Colorblind James Experience

Colorblind James Experience were an alternative roots/pop/rock band founded in 1980 in San Francisco, California . Bandleader and singer/songwriter/guitarist "Colorblind" James Charles Cuminale was originally from Rochester, New York but assembled early versions of what would become the Experience in Oswego, New York before relocating to San Francisco. After a couple years of mixed results there, the band regrouped and moved again, this time back to Rochester which remained its home base until Cuminale's premature death in 2001. The band enjoyed brief fame in the UK and Europe after BBC DJ John Peel gave the Experience some exposure, and their music has made a deep and lasting impression.

A police car and a screaming siren 
A pneumatic drill and ripped up concrete 
A baby wailing and stray dog howling 
The screech of brakes and lamp lights blinking 
That's entertainment.

A smash of glass and the rumble of boots 
An electric train and a ripped up 'phone booth 
Paint splattered walls and the cry of a tomcat 
Lights going out and a kick in the balls 

That's entertainment.
Days of speed and slow time Mondays 
Pissing down with rain on a boring Wednesday 
Watching the news and not eating your tea 
A freezing cold flat and damp on the walls 

That's entertainment.
Waking up at 6 a.m. on a cool warm morning 
Opening the windows and breathing in petrol 
An amateur band rehearsing in a nearby yard 
Watching the tele and thinking about your holidays 

That's entertainment.
Waking up from bad dreams and smoking cigarettes 
Cuddling a warm girl and smelling stale perfume 
A hot summers day and sticky black tarmac 
Feeding ducks in the park and wishing you were faraway 

That's entertainment.
Two lovers kissing amongst the scream of midnight 
Two lovers missing the tranquility of solitude 
Getting a cab and traveling on buses 
Reading the graffiti about slashed seat affairs 

That's entertainment.
