Make Me A Pallet Fire On Your Floor / Local Clerics
A new 7" from the ever-excellent punk-rockers Self Defense Family.
Recorded on a tour of Australia a few years back. A fun session with Neil Thomason at Headgap Studios. He was recommended to us on the strength of his old band, Ricaine, but his resume as an engineer is just as impressive.
Our friend Amy Muir (of Fourteen Nights At Sea) blessed us with organ on this one. And that's former Sydney resident/occasional promoter and now Massachusetts homeowner Jessie Maas at the beginning.
One of our members was left by their partner during the tour and the lyrics to 'Pallet Fire' reflect that circumstance. It was nice to sing about someone else's problems for a change. 'Local Clerics' is about as concise and clearheaded as I've managed to be on the topic of small minds. I hadn't revisited the song since the recording but hearing it now I believe it to be among our best.
