Every night microwaved TV dinners
Mobile phones make her brain shimmer
Don’t say the c word she got the all clear
That jokes bad taste and so dog eared.

Whiteboy.

Whiteboy2018

Sleeve #92

With Billy Gaffney as cover star, James rerelease « Whiteboy », which has been designed as the best comeback single imaginable from the band. Stupendous lyrics, a pop gold thing with diamonds and bling and very funny with it, too. Tim Booth even gets off one of the all time great self-deprecating lines about aging, – « My mum says I look like Yul Brenner / Too old for Hamlet . Too young for Lear / Got a shaved head lost weight fakir / Got a pierced lip cos it’s hip to appear queer ».
