Snapper was directly influenced by My Bloody Valentine’s recently released Glider EP, particularly the song Soon, which we were very into at the time. Mike and I did a different version of this in 1991 that we scrapped at the time, but later used for a pro-shot video with our new band members, David Max, Nick Kramer and Andrew Jackson Shapiro, filmed by Mike’s brother Rich , Mike and a crew. The video, after editing by Annie Ballard and Rich, appeared on MTV’s fledgling website later in the 90’s. We re-recorded this version of Snapper with the full 5 member group in 1992 at producer Kramer’s Noise New Jersey and it is the version that appears on our He Fell Into The Sky album in 1994.


daffodilly petals are in bloom

the moment you walk into the room

and each time that i ask you to come in

your head puts my head into a spin

reaching unknown destinations tonight

ride with me i'll take you out of sight

confusion rules where once was sane

patterns in my brain spell out your name
his could be coming just in time

love you so much it blows my mind

ride with me i'll take you out of sight
