Limits of Control

from by You Barbarians

  • Hand-Made Metallic Digipak Compact Disc
    Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Each cover is printed using striking copper, red and gold metallic foils onto black card. They are then cut, folded and glued with the cover image windowed in the front panel. Lyrics are beneath the transparent CD tray and credits on the facing page.

    I (Dave) print and assemble each case by hand. The design is by Danica Prowse.

    This printing technique is very variable and a degree of distressing/imperfections are expected as part of the process. Numbers are limited simply by the availability of materials and the time it takes to make these.

got sick of overthinking. I lost my faith & that’s a good thing. Baby I know we’re coming to the end of the road. I never saw it as a white lie when it was coming from a rich white guy. You know you’re selling down the river your own. I know you’re reaching the limits of your control. Twist on a pin when you get stuck in a lie. They’ll let you blame your memory or colour of tie. When smile & wave turns vile & caves. A middle money manager playing a role. This is corruption, the rich have had nothing sold. Eyes on everything you do. Sell us out, spot you at the next bailout. You vote the suit you get the sleaze. The banks choked us in ’08 & we gave them the keys. I know where every other cent’s gonna go. Blind trust in you. Empty shops of a dying city. The sick & poor out in the street. The pockmarked parks & the blackened seas. Thousands of kids without enough to eat. Are you really thinking through your legacy?
