GNOD + ERRANT MONK & KHOM at the Pavilion stage, Manchester International Festival.


Tom Bloxham.. greedy piggy
Richard Leese- greedy piggy
Pat Carny – Greedy piggy
78 million spent on Manchester international festival
59 cut from social care

The uppers are upon us
naturally you knew this but were not prepared to look up
Slanted fucks
resting elbows in boiled egg scalps
just to let you know they’re floating plumply above us
They have come to remove you from your zone
come to snap the spine right out of your plight
and poke your jellied remains into the sodden soil they now own
What they’d do for their heritage
hairy tidges prodding hymens into silver alleyways
relining streets with plaques engraved
for the fat cats and bad bankers
playing piano in the rewound jazz lab lounges of hell
Collapse heralded by massacres
and on screen demonstrations of re-enactments of plays
written by bastards for bastards about the beautiful and the brave

The last the least the lost the leftover the lied to
The left behind, the lambasted, the leprous
Those lying in doorways
Unable to look forward to this
Those who keep calm and carry on
Because ignorance is bliss
Those who didn’t lose out when the bankers took the cash
Those in urban renewal, avert your urban splash
The council funded MIF
But left our social care bereft
We stand firmly to the left
And actively abhor you
And here they spend their millions
The audacity
2.5 million from the city council
For Manchester international film festival
2.5 million from the city council
For the Manchester international film festival
Get to fuck
I don’t see anyone laughing
I don’t see anyone caring
Urban splash
You are flooding the canal with bodies
Slanted fucks
I don’t see the dukes and bad bankers sharing
78 million for another factory
Producing nothing but the timid art of ignorant lapdogs
No imagination
We’re running out of patience
Another factory?
No imagination
We’re running out of patience
Imagine this.. council cancel festival to provide housing
Maybe atos will get a stage next year

The last the least the lost the leftover the lied to
Those lying in doorways
And you spent millions on this?
What a way to make them pay
Festishise the poor
Soup kitchen, common
Fetishise the poor
The launderette, the garage
Are you having a fucking laugh?
I don’t see anyone laughing
Are you laughing?
Do you cry?
Have fun have fun are you having fun?
Well I’m glad I’m not the only one
