Sex Machine:The Flying Lizards

Artist: The Flying Lizards

Album: Top Ten

Appears On: I'm a Wound and a Sword, A Victim and an Executioner

Song Notes: The Flying Lizards have shown up on the first and third compilation (and they've also made an appearance on the Monday Mp3 postings (and, as such, Thirteen Ugly Children Roll Gutterballs!), and they were on the second compilation until the last minute. Like the track from the last one, this is from Top Ten and was one of the singles from that record. It was the first song from Top Ten I'd heard, and one of the ones I enjoyed playing for other people; it's probably the cleanest and best execution of the concept of the album; experimental, jagged and sparse while still being relatively accessible and, most of all, funny. I love the metallic clanging and the utterly emotionless rendition of the "Shall I take them to the bridge" conversation from the James Brown original. - Rev. Syung Myung Me
