about

Somewhere in Malmo there is a place where the air reeks of static and the night sky casts a balmy glow. The youths are impertinent and cagey a rare breed born of indifference and cynicism. The authorities do their level best to curb the appetite of such beasts but where boredom and apathy lay the Devil is sure to follow.

bel?lig?er?ent - Pronunciation: \-r?nt\ Function: adjective
Etymology: modification of Latin belligerant-, belligerans, present participle of belligerare to wage war, from belliger waging war, from bellum + gerere to wage
Date: 1577

lyrics

Belligerent
Gave my heart to a vegetarian and said eat it before it gets cold.
Her manners were quite good she carved it up and then turned up
her nose. I'm sitting in front of this photoplay trying to think of
something clever, but the stink of desperation clings to my pink
sweater. There's worms in my guts and this nausea knows no
cure.
You push & we'll push back now...
You push & we'll push back now...
The wool over my eyes has me shit starved and poor.
The cotton in my head might cushion all the blows of the hooks
and crosses life throws. But muted senses makes a man witless,
doves set fire to my skull, burn what's left and pray for rain and
hope to wash it clean again.
You push & we'll push back now...
Giants still roam the earth and they leave impressions ocean size.
I wade in the water and do my best just to survive.
But the shores a distant dream...
and it's become clear to me that my dreams don't mean anything.
You push & we'll push back now...
You push & we'll push back now...

Primitive & grounded, folk-tales connect seemingly disparate genres into a single curbstone philosophy “SOAP BOX MUSIC”. Converging African polyrhythms with punk-rock dissonance. Combining swing, rock-steady and rhythm & blues… Sarcastic and sentimental; Agitated and serene, they are a throwback to the Negro spirituals and the American folk tradition. ... more
