Postby Craig High » Thu Mar 01, 2012 6:04 pm

This first post is by way of an introduction. My name is Craig High and yes that is the name I was born with. I am an Anarcho-Socialist who believes that we are in desperate need of a second industrial revolution in order to transfer to environmentally safe methods of propulsion & production. I am an internationalist & a situationist. I am utterly opposed to international warfare & believe no country has the right to occupy another. I believe in every human being's right to migrate around the planet without restriction. I am opposed to factory farming & am a great believer in reforestation.

Now for some verse.

A dragon chewed us up in its mouth
& spat us out of a club.
All we could do was sit in the car
& pass round the ready rub.
A girl had walked outside of her body.
The walls were out of sight.
My head was raised to an upper hell.
It burned extremely bright.

Psylocibin & Salvia.
You can be sure they'll rock you.
Psylocibin & Salvia.
Turn inside out what you do.

My feet turned to liquid
as I looked through the gates of death.
Therein I walked around in heaven
within a single breath.
An orange fragmentation
repeated like a spine.
It coiled & arced & then uncoiled
with a yellow fiery shine.

Psylocibin & Salvia.
You can be sure they'll rock you.
Psylocibin & Salvia.
Turn inside out what you do.

As I looked through the gates of death
it became quite clear.
Disconnection from my body.
The world became unclear.
I felt as though I had been plugged
into the overmind.
I felt responsible & irresponsible
all at the same time.

Psylocibin & Salvia.
You can be sure they'll rock you.
Psylocibin & Salvia.
Turn inside out what you do.

A BUNCH OF THIEVING SQUADDIES SACK
THE OLDEST CITY IN IRAQ.
U.S. TRUCKS LOAD UP THE OIL.
BLACK GOLD'S NOW THE WAR-TIME SPOIL.
U.K. U.S. TORTURE GANGS
HOG-TIE LOCALS BY THE HANDS.
CRIMES WE'RE NOT ALLOWED TO SEE
SUPPOSEDLY DEMOCRACY.
WOMEN STRAP THEIR BOMBS ON TIGHT.
PULL A RIP-CORD & IGNITE.
AVENGE THEIR KIDS WHO DIED OF FRIGHT.
DIED OF SHRAPNELL, BOMBS & SHITE.
CORPORATIONS STRIP THE WEALTH.
ENDANGERING A NATION'S HEALTH.
BRITISH TOMMY G.I. JOE
THEY'RE THE FREEDOM LOVER'S FOE!

Set the scene. We are obscene.
We don't like the sensors idea of clean.
We step out without a doubt
about the necessity to scream & shout.

Our love is strong it can't be wrong
to bring on the govern-mental swan song.
Chase 'em hard it's your back yard.
Liberate & generate the food for the starved.

The only way that this is done
is to make sure we've got the free market on the run.
One day I'm sure they'll be no war
& we can all be equal & get down on the floor.

Don't worship your new god & your new god is money.
You worship your new god & your new god is money.
Don't worship your new god & your new god is money.
You worship your new god & your new god is money.

ALL THE DEMONS & THE FIRES OF HELL
COULDN'T PENETRATE A BUREAUCRAT'S SHELL
WHEN THEY'VE GOT THAT SELF-HATRED SMELL
& THEY'RE SUFFERING A DULL-BRAIN SPELL.

SATAN'S HOARDS COULD NEVER HAVE DARNED
A SET OF CRACKS IN THE CHAIN OF COMMAND
IN A SYSTEM THAT IS NEVER ALARMED
BY THE LIST OF PEOPLE IT HARMED.

IT TAKES A DEVIL OF ITS OWN DEGREE
TO DENY THE RIGHT TO BE FREE.
ENSLAVING A GLOBE'S ECONOMY
FOR THE SAKE OF ANOTHER CUP OF TEA.

THIS DEVIL STOOD ON CAPITAL HILL.
FED OFF OF OIL IN ITS SATANIC MILL.
CLAIMED TO BE THE REALITY PILL
IN ITS DESIRE TO KILL & KILL.

SATAN REARED HIS HEAD & KISSED GEORGE BUSH.
SAID TO GEORGE “GIVE THE BUTTON A PUSH”.
GEORGE WAS CAUGHT IN A GENOCIDE RUSH.
POLITICIANS CAUGHT IN A BAY OF PIGS BLUSH.

INSANE HUSSEIN WHO'S TO TELL.
ANOTHER STOOGE THE C.I.A. FORGED IN HELL.
KEEPING UP THE COLD WAR ECONOMY.
PERPETUATING ARMS DEALS INDEFINATELY.

Short printed skirt & all-purpose boots.
She don't wanna flirt & understands her roots.
Make a sexist comment & she'll kick you in the nuts.
Liberté the only way with no ifs & buts.

She's a teenage drug dealing woman

She decides her partners no matter what their sex
She's into multi-media & radical FX
Revolutionary with bosses who she'll vex
If she's a witch I'd willingly be put under a hex

She's a teenage drug dealing woman.

Short printed skirt & pierced body parts.
Dances with a vigour as soon as music starts.
Takes on capital & exploitation.
Interprets the city with a riot education.

Standing in the precinct.
Coloured stone so distinct.
Perception is so succinct.
I got a twisted instinct.
A police van pulls up near.
A siren I did not hear.
“Where you been boy now tell me where?”
All I do is stand and stare.

Do they know what we are after?
Do we know what they are after?
Do we know what we are after?
Do they know what they are after?

Albert Hoffman cycles by.
I see the owners staring eye.
He cycles on & I turn my head
The law it follows him instead.
He cycles on a rides away.
Lives to ride another day.
I shouts aloud in liberty.
And swim away in the asphalt sea.

Do they know what we are after?
Do we know what they are after?
Do we know what we are after?
Do they know what they are after?

Within the bands I have performed in I have first & foremost been a singer & lyricist. For the last fifteen years {of the twenty eight that I have been playing live} I have also played clarinet, tin whistle, tenor recorder, percussion of various kinds {particularly African djembi drums}, keyboards, guitar, thumb piano, bass guitar, overtone flute, harmonica & kazoo. Only a few weeks ago I was given a sax which, as a clarinetist, I've found surprisingly easy to pick up.
I have been in numerous bands. In chronological order some of them include The Hornets, State 53, Psycho's Mum, The Weird Happenings Organisation, Dangerous Bend Mirrors, Fuzznation, Whip The Minister, Revoltage, Sunsnake, The Missing Puddings, Lord Snooty, Lord Snooty Deceased, Underdog, Pnevma and Not The Only Clown In The Village.
I have been in countless pick-up bands some of which include The Wicked Faeries of Chaos, The Queen Mum's Balsa Wood Teeth Experience, Goatbeard The Dry Leper, Kill Debt, The Kreative Action Network, Delegate Zero, Dorsal Root Ganglion & The Roadkill Toadskin Revue. I have guested in untold bands such as Headjam, The Bikinis, The Feckin' Ejits, The Hoochie Coochie Band, Impossible Stress Factor, Triptych, & Running On Empty. I have played with plenty of boundary breaking musicians some of which include Nik Turner, Nick {The Bevis Frond} Saloman, Mick Crossley from The Flyte Reaction, Chris Bowsher out of RDF, Dave Skull from The Dispossessed, Billy Jenkins from The Voice of God Collective, Joe Bazouki from The Ukelele Orchestra of Great Britain, Gypsy Phil Barrett, Jason from Johnny Action Finger & The Monty Pirates, Alice & Dave from The Monty Pirates, Cosmic Andy from The Space Pirates, Colin & Molara Powerstepper of Zion Train, Jason Terrestrial, Paco Terrestrial of Conflict fame, Mike Barry from Easter & The Totem, Bari Watts from The Outskirts of Infinity, Fran Terrestrial, Phil P.A.I.N. & Maggie Nicols.
At present, apart from High Cigar, I am playing music with The Druid's Revenge Collective {a jamming beatnik orchestra with a fluctuating line-up from week to week}, The Strange Agency {an Anarcho Prog band with a fixed line-up} and, very recently, myself and Nik Turner of Hawkwind fame have started a post modern Jazz combo recording from week to week under the title "The Intemperence Sessions".
I also have an ongoing solo project under the name High Cigar that I have been running since 2002. Having been in bands since 1984 I thought it was time to fashion some home-spun DJ based material covering themes & experimental styles that seem relevant to the 21st century. High Cigar is an attempt to avoid the present obsession with 20th century nostalgia. In a world where most music is wholly derivative of previous forms I believe it is essential that some of us split from tradition. I thought revivalism was rife in the early 1980's when I used to go to a Mod Club on one night of the week, a Rock & Roll gig on another, a Heavy Metal club on another & a Punk gig to finish the cycle off at the end. The dabbling in earlier genres was an obsession back then but was as nothing compared to the largely repetitive music scene as it exists today.
I have written copious amounts of autobiographical, semi-autobiographical & Fictional literature. Along with other writers and artists I have also published a compilation of stories involving the transgenderational assassin Jerry Cornelius who is the creation of the godfather of multiverse fiction Mr Michael Moorcock. Michael has provided us with an introduction and this project is now complete thanks to his encouragement and support. For all of the stories in hard copy do a search for "The Fluxus Paradigm" on http://www.lulu.com
For a thorough assessment of my back catalogue of music and literature go to http://www.highpanch.org.uk
I have also been responsible for producing a wide range of vids which represent many of the musical projects I have been involved with. They can be viewed on http://www.youtube.com/HighCigar as can a banned life-swap that my wife and myself were involved with. When freedom is outlawed only outlaws are free! Cxxxx
