about

Songs That Couldn't Swim (A Collection of Demos), will be released on limited edition hand numbered cassette tape on St. Patrick's Day 2015 via Maximum Ames Records
A collection of demo's recorded by Patrick Tape Fleming

Every time you write a song, you hope the best for it. And you love it with all your heart. So you throw it into the pool and hope it can swim with the rest of the songs out there in the world. Some of the songs arms and legs are not strong enough to survive and they drowned. These are the songs that couldn't swim with the rest of them, so they are presented here as dead artifacts that once were loved.

All instruments and words by Patrick Tape Fleming
All songs recorded in Patrick's Apt. in Des Moines, IA except A Moan Like Nina Simone recorded in a basement at Beloit College.
A couple of the wrong lines may have changed thanks to the help of Ashley Tape Fleming.
