STRAY NOTES:

BELLY’S KING SHOULD HAVE BEEN LISTED AS ONE OF THE BEST US RECORDS OF THE YEAR IT WAS RELEASED (1995). STREAM IT ON THEIR OFFICIAL SITE IF YOU DON’T HAVE IT.

THE CHILLY COLD CAVE DEPTHS OF THE DARKEST CURE MOODS IS EQUALLY GOOD ON A HOT- NO AIR CONDITIONER DAY AS THE COOLEST AND CHILLEST REGGAE AND ROCKSTEADY.

WHICH IS THE MORE FATALISTIC AND EERILY DEPRESSED ABOUT THE FUTURE?

A)PAUL SIMON’S BOY IN THE BUBBLE OR B)NOTHING’S TIRED OF TOMORROW?

ANSWER: A

LYRICS I WROTE DOWN CAUSE I LOVE THEM:

“KEEP IT FAR FROM HOME” – NOTHING – HYMN TO THE PILLORY

“I’M NOT THE HERO I COULD BE BUT I’M NOT THE DOG I WAS” – BELLY – NOW THEY’LL SLEEP

“LOVE DON’T LIVE HERE ANYMORE / DON’T COME KNOCKING ON MY DOOR”…

“SO WHY WOULD I RUN? WHERE WOULD I RUN TO?” – THE JESUS AND MARY CHAIN- WAR ON PEACE

“JESUS BRILLIANT, YOU USED TO LAUGH”…

“THIS TOP

IS

THE

PLACE

WHERE NOBODY GOES” – THE CURE, THE TOP
