the History of Boys

by Lacanthrope / Straight Panic

/
  • Cassette + Digital Album

    Split/Collaborative cassette from Lacanthrope (Providence) and Straight Panic (New Orleans)

    Two queer artists tackle the concept of "boy," notions of masculinity, what differentiates sexuality from gender from identity.
    Side A features solo tracks from both artists; the B side is purely collaborative, with both artists providing vocals and electronics to the extended "History of Boys" (in two parts).

    Dark and brooding, equally erotic and violent.

    Audio mastered by Eric Trude (Stress Orphan)

    Pro-dubbed cassette, edition of 51

    Includes unlimited streaming of the History of Boys via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

Redeem code

Track Name: Lacanthrope - Little Deaths in the Family
The Inevitable muscle of you.
An echo returned home to rest upon my jaw.

Yes Father, I shall become a bat.

Seeking walls in the dark.

Dye my hair to look like him.

We all have to learn somehow.
Track Name: Straight Panic - Vampirism
Spoil the rod
to spare the child

Torn twixt austerity protocol
and proletarian revolt

Youth as life
Theft as immortality
Eromenos bled dry
Transmissible hunger
Uncle Nephew Father Son

Hard candy
prys open the jaws
Disassociate predator
Teeth on neck
the History of AIDS

Papillon
Mariposa

Youth as victim
Youth as corruptor
Youth as seduction

Drink of this my blood
and you shall live forever
Track Name: Straight Panic - Lycanthropy
Hair on the palms
In the form of Onan's visage

Young virgin cast out
Left to wander the wilderness
Satiating bestial lust

IT'S IN THE BLOOD
IT'S IN THE SPITTLE
IT'S IN THE SWEAT

Blow buddies at beer bust
in the wolf's den
Youth as target acquired

30 pieces of silver
Purity undone

City park
Full moon
Bestial forms
Howl at the moon
Track Name: the History of Boys, pt. I
A Marble Maw
Fucked and Sated.
Without Wax

Cherubic marble
Masculinity in reverse
Rough hewn into sissy solidarity

Castrati chorus
Teacher fucks the student
A lesson in liquidity

Every phallic weapon
Insecure rage
From stunted masculinity

Don't think about a cock
AR-15 buy one get one free
Don't think about a hole
Carpet bombing mosul
Don't think about a mouth
Mommy's new black eye

Hate the foreigner
But keep your mouth shut

Holy matrimony
With minor exploitation
on the side

The history of boys
those who are desired
abused
summarily denied
mosquito metamorphosis
body and blood
Track Name: the History of Boys, pt. I
Backwards Crime
Youth as originating gender.

Balance it out
Tell me who survived
Bury their memory in me

Never marry
Spread the disease

We couldn't do it without you.
