SUGAR DADDIE: Hell or High Water: CD

Aug 13, 2009

Anything with this much pirate imagery can’t be all bad. Yet, I don’t suppose that these guys knew there was going to be a movie with the same name as their song, “Pirates of the Caribbean,” when they started recording. Musically, this is sort of a grunge with Cookie Monster vocal thing. Lyrically it’s a weird sort of cock rock meets children’s rhymes, with an Andrew Dice Clay sort of twist. “Mother Goose just got an abortion from a man named Dr. Seuss,” is an actual line. Dr. Seuss appears again later to steal the singer’s wallet in another song.
