Nomadic NOMAD010CD: 27th March 2006
"I’m always in debt to her, my foppish knees enjoy her chez-longue"
2. Drums In Der Night
"A Woody Allen winter, age old lines, told of old age"
3. World Of Fashion
"Purposefully drawing blood from the showroom next door, his wife's a dish I'd love to send back to ask for more"
5. (I'm Gonna Get That) Rabbit
"Darling you've got mechanical aid from something, I feel held though like you'd practised care"
'Celine' sounds like The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster but with a duet between Axl Rose and David Byrne going on over the top. If you intend to buy this song, I'd suggest also purchasing a long girlie wig so you can head bang along in style.
'Drums In Der Night' sounds most like the Brakes and has a fantastic bit two thirds through where it cuts right back to the drums and guitar. The lyrics mention cocaine, fish, drums, candles and Woody Allen… I haven't a clue what they're about. But they sound great.
'World Of Fashion' is a tale of middle aged wife swapping parties. Musically it sounds like The Mars Volta. It builds up the tension ever so slowly and threatens to erupt, but always seems to hold something back.
'Threebie' sounds like it's been taken straight off a Jim Noir record. It's a very short and it could also have worked on The White Album. It's mostly an instrumental except that there are constant insane and incomprehensible whispers in the background.
'(I'm Gonna Get That) Rabbit' sounds a little like Muse (Except that I detest Muse, while I love this). It's got some guys speaking French in the background, which translates as "I make love like a rabbit". Then the singer threatens to rip the rabbit's stuffing out.
The band that made this EP must be absolutely bonkers and seem to try to occupy as many different genres as possible (Check out their rather long list of influences on their MySpace page). Based on the strength of this I’m going to have to get myself a copy of their first EP.
