I almost picked “Build High” by the Pixies for today–as I’m still dealing with replacing my backyard fence–but instead I thought I’d take a different route to a song that might reference home improvement… (And I would totally do this in my yard, given opportunity and my own dinosaur.) Anyway, I hope your Labour Day is labour free, and enjoy some Electric Six!…
Hi Guys! I wrote a really short drabble for a good
friend of mine Lola who’s awesome at singing Gay Bar by Electric Six (here’s the link, it’s really awesome!) and then I figured I could easily transform
it into mmfd fic. @bitchy-broken thank you for all the tips xx
I hope you
“You’re next, guys” a lad with shabby hair smiled at Rae
and Archie as he rushed past them waving
Rae glanced at Archie who was biting his bottom lip.
“We’ll smash them, right?” She chuckled nervously, “We’ll smash them and
they’ll be begging for more!”She nodded once as if to make sure she was still
“I can’t do it” Archie admitted looking everywhere but
“What do you mean you can’t do it?” she shot her eyes
to his looking for any hint of amusement but didn’t find any. “Archie stop
being such a prick, you were the one who challenged me and you were part of a
deal, you can’t expect me now to do it on my own!” She fumed throwing her hands
in the air.
“Sorry, I just can’t… they all know I’m gay, it would
be so awkward… I’m not that bold.” He replied shyly and started biting his
“Archie…” she sighed knowing well in that case she
couldn’t force him to do it. “But…”she raised her eyebrows studying her
reflection in the nearest mirror, “look how ridiculous I look… I can’t go and
show myself like that being on my own!”
“Nonsense, you’ll be brilliant! I know you can and
will rock out!” he smiled thinly at her and quickly pecked her cheek “I’ll be
watching you with the gang”, he shouted and fled disappearing into the crowd.
That’s how Rae ended up standing in the corner of the
pub on a small step during an open mic night in nothing but freaking high
heels, ridiculously short skirt and tighter than a camels
arse in a sandstorm corset that was making her jugs almost spill
to fuck this shit up… no biggie’ she scoffed rolling her eyes and
spotted Archie’s embarrassed face. ‘You
left me here all alone. I’ll make you suffer’ she thought and took a deep
“You ready?” the same shabby-haired lad asked.
“As I’ll ever be” she nodded letting out the air from
her burning lungs.
Once Rae heard the intro she focused her eyes on
Archie and put the mic close to her mouth
smiled sarcastically at him then smirked singing the next part
“I wanna take you to a gay bar,
I wanna take you to a gay bar,
I wanna take you to a gay bar, gay bar, gay bar.”
The whole pub cheered and started to clap their hands
trying to be as much in the rhythm as all the snakebites, vodka and other lemon
hooch’s in their veins let them be.
Rae was swaying her hips singing the song never taking
her eyes off Archie. The fucker was uncomfortable as hell but it was a good
thing. Fucking amazing actually! He was the one who made her sing that
particular song in that so-called sexy outfit so a little bit of awkwardness
was welcome as fuck!
The music stopped for a bit and Rae grinned at Archie
who was crimson red; they both knew what was coming next. She lowered her head
a little and smirked looking at him through her eyelashes.
“I’ve got something to put in you” she sang and
Archie looked at his hands blushing more even though it seemed to be
“I’ve got something to put in you,
At the gay bar, gay bar, gay bar.
Rae spun around and took a deep breath to ease her
nerves a little; well, as deep as she could in this sodding corset.
“You’re a superstar, at the gay bar”
She finished the song and took a bow making sure her
cleavage stayed in position. She took a
deep breath and finally dared to look up
at the audience before leaving the stage; they were giving her standing ovation,
cheering and catcalling. Some of them were openly and unashamedly ogling her.
Jesus! She needed to change her clothes like right away!
omg so. i downloaded firealpaca and decided to try colouring something digitally for honestly the first time in about 7 years and the result is….. good?? surprisingly? this is a bit scruffy i know but im feeling a lot more confident about the whole thing and im gonna try and do this more often. i listened to a lot of electric six while drawing this and it was a good choice
lmao i couldnt choose a background so!!! have both!!
‘k going to go into detail ‘cuz almost 6 years of love deserves more & i havent gushed in a while
/10: 9 - like even now probably about 85% of their stuff is still extremely fun to listen to, even after largely rejecting rock music. Probably the main reason they’re not a 10 is the three consecutive kickstarters makes me want to denounce them. (also, tbh, I didn’t like their latest album that much, but i’m not about to hold that against them) Favourite album: I’ve had phases with all of them. It’s hard to say. Probably Senor Smoke. But then there’s Mustang, and Flashy, and Kill, and Zodiac (my favourite for years), and all of them Favourite song: Currently, “Boy or Girl?” (i randomly got it in my head this week and it hasn’t left since) If i’ve seen them live (and if so, how many times): Twice (and a Dick Valentine acoustic show once). All three were amazing, and I still having to regret passing the last time up. Time/place/person they remind me of: Again, each album takes me back to a different time, cuz of how long they’ve stuck with me. Human Zoo, though, reminds me the most of moving here and being a naive freshman, but maybe cuz that’s quite recent. How I discovered them: I remembered their hits, of course, from when I was small, and for some reason also loving “Dance Commander”. I decided on a whim to check up on what they’d done recently in 2010 (at the time, Zodiac) and instantly fell in love. That album blew me away.
