about

After the Hollywood Suck$ album was released BOX OF STUFF reformed as Chris Koga (drums), Andy Falk (guitar), Conrad Williams (bass, lead vocals) and Sheree' (keys and vocals) and occasionally Ivan (lead guitar). The HOLLYWOOD SUCK$ album was getting played consistently on www.mp3.com which resulted in an offer to tour Spain.
The band spent the Spring and Summer of 2001 rehearsing and writing new songs as well as creating a gig list of 40 songs for the Spain tour.
They got so excited about the new songs that they bought a Digi-001 Pro Tools rig and recorded the songs in Mr. Falk's house. This album is the result of those recordings. Although the cost of the recordings was relatively small, a lot of time and effort went into the recording and mixing. This was the band's first attempt to harness the digital technology that has now become the industry standard as well as create songs that would translate immediately to the the internet media format.

The first leg of the tour was about to get underway - first stop Cadiz, Spain. Before the band could pack their bags, 9/11 happened and the tour was scrapped.

The band played around Los Angeles for a year until personal issues caused the band to take a break from performing.

A 3rd BOX OF STUFF album is currently being recorded with a projected release date of June 2013.

chords: pick – (from G) Em, F#, G, C, B C – chorus: Em F# G C

Verse: All the truths i've heard so far, none compares to the rise and fall

Of expectations hit the wall, realizations what's life for?

Who we are is who we love

Chorus: If not now then when will we come together? Come together...

All the lies I've heard so far, none compares to the lies of the heart

who am I to tell you how to live your life in the here and now

who we are is who we love

If not now then when will we come together? Come together...

Before too late

SURRENDER
w/m ©2012 AJFalk and Chelsea Street Records

chords: D C E C, chorus: G E C, G E F

I watched my fathers eyes unfold

I was so angry so young and bold

I saw his last breath, and his dying eyes

reaching out to touch me, clear up all the lies

chorus: But he never surrendered, he never surrendered, surrender Never Surrender

ver 2 – I watched as life knocked him to his knees,

I took for granted all the things he did for me

Until the day, I saw the callous on his hand

That was the day I, I finally understood the man

But he never surrendered, he never surrendered, surrender Never Surrender

Track Name: Less Than Zero
LESS THAN ZERO © Box of Stuff 2013
I've seen the future all too clear, say goodbye to everything you hold near and dear
Some things I do regret, some people I have met, leaves me feeling rather less than whole
I'm feeling less than zero, you make it hard to follow
Why don't you just let me go?
I'm less than zero 3x, I'll be your hero
Things have never really been the same, she disappeared as quickly as she came
some dreams I can't dismiss, her image does exist – like some haunting wind from a past delight I'm feeling less than zero, you make it hard to follow
Why don't you just let me go?
I'm less than zero 3x, I'll be your hero
LEAD GUITAR
I'll be your hero 4x
I'm feeling, your feeling, I'm feeling less than zero 2x
Why don't you...just let me go.

she got her dreams and she got her things and she needs every one to love her love her

Track Name: Skin
INSIDE MY SKIN © box of stuff 2013
You don't wanna be inside the skin I'm in
You don't wanna see the sadness I've seen - the sadness I've seen
You don't wanna go too deep inside my soul
You don't wanna see the dark black empty hole, dark black empty hole
What can I do, when I don't like who I am? What can I do when I don't like the skin I'm in Hey O 6x
Certain situations are like daggers in my heart, I'm not supposed to show my feelings when it hurts..and it hurts
watching you walk away with someone else
it cuts my confidence in half, it's a living hell, a living hell
What can I do, when I don't like who I am? What can I do when I don't like the skin I'm in Hey O 6x
