In the week The Australian Pink Floyd Show commenced their British tour in Plymouth...


When rockers turn fifty

And light up cigars

Priorities change

So they lay down guitars

And pleading exhaustion

They open naff bars

Or tend to their fish farms

And race vintage cars

The minute this happens

Australians come

With counterfeit sounds

For a much lower sum

The punters, it seems

In the past have enjoyed

Aussie Doors, Bjorn Again

Now it's Aussie Pink Floyd

And what should we think

Of this living museum

Of sounds disinterred

From the rock mausoleum?

Strange in an age

Boasting Damon and Liam

That so many bucketheads

Flock out to see 'em
