you can't fake genuine pathos

calzino, Tuesday, 20 September 2022 22:59 (two weeks ago) link

it's an instant classic, just listened to it 5 times in a row and laughed at the same lines every time.

dj smile has nothing on these guys, they are spitting truly deep lyrics

calzino, Tuesday, 20 September 2022 23:10 (two weeks ago) link

what's the worth?
fuck the universe til it hurts
i'm not used to these kinds of mental health
issues
i just wanna live in a church
and find peace
upon me brain
jesus please just stop me pain
i know you think that this is a game
but it's not
now watch me walk away

pete & bas have been around for a minute

i like this better though the kind of gallows humor, terror sadness thing instead of just aping general rap shit talk, though pete & bas are fun

Blues Guitar Solo Heatmap (Free Download) (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Wednesday, 21 September 2022 14:27 (two weeks ago) link

so many things i love about this.

"when i go will my loved one's miss me? well the answer's no." the pause and the qualification, like he really thought about it. lmao

ꙮ (map), Wednesday, 21 September 2022 14:39 (two weeks ago) link

it's the perfect level of gallows humor + nihilist realism, plus they can spit a bit

the algo just alerted me that norman is about to drop a new track today

i feel like, I don't entirely get this, I did lol, but I don't have a dick so ...

sarahell, Wednesday, 21 September 2022 15:13 (two weeks ago) link

also, why didn't Kevin get a verse? He looked like he had some haunted thoughts

sarahell, Wednesday, 21 September 2022 15:18 (two weeks ago) link

otm

sleeve, Wednesday, 21 September 2022 15:21 (two weeks ago) link

Kevin is the Bez. Or maybe the Barry Mooncult.

Tim, Wednesday, 21 September 2022 15:25 (two weeks ago) link

i like Kevin's air of mystique, also the suggestion he might still be hanging on to his job

feudal vague (Noodle Vague), Wednesday, 21 September 2022 15:26 (two weeks ago) link

i'm not sure there's any subtext to "get", this is just men my age who i have drank in pubs with turned up to 10

and I'm not a man ... like, I can recognize the type, but there isn't the same sense of self-identification that seems to be going on ... maybe this is the no girls allowed thread lol

sarahell, Wednesday, 21 September 2022 15:33 (two weeks ago) link

like, trying to think of what a Northern Birds version would be ... sad old ladies ... we exist ... it would probably be like "we are going to go to the club and rage" and then for various reasons that get chronicled in the song, we end up staying home.

sarahell, Wednesday, 21 September 2022 15:35 (two weeks ago) link

I like the contrast between Norman's will to rage and Patrick's mordant self-abnegation.

does he really have cocaine for breakfast?

sarahell, Wednesday, 21 September 2022 15:46 (two weeks ago) link

A big bowl of it apparently

a man often referred to in the news media as the Duke of Saxony (tipsy mothra), Wednesday, 21 September 2022 15:47 (two weeks ago) link

so, he sleeps outside, but then his wife lets him in the house to have his big bowl of cocaine for brekkies?

sarahell, Thursday, 22 September 2022 18:44 (one week ago) link

this video is haunting me

sarahell, Thursday, 22 September 2022 18:44 (one week ago) link

They should put a donk on it.

Josh in Chicago, Thursday, 22 September 2022 18:58 (one week ago) link

he probably has a bowl of muesli with greek yoghurt and honey really lol. But I've seen people of that age who are heavily into drugs. Once when I was a sparkie and chasing out all the runs in this 50-something dad guy's bedroom (which makes an absolute racket and throws plaster dust everywhere) while he slept through it, with his crack-pipe next to the alarm clock.

calzino, Thursday, 22 September 2022 19:00 (one week ago) link

yeah i mean somehow i don't think this is strictly autobiographical, it's almost as if rappers play with fictional personas and the pleasure (or not) comes from hearing what they bring to them.

ꙮ (map), Thursday, 22 September 2022 19:12 (one week ago) link

fictional personas often still require internal consistency in order to be credible / pleasurable to appreciate

sarahell, Thursday, 22 September 2022 19:25 (one week ago) link

haha fuck this is amazing, but to sarahell's point I went through a mental list of people to send it to and crossed them all off. I do think it just works at the level of writing & timing though

rob, Thursday, 22 September 2022 19:27 (one week ago) link

some friends became UK citizens literally this morning, maybe I'll send it to them as a gift

rob, Thursday, 22 September 2022 19:28 (one week ago) link

i sent it to a friend whose (recently) ex-husband is from Liverpool

sarahell, Thursday, 22 September 2022 19:31 (one week ago) link

lol that sounds much more apt

often. anyway it's true there are plot holes here.

ꙮ (map), Thursday, 22 September 2022 19:36 (one week ago) link

I only gave so much thought to these lyrics, but here is a potential chorus for the answer track by the Northern Birds

It's party time / It's a hen FAP
You call us old ladies / here's a bitch slap
It's party time / We want hen FAP
On second thought, think we're gonna stay home

sarahell, Tuesday, 27 September 2022 06:25 (one week ago) link

Don't want to piss in the pool here, but what makes this different from your Goldie Lookin Chain / Pete and Bas / Kurupt FM / Big Shaq any number of comedy UK rap things from the past years?

Urbandn hope all ye who enter here (dog latin), Tuesday, 27 September 2022 11:16 (one week ago) link

pete n bas aren't comedy really. i mean can't remember glc having any bars as good as some of pete's stuff on 'mr worldwide' for instance and i think he's generally weaker than bas overall.

oscar bravo, Tuesday, 27 September 2022 12:03 (one week ago) link

Bas has pretty serious skills tbh

Blues Guitar Solo Heatmap (Free Download) (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Tuesday, 27 September 2022 12:26 (one week ago) link

Not in a mood to elucidate properly but yeah that. Party Time is an outlier and the dark humour is definitely foregrounded but the other work isn't played for laughs. It resonates with me as much because I'm laughing at myself as anything

Mizue loves company (Noodle Vague), Tuesday, 27 September 2022 12:45 (one week ago) link

I've only seen and heard this one. It sort of reminds of once when on a bus going through Ravensthorpe and this guy with a croaky voice was talking loudly about how he had to persuade a friend to throw out his piss stained mattress. And because he was making other passengers laugh he started hamming it up and turning around to his audience "you should have seen this fucking mattress, it was crawling".

calzino, Tuesday, 27 September 2022 12:55 (one week ago) link

lol sarahell
