Dateroll 03:54
I sit here in anguish all sad and distraught, As I tear off the last leaf of dateroll you brought, And a brown butterfly flies my mind to a thought, This was on curiosity show. Then shadows cloud my thoughts as I, Lament and ponder reasons why, Your destiny I won't defy I always let you go. [Chorus] I always let you go, And I'm down to my last leaf of dateroll you know, And I don't know why its always my Turn to go When I run out of dateroll you know Unrelenting dementing lamenting, Inventing excuses in this place I'm renting Emotional denting, still venting, repenting Because I let you go [Chorus] .... So now you're at the top of the map, That I'll tear from the back of this door to wrap, One final little chunk of crap, Just ran out of dateroll you know [Chorus x2]


This is an EP by a band originally called, 'unknown artists'. The Apple juggernaut steamrolled our band name when itunes came out by attributing this to a description of uncategorised songs. So we had to change to Effluvium for publishing purposes. If we had lots of money and lawyers, we would have maybe managed to retain our name.
On the other hand, anonymity was a huge part of our band name.
The Irony is that some other band called themselves, "Effluvium" several years later and our songs have mistakenly been associated with them in some google searches.

We are largely anonymous, and mostly dead. Proceeds to go to Widowed family for one member, suicide prevention for another member, and an undisclosed disease research for another member. But mostly the wife and kid of uninsured mate who is a legend but we lost him. Buy the album for someone else and tell them to too. ... more
