First single; NOBODY WANTS TO DIE
Jay Buchanan frontman): “You live your life knowing that the sword of Damocles is hanging over your head by a thread. You’re fully aware of the impermanence of your existence, but you can’t think about it all the time—or it’ll fuck your life up. I used to work in a mortuary as a service advisor for a few years, driving and opening the hearses. I’d attend three funerals per day. Sometimes, they would be filled over capacity. Other times, it would just be me, a priest, and a hole in the ground. It doesn’t matter who you are; the great equalizer is coming. I was thinking of this because the music sounded like pursuit.”
Nobody Wants To Die detonates forthwith and never looks back.
A nasty fireball this is. Do wanna kiss a dead man? asks/screams
Jay Buchanan. I don’t think so. Let’s go ballistic instead.
