Angel White's a killer works for the state
Life's so funky, Angel White's is great
'Cause my homeboy pulls the switch ozone in the air
Picks his paycheck off the floor right nect to the electric chair

The morals of a scoundrel and the science of a bill
He'd push his only brother from a high up window sill
His duty is to Jesus to murder the ones that kill
He's sanctioned by the government and probably always will

Dawn is young and free in many different ways
She wants to give the love she never got in younger days
She ran down to the city fell right through the floor
Lost her light to smack and went from lustrous to a whore

So what a little money never hurt that's all it took
Shadowed by the executionarium she shook
He met a little lady why a flowing like a brook
They fell in love like lovers do and put it in a book

Because they're gnarly rascals Adam & Eve
23rd century lovers Adam & Eve
Will they find salvation, baby, Adam & Eve
Full of resignation, baby, Adam & Eve

The sun comes up almost every day
Nothing lasts forever as the old man wants to say
Hum that woeful weddig dirge so he can say his piece
Cross that bridge to the abyss and sit down for the feast

In the corner look it, someone turns to moves and stops to see
A picture of a frozen smile that's fractured by the glee
He looks back to his drink and thinks I'm glad that isn't me
The old man sucks his whiskey down collapses by a tree

Because they're gnarly rascals Adam & Eve
23rd century lovers Adam & Eve
Will they find salvation, baby, Adam & Eve
Full of resignation, baby, Adam & Eve

The first act has concluded! Did you see what we did there? In order for the first course to digest Dave and Brian have made some special podcasts that don't correspond specifically to anything in The Big Opera. This is the first one they one dropped. Here they break down improvisation in music, according to them. Notable quotes: "Tom Waits is f****** bananas!" and "Shakespeare's bad as f***, dude!" Also mentioned, the 3 record couplet.

Doctor Dave and Snoop Brian Bri delve into the creaion "Torn Dress Blues" and how it fits into the larger narrative. The conversation soon throttles into Doctor Who, Star Wars, and John & Yoko. Quote of the day: "They live to f*** with you."

There's a torn dress in the corner I don't know where it's from

I got bloody knuckles and I got a broken thumb

There's a shovel by the door I don't know why it's there

I got dirty fingernails and blood all in my hair

I thought it was er tat I buried but I seen her walking down the street

If it wasn't her that I buries I guess it must have been me


The Blues is half of the essential handbook for any serious musician in the United States of America. By "the blues" what folk scholars actually mean is "music created by Africans in America." The other half is the folk music the Europeans conjured when confronted by this vast land trying to hold onto their roots. Neither is more important than the other. There's no guilt for being more in one camp than the other. In a land where certain freedoms are guaranteed in writing if not practice the only music jettisoned by the masses is that of the high born and educated, which is a goddamn fucking dirty shame. It's encapsulated by the banjo, an African instrument beloved by the ones whose necks are sunburned. As Johnny Cash would say, "meditate on it." The indigenous music got fucking trampled.

Davey Dave and Dr Bri break down the 5th song in DAWN.1 and APOCALYPSE TOMORROW, "Elvis Is God." The conversation turns to altering one's conciousness through epic jams and John Lennon's extra strand of DNA.

Elvis Is God

The second coming played a rhapsody

Rubbery legged both white and black

Kept the preaching to a minimum

Blood and sweat poured down his sunburned neck

His eyes shut tight and his soul was pure

Jet black hair and karate pose

Sang a song about a mystery

Reverberated 'round the globe


Sideburn Jesus was pumping gasoline

Curled his lip and shook his ass

Drove his truck up to the Temple

The vendors said they'd take a pass

Said "Get your sorry self on back to Memphis

Don't want to hear no blues by whites"

The sneering scarred out face of slavery

Flew across the sky at night


They cleaned him up and took his picture

But the colonel betrayed his very soul

Treated the King like a whored out marionette

But you can't kill Rock and Roll

The last temptation in the Holy Land

Desert sand and neon lights

People come from near and sunder

See him sing three shows a night

They say he's dead but thy're not right

Elvis Is God
