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.

Verse 1
In the city
I wandered around
Left with my anger
No friends around

Verse 2
Kicked out of discos
For not having shoes
Out of the womb
Left with the Blues

Bridge
In the city
I felt so alone
In the city 
So far from home

Chorus
Looking for something 
I couldn’t explain
Looking for someone
So I could feel sane

Verse 3
Like an alien planet
I couldn’t perceive
In the city 
I tried to believe

Verse 4
A lady took me
For what I was worth
A lady deceived me 
Left me feeling worse
Left me feeling worse

Bridge
In the city
I felt so alone
In the city 
So far from home
(Repeat Bridge once)

Chorus
Looking for something 
I couldn’t explain
Looking for someone
So I could feel sane
(Repeat Chorus 5 times)
