about

Ste McCabe Edinburgh, UK

My name is Ste McCabe. I am a one-man band.

I use a distorted guitar, drum machines and a synth to make noises with. I am a politicised queer, feminist, working class bastard and I like to make people dance with my rantings. ... more

Track Name: Harrowing Breakdown
Every decent person should have a harrowing breakdown
Every honest person will have a harrowing breakdown
You're a pretty lady, and I'm a strong man maybe
Everyone should head towards that hole for a short while
Where you can swap a pound for a penny
You can make it on the telly
You can work the checkout until you're 60
And you can't count the men once that you get to 30
Everyone should have a breakdown
Everyone should have a harrowing breakdown
Every decent person will have a harrowing breakdown
Every honest person should have a harrowing breakdown
Hormones, family politics and Joan Rivers' eyebrows
It's all perfectly designed for that black holiday
Where you can swap a pound for a penny
You can make it on the telly
You can work the checkout until you're 60
And you can't count the men once that you get to 30
Everyone should have a breakdown
Everyone should have a harrowing breakdown
Every decent person will have a harrowing breakdown
Every intelligent person will have a harrowing breakdown
Every honest person will have a harrowing breakdown
Selling your body is vile, but selling your brain is so worthwhile
Selling neither is what we call being parasitical
Well I could swap a pound for a penny
I can make it on the telly
I can work the checkout until I'm 60
And I can't count the men now that I'm past 30.
Track Name: Ste McCabe with Maria and the Gay - Make Your Own Kind Of Music
Nobody can tell you
There's only one song worth singing
They may try and sell ya,
'cause it hangs them up
to see somone like you.

But you've gotta make your own kind of music
sing your own special song,
make your own kind of music even if nobody
else sing along.

You're gonna be NOWHERE
the loneliest kind of lonely.
It may be rough going,
just to do your thing,
the hardest thing to do.

But you've gotta make your own kind of music
sing your own special song,
make your own kind of music even if nobody
else sings along.
Track Name: Ste McCabe 1, Lloyds TSB Nil
Tell me what's behind those piggy eyes
I see no emotion and a vow to lie
and what's my plan for tonight's bill?
drinking fake lambrini, getting peasant thrills
when the phone stops ringing, what will we do?
running back to King Street where the piggies go
I'll be on a flight with no frills
didn't even need to start popping pills

what will we do when there's no corpse to screw?

when our bubble turned to blue
you thought that it was news for you
coz I know that it makes you blue
that grandma's dentures aren't for you
I will don that cheap tutu
I'll busk outside and play the fool
I know it's a sight for you
but we will show our knickers when you lose

tell me what's behind those piggy eyes
a peanut bonus as a major prize
stealing baby milk to get some target thrills
I'm dancing like a fairy, burning nasty bills
well it's very easy when you know how
holding out your papers for that precious stamp
now I'd recommend it to anyone
guess it barclays nil and peasant boy one!

what will we do when there's no corpse to screw?

when our bubble turned to blue
you thought that it was news for you
coz I know that it makes you blue
that grandma's dentures aren't for you
I will don that cheap tutu
I'll busk outside and play the fool
I know it's a sight for you
but we will show our bottoms when you lose
Track Name: That's Not Very Funny
Well I pay good money
and I don't think it's funny
my vote's for the future while you're bitching in the past
and by the way bunny
your skin's tucked under your hat
and you're a nasty old bigot that I'd rather not look at
but that's not very funny
that's not very funny
that's not very funny, is it? No.

Am I the one who you mean?
I'm that stupid laughing queen
I pay for all of your dreams
I'm the bitch who you need.

Well I've got box tickets
for every night of your show
and I do modern humour with a focus on what's next
I'll be there laughing
at the bitchiness you promote
saying "I could make a handbag from the skin around your neck"
but that's not very funny
that's not very funny
that's not very funny, is it? No.

Am I the one who you mean?
I'm that stupid laughing queen
I pay for all of your dreams
I'm the bitch who you need.
