Biography

Of charismatic caricature of a frontman Matthew Basile Time Out NY says, "cyd glore's deep rolling vocals are a lovely complement to his rootsy, country-tinged-blues rock."

Their debut release, "personally, i'd rather not be fishing... an album by ::cyd glore's new masterpiece::" is a musical meditation on the inevitability of death, fleeting memories of love, and a palpable exasperation with Los Angeles; all of which are articulated with often disarming wit and profundity. With influences as varied as Johnny Cash, Jeff Tweedy, Radiohead and Andy Kaufman, the sound is both contemporary and classic, while their ability to break down traditional barriers between artist and audience make the high-energy ::cgnm:: live show a treat for followers and new-comers alike.

::cgnm:: is currently supporting the record with performances in and around NYC including a showcase at the 2006 CMJ Music Marathon.

Lyrics

An East Coast Girl

Written By: Matthew Basile

IÕve sunk back asleep
In this dolittle town
That looks like
A back door into Hades

And I know the streets
Where the blind men wear crowns
And IÕve lost all my friends
To beinÕ crazy

But I found an east cost girl
That IÕll never forget
ÔCuz she letÕs me win
So take your California world
That never seems to quit
And it wonÕt let you win

IÕve been poor as a thief
I got laid out some nights
And all the good drugs
Made me lazy

When I stole a seat
In her dance-song-soul-eyes
I was still in retreat
From the hazinÕ

But I found an east cost girl
That IÕll never forget
ÔCuz she letÕs me win
So take your California world
That never seems to quit
And it wonÕt let you win
