Munchausen reviews:

VICE Magazine Animal Issue August 2005:
9 out of 10

"This is the ultimate Shoxton Eurotrash anthem: a scinitillating exchange between two useless art fags trying to outdo each other with absurd statements, set to Nitzer Ebbish new beat.

Priceless lines include: "I caught syphilis once in Top Shop", "I organised a radical picnic with Kathleen Hanna", "Ethiopians are like Germans dipped in chocolate", "My uncle designed the anal staircase", and the classic "I was cremated once". You're so speaking my language, boyz."

Skrufff Single Of the Week, August 5th 2005
"Munchausen syndrome is the term given to describe 'factitious disorders' the condition when a person feigns or induces an illness, and it's a perfect title for No Bra's call and response epic tale of Top Shop, syphilis, David Blaine and 14 inch cocks (not in that order).

Previously best known for their penchant of wandering round clubs in fake moustaches (Susanne) and his mum's plastic tablecloth (Dale), the duo appear to have ditched the shock frocks (Dale nowadays resembling a particularly vicious skinhead thug) though as Munchausen superbly demonstrates, both possess a keen intelligence and wit that should carry them far beyond their dancefloor roots.

Lyrically, the track is on a par with Avenue D's Do I Look Like a Slut, packed with innuendo, layers and acerbic perception, while musically, the Most in particular have transformed the original into a strikingly current, guitar-soaked rocker of a tune that's guaranteed to pack dance floors. Really? Really."


LYRICS

MINGER

HOW WOULD YOU FEEL
IF I TOOK YOUR MINGER AWAY FROM YOU?
IT WOULD BE SO EASY
OH OH OH OH OH OH OH

I COULD KILL HER IN A FRENZY
NO ONE WOULD EVER REMEMBER HER

HOW WOULD YOU FEEL
IF I TOOK YOUR LIFE AWAY FROM YOU?
IT WOULD BE SO EASY
OH OH OH OH OH OH OH

HOW WOULD YOU FEEL
IF I TOOK YOUR FLAT AWAY FROM YOU?
IT WOULD BE SO EASY
OH OH OH OH OH OH OH

YOU WOULD HAVE TO SLEEP
IN THE CORNER
ON A BED OF RUBBISH
NEXT TO THE CHURCH
AND WANDER THE STREETS ALONE AT NIGHT
COS YOU COULDN’T SLEEP IN THE COLD
YOU'D STAND OUTSIDE THE SUPERMARKET AT 6AM
BUYING A CAN OF FOSTERS
TRYING TO BLAG A FAG OFF SOMEONE
BUT NO ONE WOULD SPEAK TO YOU

REPEAT

NEW GIRLS

THE NEW GIRLS ARE IN TOWN
THEY ARRIVE AT THE STATION
TALL AND BEAUTIFUL
SHAVED NECKS LIKE THEIR FATHERS
THEY’RE EVERYBODY’S DREAM

THEY LINGER AT THE STATION
STANDING OUTSIDE TESCOS
THEY’RE THROWING BRICKS AT PIZZA HUT
THEN THEY HAVE SEX
IN FRONT OF THE FLOWER SHOP
TO THE BEAT
TO THE BEAT
MUCH TO THE DISMAY
OF THE LOCAL DISPLAY
PLAYING TO THE BEAT

AND LIKE ANDROMEDAS
THEY DISAPPEAR FROM THIS WORLD
LIKE THEY CAME
THIS DOESN’T HAPPEN EVERY DAY

GIRLS IN UNIFORMS
WAGING WARS AGAINST
A REPLICA OF A LADY
MEETS AT NIGHT AT LIVERPOOL STREET

GIRLS IN UNIFORM
THEYRE THROWING BRICKS AT PIZZA HUT
TO THE BEAT
TO THE BEAT
THEN THEY HAVE SEX
IN FRONT OF THE FLOWER SHOP
MUCH TO THE DISMAY
OF THE LOCAL DISPLAY
TO THE BEAT
TO THE BEAT
PLAYING TO THE BEAT

AND LIKE ANDROMEDAS
THEY DISAPPEAR FROM THIS WORLD
LIKE THEY CAME
THIS DOESN’T HAPPEN EVERY DAY

TALL AND BEAUTIFUL
SHAVED NECKS LIKE THEIR FATHERS
THEY ARRIVE AT THE STATION
THEY’RE EVERYBODY’S DREAM
WHERE DO THEY COME FROM
AND WHERE ARE THEY GOING?

THE NEW GIRLS ARE IN TOWN
THEY ARRIVE AT THE STATION
TALL AND BEAUTIFUL
SHAVED NECKS LIKE THEIR FATHERS
THERY’RE EVERY WOMAN’S DREAM
THIS DOESN’T HAPPEN EVERY DAY

DATE WITH THE DEVIL

ON A DATE WITH THE DEVIL
THE DEVIL ASKED ME
SING ME ONE OF YOUR SONGS
I SAID WELL THEY'RE NOT REALLY SONGS
MORE LIKE SHOUTING
THE DEVIL SAID
NEVER MIND
ILL FUCK YOU ANYWAY
DID YOU GO TO DRAMA SCHOOL?
WELL SO DID I
IT WAS REALLY BAD
I JUST DIDN’T KNOW HOW TO PLAY WOMEN
OH I JUST DIDN’T KNOW HOW TO PLAY ANY WOMEN
IT WAS A MATCH MADE IN HELL!!!

ON A DATE WITH THE DEVIL
THE DEVIL SAID
I CAN’T PLAY CHORDS
AND I DON’T BUY RECORDS
IT GOES AGAINST MY PRINCIPLES
BUT I’VE BECOME A FAN OF YOUR BAND
I’VE DOWNLOADED 10 SONGS OFF THE INTERNET
AND I SAID
OH REALLY IS THAT SO
I’VE HAD 9 THOUGHTS ABOUT TEMPTATION
NO REALLY I’M JUST TALKING
LET’S FIND A PROSTITUTE

AND THE DEVIL SAID
I’M TEMPTED TO SAY
IM NOT CUT OUT FOR SUCH THINGS
I LIKE TEMPTING PEOPLE
IT MAKES ME FEEL IMPORTANT
IT MAKES ME FEEL LIKE SOMETHING TO DO
I SAID
I UNDERSTAND YOUR AMBITION
IT’S BETTER THAN DATING A RICH PERSON
WITH LOTS OF MONEY
WHO GIVES YOU FREE COKE
AND YOU DON’T EVEN FANCY ME

THE DEVIL SAID
I DON’T KNOW
IVE LOST MY ABILITY TO JUDGE
I BELIEVE IN ANYTHING NOWADAYS
AND I THOUGHT
HE’S PROBABLY RIGHT
HOW EASILY DO I FALL FOR HIM
HOW EASILY DO I FALL FOR SOMEONE LIKE THE DEVIL
SEE HOW LONG HE CAN HOLD MY INTEREST
IT WAS A MATCH MADE IN HELL!!

MORE EVIL THAN THE DEVIL
HE ENDED UP IN HELL
HE COULD ONLY EVER USE PEOPLE
COS ALL HE CARED ABOUT WAS HIMSELF
MORE EVIL THAN THE DEVIL
HE ENDED UP IN JAIL
HE COULD ONLY EVER USE PEOPLE
COS ALL HE CARED ABOUT WAS HIMSELF

ON A DATE WITH THE DEVIL
THE DEVIL SAID
WHEN I WAS YOUNGER
I WAS SO DESPERATE
TO FALL IN LOVE
THAT EVERY TIME I EVER MET SOMEONE
I WAS SO NERVOUS
I COULDN’T SAY ANYTHING
SO I CHANGED MY MIND
AND DECIDED TO BECOME EVIL
AND BECOME THE DEVIL
AND TEMPT OTHER MEN INTO BEING EVIL
AND BEING THE DEVIL
AND TEMPT OTHER WOMEN INTO BEING EVIL
AND BEING THE DEVIL
AND I SAID
IF YOU’RE NOT NERVOUS
IT’S BORING

MORE EVIL THAN THE DEVIL
HE ENDED UP IN HELL
HE COULD ONLY EVER USE PEOPLE
COS ALL HE CARED ABOUT WAS HIMSELF
MORE EVIL THAN THE DEVIL
HE ENDED UP IN JAIL
HE COULD ONLY EVER USE PEOPLE
COS ALL HE CARED ABOUT WAS HIMSELF

DO THE DOG

WHY CAN’T YOU MAKE AN EXCEPTION BABY
PUT A DOG OUT OF ITS MISERY
FOR 2 YEARS
I’VE BEEN FOLLOWING YOU AROUND
LIKE A DOG
WAGGING MY TAIL
LIKE A DOG
GOING WOOF
AND YOU JUST SAY NO
YOU ALWAYS SAY NO

WHY DON’T YOU MAKE AN EXCEPTION BABY
PUT ME OUT OF MY MISERY
ALL I WANNA DO IS WATCH TV
AND SQUEEZE SAUSAGES

WHEN IM BORED
I NEED SOME ACTION
WHEN IM BORED
I NEED SATISFACTION
WHEN IM BORED I DO COCAINE OFF SOMEONES DICK
I DON’T CARE THAT HE’S THICK
WHEN IM BORED AND I CANNOT FROTTAGE YOU
WHY CANT I FROTTAGE YOU
FOR SOME REASON I CANNOT FROTTAGE YOU
WHEN IM BORED

WHY CAN’T YOU MAKE AN EXCEPTION BABY
PUT A DOG OUT OF ITS MISERY
FOR 2 YEARS
I’VE BEEN FOLLOWING YOU AROUND
LIKE A DOG
WAGGING MY TAIL
LIKE A DOG
GOING WOOF
AND YOU JUST SAY NO
YOU ALWAYS SAY NO

WHY DON’T YOU MAKE AN EXCEPTION BABY
PUT ME OUT OF MY MISERY
ALL I WANNA DO IS WATCH TV
AND SQUEEZE SAUSAGES

WHEN I’M BORED
I DO COCAINE OFF SOMEONE ELSE’S DICK
I DON'T CARE THAT HE'S THICK
YOU SEE ME PANIC
YOU SEE ME DESPERATE
YOU SEE ME TOO SCARED TO TALK
BUT YOU ACT COLD
YOU ACT SO COLD
ARE YOU COLD
OR ARE YOU EVIL
OR DO YOU JUST NOT UNDERSTAND
I CAN’T STAND IT ANY MORE
IS THERE NOTHING I CAN DO
IS THERE NOTHING I CAN SAY
IS THERE NO ONE I CAN PRETEND TO BE
SO YOU WILL FALL FOR ME
