Biography

(History of Twice Baked Potato)

Sprouting in 2003, Stuart Sundell-Norlin left his homeland of Marquette, Michigan to escape a city without hairspray, cocoa beans, and comprehensive health insurance. Arriving in the decadent metropolis of Milwaukee, it didn't take him long to befriend Chad Burgess and Matt Misslich while attending one of the city's famous sawdust-swimming and cabinet-making parties. The three quickly became friends and formed a band due to their mutual interest in the study of the migration of alley cats.

In July 1947 a flying saucer named Spudnik crashed near the small town of Elephant Butte (actual town) in New Mexico. Inside, Federal agents discovered a strange tuber-like alien that resembled a Solanum tuberosum (common name: potato.) The starchy starpilot was subjected to countless lab tests, exposing it to high levels of environmentally safe intimate lubricants, which evoked a reaction of unimaginable power.

Inspired by the space-spud experiments, Stuart exposed his new band to dangerous levels of Ginseng, organic slippery elm bark, and a side of hops, mutating them into an unparalleled musical force.

As a result, Stu discovered that he could fold space just by bending his G-string (!) Matt gained the ability to hit a bass note capable of warping lunar orbits, imploding pulsars, and evacuating bowels. With his new powers, Chad could manipulate dolphins and the time continuum with a mere 4/4 with 16ths on the hats.

Alone they were mere carbon based mortals, but together they are the cosmically nubile TWICE BAKED POTATO

Lyrics

Stone

Written By: Stuart Sundell-Norlin, Twice Baked Potato

Hey check me out
I’m made of stone
No broken hearts
No broken bones
If I’m a god in my own universe
Then I’ll never be alone

You can use the waves and end up home

But me I’m still sinking
This tide is as deep as is cold

Hey check out me
I’m made of wood
My body burns
Although I should
Befriend the fire I’m so afraid of...

Well you can use this flame to guide you home

But me I’m still fighting
I’m this torch that you’ve ignited so low.

And it burns me so.

Hey check me out
I’m made of glass
I’m just one pane
So I won’t last
I’m such a delicate configuration
Of sand that the waves once lapped

You can use the waves and end up home

But me I’m still sinking
This tide is as deep as is cold

And it burns me so.

Let Em Shine

Written By: Stuart Sundell-Norlin, Twice Baked Potato

Stuck in the newest phase of the moon
Stars won’t block my view
This time
Let em shine

From the beginning we started to lose
Life is a spectrum full of hues
Let em shine

And I believe that we could have it all
If we just try

Deriving from visions we thought we obtuse
You’ve got the bomb the match the fuse
This time
Let em shine

This carpet we walk on is covered in dew
The colors they paint a song for you
This time
Let em shine

And I believe that we could have it all
If we just try
If we just try

If this conditions’ left you curbside you’ll see
Align the universe with ease
From there on the gutter water makes it way to the sea
Align the universe with ease

If we just try
If we just try
If we just try
If we just try

Marvel Marvel, in this contraption
The flesh is no wall but it’s real for you and for me
And these bolts of electricity
Keep me pumping
Keep me movin’
Keep the beat

Somewhere on my mind is…
Somewhere on my mind is what this is

Harbor Harbor in this reaction
The nerve endings cold but the feeling it still feels the same
And these roots deep in reality
Start to wiggle
Start to stretch
Come awake

Somewhere on my mind is…
Somewhere on my mind is what this is

Eight pounds of grey
Sit on top and control all the plays
Eight pounds of grey

Marvel Marvel in this contraption
The flesh is no wall but it’s real for you and for me
