Spork (Japanese bonus track)

about

This song wasn't right at the time we completed "In Love With..", something was off.
Mark, who joined shortly after the LP release, simply suggested "more guitars!". And he was right, it totally lifted the track, and I regretted not having it on the LP proper.
Thus when And Records from Japan approached us to release the LP there, I was delighted to get it shunted back on, think it's one of the highlights of that period!

lyrics

theres a lotta life left in those eyes
but every blessing is a curse
as we grow older (every day)
as we grow up (and face the world)

innocence gets trampled underfoot
and all the things we're told are true
get thrown away (or swept aside)
or left to rot (add to our waste)

want to implode but i can't find the fuse
want to see god but i have no beliefs
if i close my eyes will i wake up ok
if i pray to you would you scream out 'hooray'?

in my weakness i'm a small child
full of small hopes of some solace

innocence (gets in the way)
open wide (open your eyes)

want to implode but i can't see the fuse
want to see god but i have no beliefs
if i close my eyes will i wake up ok
if i pray to you wheres my 'hooray'?

about

The Dudley Corporation Dublin, Ireland

The Dudley Corporation are Joss, Mark and Dudley.

Dublin gents with 4 LPs under their decaying belts.

In brief, they play short rock songs with wit, verve, romance and booksmarts.

Their shows are notoriously frenzied, visceral and exciting affairs with one song careering into another or stopping on a sixpence, as they say in football parlance.

They are quite old.
