1-Speed Bike Someone Told Me Life Gets Easier in Your 50‘s

"We can talk about economists, doctors, managers, lawyers and bureaucrats, but that would be too fucking boring," Aidan Girt carps in a pause from the breakbeats he splatters on a White House wall. The drummer for chamber-rockers God Speed You! Black Emperor makes a spectacular ass out of himself in his breakcore excursion as 1-Speed Bike. You don‘t even need to listen to this album to understand what it‘s about-witness song titles like "If You Were a McDonald‘s, Your Lips Would Be an Orange Soda, but Your Dick Would Be a Shriveled-up Fry." However, he is a deft swordsman on the trapkit, where he instills a loose, duct-taped funk usually missing in the bludgeons of breakcore. While his politics are written above an elementary school urinal (i.e. "I‘m handsome like Donald Rumsfield"), Girt‘s music is a B-movie worth a thousand midnight showings.
