…Yeah more TEN BENSON Stuff!
by Walter Price
Hey hyperbole police, stack those sugar cakes high because here comes a fact you can bank on— After all their years of RnR service Ten Benson has just dropped a brand new snarling Christmas single called “Stuff” and its the pointed finger at all the commercialism saturating Christmas/Holiday Season. And it just may be their finest track in years. Nam nam nam…
Stuff to decorate me
Stuff to titillate me
Stuff to help inflate me
Help me to not hate me
Stuff that doesn’t mean that much
Stuff you see but cannot touch
Stuff that’s see-thru, stuff with heels
Stuff glides by on shining wheels
Stuff. Stuff. Stuff
Yeah more stuff…
Not only is “Stuff” brimming with Ten Benson’s signature swampy low-slung brand of rock n roll, but dare I say I hear a bit of the DNA of Marc Bolan coursing through its veins. Yes, I’m almost certain of it! So during this time of glitzy merriment, ask yourself a question— How much stuff do you really need? Not that fucking much it turns out.
So as you’re drunk and high on tinsel and pie, you can loudly stream the crunchy new Ten Benson Stuff here at the GTC.
