If you weren’t able to make it to our last appearance at Illicit Ink’s Underground night at The Bongo Club — or if you were, but want to savour Steph and The Professor’s music in its full beauty and complexity — here’s the full studio version of Wrong Word Write Time.
Ricky recommends that you listen to the whole thing, but we’ve also included the individual songs: the signature Intro; the song for (smoking) kids, Moon Zoom Zoo; the emotional centrepiece, Moonbeams; the face-melting finalé Pete’s Pa; and whatever the heck The Waffle Song is.
Stay tuned for one-off tracks, and Das Brooklinburgh Liederbuch and The Last Days Of The Prussian Empire!
Wurdz Boy was super-nervous performing Wrong Word Write Time without a net and the rest of Nerd Bait. But fortunately, there was no resisting Steph’s vocals and Prof Paul’s sounds and animations. Another good response from the crowd at Illicit Ink Underground at Edinburgh’s Bongo Club.
Here’s the evidence, thanks again to Myra’s patented Steadihand(TM). A trip to the moon! Smoking kids! No dancing by the Prof and Wurdz Boy! Enjoy!
A lead single, a rhythmic rap, some tinkling in a smoke-filled jazz-opera club, avant synth noise, and… whatever the hell The Waffle Song is. What does it all mean?
It means Nerd Bait will be premiering their latest short-form musical, Wrong Word Write Time (about a US Air Force pilot suffering the effects of aphasia) as part of Illicit Ink’s Underground night at The Bongo Club on Sunday, 4 May at The Bongo Club in Edinburgh.
