Biography

In 1987 Pops Seriano gathered together a small group of family and confidants. The purpose was to create a musical band that would couple intelligent lyrics with a dedicated dance groove. The result was and is the seven member group, Trap Door.

Trap Door would commit its award winning lyrical topics to three prime subjects, 1.) The disclosure of suppressed or lost information, 2.) The eradication of prejudice by dealing with everything on an individual level, and 3.) Luv.

It is the members of Trap Door themselves that would create the Artwork, newsletters, album covers, costumes and promotions. Always developing something profound or unusual to their genre. Ever vigilant on their research in literature, investigative reports and personal interviews to obtain enough lyrical fuel to ignite a musical conflagration.

Although many superstars like David Bowie, Nina Hagen, and Lene Lovich had preceded Trap Door in their out-of worldly connections, Trap Door was unique in the fact that they were "Naming Names" and trying to expose withheld or newly discovered information. They didn't say they were from Mars; They said, "Maybe we should take a better look at Mars because of the unusual mishaps of Phobos I and II and the Mars Observer, etc.

It is this dedication that has earned Trap Door the friendship of many of today's noted scientists and archeologists such as renowned scholar, Zecheria Sitchin and former aid to NASA and CBS News, Richard C. Hoagland. Trap Door has been featured on RAI Corp. world wide televised special about the future, Punto e a Capo. They have also graced the pages of international magazines such as Unicus and UFO Universe as well as comic books like Hawkman, Vampire Lestadt and Spider-Man.

Musically, Trap Door has attracted the attentions of King Crimson's Warr guitar player, Trey Gunn. Gunn is a guest Chapman Stick player on the group's first release and has also appeared live on a dual bill with the band.

Now in the year 2005 comes Trap Door G. Wiggly, 8 Fold Way, Vectrex, Pyramido, Santo Felice, Wooden Pops, Castron and Trap Door Charmed. Destined to determine a new direction in today's music.

Lyrics

Project Y

Written By: Wiggly

LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND.
ERIC HENRY WANG: PENDANT THEN DROPPED.
TYLER, CONWAY, BARKER, VON POPPEN...
ALL KNEW TOO MUCH; ALL MUST BE STOPPED!

MEN IN BLACK I’M STEPPING BACK.
(IM BACK LIKE SILAS NEWTON)
WHO'S GOING TO FRY ME?
IT'S WATER TIMES THREE.

REALIGN YOUR FOCUS, NOT SOME "HOCUS-POCUS"
LUCRATIVE AND UNCONDITIONED YOU CAN’T
STOP THE VALIDICTION.

Trammel '96

ISSUES A BREATH; AT LAST I'M UNDERSTOOD
A COMING TOGETHER A FALLING APART.
IT'S JUST LIKE FALLING IN LOVE

FIRST WAS THE SPARK IS NOW A FLAME
(YOU CAN'T IGNORE)
HERE COMES THE JOY HERE COMES THE PAIN
(YOU'VE WAITED FOR)

STEEP THE STEW; ERASE THE WALLS,
THIS IS THE HARDEST FALL OF ALL
IT'S JUST LIKE FALLING IN LOVE...

HERE COMES THE NIGHT HERE COMES THE DAY
THE PEACE/WAR.
HERE COMES THE HOPE HERE COMES THE SHAME
(I'VE LIVED IT BEFORE)

(THIS IS THE JOKE, THE JOKE OF IT ALL)

I CAN'T BELIEVE IT'S TRUE..AND WHEN I FALL

HERE COMES THE CHILD AND NOW THE AGED
(SOMEONE TO MISS)
HERE COMES THE LIGHT HERE COMES THE SHADE
(SHADE ME FROM THIS)

Proof

Written By: Wiggly

Got to feel good.

More walks down the street,
Two-hours, skip the beat,
To a meeting that Falcon told him,
Knowing not what would unfold.
Cup of coffee dropped a bone,
Reached down and found the poem, read…
“Suit Land, Suit Land, for the well-dressed man.”
To miles east, EBEs on the sand.

Got to feel good.

We got trouble, big, big trouble,
H. E. Watson comes a dime a dozen.
We got trouble, big, big trouble,
Sit on your ass and watch it double.

Proof, proof, who’s got the proof?
Your stone cold lies are giving me juice.
Proof in the knowledge, sent from above,
Proof in a kingdom and proof in love.
My mind so clean, so fresh and clear,
I've been blind for a thousand years.
