Petrol Girls - Touch Me Again

  I've been waiting for this video to turn up online ever since the Just Some Punk Songs show chatroom were blown away by the song a few weeks ago. Needless to say it was well worth the wait.

  Petrol Girls featured on here last year with a song from their Some Thing ep (http://justsomepunksongs.blogspot.co.uk/2016/02/petrol-girls-slug.html). Towards the end of last year they returned with the album Talk Of Violence and it's from that record that today's song is taken. You can check it out here :  https://petrolgirls.bandcamp.com/

  Tagging themselves Raging Feminist Post-Hardcore, the song you'll find below is one of the most powerful that I've featured on here ("they sound like a female fronted At The Drive In" was one of the chatroom comments). Their current tour with Strike Anywhere is gonna blow a few venue roofs off! This is Touch Me Again.....

Touch Me Again 
My domain my temple and my territory my pleasure 
Cut cut cut it out 
My desire my right to choose or to refuse this encounter 
Cut cut cut it out 
My agency that non consensual contact tries to take from me 
Cut cut cut it out 
My fucking mind you undermine my sense of self you pressurize 
Cut cut cut it out 
Its my body and my choice 
It's my body 
My fucking choice 
My power my psyche and my energy my decision 
Cut cut cut it out 
My passion could never be ignited by such aggression 
Cut cut cut it out 
My liberty my body as the base of my autonomy 
Cut cut cut it out 
I need to see us make progress towards accountability 
Cut cut cut it out 
Its my body and my choice 
Its my body 
My fucking choice 
My lips my thighs my wrists my mind 
My lips my thighs my wrists my spine 
My hips my neck my tongue my mind 
Touch me again and I'll fucking kill you 
Touch me again and I'll fucking kill you 
Touch me again and I'll fucking kill you 
Touch me again and I will fucking kill you
