Billy in Bunbury

IMG_3466

 

It would be fair to say that the Sea Cadets are more fond of cake than a salad.

This new track - 'Billy in Bunbury' uses a 1925 Advertising poem by Ruth Plumly Thompson for the Royal Baking Powder Company over the usual nautical post punk shenanigans. Narrated by Patti Cunningham, the song tells the story of Billy, who wont eat.

A Certain slant of light….

We do love a poem, especially when its about the countryside, death and Winter...

There's a certain Slant of light
Winter Afternoons –
That oppresses, like the Heft
Of Cathedral Tunes –
Heavenly Hurt, it gives us –
We can find no scar
But internal difference
Where the Meanings, are –
None may teach it – Any –
'Tis the Seal Despair –
An imperial affliction
Sent us of the Air –
When it comes, the Landscape listens –
Shadows  hold their breath –
'When it goes, tis like the Distance
On the look of Death –
