Tourettes on his "Childhood" a song from Dead Dogs Dance

Tourettes - ChildHood

 when i was young my parents used to lie to me a lot
my mother once told me the water from the hot tap was poisonous 
on another occasion
my father said the sound of the waves breaking was a Taniwha
now i have a reckless imagination

my folks were working class hippies
which meant we ate organic granny smith apples
but it was ok to swear at the television
there was always a pack of dogs in our house
all of which my mother had composed songs for
my father smoked weed and played scrabble with local madmen
sometimes he'd sit for hours without speaking and then suddenly say something like Reconbockulating and refuse to elaborate
for a few months to rebel my sister became a born again Christian
and i was forbidden to eat mc Donald's or watch the A team
so i survived on Volgels bread and Easten European coming of age films
its funny how everyone thinks their normal

at age 7 my heros were Arnold schwarzenegger , Elvis Presley and the Velvet Underground
the boogieman was Robert Muldon
at gay fawkes we'd burn crude effigies of him in screaming bonfires
i remember protests
against the springbok tour
against Rogernomics
against nuclear testing
carnivals of desperate rage 
parading down queen street
amongst this unrest 
the rainbow warrior came to town
i had imagined something majestic
after all it was going save us from nuclear holocaust
but it was just a big green boat
and then some french spies blew it up
i had the same name as one of the agents 

at my primary school
the decal rating was so low it had a decibel point in front of it
once the mayor came to talk to the school 
we all sat on the field
while she gave her speech two dogs started fucking behind her
and this says all you need to know about Grey Lynn primary

everybody in the neighborhood was fluent in violence
they spoke it at school, the teachers to the students the parents to the teachers the students to me
my mother would scream it at us in the bath waving wooden spoons and plastic sandals
my father would mutter it throwing toys and televisions out onto the road
the older kids would hiss it in the streets after dark
to this day i understand the language perfectly but cant speak a word of it to save myself

my mother believed we wouldn't live to grow up
that nuclear bombs would rain down on us out any second
so she let us run wild in the sewers beneath our street
high on brown sugar and nightmares
it was the 80's things were different then

when i was young
it seemed like everything was crazy.
now I'm older i know that it is.

AWOLNATION - New Single 'Windows'



"Windows" finds AWOLNATION mastermind Aaron Bruno searching for a balance between blissful and abrasive: Over sparse, bass-heavy production, Bruno lets his voice run ragged before jumping into his upper register as a soft piano line tumbles out of nowhere. Bit by bit, the song melds the two sections together until they combine at the end, as Bruno howls over thumping drums and delicately anthemic piano. excerpt courtesy of ROLLING STONE

Sam Smith Winning best Stolen Song of the Year - He's Still Great!!

Man its pretty funny how Sam Smith had a clean sweep of the Grammy's for a song he didnt write ;)  I heard that Tom Petty got a certificate to acknowledge that he had contributed to the making of "Stay With Me"  Smith's questionable attributed re-hash of " I Wont Back down" that won best song and record of the year. They give out certificates to people who have had their songs sampled!?

And then the academy turned around and didnt give Mr Petty a look in for his first good album in a while that was quite successful "Hypnotic Eye". If I was his manager I would have told the people who run the Grammy's 'hey you better make sure Tom Petty wins rock album of the year or else he might just head up on stage like Kanye West did to Taylor Swift and go one step further than grabbing the mic instead taking the award from Sam golden boy Smith!!!" haha

Anyway Volita Pearl Bioletti​ should be happy she said hey thats a Tom Petty song as soon as she heard "Stay with Me". Myself I'm still happy because Sam Smith is great singer one of the best artists currently its just unfortunate he didnt clear the song before releasing it I quick phone call wouldve saved everyone a lot of problems :)

I blame his co-writers for putting him in such an awkward position Sam didnt even know the song but gets all the flack from suppossed song-writers man stealing a song aint song writing haha

Speaking of sampled songs Gotye sampled a tune for 'Someone that I You'se To Know" anyone seeing a pattern here!
