Free MP3: Pete Fij (Adorable) & Terry Bickers (House of Love), ‘I Don’t Give a Shit About You’

This week not only brings news of a 3CD reissue from The House of Love, but new music, too, from the band’s guitarist, Terry Bickers, in the form of “I Don’t Give a Shit About You,” the very radio-unfriendly debut track from Pete Fij and Terry Bickers, his collaboration with Pete Fijalkowski of early ’90s shoegazers Adorable.

The track — which you can stream and/or download below, via Creation Records: Doing It For the Kids — is the first to emerge from the duo’s full-length debut, expected to arrive in Spring 2013.

Of the song, Fijalkowski says:

“Once you look beyond the cussing, it’s a tender lost-love song. I used to always steer away from swearing in songs in my younger days, but in this song it feels justified and essential. There’s a tension I like with the actual words and Terry’s lovely harmonies — we’re like a foul-mouthed Simon & Garfunkel.”

Adds Bickers:

“It was my least favorite song out of all the candidates for our album in rehearsals, but during the recording process it evolved way beyond my expectations. After the initial backing was recorded a lot of extra ideas came along and it was a really enjoyable process adding these and developing the song into what it is now. This experience reminded me that if we keep open to things, give them our best what we encounter may surprise us! The song is in part a homage to the Velvet Underground with a bit of Dr John’s ‘Gris Gris’ thrown in and for me that’s part of it’s appeal.”

As the duo also notes, “those of you who are swear-averse might want to give this one a miss due to the explicit nature of the lyrics as suggested by the title — but as you’re already reading this, we’ve probably already offended you — sorry.”
