Ett album som stundtals går på repeat hos mig är Cheer av Drug Church som släpptes 2018 via Pure Noise Records.

Texterna är jäkligt lätta att ta till sig och det osar missnöjd arbetsklass och kritik mot kapitalismen samtidigt som sången från Patrick Kindlon är väldigt speciell på ett gött sätt.

Raderna från Weed Pin är underbara…

”Fuck you at $12.50 an hour
I should’ve started a chemical fire
I should’ve burned this fucking place to the ground
To the ground”

Har själv tänkt tanken massor av gånger och vet att det tänktes på många arbetsplatser igår, gjordes idag och kommer tänkas imorgon. Frustration som trycks in i många låtarna på detta album på ett både smart och humoristiskt sätt. Dra på denna plattan, le lite åt eländet med knuten näve och kämpa dig vidare.

Precis när jag skulle klicka spara kom jag ju på att jag filmade en låt när jag drabbades av detta bands råa energi på Groezrock 2014! Fantastisk spelning!

Låttexter från Cheer

1. Grubby

Two months behind on rent now
Smile broad and they forgive you
Slept through a staff meeting
No one expects any different from you

It’s hard to form adult connections
When you sleep on turtle bedspreads
I can fake my way through a date
But I (can’t hide how child I am)

Misplaced another invoice
Add another dude to avoid
Bad with days and shitty with times
Guess its Thai takeout valentines

It’s hard to form adult connections
When you sleep on turtle bedspreads
I can fake my way through a date
But I (can’t hide how child I am)

When you’re just charming enough to survive
When the people you owe they like you and so you don’t die
When all you’ve got in your pocket is handshakes and lies
You’re allowed to sit down but trust it’ll be a short ride

2. Strong References

Somewhere between low expectations
And a decade long malaise
A slimy well of self-deprecation
And a fucked up fight picking phase

You look good in that
I mean it
Maybe lose the shirt though

See, I told you so
Just admit it
You are the next big thing
This shoot is pure gold
Platinum even
I take no credit, you’re the reason

You look good in that
I mean it
Maybe lose the shirt though
I was young and I needed the money
I was young and I needed the money

You’ve got a rare energy
You’re a natural
A regular Tony Ward
You look good in that
No, I really mean it
You look good in that
Maybe lose the shirt though

3. Avoidarama

[Verse 1]
Put in an appearance
Fifteen minutes and out
Just stick your head in
Say ”What’s up?” to old friendsI’d rather end it
Few seconds I’m out
Find an oven, stick my head in
I’ll let you know how it ends[Chorus]
I hear your story
Depression, home you’re staying
I hear your story
A laptop night complaining
I hear your story
Those bitter thoughts invading[Verse 2]
C’mon just swing through
It really won’t hurt
People they miss you
You can leave when you want

I prefer strong exits
Borrowed boat at midnight
I’m swimming in chains now
But you go have a good time

[Chorus]
I hear your story
Depression, home you’re staying
I hear your story
A laptop night complaining
I hear your story
Those bitter thoughts invading[Outro]
Fortress
Fortress home
Barricade
Barricade doors (No can ever locate the key)

4. Dollar Story

From the sharpie on the tile
To the black mold found behind the drywall
There’s an energy to poverty you can’t run from
But I’m not even hiding
You can adjust to anything if you’re leaving
Even dollar store clorox you’re always breathing
Drop ceilings raw feelings basement existence
Life of a broke lonely pissantThat’s just your nature
Cheap drugs raw sex
Low rent high drama
It’s just how the ventless vent
High riskStretch plastic over broken windows
To the space heater with built-in stove
Bare bulb overhead lighting
Mood future black hole you’re always fighting
Particle board table depression
Body gets it but brain misses message
Tub washing clothes to save on quarters
Need the money for your court dateCan’t adjust (high risk)
Low ambition (high risk)
Nothing going (high risk)
Can’t adjust (high risk)

5. Unlicensed Guidance Counselor

A petty grievance pushed you to violence
Tough break and now you’re facing some chargesIf you live long enough
You’ll do something wrong enough
That you feel shame enough
To say enough’s enoughPush your sister’s boyfriend down the stairs
Steal $40 from the till
There’s a learning process hereSomething often lost: life is process not product
Gotta break some bones to have them set proper
Small money fight so you set a fire
Space was occupied so a man dies there

If you live long enough
You’ll do something wrong enough
That you feel shame enough
To say enough’s enough

Push yourself down the stairs
Steal tens of thousands from your band
God he’s indifferent and nobody cares

Here’s your life advice

6. Weed Pin

First time in dress shoes, and you slip
New guy puts his thumb in the Petri dishSon, you did some sloppy science
Now the samples can’t be trusted
You’ve set this lab back years
You’ve halted the march of progressYou did some sloppy science
Now the samples can’t be trusted
You’ve set this lab back years
You’ve halted the march of progressHard to choose a career, when you’re bad at everything

Pay shit rates, get shit labor
I should’ve started a chemical fire

Son, you did some sloppy science
Now the samples can’t be trusted
You’ve set this lab back years
You’ve halted the march of progress

You did some sloppy science
Now the samples can’t be trusted
You’ve set this lab back years
You’ve halted the march of progress

Kid, you soiled the samples
That’s a decade of collected dataFuck you at $12.50 an hour
I should’ve started a chemical fire
I should’ve burned this fucking place to the ground
To the ground
To the groundFirst time in dress shoes and you slip
New guy puts his thumb in the Petri dish
Stained lab coat with weed pin
New guy dragged off of the premisesHard to choose a career when you’re bad at everything
Hard to choose a career when you’re bad at everything
