about

"The Story of the Wreck" is the 7th and penultimate album in Sam Russell & the Harborrats' Blue Moon Bible series of 8 albums. Along with its companion album (and final album of the Blue Moon Bible) "The Waking Hours," this album compiles tracks from all eras of the band to tell the story of a man coming to terms with his past long after he should have done so. Religion and rock n' roll as a placebo for religion are attempted to be reconciled...and the failure to do so is "The Story of the Wreck."

Sam Russell & the Harborrats Seattle, Washington

Sam Russell preaches the gospel of heartbreak and decadence via The Blue Moon Bible, a series of 8 albums showcasing a wide variety of 1950's & 60's-inspired rock n' roll. Doo-wop, garage-rock, folk, soul and everything in-between soundtrack the search to find divinity in the secular, as sung by a failed Christian and his fellow heathens. ... more

Track Name: God Kills the Kittens
GOD KILLS THE KITTENS

God kills the kittens when the boys do something bad
he takes away a little life and makes the girls sad
cause they don’t have a little friend with that they can play
and the boys still wear a smile at the end of the long day

tell me why did why did why did you go away..
why did why did why did you go away..
why did why did why did you go away..
why did why did why did you go away..

God kills the kittens when the boys do something wrong
all alone in their room at night where the girls do not belong
then the kitties disappear right out of little arms
what the boys are doing forces God to do some harm

why did why did why did you go away..
why did why did why did you go away..
why did why did why did you go away..
why did why did why did you go away

God kills the kittens when the boys masturbate
they see a little girl and decide they just can't wait
the girls skip their rope all day reciting every rhyme
about how God, about how God must punish every crime

why did why did why did you go away..
why did why did why did you go away..
why did why did why did you go away..
why did why did why did you go away
Track Name: Make Me Lose Control
recorded in June 2015 at Her Car Studios
