kulcha tursdy: Stereophonics

I’ve been listening to Stereophonics a lot lately, and strangely enough they seem to turn up in the most unexpected places..  Last week, on the station platform waiting for the train to London, the rail employee on the ticket gate had her headphones on and was singing ‘Dakota’.. In the morning news program about the lovely weather we’re having – backing track = ‘Have a Nice Day’… 

So I thought I’d bow to the inevitable and give you some lyrics here to ‘Pick a Part That’s New’.  If you want to hear the song, try YouTube  (and It Means Nothing and Dakota are also fabulous, and I mentioned Maybe Tomorrow yesterday – fuck it, the entire Stereophonics back catalog is well worth a listen! :)

Pick A Part That’s New

I’ve never been here before
didn’t know where to go
never met you before

I’ve never been to your home
that smells not unknown
foot steps made of stone

walking feels familiar
you can do all the things that you like to do
all around underground pick a part that’s new
you can do all the things that you like to do
all around upside down pick a part that’s new

people drinking on their own
push buttons on the phone
was i here once before

is that my voice on the phone
that last drink on my own
did i ever leave at all

confusion’s familiar

you can do all the things that you like to do
all around underground pick a part that’s new
you can do all the things that you like to do
all around upside down pick a part that’s new
so what’s new to you?

It’s Kelly Jones’ voice that really does it – he’s got this fantastically ragged quality in his voice, like he’s been screaming for hours – except he hasn’t.  :)

And on an aside, Steve Kilbey’s blog today is also music related – “at what point can noise be called music?”  Check it out for a slightly more philosophical discussion.
