Near the end of Test Icicles first and only album “For Screening Purposes Only” comes “Dancing on Pegs”, a track written by guitarist Rory Atwell.
Can’t say much about the song… It has no deep meaning to me, or in general. I just think it’s really cool. Atwell once claimed it is about a relationship, but you wouldn’t really tell from the gory imagery made by the lyrics. Chopping someone down at the knee and bloody raw hands aren’t really the things I would come up with if I was taken. It’s sinister in tone, but quite hilarious too.
It’s a very noisy track. Not like there’s a whole mesh of instruments smashed together so the lyrics are incomprehensible or anything. Everything’s a bit distorted, some cool riffs occur during the verses and it’s delivered at a very quick rate.
Listen to it if you’re interested.
