about

97-SHIKI are four people who make music, with histories in underground, punk, hardcore, rock, experimental music in Chicago and all over the place.

The music is the construct of the four individuals who create its rhythmic, discordant, yet melodic layers. This record is where it all begins. Sounding like a mashup of many of their previous bands, FOURTH ROTOR (Kammy Lee & Douglas Ward), V.REVERSE (Patrick Scott and Douglas), LOCKS, WEATHER, KILL SADIE, MY LAI (Patrick), HEWHOCORRUPTS , KUNG FU RICK (Ryan Durkin) to name a few. It's a band with four strong personalities that all get their ideas out in their driving, pulsing, cutting tunes.

Track Name: Brother
Brother brother what can I do
Competition from above
Lay down and tend to your temper too

Not getting enough
Not getting it
And if you give to get

You said it
I read it
Let's try to forget it
Said it
Track Name: Massachussetts
We all got the message you sent
Right down to the consequence
A bitter hand once said it best
What we're in is all your mess

Right back to the place that we met
You showed us what we tried to forget
This kind of thing is best let go
It's hard to think when all we know

Can't stop this all from happening

What's a promise when
you've got to piece it back together
What's a promise land
It's nothing
Track Name: Firefighter
Here's a thought for a hopeless equation
It's all centered on your social occasion

I don't want none of this surprise
I don't want none of this

Be, a shape or model
Be, the best batch yet
Be, enough or ample
Be... reset

That's when I lost control
That's when I made bad decisions
That's when I had to learn
How to make hard decisions

All I sought was your pointed persuasion
All I got was a year long invasion
Track Name: Disassemble
Hail me
Expected emergency
Take it to me

We stand to weather this together

Help me
My hostilities
Take it to me

I will take it
Take it to sleep with me
I will disassemble

I will shape it
Shape it to fit to me
I will disassemble
Track Name: Hurts My Head
If I had to hold a grudge you would let me do it
If I had to hold you to every word that you said
If there ever was a time to commit it's now
If I had to choose whether to lose it again

It hurts my head

If I had to take a side you would let me do it
If I had to hold you to every word that you said
If there ever was a time to pull back it's now
If I had to choose whether to lose it again
