Divorce Lyric

His C U Next Thursday Wife took the Oven

left him with  George Forman and  Toaster

He will not cry so much,  he has Beans

They say in space, no one,  hears screams

His C U Next thursday Wife took the Oven

But he will detox, from Joules and Kath Kidston

never will miss them

His C U Next Thursday Wife took The Washer

It was a Combi one (that also Dries)

To clean that Uniform what will he do?

the divorce game, this man,a Rookie blue!

A new start tinged with History

But he will detox, from Joules and Kath Kidston

never will miss them

Please aid this Heart, don’t under rate


Please aid this Heart ,don’t under rate

something beautiful

Well it has been a fair while

something beautiful

We will both crack out a smile

an interloper

sent to wreck your house

A forces scaly brat

secret fucks and then he’s toast

took an oath

not to take an oath I’m sure

stunted man Child

walking out the door

yet something beautiful

catch a breath and steal away Something Beautiful

this Libidos crack Cocaine!

Cancerian, smile away the night

whilst i’m in Misery

Cancerian, smile away the night

Hog roast took me away

‘Its too early.its too soon’

Why am i scrolling,urgently?

something beautiful

Humour and that chemistry

something beautiful

Ex wife offers delivery!

On a platter,on a plate

Yet I walked to that first date

E.U Referendum. A view from the Parishes

I’m voting to stay in the E.U.
I’m of an age where i have lived enough life to pass comment that acknowledges both sides. 
The liberal musician in me would love to push the big red button that says leave. PUSH IT, THE E.U DOES’NT TOLERATE BENDY VEG.
The bald Mondeo driving Conservative bit of my brain says DON’T ROCK THE BOAT FOR GODS SAKE,WHAT ABOUT YOUR NECTAR POINTS?!
The world is changing rapidly!
Folk whom are mostly younger and way more ‘plugged in’ to technology have a different view of the globe and will have their hands on the levers of power soon enough.Race, Gender and Nationality,like it or not, may be of a lessening influence in the future. I don’t like the though of a loss of identity,but its a bit too late.
If you wanna be in a gang you gotta wear the uniform.
We all use the same branded products as one another (APPLE),and want to be connected from what I have seen.
And thats the Elephant in the room for most patriotic folk.
Vote Leave: “We haven’t got much accurate data to back up our claims,but if you want Britain thats a bit like that of 30 years ago vote for us.We offer old school nationalist sentiment,flag waving/bunting up/here comes the Queen/lets colonise/civilise some ruffians etc.”
Leave also gives a platform to Right and left wing extremists,Do you want to associate with them and have you seen the news lately?
The NHS: A political hot potato,fresh out the microwave.Forever.Regardless of who takes power.
Business: Old school mass industry is mostly, deader than Elvis in this country,My cousin works in asset finance and informs me the U.K is strong in specialised industries nobody else can do. I presume staying in the E.U  will aid this.
I’m a forces brat,born in the USA, feeling a bit alienated by all this. And i’m nearly forty (ugh.) We still have our history (and its loads better than anybody else’s,if a bit bloody) fat American tourists will still spunk hefty sums to visit our National Treasures. Our currency is still being retained and well valued.
 As we are then?

Another huge talent departs,hyper magnified by the digital age and also humanised by anecdote and interviews with anyone who came within a few feet of the man.

Discreet private Creatives from a more monocultural time,who unleashed their Peacock feathers when it mattered,an era when culture was more passively consumed yet more passionately dissected. We had grainy footage of an artist in a long Mac finding his feet,then the definitive 80’s presentation that took a host of influences,reimagined them through a psychedelic sex charged Pop Rock filter. He did text messaging symbolism years before anyone I can recall and anticipated a sea change in the industry,allegedly grilling fellow musicians as to weather they owned the rights to their master recordings.

He played lord knows how many instruments.Very Well.

Never sang the praises of his home state then promptly moved to L.A.

And he created until the very last,music I’m not familiar with to be honest.Dwarfed by the classic albums from a very productive decade. I may be sticking my neck out a touch here but….

There will never be another well dressed intensely private gifted sexually suggestive religious midget musician as Prince.

He transcended a lot of things many of us cannot, his immense talent brought wealth and opportunity. He could not escape an ultimate end that unites us all.

Black Tanks FaceShot

Its noisy,passionate Gen x inspired chaos. I’m very proud of this. Andy and I step out from being supporting cast for others to finally practice some songwriting chops.

What does it sound like? Somewhere between DFA1979 Prodigy Slaves Wytches Libertines.
