Music: You Gotta Be More Like Todd Rokita

(Heart) Rokita Band

We managed to capture a rare performance by the (Heart) Rokita Band, a three piece band from the Greater Lafayette area, at last night’s (October 4th, 2013) Vienna Open Mic.  This bootleg is a censored version due to a request of the employees.  Apparently there were children present.

Don’t worry. Rumor has it that a complete, uncensored, polished studio version will be released soon.

Lyrics:

You’re spectacular, but you gotta be frugal.
You’re beautiful, but you got to be honest.

You gotta be more like Todd Rokita!
Mother fucker don’t never do no wrong!

You always do what’s best for us.
3/5 of the 4th District got your back.

You gotta be more like Todd Rokita!
Mother fucker don’t never do no wrong!

Insidious people write insidious laws.
Don’t worry Congressman, we gerrymandered for the cause.

We should all be more like Todd Rokita!
Mother fucker don’t never do no wrong!

I know. You know. We know. They know.

Basement Recording: One Chair Short, to Spite

Several weeks back we had the great pleasure of hanging out with some friends, making some noise on an old organ, and playing various drawing games. That same night, we recorded a nice jam in the basement by setting our Olympus DM-520 on a chair and stepping away.

The Media Collective is proud to present the resulting audio titled, One Chair Short, to Spite.

Enjoy!
