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

Der Snatch 03:39
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

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.
