- I Sleep with Their Bones by Eric Paul
1 review. Add your own review.
Bit early (9:30am) in the morning to be reviewing the first spoken word release from Eric Paul. He's the lyrically perverse genius you'll no doubt be aware of as the front-man of Arab On Radar (and subsequently Chinese Stars and Doomsday Student), a band that, for me, changed the notion of what Punk Rock could and should be. Their music was an outrageously noisy assault on the senses, trading in thunderous blasts of no-wave-jazz-skronk with a complete disregard for the future well-being of your ears and mind. The majority of Eric Paul's lyrics were tough to pull out of the mix though the occasional line would drift clearly from the fudge of brutalised rhythms and whining guitar licks - a particular favourite being 'I removed my foreskin to interfere with procedure. I tied one end of the rope to the tip of my prick and the other to the exhaust of my girlfriend's car. 'Hey, I said, put the peddle to the metal' (from 'Biggest Prick In The Union'). Here you get 33 spoken word pieces narrated rather soberly by the artist. Some are taken from his book 'I Offered Myself As The Sea' and have hilariously perverse with titles like 'Three Moms', 'My Runny Nose Killed My Girlfriend And My Cat' and 'I've Been Toilet Training For 29 Years'. It's too early to assess this on genuine artistic or poetic merit and, what the fuck do I know anyway? I'm just pleased one of the more devious lyricists of my youth has chosen to get into the spoken word game.
