White Rose, Red Blood!
I am very much looking forward to the latest Richard Hawley cd.
He’s talking with Alex from T’monkeys here. Two things occurs firstly he always looks wonderfully seedy. The greased DA haircut helps and the big gebs and this all mixes with his rock start pallour to make him look slightly dodgy, top stuff though.
Also top marks for use of the Queens English (i.e. Elizabeth 1st that is), nice use of "thine" in the interview.
" I remember it really well. I were nine, laying in bed at night quite late, arsing about with my guitar, as I always have and always will. So my dad came up and were right pissed off. "What are you doing still awake?" And I said, "I've got this tune and I don't know whose it is." I thought I heard it somewhere. So he said, "Well, play it me." And I played it him. And he goes, "It's thine. Now go to fucking bed." And he turned the light off, and I was laying there getting my head around the concept of making music myself. I make songs up in bizarre places. Pushing kids on swings. In the middle of Tesco's. "
Ps my spell check is obviously hopeless at editing sonnets (or even Heart beat!) etc as “thine” isn’t in the dictionary
