lyrics

1983

We started a company

In the first quarter of 1983

We wanted to make people happy 

And, of course, make a little money
We started worrying 
that our
8-bit programming 

Wouldn’t be completed in time 
for
The shareholders meeting

Wait for us 

Soon it will be ready 

For fourth quarter entry, maybe

We didn’t read the market studies 
or analyses 

On the viability of our new company
In the already saturated videogame industry 

We didn't stand a fighting chance of avoiding bankruptcy

Wait for us

Soon it will be ready 

For fourth quarter entry, maybe

When the orders starting coming 

We hired more programmers 

When the deadline came 

We'd be ready to start shipping
To make sure we'd stay in the running 

We hired a flock of managers 

When the deadline came 

We were ready to start shipping

The industry crashed on the last day of 1983

We had to declare insolvency 

We had to fire everybody 

Soon we will be ready 
to start another company

about

Statue Park Montréal, Québec

Behind soaring, breathy vocals, Statue Park is a blend of intricate guitar interplay, completed by moody, murky samples and bubbly analog synths, driven by a live pulsating, heartbeat of bass and drums. The Montreal quartet manage to carry their complex arrangements to the stage with verve and intensity, delivering a 90s inflected indie rock breathing through epicly layered electronics. ... more
