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.

FOR HANNAH
Words and Music by Bruce Neilsen

Battered children
Battered wives
Too many
Broken lives

I try to hide
There’s nowhere to go
If this is life
I’d rather go

Away
Away
To where the angels
Call out my name

Just another stat
Of what could have been
Hardly shows the pain
I’m in

I take the beatings
And try to grin
There’s no way
That I can win

It’s too late
Too late
I’m already
On my way

Where the clouds 
Call me home again

This was my story
Too often told
No rainbow
No pot of gold  

The future’s gone
Already past
I tried to hide
Inside my mask

It didn’t work
And now I am gone
Just another victim
Who didn’t belong

Has gone
Has gone
To where the clouds
Call out their names

Hannah was her name
Don’t let
This happen
Again

She died with courage 
Don’t let it be
In vain
Hannah was her name

Hannah
Hannah
Hannah
Hannah
Don’t let this happen again
Don’t let this happen again
Don’t let this happen again
Don’t let this happen again
Hannah
Hannah
