Do not clench. It only makes it worse.

Fantastic.  Serbian Impenetrable String Band influenced folkies Cinc now have a decent website.  Flask from their first album contains the following:


For that you must have
Lithium, natrium, rubidium,
Caesium and francium
Or at least magnesium, calcium,
Strontium, barium and radium
And in that moment
You will see the reaction
What it really looks like
You will hear on the radio

Where the hell is my flask?



I recommend the "hear it".

Some vague chemicals in this:

Quote
The tequila sun's rising
And the Harvey's Bristol moon is sinking
Put the Binatone on snooze
Open up some Special Brews
And start drinking

To the biggest mess in town
Then put on your dressing gown
Screw your head on upside down
Drink yourself into the ground

The bottles by the sink
They're the softest fucking drinks on the market
Yes sir, the Thunderbirds have gone
The wagon's rolling on
And I'm on it
And there's no such thing as Dr. Seuss
Vodka and tomato juice
Disneyland or dipsomania
Pick a flavour

CHORUS

Anytime, anyplace, anywhere
There's a wonderful world you can share

Try agrophobic, schizophrenic,
Paranoid attacks of panic
Epileptic fits of laughter
Twenty five million mornings after
And there's no such thing as Dr. Seuss
Vodka and tomato juice
Disneyland or dipsomania
Name your poison
Pick a flavour

Moonshine, firewater, Captain Morgan, Johnnie Walker,
Southern Comfort, mother's ruin,
Happy hours of homeless brewing
Galloway's sore throat expectorant,
After-shave and disinfectant,
Parazone and Fairy Liquid
If it's in a glass you'll drink it
Never tell me the odds.

Manic Street Preachers give us <a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/mluy4U-vybM&rel=1" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/v/mluy4U-vybM&rel=1</a> and <a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/4k-frwDiQeA&rel=1" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/v/4k-frwDiQeA&rel=1</a>.

Continuing the elements theme, Silver and Gold by Country Joe and the Fish.  I can't find it, so here's Pat's Song instead:
