Recorded with MJ of Hookworms at Suburban Studios, except What Girls Want, recorded with Bien and Chuckles of Woodoo at The Audacious Art Experiment. Art by Lisa O'Hara.

Rising from the dust of a dirty Sheffield basement is Che Ga Zebra's latest enigma, 'What Girls Want'. Part farce, part tragedy, 'What Girls Want' casts the shadows of drugs, crime, and climate change against a distorted landscape of drones, drum noodling and fun riffs.

Bien and Chuckles met after a fight was broken up by Chuckles' nanna in the street. Chuckles felt a sense of embarrassment, but Bien looked into his soul and let him know he was the progeny of a noble spirit. Their shared telepathy remained ever since, and these days it manifests itself on the stage, where their punk rock shows are frequently interrupted by psychedelic free jazz wig outs. They are engaging in something deeply personal during these moments, and they don't mind if you leave the room to get some fresh air for a second or two.

Track Name: Beach Bum
Don't listen to him it's a blue flag beach. Get on your board, a dip in the sea, ride that wave and soon you'll be a beach bum hanging out, riding out the Humber wave. Talking shit, smoking shit, checking out the beach babes.
Track Name: In The Pipeworks
"Anything happening?"
"Yes, I've got a few things in the pipeworks."
"Oh, that's good."
Track Name: Hollywood Owl
Pieces. Wrap it up, drop it off. Call me, curtain twitcher. Don't cause a scene you're arousing suspicion. Follow the money it goes everywhere.
