Easpa Géag - Songs About Focail
It’s been a while (well, 2 weeks) since we’ve put up a new track, but here it is! As usual, you can download it, and all the other songs we’ve made available so far, from our soundcloud, for free as well. You should probably do it pretty quickly though, before someone finds them and tries to sue us.
We never set out to make a song so heavily based around bands associated with the Richter Collective (though we admittedly did toy with the idea of deliberately running with it), it just worked out that they put out a lot of bands with a lot of songs that had samples at the right speed. We do quite enjoy the fact that we managed to make a song (almost) entirely out of Punk and Hardcore samples that doesn’t really sound anything like a Punk song though.

The song title and artwork, are based on Songs About Fucking by Big Black, who aren’t Irish but you should check them out anyway because they’re fucking amazing! It’s a pretty iconic album cover (and name) and there have been several parodies over the years. Our favourite is Kid606, who went all out and named one of his albums Songs About Fucking Steve Albini, complete with amusing/distressing artwork. It’s really fucking good if you’re into droney analogue stuff.
It’s also a pun on the fact that, unlike most of our other tracks, there isn’t really a message or unifying theme behind it, we just liked the way the samples sounded together. In short, it’s about “fuck all”. Yes, we do still find that joke funny.
