Things Have Gotten Weird Between Us

it was going so well. then came the guitars, effect pedals, keyboards, drums, radio noise and overwrought vocals making it a bit intense and rather strange. terms like no wave, art rock, industrial, experimental and avant garde got thrown around. then our eyes began to glow and things got weird between us.
