about

(NB The track 'Lucy Leave' is omitted from this online version)

Not your usual brand of post-punk Pigfuckers, Pink Stainless Tail have style. Troughs of it. Simom Strong is a diva-.throwing jagged verbal hatchets. at soft targets. His uncanny resemblance to Everett Sloan in Lady from Shanghai (sans gammy leg and Rita Hayworth) could freak out Sloan's nieces in the off chance they dropped in on a PST performance at a punk club even though I know this is about as likely as me joining Simon on stage with a piccolo. But Simon truly is sick. He would probably enjoy a book that was written without I's, h's, es, i's and k's. He needs to be reckoned with. Meanwhile the example Harry Howard sets every time he straps on a guitar in front of a crowd is a special one. Combine his stately appearance with his scratchy guitar and the way it expels velvet-adorned riffs and he is good on both the eye and the ear. The drummer wears awesome hats. I enjoy the bass solo that transpires after Simon yells `Step on it, Nate!' on Map. Ref 50 50N 0 10W and how Nate follows these orders by mashing his guitar with his foot.

The death-defying Time Will Come will encourage you to trap the band in an alleyway and hypnotise them with finger cymbals and hot steaks. The words and music on 5-6-7 is, like the best song Chris Knox never wrote forThe Fall. I am unsure if the first words to Greystoked! are "Me Tamazepam, Huge joint" but they really deserve to be: EIsewhere in the song I identify the sound of a kookaburra, a grey digger squirrel, two monkeys smuggling frankfurters, a cacophony of mating pigs and the depressing sound of a guy pretending to burp his pants. In a normal business climate, it would-be single of the year. otherwise this sozzled ditty documents what could only be the most revolting party in the history of mankind.

I leave you with these lyrics from a song that is not Greystoked:"All the houses you inhabit I and the gardens that you tend / Cannot convince me other than I the dark is my best friend. Beware the groynes you cannot see / When the tide comes up the beach /The sea will take out your old shit / And bring new shit within reach". Pure poetry. I just -listed several reasons why y'o'u should join Pink Stainless Tail in the park naked. Now you - tell me you do it because you like the flowers. Keep in mind a grieving dog (uncredited) probably starved to make this record.

Track Name: Map Ref. 50 50N 0 10W (King Edward Memorial Song)
I lay beneath an angel
on the midnight esplanade
One hand held out a laurel wreath,
the other a grenade
Before me lay the Channel,
beyond me lay the town
On my right was Brighton,
left was Hove, and I was upside-down.

I felt like a cornetto,
or at least a 99
But the beachfront shop shut hours ago
before the dusk resigned
A rollerblader threw my stroke
speeding by behind
I noticed all the waving foam,
and then I changed my mind

All the houses you inhabit
and the gardens that you tend,
Cannot convince me other than
the dark is my best friend.
Beware the groynes you cannot see
When the tide comes up the beach
The sea will take out your old shit
And bring new shit within reach
Track Name: [{Now (That)} You've] Gone
I been feeling oh so high, think I'll have another slice of pie
Hanging out feeling groovy, last night I went to see a French movie
Now that you've gone gone, now that you've gone gone gone
I'm feeling... I'm feeling fine all of the time

Yup I'm feeling really swell, all my friends say that I'm dressing well
If you thought that I'd be going under, they all say I'm looking so much younger
Now that you've gone gone, now that you've gone gone gone
I'm feeling... I'm feeling fine all of the time

I been feeling oh so fine, think I'll have another glass of wine
In a little while I'll phone for a curry, go down the Dragon later, there's no hurry
Now that you've gone gone, now that you've gone gone gone
I'm feeling... I'm feeling fine all of the time

Guess I never told you how much you shit me,
But I never even saw the bus when it hit me
And what was the last thing that went through my head
Well, it was the bus just like I just said, and
Now that I'm gone gone, now that I'm gone gone gone
I'm feeling... I'm feeling fine all of the time
Track Name: (Studio) 5-6-7
And it never bothered me much at first
Coz in those days I was much more concerned
With my hi-score, and whatever that meant
And all those 10ps that I spent
Yeah, my reflexes were second to none
But as time went by, my wrist got numb

But still I started to go there more and more
And I started to notice the posters they put up next door
There were actresses in varying states of deshabille
There was an audience in varying states of dishevelled
Then this one time some pissed up bloke
Came out of the fire door to throw up
And he just fucked off and he left open
So I wandered in and it was a pornutopia
It was the Studio 567 - alright!


Well, they say that it's darkest before the dawn
But before, during, and after the hardcore porn
It's always dark in a XXX theatre
Well, you can work it out while you're sitting there
I'd never dremes there was so much filth
And the lengths that some people go to just to sneak into a film

So from then on my interest increased
And it culminated during a showing of Walerian Borowczyk's opus, The Beast
Now curruption and depravity are my middle name
(although to the uninititiated eye they probably both look the same)
From the satin sheets of a French chateau
To a handkerchief in a steelworker's moleskins
It's easy to look at, but it's hard to turn away
And if even if you'd only ever been there once,
there's a part of you that will always and forever stay
in the Studio 567, oh yeah!
Track Name: Greystoked!
Ungawa!
