Andy Shauf “Jacob Rose” – murderous thoughts poorly enacted

Jacob Rose‘ is one side of Andy Shauf’s new single ‘Satan/Jacob Rose‘ is a typically quircky number from the Toronto singer-songwriter.  Over a percussive accompaniment it tells of the somewhat maniac thoughts of a knife wielding man, alone in the kitchen.  Should he stab her?  Should he stab the couch?  What if he took his favourite knife out into the garden?  How might that end?  Badly.  From the point of view of boys who like to play with knives.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
