about

From now on, when someone asks you what the day in the middle of the week is, no longer need you say, "err, hump day." Now you can say "It's Heritage Hump Day!" That's because every Wednesday from now to the end of the year or before someone really big stops us, Heritage Hump Records (a subsidiary of Onus Records) and New Times will be bringing you a limited edition collector's item of a much beloved Phoenix band that walked the earth before the year 2000 A.D. We will honor that band with a commemorative digital single that you, the fickle public, will have only seven days to download to your computer s and smart phones before this single goes back into the vault, a new Heritage Hump subject is chosen and the cycle begins anew.

This week for a limited time only, we bring you Phoenix's punk pop poets The Beat Angels and a much coveted song from their never-released third album entitled "She Shoots Starlight."

lyrics:
__________________________________________

She Shoots Starlight

He’s a mess, drunkenness
He hits her when he’s wired
Blue collar, unscholared
“Oh, he's just tired,” she said

She only does whatever it was
Her mother taught her
Scattered lines, busted rhymes
Skips across water

It goes around, around the sun
Comes on with a gun
She thinks about the girl she was in school

She shoots starlight
Through her darkness
Sparks the night
Where the kids are all right

Dirty blonde, siren song
Could write her own ticket
She got scars on her knees
He ain’t never gonna kick it

Stars go down, dirty town
We watch the sun rise
Through strip malls and tract-house walls
There’s a sadness that’s as pure as butterflies

She shoots starlight
Through her darkness
Sparks the night
Where the kids are all right

She shoots starlight
Through her darkness
Sparks the night
Yeah, she’s all right …

She knows (where we hide)
She knows (where I hide)
She knows (where we hide)
She knows (where I hide)
