Look beyond your own thirst

We’re down for life with one destiny
It seems that the devil keeps testing me
Got the illest part of the recipe
– Q-Tip, Pad & Pen, The Love Movement, 1998

Back in the days when I was a teenager, when I lived in NY without a pager
Too many kids got lost in the malls, giving away their spirit to consumer calls

Touched pucks on the ice, took the sound shore scoring crown twice
Tribe inspired me first, to dig deeper and look beyond your own thirst

Go!

Q-Tip is back on track, this time he’s on with the Chemical Brothers new release „Go“, the second track on their upcoming album Born in the Echoes via se germanically inspired name Astralwerks. Released in May, the „Go“ video has a Bauhaus/Kraftwerk/Metropolis feel and was directed by Michel Gondry, who also had his signature under the superhero action flik The Green Hornet, yup, with Christoph Waltz and Seth Rogen.

Metropolis on the edge of control. They take our money, but they won’t take our soul. Forget, ain’t gon‘ do it no mo‘. Won’t do what we told and we ain’t gonna fold. We go.

For all the German viewers, thanks to the royalty collectors Gema, who btw need some serious competition, the „Go“ video can’t be found on YouTube, only on the mighty sluggish vevo. Thanks to the Brothers for uploading the Gema friendly version a few days ago. Go, go, go.
