Infamous Toughies

Dawson – Infamous Toughies, Infinite Toffees

I’m not crouched in the corner
I’m not cowering in the corner
I wont apologise
Because I think you’re wrong

I’ve come so far
I’ve learnt so much
Surrounded by static
A huge hand on my back

I used to correspond with the lead singer of this band. His letters were quiet with an undercurrent of sadness. When I went to Glasgow and asked if we could meet, he declined. The grayness of Glasgow, the alcohol that poured freely from every which way, the dampness…I’d discovered the source of his moroseness.
Dawson is the only band to ever thank me in their album credits and this for artwork that was not even mine but that I had merely passed on.
