It's an art-form. Logisitcs. Rock logisitics. A skill you refine carefully over time. Trial and error - a lot of error. In fact, in the main, it's error that paves our way. But without failure there could be no growth so, we don't mind.
Rock music is not a walk in the park. The gnostic postures you see us demonstrating on stage aren't a display of ego, they're a display of relief, loss of mind and compensation for the trials of the day's grinding petro-dollar lined rock logisitcs. It's a gestural narrative, a reorganisation and reinterpretation of everyday street-level psycho-social misery; a way of being in the world that does not include the supermarket, atm, chemist, 'cunt', 'dick', stop-go, receipt, angry national party supporters, pocket, coin, dog-shit, stroller, lint, gum...
It's a fairly well-trodden routine, in fact its painfully old-hat but a rocking we must go. And so we did.
