B i o g r a p h y
 (by Andy Kellman)

Never mind digging in the crates — the Avalanches probably just buy them whole, sight unseen, and find a way to bounce off each platter. Eventually morphing into a gang of six merrymakers bent on filtering their all-encompassing record collections through original instrumentation and a great deal of sampling, the Avalanches came from one of the most unlikely places to generate mind-bending dance music — Australia. Perfectly fitting with the band's range, the roots of the crew are in punk. Robbie Chater and Darrin Seltmann were in a couple of short-lived outfits together, most notably the Swinging Monkey Cocks. Gordon McQuilten, Toni Diblasi, and Dexter Fabay eventually joined in on the mess, but they acquired turntables and set their sights on dance music of the sample-based variety, originally leaning on abstract hip hop and naming themselves the Avalanches. Trifekta Records released the Rock City single in 1997, which soon brought the interest of Australian label Modular. With a long-term deal freshly inked, they released the seven-track El Producto EP and polished their outlandish live show, including dates with the Beastie Boys and Public Enemy. Rex issued the Undersea Community EP in 1998, which culled from the band's demo trove. Somewhere along the way, keyboardist James De La Cruz was added to the lineup. An extensive patch of time was spent building Since I Left You, a 60-minute melting pot of the band's collective that sounds like a postcard to anyone who has ever made a record. Released in their native land in late 2000 and preceded by the appetite-whetting Frontier Psychiatrist EP, it received a response from critics and the public that reflected the album's glowing nature. The group even had the blessing of Madonna, who allowed them to sample the bass line to "Holiday" — the first time she okayed such a thing. Beggars Banquet-offshoot XL issued the album in the U.K. in May of 2001; Sire released it in the U.S. in November of the same year.

Is Dexter ill, Is Dexter ill, Is Dexter ill
Is Dexter ill today, Mr. Kirk, Dexter's in school!
I'm afraid he's not, Miss Fishpaw.
Dexter's truancy problem is way out of hand!
The Baltimore County school board has decided to expel
Dexter from the entire public school system!

Oh Mr. Kirk, I'm as upset as you to learn of Dexter's truancy,
But surely, expulsion is not the answer!
I'm afraid expulsion is the only answer!
It's the opinion of the entire staff that Dexter is criminally insane!

That boy needs therapy, psychosomatic,
That boy needs therapy, purely psychosomatic,
That boy needs therapy.
Lie down on the couch. What does that mean?
You're a nut! (You're a nut!) You're crazy in the coconut!
What does that mean? That boy needs therapy.
I'm gonna kill you! That boy needs therapy.
Grab a kazoo, let's have a duel !
Now when I count three…
That, that, that, that, that boy…boy needs therapy.
He was white as a sheet.
And he also made false teeth.

Avalanches is above, business continues below,
Did I ever tell you the story about
Cowboys! Mid, Mid, Midgets, and the Indians, and, Fron, Frontier Psychiatrist.
I... I felt strangely hypnotized.
I was in another world, a world of twenty, twenty thousand girls!
And milk! Rectangles, to an optometrist, the man with the golden eyeball!
And tighten your buttocks, pour juice on your chin!
I promise my girlfriend I'd pick up the violin, violin, violin ...

The Leaves Were Falling

Hi
Motherfucker's gonna fuck with me

Because I'm Me

If she don't love me, what can I do
Just put on my best pair of shoes
Because I'm, I'm me
Because she said
"He's the one that drill the charms
Honey let's go wrong"
I just want to know
What's wrong with me
Be in in love with you

[Camp Lo]
Yeah
9th grade had the [?] jacket
[?], [?] only Django
[?]
That's where my props go
That's where my pops went
See my percentage is a pennant to the planet
Knock it out the ball park, Frankie
I should not tire this tire
To a better love, let the wings spread
It'll always come back, baby
Come back, shellac black, baby
A come back, flat black paint on a Chevy

If she don't love me, what can I do
Just put on my best pair of shoes
Because I'm, I'm me
Because I'm me
Because I'm, I'm me
Because I'm me, I'm me

[Camp Lo]
Never out of tone when I told Pretty Tony
Listen to my tone, you ain't catchin' you a Tony
Award when you running with a shottie
Why you running from us?
Why you messing with us?
We ain't got no guns, we just let the bears witness
The Grizzly, maybe Polar
You ain't ready, you ain't ready 'ready rolled up
Pulling a machete [?]
And let's roll out baby

I just want to know
What's wrong with me

"Watch the shit, it's good"

Wilmoth Houdini :

Danny Brown :
Off this rocker
He's off his rocker
Please Mr officer I only had some vodka
Little marijuana just a few Vicodin
Only reefer swervin' out here while I'm driving
Where your registration, OG license
Because of that interior your bitch wanna ride this
Plate red bold cat, dick got LoJack
White hoes calling and they asking where the dope at
What? Whatever
Modern day Sammy hit I wrote with that Sinatra
All for pasta, spray in her mouth like Binaca
Listening to salsa, rhythm of maracas
M.I.A. on the job sipping in Sri Lanka
I divide and conquer, rolling Willy Wonka
Baby momma wanna suck the dong up at the concert
And they gets no pay like Frank Sinatra bitch
I do this shit my way like Frank Sinatra bitch
Do this shit my way

Wilmoth Houdini :
Ah Frankie Sinatra, ah Frank Sinatra
Frankie me boy don't know
You haven't got the voice to sing calypso

Danny Brown :
I'm so high, you're so high
If I take another sip, then I just might die
Take another sip then I just might lie
Tell her what she wanna hear just to get between them thighs
Underground nigga but on top of the world
Took the bitch for oyster, now my tongue on the pearl
So fuck what you say, do this shit my way
Like Frank Sinatra, bitch, do this shit my way

MF DOOM :
Tanks of vodka, sip slow rocka ock
Writ rhymes since the days with Frankie Crocker rocked
From more stocky stock
Known for his illy right hook to make Rocky block
That's no poppy cock pirate
We can keep it irie, or we can keep it irate
Dilate
We keep it 100
From the heights of Northern Lights
To Southern Comfort, one fifth
Come with that headbanger boogie for that ass
Villain give a bully ten noogies for the cash
Or dash, dip slow on a marathon
Or maybe he gon' sing Calypso like Farrakhan
Or Frank Sinatra mon

Pssss, ha ha
Fuck off, man
Where you been man

[Streetwise (1984) Sample]
I love to fly
It's just, you're alone
With peace and quiet
Nothing around you
But clear, blue sky
No one to hassle you
No one to tell you where to go or what to do
The only bad part about flying
Is having to come back down to the fucking world

[Foxes (1980) Sample]
Just a few minutes past 7:00 in the morning
Hi, I'm Jeff Conzer
And it's time to wake up
I know you feel that it's completely
Wrong
No, but you're ready to wake up, aren't you
Yes, definitely
That's good
'Cause it's going to be a beautiful day today
Temperatures in the mid 70s in the city a little cooler at the beaches
And warmer in the valleys

The Noisy Eater

[Foxes (1980) Sample]
As always
Whah!
Look at it, you gotta wake up
No arguing

It's time to stick your finger in your third eye
And at least wake yourself up
You even have to get your dog awake
It's just time to wake up
Everybody, get up!

Munch! Munch!
Once upon a time, I was a noisy eater

Biz Markie :
I'm hungry, I want something to eat
Something with a crunch and very sweet
Just woke up so you know the scenario
I'm craving cereal like Cheerios
May be forced to drink, I might munch
But what popped in my mind is Captain Crunch
So I went to the kitchen to freak my choice
In my stomach I heard a voice
It said: "Please feed me, my tank is on empty
I'm seeing things, so please don't tempt me"
So I said "okay", and got my bowl
Got my milk and cereal, made sure it was cold
Sat down at the table and said my grace
Because I knew what was about to take place
"Yum yum, eat 'em up", my belly said
The crunches so loud errbody jumped out they bed!

Sample & Biz Markie :
Here come old flat-top, he come grooving up slowly
He got ju-ju eyeballs, he's one holy roller he's got
Crunch!
Did you ever know a noisy eater

Biz Markie :
Well it's lunchtime, and I'm hungry again
I don't know where I should begin
Maybe I'll get some super salmon, mmm that's good
I don't want no chicken, it tastes like wood
But I have to have some chips, ones that crunch
So you can hear me go 'munch, munch, munch'
Some old lady tapped me on the shoulder out of a crowd
And said "Quiet down Biz, you munching too loud!"

[Sample]
Here come old flat-top, he come grooving up slowly
He got ju-ju eyeballs. he's one holy roller
He's got...
Well excuse me, um, um, well excuse me, um
Well excuse me, um, um, well excuse me
Here come old flat-top, he come grooving up slowly
He got ju-ju eyeballs. he's one holy roller
He's got...

Biz Markie :
Quiet down Biz, you munching too loud!
Yum, yum, yum, yum yum

[Sample]
Mmm, that's good!
They all thought I had stopped
And where's the gravy?
No matter!

There is magic in the splendor and desire to surrender (ahh)
Every moment we're together makes me hope it lasts forever
There is magic in the splendor and desire to surrender
There is magic in the splendor and desire to surrender
There is magic in the splendor and desire to surrender

(The Wozard of Iz)
Aaaaaaaaaaah! (Here we go!)
I have been over the rainbow
And I found nothing there
But very thin air
(The Wozard of Iz)
(The Wozard, the Wozard of Iz)

Danny Brown :
My 16's and tail twelves
Dick like water, reals in hell
I sold dope, didn't stack up
And I buy a berth from jail twelve
Gonna easily make my jail bail
Locked up in that jail cell
Writing hoes, dirty laps
Jerking off to my mail well
Man I fuck with white hoes
That be smoking Pall Mall
That be pale with thick tails
Smoke Adderall snort snail trail
I used to rot in stones
Let my nigga fishtail
Now I'm on that mix scale
Not fuckin' with no fish scale (Summertime)
About to get my niggas off the hood
Ballin' hard like you knew we would
Your bitch in my phone and she wish she could
Because she wish she could
Ball so hard like he couldn't fuck for months
Blunt after blunt after blunt after blunt
Pill after pill after pill after pill
Extra pills, extra pills!

Summertime
Aaaaaaah!
One two three
You and me
You and me!
Aaaaaaah!
One two three

Sunshine

And the music that they're making is serious from the heart
It's brand news
It ain't the same old same old like all the stories go

I fell in love for sunshine
From up above, ove, ove
For sunshine
From up above, ove, ove
For, I fell in love

I fell in love
On a sunny day
Then you went away
Turning my blue skies gray
And takin' my sunshine
I fell in love, on a sunny day

Sunshine
Sunshine
Sunshine
From up above

It's just that I got other stuff on my mind these days

Sunshine
Sunshine
Sunshine...

Light Up

What a wonderful sight
It just seems to be right
That there's something to do
For the rich people too
So light up the hall
There's dancing for all

Doo doo doo doo doo
It's a world of fantasy
Doo doo doo doo doo
It's a world of fantasy
Doo doo doo doo doo

Ba ba ba ba ba
It's a world of fantasy
It's a world of
It's a world of fantasy

Kaleidoscope Lovers

At night, when I dream...

Jonathan Donahue :
At night, when I dream
Leaving my body like a bird from a nest I fly
Every chimney and tree
I thought I knew but now I see what all birds see
Inside of their homes
Clear as glass, friends making love like there's no tomorrow
What a wonderful end to my night's worth of sorrow

Jonathan Donahue :
Everywhere you look
Children run like crayon colours into the sun
And in the wind, I can see
One by one, wildflowers dance with me
Oh it's a real swinging scene
Kaleidoscopic lovers melting into another
From a sister to a brother
(Oh, oh, oh see how they turn)

Daughter grows into a mother
And softly turns into the other

Stepkids

Jennifer Herrema :
What would you do for a dollar?
I know you want something to do, my darlin'
Wouldn't you like to have some money to spend?
What would you do with my money now?
Do you see yourself in diamonds
Do you see yourself in diamonds
Probably not (Probably not)
Take it to the store and get a Coke
Or some tall boys, a pack of smokes and a can of spray paint

Jennifer Herrema :
Down by the giant drainpipe
Light firecrackers while we crack cans of beer
And if those boys aren't skating there
Maybe we can paint pentagrams and pot leaves along the walls

Jennifer Herrema :
You fell down, now you should get up
No-one cares that your knees got cut up
After all it's just a little blood
And you don't have nice clothes anyway
You don't have anything that's nice at all
And you need a new asthma inhaler

Down by the giant drainpipe
Light firecrackers while we crack cans of beer
And if those boys aren't skating there
Down by the giant drainpipe
Light firecrackers while we crack cans of beer
And if those boys aren't skating there
Maybe we can paint pentagrams and pot leaves along the walls

I'll see you by the water
We can hang out all night long

Or some tall boys, a pack of smokes and a can of spray paint
Light firecrackers while we crack cans of beer
And if those boys aren't skating there
Down by the giant drainpipe
Light firecrackers while we crack cans of beer
And if those boys aren't skating there
Maybe we can paint

Saturday Night Inside Out

David Berman :
We inaugurate the evening
Just drumming up a little weirdness

It gets late so early now
The waves come in in mountain phases
I'd see fire where it's not supposed to be

I first saw her in a mega store
The day-glow raven born into a free fall

The fulfillment of a 10th grade prophecy
A motel masterpiece

Blind to the branching possibilities
Teardrops were standing in my eyes
Like deer before they bolt

I adored the way she modified my mornings
When I'd wake up in the calm shoals of her bed
Somersaults or smoke in a universe of sleep
Before she slipped into her heritage and disappeared
And she taught me to relight, relight and relight again

Frankie Sinatra (Extended Mix)

Alright guys right
Right over there to the left, where the peoples at
(at the concert)
Watch this shit, it's good
Original song

Ah Frankie Sinatra, ah Frank Sinatra
Frankie me boy don't know
You have the perfect voice to sing calypso (what did they say?)
Ah Frankie Sinatra, ah Frank Sinatra
Ah Frankie Sinatra, ah Frank Sinatra
Frankie me boy don't know
You have the perfect voice to sing calypso (what did they say?)
Ah Frankie Sinatra, ah Frank Sinatra
Ah Frankie Sinatra, ah Frank Sinatra
Frankie me boy don't know
You have the perfect voice to sing calypso (what did they say?)
Ah Frankie Sinatra, ah Frank Sinatra

Danny Brown :
Off this rocker
He's off his rocker
Please Mr officer I only had some vodka
Little marijuana just a few Vicodin
Only reefer swervin' out here while I’m driving
Where your registration, OG license
Because of that interior your bitch wanna ride this
Plate red bold cat, dick got LoJack
White hoes calling and they asking where the dope at
What? Whatever
Modern day Sammy hit I wrote with that Sinatra
All for pasta, spray in her mouth like Binaca
Listening to salsa, rhythm of maracas
M.I.A. on the job sipping in Sri Lanka
I divide and conquer, rolling Willy Wonka
Baby momma wanna suck the dong up at the concert
And they gets no pay like Frank Sinatra bitch
I do this shit my way like Frank Sinatra bitch
Do this shit my way

Ah Frankie Sinatra, ah Frank Sinatra
Frankie me boy don't know
You have the perfect voice to sing calypso (what did they say?)
Frankie me boy don't know
You have the perfect voice to sing calypso

Danny Brown :
I'm so high, you're so high
If I take another sip, then I just might die
Take another sip then I just might lie
Tell her what she wanna hear just to get between them thighs
Underground nigga but on top of the world
Shucked the bitch for oyster, now my tongue on the pearl
So fuck what you say, do this shit my way
Like Frank Sinatra, bitch, do this shit my way

MF DOOM :
Tanks of vodka, sip slow rocka ock
Writ rhymes since the days with Frankie Crocker rock
From more stocky stock
Known for his illy right hook to make Rocky block
That's no poppy cock pirate
We can keep it irie, or we can keep it irate
Dilate
We keep it 100
From the heights of Northern Lights
To Southern Comfort, one fifth
Come with that headbanger boogie for that ass
Villain give a bully ten noogies for the cash
Or dash, dip slow on a marathon
Or maybe he gon' sing Calypso like Farrakhan
Or Frank Sinatra mon

Frankie me boy don't know
You have the perfect voice to sing calypso (what did they say?)
Ah Frankie Sinatra, ah Frank Sinatra
Frankie me boy don't know
You have the perfect voice to sing calypso (what did they say?)
Frankie my boy, I’m sure we'll sell two million copies or more

Let's Cheer

(Electricity EP)

Even when you are standing in one place
You can make your body do many different things
It can be tall, small, wide, narrow
It can wiggle, bend, spread
Twist, bounce, spin, push it
When you hear the music
Many different things you can do with your body

Ever
Wrist, wrist
? wrist

Raise your right hand
And raise it up high
Shake your left hand and touch the sky
Breaking down
?

Up, down

Slow Walking

(Undersea Community EP)

You know what we need more of around here
We need more happy talk

Can you hear it
Hey
There goes my favourite tree
Where's she going
She's leaving me
She found another
To care of her

Birdy
Birdy, birdy
I wish I was with you
In a helicopter
Flying over my old school
Where we were cooler than they ever knew

Slow walking
Sometimes we walk in the park
Most people walking
Ninety-five percent people walking

Birdy
I wish I was with you
Such an easy way to get around

Wake up, sleepy tree
Get off that old birch knee
Get out of bed, you sleepy old tree
It's the first day of spring
Get up, get up
Get up, you silly old tree
Sleeping in on me

Undersea Community

(Undersea Community EP)

歪んだ意識と節くれだった。

溢れる魚とネオンの珊瑚
大人の女と子供の男
透明な音と汚れた御徳
大人の男と子供の女

溢れる魚とネオンの珊瑚
大人の女と子供の男
透明な音と汚れた御徳
大人の男と子供の女

Calling all Aquaphibian crews
歪んだ意識と節くれだった。
Titan Terror Fish
Undersea community

溢れる魚とネオンの珊瑚
大人の女と子供の男
透明な音と汚れた御徳
大人の男と子供の女

Calling all Aquaphibian crews
Titan Terror Fish
Undersea community
Calling all Aquaphibian crews

When the captain of the sailing ship fell in love and married
A beautiful mermaid

Served, of course, in the mother of pearl shells
And then a sea anemone cocktail, followed by oyster liqueurs

Japanese translation:
There were only distorted senses and knotty woods

Plenty of fish and the corals like neon light
Grown woman and young man
Transparent sound and dirty character
Grown man and young woman

Plenty of fish and the corals like neon light
Grown woman and young man
Transparent sound and dirty character
Grown man and young woman
