Photograph & Mall Rat....

It was the winter of 1996 when Chad Gracey, Chad Taylor, Ed Kowalczyk, and I gathered in snow covered Pennsylvania to record demos for the record that would become Secret Samadhi. We set up shop in Columbia, PA, a small river town directly between York and Lancaster. The Churchbox Studio was a fantastic “renovated” Lutheran church that used the pulpit section as the drum riser and the old pew sections were now home to amplifiers and mics. Jay Sorentino was the co-owner and engineer at the studio. He also made sure that the original pipe organ still worked and we were amazed how it sounded on the version of “Ghost” from that session. We cranked out about 15 songs in three days without a stumble. Our magical music machine was still running smooth. “Mall Rat” and “Photograph” are both taken from these demos recorded in PA. When I listen to them again for the first time in 14 years I can remember the smell of the old wood in the recording room and the shape and feel of the neck on the Fender bass that I played.

As our 2009 Holiday Gift we have allowed all FOL Homespun Members access to these two never before released demo recordings. To downlaod these tracks just login to your Friends Of Live Homespun account and download the songs. You can access your account by going to the Live Official Online Store and click on the "Manage Your Account" link at the bottom of the store page. If you do not have your Homespun password you can have a one time login e-mailed to you. Once logged in you can update your password to whatever you like. You can change you password by clicking on the "Edit" link in your account.

Below is a quick link to the Homespun Login page.

I hope you can listen to these songs and enjoy them for what they really are, a piece of great Live history.

My best to each and everyone of you,

Patrick Dahlheimer



Believe it or not, Live fans of the Freaks board...

Well yes. But there's something else in there too.

Or it may be that I'm just sort of whiny and depressed lately Razz

So much hate
Since you cut me down
So much waste
For such a tired town chocked full of grace
Talkin’ pound for pound
Love tired and chaste

Photograph everything
From sea to the salt and back to sea
Photograph everyone
‘til the man gets high
And the mirrors bleed

So much hate
Since you cut me down
So long to wait
For such a tired town
Chocked full of grace

Photograph everything
From sea to the salt and back to sea
Photograph everyone
‘til the man gets high
And the mirrors bleed

I know you’re waiting for me to come undone
Should you fall down
I’ll make it clear
Should you follow
And change the world

Photograph everything
From sea to the salt and back to sea
Photograph everyone
‘til the man gets high
And the mirrors bleed

So much hate
Since you cut me down
So long to wait
For such a tired town
Chocked full of grace
Love tired and chaste

Mall Rat

These children register false names
These lovers play all these head games
And on his porch he has a swing
If it's quiet he can't hear a damn thing

We got a mall rat who is kept in the kitchen now
We got a jack in the box
And in his twilight while he collects his pension
He's gonna raise us all up. Up.

These children don't have a needle
Just a city hall with a dome
And the people just see him on his back alone
Somebody please, please take him home

We got a mall rat who is kept in the kitchen now
We got a jack in the box
And in his twilight while he collects his pension
He's gonna raise us all up

We got a mall rat who is kept in the hallway
We got a jack in the box
And in his twilight while he collects his pension
He's gonna raise us all up. Up. Yeah, Yeah.

We got a mall rat hey now now now
We got a mall rat hey now now now
We got a mall rat who is kept in the kitchen now
We got a jack in the box
And in his twilight while he collects his pension
He's gonna raise us all up

We got a mall rat hey now now now
We got a mall rat hey now now now

And this is how one of my greatest Live-related curiosities is finally solved. The lyrics to 'Mallrat'. Thanks, Dmi Worship

Can here the heavy influence of Michael Stipe and R.E.M. in Mall Rat. I like them both, had never heard either of them before.

It is not an idiot question. But you are not able to get to know what it is, as only those who have been registered for 2 years and more get access to it
