Eyedress – I Don’t Wanna Be Your Friend

There’s a great early 80’s punk vibe to ‘I Don’t Wanna Be Your Friend’ by Eyedress. The bass line is sharp and fast. The guitars are a little off kilter, think of bands like Talking Heads, and the spoken vocal works perfectly with the song.

“I don’t wanna be your friend, I got better things to do, if you wanna talk about me, you better say that shit to my face” states Eyedress, clearly not in the mood to be fucked with. Indeed he states the song is about “betrayal amongst people I considered ‘friends’, losing trust and people that play both sides.”

This is possibly not a song you will sing along to but I guarantee it’s one that will get stuck in your head. Especially the amazing bass line.
