♦  Blur  ↓  ‘Good Song’

Waiting, I got no town to hide in
The country’s got a hold of my soul
TV’s dead and there ain’t no war in my head
And you seem very beautiful to me

Sleeping but my works not done
I could be lying on an atom bomb
I’ll take care ‘cause I know you’ll be there
You seem very beautiful to me

It is the rest of your life keeps a rolling and rolling
Picture in my pocket looks like you
It is the rest of your life keeps a rolling, rolling, rolling along

¤ →Late Night Tales  (2006)

presents David Shrigley – Forced to Speak with Others, the first collection of audio offerings from acclaimed Scottish satirical artist.

It features Shrigley’s dark rhetoric to a backing of dark melodies, ominous percussion and playful sounds, a collection of tracks which could be described as weird and wonderful… or perhaps bizarre and slightly unhinged or maybe brilliant and genius?

Shrigley has penned 14 tracks of spoken word stories and mutterings on subjects as diverse as Satan’s apocalyptic rock concert, giant hairy children, ludicrously clumsy fathers and an insect that desires to lays eggs inside someone’s brain.

«I am a man with things to say. Some of the most important things that I have said have been recorded here for future generations to enjoy after my death. They have been set to music to make them more enjoyable.”
