Manus Plere

by Pravada

  • Compact Disc (CD)

    Pravada's debut album. Recorded by Lon Paul Ellrich. Semi limited edition. Manus Plere may have never made it out of Queensize Studio's, laptops, and blue bottomed burned CD's, but we played some fortunate shows around the time we were recording. These shows happened to be judged by music people...it was called a 'band of the battle' or something. In the end, Pravada earned second place. Tipping our hat to the first place outfit, . . We were still ecstatic; (we had no money, no car, furniture, food, or tender touches. So, it was really great.)
    With our prizes, Jesse and I headed down to Echo Park Studios with Lon Paul Ellrich and Mr. Andy Fry to mix and master Manus Plere. We were graciously assisted by Kevin Loyal and the aloof Michael Stucker. One of the prizes was 50 burned copies (blue bottoms)((ugh)) with artwork! So Pravada was ready for a release show. The future was brightening. Some time later Jeb Banner released Manus Plere on his label MFT Records. All of Pravada's members were in Margot and the Nuclear So and So's at the time. The 3 of us were touring so much with MNSS it left little precious time for Pravada. The sands passed through the hour glass, a new Spring has come.
    Now it is time for Pravada to make your lives just a little better.


    We love this album, raw, live (ish) fare share of improv. I get a very natural woody- dry- spacious- analog feeling when I listen to it. Enjoy!

Track Name: One Foot in Front of the Other
One Foot in Front of the Other
By

One foot in front of the other
Dance in the road
You're a hitchhiker

One foot in front of the other
Don't mean you don't fall down
Just lie
They'll never know

Dance in a row
You're a hip shaker
Dance on the grave
You're a roof shaker

One foot in front of the other
Don't mean you don't fall down
Just lie
They'll never know

One foot in front of the other
Dance in the row
You're a street saver

One foot in front of the other
Don't mean you don't fall down
Just lie
They'll never know
Track Name: Judi
Judi

Pravada

Its too easy
Like stealing candy from a baby
Some say growing up and going down
go hand in crown
Hold me like a child
rock steady

Hold on, she's coming around again
She's locked up in her in room
On the phone again
All strung out just like a sucker on mini thins
It won't let you down
Ooh, its dragging me down

Some say Judi
Is so much more than just a groupie
Well, some say growing up and going down
go hand in crown
Hold me like a child
Yet so lovely


Hold on, she's coming around again
She's locked up in your own fucking room again
All strung out just like a sucker on mini thins
I won't let you down
Ooh, its dragging me down

Like a sucker on mini thins

Where you wait your whole damn life
just for one cold night
Where you wait your whole damn life
just for one dark night

Where taking then asking, is falling apart
The seems are now breaking
so why take their heart
Its falling apart
We're taking then asking

Jan Says
There's nothing worse than watching
two kids play kiss face
He dreams in cellophane nightmares
Concrete on his dusty face
I know we're not exactly simpatico

Don't sleep alone tonight
Don't sleep alone tonight

I hope for something uncommon
to rise up out of me
Nowadays he's looking more wisened
I can't believe its free
love in an elevator
that fits just six

Don't sleep alone tonight
Don't at all to night
Track Name: Best Friends
Best Friends
by
Pravada

This is a song for sad and the lonely
This one is for the black and blue
And if you wondered what happened to me
The one who fucked me up was you
And living with it everyday

I am haunted by a photographic memory
and I hear everything you said
So if you ever wondered what happened to me
You climbed inside and fucked my head
And I'm living with it everyday

Best Friends
Having fun at my
Expense

How needs enemies now
Throw me away
Throw you away

Best Friends
who needs enemies now
I got them all in a line

Tiny Miracles

Pravada

You say its all a mystery
I don't wanna know
I don't wanna know
We could have this chemistry
see it in your eyes
What did you decide

Its all,
Every little thing you do
A tiny miracle
Your Wonder Women underu's
A tiny miracle
Every little thing I say
What did you decide

We could be this alchemy
Skin and wine and gold
Half is on the toll
You say its all a mystery
I don't wanna know
I don't wanna know

Its all,
Every little thing you do
A tiny miracle
Your Wonder Women underu's
A tiny miracle
Every little thing I say
What did you decide
Track Name: I Started to Live
I Started to Live
By
Pravada

I started to live
I wanted to give
I started to write his will that day
but I didn't do it
Three tasks on his head
that's what I said
and I'll start running

Hoping there's a better way out of Naptown
There's easier way for us to get that really nice sound
I can't hold you back
only slow you down
So say

I didn't want you
You were a passing distraction
of what I've always hoped to find
No, I didn't want you
you were a first time offender
So, why bother dropping out
You're too delicate

Cut through
in two
what you could not

I know
It's nearly not that different
but I been up and down this street too many times today


I didn't want you
You were a passing distraction
of what I've always hoped to find
No, I didn't want you
you were a first time offender
So, why bother clocking out
You're too delicate
Track Name: End Ever
End Ever
by
Pravada


Its friday night
Two and 25
Everybody's leaving town
When called you up
Said you wanted to be alone
and it real broke me down
that hang up sound

End ever
Your temper
take it out on me
take it out on me
ever ends

When I know
said you wanted to be alone
and it really broker me down
Muscles tight my medicine
Played all night then I sold it to your friends
All you need is
Scotch and iodine
almost 25


End ever
Your temper
take it out on me
take it out on me
ever ends
'
Cause Ever ends
you never sent a letter
or whispered one complete surrender
Your cotton pockets
keeping me from perfect circles

The thing I do
Or say to you
Will cut in two
Me and you
Track Name: Holding Hands
Holding Hands
by
Pravada

Well, it wouldn't be all that strange
For me to turn around and call you names
bitch
Well, it wouldn't all that new
For me to nod my head and laugh at you
again, again girl

Its still a game to me
I'm still throwing hands
My will is fine my will good

Fishing for a line
I'm running away again holding hands
Could it be he's
fishing for a line
In between drinks
when all of your stories are still brand new
Can you tell the story

Well it couldn't be all that new
For me to shake my head no at you
again, again girl
Well I could turn my head and away
Or I lift my nose and sniff away
again, again girl

Its still a game to me
I'm still throwing hands
My will is fine my will good

Fishing for a line
I'm running away again holding hands
Could it be he's
fishing for a line
In between drinks
when all of your stories are still brand new
Can you tell the story
Track Name: Alone in the Afternon
Alone in the Afternoon
by
Pravada

Safe in the borrow
Where they draw wives
A tear stain on the sidewalk
reflecting life

Wait in the burrow
They train up there wives
A tear stain on the sidewalk
reflecting

Hoping wells are running
Later in life
The speed bumps in the sidewalk
but each time I do
I wanna be you

Captured, enraptured
It was all in one night
Wait for the lover
A quarrel, a quarrel to strike
The evening
they're trading the time
The eveningtide is waiting
They're passing the time

Alone in the afternoon
He's thinking the mess he's made
And any old time you chose
to start this whole thing over
Just move back down
I
I know its not the last time
Hoping is forever
I wish its not the last time

Waiting on a lover a quarrel will strike
A halo for a martyr
in cold blooded eyes
Safe in the daytime so safe in light
but each time they do
I long to be true

Alone in the afternoon
We're looking over
this mess we've made
Any old time you chose
to start this whole thing over
Just move back up again

I'll try
I know its not the last time

I wait just one last time

Safe in the daytime
So safer than light
Reach into starry eyes
waiting for plight

Hold
Hold
Holding all night
each time love
hold the rent

River Shouzou
by
Pravada

Since I've left you darling
its only been a constant struggle
but, damn you always stayed

Off a bridge
she's hanging
Did he lie does he still lover her
Jumped and she;s not dead

Mermaid in tank tails
swimming
Is it she
It looks just like her
job ro pay the rwnt

Did he lie
Does he still love her

Damn you always stayed


They're cruising now
as the sun was just setting along shouzou
Yeah I'm taking the scooter and this bottle of vodka

they;re in love
in love but don't know it
The girl with the gun and she shows it
She know its a job
Finishes the job fort them

And now they'll make amends
Try not to pretend
While whiling my hand

And waiting for him
you know she ain;t coming home
Holding my hand

damn you've always stayed

Since I've met you darling
Its only been a constant struggle
but damn you always stayed


since I've come here Meme
Its only been a constant nightmare
but, Damn you always stayed

the price ain't on my head
