Biography

the red water revival formed in early 2006 by five friends out of a mutual love for aural experiments, meteorology, and volcanoes. these individuals found solace and potential in a tapestry of sound that made them both uncomfortable and excited. andrew j (guitars, vocals), j hall (drums, percussion), rebecca p (bass, vocals), jeffro j (keys, vocals, guitar) and daniel h (vocals, guitars, harp) have all been meandering through the midwest music scene for many a moon, and decided to create a new brand of pseudo-conceptual psychedelic blues rock in the veins and aortas of the artists of the past, present and future. both prolific and nonsensical, the red water revivals take on rock music falls in that grey area when youre not completely awake, and not exactly sleeping and then a demolished boat crashed through your rooftop and the pilot asked you for telephone wire. the noise of the tornadoes giving birth and the alley cats sharing a whiskey over discussions of public radio programs. clever victory and jealous defeat tied into one hard to swallow euphoria funeral dinner. no weak hearts, no dogmatic revolutionaries, and certainly no children. you forget what you believe and come join our circus...

Lyrics

in the fairest of seasons/an odd numbered year

Written By: the red water revival

send me up stairs with no supper and
acting out like a cold lover
the coastal coats raise like no other
carry your ghost...oh mother

paradigm smile sittin pretty
hoist the flag high over the city
the terrible trials and merry-go rides that drag you down.

barter your sin catch and carry
follow that win but be wary
i didn’t expect to see you up and walkin’ so soon

DON”T GO. STAY HOME.

tell me ‘bout you and your season
a church overdue for believin’
nothing is right and nothing is fair but it carries you home

if this is your grace consider
pack up your things now before winter
everyone comes and everyone goes and empties this place

DON”T GO. STAY HOME.

send me up stairs with no supper and
acting out like a cold lover
the coastal coats raise like no other
carry your ghost...oh mother
carry your ghost...oh mother

the secret life of spaceghost macgee

Written By: the red water revival

caught inside a lie pretending that he doesn’t know
“all the world is green, and it’s getting me down, down, down.”
macgee was 24 and thom was 23 and they were loud, loud, loud

the broken glass and thinking wheels he left them...
when’s he coming home (tell me) when’s he coming home for sure...
race to find the son within again, but...
you don’t wanna see this, you don’t wanna see this....

infamy that killed the cat a little later...
the whole damn town soon knew that he was gone, gone...
the belly of the beast was the anger on the street and it was loud, loud, loud

the trial was such an easy smile for some, yea
when’s he gonna die tell me when’s he gonna die for sure...
press to find a reason it came to this
you don’t wanna see this, you don’t wanna see this....

“a call for your mother...wine for your father...
they didn’t like the sight of it and just when they decided it....
he killed him in the backyard....he killed him in the backyard....
it will never be enough...it will never be enough...
little did they know...death is just for show....”

the weather report on the radios

Written By: the red water revival

they say it will blow over in a couple of days
and if all the animals plants and people survive
it should all go back to the way it was before

don’t blame me i heard it on the radio

rain could drown the world in a convulsion of rage
use my heart as your floatation device
use my affection baby as your oxygen supply

don’t blame me i heard it on the radio

build a safe haven out of memory seams
everythings a reservoir at the end of the day
don’t know when i’ll be heading up north again

don’t blame me i heard it on the radio

i don’t have any skis or electric batteries…

Fe2O3

Written By: The Red Water Revival

in a jungle of fear
and dynamite lesions
the coins rust like fire
in the midwestern missions

the gunman said you're surrounded put it down
grady you're surrounded give it up
you're surrounded

no book could say
the infinite speeches
but the earth is so gray
from the distance it reaches

but what he said is you surround everything
grady you're surrounded you will never die

and you will walk in light
