Story

In 2016, Mama K recorded their debut album at Red Planet Recording with producer Stewart Long (Violent Femmes, Luca Brasi). The album was tracked through a 1975 Vintage Harrison 24/32 Recording Console and mixed to a Vintage Studer B67 Analog Tape Deck. "So much can be done with digital these days, but sometimes you just want some romance!" said Stew Long, “We used old gear wherever it felt good." 

'Moth to The Flame' Is a story about a stripper and her loyal flock of followers, and a priest with his loyal flock of followers.

Lyrics

They watch her move, watch her move her body, hang off every move so elegantly sleazy, she’s got them lapping honey from the palm of her hand, then chokes them on the air that’s dirty, dank and heavy.

She’s gonna wring them out, milking every penny, her faithful are devout, lonely sad and many, majestically she owns them with her poise and command, on every single level she will leave them empty.

Like the dying find god, (promises of every kind of paradise), and like a moth to the flame (draw them in with guarantees to satisfy), they’re gonna get what they want (preying on another willing sacrifice), but they’ll still burn in the end (we’re all inventing heaven, everybody’s selling heaven).

Want and need, comfort, blame and answers, blissfully naive, follow any master, brazenly creating both supply and demand, while weakening the weak to feed their lust for power.

Like the dying find god, (promises of every kind of paradise), and like the moth to the flame, (draws them in with guarantees to satisfy), they’re gonna get what they want, (preying on another willing sacrifice), but they’ll still burn in the end, (we’re all inventing heaven, everybody’s selling heaven), they’re gonna get what they want, (keep just out of reach to bait and tantalise), but they’ll still die in the end (we’re all inventing heaven, everybody’s selling heaven).
