about

I am an old stagehand and musician. I have worked for many years in various jobs all over the country both as a freelancer and in some full time positions. In 2003 one of the companies I worked for was hired to provide all the labor for "Coventry" so off we went. We spent nearly a month in that town on that land both before and after the show building the venue, setting up the site, building the stage, and setting up all the lights and sound and video and eventually all the band gear. The community of stagehands backstage was a show all on its own. We had various types of lodging. I myself was housed in a ski lodge nearly 45 minutes away but it was very very nice. Since we are all crazy and are used to getting little sleep each night turned into a party. Our house being the largest often became the place everyone came to. One particular night when all the stagehands were there I grabbed my guitar as I always do and started playing some songs that I had written along the way. My co-workers have heard these songs before because well I always play them. One of the guys there had a 4-track recorder and he quickly set it up. One of the songs I played that night was titled "Piss Wall". Its all about the giant wall we built that surrounded the entire corn field turned venue we built to enclose the performance area. This is the only recording that exists of that song.

LYRICS

This is where the hippies piss
Piss wall
Piss wall

This
Oh this they never miss
Piss wall
Piss wall

Oh it's easy going up
And tough coming down
Look out boy
That stuff it's brown
You'll get that poo all over you

Piss Wall

Stretched across the bourbon field
Mile to mile long
Made out of whorehouse scaff
And it was strong

Hippie gotta have two sides
Shit on one and piss on the other
OOh I can't wait to take it down

Piss Wall

This is where the hippies piss
Piss wall
Piss wall

O this
This they never miss
Piss wall
Piss wall


Oh it's easy going up
And tough coming down
Look out boy
That stain it's brown
I think you got poo all over you

Piss Wall

There's new wood
And then there's the Old

Piss Wall

Full of special
Smelly Mold

It's easy going up
And tough coming down
Look out boy
That shit it's brown
You got that poo all stuck to you
