lyrics

Somewhere there’s a warehouse, inside is a throwaway tune
Nearby stands a man who insists that he’s making ‘Un Chien Andalou’

His motive’s taking the form
Into a world that’s lukewarm
Where to react is conform
Where you can mount a defence
Of the work of malcontents
Under Vostell’s influence

We’re at the very nerve centre of art/video cliché
I think it’s gonna turn out alright
We’re at the very nerve centre of art/video cliché
We’re gonna take it right through the night
We’ll be synchronised
You’ll be hypnotised
And be paralysed by the sight
Of the imagery
And the irony
Of the way we’ve captured the light

Pop culture’s a buzz phrase that is very useful today (the)
Qualifier“culture” gives room for interpretation without disdain

Mention the French avante-garde
And Dada, Bauhaus, Weimar
Say “manifesto” not “art”
Although these words are in chunks
Of rhyming dictionary bunk
Never confess – and you’ve won

We’re at the very nerve centre of art/video cliché
I think it’s gonna turn out alright
We’re at the very nerve centre of art/video cliché
We’re gonna take it right through the night
Can you see the depth?
Can you sense the depth?
Is my vision clearly explained?
It’s the politics
Of expressionists
And the symbolism ingrained

Ooh Schoenburg yeah yeah I love his stuff
Oh oh yeah Hannah Hoch she really rocks

Spray Lancashire, UK

Ric and Jen were members of 21st century pop terrorists The Cuban Boys, who topped John Peel's Festive 50 and the UK singles charts.

Their offshoot project Spray predicted the electropop boom, unfortunately much too early for them to cash in. They released two albums in 2002 and 2006.

In 2016 they released their first full length studio album in 10 years - 'Enforced Fun'.
