I was going to do a reading but after yesterday’s screed I thought we could all do with a bit of music. This is a song written in 1982. (The whole thing is copyright Janes Plane; I’d release it under a Creative Commons licence but band members have long since gone their separate ways, I can’t find everyone to make a new agreement, and we own it collectively–so, please, with this one, just behave. I listen to it now and yearn to fix it–a few too many choruses, I think–but, oh, I loved singing that song for an audience. Loved it.
This was recorded in Bridlington, a seaside town in East Yorkshire, at two o’clock in the morning after much drinking. (Hey, it’s method singing…) We thought we were going to change the world. Maybe we did, a little.
Enjoy. Oh, and it should be played loud.
