Roy Harper – Big Fat Silver Aeroplane

I was writing my Roy book and playing this song from his first album. It is really nice to reacquaint myself. Such a great album and song.

This is a song about Roy’s rejection of the values of society – the capitalist greed and acquisition of wealth instead of experiencing life.

It’s full of such interesting drug references. A poetic song of social comment. It’s good to have songs full of imagery, meaning and observation.

Meanwhile, the polystyrene obelisks rule.

I'd like to hear from you...
