Willie Murphy & the Angel-Headed Hipsters

Willie Murphy & The Angel Headed Hipsters - Dirtball CD cover


Every Man For Himself And God Against Us All

There are no “love songs”
On this album
Only songs of love and sorrow
And hope

One small planet
Two worlds
An intricate world of life
Old – Alive
A new brash, bludgeoning world
Of greed and destruction
Against life
One small planet — Dying
