"What happens when a bomb is detonated in close containement
by a cripple in an elephant suit? That's what I call entertainment"
Xtul is what happens when three disaffected deities take over a patch of deserted woodland and fill it with genius level runaway children armed with computers and home-made explosives. And they all form an experimental Hip Hop Band.
The Gorillaz are all very well, but they are just cartoon characters. Xtul are deities, and they are also - by any normal stretch of the imagination - criminally insane.
Xtul is what happens when Throbbing Gristle, Kurt Weill, and Dr Dre meet up in a bar owned by The Manson Family and have very nasty sex with each other.
Make up your own mind.
Genocide is the B Side of the 2014 Christmas single from Xtul. I hope it replaces 'Mistletoe and Wine' in the affections of the great unwashed
C'mon censors throughout the land
here's something you won't understand
its something violent crude and vicious
directed at an entire species
you know what I mean
the way you act is quite obscene
take a lesson from history its not surprising
your in dread of the black flags rising
we need a break both sharp and clean
living in the anthropocene
you seem to think its your distinction
to avoid being part of the mass extinction
plead for your life
while the planet reaches out for its sharpest knife
You made burgers from your sacred cow
but its twilight of the humans now
I do not like the human race
I do not like its stupid face
I am hearing disturbing whispers that those peculiar folk who apparently operate from a community deep in the woods on the Cornish border, are releasing a two song Christmas single. They apparently harbour the wish that "hope it replaces 'Mistletoe and Wine' in the affections of the great unwashed". I would hazard a guess that a song called 'Genocide' featuring what I can only imagine is a totally unlicensed David Bowie sample, is unlikely to be out for very long in any form before a Cease and Desist letter comes. And as for it becoming a perennial Christmas favourite? Who knows? But it is in far better taste than many Christmas songs. I can't wait for the A-Side next week.
