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.


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

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.
