I Fuckin’ ‘Ate Pikies!

O.k so this is the first (of many) posts for a section we like to call Say What?!. This is a section devoted to defining all those words and phrases that people make up and use in everyday conversation, some aren’t common but they are funny non the less. Each word or phrase will be accompanied by some tunes for your listening pleasure.

This Week we have one of my favourite’s of the moment:

|pīk|ie
PIKIE
noun.

1.
urbandictionary.com defines a ‘Pikie’ as the following:

A Pikie is an inbred Irish gypsy. They can usually be found on caravan sites boning their cousins.
It is advisable not to walk your dog in a pikie infested area as they may steal it and try and sell it back to you at a price of around £5.
They also enjoy picking fights with people and will often use weapons.
A Pikie can be recognised by their crappy clothes, or that fact that their dog leads are made of bail twine.
Their language is also not very clear and it is easy to mishear a pikie.
That fucking pikie stole my dog.

Used colloquially Pikie can be used to describe objects and events as well as a type of inbred Irish Gypsy. For example: ‘That track is so Pikie’

Now i know what you might be thinking? how can a track be Pikie? does it con you into paying for it then when you get it home you realise it’s actually a piece of shit?

No thats called ‘Michael Bay‘ as in:

“Hey i rented this movie and its really…. really shit, it was just 2 hours of explosions”

“o.k. lets see here…. yep here’s your problem… its made by Michael Bay.”

“ow no… i must have not seen the fine print, dammit!”

“yer, i’m sorry no one ever sees the fine print”

“well can i get a refund?”

“no.”

No what we are talking about is best described by a friend of mine called Soda Pop
It Happened a little bit like this:

Soda Pop: ‘Man check this song out it’s so pikie, man’ (just so you know he’s got an english accent so when your constructing the conversation in your mind just remember that :))

Mr. Belvedere: ‘Pikie what do you mean?’

Sp: ‘you know like Pikie, a gypsy… lives in a camper van’

B: ‘Yer i know, but why is this song ‘Pikie?’

Sp: ‘Cos pikies don’t do anything and they live out in the country so they have big parties take heaps and pills get really munted and listen to this type of music….. It’s Pikie music!

So as an example i’ve got a track that is a prime example of a ‘Pikie‘ track. Now although this is a Dub Step track, ‘Pikie‘ can be used to describe other music including Drum & Bass, Garage, Jungle, and i would say even Dutch House. In other words Pikie can be used to describe music under the broad genre of ‘Munta’ 🙂

Euro (traditional) – Pikie: this is the track that sparked the discussion.

Cockney Thug – Rusko

Aus (Mohamoplay) Pikie: My own definition of an Aus Pikie track, plus i just really like it.

Underground Sound – Seductive

Bonus Track: I found this when searching for cockney thug, fucking Rad Remix 🙂
