Girl Band “Why They Hide They Bodies Under My Garage?”


I know nothing else about this band other than this fantastic cover of a great techno song. All of the concert clips were from London or Paris, so maybe they're Brits?
Not sure if it's my favorite song of the year, but it's definitely the song I'm most excited about RIGHT NOW.

Blawan's Pras-sampling original (below) should have made my "Best of 2012" list, but I found it too late. I was lucky to find this in time. (I think NPR Girl Band's proper album? I got to "Blawan Cover" and stopped reading and searched for the song.

  1. Research tells me they're Dubliners. (Interestingly, the top 4 results of a regular Google search for "Girl Band" are for this very band. But an image search turns up very few photos of them.)

    I've not encountered many song titles that comprise the entirety of a song's lyrics.

        1. Re: TMBG. Is the "Heeyah!" on the lyric sheet?
          I think you're right, but I'm hoping there's a technicality that could make me right instead.

        2. It is harder than I thought.
          Pharaoh Sanders "The Creator Has a Master Plan" appears to have a verse before the chanting (I'd forgotten), but even the chanting alternates between the title and "Peace and Happiness for every man".

          Staying on the same label, John Coltrane's "A Love Supreme" fits, but do you consider the title to be the movement, in which case it is "Acknowledgement".

            1. Well, either the lyrics are "Mmm... beer" or it's an instrumental.
              So I think it doesn't count.

              Another I can think of is in the vein of the Blawan original:
              Troy Pierce's "25 Bitches". Probably more examples in house/techno than anywhere else. I wish I could some up with another song with lyrics like a mantra (like if the Girl Band version was an original).

  2. I'm still racking my brain looking for songs with the lyrics solely existing of repetitions of the title (or subsets thereof).
    I've got six five four more, all but one techno-ish where the title is the words of the full vocal sample used.
    DJ Dodger Stadium "Friend of Mine" crud, there's another sample in there, possibly "He said I got...", very fast. Also, there are "oohs" throughout, but I wouldn't have disqualified it on them alone
    DJ Dodger Stadium "Sit Down, Satan"
    DJ Dodger Stadium "By Your Side"
    A Guy Called Gerald "Voodoo Ray" I forgot about the "Danger" sample. The wordless vocals "Ay-ahh, Oooh-ooh-ooh, ah-ha yea" are probably disqualifying by themselves, as well.
    Untold "Sing a Love Song" Once I thought of this, I was pretty sure of it... the whole song is based off one vocal sample being tortured in an echo chamber with volcanic bass.
    The Champs "Tequila"

    A bunch of near-misses by Coil (who often use two or three phrase mantras with variations, and restrict titling to just part of one of the mantras).
    Einstürzende Neubauten comes close on a few, but Blixa's always gotta riff somewhere, like on "NNNAAAMMM" or "The Garden", which are also titled too shortly. They'd be closer to failing if there were parentheticals: "NNNAAAMMM (New No New Age Advanced Ambient Motor Music Machine)" and "(You Can Find Me If You Want Me in) The Garden (Unless It's Pouring Down with Rain)".

    One might guess that Fiona Apple would have titled a song with its entire lyrics by now.

        1. I hear "Non" and "On".
