    'BLOOD' is the first of our final Swan Song set of three albums on super deluxe limited edition red spatter vinyl / digital.

    BLOOD is 'a set of songs for Noir movies' - ten tales of romantic revenge, heartbreak, dreams and urban psychodrama - with a nod (via a deranged cover version of Poker Face) to our swinging past.

    Haunted waltzes, piano interludes and cinematic electronica provide the backdrop for barflies, torch singers and femme fatales to perform a suite of songs channelling inspirations including Gainsbourg, Chris Isaak, Julie London and Polly Harvey.

    It is a farewell 'cabaret noir’ featuring some of our favourite friends and collaborators including Oriana Curls, GG McEwen and Sephine Llo.

    The vinyl comes with a special inner sleeve containing a Noir story and a download token for high resolution digital files of the songs.

    You can choose between Blood Red Vinyl or Blood Spattered vinyl - or get the super limited edition with Bonus Album 'Tape Dust Memories' on special edition 'Blood Bag' cassette - (see separate bundle) with a download token too.

He ain't no baby, he's sure a shambles He looks all pork pie, he looks love-handles He ain't no poet, he ain't no boho He’s just a junkie, he's just a no-go He's blood-knuckled and dusted He's so over, he's busted He got all skinned up, he got all chewed up He dates a pin-up, ’she has him spewed up He 's like weasel, run out of diesel A piss-artist with no easel He's blood-knuckled and dusted He's so over, he's busted I love the state you’re in You get beneath my skin It makes me want to sin But where would I begin? He's such a liar, he's all desire Still believes that he's the messiah He'll get dead-headed, he'll get so shredded He'll blow his mind out in the fire He's blood-knuckled and dusted He's so over he's busted I love the state you’re in You get beneath my skin It makes me want to sin But where would i begin?

Silicone 03:45
You got the claws and you got the teeth I'll be the wolf, you can be the sheep I'll stalk your dreams and I’ll haunt your sleep With a bleeding nose and a fake ID You're a neon flicker, a discount sticker An archangel that drinks paint stripper You're all messed up, I should take you home You look like love but you taste like Silicone You're what I love, you're a concrete dove A broken nail in a latex glove You're Elephant and Castle, an Amazon parcel Fractured white boy, metal metatarsal My heart blows out every time we meet By the burned-out payphone on your street You're all dressed up, I should take you home You look like love but you taste like Silicone You look like love, You look like love But you taste like Silicone Well I can't deny what I've become I can't describe all the shit I've done I’m gonna’ get stealthy, gonna’ get healthy Get shacked up with someone wealthy In a dirty world could you make me clean? Be a starlit sky through a cracked windscreen? If I 'fess up will you take me home? I just need love that don't taste like Silicone Silicone I just need love, I just need love That don't taste like Silicone, Silicone I just need love , I just need love

The Cafe Anglais is oddly vacant You sit at the bar and order a drink You take out your pen and write down a name On a currency note you leave as the tip The door from the street is softly opened Someone approaches and calls out your name They pull out a gun and point at your head You don't move a muscle you’re sure that you're dead You knew that they'd find you And now they have You know we all need to know What happens next..

Don't promise me your love - I don't need it Don't swear I'm all you want - I don't believe it You think I'm quite a prize Considerate and wise Well consider this advice: beat it Why does every man I meet think they can sway me? Believe that they're unique, the one to save me? They vow they'll win me round Every single one's a clown Build me up, I'll burn ‘em down - no maybes You say you know my true feelings But if you did you wouldn't be there kneeling You say I don't know love tortures You know shit - I've been hung drawn and quartered Go find yourself some other lover A sweet and trusting type, just like your mother But if you wish my dear, to take a risk my dear With promises, well here's another: "I'll make you pay the price for all the cheating, all the lies And every promise I once believed in”

Torched Song 04:11
Well, I need something to soothe this pain To cool the lava you pump through my veins ‘Cause I’m burning, I’m burning up for you And, I need something to quench this fire Before it becomes a funeral pyre ‘Cause I’m burning, I’m burning up for you You struck the sparks, you fanned the flames in me And now my heart’s a blazing ruin You say that you were only foolin’ Don’t walk away, don't do me wrong Don’t leave me singing this torched song ‘Cause I’m burnin’, I’m burnin’ up for you Your love’s a drug, I’ve just got to drop It hurts me so much but It makes me so hot I’m burnin’, I’m burnin’ up for you You struck the sparks, you fanned the flames in me And now my heart’s a blazing ruin You say that you were only foolin’ Don’t walk away, don't do me wrong Don’t leave me singing this torched song ‘Cause I’m burnin’, I’m burnin’ up for you Yeah I’m burnin’, I’m burnin’ up for you
9.
Is life basically lovely? Or really just short, brutal and ugly? I've had it great to date and if I'm lucky I'll avoid all the shit ‘til there’s six foot of it dug above me Is love able to save us? When beauty has gone and flesh has betrayed us? My love, will you still be mine when I’m falling? Will I still be yours when death comes calling? How thin is the ice upon which we’re skating So don't be surprised to realise that it may be breaking We’re just skeletons in waiting So give more then you get and enjoy the rest til it’s taken How thin is the ice upon which we’re skating So don't be surprised to realise that it may be breaking We’re just skeletons in waiting So give more then you get and enjoy the rest til it’s taken
