I’m too excited to write a blahg post. It’s Tuesday afternoon as I write this and in a few hours I’ll be seeing She Wants Revenge at Jannus Landing here in Saint Pete. hOOOO! If you think they sound too monotone, save it for someone who cares. 😛 As someone who grew up listening to bands like Bauhaus, Joy Division, New Order, etc. they feel like revisiting an old place and discovering new things about it to love.
I’m also a huge sucker for excellent lyrics and they are descriptive metaphorical allegorical gods in my book. Smelling like 2 am, tasting like a tear…love that stuff. Here are a few of my favorite lines from Sister:
“Her every word was in italics / As it would fall from her lips / The walls were made of broken promises / He hoped this wouldn’t be his”
Of course, Tear me Apart taps into something we’ve all experienced in the ‘hooking up’ process at one point or another. The electric pull towards someone, the dance, the moments of trying to convince yourself it’s nothing but not being able to resist the unexplainable force of lust, love, passion and the desire being so strong you want to tear into them. Yum! That is one sexy song! This She Wants Revenge Tear You Apart promo video is really cool too. It’s like a short silent film.
Anyway, I’m in the happy, crazy pre-show moments and can’t think of anything else to talk about. Enjoy the comic and if you want to check out She Wants Revenge you can listen and watch videos here or their myspace or on youtube.
