about

Back – despite popular demand – Slimey Things return with their final album ‘Goodbye Earth’.

After 4 years of silence, Sydney’s premier Sci-fi rock band deliver an album that embodies their fifteen year legacy as pioneers in Sydney’s experimental live music scene.

Their music, though largely uncategorizable, fuses elements of Frank Zappa, Futurama, Cardiacs and Meshuggah in a highly listenable (though potentially lethal) dose of progressive pseudo-pop.

Track Name: Radio Rigel 3
Have you heard the brand new word?
That far out radio station.
That space-age sound, it can be found
under ground, across the nation.

Don’t touch that dial, just tune in for a while.
Tune into your destiny.
Comin’ out to you and me.

They play all your favorite hits,
they’re playing all the greats.
The only radio station I know
heard across all time and space.

Don’t touch that dial, just tune in for a while.
Tune into your destiny.
Comin’ out to you and me.
Comin’ in from Rigel 3.
Track Name: Versus Mode
The enemy of my friend is the enemy of my enemy.
The enemy of my enemy is the friend of my enemy.
One up, two up, give up.
I will not be beaten.
Once they were allies, now nemesi.
Loyal to the end.

I challenge you, player two, to versus mode.

The enemy of my friend is the enemy of my enemy.
The enemy of my enemy is the friend of my enemy.
One up, two up, give up.
I will not be beaten.
Once they were allies, now nemesi.
Loyal to the end.

I challenge you, player two, to versus mode.

I challenge you, player two, to…
I challenge you to…versus mode.
Track Name: They Have Agents Everywhere
Do you ever, have you ever, felt like someone’s watching you?
And if you do, I hope that you cover your tracks and empty your cache too.
Or do you see conspiracies that you know you’re not meant to?
You’re on to them. They’re on to you. Who can you tell? What to do?
They think that you’re unaware. They’re everywhere.
Watching you. Hunting you. Stalking you.
You’re on to them. They’re on to you. What are you ever to do?

Keep looking over your shoulder, better beware.
Coz buddy they got agents everywhere.

Do you suspect? Or have you checked if you indeed are alone?
You feel their eyes. Ignore the lies of everybody who fears for your mind.
They think that you’re unaware. They’re everywhere.
Watching you. Hunting you. Stalking you.
You’re on to them. They’re on to you. What are you ever to do?

Keep looking over your shoulder, better beware.
Coz buddy they got agents everywhere.

Keep looking over your shoulder, better beware.
Coz buddy they got agents every-ever-lovin’-where.
Track Name: Butter
You look so good and you’re so good for me.
You’re a healthier alternative to margarine.
You get so runny when I cook with you, honey.
You’re my free-range, dairy queen.

Anyone but ‘er, but ‘er, anyone but ‘er, but ‘er…
just doesn’t split my seam.
Anyone but ‘er, but ‘er, anyone but ‘er, but ‘er…

I’ll never give you up for another.
I can’t believe you’re not butter.

You melt so well and honey, I can tell
that you’re lower in fat than any other gal.
You spread so easy but ya, ya ain’t so sleazy
that you’re gonna get all greasy and kiss and tell.

Anyone but ‘er, but ‘er, anyone but ‘er, but ‘er…
just doesn’t whip my cream.
Anyone but ‘er, but ‘er, anyone but ‘er, but ‘er…

I’ll never give you up for another.
I can’t believe you’re not butter.

I’ll never give you up for another.
I just can’t believe you’re not butter.

If you told me to jump off a bridge I would.

Track Name: Turbo-Lover
Some ladies like to call me “Lightnin’”
coz I like my lovin’ with speed.
So come over here and check this action.

(Turbo-Lover).

I’m comin’ and I won’t be late, I’ll be early.
But I must concede…

albeit prematurely.

Track Name: Funbot
Everyone, they want one.
Everyone, they need one.
So much fun.
Everyone loves Funbot.
How on earth
could you not?

He’s so fun, friend number one. He’s all mine, all of the time.
He’s so fun, friend number one. And now the fun’s only just begun.
He’s still under warranty. If he breaks call them, it’s free.
But that won’t happen to me. I takes real good care o’ my Funbot, see?

Funbot. Funbot. Funbot. Funbot.

Everyone, they want one.
Everyone, they need one.
So much fun.
Everyone loves Funbot.

He’s my friend, friend ‘til the end. He’s all mine, all of the time.
He’s so fun, friend number one.
He’s nuclear but don’t ya fear. Safety first. Make sure he works.
Don’t you freak if he springs a leak. Just take him to the service geek.

Funbot. Funbot. Funbot. Funbot.

There’s just one problem with my friend:
Sometime times he leaks uranium now and then.
It’s getting kinda problematic.
I’m losin’ hair and breakin’ bones but I’m not alone.
Track Name: Silly Little Existence
What a silly little world.

Do you ever start to wonder why the <bzzzt> you’re alive?
Always puttin’ up with some bullshit jive.
You’ll never get an answer so don’t look to the sky.
Everything you know is a lie.

You’re never gonna get what your heart desires.
You’ll probably get fricasseed in hell’s fires.
If you want some advice from the mouth of the wise…
never even bother to try.

And when I wake up
I gotta make up
some silly excuse to stay alive,
or even open my eyes.

Oh, what a cruel world it must be.
I don’t wanna go on,
but I couldn’t be bothered to die.

What a silly little life.
