about

‘Can’t Stop the Havelots’ - lyrically, is a reaction to the rampant corruption, avarice and greed in society, a plea for greater understanding of one another regardless of social strata and a reprioritization of what’s truly meaningful, & fulfilling in life.

Musically, I wanted to make a ‘rump shaker’. It is Beck-informed in its folk-rock/hip-hop balance, Led Zeppelins ‘South Bound Suarez’ and Q Tip’s track ‘Breath & Stop’ influenced the rhythm.

‘Can’t Stop the Havelot’s’ was the track that took the longest time to come together out of all the tracks on the album. It was the tune chosen to use as an educational device in bettering in my productions skills. So as a result, a lot of time was spent on exploring different sonic options / techniques. In addition, I was venturing into newer sonic landscapes, using both programmed beats with acoustic live performance drums.
Adrian Popovich (mixer) tamed this songs 100 + tracks – it’s a beast that bangs.

lyrics

CAN’T STOP THE HAVELOTS Music & Lyrics by Colin Wylie

THOSE THINGS THAT TURN YOU ON,
SIRENS IN THE SONG, THEY SING THEIR LOVE FOR YOU
(CAN’T STOP, WON’T STOP, UNTIL YOU GET ENOUGH)
THOSE THINGS THAT SPUR YOU ON, LIKE DIAMONDS IN THE SUN,
THEY PLAY THEIR TRICKS ON YOU

THE HAVELOTS AND THE HAVENOTS, WE’RE JUST PEOPLE,
(NOW THAT YOU GOT EVERYTHING THAT YOU WANT,
HAVE YOU GOT EVERYTHING THAT YOU WANT?)
YOU MAY HAVE NOT, YOU MAY HAVE A LOT, YOU FEEL CHEATED
WE WERE TOLD A CROCK, IF YOU STRIVE A LOT YOU’D ACHIEVE IT

THEY PROMISED A REAL HOAX THAT IF YOU’D YIELD YOUR SOUL
FOR A LIVLIHOOD
THE LIE THAT YOU LIVE THE MOST, GRIEVES THE GHOST RIGHT INSIDE OF YOU.

LORD I LOVE YA LOT,
YOU LIVE YOUR WORLD WAY WORLD AND I”LL LIVE MINE
THAT’LL BE SURE TO MAKE YOU CYNICS SMILE
I’LL GIVE THAT CREDIT RIGHT BACK TO YOU
PLUS PRIME INTEREST ON AND YOUR INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITY

YOU LIVE YOUR WORLD WAY WORLD AND I”LL LIVE MINE
DIAMOND RINGS AND FINE NEW CLOTHES; REAL FAST LIVIN
SPEND A LIFETIME PAYING FOR ANY OF THOSE
