I heard Law’s Hustle on BBC Introducing
last Sunday night. Googling her wasn’t easy; I tried for a while, then got lazy, then abandoned ship for a bit. This morning, I saw that Crack in the Road
posted her video (woohoo!), taking out all of the hard work for me, and just leaving me with the responsibility of further spreading the word. Hustle is great; the beat, the grittiness, the voice, the echos, the hand-clapping. All good things.
Laura Holt is from Edinburgh. Lyrics are below the video.
Come come return of the ugly
No good at makin’ the money
Until the eagle grins
Come come come pull my rings off
Come fill me don’t like it too soft
Come find me find me in the shadows
A darkened place where you dare not go
I do despair,
I do despair
Why don’t you sense a dime?
And you always…
