Writing the lyrics of a Randalls song is like catching water with a butterfly net. The Randalls' unique visionary approach to songmaking puts into question the very notion of a song. This radical approach is essential to "Crazy" Joe Mazel's revolutionary goals.
As such, each Randalls "song" changes every time it is performed, including the rehearsals. And the lyrics are shaped to fit Crazy Joe's perceptions of his environment and mood.
What we can present, however, is an important glimpse into the Randalls creative process, because each song does have a genesis before its very existence is threatened by the dynamics of pure punk performance. Wherever possible, the assemblage of words created during this process has been carefully transcribed from bathroom tissue, five-dollar bills, guitar-rock CD booklets and whatever other scraps the boys chose to scribble on.
So if you enjoy being teased, hasten below to take a sideways glance into
the dark heart of the Randalls.
