David Bridie sings The Centre Cannot Hold from the Fiasco album by My Friend the Chocolate Cake.
David says of this song -
From the W B yeats poem..”things fall apart, the centre cannot hold”..a war reflection..pretty simple tune, just blocked piano and droning strings … listened to Robert Wyatt’s “stalingrad” off “nothing can stop us” and then saw a doco set in Kabul in the winter time during the current war .. the parallel struck me…. there’s lighter songs on the album, this aint one of them:)
