I like the new clips. Although it's hard to judge songs when we've only heard parts of them. There does seem to be a fair few slower tracks. The guitar tone is good and the playing is very good. I was hoping for more exciting drumming given the lineage of the new drummer, my favourite drumming to date has been Emily's. The lyrics are just ok IMO, but are very well executed. I like the gang shouts. Overall it sounds good to me, except for Happiness (I think) which sounds like something from an American Pie OST.

I'd agree about the gang vocals and backing harmonies. They give the song so much more energy when executed properly, and seem to be executed very well from the samples we've heard.

I suspect it may be about a man with only one teste... but we'll have to wait until the full song and lyrics come out. I can hardly make out any lyrics in the clip.

Uniball
Rolling away
Left you alone
Alone, you will stay
Uniball
Rolling again
So dirty
The campaign of one?

The odds are stacked against him
Could have surrendered meekly
???

That's all I got.

Absolutely. I personally feel she was their most proficient drummer thus far.

That's the only definition I found but I decided that it probably isn't the meant meaning because of the "uniball rolling away" but maybe I am just picturing the "ball" and the "rolling" too literally. I don't know. It's hard to say, TD cover kind of "unusual" themes from time to time in their songs.

Actually, I have a very hazy feeling that maybe I have heard about it.

I wasn't a Darkness fan back then - but I do remember reading about it during the 2012 era. And I know it was mentioned during the Q&A session that I was at during the last US tour.

I found this:

Being alive. Most people who have lived like I have and also battled cancer are dead.

If it's about that, it's quite funny - you have to admire that they can laugh at themselves... the songs like "She Just A Girl Eddie" about Ed's girl troubles, and the story-telling in songs like "Second Fiddle" are very entertaining.

A very taboo subject, like pubic lice (Growing on Me), masturbation (Holding My Own)...

Didn't Justin claim Growing on Me wasn't about crabs at one point? Seems hard to believe though...

For the record guys...'Growing On Me' is about genital warts...not crabs.
i.e. "Can't get you off my head" etc. Lice don't 'grow' on you as such anyway do they? Clearly written in a very clever way to also suggest a relationship with a woman, but that's what's clever about those lyrics. Justin is the master of the double meaning in his song writing.

He did say some time back in one interview that it wasn't about pubic lice, when the same old question kept coming up about the meaning of the song, but then again, a) he was technically right saying that as it isn't about lice as explained above, and b) he was throwing a slight curveball out to the interviewer as he often likes to do. I saw many more interviews back in the early days that confirmed it was about genital warts.

Now, if we're talking taboo subjects from old songs, let me throw in 'Wanker' about Justin planning a threesome for ages, only to completely lose his bottle and back out at the very last minute. ;)

You can't beat How Dare You Call This Love? for taboo songs; it's about an underage boy! :lol: It took a long time for me to catch the line "And I'm just too fond of you, boy, to let the laws of nature intervene". All the lyrics out there get it wrong, but you can hear it clearly in a live radio performance.

Yes, I agree. GOM was about genital warts.
