After your purchase, Stan and Pietra respectfully request their music not be shared or duplicated on the internets please.

That would make them both cry and walk sad and lonely through the night.

Please just share this Bandcamp album link huh ? - for friends to purchase too. Thank you.

FAQ? :

Q: Will there be a cd or vinyl of this release?

A: No not at this time. Only digital for this one - for the moment.

Q:How come? I want a cd and a piece of round plastic too.

A: The current industry climate for manufacturing such items and recouping the costs is hard for all music makers at this time. They love physical albums too but right now its a a bit dodgy on the "making money back" part. Stan and Pietra have chosen this digital release strategy for the time being.

Q: Are Stan and Pietra opening up a "greasy spoon"diner or "art monster's commune" with old rusty tin tuff sheds out in the harsh hot desert soon? I'll join 'em ! Some old man flagged me down on Interstate 15 and told me they were. I'm hungry and lonely too!

A: They are not at this time friend. But you can still join us is in confusion like many others now - in this new digital internet world not of their making, Run by large corporations that do not have the best interests of music creators in mind. Although there have been swirling rumors, they personally have not revealed any of these "greasy spoon" diner or "art monster" commune plans to us or the public. At least not yet. We will keep you posted.

Thank you for your purchase ! It all helps them make more music! Enjoy!

xo from S & P to all.

p.s. more specail bandcamp recordings and audio packages to come. Merch too.

"Priestess Of The Promised Land"
Words & music: Stan Ridgway, Pietra Wexstun

​Ceilings of silver, windows and glass
​Alter is golden, baskets they pass
​She's got a headache
​So make it all paper today

​People are hungry, helpless and sad
Aimee will make them not feel so bad ​
Then she'll run off with a lover to old Mexico

As a girl she heard voices in her head
​All those lost souls to be led
By her

Aimee Simple McPherson
Priestess of the Promised Land
​She came to California
Built a temple
Mighty and grand

​Radio angel, she'll take you there
Past every problem, past every care ​
Choirs will lift them as coins will be
Dropped in the box

​One night she vanished, down by the sea
People were praying this cannot be ​
Rumors were shared in the temple
Until her return

As a girl she heard voices in her head
​All those lost souls to be led
By her

Aimee Simple McPherson
Priestess of the Promised Land
​She came to California
Built a temple
Mighty and grand
