Biography

Ted Pappadopoulos, member of Americana forerunners Go To Blazes(Glitterhouse/East Side Digital) and Brendan Devitt, a founding member of Burlington's own legendary "Ninja Custodian" join forces with drummer extraordinaire and "gad about" Simon Plumpton to make up The New Siberians.

Fresh off recording sessions with producer Tom Dube (Richard Thompson, Juliana Hatfield, Marc Cohn) at Hi N Dry in Cambridge MA (Mark Sandman) and One Camp Street/Fort Apache (Pixies, Dinosaur Jr, Lemonheads) Cambridge MA, the New Siberians are playing out in support of their 15 song all original CD.

Rangy rock riffs spiced by saxophones provided by Dana Coley ( Morphine, TWINEMEN ), subtle acoustic songs peddled by the mandolin of Jimmy Ryan ( Mark Spencer, Blood Oranges ) help to define a broad spectrum of influence and accomplishment. The New Siberians live show expands and contracts from 3 members to five to include rhodes piano, sometimes banjo, sometimes two guitar straight rock attack, sometimes all at once. Dancing and drinking is required.

Lyrics

Powder

Written By: Pappadopoulos

It's I had to say upon a grey and snowy day
Only trees sing simple songs about desire
It's like the color went away
Traded for a sleigh and sent to undiscovered countries for an hour

no matter what you do
what's past is taken from you
you need to act as though your words are made of powder

the judge decreed the court to read the part about the troubles
people feed to lovers looking for a battle
one too many lines extending miners down a mine
of metal veins, recycled air and blackened visors

no matter what you do
what's past is slowly taken from you
you need to act as though your words are made of powder

taking solace in a song to do what's right is never wrong
the sin of time abused leaves more to make anew
paint a red rose on your wagon enjoy the promise of companion
only conscience makes us afraid to share our certain fall

no matter what you do
the past is taken from you
you need to act as though your words are made of powder

no matter what you do
the past is slowly taken from you
you need to act as though your words are made of powder

you need to act as though your words are made of powder

Seeds & Stems

Written By: Pappadopoulos/Devitt

Seeds & Stems

take another gatefold off the shelf
sit and listen to it by myself
i can feel it coming on now
i know that it can never be the same

here come the seeds and the stems
again, here they come, here they come
here come the seeds and the stems

used to climb the cemetary wall
chestnut trees, they seemed so tall
beneath my feet the grass is deep and green
and down below the song's the same

here come the seeds and the stems
again, here they come, here they come
here come the seeds and the stems
again, here they come, here they come
and in the end what remains is the path that we take through the seeds and the stems

chasing streetlights over town
take the wheel and spin it 'round
stars above me blink goodbye
precious points of times gone by
in miles and miles of empty sky

here come the seeds and the stems
again, here they come, here they come
here come the seeds and the stems
again, here they come, here they come
and in the end what remains is the path that we take through the land of the seeds and the stems
and in the end what remains is the path that we take through the land of the seeds and the stems
