  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    5 (+1) track EP from a trilogy of EPs called "Maiden, Mother, Crone". All music and lyrics written, performed, and mixed by Jordan Reyne.
    Live drums by Simon Rippin. Mastered by Stephen Carey of "The Eden House".
    BONUS ITEMS: extra track in digital form, all artwork, thankyou vide and live performance video.

    The "Maiden, Mother Crone" trilogy combines pagan imagery with modern narratives on women. "The Hag", or Crone was once seen as wise, but the elderly today are often simply marginalised or overlooked entirely. The "Crone"'s invisibility however, has a plus side. She can be as political as she likes, and many of her songs are just that. The Crone is more outside the gaze of what is expected of women, compared to the other two figures, so is allowed to speak her mind. It is a voice within her voicelessness , and an identity that she herself can construct.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Maiden, Mother, [CRONE] (EP) via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

about

A story where a politician is invited to a feast by an old woman, but the other guests are mysteriously absent. As he begins to eat lustily, the location and form of the guests is revealed. A song about New Zealand's Prime Minister, John Key, and his "eat the poor" style politics.

lyrics

Dear John, Im writing to extend an invitation.
An opportunity to join us for a feast of food and celebration
Far beyone imagination, of what
you made of them or me, you made us what we are.

Cos you're all heart John.
you're all heart John.

Please take off your shoes and I will welcome you into my home
Oh it might seem kind of lonely till the other guests make themselves known
and thankyou for your commendation of my choices, but there is only one
that would keep you in the style to which you've become acccustomed.

But you're all heart John.
you're all heart John.

Delicacy of flavour, oh it fill the senses, feel it come
in rarity anf favours, all laid out since you were bred and born
and we only get to do this once, cos it's far beyond our means.
Dont let me bore you with the details - I know you want to taste a part of each

Cos, you're all heart John.
you're all heart John.

A moments silence, please.
To thank our guests and bless this food that's only yours to eat.
Oh and their names are written underneath each plate
each dish, each tasteless grave
but yes, you like the flavour
and you wont change.

you're all heart John.
you're all heart John.
you're all heart John.

There but for the grace of god goes you or I
you taste every story, but do you recognise?
you're so free with the glaze, and it disguises the taste
of what you know this if for.
What its for.

We, we're all here. We feel each bite, we feel each tear as you sew the seeds
your pound of flesh, your fiscal year.
Know what you are
we know what you are we know what you are
know what you are
dear
dear
john.
dear john.
