I dream of occasional fanzine mentions
I've been to one too many David Lynch Conventions
I play Postal Chess with a man who doesn't know me
And I've got a better frown than Tony Iommi

I've got a 4AD3DCD,
a 4AD3DCD,
a 4AD3DCD,
And I'm on a foundation course

Formed a band had loads of good songs like
"Love Froth Tuesday", "Pancake Candy Shoes"
Got a new Guitarist, but he's got a sad barnet
"Kiss Cream Carnival", "Lime Sky Spooky Pills"

It's me 4AD3DCD,
me 4AD3DCD,
me 4AD3DCD,
And I'm on a foundation course

Playing eerie madrigals
On the Campus Egg Slicer
I'm a Pop Sensation
I'm an all-round icon

Thank God Carnival
Laugh Crash Sunday School
Kiss Cream Carnival
Lime Sky Spooky Pills
The Flotsam
The Jetsom
The Cherubim and Seraphim

On me Foundation Course
Of course
You're the Man, Ray

It's me 4AD3DCD,
me 4AD3DCD
David Dundass, got no rock cakes?
It don't worry me none, bro

    General CommentIt's a song about a stereotypical art college student, who is trying his/her best to be alternative. They tick all the boxes - David Lynch, in a band who play "crazy" instruments, appreciation for Man Ray and the 4AD record label.

    The band's songs sound more twee/C86 than anything though. Not really sure what David Dundass has got to do with anything or why he's got no rock cakes, maybe Nigel Blackwell just thought it sounded good. And rightly so.
