about

A spontaneous jam, recorded in a Cole Valley garage in 2005, with words pulled at random from the letters column of The London Review Of Books. Some of these writers' opinions do not reflect those of The Granite Countertops. Beats, virtual orchestration, and new lyrics by J Neo Marvin were added in 2017 at Ear Candle Productions.

lyrics

...yes. No. Yes. No.

What is the source of all this news?
How much more trust will be abused?
Another site, a new belief
A lot of noise with no relief

They make it up to make us dumb
Or bury our heads and trust no one
It's all designed to keep us resigned.

Oh. Uh-oh. Show. Oh, blow...
...took to the streets! They knew that it was wrong. That makes me proud...

"Formula for a brand new insult
Wouldn't that be nice
It's a tough call, but it's common to choosing
Between the likes and unlikes
Put me in a gymslip and I'll scream at the sight of Virginia Wade."

"I read Stefan Collini's piece
On the higher education white paper
Just as it becomes clear
That although Labour rebels
Are in may cases unwaveringly against them
And although most students oppose them
Top fees, top-up fees, top fees
Top-up fees may well become law
In part because our universities support them."

"The lack of any concrete action on any of them
Is less encouraging..."

"Over the last year, comment on the Iraq War
In the liberal intelligentsia's house journals
Has been so unreflective and spiteful
That the aside in Alan Bennett's recent diary
Provoked no more than a resigned shrug."

Stay awake
There's a lot to see.
