A taster of Chas Rigby's forthcoming studio LP.


see the man in the city lights
watching the people fade into the night
half paralyzed as he searches for a light for his tobacco
he has no friends just acquaintances that use him
and the empty bottles at his feet they just abuse him
and when the lights go out he lies down on his bench
and all his dreams fall down

how does it feel/ to be a loner in a big world

see the man in the morning sky
sharing his bedroom with every passer by
he lies asleep but there's a light inside his eye
that has a meaning
he wakes to find that nothing really matters
smacks his lips puts on his boots ties up his tatters
fades in the subway as the sun comes out and scatters all the shadows

how does it feel/to be a loner in a big world

We gave Jon Ronson his first proper job, and we have taken on multi-nationals and governments and won. But best of all, we are still here releasing great music. ... more
