about

Recorded in 1979 and released in 1980, Table Matters was the first vinyl release by Storm Bugs consisting of 5 tracks, supplemented here by a live version of Window Shopping recorded at Limehouse Town Hall in 2012.

The music for the EP was recorded in Deptford and then mixed/processed in New Cross at the Goldsmiths Electronic Music Studios. Most of the tracks make use of locked groove records - achieved by scratching/cutting various well know records of the day with a scalpel.

Eat Good Beans
Eat Good Beans with your meat
I said eat good beans with your meat
It'll make you skin go brown

Eat Good Beans with your meat
I said eat good beans with your meat
It'll makes your breasts grow round

Eat Good Beans with your meat
I said eat good beans with your meat
The fruit seller wears a felt hat
His wife sits at home in the council flat
He parks the car by the porch
He's cooked her more time than he's cooked the pork
I said eat good beans with your meat

Eat Good Beans with your meat
I said eat good beans with your meat
Eat Good Beans with your meat

It's winter, the lamb crackles in the animal fat,
whilst outside we go from shop to shop in street after street
Window shopping, window shop

The stink of milk and baby fat,
the stinking of the gin under the concrete mat
The stink of milk and baby fat,
whilst outside we go from shop to shop in street after street
Window shopping, window shop
