THE FALL : YOUR HEART OUT [DRAGNET, 1979]

Στο πλαίσιο μιας νιουγουεϊβίζουσας διάθεσης, όσο αυτή κρατήσει, θα ακούσουμε κάποια κομμάτια από τα late ’70s – early ’80s ξεκινώντας από αυτό εδώ.
Από το
Dragnet – το πρώτο άλμπουμ που άκουσα απ’ τους Fall.

In the context of a new wave-ish mood, as long as it lasts, we will hear some songs from the late ’70s – early ’80s, starting with this one.
From
Dragnet, first album I ever heard from The Fall
.

Just take for instance
A time of great depression
Fade out of reason
Bad time’s in season
Don’t shut your heart out
Don’t cry your eyes out
Don’t cry for me, Mexico
Or Savage Pencil
I’m nearly healthy
And they try to take my eyes out
Friends try to work my soul out
But I don’t sing, I just shout
Heavy clout, heart out
Now here’s a joke
To cheer you up:
Old times no surgeon
Just magicians and dungeons
There they take your heart out
With a sharp knife
It wasn’t fake
They had no anesthetic.
That joke’s pathetic.
Just look at me
Too much speed
But very plain
You’re lucky, friend.
You’ve got one to take out
You know what I’m talking about!
I don’t sing I just shout
All on one note.
Sing, sing, sing, sing
Look at me, I just ding
Heart is out, out, it’s out

    I like this! Don’t know the band. 60’s rock with a twist of something modern… a bit different! Thanks !

    One of the top British New Wave bands. Mark E. Smith, the leader – singer-songwriter was a great guy. Died 3 years ago, aged 60.
    Thank you!
