“James, that`s a bad situation. I`m not saying it`s not repairable, but it`s pretty far. When you go from being in one of the best bands in the world to some cover band… as far as I`m concerned, he was playing down at the pub.” – Billy Corgan

“My advice is that if you’re in a band and you feel is good, stick with it and work at it, because basically what we’ve done is kept a school band together for years with nothing happening–until recently.” – Phil Selway

Is it overwhelming
To use a crane to crush a fly?
It’s a good time for Superman
To lift the sun into the sky

“Whod like to change the world, who wants to shoot the curl
Who gets to work for bread, who wants to get ahead
Who hands out equal rights, who starts and ends that fight
And not not rant and rave, or end up a slave
Who can make hard won gains, fall like the summer rain
Now every man must be, what his life can be

So dont call, me, the tune, I will walk away” – Peter Garrett

“Round and round, up and down
Through the streets of your town
Everyday I make my way
Through the streets of your town
Don’t the sun look good today?
But the rain is on its way
Watch the butcher shine his knives
And this town is full of battered wives.” – Grant McLennan

“Before too long
The one that you’re loving
Will wish that he’d never met you
Before too long
He who is nothing
Will suddenly come into view
So let the time keep rolling on
It’s on my side” – Paul Kelly

“I could compare my music to white light which contains all colours. Only a prism can divide the colours and make them appear; this prism could be the spirit of the listener.” – Arvo Part

“There’s a black tinted sunset with the prettiest of skies
Lay back,lay back, rest your head on my thighs
There is some awful action that just breathes from my hand
Just breaths from a deed so exquisetly grand

And you are always on my mind x4” – Will Oldham 2004

“Life is bigger
It’s bigger than you
And you are not me
The lengths that I will go to
The distance in your eyes
Oh no I’ve said too much
I set it up” – REM 1992
