Tell you what: bassist and vocalist Michael M is always good for a quote – let’s get him to do the talking.
“I was reading this thing that I might’ve just imagined about scientists constructing sperm from human bone marrow that would, ultimately, render the male genitalia completely useless as a reproductive organ. I think it might’ve been in an issue of TV Quick. So we wrote the song about how redundant the male would become, unable to compete with artificial counterparts, reducing the flesh penis to a cozy piece of old world technology like a Nokia from the 90s, but veiny. It’s not so much a warning as an undermining of patriarchal ideas, and also we released it on 7″ and that’s a wee laugh.”
That’s all you need to know!
(Oh! And you can buy a copy of the 7″ here.)
(At least it’s not a floppy disc – that’s my wee laugh!)
