Killer Killer by Dark Company. Album: Signmaker Download: https://wudrecords.bandcamp.com/track/killer Lyrics by P. Greatorex. Music by G. Davies/P. Greatorex/R. Parsons. Recorded, mixed and produced by George Davies at Silent Running Studios Exeter, Autumn 1991. Remastered at Wud Records Studios 2010. Copyright © 2010 Wud Records. Copyright ℗ 1991 D & G Music/Explicit Music. Performers: Peter Greatorex – vocals George Davies – guitars, bass, Boss DR220A drum machine Rowena Parsons – tenor sax KILLER Learning is a clock with only one hand Dreaming is a beach with speaking sands Knowledge is a vice that grips a man And Cain was a killer that didn’t understand Wisdom is a yo-yo with a broken string Time is a bird that cannot sing And you can’t stop the rain with anything Except love Wanting is a boat that doesn’t know the sea Needing is a pain that hurts to be free Waiting is a lock that doesn’t have no key And Cain was a killer that could have been me Wisdom is a yo-yo with a broken string Time is a bird that cannot sing And you can’t stop the rain with anything Except love War is a sore that won’t go away Night is a bruise on the skin of day Children are the reason that you say you’ll stay And Cain was a killer who got clean away Wisdom is a yo-yo with a broken string Time is a bird that cannot sing And you can’t stop the rain with anything Except love Teachers are people who shoot at sparks Lessons are knives that shine in the dark Sins are boats on the lake in the park And Cain was a killer right there at the start Wisdom is a yo-yo with a broken string Time is a bird that cannot sing And you can’t stop the rain with anything Except love Fun Facts: This song is in the key of Am. During the recording of the sax part, Row played a fabulous blort which caused much giggling and can be heard on the ‘out-takes and blorts’ page at Wud Records. Unfortunately much of the giggling cannot be heard. This was the very first Dark Company song that was completed. It received highly positive acclaim from the Guild of International Songwriters and Composers, before going on to become a well-loved Dark Company classic. Due to unfamiliarity with the gear, the DBX on the TSR8 was switched off for the recording, causing a most horrendous amount of hiss. This was later fixed with cunning use of gates and aural exciters. The song was written in August 1991 and is 110BPM. The guitars were recorded straight into the desk rather than using an amplifier.
