about

KLAXON is a very British comic horror graphic novel by Si Spencer and Dix, published by Self Made Hero.

'An urban nightmare of finely balanced dialogue and artwork as if Raymond Briggs teamed up with Daniel Clowes and they dropped the bad brown acid. Which is my idea of an evening well spent' Alan Martin, creator of Tank Girl

'Deeply disturbing... very funny' Steve Oram ,Sightseers

The ebook edition came with an exclusive soundtrack re-telling the surreal, disjointed story in glorious songs.

Puppet theatre composer Paul Mosley is joined by members of his award winning Red Meat Orchestra along with 'Oh Sister' singer Sarah Berresford to create 7 strange and beautiful vignettes that now have a life outside of the ebook. Combining chamber cello and flute, with bluesy backline, fuzz guitars and sic-fi synths 'Klaxon' is a strange and strangely likeable musical oddity.

Track Name: Paul Mosley and the klaxon band - Grey/OK
tick tock tick tock tick tock tick tock tic tac toe

Dreams are made of silver threads
silver is just grey with better special effects
at the right time in the right frame
every colour looks the same

and it is Grey
and it's OK
keeps me right night and day
yes it is Grey
and it's OK
keeps me right night and day
sees me through

the air we breathe is made of skin
everybody knows that
but no-one really takes it in
come on take it in
you are breathing skin
you are breathing skin

and it is Grey
and it's OK
keeps me right night and day
and it is Grey
and it's OK
keeps my right night and day
sees me through

Track Name: Paul Mosley and the klaxon band feat. Sarah Berresford - Like Christmas
There is nothing that she wants
and nothing he can bring
love in all it's glory
thrives on lesser things

there is so much he could want
there so much she could she could bring
love in all its foolishness
has died for lesser things

the silence drifts like snow
fumbling he asks her name
'Carole'
'Oh, Like Christmas?'
'No'.

She closes the door
he slowly walks away

There is nothing that she wants
and nothing he can bring
love in all its glory thrives on lesser things
love in all its glory survives on lesser things
Track Name: Paul Mosley and the klaxon band - Mother's Milk/The Young
A little bit of light gets in
changes everything
see the dust is dancing
when a little bit of light gets in

Hear them buzzing like bees
see them down on their knees
mother's milk and honey
hear them buzzing like bees

a blue boy now appears holding a TV screen
showing amazing scenes
of what might have been
or is yet to be
it is hard to see
I wish I wish I wish wish I
I wish I wish I wish wish I

Oh the young the young the young
oh you break my heart
oh you set me on my fire
all of those wasted days
Oh the young the young the young
o you break my heart
oh you set me on fire
all of those wasted days
you should not be doing that
you should not be doing that

a broken boy
takes a beating
and his rubber face
bounces back into place
it is very strange
and it should not be that way
I wish I wish I wish wish I
I wish I wish I wish wish I

Oh the young the young the young
oh you break my heart
oh you set me on my fire
all of those wasted days
Oh the young the young the young
o you break my heart
oh you set me on fire
all of those wasted days
you should not be doing that
you should not be doing that

Oh the young the young the young the young the young the young the young the young...

Track Name: Paul Mosley and the klaxon band feat. Sarah Berresford - Sometimes You Don't Have A Choice
Dreams are made of silver threads
of the grim and grey and the silent threats
and the bang bang bang bang bang on the wall

Sometimes you don't have a choice
Sometimes you don't have a choice

Sing a song of dancing heads
of tic tac toe of violence
and the bang bang bang bang bang on the wall

Sisters sing a song so high
bringing liquorice all-sorts from the sky
falling falling falling falling fall like rain

Sometimes you don't have a choice
Sometimes you don't have a choice
Track Name: Paul Mosley and the klaxon band feat. Sarah Berresford - Motorcycle
You hear a cold, clear voice
telling you you've got no choice
have to be a big man brave
yeah you have to be a big man brave

see the long dark road
telling you man you got to go
you got to bring the big man down
yeah you've got to bring the big man down

get on your motorcycle and ride
out on your motorcycle no where to hide

He's alone all alone he's alone all alone
even rats have brothers but the man is all alone
He's alone all alone he's alone all alone
yes the devil has disciples but the man is all alone

You hear a cold, clear voice
telling you you've got no choice
have to be a big man brave
yeah you have to be a big man brave

see the long dark road
telling you man you got to go
you got to bring the big man down
yeah you've got to bring the big man down

get on your motorcycle and ride
out on your motorcycle no where to hide

He's alone all alone he's alone all alone
even rats have brothers but the man is all alone
He's alone all alone he's alone all alone
yes the devil has disciples but the man is all alone

the man is all alone
everybody is alone
everybody is alone

He's alone all alone he's alone all alone
even rats have brothers but the man is all alone
He's alone all alone he's alone all alone
yes the devil has disciples but the man is all alone
Track Name: Paul Mosley and the klaxon band feat. Sarah Berresford - Klaxon Theme/The Future
Gave my life to the dark last night
oh the klaxon sounds
gave my life to the black moonlight
oh the klaxon sounds

so sleep now
a soul at peace now
so sleep now
a soul at peace now
well maybe again
yes go round again
it's never the end

Gave my love to the dark last night
oh the klaxon sounds
gave my love I did what was right
oh the klaxon sounds

so sleep now
a soul at peace now
so sleep now
a soul at peace now
well maybe again
yes go round again
it's never the end

we're in the future now
you look happy did it all work out
and who's that by your side
I recognise that smile
it's Oh My God!
you look happy
they look happy
but are we happy together?

when the klaxon sound
oh we settle down
the dream is over
when the klaxon sounds
oh we settle down
the dream is over
you look happy
they look happy
but are we happy together?
