I was sad to hear about the death of Gavin Clark, who died on Monday, a fine fine singer. (Is it just me or is the beginning of this song a sample chopped up of Sam Hemptons guitar from the middle of Candlelight? It sounds EXACTLY the same?)
Here’s a great documentary about Gavin by Shane Meadows…
Noisey are extremely proud to present “The Living Room” – a new film from Shane Meadows, the man behind films such as “This Is England” and “Dead Man’s Shoes”. The film is about Shane’s long term friend and collaborator Gavin Clark, whose music features in many of Shane’s projects.
Update: On Monday morning (February 16, 2015), Gavin Clark shockingly passed away at the age of 46. A peerless songwriter and poet, Gavin is infamous for his work with Sunhouse and Clayhill, and had collaborated heavily with UNKLE. He is also much loved for his musical collaboration with visual director Shane Meadows on films such as Somers Town and This Is England, plus the recent live re-scoring of Dead Man’s Shoes.

William Burroughs – A Thanksgiving Prayer
Thanks for the wild turkey and the passenger pigeons, destined to be shit out through wholesome American guts.
Thanks for a continent to despoil and poison.
Thanks for Indians to provide a modicum of challenge and danger.
Thanks for vast herds of bison to kill and skin leaving the carcasses to rot.
Thanks for bounties on wolves and coyotes.
Thanks for the American dream,
To vulgarize and to falsify until the bare lies shine through.
Thanks for the KKK.
For nigger-killin’ lawmen, feelin’ their notches.
For decent church-goin’ women, with their mean, pinched, bitter, evil faces.
Thanks for “Kill a Queer for Christ” stickers.
Thanks for laboratory AIDS.
Thanks for Prohibition and the war against drugs.
Thanks for a country where nobody’s allowed to mind the own business.
Thanks for a nation of finks.
Yes, thanks for all the memories– all right let’s see your arms!
You always were a headache and you always were a bore.
Thanks for the last and greatest betrayal of the last and greatest of human dreams.
…. and mickey dee’s and subway and black friday…to mention just a few.
