Hongkongaton

Well, folks, revel in the semi-glory of the only true blue original song to come out of the Dirty Harry EP. It begins with some slurping/sucking/smacking noises, courtesy of Jamie Hewlett. Why, you ask? Because Jamie Hewlett is all about the cock, obviously! In style, Hongkongaton has nothing in common with the other song that came from its session, Hong Kong. It features a boom-shuck polka riff on the piano, some neat, distorted, whispery vocals from Damon, and dub horns and bass. Itís reggae at the core, and a fine track for chilling out to. Itís interesting that Damon only really bothered to write one lyric for the song, but Danger Mouseís production keeps things pretty fresh and interesting throughout. Itís an easily digested mixture of Don Quixote psychedelica, Space Monkey dub, and ambient noise. It may not pack much of a punch, and as a B-side, I wouldnít call it incredibly memorable. But it goes on my iTunes, and there it will stay. Sure thing. - Wazawaii

Lyrics:

Just falling out not making much of anything at all
All you could hide from what's there in the past of it

Just falling out not making much of anything at all
All you could hide from what's there in the past of it

Just falling out
All you can hide

All you can hide...

Just falling out
All you can hide

Hongkongaton!

All you can hide...

Just falling out (much of anything at all)
All you can hide (from what's there in the past of it)

Just falling out (much of anything at all)
All you can hide (from what's there in the past of it)

Just falling out (much of anything at all)
All you can hide (from what's there in the past of it)

(much of anything at all)
All you can hide (from what's there in the past of it)
