  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    A past musical project of mine, and the one Professional! Studio! Recording! of my music, which is why it has a price tag on it - recording ain't cheap, and the sound quality is fantastic on these tracks compared to the living room recording quality (you know... intimate! in a "the dishwasher may be audible in the background" way!) of most of my bandcamp offerings.

    Steel Cage Match is 15 tracks of Brooke & John causing trouble, in a low-profile sleeve case sealed with a pharmacy warning label. (See below for more about John, my wonderful guitar-playing pal!) Why is it the same price as the digital album? MY APARTMENT IS OVER-RUN BY THEM. The shipping is kind of intense, though, because alas, that's what it costs.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Steel Cage Match via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

about

Words & Music by Brooke Abbey, 2006.
I wanted to write a sea shanty. But I don't exactly spend all day working on the sea. Or working on anything, really. "Gee," I thought to myself, "what DO I do all day?" Oh. Oh yeah.

My mother wishes to note that she has known how to google for years, thank you very much. :)

lyrics

And it's way hey, me lads, click on refresh again A - D A
There might be a new posting by one of your friends D A E7 -
Yes it's way hey, me boys, leave a comment or two A - D A
It's not like you've got something better to do D A E7 A

It's a hard life a-workin' the livejournal trail Am - Em Am
Updating all day and all night without fail Am - Dm Am
If I didn't, I know that you would be a wreck, as Am - Dm Am
You'd never discover what I had for breakfast Dm Am E7 Am

And it's way hey, me lads...

And it's upload the icons, change your colour scheme Am - Em Am
Answer new quizzes, HAUL AWAY at the memes Am - Dm Am
Write a lengthy disclaimer for your profile page Am - Dm Am
Advising discretion for those under age Dm Am E7 Am

And it's way hey, me lads...

And let's bitch 'cause they changed the UI without telling Am - Em Am
My icon's a goat now and it won't check my spelling Am - Dm Am
I don't ask for much, but I'd like to be told Am - Dm Am
When the parent company's parent company's Dm Am
parent company's parent company's Dm Am
parent company's parent company's Dm Am
company's been sold E7 Am

And it's way hey, me lads...

I'm not scared that I'll be found by my employer Am - Em Am
If they fire me I'll get an EFF lawyer Am - Dm Am
But I'm still going to lock all my entries away Am - Dm Am
My mother learned how to use Google today Dm Am E7 Am

And it's way hey, me lads, click on refresh again A - D A
There might be a new posting by one of your friends D A E7 -
Yes it's way hey, me boys, leave a comment or two A - D A
It's not like you've got something better to do D A E7 A
Yeah, you haven't got anything better to do D A E7 A
