Go Robot
Red Hot Chili Peppers Lyrics


I called the teacher 'cause I wanted to confess it now
Can I make the time for me to come and get it blessed somehow
She spoke to me in such a simple and decisive tone
Her sweet admission left me feeling in position from

I don't take these things so personal
Anymore, anymore
I don't think it's irreversible
Anymore
Somebody hooted and they hollered can I buy a vowel
Don't let her catch you in the act of throwing in the towel
And when it's not as it appears to be, the flagrant foul
Can I put my fingers in your mouth before you start to growl

I don't think that it's so terrible
Anymore, anymore
I don't think that it's unbearable
Anymore

Tell me now, I know that it just won't stop
You will find your flow when you go robot
I want to thank you and spank you upon your silver skin
Robots don't care where I've been
You've got to choose it to use it, so let me plug it in
Robots are my next of kin

Sometimes I feel like I'm a sentimental trooper
She cried so hard, you know she looked like Alice Cooper

I don't think that it's so personal
Anymore, anymore
I don't think it's irreversible
Anymore

Tell me now, I know that it just won't stop
You will find your flow when you go robot

I want to thank you and spank you upon your silver skin
Robots don't care where I've been
You've got to choose it to use it, so let me plug it in
Robots are my next of kin

I'm kissing high and low
Our bodies like two dominoes
Can I come and get you when I hit you in your party clothes
Let's turn this cosplay holiday, what we obey
And now we're welcoming each other to this cabaret

I don't think that it's so terrible
Anymore, anymore
I don't think that it's unbearable
Anymore

Tell me now, I know that it just won't
Stop
You will find your flow when you go robot
I want to thank you and spank you upon your silver skin
Robots don't care where I've been
You've got to choose it to use it, so let me plug it in
Robots are my next of kin

@Santiago Torres Fernández Sin embargo, ¿qué pasa con el lado serio de los Red Hot Chili Peppers? Jugar y no trabajar hace que Jack sea un imbécil aburrido ... ¿Le preocupa a Kiedis que algunas personas no puedan ver más allá de las caras tontas en sus fotos, las camisetas obscenas, toda la loca, loca, rizada, mamá, estamos todos locos? ¿jerga? ¿Que algunas personas podrían no tomar en serio los Red Hot Chili Peppers?

"Pero es como si la gente fuera a ver tocar a Jimi Hendrix y saliera del concierto sin nada más que decir que '¡Guau, ese tipo puede tocar con los dientes!'", Dice. “Este es un negocio de espectáculos, y estamos aquí para entretener. Nos gusta entretener a la gente. El valor visual está ahí, pero hay mucho más que eso. Las personas que estén realmente interesadas o preocupadas lo descubrirán eventualmente ”.

Por otro lado, por supuesto, algunas personas toman los Red Hot Chili Peppers casi demasiado en serio. Hasta el punto de querer ser ellos. No, no estoy hablando de Faith No More: solo su cantante, Mike Patton.

Le pido a Kiedis directamente su opinión sobre el asunto: ¿Mike Patton te estafó, te quitó la cuerda y se hundió, o qué?

"Sí", dice, sin dudarlo. “Mi baterista dice que lo secuestrará y le afeitará el cabello y le cortó uno de sus pies. Solo para que se vea obligado a encontrar un estilo propio.

¿Es la amargura genuina aquí, o simplemente otra broma?

“Solía realmente molestarme. Pensé, ¡qué lastima si la gente tiene la idea de que realmente lo estoy estafando! Especialmente en el Reino Unido, donde Faith No More es mucho más conocido que nosotros. En Estados Unidos, es una historia diferente, las personas son conscientes de la profunda influencia que tuvimos en ellos.

“Pero después de que se me revolvió el estómago por un tiempo, decidí aceptarlo. El es solo un niño. Además, sin su pie izquierdo tendrá que cambiar ...

EN AMÉRICA acaban de recibir un disco de oro por 'Mother's Milk'. Es solo ahora que los Chiles han comenzado a incursionar seriamente en los mercados británico o europeo. Este mes regresan al Reino Unido por un grupo de anticuados.

¿Qué tan importante es para la banda tener éxito en este lado del océano que nombraron después de una compañía discográfica?

“En todos los lugares del mundo en los que vamos, nos esforzamos al máximo y jugamos con todas nuestras noches. Eso es básicamente lo que tenemos para ofrecer a Gran Bretaña. La forma en que la industria se estableció allí, la única forma de cruzar es ir allí y jugar. Es bueno exponer lo que tiene para ofrecer al mundo entero ".

¿Realmente le gusta en el país de Ye Olde?

"Para ser francamente honesto, Inglaterra no es nuestro lugar favorito para ir, admite sin culpa.

“No es porque no seamos tan conocidos como en Estados Unidos: es el clima que no nos gusta; y está muy lejos, y la comida no es muy buena, tienden a cocinar demasiado las verduras ".

Adopta un acento inglés burlón y amargo: "Ya sabes, el pastel de carne y riñón no es mi favorito ...

"Creo que tarde o temprano, sin embargo, es inevitable que conquistaremos Inglaterra, así como Escocia, Irlanda y el resto del mundo".

Esto sin una pizca de un signo de exclamación en su voz.

“Es muy parecido al proceso a largo plazo de hacer el amor con alguien: comienzas con los juegos previos, los besas y les chupas el cuello y excitas sus áreas sensoriales con la punta de los dedos, con los primeros registros.

“Tal vez comienzas a darles cabeza con el tercer disco, luego finalmente lo deslizas por el cuarto. Eso es esencialmente lo que hemos hecho con nuestra carrera hasta este momento.

“'Mother's Milk' fue increíblemente bien recibida en Estados Unidos. Básicamente, todavía estamos involucrados en la sección de juegos preliminares con el resto del mundo, ya que realmente no obtuvieron nuestros dos primeros registros ".

SEXO ... TODO vuelve al sexo con este chico. Casi tan pronto como nos conocimos, Kiedis me dijo que estaba en una 'dieta sexual'. Y tiene las mordeduras de amor, uno a cada lado de la yugular, para demostrarlo.

Tengo una nueva novia. Tiene 18 años y exige una actividad sexual rigurosa varias veces al día ".

Para aquellos de nosotros que necesitamos saber, la dieta sexual de Kiedis consiste en "alimentos que no engordan, mucha proteína y mucho ejercicio antes y después de comer. Básicamente, simplemente no puede permitirse el lujo de tener una onza de grasa porque una dieta sexual es para el rendimiento.

"Pero también es por estética: es una modelo y es bastante perfecta en su estructura física".

Entonces, ¿es esto lurve, Anthony?

Amor es una palabra que a veces se toma demasiado en serio ”, dice enigmáticamente. “La gente tiene miedo de decir que ama a alguien, pero el hecho es que si la amo. No me voy a casar con ella y no voy a dedicar toda mi vida a ella, porque necesito dedicar tiempo a mí mismo y a mi música.

“Pero ella entiende. Acabo de romper con la chica con la que viví durante dos años. Salir de la sartén e ir directamente al fuego sería una estupidez en este momento. Hemos decidido que seremos francamente honestos acerca de nuestros sentimientos, en riesgo de lastimarnos mutuamente.

“Pero la amo y ella me ama a mí. Ella es el genio sexual más grande que he encontrado en los últimos 10 años ... "

HACE UNA pose poscoital y enciende un cigarrillo. Excluyendo el sexo, fumar es su único vicio restante. “Mi guitarrista (John Frusciante) es un fumador muy ávido, y realmente ama la calidad que le da a mi voz, la ronquera.

"Pero es el tipo de persona con el corazón roto al descubrir que John Waters, su cineasta favorito, había dejado de fumar a la edad de 44 años".

Érase una vez, por supuesto, fumar un cigarrillo era el menor de los problemas de Kiedis. El abuso de heroína, el alcoholismo, ambos habían amenazado con apoderarse de él durante gran parte de la carrera de siete años de la banda. Luego, su guitarrista, amigo y conspirador en el crepúsculo mundial de la drogadicción, Hillel Slovak, murió.

"Al igual que yo, Hillel tenía la enfermedad de la drogadicción", dice Kiedis, sin inmutarse. “No murió de una sobredosis; Murió de una enfermedad.

“Nadie quería aceptar que este joven con tanto que ofrecer se había ido, ya sabes, desapareció en un segundo.

“Pero de una manera extraña, encontramos fuerza en eso. Me obligó a tomar una decisión. Podría unirme a Hillel o podría tratar de terminar mi vida.

“He estado completamente sin alcohol y drogas durante 21 meses. Quiero decir, completamente. No bebo ni uso más.

“Pero no lo hago solo. Hillel intentó hacerlo solo y murió. Lo hago con la ayuda de otros adictos que han limpiado. Esa es la única forma en que sé cómo lidiar con eso ".

EMI lanza un nuevo sencillo de Red Hot Chili Peppers, 'Taste The Pain', el tercero de la excelente colección 'Mother's Milk', para unirse a los espectáculos del Reino Unido.

Ya se filmó un nuevo video, dirigido por Alex Winter (el tipo rubio y lleno de hierba en 'La excelente aventura de Bill y Ted'), y presenta, dice Kiedis con obvia satisfacción, “algunas imágenes muy retorcidas de dolor y realidad brutal. Es imposible de describir. También hay una sensación de surrealismo en todo esto ”.

Cuando no está devorando a su nueva novia, Kiedis dice que le gusta pasar su tiempo libre leyendo (Bukowski es un gran favorito, como lo son Capote, Hesse, Bach); escuchando música (“Sex Packets 'de Digital Underground es un favorito actual, me dice).

Pero sobre todo, tiene relaciones sexuales, insiste. Bueno, supongo que es un hobby ...

Mientras sigo discutiendo su dieta sexual y todo el ejercicio involucrado, pregunto con qué frecuencia Kiedis levanta pesas.

No, no pesas ", dice.

Me veo sorprendido ¿De dónde sacaste esos brazos grandes, le pregunté?

"Sexo", respondió.

¡De ninguna manera! ¿Qué hace él, llevarlos sobre su cabeza antes de meterlos en la cama?

Por fin, se permite una pequeña risa, divertido por mi resoplido y soplo, mi envidia e incredulidad.

“El único ejercicio que hago, a menos que me obligue a hacer flexiones, es el sexo y el escenario. La etapa es el escenario cardiovascular, ya sabes; una hora y media corriendo todas las noches. Ese es un ejercicio perfecto.

“Y el sexo. Te sorprenderias. Quiero decir, si te mantienes por encima de una chica por un período de tiempo ... ya sabes, utilizando tu pelvis o lo que sea. ¿No te sientes emocionado después de tener relaciones sexuales? pregunta, enfrenta una máscara perfecta de sinceridad.

Afuera, ha dejado de llover ...

1990 junio Kerrang (292)



Nota: ¡Este es el primer Kerrang de RHCP! cubierta, creo. ¡He visitado un sitio que tiene la mayoría de Kerrangs! aparece en la lista y esta es la primera que puedo ver (podría ser una de las ediciones faltantes que hay antes, pero esta es también la portada de Kerrang más temprana que tengo, por lo que mi dinero sería la primera).

Gracias a Kathie Davis por la transcripción.

En un día no tan caluroso en Los Ángeles, ANTHONY KIEDIS, vocalista de la banda de Hardcore, crujiente de huesos, psicodélico y funk sexual del cielo, también conocida como RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS. Kiedis explica por qué el vocalista de Faith No More, Mike Patton, pronto podría tener menos un pie izquierdo, por qué la nueva novia de Kiedis es 'el mayor genio sexual' que ha encontrado en los últimos 10 años y por qué conquistar Inglaterra será como 'el proceso a largo plazo de hacer el amor ". Esté seguro: lleve un paquete de condones a los conciertos de la próxima semana y asegúrese de saber ...

 

¿QUIÉN TE ESTÁ FUNCIONANDO?

 

Lo siento , señoritas, pero cuando él aparece en la puerta, inmediatamente me sorprende lo pequeño que es. En el escenario con los Red Hot Chili Peppers, Anthony Kiedis parece una de esas estatuas griegas clásicas; grandes, musculosos, grandes y colgantes.

En persona, sin embargo, el cantante con la original 'Hardcore, rompe huesos, psicodélico, banda de funk sexual del cielo' parece mucho más manejable. Tal vez cinco pies y ocho, cabello largo y liso del color del té, más joven que sus 27 años. Vestido con pantalones cortos (natch), camiseta y zapatillas de deporte. Aún con los grandes brazos musculosos sin embargo.

En cuanto a la willy? Bueno, él nunca me lo mostró, lo cual es una pena. Tal vez si lo hubiera hecho, podría haberlo demandado y haber ganado algo de dinero. Explica cómo ocurrió una situación similar ...

“Fue en el backstage después de un show y estaba cambiando y había una chica allí. Todos bromeábamos y nos reíamos juntos y cuando ella se fue, nadie tenía la impresión de que mi desnudez la perturbaba en el vestuario ”.

Sin embargo, en 24 horas, la niña, estudiante de la Universidad George Mason, en Virginia, había presentado una denuncia y Kiedis fue juzgado y condenado por delitos menores de "agresión sexual" y exposición indecente, pero está apelando contra la agresión sexual. cargar.

Ella afirmó que Kiedis le había colgado la polla en la cara. ¿Lo había hecho él?

"No", dice bruscamente. “No soy ese tipo de persona. Soy una persona amigable y muy divertida. El hecho de que me declararon culpable de delitos menores y me dieron una multa nominal prácticamente indicó a mi abogado y al suyo que era un montón de mierda ".

A diferencia de la voz que canta, que rapeó, ladró y cantó a través de cuatro álbumes con los Red Hot Chili Peppers, la voz que habla es ecuánime, casi monótona, o lo sería si lo que tenía que decir no fuera tan interesante. Nos encontramos en otro día típicamente candente en Los Ángeles.

En realidad estoy mintiendo. Estaba meando con lluvia, arrojándola. Simplemente me gustó la línea.

"Me encanta la lluvia", me dice Kiedis, mirando por la ventana de mi habitación de hotel. “Es muy importante para Los Ángeles; La contaminación del aire es tan mortal aquí que sin la lluvia moriríamos. Entonces, ya sabes, tenemos mucha suerte de tener lluvia hoy ”.

Nos desviamos para discutir el medio ambiente. Kiedis dice que necesita toda la ayuda que pueda obtener. No discuto Nos sentamos allí mirando pensativos. Entonces la conversación se dirige nuevamente a un terreno más seguro; Más delitos sexuales.

En marzo, actuando durante la fiesta de primavera de MTV en Daytona Beach, Florida, el bajista y, junto con Kiedis, cofundador de los Red Hot Chili Peppers, Michael 'Flea' Balzary y el baterista Chad Smith, fueron arrestados por guardabosques después saltaron del escenario con gran alboroto y Flea supuestamente arrojó a una mujer joven sobre su hombro mientras Smith la azotaba.

Ambos enfrentan cargos por agresión, con Flea enfrentando cargos adicionales de 'conducta desordenada' y 'solicitud para cometer un acto antinatural y lascivo'.

Kiedis sigue con los labios apretados sobre el tema. Está claro que él piensa que todo se ha desvanecido de toda proporción. Tal vez si hubiera sido solo un concierto de Red Hot Chili Pepper en lugar de un programa de variedades, la chica lo habría entendido, tal vez incluso lo habría pedido ...

"La mayoría de las personas que vienen a nuestros shows entienden que hay un elemento humorístico en lo que hacemos y no necesariamente tiene la intención de ofender a nadie", dice Kiedis.

"La primera enmienda de la Constitución de los Estados Unidos te da la libertad de expresión y la libertad, ya sabes, de hacer lo que quieras desde el escenario".

Díselo al PMRC, le digo. O el gobernador del estado de Minnesota que está tratando de introducir una ley de mayores de 21 años para todos los conciertos de las grandes ligas en el estado, ya sea que el lugar venda alcohol o no.

"Ese es un concepto terrible", dice Kiedis, sacudiendo la cabeza. “Espero que fallen miserablemente. La creatividad siempre ha sido amenazada por ciertas facciones derechistas de la sociedad. Pero nunca han tenido éxito y no veo por qué deberían hacerlo ahora.

SIN EMBARGO, EL último álbum de Chilis, 'Mother's Milk', se completó con pegatinas de 'Lenguaje explícito' pegadas en su manga.

"Eso no me molesta en absoluto", dice. “Nuestras letras son muy explícitas, ya sea sobre sexo o amistad, o amor por la vida en general. Si quieren informar al público comprador que es explícito, no tengo problemas con eso ”.

Sin embargo, cuando una gran cadena de tiendas estadounidenses quería obtener 50,000 copias del álbum, se negaron cuando dijeron la manga (el torso desnudo de una mujer joven que acunaba las cuatro figuras en miniatura de la banda en sus delgados brazos).

La compañía discográfica de la banda, EMI, resolvió el problema rediseñando la manga para agrandar los cuerpos, con el fin de ocultar más de los "senos de la madre". 50,000 registros después, Kiedis dice que se siente cómodo con la decisión y niega cualquier implicación de venderse. Yuk! Palabras horribles.

“El arte de los Red Hot Chili Peppers es, ante todo, el de nuestra música, y nunca cambiamos nuestra música como un compromiso para los deseos o gustos de nadie. Que deberíamos tener que ampliarnos en el registro no es realmente un gran problema. Es lo que hay dentro lo que cuenta ”, señala pragmáticamente.

“Estas cosas son tan arbitrarias, de todos modos. Nadie levantó ningún alboroto sobre nuestras camisetas ... "(Las dos más famosas son el legendario número de calcetines y la camisa menos conocida para masturbarse).

"Es un dibujo de Madonna masturbándose, y está soñando con los Red Hot Chili Peppers", explica Kiedis con la cara seria.

No se sabe si Madonna la ha visto realmente.

“Creo que si lo vio, quiere uno, ese es el tipo de chica que es. Quiero decir, no creo que ella haya negado alguna vez masturbarse. O negó masturbarse con los Red Hot Chili Peppers, para el caso ... "

@Panteroid Bio Mike Bone, 42, former copresident of PolyGram’s Mercury Records, lost his job Nov. 1, two days before allegations surfaced in the Los Angeles Timesabout his alleged misconduct in the office. In July 1990, while president of PolyGram’s Island Records, he allegedly propositioned his then administrative assistant, Lori Harris, 28, at a company party, and when he was rebuffed made it clear that her job was in jeopardy. The next morning he fired her. ”His attitude was ‘That was pleasure; this is business,”’ says Harris, who filed a harassment suit against Bone and Island Records in July, charging violation of the New York State human rights laws. ”I view him as kind of pathetic at this point,” she says, noting that she was unemployed for six months and still has found only part-time work. ”What’s ridiculous is that no one stopped him. Island Records and PolyGram don’t care what happened to me. They moved him from president of a company where he had been accused of harassing and firing his assistant to president of a new company (Mercury) where no one knew what he’d done. He got to start over.” Bone, who has denied Harris’ charges in the past, referred a reporter to his lawyer, who said Bone would not respond.

Jeff Aldrich, 41, recently RCA’s senior vice president of A&R, was let go in December 1990 as a result of multiple sexual harassment complaints. At a convention in Scottsdale, Ariz., Aldrich reportedly made passes at several female employees, throwing one of them onto a bed and physically molesting her. ”Conventions are about teasing, sexual kind of stuff,” says an employee, ”but he was crossing the line. He was sticking his hand down blouses and up skirts. So anyway, we all get back from the convention Sunday and on Monday there’s a very weird vibe in the office. The woman had complained that she wanted him out of there, and they did an inquiry.” Says an RCA executive, ”When some double-digit number of women complained, we knew we had to fire him.” Aldrich is now an executive in A&R at Giant Records. A remorseful Aldrich confirmed that he was ”fired from RCA for an incident that happened at a convention that had something to do with sexual harassment.” A spokesman for Aldrich said it is ”important to know it was while he was inebriated,” and he has since entered a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program.

High-powered L.A. lawyer Abe Somer, 53, former head of the music department at the firm of Mitchell, Silberberg & Knupp, recently settled a harassment suit out of court. His former secretary, Phyllis Finkbeiner, complained that Somer instructed her to bring the office mail to his house, where he greeted her naked at the door. A former summer associate at the firm alleged similar treatment in an affidavit supporting the suit. At a poolside meeting at Somer’s home, she said, he told her, ”You seem a little uptight. If Mick Jagger and (producer) Richard Perry were sitting here, I don’t know if they’d be comfortable with you. If they wanted you to kiss them or give them a hand job, you just do it.” Managing partner Bill Cole says Somer no longer has an office at the firm but is retained on ”of counsel” status. Somer is now part of the legal department at Rondor Music Publishing Co.Somer’s attorney speculated that the allegations were ”hearsay from disgruntled former employees.”

These stories certainly imply that women are routinely abused in the music business. They also say that men can be fired if enough women bring charges against them, even though the charges are untested in any court or other formal proceeding. And now that several lawsuits have hit the headlines, it seems the music business has reached a point of no return. But will any changes in the acceptability of babeage translate into real power and freedom for women?

”If we maintain our fearfulness and keep quiet about this,” says a female former executive at a major label, ”things are not going to change.”

She’s afraid to give her name.

@Panteroid Bio Sexual Harassment: Music



Sexual Harassment: Music -- Our report on the state of the music industry

By Melissa Rawlins Updated December 06, 1991 at 05:00 AM EST



There’s a word for it in the music-video business, where male fantasies of young, compliant women are the very heart of commerce. ”That sexy-babe, bimbo kind of stuff that the labels always want,” says a woman who’s made rock videos for years, ”my friends and I in the industry refer to it as ‘babeage.’ It’s part of just an overwhelming predeliction for sleazy male behavior in this business.”

Babeage. What would rock & roll be without it? Just peek into the fantasy world of music videos. What you see isn’t real, but real people produce those videos, and the often graphic, violent sexuality they contain. So it’s no surprise that babeage is a buzzword. Insiders say that in the world of pop and rock-an insular world ruled by six major recording conglomerates, in which only one woman (Sylvia Rhone, chairman of Atco/East West) is at the top-sexual harassment is not just rampant but epidemic, more pervasive than in any other branch of entertainment.



Ugly stories come not just from the lowly but from people at all levels of the business. There’s Mary Cary, guitarist for Rosary, a female hard-rock band, describing a pawing studio owner who demanded sex in exchange for recording time. ”He told us that if we slept with him, he would get us a label deal, and he was just a sleazy little studio guy with no power.” And the notoriously raunchy band the Red Hot Chili Peppers, reversing the roles in an interview for Creem with journalist Nina Malkin, bombarded her with lewd questions about her sex life. (”They were just goofing,” their manager says.) At a radio industry convention last year, top radio consultant Randy Michaels hired a stripper, disguised as a waitress, to have her shirt ripped off during a panel on contemporary hit radio. And an executive at a major label made assignments to employees while playing pornographic tapes on his VCR — ”He did it just to humiliate us,” one woman said.

”The industry promotes the bimbo image very well,” says an ex-label executive, who left the business because of what she characterized as its unacceptably sexist environment. ”The man in music spends his day promoting bimbos on album covers, and the women in the office are viewed as just more of those bimbos. Not all men see it this way, obviously. But the violence is there. In this business, people are reduced to things, and it’s awful.”



That’s an attitude that often starts near the very top — in the offices, say, of an Abbey Konowitch, 40, who in the mid-’80s was vice president for video and artist development for Arista Records. In July 1987, Arista promoted a woman named Joanne Smat into Konowitch’s department, as national manager of artist development. Although several women alleged to Entertainment Weekly reporters that Konowitch verbally abused female coworkers, Smat is the only one willing to go on the record with charges. Because she has since married and left the music business to become an advertising executive, she no longer feels her career is threatened. Other sources, male and female, have confirmed Smat’s story but stressed that if Konowitch found out their names, their careers would be ruined.

”After a very short time it became apparent that there was a certain way Abbey operated, and that I was not going to be able to handle it,” says Smat. His method of operation, she says, included repeatedly asking such questions as ”Can I bite you?” ”Can I touch your thigh?” ”Can I bite your ass?” According to Smat, he predicted that she would sleep with him on a company trip to Maui. She decided to stay home. The day Konowitch began instructing an intern in ”shooting rubber bands at my ass,” Smat says, she was so fed up she walked out of the office.

She says she asked a female executive for advice and was sent to a vice president. He said he’d give her a transfer, effectively a demotion, to a secretarial position. In November 1987, she consulted lawyer Michael Holland.

”He knew of other cases where women had been physically fondled and the lawyers weren’t able to make (the charges) stick because of difficulties of proof,” she says. ”He basically said the law doesn’t work and you don’t have a choice.” ”I advised her that since she was considering other career options anyway, maybe she should just move on,” confirms Holland. Smat resigned in January 1988.

Konowitch declines to comment. His attorney denies Smat’s allegations and claims Arista has no record of any formal complaints or discussions of Smat’s charges. A woman who worked with Smat and Konowitch maintains, however, that there were several formal meetings between Smat and a top Arista manager. ”One of the vice presidents,” she says, ”called up every woman who worked with Abbey and said, ‘Does he really do these kinds of things?’ And all of us said yes. Their solution was to ask us if we wanted to transfer to other departments.”

”On a day-to-day basis Abbey would say gross things,” she says. ”If you asked him for a vacation day, he’d say, ‘Scratch my back and I’ll think about it.’ And he was serious. There were two ways you could handle it. You could just laugh or ignore it or swear at him, or you could really let it get to you. Joanne didn’t want to put up with it — and she shouldn’t have had to — and she complained.”

”Complaints were made by Joanne to me,” says Roy Lott, executive vice president and general manager of Arista Records. ”The situation was analyzed. I, and others, talked to various people. And we found no basis for taking any action against Abbey Konowitch.”

Konowitch’s career apparently has not been affected by any of the complaints. He is now senior vice president for music and talent at MTV, where he decides which bands’ videos get airtime. Last year he was selected as one of Entertainment Weekly‘s Power 101 (he was No. 25).

Other men in music facing harassment charges have fared less well.

Marko Babineau, 40, former general manager of the Geffen Records’ DGC label, resigned unexpectedly in September ”to be with his family.” On Nov. 14 his former assistant, Penny Muck, 28, filed suit against him for sexual harassment, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and assault and battery. She charged, among other things, that Babineau touched her breasts and buttocks, ejaculated on a magazine he had placed in front of her, placed his erect penis in her ear, and ordered her to clean up his semen. Other women who worked for Babineau have told similar tales. His attorney has not returned this magazine’s calls.

I called the teacher 'cause I wanted to confess it now
Can I make the time for me to come and get it blessed somehow
She spoke to me in such a simple and decisive tone
Her sweet admission left me feeling in position from
I don't take these things so personal
Anymore, anymore
I don't think it's irreversible
Anymore
Somebody hooted and they hollered can I buy a vowel
Don't let her catch you in the act of throwing in the towel
And when it's not as it appears to be, the flagrant foul
Can I put my fingers in your mouth before you start to growl
I don't think that it's so terrible
Anymore, anymore
I don't think that it's unbearable
Anymore
Tell me now, I know that it just won't stop
You will find your flow when you go robot
I want to thank you and spank you upon your silver skin
Robots don't care where I've been
You've got to choose it to use it, so let me plug it in
Robots are my next of kin
Sometimes I feel like I'm a sentimental trooper
She cried so hard, you know she looked like Alice Cooper
I don't think that it's so personal

Folks Lyric Meaning :

1. "... This '80s electro-infused song is about two lovers for whom the act of sexual intercourse has become a meaningless robotic engagement without feelings or emotions.

2."... Well, once in the interview, AK said that this album was insipred by a love that falls apart like an atom bang. So, I think, Anthony, tired of being in love that always ends and left him feel bad, so he wish he could be a robot, who wan't feel something like love or sad emothions etc. Robots don't care about feelings and emothions."

3. "...But looking at the lyrics I think the general sense of this song is that someone is falling in loving with a machine/robot rather than another human. The robot gives them everything they need. Maybe this is pointing towards our modern obsession with technology and social networks that are not so human."

4. "...the song is about changing, growing and settling in general as a person. The equation used for the song is change = the future = robots. "Robots" in this song represent a better future and positive change.

Change is tumultuous, stressful and scary. We become so afraid of change we never really have a clear vision of the future. The protagonist of this song is describing how he eventually found a way to cope with change, and how he came to terms with moving forward.

"I don't take these things so personal anymore/I don't think it's irreversible anymore."

The protag is obviously coping with a loss or some kind of heartache, and he seems to have some experience with these bad situations. He's realizing he doesn't have to sulk, ruminate or hate himself anymore. He's learning and growing up.

"Going robot" means to evolve. To become better. Not growing cold and emotionless, but "upgrading" yourself from your life experiences and becoming a stronger/smarter person and learning to adjust, accept and even manipulate change.

"Robots are my next of kin." He is embracing the future, even thanking it for the great things it will bring. Robots represent the future and the good things it can bring. He's happy and ready to accept the future, instead of being terrified of it."

I don't take these things so personal
Anymore, anymore
I don't think it's irreversible
Anymore

[Verse 2]
Somebody hooted and they hollered can I buy a vowel
Don't let her catch you in the act of throwing in the towel
And when it's not as it appears to be, the flagrant foul
Can I put my fingers in your mouth before you start to growl

[Pre-Chorus 2]
I don't think that it's so terrible
Anymore, anymore
I don't think that it's unbearable
Anymore

[Chorus]
Tell me now, I know that it just won't stop
You will find your flow when you go robot
I want to thank you and spank you upon your silver skin
Robots don't care where I've been
You've got to choose it to use it, so let me plug it in
Robots are my next of kin

[Verse 3]
Sometimes I feel like I'm a sentimental trooper
She cried so hard, you know she looked like Alice Cooper

[Pre-Chorus 3]
I don't think that it's so personal
Anymore, anymore
I don't think it's irreversible
Anymore

[Chorus]
Tell me now, I know that it just won't stop
You will find your flow when you go robot
I want to thank you and spank you upon your silver skin
Robots don't care where I've been
You've got to choose it to use it, so let me plug it in
Robots are my next of kin

[Verse 4]
I'm kissing high and low
Our bodies like two dominoes
Can I come and get you when I hit you in your party clothes
Let's turn this cosplay holiday, what we obey
And now we're welcoming each other to this cabaret

[Pre-Chorus 2]
I don't think that it's so terrible
Anymore, anymore
I don't think that it's unbearable
Anymore

[Chorus]
Tell me now, I know that it just won't
Stop
You will find your flow when you go robot
I want to thank you and spank you upon your silver skin
Robots don't care where I've been
You've got to choose it to use it, so let me plug it in
Robots are my next of kin
