Pissy Ants have been driving us crazy lately in San Francisco. We suspect this is a new way for the Real Estate Board to advise landlords how to drive out long-term tenants protected by the city.

A PRIORI/A POSTERIORI is a moveable feast of sounds and ideas for the new roaring 20s. The Granite Countertops emerge from 18 months of sheltering in place with their sixth album of 16 all-new original songs about survival, knowledge, experience, time, life, sickness, health, and annoying insects.

J Neo Marvin and Davis Jones file status reports on remote life, feel the blood run through their own bodies, marvel in horror at the continuing madness around them, and serenade a hideaway with a dynamic range of surprising musical styles.

Former Puncture writers Patty Stirling (co-writer of several other indie classics) and Peter Jones contributed to both the writing of the lyrics and the song performance for Aftermath Limerick.

FILMMAKERS: Key, Time, Tempo, Description added to each song for audiophiles, movie directors or whoever wants to use the music for an original film. We can remove vocals from soundtracks per deposits made on instrumental use per individual contract agreements.


Touchless crawlers scurry up and down my arms
Brazen, fearless, through the house the hundreds swarm
Terro Ant Baits, Ace Ant Roach & Spider Spray
Holds them, then they're back another day

Pissy ants
Pissy ants
Pissy ants
We hate pissy ants!

Seeking crumbs and sweet scraps humans leave behind
Sending pheromones to their collective mind
Queen is laying eggs in all the hidden places
Give that queen a nice big dose of boric acid

Pissy ants
Pissy ants
Pissy ants
We hate pissy ants!

Through the cracks, within the walls they send their scouts
Creepy crawling up your legs and on the tables
You can slow them down but they keep coming back
How much does it cost to rent an aardvark?

Pissy ants
Pissy ants
Pissy ants
We hate pissy ants!

Pissy ants
Pissy ants
Pissy ants
We hate pissy ants!
