about

REVEREND SHINE SNAKE OIL Co. enters the studio for the third time, this time to record their first full-length album. SOAPBOX MUSIC in partnership with Ein mangfaldig kar (EMK) will release this first act in the newest gospel by REVEREND SHINE SNAKE OIL Co. The first in the "Anti-" series, 5 of 13 songs recorded live in one day in the old Härlanda prison in Gothenburg, Sweden. The Prison was designed by the architect Gustaf Lindgren and ready for use in 1907. In 1997 it was declared a listed historical building, The last prisoner moved out of the prison in 1997. What better place to explore your feelings of isolation than a cold prison floor. "Spending the weekend and setting up to record this record was a moving experience. I got sick, had fever dreams and was almost tempted to abandon the project. But once we got going we just could not stop. " - Claudius

"These songs that we have selected for you are ones we have carried with us for a few years now. Sharpening there edges we attempted to give them to you as we did night after night at our live shows… But beign the showmen we are, we added just a little bit of extra spice for ya. We brought in a few friends. " - Claudius

The album will be released in two parts. The first act “Anti – Solipsism pt. 1… Creatures” has now been completed. Recorded by Roger Langvik, artwork designed by Jakob Bue, it illustrates the idiosyncrasies and delusions of a mad man lead by his ego and weighted down by his pride.


REVEREND SHINE SNAKE OIL Co. started in 2007 and have since then played over 500 shows in 9 different countries. Originating in New York city, now living Copenhagen this band of characters (The Sandman, Angeryman, Colonel Taz and the Silk City Kid) have formed a unique brand of music, something they refer to as "soapbox music", celebrating the “American Sound” or what some refer to as "roots music". But it does not stop there. There's a distinct guttural sound that gains its power from the primitive and distinct polyrythms of Africa and the Anti-establishmentarianism of youth movements like punk-rock and hip-hop.

The CREATURE

Man is a fragile shape-shifting creature, equally depraved and heroic the creature takes shape… Trampling down the road unrecognizable… Gathering stones along the way…

The loadstone is the font on which sits the kingstone, the stairs to the podium, the bully pulpit, the squackbox… A pillar of strength, Rosicrucian symbols deciphered in song… They crackle over the wire that carries the voice from the bullhorn, amplified by the loudspeaker…It’s a wave, it’s a fever and it draws the disciples nearer. They gather in the cities lead by their demons and dragging their burdens losing all the intimate details of their life along the way….

I was a Candidate, I was a deacon of justice, I sought the truth. I tried to represent my constituency with pragmatic resolute confidence… But oh how fickle is the mob… How quickly they turn, the din of their chatter like the cackling of wenches… How quickly they scatter, leaving you defenseless…

about

REVEREND SHINE SNAKE OIL Co. Copenhagen, Denmark

Primitive & grounded, folk-tales connect seemingly disparate genres into a single curbstone philosophy “SOAP BOX MUSIC”. Converging African polyrhythms with punk-rock dissonance. Combining swing, rock-steady and rhythm & blues… Sarcastic and sentimental; Agitated and serene, they are a throwback to the Negro spirituals and the American folk tradition. ... more

Track Name: The Truth
We are caught in, life’s deception,
truth's abstraction & perception,
moral convenience & aggression.
Fragile, life is a reflection.
It's no secrete, why we do, what we do, when we do....
Lies are simpler than the truth.
We are caught in, life’s deception,
truth's abstraction & perception,

Fragile, life is a reflection.
It's no secrete, why we do, what we do, when we do....
Lies are simpler than the truth.
We are caught in, life’s deception,
truth's abstraction & perception,
Sunspot fade like thoughts in the deep, what do you keep there?
Ghost trails like chalk on concert, memories bittersweet yea
I would never treat you like that....
I would never treat you like that...
You mimic life so shallow in thought no one can drink there.
You lead your friends and family to empty place, nothing can
live there.
In your barren heart, nothing can live there....
You watch as we try to draw water from buckets made of papiermâché.
We all drink the glue that they make anyway....
I would never treat you like that....
I would never treat you like that...
Track Name: Mrs. Brown
Mrs. Brown went to town to buy some
peaches. She was riding with her
knickers hanging down. Mrs Brown
always gets what she pleases. You know
she does when you hear that sound…..
Mrs Brown went to the movies
tomorrow, bought a front seat at the
back, told the fat lady behind her "I can
not see over your hat."
Mrs Brown went round a straight
corner, saw a dead donkey alive, got
out her knife and shot it
And that's the way the dead donkey
died.
Track Name: Hey Now
Hey Now
5 red chameleons waiting on line with a
chicken and a dog named Vern.

Who’s in the bathroom hanging on the wall,
it’s a fly you can barely see. Hey Mr. Fly why
you crawlin on the wall pointing one
thousand eyes at me? Hey… Who you
waiting on Mr. are you lookin for a brand
new home? Why don’t you check Chameleon,
he’s always got an extra room.

All are board if were all-onboard the
absurdity that you will hear. I spoke to
Chameleon just the other day and he made it
abundantly clear. The whole universe is
yours and it’s your domain for the
imaginationagumbolingal doctrine. You
better stop praying for your revolution cause
you gonna get yours in the end…
Track Name: Home
HOME
To all the people suffering I know…
To all the people who can’t get it under control…
And if your wondering where I been all this time…
I’ve been trying to get you off of my mind.
Out in the world lives a simple man…
Trying to feed his family the best that he can.
Keep them safe from all the worlds’ perilous traps…
Government politicians and hypocrites…
To all the people suffering I know…
To all the people who can’t get it under control…
If you’re struggling and the world seems unkind…
Just remember to love yourself and you’ll do just fine.
Women of the world stop where you stand…
You are a rock and Gods gift to a brutal land…
Keep me safe from all of life’s perilous traps.
Love unconditionally and you will get love back.
This is the place that we call HOME…
This is the place where you belong…
