The Faithful Sidekicks are the acoustic geek/filk comedy musical duo of Eric and Jen Distad. They started making music together in 2004 but it wasn't until they combined Eric's love of songwriting with Jen's skills in Improv Comedy that they found their musical passion and started having enormous fun in the process. Now, they write and perform catchy original (mostly) comedic songs about the geeky/fannish things that they love, with topics ranging from Star Trek to SQL Code and everything in between. Based in Oregon City in Oregon, they have been delighting audiences together at coffee shops, SF Conventions and small venues around the US, Canada, and even Germany since 2014.

They have released 3 CDs - *.* And Other Star Things, Achievement Unlocked, and Our Kind of Strange.

Our Kind of Strange (mp3)

© by Eric Distad and Jen Distad
All rights Reserved, Used by permission

My cousin Vincent is a vampire
He was bitten when he was a yout'
My cousin Wally the werewolf
Likes his fur in curls 'cause they're cute

My sister Molly's a mermaid
Whose showers are always too long
My aunt Bea is a banshee
Who's always breaking out in a song

We are not looking to be normal
We feel no need to change
We love each one just as they are
'Cause they are our kind of strange

(Chorus)
He might be a zombie
But he's still my father
Because our love
is thicker than water
She may be medusa
But she's still our daughter
Because our love
Is thicker than water
Because our love
Is thicker than water

There's uncle Basil the basilisk
Who studies optometry
My dad keeps his room full of sand
'Cause he's married to a mummy

My cousin Bob before he was cursed
Was a shy librarian
He's in anger management
'Cause he's a barbarian

We are not looking to be normal
We feel no need to change
We love each one just as they are
'Cause they are our kind of strange

CHORUS

Family is more than bloodlines
Our bond is beyond the skin
It's not the scales on the outside
It's the heart within

We found her in the forest
She was weird to our eyes
She looked so human, average
But that was her disguise

She didn't have magic powers
The moon didn't make her change
But she became one of our own
'Cause she is our kind of strange

She may not be medusa
But she's still our daughter
Because our love
Is thicker than water
Doesn't matter how we found her
Just that we love her
Because our love
Is thicker than water
Because our love
Is thicker, so much thicker, than water
