Nicolas RESSOT Le chapeau toujours vissé sur la tête et toujours aussi excellent, JB nous livre un album éthylique dans lequel la question se pose : si les Muppets du show sont bourrées, ceux qui tirent les ficelles le sont-ils forcément aussi ? Réponse : album aussi maîtrisé que spontané ; on ne saura sans doute jamais... Favorite track: The Last of the Kings.

DJHDD This man was bitten by a rabid swamp dog, infested with the cloned DNA of Tom Waits & Hunter S Thompson, he thinks he knows fucking everything, until the day he met the band & they had him institutionalised in an Asylum for obsessive compulsive drunken disorderlies. Maniacal, Belligerent gypsy punk cabaret that makes Gogol Bordello blush.

about

Juke Baritone Melbourne, Australia

Maniacal. Brilliant. Belligerent. Legendary. Comprehensively in your face. Like a Muppet with a real bad attitude. These are just some of the words used to describe the utterly intoxicating Juke Baritone as he's been travelling the world with his rascally troupe of manic noise-makers, assaulting audiences with his tall tales of bad love, good times and the evils of the world. ... more

Track Name: The Last of the Kings
There was a time not long ago when gold fell from the sky
And men of ill description never thought to wonder why
They revelled in the riches and destruction that they bring
They danced the dance of death and on their children’s graves they sing

CHORUS

There came a time soon after that when the gold stopped raining down
These men of ill description started digging up the ground
And when the wells ran dry they never stopped to wonder why
They just danced the dance of death and then they watched their children die

CHORUS

SOLOS

So after when there was nothing left yes everything was gone
These men of ill description never wondered what went wrong
They held their glasses in the air and filled their cups with drink
They danced the dance of death and on their children’s graves they sing

CHORUS
Track Name: Hey God
VERSE 1
I know this guy, he comes here
From time to time, he buys a beer
And I don’t know why, he comes here
I suppose he’s got problems or something he wants to disappear
He hates his life, he hates his job
He hates his wife, he even hates his dog!
And I don’t know why, he hates his dog
Maybe he’s dyslexic or something and got it mixed up with God!
He hates everything, that he has become
He hates everything, that he hasn’t done
And now I know why, he comes here
He don’t say nothing man, he shouts it loud and clear!

CHORUS 1
He says,
Hey God! Don’t you worry about me
I’m doing fine without your generosity
You get such a kick, out of my tragedy
I forgot about you so don’t you worry…
About me

VERSE 2
I know this girl, she works here
She’s always high, but her mind stays clear
And I don’t know why, she’s working here
You know she’s got a degree in economics or something?
She’s getting it out, for two bucks a pop
The old men gather around, and stare at her lot
And I don’t know why, she works here
I suppose all those two bucks must really add up to a lot!
She says she got debts, that she’s paying off
But I know deep down, it secretly gets her off
And now I know why, she’s working here
She don’t say nothing man, she shouts it loud and clear!

CHORUS 2
She says,
Hey God! Don’t you worry about me
I’m doing fine without your generosity
You smote me once around the old apple tree
I forgot about you, so don’t you worry about me
Hey God! Don’t you worry about me
I’m doing fine without your generosity
You get such a kick out of my tragedy
I forgot about you, so don’t you worry
About me

SOLOS

VERSE 3
So this guy Adam, and this girl Eve
They decided that they should, get together
And old Adam, well he’s thinking with his muscle
But that girl Eve, you know she’s out for the hustle
So old Adam, you know he turns to Eve
And he says I’m sick of this guy always bothering me
I want to get out of here baby, what do you think?
And Eve says, sure honey… buy me a drink!
So they sit down, and they have a chat
And they talk about this, and they talk about that
And old Adam says, c’mon! Let’s get out of here honey
And Eve says, sure baby, show me the money! Ha!

CHORUS 3
Hey God! Don’t you worry about me
I’m doing fine without your generosity
You get such a kick out of my tragedy
I forgot about you, so don’t you worry, don’t you worry
About me!
Hey God! Don’t you worry about me
I’m doing fine without your demagogueraphy!
You get such a kick out of our tragedy
I forgot about you, don’t you worry, don’t you worry about me
[VAMP]
I don’t need you anyway, we’re doing fine these days
Don’t you worry, don’t you worry about me
Hey God!
