Watch the brilliant video for “Hot Dreams” from Timber Timbre. Read my thoughts here

Beat the Drum Slowly
  • Beat the Drum Slowly
  • Timber Timbre
  • Hot Dreams
Play

Deco tower, rainbow fountain showers
Crystal columns, silver tabloid entry
The celebrity cemetery

A faded trail of a golden age
That flickered out into celluloid ashes
Phantasms fantastic.

Outran the avalanche
To the cameras rolling

We beat the drum slowly

The family jewels, the swimming pool
Yards marked by emerald coffins
We heard crimes often and softly
A mystery mist, new systems shift
Things recognized from television channels
Nostalgia signals, unscrambled.

Outran the avalanche 
To the cameras rolling

We beat the drum slowly
