get that vinyl son: say10.limitedrun.com/products/505610-great-apes-know-your-saints-split-7

insert hype-up descriptors here. Plain and simple, Great Apes are a new punk band from San Francisco. Minimalism reigns. Play it fast, play it loud, and make it stick. While we all have been or are in an array of more complex projects, this band is founded on pop-sensible simplicity and the notion that music, much like a bio, is often at its finest when it’s spit out intensely, with concision and honesty.

In December of 2011 we recorded seven songs at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, CA. The songs are being split out across three 7"s in the spring of 2012. Labels include Say-10, All-In Vinyl, and Mission Social Club.

Track Name: The Quack and the Leper
we like the damaged ones / the real problems / the fix-me-ups / it's no fun to go numb / when we don't cut up / forge a savior / a false prince / the glass slipper unfilled / dependency catastrophe / the expectations kill / bones crush beneath your venom touch / there's no more / this love has claws / this love has teeth / there is no cure for the morbidly austere / infection spreads the venom seeps / we do the needle poke / the deathbed / prolong the end / the futile habit of belief / that we can make amends / gouge and rip until there's nothing left / tear each other apart / we keep the pulse for fear and loneliness / with barely beating hearts / bones crush beneath your venom touch / there's no more / this love has claws / this love has teeth / there is no cure for the morbidly austere / infection spreads the venom seeps /
Track Name: Class(war) Room
state the facts / it's an economic achievement gap / there's no equality in abject poverty / first things first / they were left behind at birth / taught to fail / while we prevail / it's not a school / it's a prison system / it's class in a room / and they can't bloom / in this darkroom / at home it's hell / no support / no way to quell / and the anguish swells / while we exhale / it's a viscous life / the stem of youth and the knife / 12 grades of strife / while we bloom under warm light / it's not a school / it's a prison system / it's class in a room / and they can't bloom / in this darkroom / we pledge allegiance to greed / to the haves having everything they need / with odds like this the nots won't succeed / the irony of the milk and honey creed / equal opportunity will remain the talk of fools / until every kid in the ghetto has a five star school
