Read All About It | More Crackers Please!

 

 

Just two days to go til Mo Crack and we’re getting crazy excited peeps!

PLEASE NOTE TICKETS ARE NOW SOLD OUT AND THERE WILL BE NONE AVAILABLE ON THE DOOR!

For those of you going, we just wanted to prep you for the karaoke swoon fest! After the screening the Boppers will be filming attendees singing live to Keep On Livin’ in a specially decorated private karaoke booth. Need a reason to get on board? We gots a few for you:

(a) the resulting music video will be totally BADASS and you will kick yourself forever that you are not in it

(b) the lovely ladies behind the event are kinda hoping it will serve IN PERPETUITY as a record of the DIY feminist/queer punk culture and community in the UK that Le Tigre have helped to foster. If you are a part of this community, you really should be in the video.

So please, learn all the words to Keep On Livin’ (though flashcards are being laminated). See lyrics below! Dutch courage may be available to those who need extra persuasion. See you there darlings!

LE TIGRE – KEEP ON LIVIN’

You hide inside, so not okay
(keep on, keep on livin’)
What if you remember more today?
(keep on, keep on livin’)
The phone keeps ringing but there’s too much to say
(keep on, keep on livin’)
You tell them to go when you wish they would stay
(keep on, keep on livin’)

You gotta keep on
(keep on livin’)
You gotta keep on
(keep on livin’)
You gotta keep on
(keep on livin’)
You gotta keep on
(keep on livin’!)

Disproportionate reactions just won’t fade
(keep on, keep on livin’)
Every dude you see puts you in a rage
(keep on, keep on livin’)
Stupid shit just makes you cry
(keep on, keep on livin’)
Your friends are worried you won’t tell them why
(keep on, keep on livin’)

You gotta keep on
(keep on livin’)
You gotta keep on
(keep on livin’)
You gotta keep on
(keep on livin’)
You gotta keep on
(keep on livin’)

Look up to the sky sky sky
Take back your own tonight
You’ll find more than you see
It’s time now now get ready
So you can taste that sweet sweet cake and
Feel the warm water in a lake y’know
What about that nice cool breeze? and
Hear the buzzin’ of the bumble bees just
Live beyond those neighbourhood lives and
Go past that yard outside and
Push through their greatest fears and
Live past your memories tears cuz
You don’t need to scratch inside no
Just please hold onto your pride and
So don’t let them bring you down and
Don’t let them fuck you around cuz
These are your arms that is your heart and
No no they can’t tear you apart they can’t
Take it away no
This is your time this is your life and
This is your time this is your life and
This is your time this is your life and
This is your time this is your life and
Keep on livin’
This is your time this is your life and

(repeat)

Keep on livin’!
