about

Atom 4 of Protons and Electrons features the inimitable Nonagon of Chicago, a scrappy and joyous noiserock/post-punk trio whose heart and tenacity have been as inspiring as their songs. A particularly blisteringly and badass set in 2014 that reminded me of everything I loved about making music was the clinching factor for putting together what would become Conan Neutron & the Secret Friends. I'm not saying you can blame them DIRECTLY, but... partial blame, sure. -Conan

Do you remember the time when things moved so slow ?
At the pace of a glacier that's how things would go
We took those Commie trains and we shut them down
A thousand hIghway stars, can you hear the sound?

We live, We live, in a paved age
Asphalt dreams and concrete days

Days like this

This is what we do, and we are really quite fond of it
So let's celebrate now before its turned into a monument
These civilized times, modern marvels of woe
You'd like to stay but you should probably go

We live, We live, in a paved age
Asphalt dreams and concrete days

Conan Neutron: Vocals/Guitar
Tony Ash: Bass
Dale Crover: Drums

Toshi Kasai: Production and Engineering

Recorded November 9th, 2016 at Sound of Sirens
and Mixed at Sound of Sirens in late 2017 by Toshi Kasai

Nonagon - Saffir-Simpson
---
Scene one opens on Bob Lee.
He knows what the blood on his boots means.

Stands up. Throws a hammer on his vows.
Shuts up. Throws his cash in lieu of towel.

The vice side of history holds every card and whores every house.

Take sides, pick a tribe and draw your lines.
Everybody knows they’re in the right.
But then there’s fallacy, hypocrisy,
And confirmation biases.
Collect the dots and shift the range.
I’ll pick my precision.
It’s my side of history.

Son of sinners, too tall.
One inch given. It’s gone.

It’s on our watch.

Stand back. Let them breathe.
Let us breathe.
Let you breathe.

Recorded and mixed by Mat Engstrom and Soren Pedersen
