Modern Man is Ultra Quick

BandRockPunk

Bands usually seek to do one of two things: define their genre, or defy their genre. MMiUQ's debut release "Fabulist" is a modernistic example of the genre-splicing, the cutting edge, the exciting and the delicious. Hard, Honest, Brilliant. Smart Rock!

Biography

Andy Johnson (founder and songwriter - MMiUQ) started listening to black metal when he was 12, shortly after being introduced to the devil by Rush, AC/DC and Black Sabbath. By age 14 he'd extended his listening tastes to punk rock, skate rock and Bela Bartok (a modern classical composer).
His formative 16-21 years, definitely, found Johnson in 'art rock/math rock dork land' in addition to lending his ears to things like the chanting of Gyuto Monks, the Bulgarian Women's Choir, and the instruments of Harry Partch and Diamanda Galas.
He's played the bass guitar since he was 11, played in several bands/types of bands, toured the US and Europe and in 1997 discovered his need to produce electronic music - which he's been doing, releasing records for several years in addition to the occasional film score.
Thank goodness Johnson's no longer playing the desk and pen holder on a daily basis, (you never heard anything so god damn annoying). Somewhere in the midst of his musical education he graduated with honors from Berklee, had an epiphany that Roy Orbison was enlightened and Hank Williams Sr. wrote every song that ever needs to be written about love, loss and drinking.

Modern Man is Ultra Quick calls on Johnson's fresh musical and lyrical ideas changing the way our world's auditory landscape is heard.

BASED in BRIGHTON, UK and LOS ANGELES, CA USA

Lyrics

FF Sunday

Written By: Andrew Johnson

It’s one more F’n F Sunday! The weekend never felt so long.
I have to look you in the eye, but I will never shake your hand
So many words I point to you, so many feelings that get stuck inside
Your grim misunderstanding illustrates just why I can’t abide.

OH BEHAVE
FF
THAT’S YOUR NAME
AND I HATE YOU!

Don’t you mistake my words today, you are the epitome of shit.
I’ve tried to think around the meaning, and I always find I draw a split.
If I could be a child again, I’d be your son so I could break your heart.
It’s just an art to be so wry, creating words that make you cry.

CHECK THE TIME
FF
EVERY SUNDAY
THAT’S WHEN I GET TO SAY

[bridge]
It’s just another day each week.
I get to speak my mind, and I look forward every time.
Each day I ask myself, how could you have become BOVINE?
Sometimes I wish I could be blind.
I wouldn’t have to see, you let him out the car for me.
And maybe you could be, a pure non-entity in my mind.

Waking Up to Your Wisdom

Written By: Andrew Johnson

I see you, every day. You’re eyes sunken, in that way – you like to
Tell the mothers, their on high. Tell your brothers, they can lie just like you.
Sell faces, splitting days in half to – quell the races. It’s hunky dory have to
WAIT. But I can’t wait forever…

I’M WAKING UP TO YOUR WISDOM
I’M WAKING UP TO YOU

Stop it. Stop it now.
You’re so scared it makes a mess – in your dress.
Put your pants on, be a man for once.

You know me. I’m the one. People meet me, think I’m fun – I like to
Have a drink sometimes, when I’m high.
Have a think sometimes, when you lie – just like you
Tell stories. Try to make them real. Tall morals fall much harder while I wait.
But I won’t take that bait.

I’M WAKING UP TO YOUR WISDOM
I’M WAKING UP TO YOU

JUMP JUMP [clean]

Written By: Andrew Johnson

Jump jump, off the roof
Break every bone and every tooth
Split splat, off you go
Another piece of crap I didn’t wanna know
Twitch witch, when you land in a ditch
It’s not the kind of crash you can fix with a stitch
Jump jump, I’ll be praying for your death
The world got lighter when you took your last breath

CHORUS

Jump jump out of your truck
You know I’m gonna laugh cuz I don’t give a f***
Crash crash, into a tree
Let the record state it’s what I’d love to see
Clap clap it’s a round of applause
I finally got away from your filthy little paws
Ding dong sound the funeral bells
You die, I laugh, cuz I’m going to hell

Fight all you want with me, try and be all you can be.
You won’t see the death of me. I win you lose, how it's supposed to be

So just to summarize, I hate you most from your head to your thighs
I’ll take a bat to your knees
And from their to your feet, I hope you die of disease
I think I make myself clear
One thing will make me grin from my ear to my ear
Your swift departure and demise
So I won’t spend no more time on the one I despise
