about

"Western Violence & Brief Sensuality" is the 2nd proffering from primal rocknroll outfit Eric Campbell & The Dirt. The album was recorded in the old house adjacent the Penthouse Nightclub, where the nightclub founders, the Filippones, lived in the 1940's. For two months The Dirt toiled in these quarters, recording every drop, resulting in 80 hours of music. The 8 songs on the album feature the most focused moments of the sessions, though still retaining the thickness and limbo of the experience. The Dirt becomes the dusty sonic landscape of an old movie score to Eric Campbell's twisted and romantic personal ruminations.

Track Name: Lost In The Fire
Lost In The Fire

~~

As the morning goes to night, so the days turn to weeks
I recall them all in black and white, subtitles to speak
I was scared, I was never alone, with strangers in my house
Extermination on the phone, but the lines chewed on by the mouse
And cars pass by my window now, to see how I've retired
They ask where did his desire go, they all say it was lost in the fire

~~

They don't know what I know, I was never seen
Crouching behind that old barn with matches and gasoline
I ran all night till the morning light, with a fire in the fields
Now comes the colour from the black and white
And my voice becomes real.

~~
Track Name: The Rose Inn Motel
THE ROSE INN MOTEL

~~


This dark room gets brighter as we fade into tomorrow
I leave the motel to the sidewalk so narrow
Headin to a place to trade in your sorrows
And you know I ain't got a better plan in mind

The mornings a dull blade, the night cut so sharp
I swear my pulse tried to divorce my heart
and I was feeling wrecked in my womans shipyard
I thought maybe I'd try and ride the blind

I was an anxious star that burned a little great
Like showing up early when it's too late
The damage done and the hinge on the gate
Left open and swinging

Even in the heat my heart feels like snow
Killin my dreams to fall asleep on the road
every demon has his heaven you know
and mine ain't too far to go

Tomorrow and your memories, never cease to fight
You can follow constellations of busted street lights
they take you to a room where you shouldn't be tonight
at the old Rose Inn Motel.

But tonight I wanna see you, pick up the phone and be there
On the same avenues somethings gone bare
Your pony laugh and your time shifting stare,
All the things you kept so well

At The Rose Inn Motel.
Track Name: Miss U So Much
MISS U SO MUCH

~~

Its been a long time comin' but now we're here
A long time comin' for wreckage to clear
And i missed u so much

I thought I lost my grip I thought I lost the plot
When I slit my wrists I guess I lost my touch
And i missed u so much

That wasn't the blues that was mundane
I swear to the gods it will never be that way again
i missed u too much

So stand in the line, or fuck in the cue
Do whatever you wanna do tonite
Its gonna be alright

It's been a long time comin' but now we're here
Now the coast is anything but clear
And i can feel such

So stand back like you paid us or dance like you're broke
u never know what the night may invoke
but don't worry, this won't hurt too much

Stand back like you paid us or dance like you're broke
The tears in your eyes keep letting you know
This is the strangest night you've ever had

and i missed u so much
and i missed u so much
and i come to take you home
and i come to take you down.
Track Name: Blue Always
BLUE ALWAYS

~~

I'm blue but I won"t be blue always
The suns gonna shine in my back door someday
She's gone but not to stay
And I'm blue but I won't be blue always

The autumn air floats like a ship at sea
The wind shakes the nooses in the poplar trees
In days long gone they raped this land of it's mystery
I am the stain of its history

On and on I go like a rider through the trees
Trying to ditch this road though I know, someday
I'll rise up singing

I never catch this feeling til' it comes
Before they operate I'm already numb
I count from ten all the way back to one
And I'm taken on back to where this all begun

On and on I go like a rider through the trees
Trying to ditch this road though I know, someday
They'll rise up singing.
Track Name: Gun Child
GUN CHILD
~~

Your house is set with all your own traps
Vampiric swastikas swaddle you in their lap
Swastikas and cowboys exposure of the sun

When did you become so allergic to love
Crawlin in your skin seems to fit you like a glove
Your lovers leaning over reaching for your Gun

We spend our money on those ails and ills
They make the sickness once they've made the pill
Not your mother or your doctor will tell you whats for real

Keep away, keep away from the Gun Child
Keep away, keep away from the Gun Child
Keep away, keep away, Keep away

Your ghost lives on just to reload the gun
Oh why do you wait for the bullets to come
Your ghost lives on just to reload the Gun
Don't just stand there, Child you should run

Burn all the witches and stake their predictions,
Kick all them bitches and their doggley inflictions
I wanna strip u right down to your soul

I think you'll find once I laid you bare
I really love you and I really care
I'm just sick of your guru fillin my hole

Keep away, keep away from the Gun Child
Keep away, keep away from the Gun Child
Keep away, keep away, Keep away

Your ghost lives on just to reload the gun
Oh why do you wait for the bullets to come
Your ghost lives on just to reload the Gun
Don't just stand there, Child you should run
Track Name: For All The Wrong Reasons
FOR ALL THE WRONG REASONS
~~

For all the wrong reasons I see your face every day
Can't stand another season even if it pays
It just sounds like treason any time you say
You're livin on your love, you're livin on your love

I know baby its gettin late, I know you're gonna try and make me wait
But i wont live, live on your hate

I gave you more gave you more
than i should
gave you more gave you more
than i thought i could
gave you blood gave you wine
gave you rope and twine
if you should hang yourself in the dead of the night

For all the wrong reasons you wanna make this stick
then you'd better start believing that the martyrs are actually sick
you worry about pleasin but conceivin to shorten our breath
oh how do you smile my love while the chosen ones slip off
Into death, into death

I know baby its gettin late, I know youre gonna try and make me wait
But i wont live, live on your hate

I gave you more gave you more
than i should
gave you more gave you more
than i thought i could
gave you blood gave you wine
gave you rope and twine
if you should hang yourself in the dead of the night

I'll tell the world of you, about the girl in you
my love unfurled in you, I used to think the world of you
For all the wrong reasons,
For all the wrong reasons,
For all the wrong reasons,
For all the wrong reasons.
Track Name: Devil's Advocate
DEVIL'S ADVOCATE

~~

Got too far out to show you a sign
Was playing the devil's advocate in my mind
You were my favourite song I sung you so well
We talked about heaven but we fell down to hell

It burns, burns, burns,
and I turn, turn, turn
I've had to learn not to yearn just to move
Anytime there's nothing left to prove

Wasn't no angel, couldn't get no peace of mind
I knew it was wrong once I saw the swinging sign
I tossed the whurly another hard earned dime
Just to hear the devil's advocate one last time,

The record turns, turns, turns
Heaven burns, burns, burns
Oh my skin was like silk and my heart began to wilt
And the devil held my baby so still

Oh baby did you get your fill?
On your own Calvary Hill?
Did you let the blood just spill?
You we're my devil's advocate
Oh baby I hope you will
Come up! Before your breath goes still
Track Name: Tragedy
TRAGEDY

~~

Less and less, a call distressed
Hidden alone and blue
The tap on my guts spits out blood rust
And all i wanna do is, kill you
In a strange forest black and bent
Where two dead lovers and the orchids went
A passion pyre of funeral fire
Your voice like the whispering wind

So why when you go
Does the daylight not show
An avalanche in the snow
And the sky is split open
And the sea wants our soul
Like a Tragedy befallin

But I can't pretend that I don't dig
The space some pain brings
though I might be dead the next time
Your hotel telephone rings
it's dangerous for me its been so long
Since I've just floated
We're always looking for love
But sometimes there's just no way to hold back the river

So why when you go
Does the daylight not show
An avalanche in the snow
And the sky is split open
And the sea wants our souls
Like a Tragedy befallin

I will fall into you, fall into you, fall in to you like a tragedy
I am callin for you, crawlin for you, callin to you like a tragedy
I will slip your view, slide into view, and spill unto you like a tragedy
I have fallen for you, fallen for you, fallen for you like a tragedy

I will crucify this religion of love!
Like a Tragedy, I'm befallin I'm befallin,
Cuz I ain't even a Tragedy to you.
