Saucer Sixties pop framed just-so becomes timeless art pop.

And wow, I love the voice of main singer Sarah Eisenfitz. The male vox (Simon's?) are great too. Favorite track: Are You Ready Girl?.

NEW ADVENTURES IN POP 020

The garage rock ‘n roll with sixties-styled melodies and psychedelic pop from this London-based quintet led by Simon (who was the front man of the marvelous THE LOVES in their time) have completely and irremediably won us over. With Sarah’s powerful and versatile voice in the lead, KNICKERS are releasing an EP with four solid songs, one of which is the huge hit, “My Baby’s Just A Baby (But I Love Him So)” with its rock n’ roll echoes, pushed on by the hallucinogenic synthesizer accents. It’s followed by “Are You Ready Girl?” (a cover of a Dave Davies song from the 60s that was originally thought of as a solo album for the integral member of THE KINKS, but which was never released until decades later on an album of oddities), a song that moves things in a different direction to show its tendencies toward the velvety soul of Sam Cooke and Otis Redding. “A Thousand Ways” begins and it seems like a THE BYRDS’ song but it winds up sounding like BELLE & SEBASTIAN decided to play some Northern Soul. The result? Colorful and emotional like few others. However, “Darling” leans toward the sweetest girl-group sound, twisted by distorted guitars and aggressive, dirty drums. It gets stuck in our ears with no hope of ever getting it out of our heads.

Track Name: My Baby's Just A Baby (But I Love Him So)
(My baby’s just a baby… My baby’s just a baby)

He gets beat up by every
Dog-gone body on his block
He can’t tell the time you know
He don’t know his ticking from his tock

He’s not too clever, he’s kind of slow
My baby’s just a baby… But I love him so
(My baby’s just a baby… My baby’s just a baby)

He don’t know the fashions no
It looks like he’s living in a cave
His face is always cut up
Cos his daddy didn’t teach him how to shave

What he’s on, I just don’t know
My baby’s just a baby… But I love him so
(My baby’s just a baby, my baby’s just a… One two three go)

My friend’s they say that I have changed (My baby’s just a baby)
My friend’s they say that I’m insane (My baby’s just a baby)
Who cares?

(My baby’s just a baby… My baby’s just a baby)

He gets beat up by every
Dog-gone body on his block
He can’t tell the time you know
He don’t know his ticking from his tock

He’s not too clever, he’s kind of slow
My baby’s just a baby… But I love him so
(My baby’s just a baby… My baby’s just a baby)

My baby’s just a baby (but I love him so)
My baby’s just a baby (but I love him so)
My baby’s just a baby (but I love him so)
Track Name: Are You Ready Girl?
Well in this new life, that you’ve found
Are you positive? Are you sure?
And are you ready girl? Are you ready?
Though it’s fun you talk about
It’s the night life you explore
So are you ready girl? Are you ready?

Because you’re living with a man
Who will find no understanding
Do you mind if I break down & cry?
Will you ever know the way
That I feel for you each day?
So are you ready girl? Are you ready?
Are you ready girl? Are you ready?
Are you ready girl? Are you ready?
Are you ready?
Are you ready girl?
Are you ready?

He’ll buy you diamonds, he’ll buy you rings
He’ll buy your time, he’ll buy your sin
But are you ready girl? Are you ready?
He’ll keep you laughing for a while
Then he’ll leave you, with a smile
So are you ready girl? Are you ready?

Because you’re living with a man
Who will find no understanding
Do you mind if I break down & cry?
Will you ever know the way
That I feel for you each day?
So are you ready girl? Are you ready?
Are you ready girl? Are you ready?
Are you ready girl? Are you ready?
Are you ready?
Are you ready girl?
Are you ready?
Track Name: A Thousand Ways
There’s a thousand ways, to get yourself alone
And there’s a thousand ways, to live out on your own
There’s a thousand ways, & many tracks
To get yourself from there to back
And there’s a thousand ways back home

There’s a thousand ways, to travel when you know
And there’s a thousand ways, to find out when you don’t
There’s a thousand ways, to live your life
From yesterday to Sunday night
And there’s a thousand ways back home

When I get back home, I’ll get unbent
I don’t understand just why you went

Another brightened corner, has turned to a flicker
Because your light was taken away
I’ll see you tomorrow but that doesn’t help no
When all I want is for you to stay

There’s a thousand ways, to just give up and run
And there’s a thousand ways, to forget all that’s gone
There’s a thousand ways to hate yourself
But nothing helps til someone else says
There’s a thousand ways
There’s a thousand ways
There’s a thousand ways back home
Track Name: Darling
Darling, I know you’re thinking
Yes, no, have I been drinking
I get off on your sweet kisses darling

Darling, when you can’t see me
I get sea-sick oh baby
Nothing cures me like you do, oh darling

Oh what can I do?
Cos I’m in heaven every time I’m with you
Which means that every other time I’m in Hell
With other people just like Jean-Paul Satre said, he said so

Darling, I know I’m slurring
My words, but still I’m yearning
For your touch & one quick cwtch, oh darling

Believe what I’m fed
The sacred order of the easily lead
Whenever you’re away that’s when I go wrong
You are my Bernie, I’m your Elton John

Just one more kiss
Or just one more little soft flick of your wrist
Sorry but you here makes me into a letch
Turns all the alphabet to X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X

Darling, je sais que tu penses
Oui, non, est-ce que j’ai bu
Tu m’allumes avec tes baisers, darling
Tu m’allumes avec tes baisers, darling
Tu m’allumes avec tes baisers, darling
