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.

(MUSIC AND  BY  NEILSEN)

What’s the  
With  today
To  a  girl
To end her life that way

I don’t care what the  say
There’s no justification
For  
That way

She was young, she was pretty
Kept her  to herself
Everything to live for
If she  in herself

Now for  good person
Who  their own life
There’s  of  who
Beat  wives

Dolly oh Dolly
Why did they make you 
Take your life

Dolly oh Dolly
Why did they make you
Take your life

Cowards that creep
In the night
Looking for an
Easy fight

Where they  their victims
Oh so well
Making  lives
A  hell

Dolly oh Dolly
Why did they make you 
Take your life

Dolly oh Dolly
Why did they make you
Take your life

They pick on those
Who can’t  back
Keyboard  
Whose  are black

They  reputations
They  lives
They get away
With  lies

I’d like to put 
Their kind away
On an island
Then blow it away

Bullies are human
That’s what you say
But I don’t really
See it that way

They make you cry
They make you weep
Destroy your soul
And kill your sleep

Dolly oh Dolly
Why did they make you 
Take your life

Dolly oh Dolly
Why did they make you 
Take your life

What’s the  with people
Today
The  that put
Dolly away

Never left her alone
To be what she was
They  her
Just because

She was  nice
And  kind
The kind of person
You’d  leave behind

If you knew the pain
She was in
To not  her 
Would have been a sin

Dolly oh Dolly
Why did they make you 
Take your life

Dolly oh Dolly
Why did they make you
Take your life

Dolly oh Dolly
Dolly oh Dolly
Dolly oh Dolly
Dolly oh Dolly
