WHITE APE – Aiming For Their Proper Celebrity Skin Division…

Black - kopie - kopie - kopie

Writing wise-ass songs about rock & roll legends is a dangerous enterprise. It can kill or inflame your career. But in the case of mental London punk combo WHITE APE we have
a complete different story. First of all I’m damn sure they don’t give a flying fuck about a bloody career and secondly if nobody wants them they will go just right back to their old jobs: selling bad acid to failed British politicians (David Cameron is waiting impatiently, he’s in great need). Anyway, calling your new shot COURTNEY LOVE WILL TEAR US APART is genial. Yes, none of us came up with that apparently simple, yet sickly smart title, they did. But what about the music, I hear you ask? Glorious in your face havoc, folks. An irresistible punk groove that will make your drunk feet go bananas, biting vocals with a Rotten sneer and a scream along chorus that will invoke enough decibel at gigs to break Berlin walls with. That other mental London punk combo Fat White Family should take these apes on tour and start a revolution together. Yes, they are totally ready for some celebrity skin. Now, let’s all dance to the radio…

.
Sing it loud, sing it proud…

If I was a woman I’d be Courtney Love,
killing teenagers with a razor glove
I tried to be nice to get to heaven above
but it wasn’t in me when push comes to shove

You think you’re shit hot and you’re half right x3
You think you’re shit hot

He thinks that he’s clever cos he spends his time thinking,
thinking about how clever he is
I know you’re rich and you know you’re handsome,
you write a good tune but so could Charles Manson

You think you’re shit hot and you’re half right x3
You think you’re shit hot

In twenty years where do you see your daughter?
With a rifle up a tower, guarding the last of the water
I taught her to slaughter, to get ahead in the pecking order

You think you’re shit hot and you’re half right x3
You think you’re shit hot

It’s like The Beatles on acid
It’s like The Beatles on acid
It’s like The Beatles on more acid
It’s like the Beatles on Better Acid
It’s like Sun Ra, Lee Perry, Captain Beefheart and Syd Barrett jamming…
In a big brass bell, on The Moon
It’s like if Motown was in Madchester and
Madchester was on the Missisipi delta but also in Memphis
It’s like Giorgio Moroder and Sonic Youth team up
to rewrite the Dr Who theme tune
It’s like if Madonna was born in Sheffield
in the post-punk era
It’s like if the Fall went to San Francisco,
It’s like if Jimi Hendrix went disco,
It’s like if BeyoncĂ© joined the Pistols
It’s like The Beatles on acid
It’s like The Beatles on acid
It’s like The Beatles on more acid
It’s like the Beatles on Better Acid

You think you’re shit hot and you’re half right x3
You think you’re shit hot
