about

“Skip” evokes that magic dusk hour when the heat of the afternoon dissipates, and friends start to gather on the patio for a singalong co-hosted by tUnE-yArDs and The B-52’s. Carole Pope and Tommy Stinson sit in lawn chairs with feet propped on tree stumps, swapping tour stories and debating the best song by The Slits. Colleen Green huddles with a gaggle of folks around the glowing chiminea to load a bowl. Crickets chirp, frogs croak, leaves crunch, and empty buckets and garden spades become percussive accompaniment. Guitars emerge from cases and connect to amps. Welcome to the party. It’s time we had an uncomfortable discussion.

lyrics

oh wa ho ha ho ho
oh wa ho ha ho ho
I have this thing and I need to give it
isn't it time 'cause I've got to give it away, away, away
fiddle with a sharp quip
is it worth the fuss?
away, away, away
fiddle with a sharp quip

so it's time we had an uncomfortable discussion
all about my aims and what's just for me
but not now please
'cause you won't want to have it
away, away, away
can we elevate?
I believe in electricity your polarity
and other forces of nature
wah!

I have this need for a tangible thing
isn't it time for a tangible thing?
allez, allez, allez
lily-trotter hop skip
is it worth the fuss?
allez, allez, allez
lily-trotter hop skip
forces of nature

huh! huh!
forces of nature
oh wa ho ha ho ho
lily-trotter hop skip
I have this thing
I have this need
I have this thing
I have this need
I have have have have have
fiddle with a sharp quip

I have this place and it's unfixated
isn't it time to be unfixated?
awake, awake, awake
folly-maker flop-flip
fiddle with a sharp quip
lily-trotter hop skip
forces of nature
wah!
ha ha
forces of nature

sweet potato, hot tomato
sweet potato, hot tomato
forces of nature
wah!
