    Mike, Yes I absolutely agree, its a wonderful album, it is one I play most often also. The lyrics are some of the best ever eg.

    Shards of shattered twilight slice
    through glacial palaces of ice
    the goddess has her planet-prize
    a wolf with wild fire in its eyes
    Yggdrasil's roots are shaken...

    I am attempting a cover version of Kadu Flyer this summer, those lyrics are very excellent also, I discovered this only recently.


    Enjoyed the Hitchikers Guide movie recently.
    Marvin stole the show with his wonderful depressed life and soul of the party piece!

    Doctor Who is back and thats cool also, a bit like Sci-Fi meets Eastenders with Welsh accents!

    Seduced, shaggy Samson snored.
    She scissored short. Sorely shorn,
    Soon shackled slave, Samson sighed,
    Silently scheming,
    Sightlessly seeking
    Some savage, spectacular suicide.


    Thankyou very much, bows... :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Silence, please dear God, how I wish to think,
    Snip-snip the scissors go, the gossip by the sink,
    Sally don't care if I listen to her prattle,
    She told me once--quite frankly--we're just a bunch of cattle,
    Sadly the locks fall, around my squeaky chair,
    Sable youth no longer, the gray runs through my hair.

    In the barber chair
    I sit
    and stare.
    Aware of hair,
    that is no longer

    I love Lucky Leif, too. An album I frequently replay.
    Calvert and Eno could have gone on to great things!

    As an encore, the next time I return I will perform
    a poem about a haircut! It will be lofty, noble,
    tragic, timeless, full of love, treachery,
    retribution, quiet heroism in the face of
    certain doom! Six lines, cleverly rhymed,
    and every word beginning with the letter "s"!

    Yep.
    Flat banjo strings are mine. Eno wouldn't let me change them!

    Background vocals are also mine! Loved that album. Still do.

    Carefree lyrics from a carefree time

    You can call me a hog-drunken swine because I like drinking wine but I'm really not drunk all the time I was sober when I made up this rhyme. There's Moonshine in the mountains and it's going so cheap so grab yourself a bucket a still's water runs deep. There's an injun who married a squaw 'cause her feet were size twenty four I'll tell you what he marridged her for if you help me get up from this floor. There's Moonshine in the mountains and it's going so cheap so grab yourself a bucket a still's water runs deep. Well the reason this redskin got wed to his freak-footed bride like I said has completely gone out of my head won't you please pass that bottle instead. There's Moonshine in the mountains and it's going so cheap so grab yourself a bucket a still's water runs deep. I remember it much better now it had something to do with a cow she could milk it with one foot and plough with the other ... no that ain't right somehow There's Moonshine in the mountains and it's going so cheap so grab yourself a bucket a still's water runs deep. I recall that they both came to town she was wearing a Buffalo gown and the old man when he saw my frown said she's great when she treads them grapes down There's Moonshine in the mountains and it's going so cheap so grab yourself a bucket a still's water runs deep.
