Sad Gnome Records SG0701: 26th February 2007
1. The Last Significant Statement To Be Made In Rock ‘n’ Roll
“Once in a corridor in Memphis, was a singer took a breath, and wrote the birth of the teenager, now we come to write his death”
“Drop ace drum ‘n’ bass feat Hitler and Chairman Mao, if we don’t do it now then someone else will, it’ll be so funny, it’s the power not the money”
“My heroine is on heroin, but not bad heroin, the good heroin that Rock stars take”
4. Unity Mitford (Acoustic)
“The indescribable beauty of a million hands raised to salute you, like poppies lean when winds caress them, cut flowers pressed to solemn duty”
5. Stars (Live)
“I’m in love with the boy next door, he treats me like a filthy whore”
6. The Last Significant Remix
“We’ve learned a lot of bitter lessons, seen the way ideas age, seen the lies and the boredom, seen the coming final page”
‘The Last Significant Statement To Be Made In Rock ‘n’ Roll’ kicks off with a menacing riff and turns into a tirade against the lack of real passion in music. It’s not as gobsmacking as their last single ‘We Hate The Kids’ but then again it’s a much more lyrically subtle beast. The words of ‘Sixteen’ continue in a similar vein of dissatisfaction but this time they’re soundtracked by sparkling Pop with an addictive handclap break. It’s a more direct assault against cynical bands who aim their music at the lucrative teen market. ‘Heroin’ is an ironic look at the falsely glamorous image Heroin has in the music world. It’s a piano lament, with some of the best rhymes ever, like “She’s not dirty, she’s past thirty”.
The last three songs are sort of bonus tracks, one acoustic, one live and one remix. ‘Unity Mitford’ was an associate of Hitler and the mother of Mosley’s wife. ‘Stars’ is a song about the transience of life with the kind of Guitar noodling not heard since Queen’s heyday. Lastly, ‘The Last Significant Remix’ is a deep remix in the style of mid-period Prodigy.
