about

BASTARDS-
A 3-Piece DIY recording group from Keokuk IA consisting of Cody Weber, Nalani Proctor, and Alex Crist. Using the least expensive route of "Doing-It-Yourself" we present "A Purpose To Be [EP]" which was written to help raise money for the group Muldoon's Clever Girls, all proceeds will go to helping them replace equipment and get ready for tour.

"A Purpose To Be" was recorded with-

2 Zoom H4N Handy Recorders
2 Shure SM57 Mics
1 V-Tech VT-1040 Mic
1 RadioShack 33-3043 Mic
M-Audio JAMLAB USB

The EP was then Mixed and Mastered using-
Audacity 1.3 BETA FreeWare

To anyone not in the Music/Recording world, we basically made this album using nothing. The software is also Freeware, anyone can get it. Not a penny was spent recording this EP, the Engineer/Production was done all by Alex Crist. All video/web design done by Cody Weber. All DIY.

Track Name: Wet Hands
Waiting for the time to come, to behold a new era
and I blink into the sun as if to see my own reflection

In the light I burn for the night to bring me home again!
As my time is fading faster and faster
The truth is my disaster.
Truth, a true disaster!

And I see the end of worlds! Dripping with noon’s mastication
And as the fear descends below, seeking nothing but deception
Without a recollection!

In the light, I burn for the night to bring me home again!
As my time is fading faster and faster!
The truth is my disaster.
Truth, a true disaster!

And so, it burns! It turns. It molds our hopes and our dreams to the shapes of our nightmares.

Marching to the edge unknown, pressed upon this new vocation
And in the darkness, we’re well known
That our gleaming eyes will take them
Surely will enslave them!

Fighting our way to the light!
Track Name: From Photons To Lazers
I count down to the end as we pass through the glassway
And knowing is half the battle. Always looking to the skyline!
And we see what we have won -- sillhouettes of a broken sun
Change to start ingition. Charge to start the mission!

And as we look down to the end of the hopes
And the count begins while we're bound for worlds unknown!

It's the new evolution, of tricksters and mystiques
Holding on to sollute you for coming through the other side
without a scratch!

And instead of parades, we'll enjoy solitude!

In this space, you will try.
As you breathe, I would die!
Come together, you and I;
Forged upon their lies

It's the new revolution, of robots and their steeds
Resting on the illusion that humans can't see!
Waiting for the moment to strike upon our watchful eyes.

Flying through the stars, we catch explosions in the vines
In this space, you would try
As I breathe, you would die!
Pushed together, pushed aside
at the speed of light

It's the new revolution! It's the new revolution. It's the new evolution!
It's the new revolution! It's the new revolution. It's the new evolution!
It's the new revolution! It's the new revolution!

It's the new revolution! It's the new revolution!
Track Name: Sand Beneath Our Feet, Water To Our Ankles
The breeze behind us, pushing forward
as it fills our lungs with the smoke from yesterday's
Fires in the forest, where we began them!
A dance to redeem our souls and dream away

I look towards the horizon
Grasping for Earth's rotation
As if we were in slow motion
Struggling agsinst gravity.

Pushing forward...

The sun is beating down, threatening your barren chest with an effervescent glow.
And the heat is so intense that our heart's explode to expose the light below

And you win us in the race!
Shoving your light down!
Letting the night embrace our bodies and minds
and hearts so confined!
To the cage you've let out:

Pushing forward...
Keep pushing forward.
We keep pushing forward!
We keep pushing forward.

Break the bonds, the fears we see!
For they are only a nightmare's dream.

Forward, Foreward. Push foreward.
Foreword

The breeze is at our backs
And we'll never look back again!

The past holds nothing for us.

We hold our heads high!
Just hold your head high!
We hold our heads high.
Just hold your head high

We hold our heads high!
Just hold your head high!
We hold our heads high.
Just hold your head high.

We hold our heads high!
Just hold your head.
