Lyrics

The Dynacord King

Tale the staircase by the chapel
to our rehearsal space
The Kings Court with a drum kit
the SG and a six string bass

And the sisters didn’t mind
The sisters didn’t mind
So generous and kind
with love in their hearts

It’s been so long now
Hail to the Dynacord King
I left the keys in the mailbox
when we moved from Terrapin

And when the magic happened
Music dancing in the air
Traffic jams in Bangkok
above the rim-shots on the snare

And the sisters didn’t mind
The sisters didn’t mind
So generous and kind
with love in their hearts

This is for the friendship
I somehow thought would stay
This is for the music
the homemade speakers and tape delay

Moving from minor to major
going for the one
made me forget
The Dynacord King

It’s been so long now
Here’s to the Dynacord King
If he’s still out there
please let him in

The Dynacord King
let him in
The Dynacord King

Story

A wistful look at youth and days spent making music with friends in the smallest of rooms, garages and even a french nunnery. It’s all true! Influences from both Big Star and Robert Wyatt.

A pretty tune, teetering on the edge of something seedier and more psychedelic.
