Vielly got her miracle
And Church is looking suave beside his flowers.
The buffet doesn't close for hours. I rode here in the front seat with the window down.
And I can't hear a single thing that anyone says
'Coz it's all in my face and it's all too beautiful. Chorus:Oh sweet water sometimes it feels like ancient RomeStaring at the cats behind the ironwork and looking for a dine
Oh sweet water I can't believe we're home.
There are problems in this world I know
But right now none of them are mine. And Hoagy Carmichael never came here, Dave.
Havana cigars on the back seat and I wouldn't have it any other way. Chorus At long last person or persons unknown
We don't have to be alone it doesn't have to be a circus. Chorus

Waiting For The Love Bus
There's a clean, simple sound to a lot of this that Condition Blue detractors might appreciate. I'm ten years older now than when I made Bath, and right now, after all that morbid stuff, it only really feels like about three. There's rockin' shit and there's a big ballad or two and some weird little pop songs and a nice family sing-along about penguins. I hope you like it.
¡Excellent! The Violent Years
Millions of years ago, dinosaurs ruled the Earth. Today the Galileo Space Probe orbits mighty planet Jupiter. The Jazz Butcher Conspiracy first appeared in June 1982 in the back room of the Black Lion in Northampton. They finally drank the bar dry in a small town in in Mallorca on the 20th August 1996

The Butcher Says..
Inspired by and dedicated - in part - to the Sweetwater Springs Saloon in Los Osos, California, a splendid rockin' redneck shed, which we heartily recommend to all pompous English whiteboy groups trying to "crack the market Stateside". If you're going to play Nick Cave, sooner or later you're going to hurt yourself; far better to stand in a giant refrigerator with six bottles of Jaegermeister and your crew.

I live in the area where the "Sweetwater" bar is located. Pat wrote this song about a night out at this particular watering hole which neither of us knew was a gay bar until 3 drinks into the evening...
it's on Broadway in Long Beach.

I've never been to the bar for which this song
is named, but I intend to one of these days.
I love the song's laid-back, cheerful mood
which stands in contrast to the rather somber
songs on the Waiting for the Love Bus LP.
The song also has a terrific arrangement with
a tinkly keyboard line which reminds me of
Brian Wilson and sunny California in general.
The song ends with synthesized heavenly
chorus that sounds a bit like that lovely hymn
on Brian Eno's Apollo Atmospheres CD.
I'd like to think that this was Pat's intention
when he put this one together.
