about

One afternoon early in the summer of 2016, we tracked this album to celebrate and document the addition of our new drummer and the subsequent evolution of our music - We played and sang in the same room at the same time with the goal of catching the live energy of the trio. Nothing is overdubbed.
"I don't think I've ever felt more alive and awake playing music than I do with this project." Says Kyle Araki, little pharmers newest member, "I want to explore and explode on the drums with more love and creativity than I ever have."
*virtual hug* (to those that want it)

enjoy!

about

little pharmer Powell River, British Columbia

Prepare to be uplifted, and a bit shaken. Little pharmer is a musical collision between industrial agriculture and joyous inspiration. Brilliant lyrics, wild songwriting, fearless energy; this is farm rock, punk rock, and true folk music. You will leave with a song in your heart and dirt under your nails. ... more

Track Name: sugar
honey comes from a honey bee
syrup comes from a maple tree
sugar comes from gangsters...Gangsters!

If I was a gangster I would be,
the kind that's ever so oh so sweet
I'd kill everyone secretly, tastefully, and sweetly
I'd have a hundred different names,
I'd snort lines of aspertame
I'd hang out with the rich and famous and I'd hang out with you.
I wouldn't use no 9 mil
you'd just need about 9 mils
that's enough to get the children HOOKED baby hooked baby!
hook line and sinker baby
you're hooked up but it ain't your fault
I put sugar in table salt
I put sugar in all the ho-li-days
yup that's right I've got them all
chocolate covered ritual
I pushed aside the pagans with a pocket full of...
Trick or trick or trick or trick or
trick or treat!
Trick or trick or trick or trick or
trick or treat! I can make anything taste sweet
even pulp mill waste.
Trick or trick or trick or trick or
trick or treat!
I'm knockin on your country
but you might not recognize me
It's cuz I'm from the first world
and you're from the third world
girls and boys, gather round,
come meet the new farmer in town
gotta grow this then chop it down
I'll make you rich
I'm just kiddin no I won't
I'm gonna throw you in the moat
it's filled with cocacola, endless debt and probably soldiers
now this land is my land and I am the man.

honey comes from a honey bee
syrup comes from a maple tree
sugar comes from gangsters...Gangsters!
Track Name: p(ee) is for phosphorus
you know, you should take good care of your piss
nobodies aimin, but everyone missed
the most misunderstood of the bodily fluids
If I was your mom, I'd be like, "naw, don't DO it!"
Don't shoo it away in the water supply
that's like pickin and stickin carrots in your eye
that's like prayin for rain with a chem trail
that's like sendin your gramma to jail
c'mon, P P P P P is for phosphorus
P P P P P is for phosphorus
P P P P P is for phosphorus
I've got a preposterous hippopotamus hypothesis

check out my store bought-dirt
it's perfect
for my professional vegetable circus
I'm in the church of purchasing minerals
from untouchable industrial criminals
Down in the mine, it's sweet fair trade
your mom gets the shaft
and the shaft gets paid
and the shaft is really great at gettin people to buy
whatever he's got in half-decent supply
whatever he can bake into the craziest pie
he can shake it in your breakfast
he can lay it in the SKY!

but what if I sold him a jar of my pee?
and I told him it was magic liquid fertilizer tea?
what if it worked and he wanted some more?
and so I opened up a magic liquid fertilizer store
but I'd rather just teach him how to use the force
then he could tap into his localest fuel scource.

P is for phosphorus
P is for phosphorus
P(ee) is for phosphorus
I'm kind of a doctor but I'm kind of the opposite

P is for phosphorus
pardon me I kinda peed on your shoppin list
Track Name: I don't buy groceries
I don’t buy groceries at this time of year
I prefer foraging wild like some dear
I will buy even less groceries next year
Slowly my grocery bill gonna disapear
Track Name: salad not sod
I used to mow it-and de-thatch it
I used to water and weed wack it
I used to spend my green to keep it green
but then those god damn weeds attacked it
I used to mow it and de-thatch it....

I used to pray to monsanto for more herbicides
I used to wage holy war
against those Dandilion Terrorists
but not any more...

now I'm singin

salad not sod,
lettuce not lawns
gardens not grass
not gasoline consumption
salad not sod,
lettuce not lawns
gardens not grass
not gasoline

lemme know when you're done
with that lawnmower
I'd like to lower the blade
right down into the ground
so it can clear the way
for the

salad not sod
lettuce not lawns
gardens not grass
not plastic
salad not sod
lettuce not lawns
gardens not grass
not plastic dreams
Track Name: how to climb a salmon ladder
you wanna talk about food security?
how bout a salmon run, for you and me?
and fifty thousand of our fellow citizens,
and every one of our great great great grand children.

Damn, theres a dam. Damn, theres a dam,
Damn, I guess we need an alternative meal plan
maybe the dam could power our work
so we could buy Atlantic Salmon from Pacific entrepreneurs-
farmin Atlantic salmon here on the pacific side
I seen Pacific Atlantic Salmon with seven eyes
I seen em growin together like siamese brides
I gave em vaccine, anasthetic and fugicide...

Damn, I think I'd rather eat a blown up dam
watchin the salmon flowin up back into the land
for my great grand children, "now that's power!"
you can't measure it in kilowatt hours
but you can measure it in generations
of well fed people, under the sun

How much does cost one electric fish?
I got a blocked artery my blood is delicious
so pull the plug, pull the rug
let the blood flow, what's up, yo?
I'm havin salmon for lunch, we got enough, yo
to feed a civilization to feed a civilization
to feed a civilization to feed a civilization

to feed a civilization to feed civilization
the taste in your mouth is out of the corporation question
the lesson here is that you can't damn my artery
and try to sell the pressure to some other part of me
without somethin goin wrong on the other side
I seen Pacific Atlantic Salmon with seven eyes
I seen em growin together like siamese brides
I think it's high time we reached a compromise

For every damn dam dammin the salmon run
you gotta build a ladder and a damn big one
give me a fish flavoured stairway to heaven
Put down your power flavoured weapon.

you wanna talk about food security?
how bout a salmon run, for you and me?
and fifty thousand of our fellow citizens,
and every one of our great great great grand children.
