Just between you and me, we caught this by sheer accident finding it popping up on the sound player cued up as the track following the cut we were meant to be adoring and swooning to (which incidentally we did and were).this tasty slab of scuzzed out bubblegum pop (‘mess’) comes culled from a 100 only wax EP put out by the Barcelona based discos de kurlian imprint and is by the Prams who from what we can make out, may or may not feature Matthew and Victoria variously of secret beach and franny and zooey fame. Anyhow enough of that and back to the sounds, this babe hits all the buttons at once, quite frantically in fact all said, a kind of surf streaked fuzzy art bomb rippled and shimmied in 60’s femme harmonies and drilled with an impishly attractive lo-fi crookedness that had us here thinking it be the dot joining missing jigsaw piece between the Shaggs and Helen Love.

Track Name: Voucher
I got my secrets when I walk to work
I got my secrets when I leave work
I got my token fumbling 'round in my palm

I got my token to get on the bus
I got my token when i'm non-plussed
I got my token when I feel robust
but it's not my voucher...

but it's not my voucher...
Track Name: Mess
You said you'll call and you'll let me know
about the shitty weather in New York City
You said you'd write, you'd always lie
and my post office is on fire where I am
It's just a mess (x2)

It's such a mess the way we met each other
I was having such a hard time not to seem smug
This is such a mess, it's such a mess
I knew I shouldn't have bothered
and I've got no TV shows left to watch
I'm all alone, this is such a mess.

Track Name: The Girl With The X-Ray Eyes
No no no no!
I don’t want her to see me
afraid she might agree and frown

And I don’t know
why she always wears spex
but I’m under her hex
and I might drown

Could this be true? (could she be true?)
Could this be real? (could she be real?)
Tell me Poly please say
If this is true (that this is true)
that you are so real (i feel you here)
Poly tell me today

Marianne, Poly I’m just a baby
We’re germfree, Poly don’t say it’s maybe!
and i can feel your x-ray eyes
through me now
Listerine, i’m a conscious consumer
sterile, clean, i don’t see the humor
in gabardine stitches, adolescence underground

(x2)

identity stitches, adolescence underground

Track Name: I Wanna Be Unemployed
And what's the matter with freelance?
mostly just wait around all day
I’m such a victim of circumstance
and it makes me sick to beg for pay

ya ya ya ya ya I wanna be unemployed
and oh oh oh oh oh it would make us so fucking overjoyed
to never work again and just listen to Heavenly records with all my pop friends
ya ya ya ya ya I wanna be unemployed

Well, can't you see that I'm in need?
I can't wait six months to get my check
don't want to beg but pretty please?
can't you see that i'm sensitive?

ya ya ya ya ya I wanna be unemployed
and oh oh oh oh oh it would make us so fucking overjoyed
to never work again and just listen to Fat Tulip records with all our pop friends
and Strawberry Story with all our pop friends
and bop to Talulah Gosh with all our pop friends
ya ya ya ya i wanna be unemployed (x6)

I'm annoyed!
