Eez-Eh

Eez-Eh was written by Sergio Pizzorno and is the 11th track on 48:13. It was released as the first single off the album on 1 June 2014 and peaked at #22 in the UK charts.

BackgroundEdit

Eez-Eh has been described by Tom as being a comic, cartoonish song, a "ridiculous rant" inspired by conversations the band members might have at five or six in the morning. The lyrics of a demo version originally contained a reference to 2013's horsemeat scandal in the UK and were widely circulated by the press ahead of the release, but that part was not included in the final version.[1][2] The title comes from the pronounciation of the word "easy" in a Leicester accent and was inspired by Serge reading about how the accent is apparently dying out.[3]

The song received its first airplay on 28 April 2014 on Italian radio station Radio Deejay.

Eez-Eh was nominated for Best Track and Best Dancefloor Filler at the NME Awards 2015. It was also nominated for Best Track at the Q Awards 2014.

LiveEdit

Eez-Eh was debuted live at the first gig of the 48:13 Tour in Paris on 30 April 2014 and has been played regularly since. Serge usually plays a Korg synthesizer for it, making it the only song currently in the set he doesn't play guitar on.

Starting from the first gig of the For Crying Out Loud Tour on 8 March 2017 in Sydney, Eez-Eh has been performed with a cover of Daft Punk's Around the World as an outro.[4]

QuotesEdit

"I was gonna call it 'Horsemeat' but I thought it was a bit ridiculous. But it's just a bit of a spit, really. There have been so many nights in hotel rooms when me and Tom will stay up all night talking and it's about that."
— Serge (NME, 18 January 2014)
"In some ways it's giving haters what they want, but I kind of love that as well, because it is a proper geezer song. It was one of those beautiful moments that as writer you pray for: when they take 10 minutes no hassle, and you end up with the first single. It frightened me at first. I knew it was powerful but I thought, 'Can we get away with that?' But it's just undeniable."
— Serge (ShortList Magazine, 8 May 2014)

LyricsEdit

I ain't easy
And I make you mad
Least I ain't sleazy
I'm just trying to put the world to rights

And if you want to
I'll take you out
And I've got the feeling
That I'm gonna keep you up all
Gonna keep you up all
Gonna keep you up all night

Tired of taking orders
Coping with disorders
The wrong men have the power
Turning my milk sour

Tired of taking orders
Coping with disorders
The wrong men have the power
Turning my milk sour
Turning my milk sour
Turning my milk sour

I ain't easy
And I make you mad
Least ain't sleazy
I'm just trying to put the world to rights
If you want to
I'll take you out
'Cause I've got the feeling
That I'm gonna keep you up all night

I ain't easy
But I ain't that bad
No rhyme or reason
I'm just trying to set the world alight

You got problems
Well so have I
And I've got the feeling
That I'm gonna keep you up all
Gonna keep you up all
Gonna keep you up all night

There's cobras in the moshpit
Finally we've lost it
Every day is brutal
Now we're being watched by Google

Gotta keep it simple
Sending out a signal
Everyone's on bugle
Now we're being watched by Google
Being watched by Google
Being watched by Google

I ain't easy
And I make you mad
At least ain't sleazy
I'm just trying to put the world to rights

And if you want to
I'll take you out
And I've got the feeling
That I'm gonna keep you up all night

I ain't easy
I ain't that bad
No rhyme or reason
I'm just trying to set the world alight

You got problems
Well so have I
And I've got the feeling
That I'm gonna keep you up all
Gonna keep you up all
Gonna keep you up all night
