animoog app on my phone is that annoying synth. big ups to the scholastic rhyming dictionary, ruby and my old truck for taking me to the mountains to write and record something so trite.


readin blake wit no brakes
break me off a piece of that
cake, drake
talk like a baller, really a fake
flake, Jake flow more water than the great lakes
make a crack in the system
rake in rays at the bay for babe's sake
do the saint louis shake
on the low like a snake
or a stake for bloodsuckers eatin all steak
take what you need, rest and then wake
dream of escape routes when we
wit backaches & beefcakes
i'm eatin vegan cheesecake
at a clambake
wit a cupcake
back to the lab wit my lads by daybreak
so much music we got earaches
make the bass pound like an
holiday fruitcake
and a too limp handshake
got a headache from all this mistaken heartbreak
intake wisdom
jailbreak freedom
keepsakes, keep em
for Pete and Pete's sake, beat em, drink their milkshake
make a mistake
change yr namesake
as soon as the newsbreaks
everything's opaque
this is an outbreak
i made you a pancake
you asked for a remake
she's big as a shortcake
everyone their own snowflake
everyday, belly ache
going away birthday cake
always on a coffee break
or at home watchin double take
yeah everything's give and take
not everythinng's make or break
you can take but dont overtake
rappers like to patty cake
i'm more like a rattlesnake
but still got the shake n bake
you give me a stomachache
like burgers from Steak n Shake
man, i need to take a break
but now im so wide awake
do good for goodness sake
so can you gimme a break?
ive rarely jumped in the lake
we drove out east
got used to this place
one long prose piece
life with roosterjake

Rooster Jake Cohen performed solo as Barely Free in a set of the sort of music he might have as part of the beat for the hip- hop version of the outfit. And there was something great about seeing a guy wearing a Larry Bird jersey, a Moog hat, jean shorts and oddly patterned leggings manipulating samples, operating what looked like a modular synth and otherwise creating noisy yet melodic atmospheres ... more
