I remember Sugar Nipples from back when I worked at 93Rock.  We had their circular stickers plastered all over our door and still have some on our upstairs file cabinets.  It's a name you don't soon forget.

Turns out, not only is the name memorable, the night you see them will be memorable too! Singer, Matt Truitt is one of the most charismatic frontmen out there.  So much so, that we hired him to do some radio shows for us on the weekends!

In this weeks "QC Songwriter" we go deep to see how a song called "Year of the Cock" came to be.  As you can imagine....it's a pretty funny story.

***believe it or not, there are no swear words in the following video***


1. Band Name:
 Sugar Nipples.

2. Band members:

TWT, vocals

Bazooka Jon, guitar

Heavy Metal Detl, bass fish guitar.

Roddy B, kick drum, snare drum, and hi hat drum.

3. What kind of music? Our music is a combination of riff rock, and folksy jug band fusion.

4. Influences? Sugar Nipples were influenced by the New Duncan imperials, Spinal Tap, Tenacious D, and Nikki Foxx.

5. Where you from? Sugar Nipples lives near the Train tracks under the Locust street bridge in Davenpit Idaho.

6. How'd You Get The Name?  Sugar nipples came up with their name while driving down Queens Boulevard. It's a mystical place for people in middle America, it's in New York City. There were all kinds of names that were thrown around like Poopy Pants and Rubber Balls and Liquor, but then Roddy B said, "hey let's call the band Sugar Nipples;" nobody laughed, it had a certain, ring to it. (I stole that from Paul Stanley)

7. Where can we find you? Folks can contact us on My Space. It's a cutting edge site on the inter web. They have it for computers now.

8. Ever opened for any notable bands? We have never opened for anyone, as we are that friggin good.

9. Where can we see you play? Look for us playing spontaneous shows near the popcorn machine of your favorite regional venue.

In all sincerity, this is our 20th anniversary, and we are truly blessed to have such great friends. THANK YOU!!!

 

I was lonely with no place to go,

But I knew that I was hungry though,

Right up the street there was this Chinese place,

She turned around and I saw her face

She said hello, what you rike to drink

I didn't care as long as it was pink

She said peck Poji da, no agashee

That's when I knew that she was diggin’ me

She brought me hot and sour soup and an order of baby corn

Then she sat on my lap and she looked in my eyes and said you must have been born

In The Year Of The Cock…Cock Of The Walk

In The Year Of The Cock…Rock Ala Cock

In The Year Of The Cock…(Rooster Crow Sound Effect)

In The Year Of The Cock.

Just then I nearly had a heart attack

Thanks to the Chinese zodiac

Got on her hands and knees to wash my feet

The happy ending was a special treat

She winked at me with the slanted Eye

And said you get my crab Rangoon a try

I always had a thing for Asian chicks

But why do they got's ta eat with wooden sticks

She brought me hot and sour soup and an order of baby corn

Then she sat on my lap and she looked in my eyes and said you must have been born

In The Year Of The Cock…Cock Of The Walk

In The Year Of The Cock…Rock Ala Cock

In The Year Of The Cock…(Rooster Crow Sound Effect)

In The Year Of The Cock.

(The rest of the lyrics are so brilliant and emotional that my sesquipedalian exhibition of proliferation and attenuation, obfuscates the propositional validity. Please forgive me)
