Let’s get away from some politician and whinging over men getting messed when women could easily have copped it and instead look at summat a bit different from Weebl’s Stuff. As far as I’m aware, this is the only song that I’m aware of that actually outright addresses the WAM fetish in the lyrics. Maybe it doesn’t, though, since Weebl is known for his rather odd lyrics. Besides, I don’t think I’ve heard of Marmite, Bovril, pickles, chutney, rice, a pasty and marmalade being used for WAM before (though most of them seem possible). Anyway, take a listen to this track: “Sexual Marmite”.
I’d like us to delve into German industrial music for a moment. This is Formalin, with a track called “My Fetish”. Never in the song is it said what their fetish is. However, with two female models (oh, and the singer and drummer) getting covered in black goo, I think I might work it out…
So what would becoming a militant cat involve anyway?
Regardless, I’d love to see more singers talk about WAM in their lyrics. I made an opinion piece over on my blog about it. Go take a look. It won’t hurt, I promise!
