about

Harriet's Got Herpes was intended as a dumb punk fun B-side. It ended up as a dumb punk fun B-side on our Missiles EP and people still ask us to play it live.

I've been called a misogynist for writing it, but what my accuser failed to take into account is that a misogynist hates women. If I hated women, this song would be called 'Women Got Herpes' and that would be a fair cop.

However, it's about one woman in particular who came to my attention. Not women in general.

Woman sleeping around? Fair enough.
Woman has herpes? Unlucky, but fair enough.

Woman has herpes, sleeps around and doesn't tell her partners she's got it or use protection?

NOT FAIR ENOUGH!!!

lyrics

I know a girl called Harriet
She’s loose with morals and regret
Watch out lads, when she gets leathered
Opens up her sleeve of wizard
Heard her cocktail of infections
Graced many unwary erections
Trails of betrayal never end
Humiliation is public revenge

Harriet’s got herpes, she’s looking to tease
Give her half a chance and she’ll give you t’disease
Harriet’s got herpes, she won’t be appeased
She’ll fuck another sucker, “here’s your S.T.D.” Hey!

Harriet conceals her guilt
With darkness and an unwashed quilt
Pulling chumps in seedy bars
Has served her pretty well thus far
So men of ill repute surround her
Most itch after their encounter
Down at the doc’s a quick diagnosis
“You’ve got herpes, crabs and syphilis”

Harriet’s got herpes, she’s looking to tease
Give her half a chance and she’ll give you t’disease
Harriet’s got herpes, she won’t be appeased
She’ll fuck another sucker, “here’s your S.T.D.” Hey!

Dish it out girl, dish it out
We know your dirty secret
Hang about girl, hang about
You can fucking keep it

Harriet’s got herpes, she’s looking to tease
Give her half a chance and she’ll give you t’disease
Harriet’s got herpes, she won’t be appeased
She’ll fuck another sucker, “here’s your S.T.D.” Hey!

Repeat chorus

about

The Red Pills Leeds, UK

The Red Pills took their name from the 1999 movie 'The Matrix.' In one scene, Keanu Reeves' character 'Neo' is presented with a choice of pills to ingest; a red pill or a blue pill. Each is a metaphor - taking the blue pill will allow Neo to continue to live a cosy, comfortable lie. Taking the red pill will allow him to wake up to the truth. ... more
