The Bats – The Black and The Blue

12 Apr, 2014

Album: Fear of God (1991), Mammoth

Maybe even more difficult than to come up with something ground-breakingly original, is to be superior to the already ploughed thousand times field. You won’t find many cases, in which guitar pop sounds this fresh and zealous. Perfectly harmonized vocals, unworn melodies and the beautiful jangly guitars of The Bats are therefore an unexpected delight. A New Zealand Pavlova with kiwifruit, for your ears.

 

 

[-]  [+]  Lyrics:


Oh now I’m kept here, in this prison if the mind
How long I cannot tell, the truth I’d like to find
Oh you take me down to the black and the blue
I’m sure I don’t know why but I’ll do it al for you.

I see the loch in the gap, in the grey stone wall
The white caps will be gathering, in the meeting hall
Oh you take me down to the black and the blue
I’m sure I don’t know why but I’ll do it all for you.

And they are determined to keep me locked away
My end isn’t certain, it could be many days
Until they find me, it could be many days.

I see the sun coming up I hope to see it go down
They drag me out to see a sight that turns my head around.

Oh you take me down to the black and the blue
I’m sure I don’t know why but I’ll do it all for you

And they are determined to keep me locked away
My end isn’t certain. It could be many days,
until they find me, it could be many days

 

Songwriters: Malcolm Ian Grant / Kaye Adelaide Woodward / Robert Marshall Scott / Paul Christopher Kean
