FILE UNDER: ALTERNATIVE / ELECTRONICA

Here’s the final Blastcorp release, Goodbye. It’s time for me let go of this Blastcorp project. Call it creative differences, I guess between me and myself… A decade is a long time. It’s been such a schizophrenic ride, from glitch noise to ambient calmness, from washing machine music to acoustic lovesongs. From my old Akai sampler and scratched CD’s, to the super-futuristic Monome, via guitar, harp and becoming brave enough to sing. I’ve played some crazy gigs, from Arnhem Land to Japan: on beaches, in loungerooms, sock shops, underground tunnels, garages, botanic gardens, cement bunkers, deluxe theatres and plenty of skanky pubs. Its made me so happy, so many times and I want to share all these songs rather than let them hide away on my hard drive.

This album is in four sections, it’s really more like four separate EP’s with 5 songs each.

1-5: Electronic Lovesongs
6-10: Dancefloor Action
11-15: Processed Ambience
16-20: Acoustic Sketches

I’ve never done a thank you list before, so now seems like a pretty fitting time. I used to think I just made music for myself, but it’s not true. I made this for you. Thanks for listening, I’m honored. Without everyone below I would have never been bothered.

Live blastcorp bandmates: Dr. Mike, Byron, Francis

Collaborators: Pippa & Richie, Justin Mullins, Dsico, Sarah Bock, Snapsuit

People who believed in me: Deb, Gretchen, Roddy, Gemma, Mark, Ruben, Genki, Valissa, Brandon and Mollie.

My teachers: Adrian (Guitar), Harumi (Harp) and Marineboy (Sampler and Protools)

And all the people who helped along the way: Happy Yess, all at Elefant Traks, Music NT, Soundsummit, fbi, 2SER, Lari Gadza, Levins, Cincos, Fumi Yagi, Shaka-Itchi, Sub Bass Snarl, Matt Levinson, Frigid, Triple J, Browns Mart, Vaughton/Newy crew, Darwin High, Amy Brand, Nickamc, Holty, Cal, Simmo, James Mangohig, Monkeymarc, Kongo crew, Discobeans, Analog Transmission, Mark Harwood, CDU, Clan Analogue, all my students, all the bands I’ve played with and everyone that came to shows or bought albums.

I’m not sure what’s next, but expect a new project soon…
Big Love
Kris

Track Name: goodbye
cut me loose and turn away
and tell yourself that it's ok
just run away and don't explain
your head, your heart, your hopes, your brain

no matter how hard it try
i can't believe you never said goodbye

these sleepless night still punish me
and all the things i once believed

no matter how hard it try
i can't believe you never said goodbye
Track Name: violets
i saw the silence
you wore violets

and like before
you can't ignore
the satellites

or stars above
cause your love
will hypnotise
and hold me here

i horde your kindness
you wore violets

and like before
you can't ignore
the satellites

or stars above
cause your love
will hypnotise
and hold me here
Track Name: if i could change you
if i could change you
if i could blame you
as i explained you
said you cared

and now i see you
i still can't see through
everything you
had prepared
Track Name: dismantle
dismantled my doubts
built promises out of
fading disgrace
now all replaced

tiny things transmit
now we finally fit in
into place
there's nothing i'd erase

unfolded my dreams
and now it seems that
i don't need to persuade
you that we've got it made
Track Name: one day
all i did was let you fade away
so i make this promise to you today

one day you'll know
that i still miss you so
one day you'll see

one day you'll know
that wherever you may go
my prayers will be
with you

a million things that i'll never say
my regrets are gone its ok cause

one day you'll know
that i still miss you so
one day you'll see

one day you'll know
that wherever you may go
my prayers will be
with you
Track Name: keep me safe at night
i guess it's raining now
i guess you've found somehow
to say
to make
amends

and through the winter's chill
i wonder if you will
understand
or hold my hand
or run and hide
or keep me safe at night
Track Name: believe
so if this city falls
and buries us all
i'll drift back off to sleep to say to you
please just stay
underneath that table there and pray
for building codes and lemonade
and all the secrets still inside your head
syllables and sentences unsaid

don't fear your frailties
just save your energy
rest and hope and hide and make
sectret treasures into shapes
that shine and glow and sparkle true
just like i believe in you

as dust and cloud and panic rise
gather everything inside
your heart and memorise
the lines that can't disguise
the only thing i ever hoped you know
that i believe in you
Track Name: right from wrong
swapped the things i knew i had to say
for sleepless nights and guilt and disarray
left here trying just to understand
what it was that made me hold your hand

i know you care
and i know you're gone
i know you know what's right from wrong

swapped our secrets for the simple truth
that it's him you're not prepared to lose
and watch my everything disintegrate
into hopes you don't dare contemplate

i know you care
and i know you're gone
i know you know what's right from wrong
and that's why i loved you all along
Track Name: now everything's impossible
and all we swapped was words
that i wish i never heard
that i wish you didn't say
cause what i feel isn't gonna go away

as you make my life unfold
as you talk my dreams dissolve
never felt so cold
now everything's impossible

and friendship feels so fake
when you know that my heart breaks
whenever you're around
cause now i've found

i lost everything i never even had
never wanted anything so bad
nearly died when you said
now everything's impossible
Track Name: disintegrate
in one breath
the sweetest mess
how could i guess i'd be
still thinking like i was fifteen
tangled up in a such a state
when i see you i disintegrate

and you know
that's the way love goes
but i know you'd see
that this meant everything to me
but somehow i survived
i wonder when i'll realise
that i wouldn't dare to choose
cause i've got everything to lose
tangled up in such a state
when i see you i disintegrate
