Fresh Kick In The Ass: Big Mother Gig – “Obliterate”

Big Mother Gig

“Obliterate”

Someone said “Rock is dead”.  What crap.  They never heard Big Mother Gig.  Reforming after their break-up in the 90’s after the tragedy at Parkland, FL, BMG brings back that killer 90’s sound (think Dinosaur, Jr.) with the punk sensibility needed to fight back against the hate of the 2010’s.  I love this band:  their vocals, their rifts, their lyrics, their looks.  As the fight against mediocrity and stupidity continues, we need these guys more than ever.  Comprised of Richard Jankovich (vocals, guitar), Albert Kurniawan (drums), Micah Lopez (bass) and Mike Datz (guitar, vocals), they are willing and able to take music back.  Just read the lyrics to their new single.  Welcome back guys.  You were missed.

THEY’RE ALWAYS GRANTING WISHES
THEY’RE ALWAYS PLANTING KISSES ALL AROUND THE TOWN UNTIL WE
START BUILDING BRIDGES, CLIMBING UP A SPIRAL STAIR
AND LEAVING US IN STITCHES
WHEN WE’RE STILL STUCK IN INCHES

AND YOU THINK I’M DIM, JUST TAKE A LOOK
PRACTICALLY YOUR REFLECTION I AM

WE COME CRASHING THROUGH THE GATE
SO WE CAN OBLITERATE

…WE CAN….

THEY’RE ALWAYS PULLING PUNCHES
WE ALWAYS GO WITH OUR HUNCHES EVEN WHEN THEY’RE WRONG
UNTIL WE GROW FROM TENS TO HUNDREDS,
PICKING UP SPEED AS THEY BLOW RIGHT THROUGH THE BUDGETS
IT ALL SLIPS RIGHT THROUGH OUR CLUTCHES

MUCH TO YOUR CHAGRIN, YOU TAKE A LOOK
AND YOU WILL SEE THIS IS WEARING THIN

WE COME CRASHING THROUGH THE GATE
SO WE CAN OBLITERATE
I READ ALL ABOUT THE DEEP STATE AND I TOOK THE BAIT
WE CAN OBLITERATE

MY PHANTOM LIMB IS BUZZING
MY FRIENDS ALL THINK I’M BLUFFING AND I WASN’T SURE MYSELF UNTIL
THE COPS SHOWED UP BY THE DOZEN
FLASHING LIGHTS AND BATTERING RAMS COME ROARING
THROUGH THE DOOR, MY HEAD AND HEART LAID BARE UPON THE FLOOR

AND WHO WILL CONDEMN, YOU TAKE A LOOK
AND YOU WILL SEE HOW THIS CAME TO MAYHEM

WE COME CRASHING THROUGH THE GATE
SO WE CAN OBLITERATE
I READ ALL ABOUT THE DEEP STATE AND I TOOK THE BAIT
WE CAN OBLITERATE
