Chrysalide Would you like to make the evening news? Tighten up your wires and your screws Your look is so determined and confused Delicately wipe off all the dust Paint another coat over the rust Shed another tear dear if you must Hold on to me chrysalide Has your coveted insecticide Already touched your mind Hold on to me chrysalide Does the turning give you butterflies What have you left behind Hold onto me chrysalide In a dream I take you home tonight Frolicking in the sky Your well adjusted harness is secure Your well adjusted mentally obscure Beautiful, misguided and demure High upon the ledge you seem alight Standing graceful tall into the night Ready to employ eternal flight

This Weather's Better For Velvet Clothes Monday, a perfect day For taking pictures of the clouds She left her green beret On the bus we took to town Nose rings and pretty things Gathered in a sari shop Her eyes were so surprised When I stopped breathing When you're hoping it rains it pours You think you hide it, but girl it shows This weather's better for velvet clothes This weather's better for velvet clothes People love to stare Rose incense in the air I need a bite to eat Help me get back on my feet We left the sari shop For a bowl of be bim bop She smiled in my eyes I really want samosas

Jupiter In the morning when I Heard you calling as I Watched the fountain blowing Up to the sky Sparkling we come down Making only a sound Touch the ground and I know I’m never calling you again Out of breath and out of What is left beside us? Lying here to guide us My astrolabe Search the Heavens again Trying to recall when You were there and I know I’m never calling you again The spot on your lung is pneumonia The spot on your heart is from her The storm in your head Is why they call you Jupiter

Velvet And Corduroy Velvet and corduroy Sharing an Almond-Joy Glaring she walks away Seeking another boy He’s so annoyed Ride on the Tilt-a-Whirl She’s just another girl Wishing she’d spent her last Token on lemonade She’s so afraid What’s a person to do When the one next to you Is coming unglued? “Alive, Alive”, he slurred, “See the Two Headed Squirrel. Come see the Frozen Girl Before she melts away On this Saturday.” Their cotton candy’s blue Giggling as they chew Consuming all that is left In a Sapphic way Then they run away What’s a person to do When there’s one next to you …….. Who’s coming unglued? Velvet and corduroy Another Almond-Joy Glaring she walks away Seeking another boy He’s so annoyed

Shampoo Pretty little horses sound real fine The songs they play Are in tune The King has played the wrong chess piece this time Queen’s knight takes pawn You lose As you lie awake the Sandman said “Pray I’ll comfort you.” It’s true There it comes, there it goes Old enough, enough to know Let it go Leave it up to me to shape your mind It will wash away With shampoo

Silly Girl I know a girl who likes to talk in riddles Rolling among the flowers she plays in the pouring rain And I know a girl who likes to tell tall stories Spinning you round and round she’ll tell you once again Then she says, “I love you” Nothing could be this real Then he says, “I love you and I’m gonna show you all the world My silly little girl” I know a girl who wear’s the latest fashion Singing there’s magic potion flowing through her veins I know a girl whose voice is sweet as candy Floating like Sun light through an Eastern window pane

She Falls Down Running up to the wall Sweet dreams of the other side Fingernails in the cracks We start to climb She falls down She falls down When we’re near to the wall We hear something rhythmical It’s just the thing, you’ll see It will be something magical She falls down She falls down Feel so odd and displaced, there’s No more room for my face, just Confrontation and grief, go Over the wall life will be so… When we get to the top All you see will be beautiful Keep your toes in the crags And don’t look back She falls down She falls down

Queen Anne’s Lace She is a sunlight filtered charm She has a rainbow on her arm She’s looking down out of the sky She has a glacier in her eyes I see a different light Through holes in the night So she said She’s wearing bells on every toe She is the one. She’s what you chose She is the Buddah when she laughs She gives you everything you have I see a different light Through holes in the night I touch some Queen Anne’s lace The tears roll down my face I hear the mourning dove Singing a song of love I taste the flavor red Through this thing in my head So she said

about

“ ...in short perfect!”
Mark Barton - The Sunday Experience


“Even better than before! Topnotch!”
DJ Astro - Psychotropic Zone


“I did enjoy this record...here's to hoping they can make it!”
Steven Spoerl - Playground Misnomer


“Magical!”
Jason Barnard - The Strangebrew



“A mainstay of Chicago’s music scene for nigh on two decades, psych popsters The Luck Of Eden Hall show that they have lost none of their touch with this cracking new album. If you’ve never heard them, imagine a more accessible version of Asteroid No. 4 or The Brian Jonestown Massacre in that they mix dense guitar sounds with trippy vocals and Keith Moon-like drum fills. This works to best effect on the brilliantly named ‘This Weather Is Better For Velvet Clothes’, which has a tune your postie could whistle (not entirely sure what they’d make of the incendiary guitar solo, though). Butterfly Revolutions loses its way a little in the middle (the band are obviously on nodding terms with early ’70s Floyd and some rather nasty grunge acts), but is redeemed by The Three O’Clock-esque ‘She Falls Down’ and the finale, ‘Queen Anne’s Lace’, a wonderful slice of mellow psych. ”
Ashley Norris - Shindig!
