I Need Something I need something I need someone Where do I go? Where can I roam? I need advice And I need someone Why can't you just see when you are in need? How many must struggle? How many must struggle? I drive around I look around I get some sidekicks I look at scroungers But I just can't meet anybody when I'm in need I would rather die Then think that I could never be satisfied Loving any dream Wanting dreams that you don't have that might mean anything You are never satisfied Yell I'm never happy I am not slick I'm not like you Every reaction comes out at you I might be cynical I might be jaded Whatever you said where you still say you need something else I would rather die Then think that I could never be satisfied Loving any dream Wanting dreams that you don't have that might mean anything Please forgive me I need someone I need something Love will change me Love will crush me Sad church faze me Two control that know me Truth won't change me Please don't kiss me And they really they never stop - oh How can it stop the wind from blowing? Love will change me Will you love me? I need someone Please better help me I will change me I need someone Please better help me And they never stop Oh they never stop There is no such thing for you ©Copyright 1977 Skafish Music/BMI

We'll See a Psychiatrist (1975-76) Keep them hiding from me How are you tonight, fine? Walking such a straight line But when mommy goes away The mouse starts to play Off with blue jeans get them off this day When she finds ya' out She screams for help to the psychiatrist and the priest As she kneels down to pray she says We'll see a psychiatrist We'll hear what he has to say - oh You need some advice today He knows the proper therapy You've been hiding from me and crying sad Do you think that you are evil, strange and bad? Close your eyes make a wish Could you predict the braziers? As she swears you're all wrong It made it so hard for me to be strong But just a short time now Locked in your bedroom for too-too long We'll see a psychiatrist We'll hear what he has to say - oh You need some advice right away He knows the proper therapy Beat me black Please be cruel Spoon feed me With just yahoo-hoo-hoo-hoo! Who's there? Who's there? Who's there? Who's there? I wanna go home Who's there? Who's there? Who's there? Who's there? Who's there? Who's there? Who's there? We'll see a psychiatrist We'll hear what he has to say - oh You need some advice right away He knows the proper therapy Another couple of minutes Sometimes they fucking cut it off... ©Copyright 1976 Skafish Music/BMI

Five O'clock Face You're never happy when you're alone Just love to be with your husband Tom He shelters and gently smothers you Relaxing in a cheerful country home You both work together preserving your love Beginning to mellow with age All you ask of each other is lasting security Praying to that man above Strong Mr. Cleaver is your sweet dream At five o'clock you watch his face Yes it's a model house and rooms without ceilings When your husband dies Your married friends scatter like flies You'll watch late night movies all alone To sleep with that talking TV on In a big warm bed without your Tom Tom where are you?

I Missed the Prom Last Night I was waiting to receive a follow up date I was waiting all night long and all day So would you say you could ask me now? I would be so glad I missed the prom last night Yesterday's too late today I won't pretend I ever had a date No I won't pretend I was in my bedroom I watched out my window I saw the girl next door leaving with her date On Monday morning I asked her how it went She told me she had fun I missed the prom last night Yesterday's too late today I won't pretend I ever had a date Don't you know I will never know How it feels to radiate and glow When dancing close and being held I will never know Hold your loved one now All the couples walk in They dance they talk and hug Everyone waits to see who just might fall in love If I went I would have dressed nice I would have made you proud I missed the prom last night Yesterday's too late today I won't pretend I ever had a date On that night I sat home alone Everyone else had a date On my hope chest I hoped That someone might come to me But no one came... ©Copyright 1976 Skafish Music/BMI

How you feelin' - tonight? How you feelin'? Get ready say good-bye Say good-bye to your home Don't pretend I prevent a gun or whips now I don't like guns or knives but two hard fists now Binding torture is not what we will give to you It's just like making love but equal drought's here Home invader C'mon that's not what we've been told Like the home I never had Like the home I never had And it makes me feel bad Oh I am impure Oh I am not crying 'Cause I need a home ©Copyright 1976 Skafish Music/BMI Sink or Swim Intro I'm trying to swim above the water but I'm drowning No one will help me I'm sinking Help me, help me to swim I'm drowning I need some right away I'm sinking... ©Copyright 1976 Skafish Music/BMI

Lifelong Friends Don't you know she's alone? Absence of love almost crushed her soul Don't you know she's alone? Not being touched always hurt her so All depression - anti depression It lifts her then drops her Where's her release? Where's her joy? All the time lonely nights And he would call, Hey baby let's grab a bite All the time lonely nights With a man who is cute and bright Ouch idle all day You and her a couple of guys Don't - you will be sure Did she finally find her mate? Don't you know that she would always be your friend? Through thick and thin you had a friend All the years you thought that she would leave you then You had a friend - you have a friend- oh! All depression - anti depression It lifts her then drops her Where's her release? Where's her joy? She would push him away And sort of sour her chance that she's gay She would push him away Maybe you fixed up their crummy date Ouch idle all day You and her a couple of guys Don't - you will be sure Did she finally find a mate? She would dream of your touch A chump with a beer gut couldn't give her much And she would dream of the rest With soft hands holding her caressed Don't you know that she would always be your friend? Through thick and thin you had a friend All the years you thought she only wanted men You had a friend - she would be bi All she knows she didn't want to be just friends Yet you thought that she just wanted him All the years you thought she wouldn't be your friend She wanted you You had a friend ©Copyright 1976 Skafish Music/BMI

about

829 Records’ latest digital release, BOOTLEG 21-35, is the very first official live Skafish album. This recording documents Skafish’s 21st birthday party performance at Ratso’s in Chicago on August 29, 1977. The never-before-released concert spotlights avant-garde musical concepts and an aesthetic vision that began in 1973, and features songs that were mostly composed and first performed throughout the Chicago area in 1976. This music, (along with the groundbreaking tracks from What’s This? 1976-1979), gave birth to the Chicago punk, new wave, alternative, indie, and underground scene, and helped to co-create these art forms internationally.

The bootleg concert consists of 27 total songs, 15 of which are original Skafish compositions that have never been released in any form prior. It showcases the first versions of many underground Skafish classics, like Joan Fan Club, Take It Out On You, I Might Move in Next Door, and We’ll See a Psychiatrist. The album also offers 8 new Skafish-narrated commentary tracks that accurately capture the historical events of that time period.

Skafish chose to release this recording exactly thirty-five years from the day of the original historic concert. BOOTLEG 21-35 showcases the Skafish spirit that was obvious to audiences beginning with his Chicago debut in February 1976. That revolutionary spirit is synonymous with the phenomenal virtuosity, discipline, and the unbridled musical, lyrical, and conceptual iconoclasm identified with Skafish and his band.
