"your bruises, they lie to me"

From the charred remains of Arab On Radar and Six Finger Satellite come The Chinese Stars. Christened after the "Chinese Star Epidemic" of the early 80's which found legions of grade school kids across America armed with "shuriken" throwing stars, the band pledge to follow in this tradition: terrorizing parents, authority figures and the psyche of the free world.

The Chinese Stars include Craig Kureck and Eric Paul formerly of Arab on Radar, already legendary for disbanding late last year at the height of their popularity - and after achieving renown as one of the most innovative bands of the last decade. Craig Kureck, the drummer responsible for the extraordinary pulse of AOR, renews his denunciation here in The Chinese Stars. Eric Paul, singer, has reportedly cleaned up his act and purchased a dictionary for this new endeavor, though early reports confirm that mental illness remains his guiding light. Richard Ivan Pelletier formerly of Six Finger Satellite, a band considered far and wide as the "Founding Fathers of Chaos" takes up the electric bass and production duties. The final member enlisted, Paul Vieira, remains shrouded in mystery. We regret that no further information on Mr. Vieira is available at this time. Together The Chinese Stars vow to reinvent what they have already invented. This goal will be achieved via the manufacture and distribution of audio artifacts and furthered by untamed live demonstrations of their resolve.

"sick machine"

hey, don't forget to put that mouth into your pocket
so, you can maintain the evil of your diet
you could build a bone toilet with the calories that roll off your shoulder
it could be a monument to our eating disorders

you are a virus
i am no longer a host for you

you got no manners in the bedroom get the jumper cables upstairs
you got no manners in the bedroom get your mattress out of 5th gear

i, became a drunk driver to find a vaccine for, immunity against your sick machine
you could build a support group
with the germs that you bring on vacation
you buy and sell my hopes as a Wall Street patient

being made now.
