FAVE 5: Psychedelic Porn Crumpets are back, and they're sharing their Fave 5 lyrics of all time!



2020 certainly hasn't been a barrel of laughs for most of us so far, but in news that will whack a smile on the dial, Perth's Psychedelic Porn Crumpets have just unveiled their first new music for the year with their brand new tune Mr Prism! - and dang, is it a rowdy barrel of awesome!

Having spent the second half of 2019 on tour in the UK and Europe (hey, remember live music and touring?!), the Porn Crumpets returned to Australia for a summer festival run before the joyless wonder that is COVID-19 abruptly brought live music to a halt. But absence has only made the heart grow fonder, with the Psychedelic Porn Crumpets more ready than ever to bring live music to your ears, and the beautiful chaos of Mr Prism! is just the start of some amazing times to come. And today in honour of the brand new tune, we grabbed the lads to share some of their Fave 5 lyrics of all time! Get comfy and come check 'em out!




THE SHINS - NEW SLANG


"Gold teeth and a curse for this town Were all in my mouth Only, I don't know how they got out, dear. Turn me back into the pet I was when we met I was happier then with no mindset."

I've always loved how the Shins lyrics sound like Russell Brand had been throwing pages out of a thesaurus at them, sometimes they so sound so over-analysed but this verse here makes me remember every past love and that mess of a puddle you become when you first start getting to know each other, it seems like nothing else in the world matters. Until you get your heart torn out and then you're back listening to Metallica.

ARCTIC MONKEYS - THIS HOUSE IS A CIRCUS


"This house is a circus, berserk as fuck We tend to see that as a perk, though look  What it's done to your friends Their memories are pretend And the last thing that they want is for the feeling to end."

This paragraph perfectly sums up every share-house I've ever lived in. Everytime i hear this track I can actually see my mate losing his mind as he drips into the sofa's abyss. The pretend memories line is amazing, Alex Turner is a genius, I could have picked any one of his tracks really, but this tune slaps as well.

DAN LE SAC vs SCROOBIUS PIP - THOU SHALL ALWAYS KILL


"Thou shall not attend an open mic and leave as soon as you've done your shitty little poem or song you self-righteous prick."

This whole song is filled with zingers but this line might be the greatest segment in any song. EVER. If you've played in a band, or have been to an open mic night or any weeknight gig then you know exactly what this line is about. That t*ss pot bloke/band who rocks up late asking for a pic or god forbid drumsticks, play the show, empty the rider, spill beer all over your amp and then clear off once they're ego has been bloated. Fremantles filled with em'. F*ck those people.

THE BEATLES - ACROSS THE UNIVERSE


"Words are flowing out Like endless rain into a paper cup They slither while they pass They slip away across the universe."

Now that is dope! John Lennon MANNNN, Johnny Johnny Johnny boy! But yeah, in all seriousness this is profound. He's chatting about something, describes what it's like, then what it's doing and then what happens to it in four beautiful lines, nuts. Here for a moment, then gone forever. I'm sure someone's already studied this song to its absolute bones but it's worth it, I always find myself coming back to this track and it only gets better.


OUTKAST - SPOTTIEOTTIEDOPALISCIOUS


"As the plot thickens it gives me the dickens

Reminiscent of Charles a lil' discotheque Nestled in the ghettos of N****ville, USA Via Atlanta, Georgia a lil' spot where Young men and young women go to experience They first li'l taste of the night life Me? Well I've never been there; well perhaps once But I, was so engulfed in the Olde E I never made it to the door you speak of, hard core While the DJ sweatin' out all the problems And the troubles of the day While this fine bow-legged girl fine as all outdoors Lulls lukewarm lullabies in your left ear Competing with "Set it Off, " in the right But it all blends perfectly let the liquor tell it "Hey hey look baby they playin' our song" And the crowd goes wild as if Holyfield has just won the fight But in actuality it's only about 3 A.M And three n**** just don' got hauled Off in the ambulance (sliced up) Two n***** don' start bustin' (wham wham) And one n***** don' took his shirt off talkin' 'bout "Now who else wanna fuck with Hollywood Courts?" It's just my interpretation of the situation".


This last track needed the whole verse, it's a masterpiece. It paints a world so pristine in detail you feel like you're there. The track is also incredible, it's really not fair some people are that good.
