about

If there was anything James was proud of, it was that he was a Glaswegian. A good portion of our last conversation dealt with that subject, and I had witnessed his pride for the city of his birth several times before. He had recently signed on with the Facebook group 'Lost Glasgow', which posts photographs and stories from past decades, and retraced his steps about the town when he was a younger lad. He enthusiastically told me about all the places he had been to and which he now had found a treasure trove of imagery of. I couldn't leave his Weegie Pride off this album, so here's a song with a Scottish vibe, sung in the polished Weegie accent I always used around Blaast, and which he told me was rather good. Proof of that came on the day I met one of my idols, the singer Fish (of Dalkeith origin), who after a wee blether mistook me for the genuine article. So if I can fool a tried and true Scot, it's no aw that bad an accent, noo is it?

lyrics

I’m Glesga through and through
I’m no jist passin’ thru
I prophesy disaster
If ye no gie me ma due

Thi Molly raised me richt
So I’m no a simple tool

But I’ll be a fearsome baisturt if I cannae hear ma choons

Seen Belgium and Dundee
And Washington DC
I drank in many places
But ye cannae get the Weegie out o’ me

You made my life
Yir in ma blood
Yir in ma heart
This place I love

Thi green wis runnin’ thru ma veins

It’s nowt that I wid hide
For aw it’s plain tae see
I may noo be departed
But a Weegie I will always be!

Ye’ll never get the Weegie oot o’ me!

Prog, Goth, Rock, something music-y. Definitely dark. Dark is good. If you like dark music with the odd odd time signatures thrown in with the melancholy, this is your place to be.
