Back in May, I lauded The Embarrassment Sex Drive 7inch as “one of the greatest art punk singles ever.” As always, I was right on the mark.
With that said, I was surprised by the response that 7inch received. Pleasantly surprised. So in honour of all the Embarrassment fans out there, I bring you the two outtakes from the Sex Drive recording session. These were on the Heyday comp on Bar None in the mid-nineties which is criminally out of print now.
I love the song “After The Disco”. It completely sums up my whiteboy American midwestern inability to go out disco dancing without being hyperconscious of my own ridiculousness. Fave line:
“Saw a movie the other night…A guy and a girl were in a fight
It was good, I saw it, he said …’You want I should fuck something?’”
Slays me every time I hear it.
