BandRock

It's loud. It's fast. It's rock music. If you want to compare ETF to other bands, try 'At the Drive-In' and add some more 'drive'. Some people say, they can hear Jazz in ETF music, but we don't think so.

Nois-o-lution about ETF:

ETF's debut album 'spilling drinks.spelling names' should leave you in rapture, if you are ready to get off the freeway to marvel at landscapes and people. If you�'re not afraid of turns and stop signs. Well,
indie mainstream is driving straight, 130 mph, three-lane, screaming it's mother's name – no need to worry, there's airbags. But these three gentlemen from northern Germany don't trust nothing, instead, they accelerate and at best scream their beliefs into your face.

EXITS TO FREEWAYS are caught between stools. Because they cherish it all and still question everything. Noise-Rock? Postcore? Punk? Alternative? SST? Anybody still know that? Whatever coordinates you drag out of the box, they're insufficient.
Dodgy, intelligent, sweaty at the same time, dirty, raw, mean and alive above all. This thing smells of trouble. A debut album how it is meant to be: unfinished, challenging, still full of ideas and emotions – but most notably: melodies! Despite increased aggressive potential that has to be contained, it is melodies and songs that seduce
you and stick in your head.

If this world was just, songs like „Narcissus As A Fuckboy“ or „Tourette Red“ would make radio stations glow – IF today was still about music. But is it actually? EXITS TO FREEWAYS do give you their music and nothing else. They refuse. If they talk,
they confuse, give themselves strange pseudonyms or cite John Cage… no hype, no history, no past life. No famous guests-on-record or namable producers, no liaison with another british supermodel.
It's about music!
It's about music!!
M-U-S-I-C!

And just who was this guy named Carl von Ossietzky?

PERFECT PERVERTS (TAKING PICTURES)

Written By: ETF

LOUD IS THE QUIET OLD/ AND IN THE SPOTLIGHT ALL THE DICKS DO GLEAM LIKE GOLD/ AND IN EVERY BREATH THATS SMOTHERED STAYS A STORY LEFT UNTOLD/ AND THIS PLACE HERE HAS IMPLODED/ SINCE WE PAID ATTENTION TO IT/ AND IN THE RUSH NOBODY NOTICED/ THAT YOU JUST CAN’T COPE WITH A COMPLIMENT/ SO WE’LL ALL SINK INTO OBLIVION/ AND CAUSE WE CAN’T GET ON WITH THINGS/ WE’LL KEEP THAT COURSE/ UNTIL THERE’S ABSOLUTE DEFEAT/ WE REPEAT/ A CONDITION OF THE DEADEST END/ PERPETUATED STILL BY POPULAR DEMAND/ IF THERE’S A CAUSE IT’S AN EFFECT AS INEFFECTIVE AS ANY ATTEMPT OR AFFECT OR IMMACULATE DESPERATE
THING THAT YOU’D EVER POSSIBLY TAKE TO BE RELEVANT/ AND THESE PERVERTS MAKE IT PERFECT/ BELIEVE ME/ IF THERE’S NOTHING TO THE SURFACE/ THEN THERE’S NOTHING TO THE SUBJECT

SIX YEARS AFTER GLAMORAMA

IF I COULD MAKE A PROPOSITION/ IF I COULD TELL THE DIFFERENCE EVERY DAY/ IF WE COULD CONSTITUTE THE OPPOSTION/ I COULDN’T THINK OF SOMETHING ELSE TO SAY/ THE SCENE IS RELENTLESS/ IF WE COULD STOP THE ACQUISITION/ IF WE COULD CUT THE CRAP AND MAKE A PACT/ IF THERE’S AN END TO REPETITION/ WE COULDN’T THINK OF OTHER WAYS TO ACT/ SHE SAID ‘WHY CAN’T YOU SEE THIS SCREEN IS ENDLESS’/ AND NOW WE’RE DRESSING UP IN SUITS TO HAUNT YOU/ THIS IS THE LAST ITCH THAT WON’T GO AWAY/ WHAT WE KNOW WE WON’T TELL/ WE’RE AVENGERS IN DIOR AND YSL/ AND ALL THAT’S LEFT FOR YOU TO DO IS WATCH US PULL RIGHT THROUGH/ IF WE COULD STOP THE ACQUISITION.../ TO SEE TO SLEPP TO HEAR TO FEEL/ TO REATHE IN DEEP/ TO CUT THE DEALS/ TO NEVER SQUEAK AND NEVER SQUEAL / YES WE ARE FLAWLESS
DESIGNS YOU CAN’T RESIST/ BEWARE NOW/ BEHIND YOUR BACKS THERE’S SOMETHING GATHERING/ SPILLING SEX AND MODESTY/ WE’RE A NEMESIS DRESSED UP IN BURBERRY/ WE ARE YOUR IMAGE AND WHAT’S MORE/ WE ALWAYS WERE

NARCISSUS AS A FUCKBOY

Written By: ETF

SO YOU WANT TO BE WANTED AND NEED TO BE NEEDED/ AND YOUR WAY OF ACHIEVING IS TO SLEEP WITH A FEEBLE ACTRESS/ WHERE DO YOU WANT TO GO FROM HERE/ THERE’S A BLUR IN YOUR EYES AND YOUR BACK’S GIVING IN/ AND JUST WHEN YOU REALIZE THAT YOUR FLESH IS NO LONGER WORKING/ THERE’S ALWAYS REFUGE IN FEMALE SKIN/ AND SHE SAYS/ IF ALL YOU WANT TO SEE/ IS SOMEONE LETTING GO/ TELL ME/ WHY DO YOU HOLD SO FAST/ AND SHE THINKS THAT IT’S FUN/ THAT IT’S A HABIT FUELED BY EGO/ OF LITERALLY DOING ANYONE/ IT’S NOT A HEDONISTIC
FEATURE/ IT’S JUST A SICKNESS THAT WON’T LEAVE/ IT’S LIKE A CRAZE, HON/ PUSH/ COME/ BREATHE/SO YOU WANT TO BE WANTED AND NEED TO BE NEEDED/ AND IT’S SO SAD TO SEE YOU HOLDING ON SO FAST/ DO YOU THINK THIS IS FUN/ THAT IT’S A HEDONISTIC FEATURE OF LITERALLY DOING ANYONE/ IT’S NOT NARCISSUS AS A FUCKBOY/ IT’S PAIN AND SADNESS AND CONTEMPT/ IT’S LIKE A PRISE OF PORN/ PUSH/ COME/ BREATHE/ AND THERE’S DEFINITELY NO EXCHANGE BETWEEN/ WHAT I AM AND WHAT YOU MEAN SO/ STOP HOLDING ON SO FAST

TOURETTE RED (A MONSTER IN MY LANGUAGE)

Written By: ETF

I’M GOING RED/ TOURETTE RED/ IT’S SPILLING OUT OF THE EYES/ TI’S DROOLING FROM THE MOUTH IT’S SCREAMING OVERHEAD/ I WANT TO BLOCK BUT IT’S THAT BAD/ IT’S BARKING AND SWEARING/ IT KEEPS THE KIDS FROM CARING/ IT HIDES IN THE BACK/ IT WANTS TO BE SPIT/ IT’S SOME KIND OF CLASSIC DISEASE/ IT GOES CRAPCRAPCRAPCRAPCRAPCRAPCRAP/ SCUM/ DOGS/ TRASH/ STARS/ CARS/ AND CASH (TURN ON THE FLASHLIGHTS) /I’M GOING RED/ TOURETTE RED/ IT’S SPILLING OUT OF THE EYES/ TI’S DROOLING FROM THE MOUTH IT’S SCREAMING OVERHEAD/ I WANT TO BLOCK BUT IT’S THAT BAD/ IT’S POURING AND POUNDING/ FOREVER KEEPS RESOUNDING/
THERE’S AN ERROR IN THE SYNTAX/ THERE IS A MONSTER IN MY LANGUAGE/ AND WHEN THE SPEECH IS GETTING SAVAGE/ ALL THE RECORDS WILL FAIL/ ALL THE SECRETS WILL GO TO WASTE/ SCUM/ DOGS/ TRASH/ STARS/ CARS/ AND CASH/ NOW TURN ON THE FLASHLIGHTS
