the first thing I can do when I wake up in the morning on any given day is say hello I am alive but I do not do this I stumble out of bed confused and upset that the world exists and so do I and that’s when I google Danish pastry lyrics that when I google I have no imagination that’s when I google do you love me any more and im sorry that I told I don’t feel safe with you because I do and im sorry that I told you that youre boring me are you wicked like me? are you wicked like me? And im sorry that I told you that youre boring cos youre not And im sorry that I told you that I think you suck And im sorry that I told you that I think youre boring cos youre not And that’s when I google Danish pastry lyrics That’s when I google Im so fuCKING boring That’s when I google Are you sick of me yet? Cos I am sick of me yeah Are you going through a crisis of identity And do you miss me? If your body is not well then your mind cannot be clear and if theres nothing in your head then theres nothing left to make You feel Then theres nothing left to make You feel Then theres nothing left to make You feel Then theres nothing left to make you feel Then theres nothing left to make you feel Then theres nothing left to make you feel I cant make you feel I cant make you feel I cant make you feel I cant make you feel

And he barks Like A dog And I smile endlessly And I’m crying so so hard You cant see me But you bark like a dog Bark like a dog Bark like a dog And you’re barking like a dog barking like a dog barking like a dog And the beauty seeps in in the cracks where the pain comes in And it numbs me And it holds me And it rocks me and it keeps me sane and it numbs my brain And it keeps me sane and it keeps me sane And im falling falling falling And I cant see clearly clearly clearly But I love you dearly dearly dearly And im falling gently gently gently in love With all the things that things that break me and they really hurt me hurt me hurt me but they keep me sane and warm Sane and warm Sane and warm But you bark like a dog bark like a dog bark like a dog And Im smiling smiling smiling And I think im crying crying crying And my head is broken broken broken And im falling deeper deeper deeper And im drowning in a sea of white noise And you smile endlessly And youre drowning in my sea of white noise Because for good or for bad Good or for bad We are tied to this place Tied to this place Tied tied tied tied tied tied tied And I try to be good try to be good for you and me and all the things I love and all the places places places but it numbs me numbs me numbs me... Because for good or for bad good or for bad We are tied to this place Tied to this place Tied tied tied..... And you bark like a dog bark like a dog bark like a dog and youre barking like a dog barking like a dog barking like a dog and youre barking like a dog barking like a dog barking like a dog barking like a dog and ive forgotten how to smile smile smile smile... and the pain’s coming in where the beauty does and the beautys coming in where the pain does and it numbs me and it hold me and it rocks me and it keeps me sane and it numbs my brain and it keeps me sane and it keeps me sane

daniel johnston's lyrics not mine: trying to remember but my feelings cant know for sure try to reach out but its gone gone lucky stars in your eyes I am walking The cow I really don’t know How I came here I really don’t know Why im staying here i am walking the cow Tried to point my finger But the wind keeps blowing me around In circles In circles Lucky stars In your eyes I am walking the cow I really don’t know Why I have to care I really don’t know What I have to fear i am walking the cow

You’ve been doing nothing for a while baby and I was hoping that youd take me for a ride in your new car You’ve been doing nothing for a while baby and I was hoping that youd teach me how to play guitar Doo doo dooo doo Don’t be a jerk No don’t be a jerk I was reading back a book I started late last year and This is a book in which I started to write all my dreams I was thinking that maybe we could start again But you know what it’s the darkest thing I’ve ever written Don’t be jerk No don’t be a jerk Don’t touch im afraid of what I might be feeling and Don’t touch me ever again If you do I will not try to pretend That I don’t like it anymore than I did then Don’t be a jerk No don’t be a JERK DON’T touch me im afraid of what I might be feeling and Don’t touch me im afraid of feelings rushing back in That’s the worst thing that could drive me out of my mind baby DON’T BE A JERK NO DON’T BE A JERK Don’t touch me im afraid of feelings rushing back in God knows you know how to make me feel like shit and God knows I know how to make myself feel sick and God knows how long it took me to get over it and Don’t be a JERK NO DON’T BE A JERK Doo doo doo doo You’ve been doing nothing for a while baby and I was hoping that youd take me for a ride in your new car You’ve been doing nothing for a while baby and I was hoping that youd teach me how to play guitar I was hoping that youd take me for a ride in your new car I was hoping that youd teach me how to maybe play guitar Your new car play guitar...

about

Struggles with life, love and boredom - spelt out with sticky fingers by five idiot savants.

Equal parts Neil Young, Cat Power and Blink 182, Porridge Radio's songs are 2 cups of emotion for every tablespoon of salt. The crisp, golden brown surface of Rice, Pasta and Other Fillers belies a childhood misspent consuming The Carpenters, Supertramp and Guns 'n' Roses, with a generous sprinkling of the Cranberries.

After a series of home recorded solo demos, a split EP with West America, a single on CHUD records, and a comp with No Dice records, and the growing legend of their live shows, RP&OF is the dragged out remnants of sessions done in the band's earliest stage (summer 2k15). Many of the songs are full band reworkings of Porridge Radio's earliest bedroom demos.

RP&OF's lyrics, title and artwork, as well as the group's name, brings to mind a certain scrapbook absurdism at the core of Porridge Radio's work. Faced with the dark abyss of existence, the band scrapes together some value from malarky, baloney and balderdash, and then cling to it, giggling, for dear life.

This isn't revivalism, stylised posturing, or calculated blog fodder. It's not really anything, other than some sad friends expressing some weird feelings in a way that they like and find fun. I like it a lot too. At the dawn of midnight they sacrifice the goat to satan, praying for the end of mankind and the dawn of a new satanic era.
