Bad History Month, “Staring At My Hands”

Quinn Moreland

We're pretty sure anyone familiar with Exploding in Sound Records have listened to the Boston DIY punk duo, Fat History Month. However, with a simple switch of an adjectives, singer/guitarist Jeff Meff is out to confuse even the most ardent of followers. The outcome is Meff's solo-project Bad History Month, and one of his first recordings as a one-man band, “Staring At My Hands” is the first single from an upcoming split with Dust From 1000 Years. The track is a stripped-down existential whammy. Set against simple piano, drums, and guitar, Meff sings “Staring at my hands and picturing them decomposing / Feeling my existence as a ripple in an endless ocean / Not even a drop, I will take no substance with me when I'm gone / Because my body's the same as the sea.” While the track focuses on feelings of smallness and the ephemerality of life, it's persuasion that a permanence of the Bad might be in order for Meff.

The Bad History Month / Dust From 1000 Years Famous Cigarettes split is due out June 10 on Exploding In Sound with a vinyl release on Limited Appeal to follow. Stream “Staring At My Hands” below.
