The Blunderbuss Press review our Dot 2 Dot festival appearance in Poetic style

Cursor Major tear open the Louisiana 24 May 2014

 

Sifting my way through

expectant performance admirers

barely out of bed

freshly donned socks

intimate space

predominant brown

imagine us miniaturised

and squeezed in this box

 

movement within

those shrouded in half light

wires and valves

where right angles converge

a man sewn together

from shadows of curls

his comrades in foreground

bohemian injected standard office wear

sprouting retro-floral patterns

defiantly protruding facial hair

futuristic fairground attraction

amassing intensity

our hum-drum anxieties, they quickly submerge

 

An angular drum crack

bludgeons the air

electronic mouthfuls

a melodious marmite

universally enjoyed

warble-tastic T-Rex techniques

delightfully employed

as they jerk and judder

side to side in this box

images of Brian Ferry being force fed the buzzcocks

 

A change of colour

interlude of a kind

from spiral staircase climbing

and descent on a slide

Now notes impale and slash

tales of those kinky, bizarre and tongue tied

psychedelically staggering

like a slow motion drunk

if zombies could break-dance

and cross footed to punk

If The Killers possessed world worn hindsight

and some bin lids in their mix

disregarding directions

on which they once relied

screaming despair with a Prince-like swing

cursing their existence for its duality and tricks

 

Steroids re-applied

to a laid back metronome

negatively, positively

like a Buddy Holly epiphany

These gloc-a-lot harmony smugglers

hopping from musical stone to stone

sour centred pop confectionary

screaming the poetic phrases

containing a gleeful yet heart broken tone

 

An assessment of observers

from waist and below

reveals the twisting of knees

tapping of toes, fluttering of hips

underneath a sea steady sway

rolling of shoulders

and the curling of lips

As they playfully conclude

with a zigzagging tale

a Welshman we all know

a classy casio-esque score

worthy of children’s TV show

as you join in the tune

and hum it all the way home

 

As bewildered listeners disperse

Fuzz still tingling their ears

out of all those shrunk and placed inside

these box-bound buskers

encouraged such growth

The walls buckled it appears, with the tenacity they applied
