The Songs

A few PO! songs are on YouTube – here they are

Northern Wonder

(7″ single – released 1994)

Give your life to poetry, religion or music. They will suck you in and spit you out. Written following a visit to Sylvia Plath’s grave in Heptonstall, North Yorkshire.

Danny’s Girl

WRC(from the LP Little Stones – released 1989)

The White Ribbon Campaign (WRC) is a global movement of men and boys working to end male violence against women and girls. It was formed by a group of pro-feminist men in London, Ontario in November 1991 as a response to the École Polytechnique massacre of female students by Marc Lépine in 1989.

Your Shout

(from the album Horse Blanket Weather – released 1998)

Horrific silences and malevolent cursing. Your little dog trembles at the sound.

I Took My Head On A Date

(from the album Horse Blanket Weather – released 1998)

It isn’t easy to seduce your own head. But it’s a cheap night out.
