Statement from Weird Shapes:
Kenneth Kensington says that the length of public outrage is directly proportional to the amount of Daily Mail front page misery exclusives that litter the road like badly designed paving slabs. The cogs turn to the rhythm of Noughties America, stars with so much fuck appeal they look like parodies of wasps chewing batteries.
Contrary to popular belief music is a state of mind, a state of flux in which Bears can roam freely un-inhibited by the authorities, the French or the idea that red men can work equally in a sub zero climate-society. Apparently ducks fly backwards when being chased by ice cream vans playing a mutated hybrid of pattern guitars, soft synth and Stravinsky's rite of spring, this is also what makes horse's run with both legs at right angles. We are all tangled up but never caught.
All aboard the Weird Shapes train of thought.
