Salford , The Crescent, Friday 3rd July, Flies on you, The Arndales, The hamsters

Well, what have we here? A video for a new track by FLIES ON YOU? To whet your appetite for their forthcoming Ell-Pee?

“Katie Hopkins In A Human Form” is the kind of insistent, propulsive and slightly quirky track the Buzzcocks would have kept as an album-only novelty.

The ‘cocks probably wouldn’t have had Numanoid synth sounds weaving in and out of theirs, mind you. And the vocals here are those of a dour Yorkshireman grumbling about summat and nowt. Not Shelleyesque at all…..And the video has dancing aliens.

Otherwise it’s a bit like the Buzzcocks. Or not. Maybe?

“We are not half-wits, because you think we fail to freshen our armpits”, he intones grumpily, (secretly pleased with the “half-wits/armpits” rhyme.) It’s an entertaining gripe about the Daily Mail and its aggressive condescension towards the plebs.

Katie Hopkins might seem like an easy target, but to be honest, she’s pretty reckless when it comes to sticking the boot in; it’s about time she got some back. The resistance has to start somewhere.

Flies On You’s second album “Etcetera” is released October 2014.

Featuring “Katie Hopkins In A Human Form” and 14 more thrumming tracks!

“Josephine”, revisited. As you can see, she’s had a makeover. Isn’t she gorgeous?

Josephine the remix ep

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In her original incarnation, “Josephine” was already as catchy as cold-sores; Hummable tune, attention-grabbing lyric, memorable chorus, keening guitars and what have you.

But she wants to win X Factor, be the new Gaga, and wasn’t sure if she’s pretty enough to impress the judges. So we gave her a makeover, and she scrubbed up nicely.

But that wasn’t enough. Cosmetic surgery it is then.

Flies On You invited the public at large to take up their scalpels, razors, scissors and eyeliner, to transform this “girl next door” into Pop’s Wet Dream.
And what a response!

You can watch the video to Josephine here

Josephine ( single edit ) – Flies on you

And they’re all absolutely FREE
As if this weren’t exciting enough, you can also download the Josephine video, free of charge.

Flies On You won’t be satisfied until you hear people singing “Josephine” on the bus. Until we’re all sick to the back teeth of hearing the damned thing.
Possible Christmas Number 1?

We should have charged a quid, at least.

Flies On You say “Attention, Mixmasters!”

Flies On You say “Attention, Mixmasters!”
6Music’s Tom Robinson suggested a great idea to us.  Make the stems to our track “Josephine”  available to home re-mixers to create their own interpretations. YES!

We want to release a free single  with diverse takes on our track “Josephine”. We have 5 individual stems and you take, add, rearrange, destroy, make up new drum patterns, whatever you like, and we will get everyone to listen and debate which would result in THE BEST free 4 track single. No money involved, just lots of people listening, (including Mr Robinson) and free publicity.

Flies love working with a blank canvas and we encourage everyone to experiment and have fun nothing is off limits

So go HERE to download all the stems:

Then email your finished version to andy@fliesonyou.co.uk
And let’s see what comes back!

Cheers
Flies on you:-)

We have filmed the gig and that will be online soon so keep an eye out, might be worth subscribing to our you tube channel as that’s where we will be putting everything.

It was a great debut for us and it couldnt have gone any better. We will let you know when the gig is online :-)
