    From deep down in Melbourne’s rock pool, crustacean-sensations, Shrimpwitch have emerged from the waves to blow landlubbers away with their debut shrimp-charged garage punk and mock rock EP, Eggs Eggs Eggs, out May 5 on Hysterical Records.

    The fabulous two piece, Georgi Goonsack and Kim Prawn, are the first release from the Hysterical Records label. Their ferociously raw and high-energy rock and roll performances explore the hardness and softness of the Shrimpwitch shell with uproarious banter, rock outfits and humour.

    Eggs Eggs Eggs is an unrelenting force, echoing early 80s new-wave and garage punk. It’s a fifteen-minute party featuring the kind of filth and fabulousness you’d expect from a work inspired by the band’s favourite trash filmmaker, John Waters. Kim Prawn, delivering wicked solos and crunchy riffs on her black sparkly guitar, Ursula while Goonsack screams menacingly and thunders on the drums, favouring crashes and non-stop kick for a fast and ominous rhythm.

    The opening cut to this tasty shrimp cocktail comes in the form of, “Smokey Business”, an emotional garage-banger with a morose rock and roll surf tone, The short sharp salty anthem, “Minimum Chips” spreads the message of getting by and eating fries. Further along the EP, “Lust For A Kick” encapsulates the rock ferocity that we love about the furious duo; Georgi Goonsack notes it’s “a lustful, boozy, hedonistic tale of pleasure and pain”, while “Egg Paranoia” is the creepy Shrimpwitch anthem where the EP gets it’s name.

lyrics

A smile like yours jolts lightening
A smile like yours loosens tightening
A smile like yours isn't frightening
A smile like yours has not got me quietening

A drink doesn't mean marriage
but i'll drink till I fall apart
You're inside me
But not inside my heart

A body like yours doesn't need to cut to a heap
A body like yours can take my feet from the sweep
A body like yours swimming into the deep
A body like yours won't send me to sleep
A kiss from you is a saline dream
A kiss from you like choo choo train steam
A kiss from you is a familiar gleam
A kiss from you is a ravenous beam

A drink doesn't mean marriage
but i'll drink till I fall apart
You're inside of me
But not inside my heart

A drink of you taste like water and air
A drink of you playing funny and fair
A drink of you to melt my chair
A drink of you so I'm not even there
A lust for a kick to banish all my rocks
A lust for a kick to vanish all my socks
A lust for a kick to tarnish my locks
A lust for a kick to punish the clocks

Oh baby! Oh honey! Oh sexy! Oh no!
When I said that I wanted a drink
I wanted a drink of you
And I can drink when I want
Lover, I just wanted a screw
And please don't misconstrue
You haven't left me blue
I'm just trying to initiate
Giving you the keys for the pearly gate

A drink doesn't mean marriage
but i'll drink till I fall apart
You're inside of me
But not inside my heart
