DEAD / Wicked City - Unpopularity Contest LP

12" LP out April 2017 via WeEmptyRooms

***

If the current political climate has taught us anything it’s that in the race to the bottom competition is fierce. DEAD and Wicked City have spent years touring together, sharing small spaces and often in heated debate over which band is the least popular.

As the older band one could argue that Wicked City have been unpopular the longest but conversely DEAD have eclipsed them as far as releases and sheer amount of shows. So there is an output to popularity ratio to be considered.

Come April the two bands will settle the debate once and for all. On “Unpopularity Contest” the bands take a side of vinyl each and give it their absolute best, to prove who is the absolute worst.

Wicked City have opted for the “Three deadest bangers’ approach – each track more than capable of radio play, providing final and conclusive proof that no-one will give them radio play. DEAD have delivered one long rumbler, unlikely to see any airwaves outside of the graveyard shifts, but it could backfire with a bit of cult status.

Vote with your feet people. BUY THE RECORD and decide.

Track Name: Idiotic Assembly (WC)
EYE FOR AN EYE AN IDIOTIC ASSEMBLY
YOU TAKE THE BUS MAN I'LL TAKE THE BENTLEY
40 A MONTH WITH 8 WEEKS TO PAY
A STRIP OF FLESH TO KEEP THE VULTURES AWAY
INSIPIENT KLEMPTOMANIC COMPULSION
YOU TOOK A STANCE NOW YOUR STANCE IS STAINED
BECOME THE SUBJECT OF YOUR OWN REVULSION
THE YEARS YOU STOLE WILL WASH AWAY IN THE RAIN
AND HAND TO MOUTH BECAME THE CRIME OF THE CENTURY
EYE FOR AN EYE AN IDIOTIC ASSEMBLY
WOULDN'T WANNA BE A WANDERER
STRAYED TOO FAR FROM HOME
CAUSE WE'RE PAROCHIAL AND TRAINED TO KILL
WOULDN'T WANNA BE A STRAIGHT TALKING HUMANIST WITH A PHD
WHOSE OWN PARTY FED HIM TO THE WOLVES
Track Name: Stitches (WC)
I CAN BE YOUR MIDDLE MAN
IF YOU MAKE ALL THE COPS SING OUT MY NAME
TREAT US THE SAME
SEEN YOU DOWN THE SERVO SNIFFING PAINT
CAST CIRCLES ANEW
KING UNTIL THE KINGDOMS EAT THEIR OWN
AND WHO'S TO BLAME?
STUMBLED INTO POWERS LEFT UNTAMED
GONNA BURN THIS CITY RIGHT INTO THE GROUND
HUDDLE THE WITCHES
RECLAIM THE HABITAT
AND PULL OUT ALL OF THE STITCHES
