about

When Soupy LaRue first arrived on Earth (by whatever means necessary) he was worried. He was a worried man. He’d come looking for someone to settle down with; a girl-next-door type, he just kept moving house until he found her. He’s been living with a beautiful young woman for six months ago, but she just found out and she wasn’t happy, so Soupy’s been spending his time lying low.

The band, Soupy LaRue - who created themselves in Soupy’s perfect and obnoxious image - have been working on their EP for a few years now; writing, rehearsing, tweaking, recording, being robbed and losing the recordings, re-recording and writing other stuff that was too late and will have to deal with not being recorded in its own way.

The result of this Sisyphusian effort is the bombastic record Soupy LaRue EP. Arcing gracefully from madcap EDM with cannibalistic under (and over) tones, through self loathing ballads, via this one guitar heavy instrumental we don’t talk about, and into the stalker song of our generation. Punktry, Cowpunk, Punkabilly, Shit-Kicking-Anger-Stomp, whatever you want to call their sound, it’ll get you in the mood* in a way you’ve never heard before.

LYRICS

My girl, she left a year ago today
She winced 'Goodbye' through tears, and she was on her way
Help me, Jesus, help me
Turn another page
I fear I'll always stay
The same young age

The train flew by, it's sixteen coaches long.
The girl I love is on that train and gone.
Help me, Jesus, help me
Turn another page
I fear I'll always stay
The same young age

It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
I'm worried now, but I won't be worried long

My only friend, he had so much to learn
Proven in death, all pleasure given to the worm
Help me, Jesus, help me
Turn another page
I fear I'll always stay
The same young age

It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
I'm worried now, but I won't be worried long

So I cursed the shoes in which I stood,
The train platform, the land, the trees, the wood.
Help me, Jesus, help me
Send me down a sign
I feel I'm growing old before my time.

It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
I'm worried now, but I won't be worried long

It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
I'm worried now, but I won't be worried long
