about

THE NEWCOMER WAS PROMISED A RETIREMENT PLAN. CLOSING OUT IBIZA FROM NOW UNTIL ETERNITY. ALL HE HAD TO DO WAS CARRY ON. MAKE THE PEOPLE HAPPY. LET THE DRUGS SEEP THEIR WAY FROM HIS LEATHERY SKIN. ONE ARM HELD HALFWAY TO HEAVEN AND THE OTHER TO HIS GOLDEN EAR. BUT WHEN HE LEFT THAT STAGE THE MUSIC FOLLOWED HIM INTO THE LONELY HOURS. SONIC APPARITIONS CHASED HIM THROUGH EASYJET SLUMBER. HAUNTED BY TALES OF SADNESS IN PARTY UTOPIA. HE BEGAN TO REPRODUCE THE SOUNDS OF HIS SAUNA INDUCED FEVER DREAMS. RECORDING HIS SAMPLES FROM POOR CHATURBATE CONNECTIONS IN THE HOTEL LOBBY. MORE AND MORE MATERIAL OOZED FROM HIM LIKE THE WARM BEADS OF SUNBED SWEAT THAT DRENCHED HIS BROW. THESE SONGS BECAME HIS BEST FRIENDS. YOU'VE COME A LONG WAY BABY, HE COULD FEEL IT, HALFWAY BETWEEN THE GUTTER AND THE STARS.
