Big Bad Bollocks

Night on the Tiles

Monolyth

An album and band dedicated to getting loaded every single night and reenacting scenes from Trainspotting , is what this is. Musically they must’ve recorded all the songs in a bar and in various states of inebriation. It’s “traditional” English bar music, that is, it’s a bunch of bawdy drinking chanteys covering subjects like picking up skanks and taking them home for a sloppy one. In the case of “Thirteen Pints,” the skank refuses once she sees that the protagonist’s bed is a ratty mattress on his pal’s kitchen floor.

“Guinness” is my favorite song, as it is the Ramones’ “Do You Remember Rock and Roll Radio?” only with the words changed in praise of Guinness stout. That’s absurd! These people are deranged! They’re to Guinness what the Mentors are to sexual harassment! Really! Those who enjoy sucking up the liters will enjoy “Drinkup Yabastards,” “Aunty Mary” and “Drunker Than I Was,” the latter being a disgusting tune about nailing drunken tarts in the back of the bar with all their clothes on. Cheers!
