Louis Lingg and the Bombs - Grindstone





  Louis Lingg And The Bombs have a new album out. The Paris band's 3rd full length is called Favela Ninja and vinyl versions will be available "sooner or later." Digitally you can find it name your price on Bandcamp  https://louislinggandthebombs.bandcamp.com/album/favela-ninja


The first single from the album can be found below. As with the previous couple of times the band has appeared on this blog (Destroy Civilisation & I Wish I Was Dead), they've taken a seemingly down beat subject and turned it into an upbeat song. I asked Vocalist Josh what the single is about and he replied... "I wrote the song after two of my friends died at work (I was a teacher and it's quite a stressful profession!). The lyrics are strongly influenced by the anarchist writer Bob Black's The Abolition Of Work. That was three years ago when we started working on the album, scraping a few hours of recording here and there and always perfecting the songs... I quit my job and now I'm a full time music producer so I suppose it's a happy ending!"

  Just one of the many pop punk molotovs from the album, this is Grindstone....


Intro 
On the way to work now 
I feel like a wanker 
Why did I even wake up? 
up up up up? 

Bus is full to bursting 
Legs are fucking hurting 
Why did I even wake up? 
up up up up? 

Verse 1 
Work is killing, work’s degrading 
There’s all of this stress 
Ju: No, (I’m) not going back there 
ar ax:whoa oh oh 

Creeping cretins, machine morons, 
Who the fuck ya talkin down to?

Chorus 
(Nose to the) grindstone

What you do degrades you, yeah yeah 

(Nose to the) grindstone

You know I don’t deserve 
All of this wo-o-o-o-o-ork 

Ju: 
Boss is tryin’ to kill me 
but no-one else can see it 
Why did I even wake up?

Put poison in his sandwich 
Deleted all the hard drives 
Things’re fin’lly lookin’ up 
up up up up! 

total stop/pause - we should try it! 

Verse 2 
the Real enemy,

Whoa oh oh

Break 
Rap: 

There’s no need to work now - ever! 
Why don’t we just play - together! 
If you say you're free - you lie! 
Bonehead bosses - deny! 

Jungle: 

Discipline, the inhuman hell hole 
The ultimate head fuck, modern control 
Demeaning system of domination 
Work makes a mockery - of freedom 

Chorus X2 - 
(Nose to the) grindstone 
Another fucking grindstone 
Yeah you are what you do 
What you do degrades you yeah yeah 

(Nose to the) grindstone

You know I don’t deserve 
All of this wo-o-o-o-o-ork
