The Old and the Useless
(Copyright 2002 Dakota Goldsworth)

Oh pretty babe, I like your style. You know I haven't seen a chick like you in quite a while.

Oh pretty babe, I dig your soul. It turns out you're just a tired old whore named rock & roll.

(chorus)

All the old men say you've been around a block or two. Yeah, you sold away all your charms and now you're through.

Oh yeh, hey ho! Oh yeh, let's go!

I met the girl at a hotdog stand, scheming around, said she was with the band. Yeah, we just left ol' Miss Love waiting at the bar.

Well, I'm so young and you're so old. The living dead, honey's love's gone cold. Ah, don't you all think it's time that we moved along?

(chorus)

All the old men say you've been around a block or two. Yeah, you sold away all your charms and now you're through.

Oh, but you're so pretty, you're so pretty old. To a research market John, your thrills were sold.

Oh yeh, hey ho! Oh yeh, let's go!

BEST ALTERNATIVE SONG


Epic Soundtracks
This has been playing in my head for about 2 years now-and i never seem to get sick of it..Its frikkin' absurdly catchy tune and beautifully irreverent playful camp attitude raises a huge smile whenever it comes into my head.Its utter brilliance also confirms my suspicions that i'm RIGHT for worshipping it-and all those bastards who snootily turn their noses up at it probarbly 'cos of 'production' issues are WRONG...


Freak Scene..
Genius lofi glam pop.An absoloute classic.Vintage T.Rex on a 2 track.The Ramones with lipstick'n'eye liner....Its a trashy,thrashy,joyfully dumb thing of incredible beauty.Rock'n'roll at its most magical..


The Hitmen - Completed Contracts
Despite what some doctors may tell us, herpes is not the most infectious thing going around. That award has to go to this ultra cool track from Florida nutbags The Galaxy 6. The Old & the Useless is the song The Ramones and T Rex would have come up with if they were recording the soundtrack to The Rocky Horror Show. Having said that, these guys have reached that very rare space that most bands never find... they really do have a sound that is entirely their own. Some of the dirtiest fuzz guitar you'll ever hear is complemeted beautifully by the slightly menacing 'oooh ooohs'. Aside from all that, any track that features the immortal words 'Hey Ho, Let's Go' has gotta be a bit of alright


Velvet Goldmine
This is just a brilliant undiscovered indie classic like a cross between glam T.Rex and dumb punkin' Ramones..Exciting,playful,magical pop...Galaxy 6 are one of my total favourite bands on the whole net.There's such a sense of creative freedom and exhileration in their music and songwriting..Taking the drama of Glam,the joyfulrush of power-pop and the the innocent exhuberance of 60s bubblegum,then transforming it into their own witty highly distinctive sound..
