about

Almanac Mountain Exeter, New Hampshire

"Almanac Mountain...creates so much blissful noise in such a confined space it's a wonder he's able to make it all happen by himself."

Christopher Hislop - The Portsmouth Herald


"...feels like a modern Paul Simon — a hefty compliment indeed and one that I would not give lightly. That would be disingenuous and I hate disingenuous a**holes."

Track Name: Spiral Onion Shoots
Fruit of the earth
The rings of Saturn
The epitomizing
Roundness of the sun

My own cranial spheres
And longing stalks
And the humble, breathtaking
Onion Shoots

Spiral in the direction
of each other
Spiral like unlikely lovers

Here we go again
Down winding roads
Through the broad open meadows
Of April green
Of river green
Of bursting forth
Of onion green
Fruit of the Earth
Reach for the sky

Up and out they climb
Nature takes its time
We eat before we should
Not seeing things we could
Track Name: Love Your Food
If I had to pay for every smile and sigh
I would go broke, I would grow sick and die
Losing all my will to share
Cupboards filled with "I don't care"
Love every, love every, love every, love every meal

A cup of indifference, boredom and salt to taste
Ten minutes lost, ten minutes gone to waste
Use your ears and use your eyes
Handiwork denying lies
Love every, love every, love every, love every meal
Track Name: Surry Hospitality
The Ice is everywhere
Demands to be heard
Demands to be felt and seen

Something like wanting
And not wanting
To escape

We flee like happy beasts
To the outskirts of it all
To Surry hospitality
And California dreaming

Visions projected
In bright black and white
On the bare red screen

My own double feature
Or some other creature
You could have fooled me twice

We lie like passengers
To the outskirts of it all
To Surry Hospitality
And California dreaming
Track Name: Manzanita
Someone said
It takes two bullets
To put you down
She was right
Or was it he
I didn't see

Head was down
Staring at the ground
Staring at my feet
Dipped my quill
In the black ink of loss
Once before

Oh Manzanita
Don't say goodbye again
I've hardly got the pen
To write about the sorrow and the shame
Again and again
Manzanita my friend

My dark Corsican love
My creme brulee
My cafe au lait
Gonna go climb a hill
Walk you off
The best that I can

Oh but I'm tired
Uninspired
Staring at my feet
Oh my little apple
You left me at the chapel
Someone throw me up a grapple
I wanna come down

Oh Manzanita
Don't say goodbye again
I've hardly got the pen
To write about the sorrow and the shame
Again and again
Manzanita my friend
After all that we've been through
A part of you apart from you
