Operator operator My handler is manhandling me Stopping Bob Starts with Jane The solution to the situation in Bob Lies in part in Jane Operator operator operator Operator operator Just dropped the kids off In the desert With a helmet and a phrase-book Foreign relationship status: Frisky Striking Bob Starts with Jane Striking Bob won't end the Bobness in Bob But might prevent the eruption of Janeness in Jane

Daddy's building rockets And I'm playing tennis for you An envelope on Friday A clusterfuck on Saturday A spy in my body My heart in an acid bath in Guantánamo Bay Frisk me Cause I'm frisky And I got a flight to catch If I pack enough metal Will it get me a grope? In this economic climate I think we were made for each other Daddy's wreaking havoc And I'm rocking first class for you Lick my algorithm From black-site party To off-shore orgy to coup Frisk me Cause I'm frisky And I got a flight to catch I like long walks on the breach My hard-drive packed with meat Give me VIP From that side of beef On security In the dog-and-glove zone The suit maketh the clone Do I give him the tongue Or the Tomahawk Or both? I'm just waiting for some sweetheart contract And a tall, dark and handsome task-force Someone to arsehole a third-world nation with If it's not deniable, we can always outsource If I said I wanted your precious bodily fluids Would you understand my foreign policy is a teabag I only got eight arms to love you It be cosy and secure Just you And me And the NSA And they can see your cock

Some girls are weirder than other girls Some want to seek the life-essence Some want to bomb Iraq with you inside Do you recognise my voice? This is not an exercise Close your eyes, I'll be there before you can say Coalition I'm keen on a coalition too A thought-through policy How'd you come up with that one? Why'd you think I'm calling? Just to say hello? Let me warm up those frozen assets Slip into something less diplomatic Cue violins, white phosphorous We're not going soft on it Public opinion is public opinion But look at me getting sweaty Talking to my handler's man I will be with you, whatever Civilian casualties in pencil and The newscaster dressed in red You give war crimes a bad name Here's an IOU for a good time I got the fundraisers The number-crunchers Now feed me Now feed me Just barrel that baby in I will be with you, whatever And you can take that to the fucking bank

Little miss Little miss Wide for war A stay-at-home bomb Did you waterboard the plants again? Did you rectal feed the dog? Did you have a veil of blue? Or was it violet Or cobalt Or green Or grey Or possibly black? Little miss Little miss Wide for war A stay-at-home bomb We dedicate We dedicate We dedicate Our fellow bipeds Our fellow bipeds Our fellow bipeds Died laughing Died laughing Died laughing Tributes have been paid Tributes have been paid Tributes have been paid A round of applause A round of applause A round of applause Canter for coinage The Fortune 500 Vote with their gall And call it milk Boom! That’s what time it was Do keep up Let’s arm the rebels instead Be thou jocund! Here’s the smell of the blood still: All the perfume of Arabia Will not sweeten this little land of Whisky Sexy Democracy Whisky Sexy Democracy Whisky Sexy Democracy

about

Fierce satire of security/surveillance/war-profiteering culture, employing a propulsive and stuttering interruption-as-flow musical language: brutalist treatments of beautiful modernist chords shot through with the stubborn authenticity of percussive reduced-note melodies and punctuated by judicious silences to concentrate the sonic mass further. A chopstick in the eye of the sanctity of the quote-unquote war on terror, also "a literal blast," according to the sterling folk at A Jazz Noise. Maximum listening pleasure at high volume with sound source as far removed from computer screen as possible. DL includes handsome af music video for Rich Kids of Raytheon.
