Lyrics
The one with the wobble board teaching kids how to draw and then the leader of the gang who got locked up in Vietnam. The one who would always shout during it's a knockout.
They're right-to-be-forgotten: order the cream of society. We'll make it clear - we never really knew Sir Jimmy. You can't trust anyone. That seems to be the message that's passed along. Let's edit it all out.
They must have known about the dead one (never met him).
You know, the one with the tracksuit (got no memory).
Chomping on cigars- "now then, now then" (who's that, then?).
Loads of jewellery, funny look in his eyes.
That P.R guy into sex and lies who represented that other star. The one who ate the hamster. That gurning music mogul who wore huge bifocals.

Great lyrics!
One for us Brits methinks.

How did those people get away with it for so long? Oh wait. Yes. The police, politicians and the judiciary might have been involved too. Maybe they needed scapegoats. Dead people and has-beens? Perfect for smoke-screening stuff the public wouldn't like.

Good song, I approve absolutely.

It's always good to get back to music making. The drum and bass certainly keep this one rolling. Good to have you back.

Really cool tune, especially like the break into the bebop vibe. Bizarre in a cool way. Original at it's best, thanks for sharing.

Timely and succinct
Brilliant lyrics and as Dave said, one for us Brits (though this is probably endemic across the world) .

Universal
The scandals may be local .. but the same crap and cover-ups occur all over the world. So even if your references are fitted to a specific time and place .. your song has a thematic universality that is relatable.

For someone that hasn't been recording lately .. you have sat down and tossed off a wonderful song. The music, the lyrics, the singing, the performance are delightful. Good stuff!
