10. before i fry - this is from the same show as the previous song. this song also appeared in a different form on “tape leafs”, a cd-r release on mr. whiggs recordings. this has always been one of my favorite songs to play live because it’s so simple and heavy. for me, anyway. sam’s vocal accompaniment is great and i think pat really loved playing this song, too. it was great having so many friends at this show. that’s something i remember about this time: so many of my friends were so supportive and would come out to shows on weeknights at questionable venues and hang out. we were so lucky to have each other!


from What Was Birds: 2000​-​2011, released July 1, 2012
