I dreamt about you last

and i fell out of bed twice

You can pin and mount me like a butterfly

Take me to the haven of your bed

Was something that you never said

Two lumps please, your the bees knees

But so am I.

Well, kids, here's the latest release from The King Kitty Band (that's my band, for those who've not been paying attention...trust me, you're not alone). So new, we don't even have a video for it yet. That's why we thought we'd try out the Reverbnation embed thing.

 

"Rise of the Sheep, Pt. 1"

 

The sheep have been awaken by the sheepdogs' thundering bass, rousing drums and their barking and howling guitars. The sheep have become aware of their restrictions and confinement lorded over them by the farmers. "You thought you had in a slumber. You thought that we'd obey." they begin to chant. Soon they begin to express their pent up anger, "We're mad as hell! We're mad as hell! We're mad as hell! Gonna take it no more!". As the barn burns, the sheep and sheepdogs descend upon the farmers' homes with pitch forks, torches and bullhorns.

 

A leader arises among their ranks. As the others chant, "We've had enough!", their newly crowned leader shouts their complaints and demands, "We've had enough of your lack of action! We've had enough of your spineless ways! We've had enough, we want satisfaction! We've had enough! And we won't obey!" They return to chanting and begin to burn the farmers' houses down, as they did their own barn.

 

As the song fades out, you hear the cloven hoofs of the sheep stomping as they carry off the shock and awed farmers.

 

End of part one.

I can't really bring myself to listen to rock or hip hop anymore so here is something wholesome.

 


Still feel the same Enigmatic? 
I only ask as I'm a fan of all genres but main part of my childhood was in the early 80's listening to the elctro stuff and breakdancing with my mates on a cardboard matt we graffitied over.
The main reason I enquire is, since the start of lockdown, I couldn't quite stomach listening to my hip-hop etc, I think it was all a bit doom & gloom for me at a time that I was feeling pretty low.  Maybe you felt the same.

And I felt the same about a lot of my rock stuff - most lyrics in rock seem too 'feeling' and retrospect/sad.
So have been on an acid techno, house, dance & jungle tip since the lockdown started.

Although - saying that, I picked the old ipod classic up the other day and listened to some Ice-t,public enemyand tim dog, krs and the rest of it, and it felt fresher than ever, and put me in a 'fuck the establishment' mood with new vigour.

Back on it yet matey?   (if u like it)

As a kid I was mainly into British rock like Oasis, Blur and The Beatles. Kind of went off Oasis once I started waking up because of them drinking champagne with Tony Blair. Seems to be a lot of dodgy conspiracy stuff with The Beatles so I went off them too.

 

As a teenager and through most of my twenties I was heavily into hip hop, and I did print design like mixtape covers and flyers for a lot of rappers and DJs. I distanced myself from a lot of it though because of how negative it often is. I don't mind some of the more conscious rap though.

 

I mostly stay away from pop culture these days, at least mainstream stuff. The stuff I listen to now is mostly just soundtracks and instrumentals without lyrics, although it's partly just because I just like some chilled out background music while I'm doing other stuff. I still have the odd days where I bump the odd bit of Wu-Tang Clan, DMX or Tupac or something when I'm in a mood.

 

Edit: I went through a bit of a drum and bass phase as a teen too, although it didn't really last long to be fair as it's a bit too repetitive for my taste.

Still won't forget my roots as a working class kid that grew up in council estates.

 

 

I just wish some of my role models would remember their roots too instead of jumping on whatever agenda the elites are currently pushing. Oasis is a bit of a love or hate band, but I had some great memories listening to them when I would go and stay at my uncle's house up in Manchester as a kid.

Nice one.  Yep, I see what you're saying about Oasis, can't deny they're a brilliant band musically, but it seems even working class lads seem to unavoidably (it seems) to sell out - big time.
For me, it was alway the Charlatans I loved most  (IMO).
I felt the same about Oasis as you - they sold out very early on  - and to an even larger extent - those fuckers U2.

Great sounding band - but big time establishment sellout fucks.  (I star/rate everyhting on my ipod in order of how much I like it(1-5) and U2 songs have all been demoted to just 1 star rating now.  Can't quite do the same to Oasis and Blur though - even though they both sold out somewhat.

Yep, hear what you say and agree entirely about hip-hop, alot of it is childish,arrogant and ego driven, but there's some truly awake hip-hop out there too.

No likes, but I'm diggin' them. Not heard that first track before, but the second is a classic


Nice one enigmatic - yeah - satanic reverses was released in 1992, underated band, had some success with television the drug of the nation, but they were a fairly early on hip hop band getting the truth out there along with public enemy and others.

(out of likes too)
