Jonathan Ames: Lyricist

“The Story of the Hairy Call,” by One Ring Zero,
with lyrics by Jonathan Ames
Mr. Ames explains the hairy call:

[It’s a] sound I’ve been making since childhood. Only two other people in the world can make the sound, my childhood friends Jonathan “Fat” Eder and Francis “Manzi” Manziano. “Fat” Eder invented the sound in the fourth grade. “The Story of the Hairy Call” recounts how the sound came into being and its unusual healing powers, but it is an oral tale that I’ve never written down, which is par for the course for oral tales. If you’ve heard me tell this story, please tell it to others in the tradition of ancient myths.

Other authors, including Dave Eggers, Margaret Atwood, Jonathan Lethem and Paul Auster, have also composed songs for the band.
