COVID-19 Tentacle ‘Boomer Remover’ Song by Tomachi

The Tentacle of Covid-19 EP – 5 tracks by Tomachi

Boomer Remover COVID-19 Tentacle Boomer Remover COVID-19 Tentacle (listen at tomachi.tv)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Tomachi has been hard at work “Spreading Rumours” 散布谣言* with this release. A song about not wanting to get a virus. About asking Xi Jinping if I can have my spleen and kidney back. And in support of the Mongolians and Uyghurs in East Turkestan (Xi Jiang province)

Chloe Swarbrick’s widely syndicated “OK Boomer” parliament audio-grab comment just got spread a little wider: Now the comment marks the beginning of the latest single by Glen Eden based artist Tomachi, a groovy blues-funk dirge, which features a cover of a dope old Queens of the Stone Age track done as an instrumental.

About Communist Leaders

Put your kidneys in the air!

Can I have my kidney back?

It makes a dig at Chinese boss Xi Jinping by asking by name “Can I have my spleen back? And my Kidney?” (full lyrics)

The song is also a sign of solidarity from me to the Uyghurs opressed ethnic group, the latest culture to be banned by China. It contains a Tuvan throat singing sample of Mongolian metal group The Hu. Which is largely because China recently banned both of the languages.  To keep all this quiet China has paid Turkey $50 billion in hush money! Astonishing.

Beijing had secretly requested the extradition of Uyghur dissident Enver Turdi in 2016 and Turkish authorities subsequently harassed him. NPR also reported in March on “China’s long arm” in Turkey and how Turkish authorities urged a Uyghur activist “not to speak out against China.”

“It’s likely China will want to put out a hit on me. Hence I have contacted parliament so  they can be on notice that I am now a honeypot. A mine canary. If I die, this is a signal that parliament has been compromised.” – says Tomachi.

There are at least 6 reasons this track is likely to be banned by the Chinese Army. Tomachi says the video he is planning to have large provocative text, and a never-before seen (this century) photo of Tiananmen Square massacre, showing the fleshy burnt rubble of slaughtered protesters the day after, vocal samples of Martin Luther King speech, references to organ harvesting, and a reminder that in NZ we prefer to give our kidneys to people willingly not by force. Put your kidneys in the air!

Lyrics

Shout outs to East Turkestan

I don’t want to get a virus – I don’t want to get a virus I don’t want
You, to give it to me, aw hell go sue me, or maybe sue Xi Jinping
Spreading rumours, baby boomer remover

Boomer remover boomer remover boomer remover, baby
Boomer remover boomer remover boomer remover, baby
Don’t give it to me I don’t want to get a virus
I don’t want, to get a virus, I don’t want

Take your blanket and go, go! I don’t want to get a virus
I don’t want, to get a virus I don’t want
You, to give it to me, aw hell go sue me, or maybe sue Xi Jinping
Spreading rumours, can I have my spleen back and my kidney?

Help I can’t breath, I got that COVID-19 tentacle upon me
I won’t sneeze, pass the d’s please, government beneficiary
I can’t sleep, cos I got that tentacle of COVID-19 upon me
Help I can’t breath, I got that COVID-19 tentacle upon me
I won’t sneeze, pass the d’s please, government beneficiary
I can’t sleep, Uyghurs! Uyghurs!
We can do it if we try!

Cos a kidney is something you’d wanna give to
Somebody you love not somebody like you
Xi Jinping! I had a dream of baby Uyghurs
Cos a kidney is something you’d wanna give to
Somebody you love not somebody like you
I had a dream of baby Uyghurs playing in the street
That’s the thing about communist leaders
I have a dream, I got that COVID-19 tentacle upon me

Can I have my spleen back and my Kidney?

Brothers I have a dream today!
COVID-19 tentacle upon me
Xi Jinping, I had a dream of baby Uyghurs
Put your kidneys in the air!
Put your kidneys in the air!
Put your kidneys in the air!

Covid – No Way – I don’t want.

Take your blanket and go, go! I don’t want to get a virus
I don’t want to get a virus I don’t want
You, to give it to me, aw hell go sue me, or maybe sue Xi Jinping
Spreading rumours

Can I have my spleen back and my kidney?
Boomer remover boomer remover boomer remover, baby
Boomer remover boomer remover boomer remover, baby

The World’s Worst Ringtone Ever

It gives me some odd pleasure to announce the dubious release of a random experiment in sound:  This is a “polyphonic ringtone” (General MIDI file): piece-of-shit-ringtone-2020.mid

The ringtone is supposed to sound like insane baboons are attacking a MIDI drumkit. While I did make a score for this, just to see what this would look like, please don’t ever try to play this sheet music. It’s not the Black Page Drum Solo or anything. It’s more like…. insane baboons wailing away…:

Scores for Tomachi’s debut album The Hotel Vermont Sessions + Faticle

Here are some music scores in PDF format from some tracks off my first album* back in 2005. and one that will be on the next all going to plan: today is the internet debut of a demo for an unfinished unreleased track that never made the cut. Faticle was the working title for many years (audio on this SoundCloud below was recorded in 2004. Currently writing and recording some lyrics for this – Covid-19 Tentacle is likely the new name after the rap is put down, but it’s instrumental for now!
