Heavy Grrr I love this album...they really surprised me. John Parish added a special sound and atmosphere to the songs which are very well structured.
I'm playing it on repeat! Favorite track: Unsmart Lady.

Jeremy Leaming dentists and their messy gardens, beware. you are a useless long leg. now we all know most ppl are. i don't remember anyone.

smiling constantly, and ppl constantly stepping on me frm "Her Hippo."
i've been staring at that hotdog for hours.
i've come here to make a ceramic shoe and smash what you've made.
outside of Armand Hammer's "Haram," this is the best longplay of any music that matters and easily so (in 2021). not sure who the vocalist is, but she's fucking serious and funny as hell.
John O'Connor

John O'Connor Heard a review of this on a radio art show and they couldn't praise it enough, so I had to check it out. And now I can't praise it enough either. The wit and humour are so sharp, you'll cut yourself.

Many years have passed but you’re still charming Rows falling and exploding You can’t save the world on your own I guess Don’t send me it, you keep it You keep it, you keep it Weak arms can’t open the door, kung fu cancel It’ll be ok I just need to be weird and hide for a bit and eat an old sandwich from my bag I’ve come here to make a ceramic shoe and I’ve come to smash what you made I’ve come to learn how to mingle I’ve come to learn how to dance I’ve come to join the knitting circle I’ve come to hand weave my own bunk bed ladder in a few short sessions It’s a Tokyo bouncy ball It’s an Oslo bouncy ball It’s a Rio de Janeiro bouncy ball filter! I love these Mighty Oaks, don’t you? Do everything and feel nothing Wristband theme park Scratchcard lanyard Do everything and feel nothing Do everything and feel nothing Pat Dad on the head Alright you big loud mouth And thanks very much for the Twix I think of myself as a hardy banana with that waxy surface and the small delicate flowers A woman in aviators firing a bazooka A woman in aviators firing a bazooka I’ve come here to make a ceramic shoe and I’ve come to smash what you made I’ve come to learn how to mingle I’ve come to learn how to dance I’ve come to join the knitting circle That’s just child chat! Why don’t you want oven chips now? It’s a Tokyo bouncy ball It’s an Oslo bouncy ball It’s a Rio de Janeiro bouncy ball filter! I love these Mighty Oaks, don’t you? Do everything and feel nothing Wristband theme park Scratchcard lanyard Do everything and feel nothing Do everything and feel nothing You seem really together You’ve got a new coat, new hair Well I tell you one thing, you’ve got it coming One day you’re gonna get it

Cool Yeah Fat podgy Non make-up Unsmart lady If you like a girl, be nice It’s not rocket science A tanned foot squeezed hopefully into a short boot A Kerry Bog Pony High fever Hair remover Hair remover High fever Hair remover Don’t cry just drive Good luck band What’ve been doing?

Just an emo dead stuff collector Things come to the brain Let’s look at the geophys Let’s wait for the results from the geophys Just an emo dead stuff collector Things come to the brain I spent £17 on mushrooms for you Because I’m silly Just an emo dead stuff collector Things come to the brain This week is Holy Week I just want to tell you I’ve got scabs on my head It’s useless to live I’ve been thinking about eating that hot dog for hours Kiss me Letting you only when we must Whilst someone holds the door Too much to ask about So don’t ask It’s useless to live I just want to tell you I’ve got scabs on my head It made me realise My only ambition in life is to grip the roots of your hair You just want to be liked Tin glazed earthenware flower brick painted in blue On the sloping edge, a vase of flowers On the front, a Chinese landscape On the sides, figures in a Dutch landscape It’s Europe It’s Europe It’s Europe It’s Europe In the painting’s foreground, at the bottom, is a famous anamorphic which when viewed sidelong is revealed to be a human skull That seems like a lot of garlic Long and lean and young and lovely You just want to be liked I like you, stay It’s Europe Just an emo dead stuff collector Things come to the brain Too much to ask about So don’t ask

Leafy 03:08
It’s my playground Black skirt, shoes and trainers Shane has joined the chat It was chucking it down when I stepped out, it’s not now Come on then Carl and Terry Are there llama plushies here? In this shop? She’s definitely in a league of her own So just stream Sick of that shit All the while An exhausting walk in the horrible countryside A tiresome swim in a pointless bit of sea Knackering drinks with close friends Thanks a lot Simple pimple Stomach stab What are the things that you have to clear out? Baking powder Big jar of mayonnaise What about all the uneaten sausages? Clean the fat out of the grill pan This is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do now Trying not to think about all the memories Remember when you had to take these pills, remember when you had to take these pills Maybe I just need someone Never talk about your ex, never, never, never, never, never slag them off because then they know, then they know All the while An exhausting walk in the horrible countryside A tiresome swim Knackering drinks Thanks a lot Simple pimple Stomach stab

Her Hippo 04:38
The house is just twelve years old Soft landscaping in the garden An electrician stuck his finger in the plug hole and shouted “Yaba!” Her Hippo Every day he’s a dick Strong one No one The man above A name A word I get upset in the heat I’m smiling constantly and people constantly step on me His shadow looms around A feeling of bees’ legs on my face Safe inside a secret love Let’s run Anyway Mystical Shakespeare shoes A trapped person screaming The last thing I looked at in this hand mirror was a human arsehole Well, Helen’s situation has really put all that in the shade now There he goes he doesn’t care Mostly angry scrappy songs And where does that romantic jealousy come from? Te amo Manuel Married then Her Hippo Every day he’s a dick Strong one Great one The man above A name A word I’m smiling constantly and people constantly step on me I’d like to run away with you on a plane but don’t bring those loafers That silly woman’s done a too-straight fringe A baby’s appearance More espresso less depresso Solutions for damp since 1971 But I can rebuild I’m a devious snake and I keep it in my wig room Well Well well well Well well well I’m inside the gate, it’s a tiny little area and it’s rammed, everything’s going great so far. Got my shorts on in preparation for the hot, these idiots in trousers, they don’t know what they’re doing. Feel like I wanna send you twenty texts. Let me know when you’re inside the plane. I’m smiling constantly and people constantly step on me

New Long Leg 04:12
You are No you are Let me see your knees Peas rolling A useless long leg Are you taking a photo or drinking a bottle of water? You’re a spoon pal You are Doo doo doo don’t remember anyone, sorry Doo doo doo I ask you Sometimes like this Sometimes like this A useless long leg Will there be a hairdryer in my state room or should I bring one? What about shampoo? Will we be able to have laundry done on the ship? And what are the prices? Are there some kind of reverse platforms, shoes that make you go into the ground more, make you reach a lower level? Nevermind Would you choose a dentist with a messy back garden like that? I don’t think so Doo doo doo don’t remember anyone I ask you Sometimes like this Sometimes like this A useless long leg Sunburnt chin A raw drawn-on eyebrow You are No you are A useless long leg You are Doo doo doo don’t remember anyone, sorry Doo doo doo I ask you Sometimes like this Sometimes like this A useless long leg This new bloody big problem No more shared sundae This absolutely huge fuck up

John Wick 03:26
No that’s not true Eyes drift to the TV Mostly uncles and fathers Mostly eating nuts, seeds and berries What do you think your parents feel? That nod that says, “I’ve seen things” They’ve really changed the pace of The Antiques Roadshow More antiques, more price reveals Less background information The reason the price reveals were so good was because we had to wait for them Where these bin men at then? I like your wardrobe but I never know if it’s ok to take the clothes Hold on to your beehive Mostly uncles and fathers Mostly eating nuts, seeds and berries What do you think your parents feels? That nod that says, “I’ve seen things” Someone pissed on my leg in the big Sainsbury’s If you’re an Aries Then I’m an Aries Raincoat sweat A poster An Elmo costume A young guy on a ski holiday Naked muscly loner A young guy on a ski holiday A poster An Elmo costume What can I say? A drawstring dog bag A young guy on a ski holiday

Brain replaced by something With only the side of my nose for company These and those and them ones What d’you call it It’ll come to me Brain replaced by something With only the side of my nose for company These and those and them ones What d’you call it The unnameable It’ll come to me Trapped inside a head In control in the kitchen area I run a tight ship Spatula pot and crumb tray A wipeable place A greaseproof type of thing Da da da da Da da da da Da da da da da da ah Da da da da da da da ah Da da da da da da Da da da da ah Green food Brown food Brain replaced by something These and those and them ones A floating dumpling Baggy eyes I run a tight ship Helicopter circling Kalashnikov to look forward to It’s a glam musical Da da da da Da da da da Da da da da da da ah Da da da da da da da ah Da da da da da da Da da da da ah

A.L.C 03:09
You can’t just come into my garden in your football kit and start asking questions about who lives here Who’s asking? It’s a memory of a café That you loved But you didn’t have anyone to take there They had a sushi counter and a counter that did pastries and mixed salads In Hendon I’m tall when I’m young And I’m short when I’m old I can’t change A lonely job for £45 a day A lonely job for £32 a day Just take it Things are changing Time to shut up old actors Time to fix old pants Time to get fed up Telephone call comes through the wall A sunny day with a grey sky A wonky parking job for cheap chocolate mousse Things are changing Things are changing You You foil beast! You foil beast You foil beast Talk to me in the bath ‘ba dum’

It’s chocolate chip cookie Crappy crazy pizzas Your haircut’s changed It’s every day carry You’re a gift to me Nice party ice You’re an individual cream bun It’s chocolate chip cookie Crappy crazy pizzas It’s all good though Look at that Looks like good quality earth I’m just a conduit Don’t look at me I’m just the medium Your haircut’s changed For charity Can you imagine the rent? I want big pearl A people person These are the eyeholes A banging pasta bake Müller corner, onions, orchids The smear test blues Put a shawl on that mannequin mate Can you imagine the rent? I want big pearl It’s a light emitting diode It’s a long nail story It’s a dead hand tree Best friends forever It’s everyday carry It’s bad luck if you’re the tree left at the edge of the motorway when they clear the forest for a motorway, you lose your friends and you’re exposed. You used to be in the thick of it, everything you knew ripped away Two fingers up to you, you wastrel, that’s my shopping trolley you’re approaching Uninviting, just body bits Your haircuts changed You’re a gift to me Nice party ice You’re an individual cream bun Look at that Uninviting, just body bits Your haircut’s changed I don’t know how I feel he’s fit but I think he might be Residual Pop Rocks in the mouth of your cab driver Drop what you’re doing let’s get to the tip Droopy flute solo comes in now Galump lump Huge white geese please us all Major massive arsehole All the children say I’ve got enchanted eggs My beautiful restaurant Let’s go Jim My beautiful restaurant - Now it seems like none of that meant anything A sugared armpit A roast potato on a long branch More spice Plans conceived in love A Ferrari with a license plate that says T337H Bambino What a cruel heartless bastard you are Welcome to hell Keep up with it all, be nice, try to maintain high energy and don’t bring everyone down In matching soft brown tank top I just can’t creep comfortably anymore Paper thin skin covers hands and hollow cheeks Must I look at my belly in the mirror? Must I belly in the mirror? A thing in the past Your own personal fatberg, homemade I’m confused Ready to cut loose Sherlock Holmes Museum of break ups Wait an hour for a pancake, make it larger, build it up I don’t mind I’m happy either way I dunno What’s the point You actually smell like garbage Every one of them looks a tit I’m not gonna lie, it’s daunting choreography but I’m gonna bring it all the same I just want to put something positive into the world but it’s hard because I’m so full of poisonous rage It’s all well and good you saying that but I need more Keep up with it all, be nice I just can’t creep comfortably Curtains always closed
