M.E.D.I.A. Festival W.R.A.P. Party - May 7, 2005

Jeffrey Champ opened the W.R.A.P. Party show. The band consisted of Jeffrey (vocals/guitar), Jonathan Rex (guitar), and Joseph Dawa (drums). We played three songs:

1. No Hope
2. Who Are Your Friends?
3. Love Is Destruction

Since we lacked a bass player, we decided to keep the guitars thick and grungy by not playing guitar solos--we kicked it Nirvana-style! Joseph, however, was indeed the almighty Joseph Dawa, as he gave the thick guitars a very finessed rhythm--very Pumpkinsesque! As for my vocals, I am still working on making it more grizzled and grainy--it actually forces me to feel the emotion of the music.

In total, it was a great show. Many thanks to Advent for letting us use their large amplifiers and drumkit. Their set rocked! Unreformed played later in the night, and they were also great!

Special thanks to everyone for coming to the show! The Wandering Troubadour Tour 2005 continues...

Love transcends,
J. Champ

Jeffrey Champ on a Field


"Love Is Destruction"

May my love destroy us both so that we may become pure heart and soul / But let the world go down in flames if I never hear your voice again

May your hope protect this town like a child held safely in your arms from harm / But all our dreams keep crashing down and I have no one else to lose but you

I'm in love with you can't do anything about it / Floating in the dark we are / Yes I'm in love with you can't do anything about it / Before I say goodbye a kiss goodnight

May our faith create a star to shine down on the heavens below our feet / But all our dreams keep crashing down and we will never be the same again

I'm in love with you can't do anything about it / Floating in the dark we are / Yes I'm in love with you can't do anything about it / Before I say goodbye a kiss goodnight

No matter what / No matter where you are / And no matter who I become this year

May my love destroy us both so that we may become pure heart and soul...

I'm in love with you can't do anything about it / Floating in the dark we are / Yes I'm in love with you can't do anything about it / Before I say goodbye a kiss goodnight / Goodnight / Goodnight
