I can't go to work
Dah Dah (that's the sound of heavy guitar chords)
The boss is a jerk
I ain't got time for this school
The fuckers are fools
I'm going to... explode I've had it!
I lie around with the TV on
I don't do nothin', I just hang around
Black Flag were an inspiration in my teens. We used to cover that song (I've had it) and also Gimmie Gimmie Gimmie The band I was in for a while went through various phases, the most successful of which (our crowning moment of glory was a gig at the Brixton Old White Horse watched by a few devoted fans and some rather confused looking locals) was a hardcore punk phase. We were truly horrendous and had the plug pulled on us mid gig on one occasion when we refused to stop playing. I left when I got a girlfriend out of it!
I love punk. I love the DIY ethic and I guess the punk ethos is still a driving force. (Hard to see behind my disguise as mild mannered, bespectacled bookseller but I shi* you not!)
Get out there.
Don't fake it.
