natal noise

Musicians weigh in on the subject of birthdays:

David Lowery’s cynical and a bit drunk; Björk is off in the stratosphere singing about God knows what; and Kurt Heasley, such a downer, is so bitter he’s even denying that it is his birthday.

But it is mine.

(It’s also Mike Watt’s and Billy Bragg’s. Apparently, taking my first name into account, it’s a day for people with double consonants at the ends of their names.)

Cracker “Happy Birthday to Me” (Cracker, 1992)
The Sugarcubes “Birthday” (Life’s Too Good, 1988)
Lilys “Your Guest and Host”
(Eccsame the Photon Band, 1995)
