    Compact Disc (CD)

    A musical alchemy creating the steamCRUNK sonic circus experience-- listen and you too can find your sea or street urchin way into the WIREFOREST. These tracks are at once ghoulish, complex, rowdy, anachronistic yet utterly out of time and history, symphonic, heartbreaking, dirge-celebratory and feature: guitars, moustaches, mandolin, clarinet, corset snaps, distant doom-boding drums, melodica, accordion, ukulele, violin, viola, bass...

    Click the button and soon an encoded disc of musical delights will wing its way to you through the non-electronic post!

about

"Musically sophisticated and immensely talented, wildly unusual and diverse in material and presentation, a Dada-esque circus carnival run amuck, and just plain good ‘not-always-so-clean’ fun." - Boston Survival Guide - 2010

"It’s this combination of wit and strength, aided by an imposing physical presence, adoption of eccentric and appealing steampunkery and fearlessly booming voice, that makes Sickert so seductive. He’s a shaman whose cult embraces dancing into the abyss, or at least strutting around the edge for a while.

And now he’s given us the soundtrack. - Marc Levy - 2010

NO REASON JUST BECAUSE
THEY’LL NEVER SEPARATE MYSELF FROM STITCHES OF YOU

THEY DROP DOWN THE END
THEY BUILD THEIR MACHINE GOD
THEY DROP DOWN FROM THE SKY
APES ALL DIE

NO REASON JUST BECAUSE
YOU KNOW THIS PALE HORSE
YOU KNOW BECAUSE YOU'VE COME

Track Name: Off With Her Head!!!
Off With Her HEAD!!!

Off Head
Off Head
Off Head
Off Head

You lied, you said she, was alive
You lied, you said she, was alive

Off Head
Off with her head
Off with her head
Off with her head
Before she goes dead

Think of, the carpenter
the little kids, that pulled you in
Think of, the door mouse
The shrinking house, that held you in

Who said that, who said that, who said that you were invited
Who said that, who said that, who said that you were invited

Off Head
Off with her head
Off with her head
Off with her head
Before she goes dead

Think of, the March Hare
the smoke filled air, that pulled you there
Think of, the slithy toves
the ones that know you’re all alone

Who said that, who said that, who said that you were invited
Who said that, who said that, who said that you were invited

Off Head
Off with her head
Off with her head
Off with her head
Before she goes dead

Off Head
Off with her head
Off with her head
Off with her head
Before she goes dead
