Bill Callahan – Let’s Move To The Country (2020; Gold Records)

Hello, I’m Johnny Cash scherzt der gute Bill Callahan zu Beginn seiner mittlerweile 18. Platte – Arbeiten unter dem Moniker Smog miteingerechnet. Gold Record ist vielleicht nicht seine beste Platte, aber dafür wahrscheinlich diejenige mit den besten Songzeilen seiner Karriere. Generell hat Bill einiges zu erzählen. Grosse Worte, meist mit sparsamer Musik untermalt. Als Anpspieltipp werfe ich mal die leicht umgeschriebene Version seines 99-er “Hits” Let’s Move to the Country” in die Runde. Let’s start a family/ Let’s have a baby/ Or maybe two. Goldig wie der Herbst.

#Eid Ma Clack Shaw

Working through death’s pain

Last night I swear I felt your touch
Gentle and warm
The hair stood on my arms
How, how, how?

Show me the way, show me the way, show me the way
To shake a memory

I flipped my forelock, I twitched my withers, I reared and bucked
I could not put my rider aground
All these fine memories are fuckin’ me down

I dreamed it was a dream that you were gone
I woke up feeling so ripped by reality
Love is the king of the beasts
And when it gets hungry it must kill to eat
Love is the king of the beasts
A lion walking down city streets

I fell back asleep some time later on
And I dreamed the perfect song
It held all the answers, like hands laid on

I woke halfway and scribbled it down
And in the morning what I wrote I read
It was hard to read at first but here’s what it said

Eid ma clack shaw
Zupoven del ba
Mertepy ven seinur
Cofally ragdah

Show me the way, show me the way, show me the way
To shake a memory
