A Virtual Compilation

Early last year while recording I accidentally loaded the wrong sample then left the voice in the piece as a happy accident. Earlier this year I read about a fundraising campaign for Genesis P-Orridge and a call for music related to he/r so I submitted the happy accident –

On the 23rd of the month it is customary at 23:00 to reach out creatively and express oneself, January 23rd is my son’s birthday so it was an extra special experiment, this is the result, made entirely from Psychic TV, Thee Majesty and Genesis P-Orridge tracks with just a little encouragement from our Echosystem. Enjoy. X,BD

“Words are meaningless and forgettable”

We march at night
Our social media accounts are private
We only play small venues
We rehearse alone
We play in the dark
We can laugh at ourselves
but don’t you dare
If you know how we feel
then play our songs.
Introverted Lives Matter
The Invisible Demographic
Internalised Culture
Box Set Firsts.
Macaulay Culkin does not represent us
Excuse my body language impediment
Listening to Man In Black again
as I hug my self again
“All I ever wanted
All I ever needed…”

 
 

A Trump and a Tiger

 

Deep in a jungle

High up in the clouds

.

A trump and a tiger

Went down to the water

Playing together

Friends for ever

For ever and ever

.

Deep in a jungle

High up in the clouds

.

Trump only likes spikey water

So tiger jumps in first

Orange bubbles up trumps nose

Laughing and splashing

Friends together for ever and ever

.

Deep in a jungle

High up in the clouds

.

Trump and a tiger

Get out of the water

Trump blows tigers fur dry

All fluffy and clean

Friends cosy together

For ever and ever

.

Deep in a jungle

High up in the clouds

.

Hypnotised

Sailin’ away away far far away
Blown by harmonies
From love songs to loneliness
Mesmerized by the beat on the bow
of the slow march of times tide
The night, hypnotised,
Starry eyed and drugged
The pulse pulse pulse
As we push push push
Into the oncoming wind
Lean
To its change
Capsize and watch the horizon verticalise.

 
 

Protest Song

I wish everyone would just behave
Then I could go back to writing love songs
Like I just don’t care
Instead of protest songs
More protest songs,
To prove I am not complicit
Or whatever it is that compels me
To contribute
In a positive and constructive way
To society.

I wish everyone would just behave
Then I could go crazy in love songs
A riot of emotion
A revolution of the heart
An insurgence of romance
A coup d’état of coo ca choo.

 
 

Increasingly Difficult Dark Clichés

At this time of day
Especially at this time of year
Even in this city
To sit in the sun
As it dips
And lowers
Becomes ever increasingly difficult.

At this time of day
Especially at this time of year
To sit in the sun
Head up
Eyes shut closed
Blinded, oblivious
Becomes ever increasingly difficult.

At this time of day
Especially at this time of year
This city sets at dawn
Blinded, oblivious
Eyes drawn down
Solitary light like an echo of a distant sound
And other dark clichés

I just want to sit in sun light
Head up
Eyes shut closed
Blinded, oblivious
Only vigilant of phosphenes
Solitary, distant
And other increasingly difficult dark clichés.

 
 

For a Life Well Lived

Fill your life with love
Let it seep into all the pores
You have a capacity for more, always.
And for a life well lived, an exploration of these:

The nooks, the crannies
The void, the abyss
Exploration of these
For a life well lived.

Hard-hat, torch, climbing rope, compass, comfortable shoes,
Or on your knees, anything
With Dogma as a guide to where to step off
And love in your heart you will never be lost.

To roll over or rebel
Consume or expel
Embrace or make haste
Fuck or be damned

For a life well lived
Exploration of these
For a life well lived
Thorough exploration of these.
