P.S. Someone told me there is a fairly popular network television show with the same name as this song, while the title does reflect football, I didn't know of the show at the time and have still never seen it, unless its that gambling one with Matthew McConaughey and Al Pacino? Cause I saw that shit.

Recorded Live, Digitally last year at a secret 'House Party'

Opting to go against the norm for playing at a party, The Lions set up the recording gear and the high powered massively overloaded and dangerous multi-piece sound system. They mingled about for a few and then they offered guests this six minute sad electro lament at a huge volume. The partygoers seemed both unfazed and uncaring.

THE LIONS (of judah)

We at Curse just wanted you to know...

If you haven't heard 'The Lions (of judah)' yet - you can file the records they make under the same banner as cats like Kraftwerk, Neu!, Mogwai, Steinski, Lee Scratch Perry, John Barry, The Bomb Squad, Spacemen 3, The Future Sound Of London, etc... Maybe like shoegaze hip hop rock dance hardcore disco punk rock jamtronica trancefusion. Maybe its like Philip Glass having a head injury jamming with MARRS and going sludge metal. We think it is kinda like a silent movie without any pictures, its party music.


Curse Industries
presents a review of...
WFMU Switched On Hip,
Moog Music Sampler

My favorites so far...

The Two Johnny Cash songs are tops -
Folsom Prison Blues by Gil Trythall and
I Walk the Line by Rick Powell

Spanish Flea by Sid Bass, I call this song the theme to 'The Dating Game' and it is of course super hot, I have a real love for gameshow music and this is of that wonderful genre.

Hair by Mort Garson is Bladerunner fresh and timeless.

Polk Salad Annie by Gil Trythall (again) is like some atari shit you never heard before.

Moogie Boogie by The Zeet Band (great name) sounds like chase music from Miami Vice, i can't seeing wanting to hear the whole song again, but i would drop a few seconds of it at a party just to release the flavor.

Porcupine Pie by Hugo Montenegro is a weird 8-bit atari seventies porno soundtrack, it's like a cheesy hot jazz combo playing with a shit hot moog player who has the most awesome like 8-bit atari tones and sounds and its this totally stereotypical porno movie sounding jam, five stars

Whats New Pussycat by Wendy (Walter) Carlos, its a carnival jam cover version that is really Wendy Carlos, Its like an outtake from A Clockwork Orange that didn't make it into the film. I am not much for carnival music but I do like the super freakout at the end, Scary.

If you enjoyed those jams I recommend checking out
One Note Samba. Its the spazrock of Switched On Moog songs.
