about

Curves That Kick, the long out-of-print debut album from SoCal quartet 16, threw the doors open to a new, post-Helmet/AmRep sound of discordance and discontent. Originally released on Pushead’s Bacteria Sour label in ’93, the album exposed the nascent beginnings of the soon-to-be infamous quartet. As Curves That Kick proved then and underscores now in its remixed and remastered form, 16 is its own unique, belligerent human animal.

Track Name: Curves That Kick
You shouldn't go on living life this way
If you're bummed out, you cannot stay

I'm in the mirror
You can't get away
You're driving your car
I'm runnin' in shoes
You're pushing the pedal
But it ain't goin'
I've dropped the saw
But I'm still coming

You shouldn't go on living life this way
If you're bummed out, you cannot stay

I'm under the sheets
But you don't know it
While you were sleeping I brushed your hair
You've dreamt about me

But you've never sensed it
I've held you tightly
And kissed your lips

You shouldn't go on living life this way
If you're bummed out, you cannot stay
Track Name: Chum
Bluish discoloration
Finger tips and toes
Artificial limbs
And various veins
Crossover bypass
Blocked artery
Bedridden man
Skin graft

Why?
Seen another man
Seen another girl
You're a machine
You are not real

Lice infestation
Scalp and ears
Large intestine
Swollen pouch
Track Name: Sedatives
Watching my monkey have a fit
He's just pissed cause we shot his girl
He'd stick her with pencils and pens
She smashed his face with rocks

The monkey got caught in a Weedeater
Kept the roosters and geese alive
They tried to drive my car
Everyone hates a mime
Track Name: Grandpa's Chair
Your pudding cakes have made me sick
They're clear as mud or a pocket knife
Let's swim with dad without the wheelchair
I've sunk to the bottom and drown like a brick

These damn hiccups
Are bringing me down
I'm tired of reasons
It's time to fist fight
Old men and women
Sleep in the park
Then young children steal their stuff

Trap beavers in the woods then bring em' home
We can barbecue out back
With some propane gas
Make some room for dessert
We've got plenty of soup
We've got chicken noodle
Or the vegetable beef

Fiberglass

With malted barley selected cereal grains
And the choicest hops for superior taste
I've slipped in the bathtub
Just bring me a towel
Then put my slippers on
Before I freeze to death

Fiberglass
Track Name: Astroglide
You shouldn't inhale so deep man
Feel the grip poking a lung
You're stressing, the hearts jumping
Your beat starts winding down
Your blood pressure is rising fast now
You clutch your broken arm

Grey skies
The pigeons and the doves
The trees are blue
Nice cartoon

You flipped your new Camaro
Impaled a wall upside down
With just a twelve pack of Bud
And a short ride home
You shouldn't tell that story
Or relent popular fun

Bad justice
I'm behind bars
You can't even
Read or write
You should have
Let it slide

Resin

Brown hair, burned eyes
Discreet, my face
Ball peen, red blood
Won't stop my friends

You leaped from the car
Get up and go to the store
A pack of smokes bring em' home
For the kids they're all alone

Jet fuel black lung
Inhale black smoke
Cocaine scares me
Pale skin frightened

You've slept on a bed
Of safety pins they keep you warm
The holes absorb the kerosene
Your Daddy cheers for you football team

Exhale
Track Name: Nova
The fat you've stored it keeps you warm
Spent your childhood on a huge farm
Now run on home with cuts and sores
Tripped on a tree log and chipped a tooth
You're broken English from a college class
Grew up in Texas in the dirt and ash
You've got the chance feel free to jump
Siphon gasoline from a gas pump

I've never run before
Not as fast as you
I've never bled before
Not as much as you

Cold
Now run on home with cuts and sore
Tripped on a tree log and chipped a tooth
Track Name: Amish
Shoes stones break bones
Books grown taste snow

The mailman comes
When I'm home
Acrobat
Undertow
The wooden door
Broken bone
Common growth
Telephone

Schwinn spokes freak show
Stress cracks black chicks

Drain

Schwinn spokes freak show
Stress cracks black chicks
Track Name: Mr. Mouse
You epitomize in the blood of Christ
You're dead to us a roll up creep

I'm tired of crying
My throat is dry
We can share some wine to drink
With a small child
Under my arm
But he can't see

A bird got shot squawked in pain
He torched your house and your child
We lied awake in bed
But he comes inside

Burn this town down
Tear it to the ground
But we caught your lies
Track Name: Joe the Cat
Half white and half tan
Abandoned by a man
The rains came
And swept away
This tiny little
Furry man

Swim Joe, swim away
You'll be saved

Long hair and blue eyes
Adopted by a girl
Brought him home
Kept him warm
He was sweet

Seven toes and sharp teeth
Coming home
I called for Joe
He didn't come
He doesn't breathe
Track Name: Hate
A rose is a rose but not in my hands
Cold winds blowing all across this land
I see a red door and I want to paint it black
I press my thumb and the world goes back
One day you'll be sorry
But you don't see it now
Go ahead and stop me
You know how
Better get a grip man
Plant both feet on the ground
Wake up buddy
Hate makes the world go round

Bigotry and prejudice
Doing okay
Inbred motives
We don't kiss all day
The Sun won't shine
If I get my way

Try to picture my smiling face
One day you'll be sorry
But you don't see it now
Go ahead and stop me
You know how

Better get a grip man
Plant both feet on the ground
Wake up buddy
Hate makes the free world go round

One day you'll be sorry
But you don't see it now
Go ahead and stop me
You know how
Better get a grip man
Plant both feet on the ground
Wake up asshole
Hate makes the fucking world go round
Track Name: Doorprize
The impression that you gave me
Makes me feel a part of you
When I warned you don't look at me
Or I'll hurt you you're scared of me
You make me furious I've got to hate you
In other words, it starts to burn you
You stared at me, I had to scratch you
Just to remind me not to offend you

Watch me seek you
Like I can't be the one
To wound, to kick, to cut
To harm, to whip, to bruise
To slap, to bite

The depression hangs all on me
It makes me feel no use for you
When I scorn you don't talk to me
Or you'll get me in trouble for you
