Snuck 03:22
Itchy itchy itchy itchy itchy itchy fore head Tiny tiny tiny tiny tiny tiny tooth brush Birder birder birder birder birder birder catacomb Nicer nicer nicer nicer nicer nicer lilly ad Hoper hoper hoper hoper hoper hoper heart break Naked naked naked naked naked naked soup bowl Doner doner doner doner doner doner horse squats Itchy itchy itchy itchy itchy itchy fore head* Wear this hat and you will fly 1000 miles an hour Wear this tie and you will spin, end feeling not so dour I know these are such simple things and hardly magic carpet You'll find them in the discount bin at your local Target. * transcribed sleep talk, and the words might be wrong
Lo Real 04:03
Up in the sky here comes the hand, the hand that writes for you, that writes for me. And what the hand is writing: "Lo Real". And you can take that how you like. I take that as the cars come crashing down, crashing down for Lo Real. Oh sail the sanguine seas from end to end, the world is red again, for Lo Real. And you can take that how you like. Up in the clouds, the mushroom clouds, the hand that writes is writing Lo Real.
Three Doors 03:42
Here's a party that ended early three doors down from the rest of life. I felt a little tickle that came from the heart I felt a little tickle that told me goodnight. I'll never never tread these shores again the call that comes, it comes tonight. Here's a baby that parted early three doors down from the rest of life. Here's a story that's ending early... By their teeth and toes I know their angle Strikes a higher pose up in the firmament Play their trumpets so they call me over
It comes from the breeze that flows from her hills It comes from the seas that flow in her hills It's taking it outwards your hair in reverse Nicer and nicer and finer and finer And parts of the girl rotating in sympathy. Parts of the girl: and inside the girl it's all that you wanted something in fibreglass it's cold to the touch sequins unstable but it ekes out a living it's black and it's tan the birthplace is broken and inside the girl an image in thirds by half It comes from the breeze that flows from her hills It comes from the seas rotating in sympathy Nicer and nicer and finer and finer.
Do you know the way to San Jose? People waiting there wait for my rain. Need a new head? Or several new arms? Here comes my rain to add to your charms. Would you like to swing on a star? Be a mobile phone or a car? Or would you rather be a mule? Do you know the way to London town? Got a new theory coming on down. Taking the menu, tear it in half. Feet on the top and your teeth in your arse.
Death Tickle 04:14
He is come to save us. Bring your head down, close your eyes. Ceasing breathing. Arms and legs relaxed, shaped for journey. Now you see the brightness, flowing under worthy pathways. Glad to see you join us. Join the chorus, it's forever. It's forever.
It's a marvel, shiny marvel Take me out and show me all the sights, the pretty sights Sights are coming Teeth are coming Teeth rain down and it's a marvel Count my blessings, many blessings Break my arm in fifty places Break my arm in many places People coming, people going It's not slowing Take my hand and we'll go shopping We will find it, surely find it on the tables It's a marvel shiny marvel Take me there and leave me I will never need it Never need you Never come back It's a marvel. Again and again with the chemical friends Again and again with the television. They're taking out the surfing bird Satellites are bright tonight Fixing in a new flashback Bringing on a new wipe out.


While the Op series continued to serve as a musical periodical - momentary and under constant replacement, it had been a long time since a 'real' Severed Heads album. Haul Ass was released in 1998, and Gail came eight years later.

The distinction may seem unclear. Every Op album was created like a magazine, with care but quickly. If something isn't perfect then it's permitted and can be repaired some time later. Under Gail Succubus was a far more reflective process over some years and so has more density in common with Haul Ass then the generally cheery Op titles. It might be that this slow and steady recording is a relic, but the different processes offer different styles and that alone makes it worthwhile.
