about

The Throats sixth full-length album (meaning it takes up both sides of the cassette). A thinly-conceived concept album about St. Brendan the Navigator. Recorded in 1999 at Little Ease Studios (the basement) on Long Island. Performed and engineered by Michael O'Shaughnessy. Drums on "Brought Home in Summer" by Jim O'Shaughnessy.

The Throats: Martyrs guitarist leaves Long Island for Calabash, North Carolina; starts solo project as the Throats. The lost years follow from 1994-1997. Records three and a half albums; self-destructs, returns to LI, continues recording. Moves to Oregon; issues swan song in 2010. After 15 years, it's enough already. The Throats were Mike O'Shaughnessy.

Track Name: The Dream of Brendan the Navigator
As the hurricane comes closer
You take position on the coast
Invitations sent to many
Once again, no one shows up but your ghost

As the surf begins to pound
Flags are raised up on the pier
Warnings were sent out for nothing
No one even tried to get near

Maybe in the sump you'll find the bones of an alligator
Maybe in your night you'll come across the dream of Brendan the Navigator

As the clouds begin to swirl
And the shore is beaten back
You can see the eye is near
But it's quickly growing black

Now the hurricane surrounds you
Your boat is anchored in the sand
You awaken to a silence
That you try to understand

Maybe in the sump you'll find the bones of an alligator
Maybe in your night you'll come across the dream of Brendan the Navigator
