The Books – Motherless Bastard (2002)

A few folk seem to regard the opening to this track as rather “cute” and “amusing”.

However, by 23 seconds in, the tone takes a decisive turn for the worse … Not quite on the scale of Lou Reed’s “The Kids” from Berlin where the kids being recorded have allegedly just been told that their mother has been killed ….

Nonetheless, uncomfortable sounding. The instrumental itself is sublime ….. taken from The Books “Thought For Food” LP of 2002.
