Blang MKAN01: 7th May 2007
1. Here Ya Come Again & Again
“The night is dark, he’ll keep it low key, the moon smirks, whilst the stars spit on me”
2. I Want My MTV To Want Me
“I hang out with all the CEOs and gliteratay, be at the after shows and private partays, but I’ve a Kentucky Fried Chicken bucket for a head, and not enough rumours about the girls that ‘ave been inside my bed”
Milk Kan’s last insanely brilliant single ‘Bling Bling Baby’ ruffed up Bob Dylan‘s ‘Subterranean Homesick Blues’ and updated it for the times we live in. This time they’ve decided to sample/pervert Dolly Parton‘s 1977 song ‘Here You Come Again’. Milk Kan have turned it into a love/hate ode to their dealer with a nod to The Velvet Underground‘s 1967 classic ‘I’m Waiting For The Man’. The combination of Dolly’s catchy chorus and Milk Kan’s funny and poetic lyrics is totally irresistible. ‘I Want My MTV To Want Me’ is an almost equally catchy Lo-Fi Pop-Punk thrasher with the second best lyric this year to mention Danny Glover (After ‘Thou Shalt Always Kill’ of course).
