Share ‘Don’t Say Sorry‘:
Love is a highway, but you’re not likely to find Terry there anymore.
He’s on the train. Terry saw the light, and he put on his sunhat.
‘If you’re carsick, get outta the car!’
There’s only room for one big pug in this doggy daycare.
Terry’s taken to the night.
Thank you nurse, I’ll see myself out.
LOOK! There he is, peeping through the cracks in your screen.
Nuanced. Mercurial. Free.
Blowing you a kiss.
Marcel Marceau, Shmarshel Shmarsheau!
But Terry…. How unforgettable.
What will you do when the cloud gives way?
When the map leads you to a pile of potatoes?
We wuz wrong.
Hit me with your algorithm stick!
Siri, is death an illusion?
Siri, am I locked in a prison of my own making?
Don’t pull that thread kiddo.
Siri’s gone. Talk about truth!
But when you’re ready for real answers…
Talk about TERRY.
Divide TERRY into four and you get Al Montfort (UV Race, Total Control, Dick Diver etc.), Amy Hill (Constant Mongrel, School Of Radiant Living), Xanthe Waite (Mick Harvey Band) and Zephyr Pavey (Eastlink, Total Control, Russell Street Bombings). ‘Terry HQ’ marks the band’s debut album, collecting together ten of the greatest misshapen glam pop tunes Melbourne, Australia has to offer.
Stereogum describes lead single ‘Don’t Say Sorry’ as “a nervy throwback to that late-’70s era when punk began to mutate in countless directions, matching a deadpan vocal with an incessant chord progression and piling on the sonic chaos. “Why would you say sorry for that?” they wonder aloud, and certainly there’s no need to apologize for keeping this strain of musical antagonism alive.”
Upset The Rhythm released the band’s debut 7” last year to much gleeful praise!
