Fuck! (x7) Fuck! (x7) Fuck! (x7) Fuck! (x7) Ate shit on a little rock, Broke my face on sidewalk chalk, I don't talk, I got nothing to say, Skate around and get high all day. Fuck! (x7) Fuck! (x7) Fuck! (x7) Fuck! (x7) Ate shit on a little rock, Broke my face on sidewalk chalk, All you breakers, makers, takers dead, Shot you all in the fucking head.

Static 04:48
When I leave I'll be gone so long, I'll be off trying to right my wrongs, That'll be the way that I'll be free. The only way to really be. Not just an echo! Echo! When I leave I'll be gone so soon, I'll be off talking to the moon, 'Cause you think you're some shooting star, You don't know how wrong you are. You are nothing! Nothing! Ready? Go! Bat acid inside me turning low, yeah! Sativa killing floor I know, The way it takes my thoughts away, And puts in fifty more that stay. It's all just static! Static! Ready? It's all just static! So much static, It's all, all, all, just static!

Blood flows, from my veins, to my head, And my toes. Sore throat, why I scream, it's my scheme, No one knows. Eyes red, braindead, lungs hurt, Like you said. Jumping round, up & down, yelling loud, My souls found. Hazy eyes, spirits broke, this show, I did not compromise. Played for ten, poured my soul, turned to coal, In the end. Guitars smashed, hell & back, hairs a mess, Tendons slashed. I'm feelin' out, wanna' shout, dance about, My self I doubt. Ready? 1, 2, 3, Go! Do it again now. On the count of 4 we're gonna come back in, alright? 1, 2, 3, 4! [unintelligible] one more, ya' ready? Fuck this shit, I'm damn beat, tired, And not feelin' it. Goin' insane, maniac, heart attack, Broken brain. Heart beat, bloody feet, hit the ground, Broadway Street. Saskatchewan, I'm so gone, so withdrawn, And now I go on!

about

This demo is made up of songs conceived in early 2018 to early 2019, some of them started as ideas of riffs even early. Some of these songs mean a lot to us, and some we wrote days before this recordings, and don't even have proper lyrics.

This demo was recorded in under 3 hours, in Jake's basement, by Keith Allan Corbett of The Lunatic Touch. Most songs only took one take, all live off the floor. It's raw, it's unpolished, it's messy, it's sloppy, but fuck it... it's a demo.

about

The Sex Geckos Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

The Sex Geckos make songs you should know, but don't. They make music in the genres of gutter pop, slaughter-surf & psycho psych, none of which are real genres. They play manic, noisy, & fuzzy tunes. They're the party that you would call the cops on, but they're playing the Velvets, Sonic Youth, and Television, so you let it slide. The Sex Geckos are aliens.. but they don't come in peace. ... more
