about

Josh Mckay, one-man-band writer/producer known for a wide range of projects (most recently as bassplayer in Deerhunter), offers up the debut of a new incarnation...
The Corsican, this month via a juicy Valentine’s 7” from Chunklet Industries.
This irresistible little platter reveals a widescreen, almost bipolar range, in its bold pairing of sides.
The Valentine’s A-side, “Fever Believer”, embodies a loose hi-energy collision of turn-of-the-70s rock splattered with copious redhot Moog freakouts and manic drumming. It’s all throbbing abandon and urgent emotion…
The B-side, “Love at First Sight”, is a deeply reimagined cover of the first solo single by iconic Welsh pop innovator, Stuart Moxham, (fka Young Marble Giants), during his short-run incarnation as The Gist.
It unfolds in a silky, subtle, slow-dance kind of way, smoldering as if in antidote to the howling swirl of the A-side.
A complete Valentine’s package.
A darkly sweet confection to counter the unromantic formalism of pop music today.

Track Name: Fever Believer
just let me love you
let me show you
the sky below you
so close to heaven
ah but heaven
it doesn't want us
it doesn’t welcome us
with our intentions
cunnilingtensions
cum to fruition
with such elation
like a fever
like a fever
it makes no sense
piloerection
is all that matters
nothing else matters
our skulls are shattered
our brains are splattered
across the mattress
like a fever
it takes you over
never recover
like a lover
nothing else matters
like a fever...
Fever Believer!
Fever Believer!
nothing else matters
but YOU
you you y-y-y-y-y-y-YOU

I want you I want your sin
there’s no returning from the state we’re in
brain damage is kicking in
I’ve got a fever of 110!
Fever Believer!
