Hooray! It's finally out! I'm looking forward to getting the full early recordings release once I've ponied up a bit of cash. :) I just listened to "Fish" for the first time in a while the other day and was reminded how much I dig how weird you guys' early stuff is.

YAY!!! 

it is nice to finally start getting stuff out there.  There is so much to go through regarding the back catalog that it is a bit overwhelming to be honest.  I recorded A TON of stuff back in the 90's.  I think that compiling groups of songs into albums and releasing them one at a time is the best way to make steps toward making the back catalog available.

Glad that you are enjoying these so far.  :)

Hi everyone,

I only discovered House of Wires through a friend of mine about... a year and a half ago? Since then, though, I've been an avid fan of all of Jon's work. The music he makes is mostly outside of my normal spectrum: I tend towards classic rock and jazz, usually, but Jon's stuff is too good to dislike.

Not much else to say. Hopefully some of y'all come back soon!

I've been trying to figure this out for a while. Here's what I've got so far:


There is hope and there is vision
Angry looks pass me by
Cradled in your indecision
I really wonder, wonder why

(Handyman?) awaiting covered in a gabardine
Invasion of my privacy, described it as obscene
We (judge, decide, and every?) for conclusions of our own
When all I want is a quiet life and to be left alone

There is hope and there is vision
Angry looks pass me by
Cradled in your indecision
I really wonder, wonder why

(?) is useless, I cut across the grain
The blood runs in the gutter, spills slowly in the drain
Take all you have, do not give in, responsible to me
Hide your face, your hands, your brains, I want to set you free

There is hope and there is vision
Angry looks pass me by
Cradled in your indecision
I really wonder, wonder why


The question marks in parentheses are words/phrases I can't figure out, and the phrases in parentheses with question marks after them are what I think are the correct lyrics, but not entirely sure.

Anyone else want to give it a shot?

Hi everyone,

It doesn't look anyone is still active, but I just joined today to say that Jon has released two albums on Bandcamp: a rerelease of Pivot Clowj's It's not as if it were the end of the world... that was yesterday (including three bonus tracks, but minus "Havoc Man," "Drowning in the X-Pool," and the live version of "Mind On A String")  and what appears to be a compilation album of earlier music, entitled From Pirate to Pivot: the early recordings of Jon Sonnenburg. You can find both at the link below:

https://pivotclowj.bandcamp.com/

I only just recently got into House of Wires, and then Travelogue, so as someone who has never heard anything by Pivot Clowj before, I really enjoyed the rerelease of "end of the world." I haven't listened to the the compilation album yet, save for "Drowning in the X-Pool," but I'm sure that it's quality, considering who created all of the music in the first place!
