Crankbox (Has Gone Freelance)

We're Dylan and Reed, we're a band from Toronto called Crankbox. We write a song for you every week and post it on Thursday morning!


Ask Crankbox a Thing!  

Crankbox Party 13: Glaciers and Pyramids (Paper Dust) V2.
  (A day late due to Reed’s encounter with the Murder Queen of the Cacodaemons, who banished him briefly to the Acid Pits of Really Bad Hell.)  Recorded with guest percussionist Bob Ben.

I have been waiting a long time to re-record this song.  Those who like it should remember that supporting us on Patreon is remarkably easy and helps us get you a new recording every Thursday (usually).

in-meiner-haut said: Hi guys! I love your song "crooks of my elbows" not only because it is cool music but also because of its topic skin picking. I am the founder of the first skin picking support group in Germany. As a non-native English speaker I do not understand all the lyrics and the transcript on youtube is - so far I can see - full of mistakes. Do you have a written version that you could send me for translation? Or could you take a look at my attempt of transcribing ... which follows in a few minutes?

Hey!  I just took another listen to “Crooks of my Elbows” and transcribed the lyrics more accurately, so if you look at the YouTube page now ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P3aPxNikIcA ) I can guarantee that they’re right.  I can think of two sources for inaccuracy: One, the lyrics were written before the song was recorded.  During the recording, I improvised and modified some lyrics in small ways, so that they didn’t quite match the written version from earlier.  Two, the grammar and punctuation is deliberately improper for style purposes; let me know if you still have trouble understanding the updated version and I will get back to you! —Dylan
