Set List

We typically play for the standard 40 minutes of pure fury with a sweet lullaby every once in a while to remind the audience that we love them more than a baby loves it's mother's teet. We typically start with the song "Ladron" followed by "In Virgo" then maybe throw in "Viva Zapata" for all the machos in the audience. We'll probably then stroke you gently with a sweet number like "Light lay Frowning" or "To the Fire, then maybe do "The Hero Released from Fright" to get you back out of your slumber then "The Skies Over Monolith Mountain" to really get the blood in your extremities hot hot hot. Now we have you where we want you. Soaked? Enlarged? I say we hit them with "The Drunken Sun Forever Watches" to make them wonder what the fuck we're all about. Then we might do "The Hide", and "The Pigs are Schemin" to make you remember - then rap it all up with "The Dance of Snakes" or lately we've been ending with a King Buzzo song called Isabella. If you don't know this song then just
