"Slap Dash For No Cash" as written by and Michael Breyer Eddie Argos....
Slap dash for no cash
Those are the records I like
Slap dash for no cash
When something doesn't sound quite right

Why isn't everyone trying to sound like U2?
It's not a very cool thing to do
Why would you want to sound like U2?
Just press record and play it straight through
They call it lo-fi, if you say so
Cool your warm jets, Brian Eno

Slap dash for no cash
Those are the records I like
Slap dash for no cash
When something doesn't sound quite right

Slap dash for no cash
Those are the records I like
Slap dash for no cash
When something doesn't sound quite right

Slap dash for no cash
Slap dash for no cash
Slap dash for no cash
Slap dash for no cash

Slap dash for no cash
Slap dash for no cash
Slap dash for no cash
Slap dash for no cash

I love the sound of background noise
I wanna hear the crack in the singer's voice
Fingers moving on the fret board
Every time he plays a new chord
I hear his friends hanging around
I hear him play an instrument he just found
I hear a low buzzing sound
I hear his parents hanging around
I hear his parents saying "turn it down"
I hear his parents saying "turn it down"
I hear his parents saying "turn it down!"

Cool your warm jets, Brian Eno

Slap dash for no cash
Those are the records I like
Slap dash for no cash
When something doesn't sound quite right

Slap dash for no cash
Those are the records I like
Slap dash for no cash
When something doesn't sound quite right

Slap dash for no cash
Those are the records I buy

    Heheh. Brilliant, especially with the timing, just after U2's latest self-parody.

    General CommentArgos said, and the lyrics support it, that it's about his favorite band, The Mountain Goats. Though I assume it's focused on Darnielle's Lo-Fi stuff. Meaning everything before Tallahassee. Later albums are pretty good though. I love everything he's written.
