about

The Spreewells Los Angeles, California

The Spreewells make angular energetic music about the modern world. Their name evokes the savage beauty of a certain basketball player and the noble river that flows through a delicious foreign city. They are: Richard Wittman (voice, rhythm guitar), Jeff Gross (lead guitar), Mike Ball (bass), and Ro Meraz (drums). On these recordings, drums were played by Joel Joseph. ... more

How could I forget the asphalt and the sin?
The motorbike or the ways you liked all the times I touched your skin
Garbatella, Tuscolana, Aniene, they're haunted names to me too
Like every road down which we've been....
Track Name: Ghost in the Network
Twenty countries in thirty days
Sighted in Karachi and then Miami
Taking down the imperial networks
Anyone can tell you're from a theater family
And Arlington's on the phone to Foggy Bottom
And man they've got a lot to say
Meanwhile, sir, just a couple of questions
And you'll be on your way

They're all against you - government
They're gonna frame you - which could wreck your plans

Tuning in to the latest revelations
From the corridors of power
From kill orders to plausible denial
Its all just a matter of style
He weaves webs like an orchestra conductor
For adoring fans
Well that one's cute! Do you think you're gonna fuck her?
She's putty in your hands

They're all against you - government
They're gonna frame you - which could wreck your plans

The first global hero of the 21st century
Undone because he likes to ride bareback

They're all against you - government
They're gonna frame you - which could wreck your plans

Find me a couch in the Hindu kush
With a wifi connection that'll actually work
Is that your sister? Well, what's her name?
Ask her if she'd like to meet the ghost in the network
And Langley's on the phone to Foggy Bottom
And man they've got a lot to say
Meanwhile sir, just a couple more questions
And you'll be on your way

They're all against you - g-g-g-government
They're gonna frame you - which could wreck your plans
