about

To help raise money for our late bassist Brian's memorial scholarship fund, we sold ten "personalized" songs during the 2013 fundraiser. SiMent spent time in 2013 writing these songs, entering the studio February 15 - 18, 2014 to record the songs.

SiMent's first full length album in twelve years -- and first new music recorded since 2005 -- is now available for $10, all of which will again be donated to Brian's scholarship fund. To make additional donations to the fund, name your own price and download the album.

about

SiMent Milford, Connecticut

Formidable power-pop band SiMent formed in Milford, CT in 1995 as a trio consisting of Dave Novak, Ralph Thompson and Brian McGarry. In 1997, Jason Weaver completed the lineup.

After a nine-year hiatus, SiMent emerged in 2013 to write a new album of songs as a fundraising effort for Brian McGarry's memorial fund. The album is slated for release in early 2014.

Track Name: Suzy
Suzy.. Suzy Foley
That used to be your name
before you had it changed
to DiPalermo.. whoa whoa ohhh
Yeah yeah, no.

We’ve all gotten older
We’ve all grown up
Well most of us anyways
To those who did not
We miss you a lot
And I never want that to change
And I never want that to change

Polly V Choride
You use to publish zines
before you moved and became the queen
of Long Island, so beguiling
Baby.

We’ve all gotten older
We’ve all grown up
Well most of us anyways
To those who did not
We miss you a lot
And I never want that to change
And I never want that to change
Track Name: Nami
Hand me my punk rock pajamas
It’s time to strap on my wheeled shoes
Head on down to the Hangar
I got some girls to bruise

So on my way to get some coffee
you won't believe who cut me off
The hottest guy I have ever seen,
with hair like Hasselhoff

I don’t mind the lack of sunshine
as long as I have my Dew
It’s pretty weird here in Port-land
It might not be for you

Sipping my coffee from Stumptown
Heading across the Burnside
Daydreaming about my Lumpy
I couldn’t believe my eyes!

There goes that Hasselhoff jackass
and his troupe of unicyclists
Chasing down a pack of penguins
shaking their fists!

I should have kicked his ass
I should have taken his name
But instead of that

I instantly knitted a fabulous beanie, cut off his long flowing locks, put the beanie on his head
And then I walked away!

I don’t mind the lack of sunshine
as long as I have my Dew
It’s pretty weird here in Portland
It might not be for you
Track Name: Ryon
I want some food
Well how bout you?
A Pibb and a McRib for two
Perfect for a Sunday afternoon

sitting on the couch watching NFL
living standard definition television hell
after the game it’s off to Deep Space Nine
Got my Mellow Yellow, Hello, now I’m feeling fine

How many movies did you see this week?
I’m on a media consumption fucking winning streak
Posting pictures so you all can see

Now on to some tunes:
Ben Folds and Guster for the afternoon
BNL Billy Joel and Hotel Lights
Weezer Cake and Kweller to wrap up the night

How many apps did you grab this week?
I’m on a media consumption fucking winning streak
Posting status so you all can see

Mr Collins, we hardly knew ye
But all that shit went to your head
Mr Collins, we tried to save you
Time to disconnect and go outside instead
Track Name: Stacy
Headed north,
with Tara or Laura, we didn’t know
91 to 84, ya had to pay a toll
Finally get to see Liz Phair
Been waiting all my life
Lost my head in Whip Smart,
I didn’t even see the light

1 2 3 4
You can plan for everything
But you just don’t know
Worcester ate your car
But you still saw the show

Spinning came to a stop
I looked at Tara or Laura I didn’t know
Had to wait a whole hour
For a fucking tow
Ran straight to Boynton St
SiMent was waiting there
Ran up the hill to Harrington
Rock out to Liz Phair

5 6 7 8
You can plan for everything
But you just don’t know
Worcester ate your car
But you still saw the show

whoa whoa…

Dancing front row
with Tara or Laura I didn’t know
Pulled me up on stage to sing Cinco de Mayo!

You can plan for everything
But you just don’t know
Worcester ate your car
But you still saw the show

Worcester ate your car
Worcester ate your car
Worcester ate your car
Track Name: Michael
Michael Henry, how old are you?
I've just got to know
It seems like it’s always
your fucking birthday
everywhere I go

The Chinese restaurant on Boylston St
The Rainforest Cafe is such a treat
Chocolate covered Lava cake
They’re on to you, you’re ID’s fake
Happy Birthday to the oldest guy I know

Michael Henry
Do you get tired?
I've just got to know
From the lung capacity required
for all the candles you blow

You’ve already been to the B this week
Let’s try the Sole because it’s across the street
Big entrees and ice cream shakes
Whatever things they fucking make
Happy Birthday to the oldest guy I know

Happy Birthday to the oldest guy I know
Happy Birthday to the oldest guy I know

Happy happy birthday
You’re the oldest fuck I know
Happy happy birthday
And now it's time to go.
Track Name: Kevo
Behind the wheel of a Mazda truck
He learned to drive, he learned to fuck
Now close your eyes and hold your breath
Narrowly escaping death

After the crash, he ran away
He only got a couple blocks away
When he got home, his dad was pissed
YOU FUCKING WRECKED MY TRUCK!

Kevo, how’d you go
From being fast to being last?

It wasn’t long before he bought a Metro
Back on the road he was ready set, go!
He jumped the canyon, did a barrel ro-ll
And then the ring of FIRE!

Kevo, how’d you go
From being fast to being last?

Kevo, how’d you go
From being fast to being last?
Track Name: Justin
We met in high school
You skipped ahead in Physics dude
Your force never equaled M times A
We were effed when you left the Nutmeg State

But you left me all alone
Standing here Foran Road
You left me all alone

Unpacking boxes in your Brooklyn loft
Subway rattle keeps throwing you off
Still thinking about the Milford beach
Suburban times felt out of reach

Packed up my shit again
This time for home my friends
I think I got the sign
And I’m making her my wife

Now I’ll never be alone
I finally found my home
I’ll never be alone

When is something gonna happen for me
And will I see a sign?
Will I wake up one day
My future is defined?
And will it all work out for me?

I think it all worked out for me
Track Name: Spen
We’re all made for many things
Many wrenches for many bolts
Earth still spins, fruits still grow
Strap on wings and boldly flow

Take over the second stream
Upturn rocks til' you find the one
Laugh it out, now let it go
Turn about, cause they don't know

We are all in the middle of it
We’re all in the middle of everything
Everything……….

The stuff we have don’t mean a thing
Disregard as we see fit
Untie the knot, you can’t get stuck
Fall head first, it wasn't luck

We are all in the middle of it
We’re all in the middle of everything
Everything……….
Track Name: Tara
We wanted you to join our dumb little band
but instead you left us with a Mittleman
You had some hair when you got to Foran
But you shaved it all off and went bald instead

These are the stories of your life
This is one-third of your life
We’re all wondering what is coming next
These things all happen

You then moved one more state to the north
sucked it dry and moved on to LA
Before too long you made out like a Bandit
Kiss or Kill every night in Silver Lake

But LA wasn’t enough for you
You needed something more
Sign your life on the dotted line
And they’ll send you off to war

Now you’re off in a place where the sun goes to sleep
While we see it rise

There’s been so much fucked up shit over there that it must have
burned a hole in your eyes

These are the stories of your life
This is one-third of your life
We’re all wondering what is coming next
These things all happen

Now you’re back in the states
but you don’t have a clue anymore where home lies
You find yourself here with us in the Lone Star State
Which is more or less a state of mind
Track Name: Doug & Sarah
Well tall and shorts are a pairing
Years of memories we’re sharing
We knew it long ago
Walking down Foran Road

I wanted you in the worst way
Long before I’m the Birthday
I saw the future in your smile
You made me laugh all the while

And every time I see you
It does wonders for my eyes
I love the way you’re always acting so surprised
When I do the things you want me to
When I do the little things for you

Now we got proof of our existence
Look at those four eyes you can’t miss them
Years of happiness and health
Now I can dance all by myself!

And every time I see you
It does wonders for my eyes
I love the way you’re always acting so surprised
When I do the things you want me to
When I do the little things for you
When I do the little things for you
When I do the little things for you
