    A/S/L, the debut EP from The Hillary Watts Riot, introduces the world to Freak Pop - Sonic Youth meets Hall & Oates, showered in Devo's pheromones. Nameless drones lay down funky drum and bass grooves, explosive guitar sonics, and dirty disco synth lines to back up their queen bee, Miss Hillary Watts.

    What the press is saying about The Hillary Watts Riot:

    “'Tube Top,' The Hillary Watts Riot: The first single off the band’s debut EP, 'A/S/L,' boasts perhaps the funkiest bass line in Kansas City. 'Tube Top' is a groovy, loungey song that moves into a Blondie-esque break, maintaining an unconventional but superior sense of musicianship throughout.”
    Michelle Bacon - The Kansas City Star

    “With a pinup doll look and sunglasses-at-night image, the pedal-heavy band kicks in your teeth with plenty of reverb and a chaotic sound. With glimpses of punk reflecting off the glitters of glam, the band’s sound bounces all over the place. 1990s sound bites bleed through the 1980s influences. Mixed with their witty banter, this band is entertainment at its best.”
    Joshua Hammond - The Deli

about

The Hillary Watts Riot Kansas City, Missouri

Hard grooves, off-kilter rhythms, and sonic explosions underscore tales of the odd done by the strange: killer bees on a rampage; hirsute, gun-toting cadillac drivers; funky odes to tube tops; bubble boys in love.

Looking like a cross between a 1980's Pat Benatar and a prom queen, Hillary Watts fronts a band of nameless Drones. Together, they entice you into your van and drive you away.

Track Name: Tube Top
don't want no girlie in a woolie sweater
it makes me surly when I surely try to pet her
don’t want my honey in a linen dickie
I pay good money to stroke my little chickie

if you love me you better give me all your heart
if you love me you know you got to dress the part

don’t want no booty in a gansta hoodie
it makes me moody when i need to love my cutie
don’t want my packet in a North Face jacket
I just can’t hack it when the lord moves me to smack it

if you love me you better give me all your heart
if you love me you know you got to dress the part

tube top
up top
whatcha got?
tube top

tube top
up top
ya can’t stop
tube top

don’t want my biscuit in a leather vest now
i just can’t risk it got to get it off your chest now
wanna be my hoochie? mama, lose the Gucci
I got some muffin-toppin’ stuffin’, say, “coochie coochie”

if you love me you better give me all your heart
if you love me you know you got to dress the part
Track Name: Knuckle
hairy Cadillac driver
you must have come from a far away land
with your gun rack & your fuzzy knuckled hand

hairy Cadillac driver
why did you choose a metallic color blue?
your hat is camo and your jacket is too

hairy Cadillac driver
now if I was the blatant judging type
I’d say you probably beat up on your wife
hairy Cadillac driver
with a bench seat for your lady to sit near
fit 3 more and still have room for the beer

you’ve got magical stuff going on inside that car
don’t know what you’re doing or exactly who you are
Track Name: Killer Kind
woke up at a quarter to 2 and I went outside
those bees were waiting for me
the killer kind

they float around like clouds in the sky
those bees will get your life
the killer kind

they’re floating in the sky…

they killed my lover so I’ll take a chance
they’ll kill your brother too so I may as well just dance
the thriller kind

black and yellow and small and sweet
we can’t be sure they don’t eat meat
(we eat meat)
the killer kind

they’re floating in the sky…
Track Name: Slap Slap
her name is aja
she's a cat, a little cat
she is a rag doll
fifty dollars is where it's at

I know she loves me
'cause I can feel it in her teeth
and the vibrations
that rattle underneath

she shake me
she shake me
she no forsake me
she shake me

his name is Ya Ya
and he rise up from the dead
he pull the moon down
and he wear it on his head

he got a pitch fork
from his youth down on the farm
and he can use it
yeah, he can use it

he shake me
he shake me
he no forsake me
he shake me

put a little lovey in my cup
a little lovey in my cup
put a little kissy in my cup
a little kissy in my cup
put a little slap slap in my cup
a little slap slap in my cup
and shake it up

my name is sheba
and I'll teach you how to fly
just lay your head back
and you close your eyes

and then I shake you
I shake you
I no forsake you
I shake you
Track Name: Black Boots, White Lies

hear you knocking on my door
hear you crawl across the floor
you can hear me?

bbwl

listen for the air I breathe
you'll know what I really need
i can do it

bbwl

kiss me on the dark back porch
give me death or give me a torch
what?

bbwl

you'll know when I want some more
I won't say no like the girl before
she wouldn’t stop

bbwl

i went to the chi-o house
they were watching danger mouse

danger!

keep me down until I beg
tuck your man between your legs
i love you

bbwl

now's the time to take a stand
driver of metallic sand
vroom

bbwl

i went to the chi-o house
they were watching danger mouse
