Plays and Sings for Money
“Pop songs. The first duty of a singer is to sing, Swinburne once wrote.
Some of the lyrics in these songs are taken from his poems and ballads.
What has been added should be seen as a commentary. But with a beat.
I am perfectly sure that he would have enjoyed the beating of the beats.
As for the rest, it is not exactly Faustine — but it still makes you sea-
sick. I hope that Swinburne would have been amused by this proletarian
echo of his voice.” — Michael Anacker, July 2017
