We sometimes talk about crankies being a kind of low-tech proto music video. And that’s true! But sadly you can’t share them very easily on social media. So, please to enjoy this newfangled Official Music Video from our latest Baudelaire In Box album, Unquenched, available now at our Bandcamp site!
Our next episode, Episode 9: “Unquenched,” comes to Links Hall in Chicago this October, and features 14 New Songs composed by:
Accompanying crankies designed and illustrated, as always, by Dave BUCHEN
Tickets go on sale in July. Watch this space for updates.

Curtis Eller’s American Circus and New Town Drunks have released four songs from Theater Oobleck’s Baudelaire in a Box series in a beautiful EP designed by Jamie B. Wolcott. Check out the video which contains links on how to get your copy!
Like an angel with eyes of a deer
I’ll come to your room and glide near
Not disturbing the shadow shapes Asleep in the folds of the drapes
I’ll caress your hair like the worms
That play around graves in swarms
And give you kiss after kiss
As cold as the moon in the mist
When the sun bleeds in the dawn
In the place I stood I’ll be gone
But that empty space will be cold
Others will try tenderness
To woo your youthfulness
But I will rule you with fear till you’re old
