Gender Spender

they are selling them now down in the shops
no questions asked and no full stops.
cellophane wrapped they sparkle like toys
no little girls but lots of baby boys.

it's a buyers market or so they say
the customer is right as long as they pay.
they've left their morals high on a shelf
fuck the rights and wrongs just think of your self.

it's a savage twist of luck but that's how it is
a gender manufactured just like show biz.
next their demands will turn to other things
as money greases palms, money pulls strings.

all that was good has started to decay
don't look now just simply turn away
around the edge society starts to fray
what rotten luck if they all turn out gay.

it's a plastic world full of plastic people
burn that church, burn that steeple.
we know what we want and we get what we need
it's a corporate mouth that we all have to feed.

Great lyrics CJ you should record it

Is discharge Dada? No, it is not. Influenced by and with a similar attitude to, but not Dada..

Is discharge Fluxus? No, it is not. Influenced by and with a similar attitude to, but not Fluxus.

Is discharge art for intellectuals? No, discharge is for anyone and everyone who appreciates creativity in all its myriad forms. Be it static visual, audio or moving image; the written word or the deconstructed, non-linear form. The spoken word and noise.

All creativity is the springboard for discharge. It highjack’s a multitude of genres and disciplines and transposes them onto the internet. discharge is electronically transmitted art, be it via blog, myspace or whatever format possible, it can also be produced and seen in classic formats.

The discharge Chapbook. The discharge Building by Parts book. discharge has no rules. All contributors to discharge are responsible adults. discharge has no leaders although it has an elected body of rotating editors who oversee rather than dictate the flow of the group.

The aim of discharge is to profile creative people and to do away with the pretension of the art world. Everyday people creating art everyday to an exceptional quality.

Art by barrow boys and girls. discharge is international.
