about

A ludicrously OTT, mid-1980s style synth-pop leviathan about - well, I don't think I need to explain this, do I?!

Featuring judicious use of the Korg Monotron. Best £37.99 I ever spent ; )

lyrics

Shot down by double barrelled disappointment
I stand forlorn and gaze at you
Utterly unable to fathom this effect you’ve had on me
I just can’t vanquish this anguish!

In this shallow world self worth obscenely
Depends on our physiology
Well – if you hate your body so much – why not let me love it?
O let’s be awful together..

Come on – lose your inhibitions
Oh - lose your inhibitions
To the human condition
The Human Condition..

I know such sentiments may seem callow
(Well, we’ve all got our inner teenager)
Please stop saving yourself for some superficial superman
And try an exercise in compromise!

For if no one desired you – I still would
O – you’ve such heavenly ‘features’..
But there’s a pandemic frustration sweeping across the nation
Of less desirable creatures – please listen to me now and

Come on – lose your inhibitions
Oh - lose your inhibitions
To the human condition
The Human Condition..

And when he’s done – and your clothes go back on
You just know he’ll lose interest
But what would it take just to drag you down to me?
You name it – I’m paying..

Come on – lose your inhibitions
Oh - lose your inhibitions
To the human condition
The Human Condition..

We're only human!
Human
We're only human
Human

It's The Human Condition..

about

A Short Dark Stranger Leeds, UK

A Leeds based purveyor of pumping power pop!

80s / 90s style throbbing, crashingly catchy (and literally exploding) synth-pop epics cross fertilised with cathartic, heartfelt, emotionally honest yet wittily pithy, observant and self deprecatingly amusing lyrics.

The resulting hybrid is an entirely new musical species - and (dare I say it?) an act of "musical selection"!
