about

Zea Amsterdam, Netherlands

Arnold de Boer deploying guitar and sampler for an almighty bout of crazily high energy songs - urgent lyrics over guitar, roughshod beats and grimy bass lines. Joyfully obstinate, wonderfully bonkers.

Track Name: Bourgeois Blues
And your wife
And your settee
Don't wanna be mistreated by neo-bourgeoisie
I'm in a bourgeois town
I'm in a bourgeois town

I read the newspaper
What do i see
A politician with kids doing his best for me
I'm in a bourgeois town
I'm in a bourgeois town
I've got the bourgeois blues
Go spread the news around

I walk into a park
for some fresh air
I meet a journalist with no money for beer
I'm in a bourgeois town
I'm in a bourgeois town
I've got the bourgeois blues
Go spread the news around
Track Name: It's Quiet
It’s quiet, it’s quiet
No cars, no motorcycles
It’s quiet, it’s quiet
No dogs not anything like it
No fighting neighbors, television
Birds or babies, road construction
ventilation, refrigerators
whispering demons, no clicking cables

It’s quiet, it’s quiet
No trucks, no frogs, no chicken
It’s quiet, it’s quiet
No talk, not anything like it
No media, no ticking clocks
No snoring husband, squeaking doors
neither background radiation
Cosmic rays from outer space

It’s quiet, it’s quiet
No wind, no streaming water
It’s quiet, it’s quiet
No sizzling, trembling nostrils
Only this pre-modern silence
Rustling ears and Streaming blood
It’s never really, really silent
Inside my head I understood
Track Name: Insecurity Expert
All gone to sit
All look around
No one has questions

All been to school
All been to church
No one has questions

All fell in love
All lost someone
No one has questions

All without debts
All in the car
No one has questions

All want to help
All want to teach
No one gets questions

All wrote a book
All won a price
No one gets questions
