Recorded in January 2013, "Saint First" brings Matt Livensparger's seefüd project back from the dead, which went defunct in 2005.

Downloading the full album gets you 10 full-color liner cards featuring my own photography as .jpgs, and a near-10 minute re-imagining of the "Halloween" theme as a bonus track.

The frequency spectrum has been filled. The stereo panning is seizure-inducing. The beats are the hüks.

Not recommended for use with mono devices.

Tracks 1-7 makeup Side A of the 60 minute cassette release. Track 8 is side B. Two copies currently exist. More could, later.

Happy Halloween
ML 2013


released October 22, 2013

Justin Schubert - additional guitars and effects on 8.

Special thanks to Chazz Bessette, Jason Baljevich and Nathaniel Knapp.
Extra special thanks to Eric McClung.

The first album recorded and destroyed at St. Elmo and South First, Austin, TX of many.

Drop down, baby, let your daddy see.

-Robert Plant
Track Name: Brown Peat
Between his eyes, there were four lines, the marks of such misery as children should never feel. He spoke with that wonderful whisky voice that so many Spanish children have, and he was a tough and entire little boy.

Track Name: Fire Roasted
"Pick me!"
Track Name: Sevrend
A severed hand Is an ugly thing and man dissevered from the earth and stars and his history... for contemplation or in fact... Often appears atrociously ugly. Integrity is wholeness, the greatest beauty is Organic wholeness, the wholeness of life and things, the divine beauty of the universe. Love that, not man Apart from that, or else you will share man's pitiful confusions, or drown in despair when his days darken.

History and experience tell us that moral progress comes not in comfortable and complacent times, but out of trial and confusion.

-Gerald Ford
Track Name: Bang!
The Dark Arts are many, varied, ever-changing and eternal. Fighting them is like fighting a many-headed monster, which, each time a neck is severed, sprouts a head even fiercer and cleverer than before. You are fighting that which is unfixed, mutating, indestructible.

-Severus Snape
Track Name: This Town's Hatchet Was Chosen For The Lunar Time Capsule
The infancy of youth, the youth of manhood, the entire past of age.
But yesterday I should have thought me blest
To stand high-pinnacled upon the peak
Of middle life and look adown the bleak And unfamiliar foreslope to the West,
Where solemn shadows all the land invest
And stilly voices, half-remembered, speak
Unfinished prophecy, and witch-fires freak
The haunted twilight of the Dark of Rest.
Yea, yesterday my soul was all aflame
To stay the shadow on the dial's face
At manhood's noonmark!
Now, in God His name I chide aloud the little interspace
Disparting me from
Certitude, and fain
Would know the dream and vision ne'er again.

-Baruch Arnegriff
Track Name: Golden Death Mask - Halloween (seefüd Remix) (Bonus track)
When Michael Myers was six years old, he stabbed hs sister to death. He was locked up for years in Smith's Grove Sanitarium, but he escaped. Soon after, Halloween became another word for mayhem. One by one, he killed his entire family, until his nine-year-old niece, Jamie Lloyd, was the only one left alive. Six years ago - Halloween night - Michael and Jamie vanished. Most people believed them dead but I believe someone hid them away. Someone who keeps Michael, protects him... tries to control him. If there's one thing I know, you can't control evil. You can lock it up, burn it, and bury it, and pray that it dies, but it never will. It just... rests awhile. You can lock your doors, and say your prayers, but the evil is out there... waiting. And maybe, just maybe... it's closer than you think.

-Tommy Doyle
