Fatal Floral Phonograph is a moody collection of rock gone western by The Slow Poisoner, "the one man surrealistic rock and roll band." "With a foot pounding on the bass drum and his fingers plucking a home made guitar…" Andrew Poisoner turns western/country beats into comically dark music that matches his strange lyrics. Fun picks: 1,3

FCC clean.
1. 2:30 *fun pick*
A roaring Western beat opens the first line, "You'll see through my glass eye tonight, and a strand of electric lights." Piano joins guitar and drum in the refrain – slowing down and emphasizing The Poisoner's invitation, "Come to Me…"

2. 2:16
Song opens with country meets sixties surfer beats to create spy music. The song describes a strange memory when "The weeds took over the town." Piano pounds during the refrain and relentless guitar
phrase pushes the song forward.

3.2:27 *fun pick*
Song opens with drumming reminiscent of The White Stripes. Tambourines join in refrain "The Hollers in the Hollow." Playful guitar phrases break The Slow Poisoner's frustrations about miscommunication.

Song tells a story of a little boy lured by "A strange old lady dressed in yellow and green." The folksy tale is backed by an unexpected mix of electric guitar and chorus.
