The bass solo makes the song. A redcap is a muderous goblin, elf, or fairy that soaks its cap in its victim's blood making it red. Even though they wear iron boots, they are quite fast and impossible to outrun. Also a redcap is the British nickname for a military policeman.
Following is a fitting guitar solo over a walking bass and drum section. Boring and just creepy lyrics. The music is reminiscent of the Doors, but Bloom cannot pull off any Jim Morrison type singing. The interludes are very good with delicate piano chords from Lanier and Roeser's guitar tapping.
Dramatic change from verse to chorus. Chorus undertoned by guitar fill, then followed by above average guitar solo. Great bass line throughout. Uninteresting and dull in some parts. Lacking much of the good bass featured in other songs.
The lyrics are the most science fictional of the album. This is dark, amphetamine-fueled occult music that relied on not one, but three guitars -- Bloom and keyboardist Allen Lanier added their own parts to Roeser 's incessant riffing: a barely audible upright piano keeping the changes rooted in early rock and the blues, and a rhythm attack by Bouchard and his brother Joe on bass that was barely contained inside the tune's time signature.
From the next track on "I'm on the Lamb But I Ain't No Sheep," elliptical lyrics talked about "the red and the black," while darkening themselves with stunning riffs and crescendos that were as theatrical as they were musical, and insured the Cult notice among the other acts bursting out of the seams of post-'60's rock. From its knotty, overdriven riff to its rhythm guitar vamp, Vox organ shimmer, its crash cymbal ride and plodding bass and drum slog through the changes -- not to mention its title -- it is the ultimate in early metal anthems.
With Satan's hog no pig at all And the weather's getting dry We'll head south from Altamont In a cold-blood traveled trance So clear the road, my bully boys And let some thunder pass We're pain, we're steel, a plot of knives We're Transmaniacon MC Behind the pantry, behind the tree The ghouls adopt that child Whose name resound forever Whose name resounds in terror And I'm no fool to call that hog 'Cause man, I remember Those who did resign their souls To Transmaniacon MC And surely we did offer up Behind that stage at dawn Beers and barracuda, reds and monocaine, yeah Pure nectar of antipathy Behind that stage at dawn To those who would resign their souls To Transmaniacon MC Cry the cable, cry the word Unknown terror's here And won't you try this tasty snack Behind the scene or but the back Which was the stage at Altamont My humble boys of listless power We're pain, we're steel, a plot of knives We're Transmaniacon Look, all right!
