top Take me to the Bridge

Abstract

top maxbygravessmall

This started out inspired by the song “Max Bygraves Killed my Mother” – an obscure silly punk song by Keith Allen’s original band, The Atoms:
“Max Bygraves killed my mother
But he never quite got my dad
He hung around watching television
They got him in the end, ain’t that sad?”.

Then it turned into something more intensely personal.

Prime time in the living rooms
And now all the drapes are closed
Moonlight shinin’ from above
It seems like ev’rybody knows

Oh – something ain’t right

Well, God can turn the world around
And he can push it in the dirt
And he can tear it all apart
And he don’t care who all gets hurt

Oh – something ain’t right

David Byrne

top Another Girl, Another Planet

The Only Ones:

Another Girl Another Planet

Disputed lyrics, but this is what I hear:

I always flirt with death
I look ill but I don’t care about it
I can face your threats and
Stand up straight and tall and shout about it

I think I’m on another world with you
With you
I’m on another planet with you
With you

You get under my skin
I don’t find it irritating
You always play to win
But I don’t need rehabilitating, oh no

I think I’m on another world with you
With you
I’m on another planet with you
With you
Another girl, another planet
Another girl, another planet

Space travel’s in my blood
There ain’t nothing I can do about it
Long journeys wear me out but
I know, I can’t live without it oh no

I think I’m on another world with you
With you
I’m on another planet with you
With you

Another girl, who’s loving you now
Another planet, who’s holding you down
Another planet

Rumoured to be about drugs but all I’m on is coffee.
(Ok there is red wine, but not in the daytime usually!)

Anyway: 65×50cm, Acrylics and spray paint on a spare dirty piece of mount board (no waste here)

Nobody’s gonna tell you
If you don’t know by now
The shock will probably kill you”
