Getafix the Druid

from Want, For Nothing by Danger Grove

/
  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Thick, rich, and wide grooves that harbour bass that pounds and rhymes that do a sad, but weird though?

    Meghan's glorious artwork is big and huge and bold, like how it was meant to be seen. It almost glows in your hand, like rapidly cooling embers as the deepest darkness of the wood encroaches. The labels on the vinyl have their own special image that you can't even see on the internet yet.

    To the untrained eye, the vinyl itself may appear black. It is not only black; it is dark. It is so very, very dark.

    If you buy two copies you can juggle them. Some of these lines would be really mean to use in a DMC or ITF routine, so that's fun! We even made sure not to have it pressed on gross, lazy 180g vinyl which is a conspiracy by whoever sets shipping prices. We're onto you!

  • Cassette + Digital Album

    I don't think Lizard was even born when tapes were cool.

    I'm not sure any of us were born, at all.

    This casette is the colour of night, except the animals are the colours of animals. It has a bonus track that's not available on streaming sites or CD and it has that "cassette tape" sound you love.

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    I mean the cover is beautiful; the disc itself is printed with a gorgeous special picture of even more animals. The text is big enough to read easily unless you have useless bear eyes like Jesse, and you can play it in a car from ten years ago. It'll probably thump, too.

    Yeah actually I'm not sure why I was so dismissive at first. This disc is, if nothing else, pretty compact. You could probably carry twenty or thirty of them around with you and not even feel tired. Wanna try? Pony up.

about

ginzu wrote this verse in 2012 for the original version of Obélix, which is as yet unreleased. He stopped liking it for a while and yanked it from the original, then came around and agreed with us again that it was good in 2017 when it was too late to return it to that version of the song. So Lizard made a whole new home for it on this project, because there is a lot more to say about alcohol that Nicolas and Jesse cannot speak to.

lyrics

[Lizard]
Don't ask me why I I don't
Why I don't, Why I I don't
Drink that Devil Alcohol
Please
It's nothing personal
You're not my shrink
It's something personal
What the fuck you think?

[ginzuintriplicate]
At night I drift atop an anesthetic sea
the man right here must have been predisposed genetically
auto-coping mechanism, mecca for high treason
never dry season cause I show that bottle nepotism
breathing through gills the world don’t seem so wrong
and vexing, Skeksis in the mirror when you’re clean too long
the next thing, you’re touching the third rail with malice
splashing liquor down your palette out the Jesus Holy Grail chalice
And you ain’t stressing over lessons you earned, imagine that
losing control of discipline you never learned
that’s why I slip, torment myself the way my thoughts do
defective trip, the way I was raised and taught to
You never learned any better, hell adults
never told you this shit’ll lay you straighter out than smelling salts
young man fell into all types of falling off, hauling bottles off
the MacKay Bridge til they call the cops
His world couldn’t work on oxygen alone, he needed
liquid courage he was shown that’s the quickest version.
He couldn’t laugh or cry chill out when alone, his world was extroverted,
Kid that’s my word now you blessed you heard it
I talk to Buddha when I’m needing spiritual receiving
who’s this on seedy city streets fiending feeding demons?
This isn’t me I’m going through some things I need a drink and
This isn’t real I’m not a fiend sometimes just need that feeling
they say go home, I stay on the fence
excuses stagger more than liquor making no kind of sense
I’m talking, all kinds of shit when I’m all kinds of jack danned
Now this ain’t funny so put the beer back man
Fact man, Odds are stacked and, when I’m throttled
Pop bottles and eat up the dots like fuckin Pac-Man
Raise my glass to the man I used to be
And drift ever further on an anesthetic sea
