The Immaculate Crows

The Immaculate Crows are a Brisbane-based alternative band formed originally by Bruce Neilsen and Chris Allen in 1982. The first line-up consisted of Hamish McKie (singer), Mark Kalsulke (rhythm guitar), Chris Allen (drums), Bruce Neilsen (lead guitar & principal songwriter) and Brad Leaf-Milham (bass guitar). Hamish left briefly and was replaced by David Page who would have been one of the first (if not the first) indigenous frontman/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. Mark Kasulke left and was replaced by Mark Hocknell. David left and Hamish returned. Chris Allen left and was replaced by Neal (surname unknown). The band broke up shortly afterwards and Bruce formed Insurrection and The Popes before playing with The Immaculate Crows again briefly in 1984 with Brad, Hamish, Mark and Dave Thomas (from The Popes) on drums. They did songs that covered a broad spectrum of genres including punk, new wave, psychedelic progressive rock and pop. Recently, Bruce and Mark Hocknell reunited, and several new songs are in progress. The Immaculate Crows are now a loose collection of Brisbane musicians with the focus on Bruce’s songs, guitar and arrangements, Mark’s guitar and production skills, Carolyn Neilsen’s production skills and vocal contributions from Peter Cleary, Melissa Grace Stevens and Nicky Steel. She’s A Mystery was written by Bruce in 1982 and performed back then, but was only recently recorded. She’s A Mystery is the first new song to be released under our new collaboration.

BUSINESS GIRL
(Words and music by Bruce Neilsen)

She works for a boss
Twice her age
Works by a window
In an open cage

She’s a business girl
Alone in the world
With people who don’t care
About the thoughts
She doesn’t share
With anyone

To get to the top
There’s one sure way
To please the boss
To get her pay

She’s a business girl
Alone in the world
With people who don’t care
About the thoughts
She doesn’t share
With anyone

I guess she knows 
The rules of the game
Don’t open your heart
Try to stay sane
I guess she knows
The rules of the game

Just one of the ones
Who learn the hard way
Money is power
If you lose your way

She’s a business girl
Alone in the world
With people who don’t care
About the thoughts
She doesn’t share
With anyone

I guess she knows 
The rules of the game
Don’t open your heart
Try to stay sane
I guess she knows
The rules of the game

Oh business girl	
Oh business girl
Oh business girl
Alone in the world
