Thoughts On The Dead

Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

How I Imagine The Final Moments Went

“DRUMMER. YOUR TIME HAS COME. FOLLOW ME TO TH–”

DEATH BEING HIT ON THE HEAD WITH A POLO MALLET NOISE

“OW!”

“Fuck off, then!”

“DID YOU HIT ME? YOU CAN’T HIT DEATH.”

“Watch me, son.”

DEATH BEING WHACKED AGAIN NOISE

“STOP THAT!”

“You gonna fuck off or not?”

“YOU ARE ON MY LIST.”

“You’re on my list, too, sunshine. C’mere.”

GINGER BAKER THROWING ONE OF HIS CHILDREN AT DEATH NOISE

“ARE YOU REALLY TOSSING CHILDREN AT ME?”

“They’re my children. I’ll do what I want with ’em!”

“STOP BEING SUCH A PROBLEM.”

“Absolutely not. Fuck off.”

“HEY. GET OFF THAT HORSE.”

“Can’t kill what ya can’t catch!”

“OH, FOR FUCK’S SAKE. BINKY!”

DEATH (ON A PALE HORSE) GALLOPING AFTER A LUNATIC (ON A POLO PONY) NOISE

“GET BACK HERE!”

“Fuck off!”

  1. Ummm…

    …..

    I know your post has a specific topic and we should not distract you from your art..

    But….

    Well …

    That said..

    Why does that horse have a mullet haircut??

  2. I suspect his last words were something along the lines of “Fuck you, Bruce! I outlasted you again!”

  3. In all the obits, I am not seeing mention of Ginger’s time with Hawkwind. As the author of the Hawkwind BLANGA Guide, I feel compelled to rectify this omission . . .

  4. Subtle Discoworld reference (Binky) is noted and appreciated

  5. I keep staring at the photo atop this post with borderline horror. In addition to the “I will kill and eat you” look on Ginger’s face, check the size of the man’s right hand . . . It may be a trick of perspective, but it looks like a great giant walloping club of drum-pounding and face-punching flesh there . . .

      I don’t wanna toot my own snoot, but I have re-read this post a dozen times and I keep laughing at the thought of Ginger Baker violently assaulting Death. It’s the simple things in life.

      • Yep. It’s a classic. I suspect they’ll end up in an Arthur Treachers at some point before Ginger finally succumbs . . . . Him and Death can both agree that a basket of fried batter bits is one of humanity’s greatest accomplishments . . .

      • When I read this in my head it’s the accent from Monty python and the holy grail, like the black knight scene. This bit should win some sort of comedy Award in a a more fair world. Too funny! I vaguely remember reading bakers book and thinking it was an interesting read if you haven’t read it.

    It is mesmerizing. Those eyes. Those mitts. That knee. Multiple levels of potential violence.
