Reptile Style

Every now and then you stumble across a song that just hits at home. Reigning Sound’s Reptile Style is one of those tunes.

The lyrics is man meets woman, woman let man down. And he sings out his pain.

The singer, Greg Cartwright, sounds just about as tormented as the lyrics. While the band laying down a solid as fuck foundation for him to wail upon

The result is just beautiful. Real pain encaosulated in a song. Reigning Sound’s Reptile Style is one of the best songs you never heard in your life.

“You said that love was the one thing that you couldn’t give me right now
And then touched my hand and your sequin dress rolled off your back like a snake skin
There’s two of us in here but only one of us is having any fun
And the damage is done
And you shield my eyes while you suck me dry like a rattle snake does
Reptile style
You brought me poison apples on a silver tray
Reptile style
Well you broke my heart and you slit it away

You said finding good help is hard
Then you handed me a business card
That said all good things must pass
And the adress just said in the grass
Then you slid you hand into my shirt
Said carefull you might get hurt
When the whole clouds turn to green with envy
As you sank your teeth right in me

Reptile style
You brought me poison apples on a silver tray
Reptile style
Well you broke my heart and you slit it away

You said that love was the one thing that you couldn’t give me right now
And then touched my hand and your sequin dress rolled off your back like a snake skin
There’s two of us in here but only one of us is having any fun
And the damage is done
And you shield my eyes while you suck me dry like a snake does
Reptile style
You brought me poison apples on a silver tray
Reptile style
Well you broke my heart and you slit it away
You slit it away
And you slit it away
Slit it away

A case of “The best band you never heard in your life”?

Mistreater is one of those bands you never heard of and when you do, you think “how come these guys never made it onto the big stage?”. This sounds as “if Black Sabbath had been born and bred in an Ohio mobile home and raised on a steady diet of smoke and acid”.

The album is available on vinyl from On the Dole Records. Check it out on Bandcamp.

The “Viking”

Behold the “Viking”. Its a calorie filled monstrosity, but man, it is good! The Viking is basically a Calzone with the topped sliced off and filled with a kebab.

Best food item since sliced bread. And yeah, if you want a really good pizza – go to Sweden, preferably DG’s Pizza in Jakan.

Celibate Rifles

Listening to Celibate Rifles debut album, Sideroxlyn. Even though it was recorded on a show string budget, you still can hear the nerve in the music. I also like that they throw in a saxophone here and there for good measures. The singer, Damien Lovelock, died unfortunately a few years ago from cancer..
