about

Out November 1st 2014!
Preorder now on red vinyl!

What a wonderful idea it was to press these songs on a split 7"! The idea came up on their last tour. Lambs just had recorded a couple of new songs and Kenny Kenny Oh Oh still had two unreleased songs from their last recording-session. ...and all songs are among the best, both bands have yet released!

Lambs are probably one of the best bands coming from Cologne/Germany these days. Cool Postpunk with a touch of Deutschpunk. Some german bands like Captain Planet, Dackelblut come to mind, but they still have a very distinct sound and they mix it with catchy guitar melodies, pummeling basslines and driving drumsounds. Great misanthropic, critical and radical lyrics in german.

From Leipzig/Germany, Kenny Kenny Oh Oh is an all-female band, sounding like a modern, more savage Kleenex/Liliput with their simple, fast, and super catchy EP. Charming, sharp, snotty German accents, vocals are very Chrissie Hynde a la Pretenders, sung to English lyrics. It was worth several listens before writing this tidbit, not just because I like to be thorough (um, try to), but because I just thought it was awesome. Some might call this riot grrrl, but it’s really just good, straight-forward punk.

Track Name: Lambs - Konsequenz
alles bedacht
alles durchgedacht
Konsequenz geht mal wieder sonst wohin
auf jede Frage: keine Antwort
und wieder stehst du fehl an deinem Platz

alles mal egal
der Kopf mal leer
als tausend Stimmen
die nur Scheiße erzählen

hierbei bist du allein
ist auch vielleicht besser so
als Ratschläge die nicht helfen
als Gelaber was nur stresst
Track Name: Lambs - Wiederholung
Aussicht im toten Winkel
Generationen volle Scheiße
Tradition und Gewohnheit
verschwimmen in einem ekelhaften Brei

Wiederholung

Alte Lügen neu verpackt
und wieder ausgepackt
wieder und wieder und wieder
Wiederholung

keine Ahnung wie das noch irgendwen interessieren kann
keine Ahnung warum Tradition nicht einfach kaputt gehen kann

Geh kaputt! Tradition
Track Name: Kenny Kenny Oh Oh - Nothing Left to Say
You had a vision of yourself
Now you take your life and run through the valley

They had a picture of you
Now that your broken you should stop playing

Do you feel that there's nothing
to be said

You lost that vision of yourself
Now that your broken you should stop playing

They have that picture of you
Now they take your life and run through the valley

There's that moment you feel high
and it's all about this
that there's something to hold on to
and it's all about this
There's that moment you feel high
and it's all about this
that there's something to hold on to
and it's nothing less than this
Track Name: Kenny Kenny Oh Oh - Sandy Doesn't Know
She started her career with 16
She seemed smart
and got the routine
Training started at 7 am
Tired but well dressed
She sat at the desk

And now
Sandy doesn't know people anymore
You don't know my heart
what I think of you

She learned about money
whole first year
and which is the way
to a perfect career
Business, just business
fills up her brain
execute orders
that's all she does

Now she's making in real estate
Sandy is not a big light
She works the whole time
Her function is clear
She always smiles so bright
