Secret Police - Bootie Call

The Secret Police, an Irish three piece band that has produced some excellent material in the past, bring this latest single out - titled 'Bootie Call'. The lyrics are rough and blunt, depicting a man who turns the table on a woman who considers herself a player. Instead of her playing him as she expects, she actually becomes the mans Bootie Call. Peter Mullins's voice is perfectly crafted for this kind of singing - a coarse and gravely but melodic vocalisation makes the song sound almost like a story or an anecdote - the man behind this voice really would be able to do the things he talks about! The song starts with some toe-tapping instrument combination, the power chord usage and the drums creating an upbeat and almost regretful song to come.

The gritty vocals of Mullins come in and he warns the girl out of 'Playing' him, something you wouldn't want to do to no gravel voiced Irishman! The chorus has him making almost drunken declarations to this girl who I imagine is sitting there, terrified of engendering the anger in Mullins by playing him. The lyrics are simple and well executed so the song would be easily marketable - coupled with the fact that so many boys and girls could relate to the lyrics means that there could be success in the pipeline for the Secret Police! There second song, 'Underground', sees a very different vocal side of Mullins - almost as if he has coughed up his phlegm and cleared his head after the nasty night with the girl in Bootie Call. He sings with feeling and with a soft guitar strumming playing in the background - the drums don't come in for a full minute.

Mullins is again depicting his woes with women - this time, it's about him being 'surrounded by sirens/who take my best friend away'. This is something that I personally can relate too so I'm sure you guys would be able to as well! Mullins does an excellent job here representing a melancholic lovelorn gentleman, and the slow pace of the song matches his feelings excellently. This song could almost be better then the first, though the first would be more marketable. For the connoisseur like you or I though, this song is the gem on their Bootie Call titled single. Give both a listen though, don't just take my word for it.
