The Queens Last Tango

  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    ‘Death By Misadventure’ is a wacky exercise in psychedelia. Just accept that the moon is made of cheese and give Death By Misadventure a good listen, it’s well worth it. Mark Whitfield – Americana-UK

    “this is fine stuff, and in the tradition of all the best concept albums, is best enjoyed without trying to follow the somewhat dubious storyline … the Pajamas continue to do what they do best, namely tuneful acid-pop laced with inspired guitar work, harpsichords, a playful sense of English whimsy not heard since the late sixties, and naturally, choruses that sound like they’ve been plucked from some great undiscovered songbook in the sky. Nathan – The Active Listener

lyrics

Now the village is quiet, no hint of the riot to come

And the rebels in trees, as silent as the breeze, drink up their rum

They steady their nerves and ready their Gatling gun

And get ready for the dying that will come before the rising of the sun



Now the queen is getting sleepy and thinking of her creepy things

And 17 boys, all but one of them named Roy, greet the king

And the prince gets high dreaming of flying machines

As the Royal Golden Tub is filled up with virgins’ blood for the queen

She strips off her girdle, slips off her swastika ring

While 17 boys dressed up as dolls and toys blow the king

In the opium fog the prince and his dog start to sing

And there’s no sense of the sorrow to befall them all tomorrow
