Slower Loris is the creamy center of a dense gas cloud surrounding an enigma wrapped in joy, and also a creative unit held together with tape and glue that has colored paper bits in it from Halloween. We have a big, loud, warm, prickly-sweet tone and we like to play originals. It's a love thing.

Biography

The band known as Slower Loris is native to South Whidbey Island and has no plans to leave the warm hovels they have dug there. They play original electrical songs, some growling while others are of a more purring nature. Band members all come from nice homes for the most part.

It’s true that this band steals material, adapting these mooched tunes by skinning them and lovingly nailing each one to a block of wood. It is also true that at least one band member has a tail. Some people in the band are unable to count above four, which makes for good solid shedrock music that is wholesome yet wicked, and tangy while remaining curiously sweet. Like a caveman that you have mistakenly invited to a fancy dinner party, once you get over the initial smell you’ll have tons of fun pondering just what is going on and wondering how these people made it this far in life without being eaten by wolves.

Now with 7 members, Slower Loris is poised to eat the world.

Lyrics

Toy Revolution

Written By: Slower Loris

Trapped in my plastic cage... been there too many days
No kids even look at me... What I wouldn’t give to be free

Toy Revolution!

Finally I’m taken home... set free so I can roam
Now I’m on display... hopefully this is where I’ll stay

Toy Revolution!

I wake the next day... my owner takes me out to play
Soon I’m tied to a tree... my owner plans to shoot at me

Toy Revolution!

Desperately trying to escape... I’m rescued by a man in a cape
Together we flee... soon we’ll set the others free!

Toy Revolution!

Dedicated Foe of Evil

Written By: Slower Loris

It’s dangerous out here! Somebody save us!
Oh, mighty Isis
Trouble raining down on people...

Zephyr winds please blow us a champion of
Truth and justice
A dedicated foe of evil!

We’re balanced on a ledge! Stand beside us,
Leonidas
Free my horses and my people!

Even Mighty Mouse will do,
Anybody who won’t tread on me
A dedicated foe of evil!

Triceroclops

Written By: Slower Loris

It could be a dog with the head of bat
stand back, stand back
Fangs like a gator with barbs on its back
did you see that?
I can’t remember the way back to camp
what’s that? what’s that?

Crawling around with its face all exposed
I don’t know, I don’t know
Monsters collide with terrible groans
Don’t let go; where’d you go?
They’re just here to scare you...

--- --- ---

Stolen from bed and taken away
can not fight back
Under the knife in an alien way
what’s that? what’s that?
I lost more than hours and days
think back, think back...

(when I’m)
Crawling around with my face all exposed
I don’t know, I don’t know
Monsters collide with terrible groans
Don’t let go; where’d you go?
They’re just here to scare you...

Tammy Killed Her Dad

Written By: Slower Loris

Tammy killed her dad
She had to now she’s sad
She turned and walked away
The sky was cold and gray.

She watched it on TV
And everything seemed free
She knew it was a sin
But infection had set in.

Nobody would know
The deed would drain her soul
We knew that she was bad
But Tammy killed her dad.

Gibbous

Written By: Slower Loris

All bent over and YELLIN’ AT THE PEOPLE
Why go out when you live in a CATHEDRAL?
TRY! ... to throw my hands in the air
But most days I can’t get mine beyond RIGHT HERE!

THEY TOLD ME I’D GET STUCK THIS WAY...
AND NOW I’M STUCK THIS WAY...
STILL STUCK THIS WAY...
I’m sorry but you’re gonna have to BE A LITTLE LOUDER,
I can’t hear nothin’ after RINGING IN THE TOWER

I told you once, not GONNA SAY AGAIN
I’m not a hunchback, I’m a GIBBOUS PARISIAN
Being bent over makes you LOOK DOWN,
On the other hand look at all the change I found...

...forth and back, forth and back (x2) Esmarelda!
forth and back, forth and back, forth and back...
(and he could play a guitar like ringin’ a bell)

THOSE ARE GARGOYLES, this ain’t Fort Knox
And I’m tired of telling people apart BY THEIR SOCKS
A freak of nature, SURROUNDED BY CLOWNS
A Festival of Fools and I GOT THE CROWN!

THEY TOLD ME I’D GET STUCK THIS WAY...
AND NOW I’M STUCK THIS WAY...
STILL STUCK THIS WAY...

SHE GOT THE LOOKS that make people tipsy
That’s how it is when you’re SWITCHED BY GYPSIES

...forth and back, forth and back (x2) QUASI MOJO!
forth and back, forth and back, forth and back...
SANCTUARY!!!
