A tribute to miners and the British Miners' Strike of A Right to Life or anti-choice song. Inconvenience, interrupting other plans.
In memory of Robert Murdoch, who loved the band. In my defence, I mostly write to you in my quiet times. As a singer in this band, I do have some interesting moments, but I tend to enjoy them, and then move on without writing them down. I should really try to tell you some of that stuff.
For instance, we were trying to make part of a song sound new and different by changing the time signature, and Beans Chris suggested we should play it in p-time; a sort of traditional waltz. Funny at the time. Not so funny on paper. So, I end up telling you about the nothing stuff in between.
My present moment involves my eating peas quietly with a fork, and pondering my house… I very rarely eat a meal without the radio on, or a film, or a page from Wikipedia open in front of me, or chat from a friend.
Usually you would find me dancing around my kitchen just with the general quietness of it all. Because from the quiet comes most good things.
But it was quiet when I was eating my peas. I was eating my peas with a fork and communing with the cosmos. I have to note, that the buzz of the cosmos was still going while I was eating.
In moments of quiet I feel a sort of maturing. You want anything except change right at that moment. Anything, but a disturbance! But it usually happens… It could be a house falling down, a friend coming to visit, an onerous task arriving by email.
It could be a pang of guilt felt bumping into an old pal. It could be a sick relative. A punch in the stomach. I want to smell the suburbs. I want to leave the town and walk through the country park by the reservoir. From up at the reservoir, the town gets reduced to a series of Trumpton type emotions and adventures, which turn soaring into songs if I want them to.
I used to love this Scottish poem when I was a school. Now, you could actually see the hills from our classroom when we were being taught this poem. I should have just got up and left; taken the poetry literally. It is championing the possibilities of freedom on a school day in June.
We were asked to enjoy the poem, to empathise with it, but not to enjoy the experience it proposed, which could have been given to us as easily as the ringing of a bell of the unbolting of a door.
I could walk out of here, but I really should stay. What you want to do is an illusion. What you have to do is heavenly. Heavenly purpose, and therefore blessed. Pronounced like the name of the song on this record.
What I want to do is… all over the place. It comes thick and fast — as ideas, desire, and daydreams. A fork in your own metaphysical road in which you are aware of the two choices.
Pretty soon my head starts to hurt with the decision making process so I take time out, and I want to hear Everything But The Girl. I put on Each And Everyone, which was a hit for them in the mid-eighties. I remember reading a review of the group — that they were music for schoolteachers to listen to.
This was meant as dismissive, and it stuck for a while; it put me off liking them more because I was shallow and tempestuous. Oh to be the respite for some overworked and overburdened English Mistress… Take off your heels.
Relax into a hessian armchair. The staffroom is warm.The Bad Shepherds - By Hook Or By Crook (Monsoon) Transfiguring punk classics into folk songs, those who hadn't actually heard the debut album by Adrian Edmondson, Maartin Allcock, Andy Dinan, and Troy Donockley might have thought it was a bit of a gimmick.
Hackensaw Boys - Love What You Do (EMI/Nettwerk) The press-quote byline "think of the Ramones mixed with the Carter Family" may be suitably eye-catching, but it ain't the deal as far I'm concerned.
