Soundtrack Brexit

Message Bookmarked

I know there are a lot of people venting their UK referendum dismay with wit and vitriol - thought I would start a thread to see if ILM can compile a decent soundtrack for the Brexit process.
My starter is a bit of a weak one so I'm hoping it will be quickly surpassed.

Brexit had me thinking about this excellent Tom Ewing review of Mouldy Old Dough (which was the UK #1 single at the time the act of parliament by which the UK joined the EEC was given Royal assent)

“Mouldy Old Dough” is residual in a cultural sense – it’s harking back to knees-up piano parties and the stomp and clap of pub music – but it also really sounds like residue. There’s something curdled about it, odd and off, like Winifred Atwell tunes left in the damp. This isn’t old music lovingly preserved and recreated, it’s old music stuffed in a boxroom or a cellar, left to rot and ferment until its queasy return. Its title is literal – the stuff of former pop gone bad.

But this dredge through the silt and leaf litter of English pop seems to burrow into something broader and deeper: the decaying country itself, sinking into post-Imperial dementia, singing old songs to itself as the batteries run down and the lights go out.

they seemed strung together
like a bunch of keys
and the way they stared
such grim eyes and blank lips
they wished you were dead

we asked them how they felt
about the lives beyond their eyes
with great effect, with great effect like oracles
they finally replied:
we just lie back and watch them burn

I don’t know where I’ve come from
I don’t know where I’m off to
And I need to find a way out
And he’s here to help me find it

Exit Flagger
Exit Flagger
Exit Flagger
Exit Flagger
I'm not going to race you today

I need a life the same as
And I don't believe in anything
I promise to leave you one of these days
I promise it'll be real soon.

Exit Flagger

I'm not going to race you today

I promise to leave you
I promise to leave you
I promise to leave you
I promise to leave you

Hit the North
Hit the North
(My cat says, "Eee-ack")

95% of hayseeds or corn-pone, guaranteed
(Hit the North)
(Hit the North)
Computers infest the hotels
Cops can't catch criminals
But what the heck, they're not too bad, they talk to God
Religious

(Manacled to the city)
(Manacled to the city)
Hit the North

All estate agents alive yell down nights in hysterical breath
There's no lights so pretty
Those big, big, big wide streets
Those useless MPs

(Savages)
Hit the North
Hit the North
Hit the North
Hit the North

From the back third eye psyche
the reflected mirror of delirium
East ender and Victoria's lager
the induced call, mysterious, comes forth

Hit the North
(Savages)
Hit the North
