ivet
unhinged TRAFFIC
she screams from the traffic in her head
lying naked in her bed
foot in the face comes last
kick in the mouth is worth
two in the ass
it hit her fast
my way burns
my way bleeds
my way's cracked and now
all i do is peel
my way please
she screams from the trouble in her heart
while all i do is
rip her flesh and pull her hair
she screams from the traffic in her hands
bloodless veins in all their twisted strands
she makes a stand
my way burns
my way bleeds
my way's cracked and now
all i do is peel
my way please
there's no saftey in dreams
come again

ALLIGATOR
yesterday so far away
might as well be
last year for all i care
blow the whistle on my sad state
whilst i curse the reasons that you're here
babada..the whistle blows and...babada
you're the reason that i can't sleep
girl you make the smile fade
fix the whole up
rain gets in while you
break the promises you made for us
must have missed your master class
one million ways to skin a cat
bite my tongue these past two years
just to get my chance at bat
you threw me out
don't throw me out
how to get up
caress your scales
spend your life underground
you may never come down
bare your teeth underground
i may never come down

unhinged ivet is frank silver, mike roberts, sam papa, and mark grabowski

i know all of these guys pretty well...when i saw the movie almost famous i cried because it reminded me of them.

i was a crazed groupie for awhile but now i think at least frank realizes that he can have a friend in me. my first real boyfriend, not makeout buddy, was a result of my liking of the band ivet. actually my liking of the band ivet was a result of him but that's a long story.

some day soon these boys will be famous. i wonder how long it will take frank to forget me.

unhinged SHELLY
woke up in the same old dirty sheets
trade in my corduroys for pleats
wash down your milk with a glass of bleach
just in time to practice what i preach
laid down in the same old tired bed
forgotten thoughts fill my simple head
appraise my value i thee wed
it's hard to wait until your dead
(bury me alive)
i know best i must show you
the truth comes out after awhile
it shines right through this bitter smile
all for a hump she'd walk a mile
one step ahead of the current style
but i fall down there in the end
i guess i'm not what i pretend
self righteous version of your friend
just one less birthday card to send and
i know best i must show you

frank silver, ivet

FAILURE BOY
Why smash your head on pot and pans
you've got it all right in your hands
can't paint the world with colored crayons
ashamed i can't meet my own demands
but i had to try you understand
had to prove that i'm a man
such shakey legs on which i stand today
losing all ability to use these tools in front of me
i squint my eyes and try to see their way
to rid myself of vice and grip
and powder from my nose to lip
this brace to stop my spine from slip
death of a sailor ocean drip
practicing for judgement day
i never made it past the clay
soiled spirit missing in the mail
it only hurts when i think about it
it only hurts when i go without i
it's my crutch yeah it's my cane
i fail
cleanse the fever from my head
come on drag deeper down instead
the inspiration's finally dead
a monument laid of my bed

frank silver, ivet

no reason did you go to their concert, unhinged? 030602
...
unhinged yep

it was pretty awesome hearing them play on that big of a stage.

but, i think it may have been a bad idea on some other levels. *shrugs* i think i am ready to leave that scene for awhile. more than ready actually.

nobody let's go when they should. i've known it was coming for months but it still a shock to the system. all those good times; firmly placed in the past. i hope you find somewhere else to go.

what a fucking shame. now that i finally have three cds to put in my disc changer i'll never hear you live again.

sahba The Ataris - Boys of Summer


Nobody on the road
Nobody on the beach
I feel it in the air
The summer's out of reach
Empty lake, empty streets
The sun goes down alone
I'm drivin' by your house
Though I know you're not at home

But I can see you-
Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
You got your hair combed back and your sunglasses on, baby
And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

I never will forget those nights
I wonder if it was a dream
Remember how you made me crazy?
Remember how I made you scream
Now I don't understand what happened to our love
But babe, when I get you back
I'm gonna show you what I'm made of

I can see you-
Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
I see you walkin' real slow and you're smilin' at everyone
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

Out on the road today, I saw a BLACK FLAG sticker on a Cadillac
A little voice Inside my head said, "Don't look back. You can never look back."
I thought I knew what love was
What did I know?
Those days are gone forever
I should just let them go but-

I can see you-
Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
You got that top pulled down and that radio on, baby
And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

I can see you-
Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
You got that hair slicked back and those Wayfarers on, baby
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

unhinged it's been seven years. and the last time i heard you guys was over three years ago, but i still rock out to you. i've been listening to failure_boy and sickhouse all night. if i would have known how much you guys were spoiling me, i might have gone to less shows.


i probably would have gone to more. *smilessowidelyithurts*

do you know how really actually fucking rare it is to hear two les paul customs with marshall stacks...TWO....on a local music scene?

and now everything else just sounds pansy ass. i haven't been able to feed my rock addiction since i moved and you guys busted up. maybe someday i'll have the balls to get up my own band.

it seriously was those les paul customs with marshall stacks tuned all fucked up on the heavy channel that kept me mildly sane through all the petty bullshit of music school. fuck_bach and juries and music_theory. fuck counterpoint and aural_theory and playing 19th century symphonic lit with a chamber orchestra barely big enough to handle mozart. fuck prima_donna boardman violinists and getting fucked on chairs til my last semester and playing three octaves of all major minor scales and arpeggios on the goddamn PIANO. i had two les paul customs, NO MOTHERFUCKING PEDALS, in marshall stacks with the rhythm guitar on heavy the whole time in tiny music bars for $5 at the door. the fat low end if it was mixed right made you wanna tear your hair out.

that was my real bachelors in music. the rock and roll education i got in youngstown.

unhinged i walk in my fancy northshore of milwaukee neighborhood these days (i'm a successful violin teacher now) with my 'ivet setlist' playlist blasting in my ipod.

a walk that used to take me 45 min now takes me 30. and i listen to my ivet playlist and chug a glass of water when i get home.


lake bluff to lake to capitol to oakland; walking the northshore as fast as i can to work my anxiety out now that i don't have cheap good rock shows to freak to

unhinged back in the beginning, the vfw halls near sharon_pa , when mike was bald headed and kept his eyes shut when he played.


i thought of it just the other day, when i performed for everyone in my training level at the shambhala center with my eyes shut, and some of the most beautiful notes i've ever played in public came tumbling out.


tonight i went to the center to sit and someone from the level told me everyone was talking about my performance after i left, how it brought tears to peoples' eyes.

and i realized my meditation center is like ivet shows used to be for me back in the day. release, support, love.


to_my_boys that taught me what it really meant to be a musician. i miss you still. all of you.

barrie Not sure how this Blather thing works, and when googling "Ivet" this is one of the few sites that has info. I'm from Youngstown and LOVED this band. I know Mike is in Hurt out of St. Louis. Mark was in Leo for a bit. I heard Frank moved to Harrisburg. Is he still making music?

Any other info?
