KMA2568 Crabbuckit Ahead By A Century

Here’s a place-holder post because we saw Slayer last night and I am still in Taranna today, probably record shopping and eating good food (and most definitely recuperating). It’s a tough life…

So I was driving along with the kids in the car, playing an MP3 CD I’d made, one song per artist, so 700mb at 4mb per song is about 175 songs on the disc… anyway, it’s just to introduce them to a bunch of new stuff, see what they like and what they don’t. On came K-OS’ Crabbuckit (which they knew from some other car disc anyway), it’s a great song with a Hit The Road Jack Ray Charles bass line, with lyrics about positivity and moving forward.

I’d forgotten the wee bit in the middle breakdown where he mentions the Tragically Hip. And (probably) Leonard Cohen. The Hip song he references is a great one about life and possibility and curiosity, so his own chorus of “No time to get down ‘cos I’m moving up” fits perfectly.

Here’s the lyrics of the section (at 2:16 in the video below)…

It’s a conniption fit when the microphones lit
I take it higher like a bird on a wire, retire the fire
I’ll never ’cause I’m just moving on up
Choosin’ to touch, the unseen, craving the clutch
The most inevitable, legible pyromania
Slaying the devil, and send him back to Transylvania
Strangely enough, I avoid that side of the ghetto
From my heavy metal, will settle the puppets like Geppetto
Damn, if mirrors were created by sand
Then I’m looking in the water for reflections of man
Understand the minds above time when it’s empty
Emcee, Tragically Hip, ahead by a century (rrrah)

  1. What’s the rest of that K-os guy sound like? (you can save my lazy ass some trouble and I trust you ) I love the sax break and the whole tune.
