It's just a cigarette and it cannot be that bad Honey don't you love me and you know it makes me sad It's just a cigarette like you always use to do I was do from then I don't need them to be cool
It's just a cigarette and it hurts your pretty lungs Well it's only twice a week so there's not much other chance It's just a cigarette and soon be only ten Honey can you trust me when I want to stop I can
It's just a cigarette and it's just a Marlboro Light Maybe but it isn't worth that we fight It's just a cigarette that I got from Jamie Lee She's gonna get a smack and I'm gonna give you three
It's just a cigarette and I only did it once (It's just a cigarette and soon be only ten) It's just a cigarette and it's only twice a week (It will make you sick girl, there's not much other chance) It's just a cigarette and I'm sorry that I did (It's just a cigarette and we're sorry that we did) Honey can you trust me when I want to stop I can
The Television Personalities are an English band formed in 1977-1978 (?). Their first album was "And Don't the Kids Just Love It" released in 1981. This album is a mixture of new wave, post-punk and 60's pop. The songs, all written by Dan Treacy, are a loving ode to sixties pop culture. You just have to take a look to the titles to understand.
"This Angry Silence" – 2:39 (The Angry Silence is a 1960 British drama film) "The Glittering Prizes" – 3:01 (The Glittering Prizes is a British television drama) "World of Pauline Lewis" – 2:38 "A Family Affair" – 2:36 "Silly Girl" – 2:49 "Diary of a Young Man" – 3:59 (1964 TV drama) "Geoffrey Ingram" – 2:15 (Geoffrey Ingram was a British physicist, mathematician and expert on fluid dynamics and wave theory.)

Vivian Girls are an American band from Brooklyn formed in 2007. The members are: Cassie Ramone (guitar/vocals) , Kickball Katy Goodman (bass/drums/vocals), Ali Koehler (drummer). The sound is an incredible mix of noise-pop, punk rock and post grunge. Simple and gutsy music with a lot of class and melody.
The albums are:
Vivian girls (2008) Everything Goes Wrong (2009) Share the Joy (2011)
the cds have arrived. The first impression is: there aren't differences between the three albums, always the same sound. I knew that 'vivian girls' were a lo-fi band but i'd expected more sound's quality because sometime i had the idea there was too much noise caused by the guitar.
Afterall I like their songs and i like lo-fi of course
Chris Burden was born in Boston, Massachusetts in 1946. Soon thereafter, his family moved to California. He obtained a B.F.A at Pomona College, Claremont, California and later a M.F.A at the University of California in 1971. The early seventies, the period when Chris Burden produced his first mature works, was characterized by the idea that the truly important, viable art of the future would not be with objects, things that you could simply sell and hang on your wall. Art, instead, would address political, social, environmental and technological change. Earth, performance, body, video, computer, narrative and conceptual art became the new mediums. Burden, with his shockingly simple, unforgettable, "here and now" performances shook the conventional art world and took this new art form to its extreme.
The images of Burden that continue to resonate in public mind is of a young man who had himself shot (Shoot, 1971 At 7:45 p.m. I was shot in the left arm by a friend. The bullet was a copper jacket 22 long rifle. My friend was standing about fifteen feet away from me.) electrocuted, (Doorway to Heaven, 1973), impaled, cut (Back to You, 1974;Through the Night, 1973) , drowned (Velvet Water, 1974), kidnapped, locked up ( Five Day Locker Piece, 1971)…Over the past thirty years Burden has produced a multitude of assemblages, installations, kinetic and static sculptures and scientific models.
Chris Burden works and lives in California and has been represented by Gagosian Gallery since 1991. He has had major retrospectives at the Newport Harbor Art Museum, Newport Beach, California (1988) and MAK-Austrian Museum of Applied Arts, Vienna (1996). In 1999 Burden exhibited at the 48th Venice Biennale and the Tate Gallery in London. And for the summer of 2008 a 65 foot tall skyscraper made of Erecter set parts, titled What My Dad Gave Me, stood in front of Rockefeller Center, New York City. From gagosian.com
Blank Dogs is the brainchild of one prolific, mysterious Brooklynite named Mike Sniper. Under and under released in 2009 is the second album for the band.
There is no best track here, the tracks are very similar but personally i like these album because they have demonstrated how to make music with cheap and old instrument for an original low-fi,fuzzy and trashy sound.
