supercharged with real jinglyjangly gitness

Yay! A new cd by Colin Newman, Malka Spigel, Max Franken & Robin ‘Scanner’ Rimbaud! Musically, I’m not as charmed as I was by Art Pop“, the previous, 3rd Githead album (2007), but Landing(2009-11) has as great a set of lyrics as ever, e.g. “Over the limit” (see below) or the valentinesey “Transmission tower” … Furver furfing via http://www.githead.com/ + http://myspace.com/githead + http://www.swimhq.com/ + the rather unlikely wiki … and of course the archive where you can find a Colin Newman interview ànd our no downloadable AV files policy! (Great to see CN’s still got his sense of insult btw.)

Over The Limit

Talent free fame, over hyped fare,
Celebrity stiffs, dubious gifts
Never ever paying, keep freeloading,
“I’m cool”, give it here
Your dad’s records, not quite forgotten,
Patchy memory? More easy pickings
Choc full tube, red light stop,
Cold at dusk, early dark.

Lack of discretion, lack of taste,
Lack of judgment, lack of space
Pecking orders, concrete borders,
Bust & boom, prophets of doom
Too much money, too many gods,
Too much pride, too many opinions
Too much hate, too much stupidity,
Too many mugs, too little hope.

Spam fissures, surfeit of knowledge,
History victors, instant experts
Stolen music, arsehole managers,
Pompous gits, celebrity shits
British spin, the way they sell it,
Ticking boxes, guilt in giving,
White van vandals, black economy,
Token spokesmen, endless analysis.

Lack of discretion, lack of taste,
Lack of judgment, lack of space
Pecking orders, concrete borders,
Bust & boom, prophets of doom
Too much money, too many gods,
Too much pride, too many opinions
Too much hate, too much stupidity,
Too many mugs, too little hope.
