The Drones – Boredom

Hey, remember how much we love the Drones?
It’s like listening to music while driving blind, and still knowing where your going just by following the rumbling tune that’s on a high speed road. Reality always get weirder than what you feel like when listening to “the Drones sensation”. “In your face” is what i call it. It’s a pot full of gold that can break your bones. The words bring truth, and a light to sore eyes. A rush of lyrical roll with the most coolest rocking souls of Australia. By far my most fav down under band for the past long years…  Well, if you press play there is no way, to skip this introduction.
A new music video has landed for the single Boredom, that’s been shooted in Melbourne and Tokyo!  Boredom is the 3rd release off
the band’s 7th album Feelin Kinda Free. It’s their most eclectic and experimental album to date.  
Recorded at Tropical Fuck Storm Studios in Melbourne Australia, with
Aaron Cupples, who also sat behind the desk to recorded 2006’s LP Gala
Mill. Feelin Kinda Free is the first album in over a decade to feature
original Drones drummer Christian Strybosch. He is joined by long time
members Gareth Liddiard, Fiona Kitschin, Dan Luscombe and Steve Hesketh.

Feelin Kinda Free is a bad trip you can dance to. It’s a punch in the
brain summed up by the first line of the album’s opener Private
Execution: “The best songs are like bad dreams”.
It is not like other music.
It is not your stock jock “modern” retro rehash, rather an avant avalanche of everything coming back to haunt you.

It explores themes such as koro syndrome, the fruits of western
imperialism, ISIS, celebrity chefs, being a “fucking cunt”, seaside
statecraft, beach-bum race riots, Rupert Murdoch, the new Middle
Eastern/European diaspora, the spectre of neofascism, Hugo Boss,
Luftwaffe psychological warfare techniques, girls, sweet revenge,
capitalist consumer psychosis, body image dysmorphia/mania, Gertrude
Bell, eating people and selling yourself, having great skin, leftist
utopianism, scientific triumphalism, E.T. and the mindless assumption
that alien lifeforms would be nicer than us simply because of their
technological superiority. 


The ‘burbs are growing like a fingernail

Slower than the dullest pain

I want the hunger and cold of the knights of old

When there was blood up to the himalayas
I’m saying farewell to the welfare state
The only comfort is a caliphate
I’m guessing war sure beats any old north shore beach
Or any western suburb single player
I’m looking for the type of test
A cataclysm make me beat my chest
Man any kinda ism beats a singing competition
On a tv fat with gnash and wail
They got me singing in a different scale
Don’t wanna push no pram
Or join a bikie gang
Or flip a burger for the infidel
No one ever lives to tell
What’s at the bottom of an oil well

Boredom boredom
I’m gonna take a pic down there
Put my index finger in the air
Boredom boredom
Gonna tag it with my user name
And you can flag it for it’s guts and brains

Got me a lawyer in the ACT
Got me the fuck outta the PNG
I’m telling y’all failed states they ain’t exactly great
But neither’s prison in the Bismarck sea
Terra’s firma in the southern lands
Shock and awe is all for stretch humvees
The casual exhibition of a recent acquisition’s
All the intervention they got planned
I miss the hustle of the Baghdad days
It weren’t a shit hole in the late ’80s
That thing with W, don’t let it trouble you
It’s all a distant hen’s night anyway
I hear ‘em screaming for a Chippendale
That looks like Eminem, it must be 2am
And it’s like nothing here is even real
You’re just so lucky that you get to feel

Boredom boredom
I didn’t come here for the thrills and spills
I just like the way i don’t get killed
Boredom boredom
You get the house, land, bang the whole biz
If you can just remember where it is
Boredom boredom
Don’t fucking tell me that you ain’t got room
You ever really seen a baby boom?
Boredom boredom
Man I was born in the cradle of civilisation
And I plan on dying in it’s tomb
