The Wheelz - So Neat



  I don't know much about The Wheelz (so if you read this guys, feel free to add any info you want to the comments section), but from what I can make out, they formed in 2012 and are from Tulsa, Oklahoma. They make the kind of snotty retro (retro in a good way) punk rock music of which I'm particularly keen. Influenced by the likes of Blanks 77 and The Briefs they've an ep out on the excellent No Front Teeth label, called Are So Neat. From that ep, this is a cover of The Partisans' So Neat.....

Kelvin Klein and Reebok 
Your making all the money that I ain't got
I wanna keep buying but I know I am not 
Clever in my pocket that way 
Shaking in some sweat shop 
The kids are living lives that they ain't got 
I wanna keep trying so I know I am not 
Selling all the names for free 

I wanna have it all 
Going to make the world just like me 

Meanwhile in the night street 
There's a 24 something shopping in his gold feet
Got a credit card for brains 
that's so neat 
And he's selling all the names for free 

I wanna have it all 
Going to make the world just like me

Just do it if you want some
Keep running around and get some 
Just do it if you want some
Gotta keep buying 

I wanna have it all 
Going to make the world just like me
