Let's Quit - Skanouska 7" (1991)
B - Vegetarian Shoes
This is the actual single. I know I posted this years ago but they were the versions from the album. This is my own rip of the single.
Igor was a boy from Vladivostok,
Skanouska was the girl on his mind.
He always did his best to attract her attention,
but it seemed as if Skanouska was blind.
He swam the Wolga nude with minus 20 degrees,
he climbed the Kaukasus on his two bare knees.
But Skanouska made love with all the other boys,
'cause for her they were all much better toys.
One day Igor found Skanouska messin' around,
she was playing with Igor's best mate.
He was frustrated 'cause he wanted to show her his dung,
that he saved for weeks in a box with a gate.
So Igor grabbed his knife and cut his friend in two,
and after him all the others of Skanouska's crew.
Now Igor was happy and he wanted nothing more,
but Skanouska was crying 'cause Igor was a bore.
Let's Quit's stuff is hard to track down. They have several other recordings and there are still two that I need: a 4-track EP from 1997 called "Survival of the Quittest" with song titles: Kirk's Deception, Don't Count on Me, Postman, and Padadow, - the first three songs were on the album "Imprisoned" but the 'song' Padadow isn't on any of their other recordings and I'm guessing, because it's less than a minute long, that it's not a song, just some studio shenanigans. Then they had another one called "Burp That Offbeat". I don't know if Burp That Offbeat is an album or an EP and I have no idea what year it's from or what songs are on it. I have never even seen the covers for these two releases. I'm not exactly desperate to get a copy of Survival of the Quittest (but if you see a copy you should snatch it up - it is rare) but I am desperate to find out more about Burp that Offbeat.
What I do have by them was sent to me by different people because they have never been available for sale anywhere as long as I have been aware of the band.
I have posted their first album "The Southern Belles Party Beat" from 1995 previously and the one I'm posting here is that same low-quality version with track #14 missing.
