STELLA DONNELLY (AUS) – BEWARE OF THE DOGS

ALBUM OF THE WEEK

Your personality traits don’t count if you put your dick
In someone’s face
And no it’s never too late, we sat there silently while
You kept your job and your place and your six-figure wage
Old Man

Have you lost your fucking mind?
Its never to late to be on time
You like to intimidate
Intimidate, intimidate
Fuck up your life, lose all your friends
Fuck up your life, intimidate (Fuck up your life, intimidate )
Fuck up your life, intimidate (Lose all your friends)
Fuck up your life, intimidate (Fuck up your life, yeah, you got it)
Intimidate, lose all your friends (Go on, fuck up your life)
Fuck up your life, fuck up your life (Lose all your friends, go on)
Fuck up your life (Alright, yeah, fuck off then)
(Okay, good, fuck off)
Season’s Greetings

My friend told me of a secret
Told me that she blames herself
You invaded her magnificence
Put your hand over her mouth
Why was she all alone
Wearing her shirt that low
They said Boys will be boys
Deaf to the word no…
I will never let you rest
You broke all the bonds she gave ya
Time to pay the fucking rent
Boys Will Be Boys

There’s no Parliament worthy of this country’s side
All these pious fucks taking from the ’99
Now we’ll all endure what the sign told us we would

Beware of the dogs, beware of the dogs”
Beware Of The Dogs

All Lyrics: Stella Louise Donnelly – Downtown Music Publishing

MINI REVIEW

“The musically beguiling and lyrically empowering Beware Of The Dogs is by Australian Stella Donnelly, an artist and musician as unflinchingly honest as the day is long. This is an immense and timely record on so many levels, personally, politically and socially. The album’s title stands as Donnelly’s cautionary reminder that a smug sense of toxic masculinity, racist superiority and sexist entitlement has always existed and still exists lurking deep within the Australian psyche. And the damage this is doing to the country is profound.

Through subject matter and song Donnelly is determined whether directly or disarmingly to expose it all. Sensing their day of reckoning is coming and that reckoning will be a profound, she nails every single one of the country’s rotten racist and sexist banners to the mast for all to witness. And then proceeds to in both wry and withering fashion, lay waste to the country’s selfish and supercilious right wing leadership, an economically powerful yet socially unintelligent and emotionally immature group of men, allergic to truth and allergic to history”.James Stocker – Indie30.
