about

Recorded completely to 2" tape by the same guy and in the same basement as the Presidents' original version of Kitty, Mind Vice's Humanimality continues their signature "sludgefunk" sound.

"Bluesmotorwolf" was heavily inspired by the iconic energy of the late Lemmy Kilmister (as the name implies) with just enough harmonica and slap bass to make it Mind Vice. Walter O'Toole's soulful vocals complete this energetic homage-turned-tribute.

"Congress of the Crow" combines Michael Knapp's tasty stoner-rock riffage with the signature bass talkbox sound of Ian "liquid fingers" Sides. Miles Hubbard's heavy hitting drums contrast with Walter O'Toole's vocals that range from brother's Gibb style falsetto to powerful rock melodies. A bass-talkbox-slide solo rounds out this groovy number.

"Kitty" is a vice-ified version of the Presidents of the United States' classic tune, complete with funkification and of course, copious meows.

"Break the Cage (Little Monkey)" taps into the bands primal energy for a fast but thought provoking exploration into the relationship between humanity, nature, and technology.

Recorded & produced by Conrad Uno @ Egg Studios.

Take me home
Long blue road
Take me home
On it goes
Long blue road
Round the world, yeah

Ooo open up the book
The story is reborn
Another motor is breaking down
Another heart beat up and worn

Take me home
Long blue road
Take me home
On it goes
Long blue road
Round the world, yeah

Ooo it’s the same old song
A thousand ramblers sing alone
A love that’s burning awful slow
A road that never makes it home

Long blue road
Goes and goes
Round the world
Long blue road
Goes and goes
Round the world

Many a pining ghost
Many a howling wolf
Many a heart breaking
On that road just like me

I keep on walking
I keep on riding
I keep on loving
I keep on crying

Walking that road
This road is home
Walking that road

Track Name: Break the Cage (Little Monkey)
another little monkey hooked up with their hands and eyes
feeding the machine the data bleed the data till you die
a digital liberation? never heard a better lie
it put the animal in chains and didn’t even have to try

fight! fight!
the technology
mind! vice!
is gripping your brain
fight! fight!
you’re a primate
mind! vice!
gotta break the cage

the sky is falling into pixelated scenery
the code creeping in your brain manipulate the sensory
your heart beats a song it’s the spirit of a runaway
animal, break the digital penitentiary

fight! fight!
the technology
mind! vice!
is gripping your brain
fight! fight!
you’re a primate
mind! vice!
gotta break the cage

get out while you can and run back to the trees
climb to the top and swear you’ll never leave and
shout out the primal scream of primate in anarchy
fuck the technology reclaim humanimality

fight! fight!
the technology
mind! vice!
is gripping your brain
fight! fight!
you’re a primate
mind! vice!
gotta break the cage
fight! fight!
gotta break the cage
mind! vice!
gotta break the cage
fight! fight!
gotta break the cage
mind! vice!
gotta break the cage
