    "The "Almost Grim" cassette is made up of songs that didn't quite make the label for one reason or another. In some cases they were submissions that weren't selected, in others just other songs the bands had laying around, and in some cases a hint of future releases to come."

A complete reworking of the traditional song Darling Cory, originally released by Grimtale Records on their 2014 artist compilation album "Almost Grim" (limited cassette-only release).


Wake up, wake up darling Cory,
Why do you sleep so sound?
The revenue officer is coming,
He's going to tear your small house down.

The first time I saw darling Cory,
She was swimming in the sea.
All these blue birds flying out above her,
Then she turned round and stared at me.

The next time I saw darling Cory,
She rose up from the black.
Her shoulders as white as milk,
And something hid behind her back.

The last time I saw darling Cory,
She was charging down the stairs.
She had powder all over her chin,
And my fingers in her hair.



from Darling Cory, track released March 28, 2014
