Yard Act

D'yer ever find your bubble of intense loneliness and isolation momentarily burst by a flash of angry and wild solidarity?

That is what Yard Act do for me.

I must've heard Fixer Upper in 2020 and was utterly beguiled by the immaculate characterisation of the satirical protagonist in the song.

Somehow even now - or should I say, especially now - it seems even more vivid and real. And I guess in an odd way, it is nice to feel aligned with a shrewd and fun piss-take of this character who seem ten-a-penny.

Orite, Graham.
