How Long Does The Raunch?
Starts with jazz guitar chords and vocals. Then Drum Machine, Vibes, Marimba and electric guitar. A whole lot of questions? How Long Does the Raunch Stop In One?
"Over stimulation. Modern life is demanding. Filling a dude with images and feels, emotions dragged and pulled out, demanded. Follow up to Be Sad For Me and coming from a similar direction. This time worrying about "normalization" of images of violence and sex and the immediate, thrilling power they have. How they are described as "raunchy". Kind of cute. Gaddafi on youtube getting hunted and hacked and kicked by a mob. Starving children in third world countries. Can you unsee such things? How long do "raunchy" things stay plain old raunchy? Do they get stale or do you? How long do they stay? Stay "raunchy"? What happens to you?What do you do with it? What does it do to you?"
This track shows how far Graney and Moore have taken their mad R&B licks.
Certainly, few other Australian acts, whether their contemporaries or the generations following, are anywhere near this sort of territory. the command of the studio, the sounds, the chordings, voices and the lyrics and the whole character of the things they are creating.
