A pseudo event A pseudo event for you A bomb on a train On this ship or that plane Skyscrapers bite the dust A pseudo event A pseudo event for you A network of caves and Anthrax sent by mail A tyrant's statue felled Pseudo event team for hire Spectacles to sell your every desire Bugger the public's right to know Our events team we stage all the best shows A pseudo event A pseudo event for you the boy in a balloon the first man on the moon bloodletting marathon Pseudo event team for hire Spectacles to sell your every desire Bugger the public's right to know Our events team we stage all the best shows Pseudo event team for hire

These great icons They're built to last In concrete, steel and glass They scrape the sky Reflect the sun Impress everyone These great icons They're built to last Punctured, blown to dust 15 inch steels Wider than men Red hot, sheered and bent These great i-cons We were shocked right to the core As these icons hit the floor Crushed like two croutons Great icons built to last On TV, torn apart These great icons They're built to last In concrete, steel and glass They scrape the sky Reflect the sun Impress everyone We were shocked right to the core As these icons hit the floor Crushed like two croutons And we're utterly devoured When two sink within an hour Crushed like two croutons Crushed Shocked right to the core We were shocked right to the core As these icons hit the floor Crushed like two croutons Great icons built to last On TV, torn apart Torn apart These great icons

I once bet the earth It cost me my job six billion dollars I would play with fire You would live the lie six billion dollar La la la, la la la La la Love your Rolex Love your Michael Douglas Love your face cream You loved the money when I was raking it in Six billion dollar La la la, la la la Love your Rolex Love your Michael Douglas Love your face cream You loved the money

Dark out here I'm far from home Cold and lonely I'm subaltern Lone, dethroned And jettisoned Sacked and sanctioned Without a phone Allow me to find a safe home soon And discover water on the moon away from clones automatons When I've saved you I'll feel jubilant Woohoo, woohoo jubilant! Woohoo, woohoo Numb, lifeless Each zone I've flown Emoticons So monotone But what's this I see? A fish filled sea sun, soil, land and seeds beckon me Allow me to orbit round your sun You're fun loving, young, jubilant What's not to love about your place You rant and rave, I feel jubilant Woohoo, woohoo jubilant! Woohoo, woohoo I feel jubilant! jubilant! I feel jubilant! jubilant! Woohoo, woohoo

Christmas Eve is here See the festive cheer Across the barbed wire Not one shot's been fired Let us toast those missed Every hug, laughter, smile is revived by this sudden surprise Christmas Armistice We recall a kiss Like sunshine to mist It blew us away So much warmth to savour How the love we missed Every hug, laughter, smile is revived by this sudden surprise Christmas Armistice Let Christmas reign where all the poppies grow Send love and joy Let your emotions flow Christmas Eve is here See the festive cheer Across the barbed wire Not one shot's been fired Let us toast those missed Every hug, laughter, smile is revived by this sudden surprise Christmas Armistice Let Christmas reign where all the poppies grow Send love and joy Let your emotions flow

There's a kind of man will travel we can train this man to lie he can make men kill and torture bleed them dry In the Middle East we will create heat There's a truck full of explosives and a trigger in this phone get a man to drive to market break some bones There's a death squad in this movie called sectarian violence we will bomb a mosque and murder They're incensed In the Middle East we will create heat In the Middle East we will drag our feet From the Middle East they'll be no retreat

So we fight We shout We cry We long To love But learn To buy So we rage We punch The sky We long To live But learn To bide time In A&E we have faith To stitch back up our wounds In A&E we have faith So the blood Is real It flows The cut Is deep The wound It grows So you stuck You stoked You froze The bag I slung It cut your big toe In A&E we have faith To straighten broken bones In A&E we have faith In A&E we have faith To fix and send us home In A&E we have faith

Such a good feeling Early summer, in love with life, we're apart yet connected by the same sun, moon and stars You make me want to dance, turn me onto romance we relax on the beach, you see the kid in me Love is simplicity In love with life, it's such a good feeling In love with life, nothing can bring us down No frowns, no fear, these tears in my eyes are here cause I'm so happy We are singing, in love with life, we'll go far In love with life, it's such a good feeling In love with life, nothing can bring us down My friends we're here to celebrate the family we have become In love with life, it's such a good feeling In love with life, nothing can bring us down No frowns, no fear, these tears in my eyes are here cause I'm so happy In love with life, it's such a good feeling in love In love with life, it's such a good feeling in love Such a good feeling

Running to safety from a home broken to rubble, burned and war torn Seeking out shelter, family spurred on by hunger, thirst & disease From the rubble of homes hit by foreign fighters you lifted me, lift me to safety Travelled to London, Westerly Stuck by a tunnel, can't swim this sea From the rubble of homes hit by foreign fighters You lifted me, lift me to safety From the rubble of towns hit by foreign fighters, emerge a brave band of survivors

This love is forever This time it's forever Our love will forever Heal each other We will recall A voice, so warm Smile, a style, a dance The gift that's laughter This love is forever This time it's forever My happiness has hit an all time high Asleep here beside you I can't believe my good luck and I thank my lucky stars And when you go I know that this was just the start And when you leave we know that we won't be apart This time it's forever This love is forever Call and it will stick around This time it's forever My happiness has hit an all time high Asleep here beside you I can't believe my good luck and I thank my lucky stars And when you go I know that it's the love we need And when you leave I trust you still will trust in me This time it's forever This love is forever Now the curtain closes on me This love is forever

Why are you killing me, killing me, in the name of liberty? What would I not confess, what would I not just sign if I'd been tied and drowned 183 times? I might just be your Mastermind What would I not pretend, what would I not espouse If I'd been tied and bound, beaten and hung upside down? I might just be your Mastermind I might just be your Mastermind Why are you killing me, killing me, in the name of liberty? I might just be your Mastermind! Why are you killing me, killing me, in the name of liberty?

about

Songwriter Gordon Glass is joined by Jon Poole (The Dowling Poole, Cardiacs) on guitar. Young singers Charlie Barbara and Ella Rae debut.

This is music stripped to the bone, or perhaps ripped wide open. More electronic this time. The voice is exposed. The soundscape is vast and sparsely populated. The guitar may weep, but more often it coaxes, energises and resolves to push on.

There's funk, dub and ethereal beauty poking through the clouds. Even a joyful spine tingling moment or two may await those ready to feel it... Headphones on, eyes shut, relax into it.

“Some exquisite moments... Poignant, thought-provoking, political" Tommok
