On The Ground

The Immaculate Crows

The Immaculate Crows

The Immaculate Crows are a Brisbane-based Australian Alternative band formed originally by Bruce Neilsen and Chris Allen in 1982. Their second singer was David Page who would have been one of the first (if not the first) indigenous frontmen/vocalists in an Australian band. David had been a teenage pop-star. He was the first Australian to be signed to a Motown label. He sadly passed away in 2016. The band broke up in 1984 and Bruce formed Insurrection and The Popes before playing with The Immaculate Crows again briefly in 1984. They did songs that covered a broad spectrum of genres including punk, new wave, psychedelic, progressive rock and pop. Bruce and former member Mark Hocknell reunited in 2020 and several new songs have been released since. The Immaculate Crows is now a partnership where Bruce writes the lyrics, music and arrangements and Mark produces and plays on the initial tracks. Bruce also plays on the initial tracks. Carolyn Neilsen records vocals and extra tracks as well as doing the final mix which is sent to Kagen Step for mastering. Vocalists are sourced locally.

(words and  by  Neilsen)


Madman in the city
Talking to himself
Isn’t it a pity
When it  you  of yourself
No  in  armour
Will come to her aid
She cut her  and  to die
And now she’s on her way

Chorus 1

All surviving
In this city
Whose  is the centre
Of an ugly cancer

All surviving
In this city
Going up  down
And all our lives
We’re  on the ground

Verse 2

Fashion,  and elegance
The  of the rich
If you can’t pay they tell you that
You can’t  to bitch
People  everywhere
As  there is no time
To  down a  while
There must be a  time

Chorus 2

We’re all together
In this  mess
Individuals,  and free
And all the rest

But if we don’t try
We don’t try
A  bit more
You can say  to me
Because I want more

But if we don’t try
We don’t try
A  bit more
You can say  to me
Because I want more
