about

Uncle Oakland, California

born out of a warehouse, force-fed a steady diet of folk, country and honest rock n roll.

a cross-stitch of influences carefully constructed, then torn apart to surprising and heart-felt results.

UNCLE is rasping, hard-driving gospel here to save your mortal soul.

Track Name: Pretty Head
you listen to me
just walk on by
there's nothin to see
but a radio stuck on seek,
guided by songs
i can't repeat
too smart to listen
too stupid to speak
and i swear all the neighbors
are out to get me
//
everyone's always lookin
for a show, but ain't no one
who wants to go
chasin rails of tnt
killin off whole racks
of glycerine, now who's
gonna light yer cigarette
and blow you and me
to smithereens?
//
sick mind / trapped
in a pretty head
sick mind / trapped
in a pretty head
//
now's the time
to let the hammer swing
tear the ceiling from the beams
smash the walls in
flood the hallways,
you'll see these are measures
taken precautionary
//
sick mind / trapped
in a pretty head
sick mind / trapped
in a pretty head
//
oh sorry i can't stay
no it's cool, don't worry
about it it's getting late
i'll call you tomorrow
or next week maybe
i'll see you in the city
if you don't hear from me
quit yer worry
i'll be here waiting
i'll be here waiting
Track Name: New Life
boarded up a greyhound bus she did
for californ-i-o to start a new life, new life
//
weren't no visions of savin her soul
just running away from the ol' dustbowl
to a new life, new life
//
fell in love with a cherokee boy,
he was a good man, but daddy said no
you won't be his wife, be his wife
what am i gonna do
with this new life?
//
all of life was so hard
fingers worked to the bone
no room for dreamin
gotta find a home
//
share-croppin since the day she was born
til a man said come to california, baby
get a new life, new life
what am i gonna do
with this new life?
//
left her with babies, out on the town
other women and liquor bringing her down
is this my new life, my new life
what am i gonna do, with this new life?
//
all of life was so hard
fingers worked to the bone
no room for dreamin
gotta find a home
//
boarded up a greyhound bus she did
for californ-i-o to start a new life, new life
