New Man Man Tune: “Engwish Bwudd”

From the looks of this song, Man Man‘s new album is going to be spectacular.

MP3: Man Man – Engwish Bwudd
I’m of the mind that the inclusion of bits of traditional songs can spice up songs and even be a little cute. This song is no exception. The chorus (if you can call it that) is the easily-recognizable ‘fe fi fo fum, I smell the blood of an English man,’ of which it makes good use. ‘Engwish Bwudd’ runs the gauntlet between a romping barroom singalong and a tune that wouldn’t be out of place in a musical like Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. As long as you’re not expecting a traditional YANP-style pop song, I highly suggest it.

In a strange coincidence, Man Man are also the interviewees over at Indie Interviews today. Cue the twilight zone music, people.

NOTE: I got my wisdom teeth pulled today (all 4 of them) and I’m kinda not in a posting mood. So if I should go until tomorrow afternoon without an update, I’m sorry. I’m sitting on the sofa watching Arrested Development with a pound of gauze in my mouth. It sucks because I can’t really laugh without it hurting :(

  1. Just had that done in June. You’ll recover quickly. I found that changing the guaze was the worst part of the whole enterprise.

  2. I thought getting my wisdom teeth out was so fun. But they didn’t pull mine, they went in surgically and I was asleep. I don’t know what you did. But on the way home I tried to sing along with the radio…it was the Ramones, “I Wanna Be Sedated.” I found out that I didn’t really know the words at all, so it was just me shouting every so often, “I wanna be sedated!”

  3. Thanks guys!

    I think the worst of it is over. I’ve stopped bleeding and it’s only occasionally achey (unfortunately, it’s aching now lol) I’m trying not to take the pills they gave me. I’m not really too big on pills.

    Now I’ve GOT to listen to that Ramones song. Does it get any better than that? lol

  4. I feel you bro! I have been dealing with my last wisdom tooth for the past 4 days. I have had the other 3 taken out over the years as they destroyed me from the inside…..way to get it all out of the way at once!

    While it isnt fitting in this situation, a trip to the dentist is always an occasion to spin “Mouthfull of Cavities” by Blind Melon!
