Easy Street EP
This is an extract taken from The Imaginary Times, 1 April 2006 Nobody knew where the strangers came from. In fact, nobody had even paid any attention to them before. That is, until they spoke: -Look at all of you', they said in unison, 'you look like it's 6 o'clock on Monday morning, the alarm has finally penetrated your defences, and it's insisting you face another weary day.' Another day of blood sweat and tears, looking forward to ending the drudgery, constantly wishing that time would rush right by, returning you to the welcoming embrace of home. The familiar treadmill reels you in. -Will this never end?' you cry. -For God's sake give me a break', you plead. But no one hears you. No one, that is, until now! Rushing through the air at the speed of sound come No Shame, the new superheroes of the modern world! They bring you Easy Street. 'Easy Street', where you can do whatever your heart desires. 'Easy Street', where you can eat what you like, when you like and how you like, yet never have to worry about your figure. 'Easy Street', where you can spend, spend, spend but never expect to receive anything as vulgar as the check. 'Easy Street', where whatever you want you can have, whatever you can think of you can do and whatever you want you can have. Yes, dear people, just by playing this song, you will can look forward to the riches of Eldorado. All your worries will be a thing of the past. You will be able to dine out on Ambrosia creamed rice for ever. Without warning the moment was gone. Where? How? All that remained was a warm memory. 'Easy Street'. It didn't make me richer. But it got me singing on the way to work! Only those who fully understood irony laughed.
