Crooked Room 01:46
Can’t think straight Chorus of noise Red line Goes where Can’t think straight Locked in your room Soft shell Red head Door marked x Where will I go See it Can’t reach it Door marked x Where will I go See it Can’t reach it yet The crooked room gets you The crooked room gets you The crooked room gets you in the end

Baby Rust 02:43
It’s not a feeling It’s a transmitter I’m the cathode You’re in the ether Reflecting Embodied dust We’re failed coals Baby rust And through the ether It’s all before me A half oiled promise And now you won’t floor me Three rushes later I just glanced back around That pile of rust Now solid ground This superstructure Our only rupture But that don’t stop me From falling under It’s not a feeling Falling into the ether

No Scrubs 02:49
Well a scrub is a guy that thinks he's fly He's also known as a busta Always talking about what he wants And just sits on his broke ass So no, I don't want your number No, I don't want to give you mine and No, I don't want to meet you nowhere No, I don't want none of your time and No, I don't want no scrubs A scrub is a guy that can't get no love from me Hanging out the passenger side of his best friend's ride Trying to holla at me Well a scrub checking me, but his game is kinda weak And I know that he cannot approach me 'Cause I'm looking like class and he's looking like trash Can't get with a deadbeat arse So no, I don't want your number No, I don't want to give you mine and No, I don't want to meet you nowhere No, I don't want none of your time and No, I don't want no scrubs A scrub is a guy that can't get no love from me Hanging out the passenger side of his best friend's ride Trying to holla at me No scrubs No scrubs

about

7" SINGLE NOW SOLD OUT: sistahpunkrecords.bandcamp.com/album/crooked-room-7

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After a long wait after their first release, Sistah Punk EP, which was released on Tuff Enuff Records, Big Joanie will release their single Crooked Room on their newly set up label Sistah Punk Records.

Crooked Room wouldn't exist without the help of our fans who helped us get this out into the world.

The song Crooked Room was inspired by a talk Melissa Harris Perry gave where she compared the way black women have to negotiate our racist, sexist, classist, homophobic society while maintaining a sense of self as trying to find your vertical in a crooked room.

The song is about how difficult it is for black women to find confidence in themselves and exist in a world that hates and tells them so on every advert, TV show or magazine.

The single includes Big Joanie's songs Crooked Room, Baby Rust, sung by bassist Kiera, and our cover of TLC’s No Scrubs.
