Just A Song About Ping Pong
Released: 20th October
Still at school and wet behind the ears they may be, but for Operator Please that doesn't stop them ramming their exceedingly happy, annoyingly happy pop down your throats and probably where the sun doesn't shine too.
'Just A Song About Ping Pong' actually isn't a ditty about Table Tennis at all, but is apparently about the adolescent joys of sexual discovery. Set to a beat that is equal parts CSS, Daft Punk and Mario Gameboy, singer Amandah spits the words out like a Toytown machine gun, as random put-downs meet cheerleader slogans before morning assembly.
Although not quite as clever as it would like to be and not the type of fun your average Brit would conspire to enjoy, this at least suggests that Operator Please had a damn sight more rewarding pastimes during their school lunch breaks than yours truly.
