about

Written around 2008/2009 whilst Roscoe (lead vocals and guitar) was in high school, South Africa's Alright (If You Like Vuvuzelas) is a play on the song "New York's Alright (If You Like Saxophones)" by the 80's hardcore punk band "Fear". It's lyrical adolescent angst and theme of alienation fuses with its troll-like humor to present what is probably the messiest collaboration of noise on this EP.

lyrics

South Africa is alright,
South Africa is alright,
South Africa is alright,
South Africa is alright if you like vuvuzelas!

PE is alright if you like wind and boredom,
PE is alright if you like snobs and fakes,
PE is alright if you like arty hippies,
PE is alright if you like kak Club Shakes.

South Africa is alright,
South Africa is alright,
South Africa is alright,
South Africa is alright if you like vuvuzelas!

Cape Towns alright if you like patriotic assholes,
Cape Towns alright if you like acid and trance,
Cape Towns alright if you're a fuckin yuppie,
Cape Towns alright if you're a Green Peace fart.

South Africa is alright,
South Africa is alright,
South Africa is alright,
South Africa is alright if you like vuvuzelas!

Joburgs alright if you're a stinky scumbag,
Joburgs alright if you like pollution and disease,
Joburgs alright if you like ignorant masses,
Joburgs alright if you like rape and STD's

South Africa is alright,
South Africa is alright,
South Africa is alright,
South Africa is alright if you like vuvuzelas!
