Hey again, it's Peter.
Yep, it's that time of year all over again. Another thrown together, quickly produced, loose collection of music from The Entertainment. This time around the carousel, we've got more of the same quality lyrics, instrumentation, and bored singing you've come to know and love, as well as some new features, like whistling. That's right, the worst possible thing to do into a microphone, right here in full, annoying as hell glory! What a value!
It took me about 2 weeks to put this thing together, but that doesn't mean I didn't record a few of these songs literal minutes before releasing the album. Because of how professional I am. I really hope the production isn't too shitty on this thing. It turns out that producing music is super hard, and I am not very good at it. Not that there's a lot to work with when you record everything on a single track, but still. Hope it's not too bad.
I guess the whole "release a song once per month" thing is out the window. Oh well. I got some advice pretty much right after posting that about waiting until I've got something substantial before releasing anything. So here's the new plan:
Every 4 months until 2018, I'm going to release an EP with at least 4 songs on it. I know, I know, 4 months is far too long to wait for new content from your favorite band, but hey; I write slowly. I need that long to get things together. I mean, it took me that long to make this, and look how that turned out. But honestly, I just need a deadline to help me keep writing new stuff consistently. So look out for my next project, "Untitled Project," coming January 20th, 2017. More or less.
This has gone on way too long.
Thanks

about

Iceman: The Band Massachusetts

Hi! My name is Peter.
This band is called Iceman: The Band. It's a reference to Eugene O'Neill's 1939 play The Iceman Cometh, and it works because to think I'll ever be any good at music is a total pipe dream. Thanks!

Track Name: Song for Tyler
The houses, the hills, and the rivers
Mean nothing to me
They are just the backdrops for every bad thing I can't see

I got my car loaded with gear
Got my radio on
Yeah, I'm headed for the hills
But I won't be gone too long

I won't be gone too long
I won't be gone too long
You know me
And I won't be gone too long

I tried to write a song about the summer
But it didn't go well
I could never get the words right
It all just sounds like hell

But there things will be different
I'll sing the perfect song
Things are gonna change for me
And I won't be gone too long

I won't be gone too long
I won't be gone too long
I'm just a phone call away
And I won't be gone too long

Yeah, I'm on a highway to heaven
The clouds are fluffy and white
And I stop to think how lucky I am
Yeah, my new life starts tonight

I'm gonna meet all new people
Oh, how we'll get along
Things are looking up for me
But I won't be gone too long

I won't be gone too long
I won't be gone too long
I would never lie to you
And I won't be gone too long

And I'll never move on
No, I won't ever move on
You know me
Yeah, I won't be gone too long
Track Name: Tall Paul
WE HAD IT GOOD
WE HAD IT RIGHT
WE HAD EACH OTHER EVERY DAY AND EVERY NIGHT

BUT THEN SOME STRANGER CAME
WALTZING INTO TOWN
AND HE BROUGHT OUR INSTITUTION
CRASHING TO THE GROUND

YEAH TALL PAUL CAME
INTO TOWN
AND HE BURNED THE WHOLE FUCKING PLACE DOWN
YEAH HE BURNED THE WHOLE FUCKING PLACE DOWN

YOU LOOK AT ME
WITH EYES FULL OF DISGUST
AND I'M NOT SURE HOW I WENT ABOUT LOSING YOUR TRUST

YOU TREAT HIM RIGHT
LEAST THAT'S WHAT I HEAR
WHY DON'T YOU JUST POUR THE FUCKING POISON IN MY EAR

YEAH TALL PAUL CAME
INTO TOWN
AND HE BURNED THE WHOLE FUCKING PLACE DOWN
YEAH HE BURNED THE WHOLE FUCKING PLACE DOWN

AND I KNOW THAT PAUL IS BETTER
DO YOU THINK I'M FUCKING BLIND
I'M JUST TRYING TO PUT THE WHOLE GODDAMN THING
OUT OF MY MIND

YEAH TALL PAUL CAME
INTO TOWN
AND HE BURNED THE WHOLE FUCKING PLACE DOWN
YEAH HE BURNED THE WHOLE FUCKING PLACE DOWN
THAT FUCKER PAUL BURNED MY WHOLE LIFE DOWN
Track Name: Carry Me Home
SHE'S COMING FORTH TO CARRY ME HOME
SHE'S COMING FORTH TO CARRY ME HOME
NO MATTER WHAT SHE'LL SAY
I CAN'T TURN AWAY
CAUSE SHE'S COMING FORTH TO CARRY ME HOME

I TOOK A CAB RIDE WITH HER LAST NIGHT
AND I MUST SAY THE MOON WAS A BEAUTIFUL SIGHT
THE WAY IT DANCED ALONG HER GLEAMING HAIR
I JUST COULDN'T HELP BUT STARE

SHE'S COMING FORTH TO CARRY ME HOME
SHE'S COMING FORTH TO CARRY ME HOME
I HAVE NO IDEA WHERE SHE COMES FROM
AND SHE'S COMING FORTH TO CARRY ME HOME

SHE REMEMBERS HOW IT WAS
WAY BACK BEFORE THIS PLACE WENT BUST
SHE HAS NOSTALGIA FOR THE 90s
YEAH SHE REMEMBERS HOW IT WAS

SHE'S COMING FORTH TO CARRY ME HOME
SHE'S COMING FORTH TO CARRY ME HOME
NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO
SHE WON'T PAY ATTENTION TO YOU
CAUSE SHE'S COMING FORTH TO CARRY ME HOME

YEAH
NA NA NA NA NA NA NA
LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA
WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAH
LA DA DA DA DA DA DA DUM
Track Name: Complaining: The Song
Insert stellar opening line right here
Something that really sets the scene and catches the ear
Then fill up the rest of the first verse
With hella rhymes and fucking awesome imagery
Can't forget about that imagery ya'll

And I try so fucking hard
To get it right
But the words don't seem to come out right at all

Songwriting's fucking hard
And I'll complain about it until the day I die
Songwriting's fucking hard
And who the hell do I think I am
To even try

And in my life I listen to the Mountain Goats
Man John Darnielle can really write a song
But when I try to cop his style
I miss it by a mile
And everything I write just seems wrong

And I try so fucking hard
For no reason
For no reason at all

Songwriting's fucking hard
When you hate everything you make
Songwriting's fucking hard
But you've got to keep on writing, keep on moving, keep on improving, no matter what it takes

And I won't include a bridge
Cause I don't want to
So fuck off

Songwriting's fucking hard
And all I do is moan
Songwriting's fucking hard
But no guts no fucking glory
If you don't like it you can just go home
