fall
Track Name: Hits
I gotta stash my paraphenalia
to land on the aircraft carrier
you like to call me a failure
but you're locked out behind the barrier

I'm not an inquiring mind
I haven't got the time
you see these are the good old days
and I'll see you at the coronation
they're crying out across the nation
praying for my salvation
they leveled the accusation
that I'm a walking greatest hits compilation

say he's a walking greatest hits compilation
we'll make a movie adaptation
it's no exaggeration
he's living in temptation
smoke sin beats procrastination

He's not an inquiring mind
Yeah I haven't got the time
I created a new sensation
come join my celebration
I'm risking my reputation
with my parent corporation
got a simple explanation, see
I am a walking greatest hits compilation
all i can hear is work when you sing
but this is not a work song not this time
I ain't got no hearing for your fake feeling
You think it's a fun time but the rewind is a bind
The Rewind Is A Bind!

I'm not an inquiring mind
Yeah I haven't got the time
ya know these are the good old days
and you are all part of my creation
and they're crying out across the nation
come and join my congregation
yeah they're praying for my salvation
'cause I'm a walking greatest hits
I'm a walking greatest hits
I'm a walking greatest hits
I'm a walking greatest hits compilation
Track Name: Drink Deep
come into the fold
you've wandered far and wide
you flew but you stayed true
to the song you carry inside
wondering if you'd ever find us
or the ones you left behind
wondering if you'd ever find us
or the ones you left behind

drink deep with the dawn
divine sleep we swim on

don't let the bounder get you down
you are not one of them
you are one of us
and we take care of our own

sister of the time, champion of lost hours
aloneness is a beast and she devours
I won battles, lost the war
and I can't fight anymore
I brought myself to death's door
trying to please people

don't let the bounder get you down
you are not one of them
you are one of us
and we take care of our own
