about

Whole Sky Monitor Leeds, UK

The chief export of Leeds’ Whole Sky Monitor is sonic shock and awe. Their sophomore effort, Twisted Little Piggies, is a discordant, vaguely political, overtly misanthropic body of hyper-energetic and possibly upsetting rock and roll blasts that smokes and sweats bullets. Actually, BBC1’s Steve Lamacq phrased it as “huge, hulking anti-pop.” Twisted Little Piggies will be your go-to soundtrack. ... more

Cinenema

We are good dog, we are prayerful
Welcome to the garden 2 by 2
We are sinful, we are faithless
Take apart the future screw by screw

Welcome to – the faithful zoo
Welcome to – war / death / god

Stick thin, a skinny girl
A sick sin, a ring of pearls
Kiss your temple, feed your worm
Feel the pull of monkey world

Welcome to – the faithless zoo
Welcome to – war / death / god

Sticks, stones, home from home
Break my legs bone by bone

Paper bone, scissors, stone
Rock beats skin, home alone

Big scream sin enema
Wide scene sin enema
Ice-cream sin enema
Sin, sin, sin enema
Sin, sin, sin enema

Respectful one, can you help me with my problem?
Mother died when I was five, my father took me special

Ivory Coast

Mary Moses

Uncle lied and father died a victim of his poison
Money made in cocoa trade, now worth 12 million dollars

Give me all your money, give me all your money, give me all your
Give me all your money, give me all your money, give me all your
Give me all your money, give me all your money, give me all your

How much can I give you, to help me as your daughter?
What I need to feed the greed is details for bank transfer

Ivory Coast

Give me all your money, give me all your money, give me all your
Give me all your money, give me all your money, give me all your
Give me all your money, give me all your money, give me all your

Harehills Chapeltown

Gone bad, tooth fairy gone bad
Steel band, an all-white steel band
Now entering Harehills Chapeltown, rules of the road no longer apply
Now entering vice ring day care, sail the red light say goodbye

Hip hop, GCSE hip hop
Trance state, database trance state
Now featuring stay cool calm down, see saw slide down police in the crowd
The duck head terror gang a cancelled tram line, call in the Council, send in the clowns

Downpression
You can’t get back home

Now entering Harehills Chapeltown, rules of the road no longer apply
A bush meat workshop a crack in the Dutch pot, 2 girls in the bush for £25
That’s all

Sufferation
You can’t get back home

Now circling Hell
Now circling Hell
Now circling Hell

Track Name: Three Cheers for the Weirdo
Three Cheers for the Weirdo

I was up all night
When I should’ve been down
I was in your face
I stole your crown

I am the King of Africa!

Go man go, 3 cheers for the weirdo
I take my love and I take the pain
Go man go, tear down the weirdo
What do you do when they celebrate hate?

They want to throw me back
‘Cos I should’ve made sense
Off the radar screen
A fish fall offence

This is not a flock of birds!

Go man go, 3 cheers for the weirdo
I take my love and I take the pain
Blow by blow, three cheers for the weirdo
What do you know? I’m a toad in a hole

Easy, easy, easy, easy

I came to you unclean
I came to you obscene

The dog ate my soul…

Easy, easy, easy, easy
Track Name: Just Let Me Talk to Her
Just Let Me Talk To Her

She’d be on my side
If she had not died
And every girl from all the world could see
The good side of me

Sometimes I get tired (just let me talk to her)
New born in disguise (just let me talk to her)
And every girl from all the world could see
I’m alright when you get to know me

Through every scene and every scream
I hide inside my voice (just let me talk to her)
I told her once, I told her twice
She left me with no choice (just let me talk to her)

And nothing goes the way I want
Never think of me
Confuse me with their clever words
Say I just make it worse

Just let me talk to her
Just let me talk to her
Just let me talk to her
Track Name: Sick Sick Sick
Sick Sick Sick

For reasons of security
We’ve got to lie, you’ve got to believe
For reasons that will always be
You’ve got to pay, you’ve got to bleed

Hawks and doves and gays and straights
Flying guerrillas at the Empire State
From Northern Poland and dark Rumania
Saving democracy with war and torture

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, sell me weapons to keep me alive
MI 5, 6, 7, all politicians go to heaven

Detox, Botox cut price deals
Some kind of living in the retail world
A paragon of virtue, defender of capital
Addicted to shopping and the size 8 girls

IKEA riot scene
Swedish meatballs painted green
Outlet retail village scream
Low emission magazines

Race hate, makes round 8, peace and love gonna have to wait
8, 9,10,11,12, we all work for the national health
The CIA is great; keep us safe from a Muslim state
13,14,15,16, round ‘em up, lock ‘em up and keep ‘em virgins


Sick, sick, we get sick, we go shopping and we’re all thick
Shit, shit, it tastes like shit, burn it down yeah phone in sick
War, war, vote for war, No-one likes international law
Buy buy walk on by, screw the world yeah buy buy buy
Track Name: Way Over Fourteen
Way Over Fourteen


The farm’s now private and there’s not much here
The wind here is bad for your skin
I’ve been west and I can help
I can lend you money for the papers

Short hours working as a top masseuse
Time off to send money home
Stroll on down to the summer fayre
If you’re not having tea with the Queen

Hey now baby hey now man it’s a whole new world it’s a whole new land
You’re here to stay, you’ll be OK, but there’s interest charges and the man to pay

Tenderise those panda eyes
And darkness is bad for the skin
A supervised trip on the 49
For hygiene products and pills

Hey now man you’ve got to understand, the market economy stalks your land
She’s got yellow hair to pay her fare, unhurried sessions in her underwear

Need a friend or God to get away a friend or God to get away…

A chambermaid’s smile, a waitress’s legs
A prostitute’s veins and a dead dyed head
And a row over money with the Muslim men
A bullet in the window from a passing van

Hey now baby you’ve got to make it real, ‘cause punters pay for foot high heels
Long nights turn into 24, pay off a little and owe much more

Hey now man I don’t bother to fret, she’s way over 14 and way in debt
I’ve no time for bullshit talk, do-gooders, bleeding wrists or bleeding hearts

Need a friend or God to get away a friend or God to get away…
Track Name: Siddall
Siddall

You’re still here
White as summer
Dark as green and pale as red and slip away

I don’t know you
But I could find you
On the Piccadilly, millinery way

Ophelia, the ghost of you
The coldness of sweet water
Wasting and darkness
The light of Rosetti’s bonfire

You are my lover
And my summer
Lizzie Siddall and a holy thing to me

Ophelia, the ghost of you
The coldness of sweet water
Wasting and darkness
The light of Rosetti’s bonfire

PRB
Millais’ dream
Laudanum’s queen
Miss Sid and me
Track Name: Bland Bland Bland
Bland Bland Bland

And I never could do what you wanted if I never told you that before
The boys here they love humiliation from Cas Vegas down to Ponte Carlo
Everybody’s got Pro-Tools in their bedrooms
And the venue comes wrapped in a box
No-one likes us but we don’t care about that
And the temperature of martyrs is hot

Sing that song when I tell you to
Read my mind and I’ll love you too

Bland bland bland, I’m sinking in shit slick sand
I’m sinking in 1980’s nostalgia babies
Bland bland bland I’m drowning in sponsored brand
With my guaranteed fan base of two

Taste the glamour you’ll guaranteed get hammered
Or a fuck in Donny Saturday nights
Hull Hell and Halifax coaches down to London
And I’ve got space so please be my friend

So sing their song when they tell you to
Read their minds and they’ll love you too

Bland bland bland, I’m sinking in shit slick sand
I’m sinking in comeback babies, radio friendly
Bland bland bland I’m drowning in sponsored brand
With a guaranteed fan base of two

And a guaranteed fan base of two

Guaranteed fanbase fanbase fanbase fanbase of 2

Underneath the mirror ball
The devil in the detail laughs at me
Painted on a photograph
The castles made of sand they all agree

That you can pay for, you can pay for me

Internal Critics 4
Entertainment keeping score
Internal critics 4
You’re not singing anymore

Golden boys and silver rain
Wrap it all in cellophane for me
Ride a silver limousine
A carriage and black horses stop for me

In my opinion, my opinion’s free

I’m not singing anymore

N.O.


Right here, you think I’m right here
But I went long ago
I left you, man how I left you
You never saw me go

When I leave you, when I go
When I hurt you, you don’t even know

Now I’ve left you, now I’ve gone
See my shadow, see that nothing’s wrong

I fake it, man how I fake it
“I could never let you go”
In my heaven I sleep with the devil
In my hovel I sleep with you

When I leave you, when I go
When I hurt you, you don’t even know

Now I’ve left you, now I’ve gone
See my shadow, see that nothing’s wrong

Hear the silence, see the space
Feel my love, yeah nothing out of place
Track Name: Venus Not Venus
Venus Not Venus


The angel’s been eaten, the Gods have been beaten
Give me speed and therapy’
The madness of strangers, parents and neighbours
Hey, anyone can be pretty

(I lost it)
And like a song yeah she is gone
Hum your tune but not for long
Take her away from me

Fuck and forget ‘em, who believes this lesson
When love bites this hard?
Let me be tragic, let me be hurt bad
Hey everyone, bleed!

(I lost it)
And like a song yeah she is gone
Hum your tune but not for long
Take her away from me

Wear her sunny smile!

(I lost it)
I’m a fly with just one wing
I can do most anything
I can fly and I can sing
So long as its round and round

Wear her sunny smile!
