millionreasons: (marnie)
It's weird how McCarthy (and Stereolab) wrote pertinent, left wing, poetic lyrics but you can never ruddy hear them. They're always too low down in the mix. This song is a somewhat overly-literal take on the Bible, pointing out how violent the stories in the testaments are; the point being that the tabloids, Mary Whitehouse (still going in 1988) and the moral "majority" wanted various TV programmes, films and video games banned, but the Bible is chock full o' gory tales. It's a good job that despite the didactic tone this is a very lively tune: sweet vox, hyperactive drums, jangle to the max.
