I’d imagine that’d be worth a quid.
One of my greatest regrets is not sneaking LMW when she was 16 into the Corner to what I assumed was just a gig, but turned out to be them playing this album in reverse order.
And of course I didn’t have the heart to go without her.
‘We were once so close to heaven
Peter came out and gave us medals
Declaring us the nicest
Of the damned’
How perfect is that?
There’s a real…understanding of corporate slavery on this album.
The meaningless of it.
Minimum Wage, of course, but the (plastic, of course) Morricone style epicness speaks of the wild adventure into the unknown to come, Hearing Aid, Someone Keeps Moving My Chair is the weird guy from Office Space’s theme song.
I really, really could go on.
Edit: And yes, Birdhouse. Just…musically a brilliant track, but that it’s a love song from a nightlight to a child complete with a backstory for the friggin’ nightlight…I mean, the lengths he’s gone to in exploring what an odd concept that is to begin with…
