As the hurricane comes closer You take position on the coast Invitations sent to many Once again, no one shows up but your ghost As the surf begins to pound Flags are raised up on the pier Warnings were sent out for nothing No one even tried to get near Maybe in the sump you'll find the bones of an alligator Maybe in your night you'll come across the dream of Brendan the Navigator As the clouds begin to swirl And the shore is beaten back You can see the eye is near But it's quickly growing black Now the hurricane surrounds you Your boat is anchored in the sand You awaken to a silence That you try to understand Maybe in the sump you'll find the bones of an alligator Maybe in your night you'll come across the dream of Brendan the Navigator

about

The Throats sixth full-length album (meaning it takes up both sides of the cassette). A thinly-conceived concept album about St. Brendan the Navigator. Recorded in 1999 at Little Ease Studios (the basement) on Long Island. Performed and engineered by Michael O'Shaughnessy. Drums on "Brought Home in Summer" by Jim O'Shaughnessy.

The Throats: Martyrs guitarist leaves Long Island for Calabash, North Carolina; starts solo project as the Throats. The lost years follow from 1994-1997. Records three and a half albums; self-destructs, returns to LI, continues recording. Moves to Oregon; issues swan song in 2010. After 15 years, it's enough already. The Throats were Mike O'Shaughnessy.
