about

Notes About You immediately gloms the listener with the incessant keytar bass motif in the odd 5 meter; a daring and audacious move for a debut track, that is the foundation throughout, nailed to floor by the Captain's drum. The tendrillar guitar and the emergence of the contra-melodrone bass guitar enforce the trance-mitting pulse while the unsettling vocal sails the wash to break on the gravelled shore of the chorus where the listener is pulled into more certain terra-firma as the musical elements pull to the centre to stove one's head in.

Der Snatch switches frequency and stands straight up. A thrusting mid tempo on the power of the one. Built on an indomitable bass riff and a simple play between the root and third with overloaded Hammond organ supporting the vocal declarations and how strange the change from major to minor before a brief return home to muster for the powerful chorus riff. There's a kinky synth solo with an accompanying Theremin like effect reminiscent of the hi-frequency signal from the other dimensions one often gets in the ear without warning and the guitar solo is a sudden hot discharge before the tension is briefly released.

about

Wirehead London, UK

Wirehead; the Semuta; the mind-lube of the ubiquitous tasp. Drawing on the sum total of the late 20th Century's golden age of music; neither aping the past or recycling the reprocessed fifth generation lossy culture of the early 21st Century.

Planting their flag of intent, right between the dulled orbs of the weary pop music acolyte and squeegeeing their third eye with said psychedelic pennon.

Track Name: Notes About You
Today I woke up happy
But now I'm battling with my bad mood
But I'm sure we've all been in sadder states
Well I wish that I was you
That I was with you here
I'm sure we've all been in sadder states

Well I wish that I was with you

Evening light, boats around
It'd be easy to steal one right now
Still I wish I was with you somewhere
Except the water looks moody n' rough
Boats around
It'd be easy to steal one right now
My notes about you
It's getting darker still

Well I wish that I was with you

Taking off
Somewhere not enough
Somewhere 99
And the wind howling
Howling
Track Name: Der Snatch
When you walk in
And you see that face
You get talking
She's amazing grace
Things are getting busy down on the floor
Sing, take it easy some more
Right on

Walls are getting knocked down here, ahh yeah
Getting bigger, getting sleazy, yes

When I wake up
And I see that face
I'll be walking
Well put me back in my place
This clever dreaming won't see me again, no
'Cause I'm stalking you

Walls are getting knocked down here, ahh yeah
Getting bigger, getting sleazy, yes

We were spoke of
In a line of words
In the morning
With early vision blurred
You were getting easy down on he floor
Moving down slow, getting down on all fours
