about

Quel Drag is eleven massive tracks of freaky fun intensity produced by none other than Tom Thacker of GOB and SUM 41!! Thematically, the new album explodes in an unbridled celebration of the weird and wonderful moments that unite us while firmly rejecting the negative forces that try to bring us down. Quel Drag is the antithesis to bummer punk and quite possibly one of the best albums you’ve heard in a very long time.

Track Name: Eurovision
It's all been done, we're done in North America
We've got a plan, the plan is Eurovision

Bye bye, so long, with love as big as guns
Ciao Ciao, bisous, we're off to the EU

Eurovision, you're a vision

A dozen shiny shining stars, half a billion beating hearts

Bye bye, so long, with love bigger than governments
Auf Weidersehen, sunset to the USA

Eurovision, you're a vision

Hate hate hate on the interstate!
Rock rock rock in the eastern bloc!
We were born on the 401,
Eurovision

It's all been done, we're done in North America
And we, we've got a plan
The plan is eurovision
We're hot for eurovision
We're hard for eurovision
We're wet for eurovision
Track Name: Modern Art
You got your youth, you feel alive
You got your fingers, count 'em, 1-2-3-4-5
Living in the city with everybody just like you

I see you frothing at the hips
I see you shooting, man, you're shooting at the lips
alpha-alpha pretty idiot-idiot, you're the shit

What's inside your mind? What makes you so cool?
Reptilian dinner party intellectual
Haha, Ja! Alles Klar! All is clear for me
One day you will be exposed, and I'll be singing

I knew from the start
I knew from the start
You're so damned smart
you're so modern art
you're so modern art

Living in a van, listening to rhetoric
and no one ever asked, to hear about the politics
of being a big man, and beating people with a little stick

You're a Phillistine, I'm a piece of meat
I will not believe the things that I see on TV
I wish I was on TV, then you would see me
I wouldn't be invisible and everybody would say

They knew from the start
They knew from the start
That I'm so damned smart
I'm so modern art
I'm so modern art
Track Name: Bike Thief
1-2-3-4-5-6-7!
Toi, t’as volé ma bicyclette
1-2-3-4-5-6-7!
Mitraillette! Mitraillette!

Bummed out against the curb
Chained in front of Depanneur
Rubber wheels, plastic hair
Long live the moving target

Sweet dreams, sweet dreams,
To the bike thief, bike thief
Nice to meet you!

Live to ride, ride to serve
My solitary passenger
Bike thief come with a mouth full-a gum
Bike thief running, and he's gone gone gone
Pedal to the medal, he's gone gone gone

Sweet dreams, sweet dreams,
To the bike thief, bike thief
Nice to meet you!

Sweet dreams, sweet dreams,
And a kiss on both cheeks!
To the bike thief, bike thief
Nice to meet you!
Track Name: Night Night
Night night, don’t let the bedbugs bite
Don’t let all the things you’ve done wrong keep you up at night
Buzz Buzz, another day undone
Constipation of notifications, give me one more buzz

And it’s all gone wrong
Believe it, Believe it,
Can we all shutup?
Deleted, Deleted
Deleted! Deleted!

Can you hear white noise?
every moment feeding off content
never had a choice
we’re all white noise

It’s been two weeks since I slept without a phone beside my head
I think I forget what it’s like to disconnect
I think that I can’t think, so I close my eyes and sing
La-la-la-la-la-la, fuck it all, is it me or is it real?

Can you hear white noise?
Never had a choice
Never had a choice
we’re all white noise

And it’s all gone wrong
Believe it, believe it
Can we all shut up?
Deleted, Deleted
everyone shut up
I need it, I mean it

I see you walking in my head you are not there you are not there
I see you walking in my head you are nightmare you are nightmare
I explode everywhere
I explode everywhere
I am exploding everywhere
I am exploding everywhere
Track Name: There Goes The Neighborhood
You're on the corner with pocket change
You're in your head but it's re-a-re-a-rearranged
Chewin' gum and you're talking strange
How it's all been changed, yeah it's all been changed

Since hungry ghosts devoured you whole
While you were lookin to soothe your soul
Synthetic truths are coming of age
They're all the rage, yes they're all the rage
And I can't look away

You got your new shoes, there goes the neighborhood
You do you do you, there goes the neighborhood

You're gonna be what you wanna be
not anything that they want you to be
You're chewin gum and you're talking strange
and you're walkin strange, with your pocket change
Change in the taxi, no time for the bus
With dirty hair and illusions of lust
Stories like pictures in broken frames
and they're awful strange, how they've all been changed

I can't see the way you want to
I can't see the way you are
And I know I should just watch you walk

You got your new shoes, there goes the neighborhood
You do you do you, there goes the neighborhood
I got I got to, I hear the neighbors

And they're wonderin where you got to
With the subtle implication
Yeah I wonder where you're off to
I misplaced my invitation

You got your new shoes, there goes the neighborhood
You do you do you, there goes the neighborhood
I got to I got you, right here in the neighborhood
I got to I got you, right here in the neighborhood

There goes the neighborhood

There goes the neighborhood
Track Name: Guillotine
Swinging axe, swinging axe
above my head above my head
with every nametag that I wear
Swinging axe, swinging axe
I’m in my my means, in my means
don’t mean anything
Swinging axe, swinging axe

Guillotine I need you, and it’s off to work we go
Cutting down the time, in unemployment lines

Not at fault not at fault
says the boss says the boss
I get a little piece of paper
nothing on it, nothing on it
and i’m off it on it off it on it off it on it

Guillotine nine-to-five, paying all my things on time
Guillotine every day, and nobody gets paid

Comfort is the silent killer (komfort ist der stillekille)
Idleness the enemy
I fill out the application, poster boy for motivation
I wait here patiently
Make it stop stop stop

Guillotine I need you, and it’s off to work we go
Cutting down the time, in unemployment lines
Who’s looking out for me?
who’s looking out for me?
Track Name: Stains
I thought that I was so smart, not impressionable
Your propositions and your motives are so questionable
Manipulate piece of clay, butt me out in your ashtray
Burning slow, here we go
Everybody, it's three to tango

I played your game
Now I'm a stain
And your boyfriend
He wants me dead

The sun is shining, and I'm having the best time now
That silver lining spread thin, thin like margarine
Such perfect timing to be meek, hilarious and weak
Like the sack of meat I am

Should've got on that plane, with all the other stains
I'd rather be in Berlin, where the girls are pretty
and la-fucking-dee-da

Might be coffee, might be mud
Might be ketchup, might be blood

The sun is shining, and I'm having the best time now
That silver lining spread thin, thin like margarine
Such perfect timing to be meek, hilarious and weak
Like the sack of meat
Like the sack of meat I
Like the sack of meat
Like the sack of meat I am
Track Name: Shrink Wrap
Shrink-shrink wrap-wrap

Wet dreams in the washing machine
Are the kinkiest way to clean my jeans
My brain in the microwave
It’s the only way to have a sunny day

I don’t really know where to start

Sit down and make yourself uncomfortable
I never ever thought that my problems would be trouble

I don’t really know where to start
But I oughta cause I’m falling apart

Shrink-shrink wrap-wrap

Waking up was my first mistake
Falling asleep was my last regret

Wrap me up in cellophane
Give me a kiss! Do I taste the same?

Sometimes I feel depressed
Just kidding it’s all pretend
Sometimes I feel pretend
Just kidding I’m all depressed
I’m all the best
In the bigger picture

Oh yeah, Oh yeah, Shrink-shrink wrap-wrap
In safety blanket

Oh yeah, Oh yeah, Shrink-shrink wrap-wrap
In straight jacket

Oh yeah
Track Name: Shipping & Receiving
I’m in a space
That’s reflective of my wage
Work every day
And I’m tripping every evening

I hate the way
That you flap your gums and say
“Another day,
another half a dollar
Shipping and Receiving”

It’s rare
To see the sun
Life’s alright
As a parasite (as a parasite)

Coast to coast
Man, I think I’m going postal
Another day
In Shipping and Receiving

It’s rare
To see the sun
I’m turning toxic
Assembling boxes
It’s great great great great great
Being full of hate hate hate hate hate
Life’s alright
As a parasite
Track Name: Jet Blue
Jet Blue, Jet Blue!
All eyes on you!
They're all gonna laugh at you!

Blue, Jet Blue, the smell of rubber gloves
Fast food, ten-thousand feet of love
Take off, orgasms from above
Touch down, so are we having fun?

Sucking quarters from a payphone
Je suis le roi of the timezone
Getting sick at domestic
Now I'm getting fresh on SMS

Hurry up and wait at the terminal,
Hurry up and wait, I'm turning blue

Jet Blue, Jet Blue!
Tell them the truth!
They're all making fun of you!

Hot mess on the cold floor
Je suis le roi of the layover
20-20-24 hours to go
I'm gonna blow it, I know I'm gonna blow it

Hurry up and wait at the terminal,
Dirty jokes written on the bathroom stalls,
Checkpoint, edibles, alcohol
Bubble Gum, cock ring, addirol
Hurry up and wait at the terminal,
Hurry up and wait, I'm turning

Blue, Jet Blue, Blue...

Blue Blue Blue!
I love you!
Blue Blue Blue!

Jet Blue, Jet Blue-Blue-Blue-Blue
Jet Blue, Jet Blue-Blue-Blue-Blue
Jet Blue, Jet Blue-Blue-Blue-Blue
and I'm over it
over it
over it
over it!
Track Name: Sue Tissue
I love you, Sue Tissue
But where in the modern world are you?
Off the grid since ‘86
Back aboard the mothership
Someone said they thought they knew it
You were deep in Massachusetts
Tending to a family
With no electricity

Pushing every envelope
You gave all the losers hope
LA’s long lost new wave band
I wanna hold your long lost hand

I first heard ‘Janitor’
Couldn’t stop thinking of her
What was in your mouth that day?
That made you want to sing that way?
Made you want to disappear?
I would whisper in your ear
No one does the way you do
No one does like Sue Tissue

Pushing every envelope
You gave all the losers hope
LA’s long lost new wave band
I wanna hold your long lost hand

Sue Tissue I love you so
Tell us why you had to go?
Pack my bags and I’m ready to roll
I’d become invisible
I like that and I like you too, and I
Want that like I want you too
Won’t you come back?
Won’t you come back?
Won’t you come back?
Won’t you come back?
Sue Tissue?
