Jonathan (Gomez) Ramoutar My intro to TSPSI was at ArcTanGent one year when Damien thanked the post-rock headliners for being "such self-indulgent wanks you'd rather listen to us". This band demands your attention and this album proves they've earned it. Favorite track: I am The Lonely Tourist.

Skibbers Album of the year? Quite possibly. A massive leap on from their last (brilliant) record - put this in your ears. Now. Favorite track: Pierre Brassau.

    Album #2

    A struggle, a battle, a veritable nightmare, a challenge overcome, a joy, a wonder, a labour of love, a triumph.

    In short the album is about contrasts and is a reflection upon ego, self importance, self entitlement, loss of identity, romanticism, triumphant defeatism, defiance, individuality and pride to the point of fault.

    Caprice: a sudden and unaccountable change of mood or behaviour.
    Enchanté: Nice to meet you.

    We hope you enjoy.

Track Name: The Safety Word is Oklahoma
Three, I gave you the world on a plate and this is the thanks I get?

Chasing ghosts above a valley balanced on a burning rope, to teach the bairns that it’s not the light that you shine but, the path you illuminate which matters most 
Don’t stay inside cowering when the sirens grow, and you’ll soon realise there’s no-one listening but, there’s no excuse to pipe-down

If the rebels are late start without them

We can show you the life of the mind tarred and feathered
Gagged and bound on the merry-go-round together
Although the coast is clear the rowers keep on rowing
Though the danger’s dead and gone the rowers keep on rowing.

Let me off

Avert this madness
Track Name: Remystery
It’s romantic in the sense that it’s not romantic at all
There’s a carrot on a string that you can’t reach
There’s an apple in a tree that you can’t eat
and it’s been breaking my heart so I’d better start thinking about drifting

I’ve been knocking on the wrong doors
and picking at the wrong scabs
I’ve been sucking all the wrong dicks trying to keep myself afloat

Afloat

Be sure to bury me left of the middle

It’s poetic in the sense that it’s not poetic at all

There was a sin
There was a child
There was a slip
It raised a smile
There was a grip
There was a wrist
There was a song of sorts
It was remiss

Well, what do I know?
Track Name: Braindead
You could smell that wretched stench for miles and miles and miles
Through their hair and on their breath in varied crooked smile that stench
In every crack and crevice lay that histrionic scent
Keep your fingers, thumbs and elbows off my table you loveless pig

There’s someone in your garden and they’ve come for your kids
There’s someone in your garden and they’re here for your kids

You could feel the decadence in every sight and sound
From the east they scurried west with blatant surreptitiousness
Behind their back a chalice filled with vinegar and piss
Keep your fingers, thumbs and elbows off my table you gutless pig

There’s someone in your garden and they’ve come for your kids
There’s someone in your garden and they’re here for your kids

We’ve led the pale horse to water and it’s name that sits upon her is not death, it’s name is Braindead

Here me now I tell you you’ve been dancing the flamenco to the melody of a dead but pickled myth

There’s someone in your garden and they’ve come for your kids
There’s someone in your garden and they’re here for your kids
Track Name: Carroll A.Deering
You’d better stop the press until someone here tells me what the fuck is happening
Now that I’ve changed my tune……
Oh, sorry I digress
It was only for a sense of meaning

Lame horses
Hospitals
Arsenals and drapes

You’d better change your tune to keep the wolves at bay from the lungs of the eldest son

From the bird that catches the worm

The bird that covets the worm that buried it’s trap in the dead of the night and lays in wait for dawn to break with dynamite by her side

Lame horses
Hospitals
Arsenals and drapes

Get your lying, yellar, no-good keister off my property

Goodnight sweetheart
Track Name: Casanovacaine
Eroding cannons aimed directly at the sun
Sat, poised and silent for their diagnostics
Grey, decommissioned and au fait with la-de-da
They say they prayed for a drought and a mind full of bullets
A voice like a fist screaming, ‘Hallelujah’

Anything could happen though you know it won’t

South of reproach I’m known as Casanovacaine
The man, the myth, the sage, the legend, the patron saint of the undeserving
A modest hand with much to be modest about
My word I’m a cyst for a heart. I’m a lung in a bucket
A thief in the night screaming, ‘Hallelujah’

Anything could happen though you know it won’t

So, down tools
Track Name: The Idiot's Guide to Music
A white whale on a background which consists only of black 
and if it doesn’t suit the scenery? 
Well, I’ll drink to that
Safety’s in the binary
Bêtes noires won’t feed the thick
and it turns my fucking stomach to the point of being sick
Three cheers for onanism
Let the craven lead the blind to bromidic beds and empty spectacles of cheap design
A white whale on a background which consists only of black 
and if it doesn’t suit the scenery?
Well, I’ll drink to that

All they want is ‘Rock steady’

Shakespeare’s in the H20
My favourite colour’s six
Peter Pan with shit for brains still peddling a myth
A white whale on a background which consists only of black 
and if it doesn’t suit the scenery?
Well, I’ll drink to that

All they want is ‘Rock steady’

I read the message between the lines
I caught the captor
I’ve seen the light

All they want is ‘Rock steady'
Track Name: Caprice Enchanté
Last year’s last year’s still ringing though I’ve swallowed the key to the door
I love it
I hate it 
I hate it
I love it
Old enough to know better
Dumb enough to despair

Caprice Enchanté

I leave myself in empty rooms for cheap cigars with new recruits

The sign ahead reads ‘Nowhere fast’
I’m sure we’re already there

Caprice Enchanté
Track Name: It Gave a Lovely Light
There’s a light on me
and it blazes through the night
I’m a candle in the corner and I’m burnt at both ends but, it gave a lovely light
Track Name: Omens
This is the sound of the summer
The aria on the breeze
We’re not the melody makers
We’re not the weavers of dreams

This one’s for the Earls of the discotheque
A cantata for your three left feet
You can have the floor for a minute
when I’ve conceded

Omens

Fresh meat
Old rope
Full steam
No smoke

Always a bridesmaid
Fingered in the backseat
You’ll know I’m done when I’m finished
When I’m replete

This is the sound of the summer
Track Name: Not All Who Wander Are Lost
Maestro, not tonight
Starved but, I’ve had my fill of waiting for the fog to shift
Out in the stables with the show ponies

Shush

With a knowing wink from a sunken brow
Shrugs, imbibes a sigh, speaks
“How did you find me?’’ 
“I am the King Salao”

When the painter isn’t looking
When the feeder doesn’t eat
When the player isn’t listening
When the writer doesn’t read

Caelum

Maestro, surprise surprise
Stuffed but, my sagging skin is waiting for the snow to stick
Down in the basement where soundwaves of hope aren’t even worth the air that they displace

Show ponies

Love,

Me
Track Name: Things to do in Denbigh When You're Dead
Forlorn in the getaway stuck in the mud
In his ears are his fingers
Slaved, set sail and found nothing to love where there was nothing to share
Debris, denizens, luxury and guts
Amour sheathed in regalia
Tacit, tethered to the scow as it sunk over and over again

Euthymia - The new face of the miserable
Euthymia  - The brave face of the miserable

Misborn again ingrate who’s tainted work is never done
It grazes with the beautiful in hope it becomes one
Loaded missives of roaming triffids and rescue missions of faltering fate
Things to do in Denbigh when you’re dead

So, that’s what a real man looks like
This is what a real man looks like

Things to do in Denbigh when you’re dead
Track Name: Pierre Brassau
If a sureness carries with it a plague
and it’s urbane in it’s blandness
It leaves nothing unscathed
Zombie at the ticker tape fete
Harmless and monochromatic
 
Under a fading sun
Another failing engine with an end in sight
Under a fading sun
Another failing engine

When they closed in 
When the massacre came
They were boring 
They were bullshit
Will they paint the town grey?
Probably
Dig a pitiful grave
You’re too late
Too late

Scammed

While the critical say ‘you’re the last of a dying breed’ 
The river makes way for the next of a breeding death
O’ the critical say ‘you’re the last of a dying breed’
The river gives way
Quick, the bastards are coming.

Mountebanks and harlequins
A gift horse with a toothless grin.

Under a fading sun. 
Another failing engine with an end in sight.
Under a fading sun.
Another failing engine.

Roll over Beethoven for average perfection
Track Name: I am The Lonely Tourist
Safeties haven’t been enough to stop the rot
I’ve been out of my lane for longer than I want to
Placate me, you already know the afterglow is all for show
’Been out of my lane but, maybe I’ll be home soon

One last story still up my sleeve
Singing, ‘I am the Lonely tourist’
No more glory killing my sleep
Singing, ‘I am the Lonely tourist’
