Thee Headcoatees - "Spineless Little Shit"
Matt over at You Ain't No Picasso is fond of posting songs that celebrate love. While I applaud his optimism, let's not forget that messy break-ups can result in some great music as well. Beck's Sea Change immediately comes to mind, as does the most recent Nicolai Dunger album.
One angry, two-minute addition to this genre was contributed about a decade ago by Thee Headcoatees (with Holly Golightly!), who were a side-project of the Billy Childish-led garage outfit Thee Headcoats. Titled "Spineless Little Shit," the song is basically a bitter outburst toward the vocalist's soon to be former lover. It's a fuzzy garage/punk number, and it's straight to the point.
Thee Headcoatees - Spineless Little Shit
How's that for some venom, eh? I'd hate to be the guy on the receiving end of this little ditty.
This song originally appeared as a 7" single, but was later released on a CD compilation of Thee Headcoatees material titled Sisters of Suave. It appears to be out of print, but there are some used copies for $25 at Amazon. You can hear more from the band at this fan-made MySpace page.
