The Cut-Ups "Hearts Kings Lies"

It's late at night in a livingroom somewhere in George Bush's America. You pour a big glass of bourbon. Leave the ice out, it will just get in the way. The first sip burns all the way down; a rich, caressing flame. "Hearts Kings Lies" by The Cut-Ups plays on the stereo. There are songs strummed on guitar, decorated lightly with some piano here, some drums there. The songs allude to heartaches hidden in city rooms, dramas played out in smoky bars, and the bigger problem of America today where the patriotic binary- you are either red or blue- is as strong as ever. If you have to live in a time when war is called peace and poverty is called prosperity, you need to find kindred spirits. The Cut-Ups follow the footsteps of literary beatniks old and new- Ed Sanders (Fugs), David Berman (Silver Jews) - writers who use rock music to get their words out to an audience stuck somewhere in modern America. -- leafy green
