BUZZCOCKS : FAST CARS [ANOTHER MUSIC IN A DIFFERENT KITCHEN, 1978]

Ένας πανκ ύμνος από τους Buzzcocks του Pete Shelley, late ’70s.
A punk anthem from
Pete Shelley’s Buzzcocks, late ’70s.

They’re nice and precise, each one begins and ends
They may win you admirers, but they’ll never earn you friends
Fast cars, fast cars
Fast cars, I hate fast cars
They’re so depressing going around and around
Ooh, they make me dizzy, oh fast cars they run me down
Fast cars, fast cars,
Fast cars, I hate fast cars
Sooner or later, you’re gonna listen to Ralph Nader
I don’t wanna cause a fuss, but fast cars are so dangerous
Fast cars, fast cars
Fast cars, I hate fast cars, fast cars
Fast cars, fast cars
I hate fast cars

    That song put a buzz in the old cock. I love fast cars and we have a couple of them. Laurie’s car does 0 to 100 kph in 5 seconds. My car does it in 6 seconds. If you remember “Unsafe at Any Speed” by old Ralphie, I drove an old Chevy Corvair in the 70s with that unstable swing-axle suspension. Sorry to say I never rolled it, but I did turnover our 3 wheeled Cushman scooters many times. Those Cushmans were truly unsafe at any speed. Ralph should have picked on Cushman. Ralph was and is full of shit as is Rachel Carson, Paul Ehrlich, Richard Dawkins, Anthony Fauci, and all the other doomsayers who get their cocks buzzing, and get much more attention than they deserve.

      I think that, despite its lyrics, this song is the absolute car race anthem!
      Never had a car fast like yours, but I always thought that race driver could very well be my occupation …in another life.

        I’ve never raced cars, but I did a lot of motorcycle racing in my teens.
