BEHAVIOR - 375 Images of Angels LP w/download (LUNGS-074)
  John Cage related this anecdote: “One evening I was walking along Hollywood Boulevard, nothing much to do. I stopped and looked in the window of a stationary shop. A mechanized pen was suspended in space in such a way that, as a mechanized roll of paper passed by it, the pen went through the motions of the same penmanship exercises I had learned as a child in the third grade. Centrally placed in the window was an advertisement explaining the mechanical reasons for the perfection of the operation of the suspended mechanical pen. I was fascinated, for everything was going wrong. The pen was tearing the paper to shreds and splattering ink all over the window and on the advertisement, which, nevertheless, remained legible.” 
  This little musing somehow rhymes with the spirit of BEHAVIOR’s '375 Images of Angels,' unique “musical” approach to punk. The very essence of punk is a contemptuous “fuck you” to convention anyway, or at least a troubled groping for new avenues of self creation. There is a simple beauty in deconstruction, in calculated naivety, in messes, in processes and in the plain night air of Los Angeles. '…Angels' dances like a dog shaking off a swim. '...Angels' is as deliberate as it is free. Don’t we all want this dichotomy in our lives? The drive to make our time our own and the permission to chase joy?

Track Name: Dry Swift Horse
She’s walking through the turnstile and she’s doing it again. The trenches in autumn made me think of myself better. The situation is tender and mild, again, not much longer. Unless of course a dry swift horse gives me the room to spit all over your shoes.
Track Name: The Gift
Brushing your hair, lord can’t know what troubles are lying there. A secure connection, lord can’t cut a knot with his cure. Upturned in the light on the road. Lower your left shoulder, a gift of legless time.
Track Name: 78
New technicians, ancient concept, new technicians, electric position. Wants other words to make a place not long after. The world on fire no one could save me but you. This is what you’ll get in naming the flat land.
Track Name: North
Track Name: For Contempt
She wanted an object, she received a routine. Give, receive nothing when the city comes clean. And all the cops are criminals and all us boys are too.
Track Name: Use (Organ Buildup)
Track Name: --
Some new money that starts with a jubilee. “Before we met one another” underneath the looming morning controlling nothing but form. “Before we met one another.” Written for the jaw, written for pelt.
Track Name: Outfit
And then Nikki said “What if we dressed like cops? Think of what we could do. What if we looked like the weather? We could be so clever, repairing braids of rope. Never any messes. Burn the expert body, the weeping lights at the exhibition. So going around cities. Everything’s fine we’ll all just hold hands. It’s like pissing on cherubs. We could be so clever, repairing braids of rope.”
Track Name: For Other People
Turned out of sleep in the peace of prisons. Singing on the marble factory walls. A lot of people suffer from impotence. All the money’s gone. Maybe there was nothing else to do. I’ll come and meet you. To all my lovers and all my friends and all of your lovers and all of your friends. The best of coercion. What kind of things. I make mine.
Track Name: 375 Images of Angels
The bread haunts the chains. The spinal solution. The fact of hunger. Protein, distension, a revisitation, metropolitan allure. She sells them dry paint or the marble in Athens. Thought the image of the robin was a flash of fire. We thought the clue was a solution.
