about

INTRO – SOUNDBITES AND CIVIL RIGHTS
It was like a bomb going off inside a cubist painting, the day The Lone Groover turned up on horseback, with his guitar slung over his shoulder like some urban guerilla. The adrenaline pumping sculptural rhythms of the city, cascaded along its ventricles to the sprawling suburbs. Euphoria swept through the market square and trumpets played triumphant. A banner stretched across the avenue read 'Soundbites and civil rights'. I wept beneath the overhanging sun.

(FEAR, LOATHING AND AGGRO, COMING TO A BOOZER NEAR YOU, VERY, VERY SOON).

lyrics

THE BUSINESS
I never really knew the reason
Why I got done for treason
I was minding my own business
When they did the business

I never really knew what hit me
The night that they decided to hit me
I was minding my own business
Must I get a witness

They said
You pushed in at the bar
Who the hell do you think you are
You spilt my beer
And you ain’t from around ‘ere
You ain’t from around ‘ere
You ain’t from around ‘ere

Small town, small mind, small everything
I wish I could float like a butterfly with a bee sting

But it ain’t over til the big lady sings
It ain’t over ‘til the large lady sings
It ain’t over until the big boned lady sings

Shout and Holler
Crash bang wallop
Anyhow
Biff bang pow wow wowwow wow wow wow

(Caulfield)
