If anybody has lyrics to the new TOS record [i]Carrion Crawler/The Dream[i] could you please post them. Specifically the songs "Opposition" and "The Dream." Thanks.

Buy the album, they're all in there. Good stuff too!

Lyrics!!?? I haven't given a damn about lyrics in years. Every album is a Davilla 666 album to me.

same for me. once in a while something stands out though. i've always considered vocals to be just another instrument.

OCS vocal delivery is unique, and fun. They strike a pretty awesome balance between vocal instrumentation and singing. I'm thankful for their lyric sheets though, my kind of poetry anyway. Plus, the big WOOOO! in The Dream kills!

I only have two Oh Sees records - that split LP with Intelligence and the 7" split with Jay. Everything else I have is live (3 sets, I think, and supposed to be getting another from when vi played with them), and it occurred to me I have no idea what not only the lyrics are, but I have no idea what the song titles are, either.

Yeah lyrics schmiricks...my drummer wrote a song about asking his fiancee to marry him...I didn't raise an eyebrow, 'it's just words man' ha ha.


then they wanted to use some lyrics I wrote 6 years ago, about cleaning my bathtub so I could fuck in it....I was like "whatever."

I hate words...talk is cheap.

There's a song that goes along with the bathtub song my band does, it's a variation on the twist and the NFL shuffle called The Soft Scrub.

Heard it..that might be who I stole the concept from...but I took it the extra mile....it's the only lyrics I've submitted so far that haven't been censored extensively.

I can't seem to write anything but pornographic lyrics these days...I think the last song had a line "piss in your face" that got turned into "Staire at your face."

Well yeah, my band asked what the hell is wrong with me and all I can figure is the Angry Samoans, NWA, Andre Williams, and Devil Dogs made me think sexualy graphic lyrics are cool.

I just said, "I don't know. What's wrong with you guys? You're afraid of sex?"

That's my attitude towards people who want me to shut up also.

I've listened to that double ep. I like most of Thee O Sees, but sometimes they get sloppy.
Same here:
side one - sounds to me like tasteless left overs
side two - not bad at all

what is this past tense bullshit about purple rain?

ohsees records haven't been melting me since warm slime, but nanne, if you haven't seen them live, I'd roll a wheelchair 3 miles to go see em. They just keep getting faster, tighter, and wilder. And I've probably seen them 10+ times since 2007.

Help LP came with lyrics. except it seemed like he wasn't singing half the shit written on the LP. It seems like Carrion Crawler would be a similar deal.

Geez, you guys are making me think i'm really missing something when I don't go to the 20 or so OhSees shows around here every month. I mean, I like the OhSees but even pecan pie gets tiresome after a week or so

I've heard that before.
I sure would love to see them.

O, I wouldn't need a weelchair, once and for all, I am not crippled, that's just a slur, I can walk around the house al day long, cause when I fall over, some fungus will catch me. It's the standing up all the time at a show wiithout a drink and a cigarette to hold on to, that I can't do for a few years now.
My eyes need glasses., a few pair even. Nothing weird about that.
My legs need more power, and I will get it back in there, by god I will.

I checked out Thee Oh Sees very late, a band with a name like that, the man behind it - not my package. So I was very surprised when I heard Melted. I really like that one. Got all the other stuff, and I also think they were better in the beginning. But I still check 'm out and play 'm a lot, cause it's almost a new band for me.

I didn't buy the last one. Too sloppy.

you've been instrumental in fagging this place up

I am willing to take responsibility for a lot that happened here the last days. After all, some pm's played the biggest role and you folks don't know what's in it.

But, BJ accusing me of 'fagging' this place up is such a grotesk remark that I have to react.
Emo Joe brought a guy to this place, his best friend he said - has anyone ever seen proof of that? - and all they did was fight and fight like it was the worst soap opera ever.

Emo Joe then started his emo tour. Many Topics or posts of his began with I'm Crying All Day Long or I Can't Sleep, What should I do/ et cetera. His best friend that he brought with him to feel safer on the board, turned into a nightmare for everyone that took his shit seriously. Loud Mouth No. 1 was born. He also became a nightmare for Emo Joe.
And this friend of Mr Tears, of mister I Poop Standing Up, is the only one that gayed up this place. Because he is a copcaller and a big fuckin pussy.

Never blame me for shit that has nothing to do with me, BJ, even though you want your surrogate daddy back. You've tried everything and he will never like you. Give it up. Stop crying about it and above all: stop gaying this place up, MR 69 Tears.
You will be known from now on as Emo Joe, who found a nerve since he's got a job. As if other people don't work the most awful jobs. Humility, Emo Joe, cause you are still nothing but a fart and you will always stay a loser cause you have no backbone whatsoever. And you can't grow those, dipshit, in case you haven't heard, or payed attention at junior high when you still had the biggest record collection of 'm all.

Now you and your al-bundy-dad better stop gaying this place up. You're both pussies and cowards. Stop it. Otherwise we'll soon be having smiley's here to put in our posts.

See we were all having a conversation about music, but then folks got testy. Ban everyone!!!

Someone should provide Cliff Notes about the history of goner board hatred and rivalry. With some back story, I would have a better understanding of the ridiculous flaming. Then maybe we could all have a good laugh at how irrational we've been. Or not.

That would provide no one with a better understanding of anything. I love how every description of the Goner Board on the internet mentions something about old men who like to bicker.

Back in my day there was no edit option...you wrote your vile hit enter and that was it...no take backs. We played for keeps. I didn't even bother to proof and was drunk most of the time so many of my posts were incoherent.

I actualy thought Bazooka was talking about me fagging the place up, so I had a pointed comment for him, but then realized it was Nanne as usual, and was quick to change my phrasing...and I even like Bazooka.

I've learned about alot of cool things from this board over the years, that's why I'm always checking back....but yeah if anyone is keeping tabs on the rivalry they should probbably get a life. Sure Ed Oblivian and Tim Warren got into it on here years ago, that's business related...sure people get divorced and they get married to other Goner spooks, who cares.....sure most of us only wish to be famous so we can dis eachother in a larger more superficial forum...I'd like to dis the entire last decade....who cares?

That was some crazy shit man.

'Boohooo: I've lost my best friend, boohoo.'

Let me get this straight-- you continuinlly talk shit to everyone here, you contend that there is very little merit of any opinions, you challenge Robin personallly for yr computer issues, and you have some sort of breakdown wherein you post repeatedly someones flippant response at you?
In all that you expect some sort ot sympathy for some undefinable ailment, threaten to kneecap people and seem to think that other's ongoing falling out are justification for this behaviour?
I can only assume in progressive Denmark you might qualify for some kind of real therapy. It might be preferential to the therapy you seek on a message board thousands of miles from yr home filled w/good people who obviously have an interest in progressive behaviour and a genuine interest in functioning in an independent fashion.

bwahaaaaaaa.

BJ:
You know exactly what I'm talking about

In all that you expect some sort ot sympathy for some undefinable ailment, threaten to kneecap people and seem to think that other's ongoing falling out are justification for this behaviour?

o yeah, baby,
sympathy is what I came here for
I thought, Sympathy= Goner Board, doesn't matterif you're a loser, a dickhead or an asshole. Sympathy is what you get, while you listen to the Reatards on your headphones.

You wanna talk Gonerfest and Robin? Go fuck yourself. I'm done talking about that bullshit. If you can't understand that someone get's pissed off like hell when a complete G.F. goes to hell one minute before it starts, you don't even belong here.

I posted loads of stuff about music here. It's all gone now. You nitwits only know the music that's on the Goner Shopping Card, which means your life is empty and senseless and hasn't progressed. You are all still in highschool, waiting for a grouphug or a All Together Now Ambush. First the real assholes to check out if it's safe enough, and then you wannabe's join in.
You sad wankers only post if someone else already posted the same.

While BJ and Ned finally turned this place into Termbo Two you pretended to be asleep.

Remember BJ, that the lady who I am talking about had me put up as a hero on her facebook, while I kicked your ass every day?

I do apologise to the lady, from the bottom of my heart, by the way.

But you guys are maggots, losers and kiddies, and yeah, I only come to your schoolyard to

All that jibber jabber and no one's standing up for writing some interesting lyrics? I mean, I get it. You don't have to tell a story, you can be as abstract as you want to. "the voice as just another instrument" idea works and all, you can just push together words that have syllables that sound nice next to each other. I enjoy it sometimes too, but at the end of the day it feels like junk food. No substance, it's all carbs and sugar. After the initial rush of catchy instrumentation, effects loops, sludgy recording, or whatever grabbed me, I like something I can chew on later during repeated listens. Like good or interesting lyrics. But this is a disposable culture so the perspective makes sense, I just don't like it. And, by the way, I'm not commenting on the oh sees or anyone else, I.m not critiquing. I'm saying, as a listener, I can't repeatedly listen to something that I find meaningless.

i think most people feel that way, i just have never been one to pay too much attention to them, probably because i'm too stupid for poetry. i think i said above that sometimes something jumps out and catches my ear, whether it's a good line or a bad one. i like when that happens because i don't have an attention span that alows me to sit and pay attention to every uttered word. clay from the subsonics can write some cool lines. i like the jokey stuff alot. blues lyrics... but when you're djing are you really looking for meaning? i think sometimes you just get lucky when you're playing a dance record and it has some memorable lines like this nonsensical nursery rhyme song. i fully support music with lyrics like these. it's about all i'm personally equipped to comprehend:

Probbably the only lyrics that have captured my imagination in recent years are from Goner local legends The Staags! cdr...

One: call the cops.
Two: complain to your landlord
Three: write to your congressman
Four: call the cops again


Now those are lyrics you can chew on.

I like instructional songs, like "put the lime in the coconut and shake it all around" or "you put your left foot in, you put your left foot out you do the hokey pokey and you shake it all about."

That's what I like, as an intellectual I like to always be learning new things.

Especially when it leads to putting stuff places and shaking.

I think a guy who always yells that he is the biggest Cheater Slicks fan in the world, but also states that he never listens to lyrics, is just a very dumb person. But I already knew that this guy was dumber than a watermelon.

I recently wrote an American friend what I think about your lyrics, but wont repeat it here, cause the nutcases here will only make fun of it.

I worked for a glossy mag where the editors never listened to lyrics, which made them very stupid music journalists.

And so on.

I think it is the dumbest thing if you don't listen to lyrics, but hey, I only came here to play.

I can't repeatedly listen to something that I find meaningless

Good song lyrics can be more comforting than the best novels or poetry out there.

That's why everyone who comes to this board and asks for lyrics get's killed right away.

All that jibber jabber and no one's standing up for writing some interesting lyrics? I mean, I get it.

greg, your comments are just as arbitrary as bj saying "vocals are another instrument". There's a time and place to be Bob Dylan or Gil Scott-Heron, and there's a time and place to be lyrically abstract and all that. If the whole package works, then the music will have staying power. you love what you love for the reasons that you love it.

shit, i grew up in Detroit in the early/mid 90's, where EVERYTHING was either garage rock, (vocal-less) techno, psych rock, or post-grunge drivel. The focus of almost every music scene in town was on aesthetic, heart/soul, and getting your feet moving versus literacy. I'm glad that has stuck with me.

One of the reasons I love ECSR so much is that their lyrics are simple and borderline boneheaded, but they ring so true and fit so well on top of the music and moods that they create. I got Primary Colors right after my dad passed away, and I still can't listen to "memory lane" around other people.

Another example is someone enjoying gospel and sacred harp music, but not being a christian.

but as soon as I start about music, people here get Nam flashbacks.

actually it seems like when people STOP talking about music, the Nam flashbacks start. More than anywhere else I've haunted on the internet, it's hard for people on this board to constructively talk about art without a bunch of people pissing on them. The epic dichotomy of "enjoying cool stuff and agreeing with other cool people who like cool stuff" versus "if you like something that more than one other person here thinks is cool you are only here to tug on the nuts of the scene" is fucking turned up to 11 here.

so let me ensure that my memphis scene points are forever err, in the red: I think the first two Arcade Fire records are great lyrically, and I own a Kylie Minogue picture disc.

Brainbombs are pretty much unlistenable because their lyrics are so obvious.

I'd rather listen to Flipper or Drunks with Guns b/c their lyrical stupidity is perfect.

One rather startling addition is "All Good Women," with a chorus of "All good men beat their women, all good boys beat their girls." It's about the circle of violence, Mr. Kastelic says -- people returning to abusive relationships because that's the only attention they're getting.

"People are saying it's a pro-misogynistic song or something, and anyone who knows me knows that I'm certainly not misogynistic and certainly not into abuse, getting or giving, but it's something I can understand."

I think it is a matter of lyrics serving the song and vice/versa. They are absolutely important in so much as they fit and convey something. I love Drunks with Guns and Lungfish and though it is hard to imagine two more different collections of lyrics both approach near perfection as those songs go.
Posted: Dec 2, 2011 4:21 pm
 
I haven't listened to Lungfish but when I looked them up it didn't look like anything I'd like. Strike 1: it's on Dischord. Strike 2: taoist poetry over post-rock.

K, have you listened to Oxbow? The singer seems like a pretty amusing guy.

HAH! I was just slogging through this thread. I've used the "lyrics as instrument" explanation for years. Because I can't write worth a shit. I'll admit it. Have no problems with it. Same reason I play guit the way I do. limited skills. Ain't to worried about it. That's what I do. it's different for everybody and no one opinion fucking matters. I love good lyrics. Of course half the time I think I know the lyrics to a song I like, I've heard it wrong and sing it that way in my head for years. blah blah blah....

usually a thread will have a common theme or thought process but this is just too much. tigerblinds is a bit of a crackpot, but his thoughts do usually follow a progression that is understandable. nanne i was able to communicate with for years in emails and do business with, but when it comes to the shit talk, i guess it just doesnt translate most of the time. every now and then he hits a home run, but if he is winning otherwise its only because of volume, not content. bazooka joe is easy enough to decipher as he rarely is capable of stringing more than two sentences together, or maybe thats just his style. then there is cole and rayultine, who are exactly what this scene needs if it wants to survive, fresh blood, and everyone seems to be doing their best to chase them away! theres mark beef, who used to actually be funny tossing off a couple uninspired one liners, and the rest of the goner board crew who have been either bored or faithful enough to hang around this ghost town, doing their best to try and have an actual discussion. this place is fucked, has been fucked for years, yet i still keep coming back for more. its like watching a car accident over and over, or when buildings collapse. you people are all fucked, myself included. this thread is flat out terrible, and shitty reading.

Thanks, Sam. I will check that out. Lungfish are wordy and easy to toss into the post- rock bin but they do something unique and at times beyond engaging. On top of all that Daniel is an incredible frontman and a tatoo artist that walked away when he realised he had created/ inspired a monster. And they are Baltimore, not DC, which speaks to my rust belt roots. The bottom corner of industrtial collapse.
Posted: Dec 2, 2011 7:09 pm
 
But on the entire idea of lyrics, I think that often ambition is construed as pretense. Yes, I hate the fact that Colin Molloy and his precious crap is shoved at me living here as much as I like Willy Vlaulin. There is a point that lyrically things have to evolve. If that means more funny and refined or if it means exploring more complex themes, that is how it should go. Personally, Break Up Break Down came out at a very difficulf time in my life and I will never forget playing Risk w/the RB and hearing that record over and over. It was different but obviously speaking to us as, um, older listeners than listening to No reason to Live 18 times in a row. Something I had also done.

I understand what you're saying but I have to say I disagree with you. While I enjoy a story or lyrics that actually have a point, it's a rarity that I don't think lyrics of that type are pretentious and usually don't work. I don't believe it has anything to do with our "disposable culture" either as "junk food" lyrics have been the hallmark of rock and roll since it began...Little Richard, Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry. As for meaningless being rendered unable to withstand repeated listens I don't buy that. Louie Louie is still the king!
Posted: Dec 4, 2011 2:55 am
 
I don't think you understand what I'm saying. I love Bo, Little Richard and Chuck Berry and if you think their lyrics are in any way representational of the kind of lyrics I'm talking about I know for sure you don't understand what I'm saying. The lyrics don't have to be deep or as well crafted as say "Chuck Berry" but they do have to strike me as interesting. Yeah sometimes I like songs where the vocal is just a big storm cloud of distortion. I'm just saying it's nice when it also hits me with some level of sincerity, humor, stupidity, or desperation conveyed through words. Carrying a value equal and additional to being the decoration to the riff they are ridding on. I don't think it's a coincidence that the records that have the whole package(to me) are the ones that survive the pruning process of my records over the decades. This is just my personal preference and was only meant as a response to Joe's remark that he didn't really care much about lyrics. I think you guys are taking it too seriously.

I listened to the Flat Duo Jet's White Trees LP today. A couple times back to back On most of the songs I have no idea what Dexter is going on about. Rarely do any of the songs seem to hold one train of thought for very long. But at the same time I feel like he is reading something very personal. Almost like a diary or something. I loved the misfits when I was in my teens and Glen's sometimes indecipherable howl did not prevent me from loving them. On the contrary, it drove me and millions of other teens to figure out what he was talking about. Turns out they were mostly movie reviews. And just look at him now. every bit as well known as Slayer.

By "jobless out of touch artists" I mostly meant the emo brats in my town who's Mom and Dads have supported them well into their thirties.....or they have been living off of wellfare all this time.

But yeah, pretty much the spoiled ass unemployable segment of society that can't hold down a part time job or even long term friends for that matter. But sit around on their high horses pointing fingers because they realy have nothing better to do.

I was talking with a friend yesterday and there was full agreement that "white trees" is a moment of greatness. It is time for a vinyl issue of this record. It could even fly as a "light in the attic" release as there is kind of an acoustic "outsider" vibe that is not to be found on any other FDJ album. Interludes of banjo connecting songs. Tracks dashed midway due to broken guitar strings. It feels like it's all unfolding right in front of you. And, it's not all scuzzed out and sounding like it was recorded in an empty high school gymnasium with one mic. The production quality is fairly clean. Sounds really good.

can't stand kevin smith's hokum

Yeah, I wasn't expecting much but thought it was actually pretty good. He did a great job of making all the characters unlikeable. John Goodman was also good.

I like that song on "Safari" where he's recording in some UNC lecture hall and a little over the half way mark, some idiot student comes in and tells him he's trying to study and he's not supposed to be in there. I don't know, until that point it sounds pretty cool and polished to me, I wouldn't have known it wasn't some slick studio track with fancy rackmount eventide nonsense to get that "old timey" sound.

Go Go Harlem Baby is a great album. White Trees, however, is the acme of rock and roll pulchritude. There's a real feeling of desperation in there that grabs me every time. Simultaneously rocking and unnerving. "A UFO came and blew this world to bits" in a love/lust song ? Is that what Dex & Crow feared ? Or, is that what they desired ? Is 'Michelle' from outer space ?

Man. i love this movie....I understand that it's flawed, the ending is pretty bad......I just like it. It's like an album that you know isn't that great but you keep listening to it because it just grabs you. I own the blu ray and have watched about 6 or 7 times.

tigerblinds i dont care how "productive" you are, you're still a total fucking crackpot. take your college degree and 40 hour work week and stick 'em where the sun dont shine. dont matter how "productive" one is or is not, you are still a fuckin' nutjob, so deal with it.

and before you attack the messenger again, let me preemptively assert: i never claimed to be anything other than what you say i am. i dont have a college degree and cant hold a job down for shit, that doesnt make you any less of a crackpot.

I've been lying in wait to comment on lyrics/vocals/asst. drugs/faggotry /ass-rape, etc.

Here's what I think. I think that if you have lyrics that are beatnik poetry, Bohemian, etc. the vocals SHOULD override the music, since there really isn't a theme to it anyway and it's up to the listener to decide what the song is about, like most Electric Eels songs. If the song has a theme to it, (por ejemplo) Hawkwind's-- "Ejection" the music adds a synergistic effect to the lyrics. In all honesty, I have no preference. Listen to some of the instrumentals that Booker T. and the MGs have provided over the years. I dig "Johnny, I Love You".

I cornered King Buzzo one time and I asked him if the lyrics to "Hog Leg" actually meant anything. He looked startled for a second or two, and his response was that he had no idea what he was going to sing when he walked into the recording studio. He just "went with it". Now that's taking shit it to the next level. Scat's cool but then you add it to feedback and metal it really expands your world.

when you look at it, nothing means anything. Really. Dale Crover looks like a peckerwood who just got out of rehab.

holy shit, it's alienator!

no way! i mean, it could have been better on a production level, and maybe a bit longer for more character development, but still pretty good.

Please [i]Red State[i] is a total shit movie. Smith hasn't done anything worth a shit since Jersey Girl and I'll stand by that.

fair enough, i saw it once and will probably never see it again. i ain't about to waste any time defending it. but i liked it, and i'm confident that i don't like anything that's total shit, but i have no idea who the fuck you are except that you want some oh sees lyrics. never saw jersey girl, but jay and silent bob rule!

This messageboard is big enough for rightwing fatheads and the ever so allusive leftwing fathead as well:




Youtube is fuckin up, I will have to upload this again at some point.

But yeah, it is what it is...I like the primal crude stuff.

I will grant you this, I have to add Clerks 2 as well, great flick. Smith's movies just took a dump, but his monologues and q&a's are fucking hilarious. The grammer shit was just chirping, meant no offense by it.
Posted: Dec 6, 2011 4:53 pm
 
jay and silent bob strike back was the only KS movie I ever remotely enjoyed
I thought Clerks 2 was glaringly obvious unfunny shit, much like Family Guy
