about

After George W.s disastrous presidency, it seems incredible that American conservatives have chosen to go even stupider with Trump. Here's a song we recorded back in the Bush era, that just got relevant again. (Observe happy young Rayguns hanging around outside Köpi, in the Berlin snow of 2006).

lyrics

DO YOU TIP YOUR HAT TO AN AMERICAN?

Do you tip your to an american?
- tip your to an american

When you get face to face with an american
Do you thank him for the rock and roll
Or do you ask him the reasons for a governor
who says "freedom" when he means "control"

Do you tip your to an american?
tip your to an american

When you share a steak with an american
He'll cut it quick and then eat with his fork
I've never been there but I've seen a lot of films and I
Know several restaurants in New York

Mark Chapman
Michael Jackson
John Walker
Dick Cheney's daughter
all the single mothers
and the Smothers brothers
Ralph Nader
or was it Wally Gator

If you paint the face of an american
You might want to make him look like a clown
But fool him once and it's shame on you my friend
...or is it the other way around?

Do you tip your to an american?
- tip your to an american
Do you tip your to an american
- TIP YOUR HAT TO AN AMERICAN

Live shows udvikler sig ofte til happenings, som fx dengang et hold kunstaktivister malede dem fra top til tå undervejs. Musikalsk står de med et ben i 60'ernes psykedelika, et ben i punk-/indie-rocken og pikken stukket dybt i en fristende chokoladedessert. Bon appétit! ... more
