HYBRIDS - PRESS

 
 
  The Independent On Sunday 1999  
 
 
 

The nation's remixers get to work on last Creatures album.

After Siouxsie Sioux & Budgie released their latest Creatures album, Anima Animus, earlier in 1999, they were apparently deluged with requests from remixers.  This is the pick of a crop that includes Howie B. Witchman and the Beloved, plus newer artists such as Icarus or Dr Psyche.  While there are some chunky beats and catchy loops, it's better suited to home listening rather than the dancefloor.  The tracks that work best are those that capture The Creatures' dark, anarchic spirit - as in Howie B's lascivious mix of Prettiest Thing.  Chamber's smoothly menacing take on EP track Slipping Away, the frantic Guillotine by abstract crew Black Dog and Witchman's hypnotic '4x4 Mix of Say.  The rest feature less remarkable grooves, falling between the two stools of clubland beats and the truly experimental.  

3/5

  Prettiest Thing Lyrics  
 
 
 

I am gone I am sold
Can I take her home while I am sleeping
I put it on fits so well
Dead fish floating up to the ceiling

She's the prettiest thing I've ever seen
Such a beautiful violence moving in
She's the prettiest thing I've ever seen
Prettiest thing I'm moving in

I put it on it fits my soul
You know she spoke these words while she was sleeping
Razors' edge sliding in razors' edge
Wanna feel my fingers dipping in

Dip in

She's the prettiest thing I've ever seen
Such a beautiful violence coming in

Dip in

She's the prettiest thing I've ever seen
Such a beautiful violence moving in
She's the prettiest thing I've ever seen
Never say never do it again

Dip in

She's the prettiest thing I've ever seen
Prettiest thing I'm moving in
She's the prettiest thing I've ever seen
Prettiest thing I'm coming in

  Disconnected Lyrics  
 
 
 

Don't you think it funny
Don't you think it sad
I was thinking of you
Thinking frozen land

Make the heart grow fonder
Don't make it separate
Just a small reminder
A keepsake

And when you're feeling sad
Can't imagine happiness
And when you're feeling glad
Alaska shows her greedy hand

Don't you think it funny
Don't you think it sad
Starting to fade 
In Siberian land

In Siberia

Just when you're comforted
Just when you start to breathe
The winter pounces
Like a band of thieves

Oh the pain of joy
Oh the joy of pain
Zoom in
Zoom out
Cut
Pullback
Fade to black

You're disconnected
Disconnected

Make the heart grow fonder
Then obliterate
Just a small reminder
A keepsake

Don't you think it funny
Don't you think it sad
Nothing left of you in this Arctic land
In Antarctica

  Exterminating Angel Lyrics  
 
 
 

Here it comes again
Taste of jagged glass and rusty can
There are just black holes
Where the stars would be watching
Just black holes
Where the stars should have been

Plumes of dirt
Caress a urine coloured sun
Swarms of angels
Come to kill your sons
And there's nothing but black holes
Where the stars should've been
Nothing but black holes
Where the stars would be watching

Oh those strange Argonauts
Digging again in your pit
Cover them in menstrual stream
cover them black gold
Plunge them into ingots
Ripping through your menstrual stream
Rising up taste of rusted can
And jagged glass feeling again
Here it comes again

Hordes of locust blot out your sun
Raining down rain on everyone
Poor little rich thing
Poor little bleeding heart
Poor little misunderstood
Piss on it I'm sick of it
Enough is enough
I wanna fuck it up

Out of sync out of phase
Out of sight out of spite
Raining down raining everyone
Poor little rich thing
Poor little bleeding heart
Poor little misunderstood
Piss on it I'm sick of it

Here it comes again
Taste of jagged glass and rusty can
There are just black holes
Where the stars should've been
Just black holes
Where the stars would be watching

  Slipping Away Lyrics  
 
 
 

Pale against the sun
My world is slowly dissolving
Ground beneath my feet
It's melting away

Black falls into black
I'm just a shadow of my former self
Losing gravity
Don't you know I'm slipping away

Fix your stare, load your eyes
Now I'm shot down in flames
Fix your stare, load your eyes
All in the firmament flares

A sea of melting clocks
The tick tock - time dripping away
All that was for real is just a memory
Starting to fade

All that was for real
Just a memory slipping away
It's slipping away

  All She Could Ask For Lyrics  
 
 
 

All she could ask for
How could she want more?
Down by the river her body lies cold
Dream me an empire
Dream me ocean floor
Dream me an alibi
Dream me her once more
In her eyes my reflection
In her eyes rivers dance
In her eyes mute devotion
In her eyes my defense 
Glistening Sculpture
Life statuesque
The sights overwhelm me
I catch my breath
Only the river, my only home
I'll die beside her
I'm going home
Down by the river her body lies cold
All she could ask for
How could she want more?

  Pinned Down Lyrics  
 
 
 

I can't think, can't speak
Are you talking to me?
I drift off with such ease
I'm not listening you see

Pinned down without a crown
Are you talking to me?
I drift off with such ease
I'm not listening you see

The same words flesh eating birds
You always like to bring it down
You want to own it you want to know it
You're only safe when it's pinned down

A bug stuck on a pin
You love to see it struggling
She's not a pet to be tamed
Think you can bring her will to heel

Your baying hounds head to the ground
You always like to bring it down
You can't take it can only break it
You'll be the one that's left pinned down

Pinned down without a crown
Are you talking to me?
I drift off with such ease
I'm not listening you see

Eat these words these praying birds
Now I'm the one that lets you down
Your pinned down and you've found
It makes on difference to me

  Guillotine Lyrics  
 
 
 

Buckle and grind
Your bubbling mind
Can't shut it down
It keeps running around
No friend of mine
You are no friend of mine
Well you know we could've gone far
I'm the one left alarmed
Tumbling blind
Double turbine
How long consciousness
Disembodied wreckage
I'm paralysed
With no friend of mine
Well you know you wear
Well you know if you tear
Buckle and grind
Your bubbling mind
Can't shut it down
A life it has found
Want calm want friend want end
Wanna Armageddon for
Tumbling blind
Trouble in mind
Can't shut it down
It keeps running around
I wanna know I wasn't there
I wanna hear
Is there anybody out there
Limbs over there
They're not mine
They're not mine
Buckle and grind
With your bubbling mind
Trouble 
You're in trouble

  Say Lyrics  
 
 
 

I heard the news today
Billy's gone away
Left us all for good
No one understood

You only had to say
I would understand
You only had to say
Whatever come what may

I was feeling low
You called and you were too
We'd meet Saturday
It happened on Wednesday

You only had to say it's sad
I would understand

I don't want you brave
A truce we made today
If you're feeling sad
On me you can depend

You only have to say

  Turn It On Lyrics  
 
 
 

All you rely on
Here come the storms
To shatter control
From the war lords

Can you feel the power
It turns me on
Unpredictable
Turn it on
Feel the power
Invincible

Wont play their games
But we're a playful thing
Everything to risk
Everything to sink

Gonna change what I can
Accept what I can't
Because I've got the power
Chameleon

Turn it on
Feel the power
Unpredictable
Feel the power
Untamable
Turn it on

Hurricane and earthquake
Monsoon and tidal wave
here come the storms
They really turn me on

Unpredictable
Turn it on
It turns me on
Turn it on
Omnipotent
Unpredictable
Untamable
Invincible
Chameleon
Turn it on

  2nd Floor  
 
 
 

Apartment door
Is left ajar
An eye in the glass
On the parquet floor

All the guests 
Have left and gone
But I'm still here
On the 2nd floor

2nd floor
And I still want more
2nd floor

Aftermath
In a amber glow
A vodka bath
For this shipwrecked soul

Seconds fly
As the years flow by
But I don't care
I'm on the 2nd floor

2nd floor
And I still want more
2nd floor

Coming back for more

Why fear death
When death never hurt no one
2nd floor

  SIOUXSIE:  "It's when you still want more, when you want the party to continue and it's beyond being sensible.  I remember times when I was the one person left in a place, and the euphoria that goes along with it.  2nd Floor was my idea of what a private drinking bar would be, that was open all the time.  There's something very religious about bars.  They're like altars.  The lighting.  The colour of the bottles.  Having a drink.  It's like Santa's Grotto time."  Source: Diva 04/99.  
     

 


     
  Thank You Lyrics  
 
 
 

Thank you for
The last few days
I know we'll meet again and soon
It's written in the stars
Written in my hand
Please take care
Please take all my love
Til we meet again
I hope it's soon

  Take Mine Lyrics  
 
 
 

Dog in a manger
Happy days
Why don't you
Take it all
Take what is left

Take mine

Counting out
And putting nothing in
You calculate
And multiply your sins

Take mine

I know you
Scared to be alone
If I were you
I would be too

Take mine

Ruled by this
It needn't be this way
Your misery
Seeking company

Take mine

Are you happy now
