about

...and the Native Hipsters UK

and the Native Hipsters have been recording and releasing music since long time.

What started out as a live band has evolved into an ongoing recording project. The nucleus of the work is Blatt’s vocals. Then I weave, music noise and sound around her. I get the material to do this from as many different sources as possible. I’m always interested in people sending me stuff to work with ... more

Track Name: FRIENDS OF THE EARTH
Friends of the Earth

You saw me today and lets be frank
I was down at the bottle bank - With Hank
I put in my glass - and Hank made a pass

I won’t deny that it don’t mean a thing
Cos I was out recycling - With Jim
I kissed him again - and again and again and again

You were keen to make romantic plans
But I was happy just crushing cans - with Hans
He’s from Germany - and he showed me his wormery

I hang around with loads of new men
Who are non sexist and are into Zen
you tried to show me what your love was worth
But I ran away… - With the Friends of the Earth

You wanted to go out on a date
But I’d already gone out to demonstrate - With Jake
He was on a mission – to ban nuclear fission

you asked me out for a candlelit meal
I said no thanks cos I don’t eat veal - With Neal
He runs a crèche - and he was getting fresh

I don’t want a relationship with you
So I blew you out for a lentil stew - With Lou
Yeah I can be a vegan - If he can

Chorus

You sat at home waiting for my call
But I was out at the green peace stall - With Saul
He had some old chat up line - about showing me his wind turbine

But I guess you realised it was over
The day you caught me buying Ecover - With Rover
Cos Rovers a Dog - Yes, I prefer that dog to you

Cos Rovers the dog that I set free
The night I raided the laboratory - With Lee
Cos Lee’s a cool cat - He even wears a fake fur leopard skin pill box hat
Track Name: TRAFFIC SUCKING ROBOTS
Traffic Sucking Robots

A zombie hides a bowling ball deep in the woods
The ocean makes a deal with a rattlesnake
One robot wrote a book in a coffee break
Here come the traffic sucking robots

A turkey goes running on a soft cheese wheel
A blood clot sells a building to a tub of margarine
One robot wrote a book in a submarine
Here come the traffic sucking robots

The chain saw learns to dance the blind Rumba
A salad dressing lives with a dirty string vest
One robot wrote a book in a vulture’s nest
Here come the traffic sucking robots

The educated asteroid sings out of tune
The power drill is gentle, but eats the giraffe
One robot wrote a book in a Turkish bath
Here come the traffic sucking robots
Track Name: LONG DISTANCE RUNNING
...there goes the bell and the front four move away
So the crowd start to open their mouths
And the blond German stops mum ironing
This is long distance running...
Track Name: I CAN CHANGE MY MIND
I’m thinking No, maybe, well ok
I’m thinking Yes, maybe, no way

Guess you wonder what I’m thinking
So do I, So do I, I wonder that about you
Guess you wonder what I’m gonna say
So do I, So do I, I wonder that about you
Guess you wonder why we are together
So do I, So do I, but then I start to think your great
Guess you sometimes wish we never met
So do I, So do I, but then I start to think I love you
Track Name: A DRINK WITH THE GIRLS
I spose he thinks he’s hot stuff dressed like that
...I’ve seen hotter salami in the fridge
Track Name: CROSSOVER
Crossover

Crossing the Sahara desert with a pack of wolves
I’m a silly Billy - I should have known they’d eat me up

Swimming the north Atlantic with school of sharks
I’m a silly Billy - I should have known they’d eat me up

Sugar, bother - What’ll I do ?
Put the sharks on land and drown the wolves


Sledging across the Arctic with a Polar bear
I’m a silly Billy - I should have known he’d break my back

Sweating in the tropical heat with a 10 foot Python
I’m a silly Billy - I should have known he’d break my back

Sugar, bother - What’ll I do?
Put the snake on ice and boil the bear
Track Name: GOODBYE TO EVERYTHING
Goodbye to Everything

Goodbye to the Tiger, the Tortoise and the Whale
Goodbye to the Buffalo, the slug and the cheeky little snail

We should have planned it, we should have banned it
Now we’ve messed up the planet, its too messed up to inhabit

Goodbye to the Elephant and the Grisly Bear
Hallo to bleeding gums and loosing all your hair

Goodbye to mahogany and all those hardwood trees
They made good doors but now they’ve gone, along with all the bees

Goodbye to the motor car, this time we’ve gone too far
There’s no Brent Crude left in the jar – we couldn’t stem the flow
Now its spread like black jam, over the beaches of Mexico

Goodbye to everything we use to hold so dear
We used to act so clever, now everything is clear

We use to gaze up at beautiful sunny skies
That was before the retinas Were burnt out of our eyes

We used to watch Dolphins cavorting in the seas
That was before we ate them all in tuna fish sandwiches

We use to face the future without a care
Now we’ve got to face the future without any air
