The crazy brilliant instrument you hear is a Zither. Thank you to wonderful July Skies (, to whom the Zither actually belongs. I owe him massively.

You'd better hide that chicken from your wife
Or she'll be taking you to dinner on a spine-spaced spur
For God's sake stop inferring from your strife
Or you will find that you've been swallowed by a belly thick with tar

Hold on, grab every arm you find
Hold on and hope your mooring's made of something more than string

Take your drugs, get ill and curse your luck for failing friends
That argue over points that wish their immortality would end
Grow bitter with lament that you'd not fought for finer fortune
Or you won't even manage pissing without crying

This is so new and this smashed to shit shell that you once thought was home
You see was always leaking

So take your heroes out and teach them how it's run
And preach to us your wistful dreams of better means to come
Capsize with your ideals into your eyes
Lets make a fare-dodge convention and fall free into our nights

Let go, there are no arms to find
Let go and know your mooring's made of something more than string

Cat Green Bike UK

Cat Green Bike is the music of Xenia Randle. It started out with just her and her Ukulele and has now grown. Currently on the rota is Joseph Urwin; playing evil synth and low tuned guitar, and one Lee Abecasis; recent live member playing guitar, drums and singing too.

It is hard to describe their music. It's lovely. That's all I'll say.
