about

Inspired by Andreas Tarkovsky's Stalker

lyrics

If You Should Fail

If you should fail in your quest
Come back to earth, come to rest
We’ll wipe the space from your boots, and
Lighten your soul

Hostesses are waiting for you now
Scented with almonds and crème de cacao
With amnesia needles they’ll embrace you
They’ll make you whole

Where you went was just too far
What you tried can’t be done
No one has gone there and truly returned
You’re welcome home

We hope that you’ll find happiness here
That all those troubled dreams will disappear
That you’ll settle down in your place
And cease to roam

about

Illiteratty Vancouver, British Columbia

We play metafolk… meaning, original swing, European cabaret, celtic, rockabilly, a cappella, folk, world, pop, with sharp lyrics and up to five-part vocals.

Our instrumentation is for three to six musicians, and our full complement includes guitar, mandolin, violin, keys/accordion, upright bass and small percussion. Our music is funny, angry, idiosyncratic, intelligent, and extremely varied.
