The weekend has arrived so I suppose I better start putting together a playlist for Tuesday's Just Some Punk Songs show (shameless plug

: https://www.facebook.com/events/235748777103418/). One song that'll feature is a new one from Mary Bell.

Influenced by the likes of Sonic Youth and Bratmobile, they're a band from Paris who I wrote about last year when featuring a song from their very fine (name your price on Bandcamp) debut album https://justsomepunksongs.blogspot.com/2017/01/mary-bell-empty-puppet.html I don't really need to repeat myself so I'll just point you towards their Facebook and band pages (https://www.facebook.com/MaryBellFTW/) (https://marybellftw.com/) and get on with telling you that they're preparing to release (on Oct 1st) a new ep titled Histrion. It'll contain 6 tracks on 45 rpm 12" vinyl and it'll also be available digitally. Pre order it here : https://marybellftw.bandcamp.com/

There's a couple of songs already available for you to stream, this is the second one that's been teased out. When I play Mary Bell on the show, the chatroom folk are always very complimentary, I'm sure they will be again for this critique on the pressures faced by women after giving birth and the need to put their lives on hold and Be A Mom...

They tell me I'm a muff
and i'm supposed to hide my stuff
Since birth that I am wrong
Abort my ideas and get along
They tell me I must be a mom
Forget what's really turning me on
Living at society's pace
10-day-make-up dripping on my face
Since birth that I'm too serious
And now I know that...
We are living in a farce
And I'm so pissed at the human race
They tell me I must be a mom
Forget what's really turning me on
Since birth that I'm too showy
And I'd rather hide my cavities
Living at society's pace
10-day-make-up dripping on my face
We are living in a farce
We are living in a farce
They tell me I must be a mom
Forget what's really turning me on
And I'm so pissed at the human race...
And I'm so pissed at the human race...
