”I didn’t make a record. It would have been too difficult. It was easier not to make a record.” Shrigley writes on the LP-sleeve, that contains a book of song lyrics, shaped in the form of a record. He connects the three spheres of his work—art, books and music—with the utmost ease. The lyrics show a thriving will to understand, are simple, ambiguous poetry, bribing, self-ironic and honest.
