about

Dutch Courage St. Louis, Missouri

Dutch Courage is the alter-ego of St. Louis based songwriter Andy Puechner, who has been writing and performing his bedroom- folk & pop stylings since the summer of 2003. The music is centered around Puechner's voice & fingerstyle guitar work- melodic hooks are simultaneously barbed and gentle, with lyrics somehow both bitter and sweet, optimistic & wry.

Folk & Pop without fences.

Track Name: Sister Mary-Catherine
Sister Mary-Catherine's been wondering where you are / If she don't know by now / Your escape 'cross half the state's built mainly on your charm / if you don't know by now / He seems like he's nice enough but don't take things too far / if you don't know by now / Tell me how you plan to make them pay for all your scars / If you don't know by now

How you gonna deal / With those sayin' your just another ramblin' rose.
Track Name: Keep Calm
Let this be a lesson to you / You think you're special but it just isn't true / Authorities have gotten interested, too / Assigned an agent with a dossier due / Across the desk of an inept bureaucrat / It's hard to tell you but there's no going back / Keep calm and maintain some control of yourself / your brave convictions won't be of too much help / with all the fictions lining magistrates' shelves / You'd best believe they're not concerned for your health / You're still convinced now that their armor is cracked / It's hard to tell you but there's no going back.
Track Name: Lies and Degradations
If I only ever could make you see / As a Man of Letters put your faith in Me / There's no use in other possibilities / And you're gonna find / when you're looking for answers / A people unkind, who think of you as a cancer / But you won't ever take them / their lies and degradations
Track Name: So At Ease
It seemed so easy when we lived here in the city / but things are different now between us it's a pity / Another week of this don't know how we can take it / we've had our differences and chances that we've wasted / So what to do about a bad situation? / you've got no choice you've got to rise above your station / She's no longer so at ease in her own skin / If he's the last thing that she sees she's gonna hold him / I believe she can't control the measures that she's taking / she had her doubts before and wishes she could shake them / She found somebody who was lost without a purpose / but when she's with him all her problems seem so worthless / So what to with your bad situation? / You've got no choice you've got to rise above your station
Track Name: L'il Cat Feet
Just then she walked in / just like on little cat feet now / past my window watching / Daylight broke in / just like a little caffeine now / there goes my whisper talking / They talk about sin / in Sunday sermons raining down / ring like a bell that's broken / She's under my skin / it's not like they'd listen to me how / it's better left unspoken / One, two, three, four. / <Welsh kids on a playground>
