Friends of Mine – Adam Green 2003)

“Hay una panaderia en el cielo nocturno
Y me quiero morir porque el gobierno me mintió”

Barrett es Bacharach. Bacharach en ácido con la pajarita torcida. Lee Hazlewood después de una mala noche y de una bronca con Nancy Sinatra. Scott Walker que se peleó con los hermanos. Nick Drake y Tim Buckley con ganas de jugar a marineros después de escuchar unos viejos himnos de escuela. Fred Neil correteando por sex shops y salas X, buscando un médico por culpa de una gonorrea de aquí te espero. Amor con halitosis y pies de atleta. La pajarita torcida, Barrett que sonrie desde su estrella, Bacharach que tropieza con el último escalón enmoquetado y su dentadura que sale volando a la cara de su fan más entregada. Lee Hazlewood perdió su lazo tejano tras la última juerga, y Nancy y el viejo daddy Frankie llevan setenta y dos horas dándole la brasa con el asunto. Scott Walker que borró su último disco después de enfadarse por no conseguir acabar los crucigramas del periódico. Nick Drake y Tim Buckley que se hartaron de marinos, buscaban nuevas formas de entretenimientos y acabaron por meterse otro pico. Fred Neil, que pensaba en suicidarse y no lo conseguía. Se perdió por la ciudad buscando un sitio de esos de café decente y suaves compañías. Bacharach nunca trabó amistad con Barrett. Lee Hazlewood se divorció. Nancy y Frankie prefirieron las moquetas, los peluquines y las chaquetas de cuero. Scott Walker pensó en abrir una peluquería y al final acabó el disco. Nick y Tim se fueron. Fred, también. Townes Van Zandt vino a por su caballo y ni Dios le hizo ni caso. La ciudad quedó desierta. Y el sol no acababa de dar el pego. Aquello de salir y iluminar costaba demasiado. Cosas de la resaca.

I Wanna Die

I wanna choose to die,
and be buried with a rubik cube.
and sleep inside the big blue buildings,
while the sweet disease drives through.

there’s a bakery in the night sky.
i wanna die because the government lied.

she was a man with herpes,
floating in a yellow stream.
running through the windows backwards.
kissing all the buildings clean.

you know his appetite for hardcore taste.
and orgyastic party games.

she woke up in the highway,
with arrows pointing at her face.
later that day in gym class,
she ate a mouth full of anthrax,
go to sleep.

See Emily Play – De Barrett Floyd a Bowie (1967 – 1973)

L’Emili ho intentava però no entenia. De Barrett a Bowie, passant per Pink Floyd. El single que els havia de llençar a l’estrellat dels grups de pop. A la versió aprofitada d’un hiperactiu en mode noi per a tot.

see emly play

Emily tries but misunderstands, ah ooh
She often inclined to borrow somebody’s dreams till tomorrow
There is no other day
Let’s try it another way
You’ll lose your mind and play
Free games for may
See Emily play
Soon after dark Emily cries, ah ooh
Gazing through trees in sorrow hardly a sound till tomorrow
There is no other day
Let’s try it another way
You’ll lose your mind and play
Free games for may
See Emily play
Put on a gown that touches the ground, ah ooh
Float on a river forever and ever, Emily
There is no other day
Let’s try it another way
You’ll lose your mind and play
Free games for may
See Emily play

Love Song – Syd Barrett (1970)

Una de les millors cançons de Syd Barrett.
No em preguntin la raó
Ni el perquè
La cosa és així
Així funcionava, suposo, amb Syd Barrett.

I knew a girl and I like her still
she said she knew she would trust me
and I her will…
I said: OK baby, tell me what you’ll be
and I’ll lay my head down and see what I see.
By the time she was back
by her open eyes
I knew that I was in for a big surprise.
