Ray Gunn Radio

I have a sign that says stay away
Look at that sign about every day
And out of all the things I own,
I want my ray gun, radar, and my radio
Oh Ray Gunn just look what you’ve done
Mimi and I were just tryin’ to have some fun
I tried to call you on the telephone
I my ray gun, radar, cos I’m all alone
Oh oh oh, take a look at my eyes
Oh oh oh, take a look at my eyes
Oh oh oh, take a look at my eyes
And I think you’ll see there’s something wrong with…
Why do you love me when I twist and shout?
I’ll let my weapons show you what I’m all about
I wear the truth on the souls of my shoes
I want my ray gun, radar, but I’ve got the blues
I hate everyone I see
I don’t know what’s wrong with me
My eyes turn red from every thing that I do
I want my ray gun, radar, but I can’t stand you…
Oh oh oh, take a look at my eyes
Oh oh oh, take a look at my eyes
Oh oh oh, take a look at my eyes
And I think you’ll see there’s something wrong with me!
I want my ray gun, radar, and my radio
I want my ray gun, radar, and my radio
I want my ray gun, radar, and my radio
And out of all the things I own
And out of all the things I own
And out of all the things I own
I want my ray gun, radar, and my radio
I want my ray gun, radar, and my radio
I want my ray gun, radar, and my radio
And out of all the things I own
And out of all the things I own
And out of all the things I own
I’ve got you babe.

me and my girl

this came up onto my radar today. from said the gramophone one of the *sweetest* things ever, nice. posted in full cos its better:

Merci The Franks Merci

The Franks – “Health Sciences”

Me and my girl, we get along. We go to the supermarket and I go inside and get 5-minute pancake mix and she gets old produce out of the dumpster. We go driving and I read the map while she holds the solar panel. We play music and she plays the high notes and I play the low ones. We go dancing and she goes nuts and I sit on the stool in a pair of shitty sunglasses. We ride bikes and she scrapes a stick with one hand and I sing the anthem. We take a shower and she does all the hair and I do all the skin. We watch a movie and she does the lines while I strike the poses. Me and my girl, we get along.

The Franks – “Cough it Up”

My girl and me, we get along. She treats me right. She yells at me and calls me dumb and steals my money and uses my dishes and wears my clothes and loses my keys, but still I know she treats me right. ‘Cause when she holds my hand, she does this thing. She slides her palm down the inside of my arm, and her fingers slide along the inside of my hand and calls my fingers to hers like magnets. Our fingers match up like a mirror, you know, or like on a window when someone’s in prison, and then -click- they slide over one notch, you know? They click over and our fingers interlock and she wraps her fingers hard around my hand and squeezes our palms together and presses my hand against her jeans. It’s like, her hand can’t lie. You can’t fake that interlocking thing.

[Buy the *marvelous* Duh]

also: M.I.A. has a new video, combining her consummate artistry with the startling talent of Romain-Gavras
