Go fund him

Why has Louis never been paid for his record sales? BUT still owns all his publishing? Because he always used his (APRA paid) publishing to pay for each consequent new record and handed them over, complete, to record labels, so their ability to exploit him (by owning him via an advance) was impossible. Yes, he was ripped off on actual record sales. Record Labels are renowned for all sorts of shitty, immoral behavior to their artists. That is why Louis has always been poor. But he is FREE. Please continue to support him to be an authentic performing, recording artist. You know whatever you give, he will give back ten fold. I started this campaign for him at gofund.me/touringandaccomm . And with it he has achieved some small freedoms, and rewarded everyone with his beautiful concert of The Art of Darkness. Please support him if you can afford a small donation. It could make a mountain of difference to us all. - Rachael Slattery


Idiot Waltz

That line don't make it here no more
Nothing reanimates the old times
Black clouds to the west
Darkness coming from the East Side

Get your friends out of the car
We got a date in the trees tonight
Take off your clothes, you ain't going far
You're going to give me fun tonight

Turn on the headlights for the idiot waltz
Turn on the lights, watch us fall

Your body don't get me off no more
It takes a lot of smack to do that
We never made love in the trees
Or took you down on your mat

Now, winds of change are blowing out the fire
I feel your breath on my neck
I hear the darkness and wires

Turn on the headlights for the idiot waltz
Turn on the lights, watch us fall

It was foolish to be alive
It was foolish in a foolish time

Turn on the headlights for the idiot waltz
Turn on the lights, watch us fall
