"Tuff Gnarl" as written by Kim Gordon, Lee M. Ranaldo, Steven Jay Shelley and Thurston Joseph Moore....
He's running on a tuff gnarl in his head
He's got a fatal erection home in bed
He's really smart and he's really fast
He's got a hard tit killer fuck in his past
Saints preserve us in hot young stuff
The saving grace is a sonic pig pile
Amazing grazing strange and raging
Flies are flaring through your brains
Spastic flailing literally raising my roof
An adrenal mental man-tool box explodes in music creates utopia
You gnarl out on my nerves you weird and crush the cranking raunch
Flesh dirt force field lost and found let's burn your broken heart
Set our sight on sights not yet set let's scorch your wavo wig
Let's poke your eyes out

    General Commentsince thurston said the album is mostly about philip k dick, this song seems to be about dick's amphetamine use while writing. "saints preserve us in hot young stuff" might refer to his religious experiences with schizophrenia and the period in his life when he lived with a bunch of hippies who were much younger than him. "let's burn your broken heart" could refer to dick's many failed marriages.

    General CommentHere is a song I would probably like better if it didn't include certain words ("fatal erection at home in bed"/"hard tit killer fuck in his past")

    Yes I know I am a prude/square/dork, and I'm fucking proud of it, okay? >:( Besides, I'm at an age where these things can seem scary. );

    Can't deny how good the music is though. ;)

    Anywhere I can find out more about this random album review fanzine thing? Wonder if it's true...
