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?.

(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?

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?

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

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

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.
