    Lyrics:

    When I'm out walkin', I strut my stuff -- yeah, I'm so strung out
    I'm high as a kite; I just might stop to check you out

  • VIOLENT FEMMES-Blister in the Sun

    2:27

    The Violent Femmes were founded by Brian Ritchie (bassist), and Victor DeLorenzo (percussionist) as a rhythm section, and became a full-fledged band upon the arrival of Gordon Gano (singer/guitarist). In its early days, the band frequently played coffee houses and street corners. They were discovered (and subsequently forgotten) by James Honeyman-Scott (of The Pretenders) August 23, 1981 when the band was busking on a street corner in front of the Oriental Theatre, the Milwaukee venue that The Pretenders would be playing later that night. Chrissie Hynde invited them to play a brief acoustic set after the opening act.[1] The band signed to Slash Records and released a self-titled album that they had recorded in July 1982. The music was an innovative combination of American folk music and indie rock, and commonly referred to as folk-punk.

    Available for the first time ever in any format, this film features extremely rare archive footage of cult legends The Violent Femmes

    Formed in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1980 singer/guitarist Gordon Gano, bassist Brian Ritchie and percussionist Victor DeLorenzo are quite rightly regarded as the Godfathers of Folk-Punk. One of the rare American cult bands to achieve mainstream success, they have amassed six Billboard chart albums and three top twenty hits. Their eponymous debut album remained an essential item for record collectors and eventually achieved platinum sales status.

    Despite splitting in the mid-eighties, The Violent Femmes remained ever popular, reforming in 1989 since when they have toured and recorded continually and have performed well over 2000 gigs to date. This film features two full shows of the band performing at Manchester, England's legendary Haienda Club in September 1983 and June 1984.

  • Violent Femmes - Add It Up

    4:44

    Released: April 1983 as track #4 on Violent Femmes
    Writer: Gordon Gano
    Genre: Alternative rock, folk punk
    Lyrics:

    Day after day, I will walk and I will play
    But the day after today, I will stop and I will start

    Why can't I get just one kiss?
    Why can't I get just one kiss?
    There may be some things that I wouldn't miss
    But I look at your pants and I need a kiss

    Why can't I get just one screw?
    Why can't I get just one screw?
    Believe me, I know what to do
    But something won't let me make love to you

    Why can't I get just one fuck?
    Why can't I get just one fuck?
    I guess it's got something to do with luck
    But I waited my whole life for just one...

    Day after day, I get angry and I will say
    That the day is in my sight
    When I'll take a bow and say goodnight

    Oh, ma-mama, mama-mo-ma-mum
    Have you kept your eye, your eye on your son?
    I know you've had problems, you're not the only one
    When your sugar left, he left you on the run

    Oh, ma-mama, mama-mo-ma-mum
    Take a look now at what your boy has done
    He's walking around like he's number one
    Went downtown and you got him a gun

    So don't shoot, shoot, shoot that thing at me
    Don't shoot, shoot, shoot that thing at me
    You know you've got my sympathy
    But don't shoot, shoot, shoot that thing at me

    So don't shoot, shoot, shoot that thing at me
    Don't shoot, shoot, shoot that thing at me
    You know you've got my sympathy
    But don't shoot, shoot, shoot that thing at me

    Broken down kitchen at the top of the stairs
    Can I mix in with your affairs?
    Share a smoke, make a joke
    Grasp and reach for a leg of hope

    Words to memorize, words hypnotize
    Words make my mouth exercise
    Words all failed the magic prize
    Nothing I can say when I'm in your thighs

    Oh, ma-mama, mo-ma, mo-ma mother
    I would love to love you, lover
    City is restless, it's ready to pounce
    Here in your bedroom, ounce for ounce

    Oh, ma-mama, mo-ma, mo-ma mother
    I would love to love you, lover
    City is restless, it's ready to pounce
    Here in your bedroom, ounce for ounce

    I've given you a decision to make
    Things to lose, things to take
    Just as she's about ready to cut it up
    She says, Wait a minute, honey, I'm gonna add it up!
    Add it up! Add it up! Add it up!

    Day after day, I get angry and I will say
    That the day is in my sight
    When I'll take a bow and say goodnight

  • Good Feeling - Violent Femmes

    3:53

    The song Good Feeling by the Violent Femmes off of their self-titled album.

    Lyrics:

    Good feeling
    won't you stay with me just a little longer
    it always seems like you're leaving
    when I need you here just a little longer
    Oh dear lady, there's so many things
    that I have come to fear
    Little voice says I'm going crazy
    to see all my worlds disappear
    Vague sketch of a fantasy
    laughing at the sunrise
    like he's been up all night
    ooo slippin and slidin'
    What a good time but now
    have have to find a bed
    that can take this wait

    good feeing
    won't you say stay with me just a little longer
    It always seems like you're leaving
    when I know the other one
    just a little too well
    Oh dear lady
    won't you stay with me just a little longer
    Y'know it always seems like your leaving
    when I need you here just a little longer
    la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la

    The Jewish Monkeys are masters of identity play, knights of the absurd, musicians and comedians, who deliver an exhilarating show. They love breaking ethnic and religious taboos, combined with liberating salvos of satire. Their neo-Yiddish sound fusion swings between cirque-like chanson and energetically punk-driven pop, while the language alternates between English and Yiddish. They rarely fail to get people on their feet, dancing: from Syrian refugees in a Dresden transit camp to anti-Pegida protesters the next day. Or from culturally savvy music lovers in German, Czech or French clubs and concert halls, as well as to to hipsters in London or Tel Aviv. And now they’re touring with their latest album.

    just the kind of girl that I'd like to meet
    it ain't her hair, her clothes, her feet
    somethin' much more discreet
    now I ain't loud baby I ain't proud

    do a world of good for my mental health

    Lyrics:

    I need someone, a person to talk to
    Someone who'd care to love
    Could it be you?
    Could it be you?

    The situation gets rough, and I start to panic
    It's not enough, it's just a habit
    And, kid, you're sick
    Well, darling, this is it

    Well, you can all just kiss off into the air
    Behind my back, I can see them stare
    They'll hurt me bad, but I won't mind
    They'll hurt me bad, they do it all the time (yeah, yeah!)
    Yeah, they do it all the time (yeah, yeah!)
    They do it all the time (do it all the time!)
    They do it all the time (do it all the time!)
    They do it all the time, do it all the time

    I hope you know that this will go down on your permanent record!
    Oh, yeah? Well, don't get so distressed
    Did I happen to mention that I'm impressed?

    I take one, one, one 'cause you left me
    And two, two, two for my family
    And three, three, three for my heartache
    And four, four, four for my headaches
    And five, five, five for my lonely
    And six, six, six for my sorrow
    And seven, seven for no tomorrow
    And eight, eight, I forget what eight was for
    But nine, nine, nine for the lost gods
    Ten, ten, ten, ten for everything, everything, everything

    Well, you can all just kiss off into the air
    Behind my back, I can see them stare
    They'll hurt me bad, but I won't mind
    They'll hurt me bad, they do it all the time (yeah, yeah!)
    Yeah, they do it all the time (yeah, yeah!)
    They do it all the time (do it all the time!)
    They do it all the time (do it all the time!)

    When I'm a walking, I strut my stuff, then I'm so strung out
    I'm high as a kite, I just might, stop to check you out

    Let me go on, like a blister in the sun
    Let me go on, big hands I know you're the one

    Body and beats, I stain my sheets, I don't even know why
    My girl friend, she's at the end, she is starting to cry

    Let me go on, like a blister in the sun
    Let me go on, big hands I know you're the one

    Whisper:
    When I'm a walking, I strut my stuff, then I'm so strung out
    I'm high as a kite, I just might, stop to check you out
    When I'm a walking, I strut my stuff, then I'm so strung out
