That is glorious, nice one nags! all these lyrics are spot on as well.

Fucking hell, i just realised the singer is 36. Is he not even a tiny bit embarrassed ?

Thanks everyone! :)

I'm considering making more but I honestly think I would get bored of it really quickly, as their music is so flat and vacuous I wouldn't really know what to do with it. Maybe I'll just use the same backing track over and over but change the lyrics and swap the birdcall samples for something else. Clown horns?

Not trying to match the excellent faux-Idles lyrics in this thread, but I had a feeling that Talk to Transformer might be raise Model Village above playground taunting levels. And, lo, it did, creating a kind of an evil Captain Beefheart vibe that I'd like to hear properly now.

A lot of nine-fingered boys in the village
They haven't got much choice in the village (Yeah)
Model car, model wife, model village
Model far, model right, model village
They ain't too friendly in the village (In the village)
There’s a tabloid frenzy in the village
He's "not a racist but" in the village
Gotta drive half-cut in the village

So when you go to the fair
You better have a beer or you might get lucky
Can't turn a blind eye to the mafia, boy
Tell me a lie, there ain't no such thing as a little white lie
There ain't no such thing as a white lie in the village
Killer turned white
The pilot is a thug
He's a bad boy, a meany
He don't have a sense of humour
So when you're walking in the rain
And you don't know what you're doing
I've seen a lot of dead people
So when you take the final pill
Watch out for my knife

Seconding the praise for that fantastic Mollusk Idles song, absolutely spot on.

I don’t mind Idles, as noted in CaB’s previous threads about them, I saw them before matey got angry when his mum died and they got woke, when they were Indie Landfill supporting the Maccabees about 7 years ago and I also saw them in 2018; it was noticeable how boomer-heavy the audience was. Model Village is a terrible song though.

Excellent work, nags. Much better than what I've heard of Idles and your voice doesn't sound like farts.

I couldn't think of a way to fill the second bridge without recording more vocals, which I couldn't be arsed to do, so I just looked up what sound effects were available in the software. I thought bird calls would be appropriate because "twit twoo" and SEXISM BAD and all that. Also it just sounds funny.

Mate you know who directed it? Michel fucking Gondry. The dude who made the incredible videos for Fell in Love With a Girl, Star Guitar and Cibo Matto's Sugar Water churned out this elitist piss where, in the first 30 seconds, a pregnant trophy woman with a pig snout robotically churns a baby out of a car exhaust. It's embarrassing.

His review brought another new song of theirs to my attention: Ne Touche Pas Moi, whose lyrics are:
Just listened to this to check you weren't exaggerating.

How can anyone not find that shit embarrassing? Absolutely woeful.

I have honestly been thinking about writing a parody song. I mean, it wouldn't take very long would it? Could probably knock out an EP over the next couple of days.

Funny you say that as I think a lot of IDLES music sounds like Chris Morris's old parody songs.

I've not much to add to this thread as it's all been articulated (and well), but I just wanted to say I'm glad that it exists because even amongst friends who normally have good taste I seem to be one of the few who thinks they're a steaming pile of dog shite.

well. I suppose some (only some) of the animation is quite nice but conceptually it's one of the worst music videos ive ever seen
