This song has been in my head all day, but that’s ok.
we’ll wake up your mothers, we’ll start a commotion
we’ll take you apart, yeah we’ll swallow your ocean
It means nothing. Isn’t it great?
I adore Tilly and the Wall’s first album, The Bottoms of Barrels. It’s got a naively sleazy vibe to it, and it’s shouty and celebratory and fun, and anyway any song which uses tap dancing instead of drums is pretty well guaranteed to win my heart. Unless it’s shit.
This video is cheap and dopey but, you know, it’s got people dancing and being happy so I like it.
Here they are on Sesame Street. A good attempt at an A to Z but they stop at D, the slackers.
