Phreshly Planet Sublime has proven to be my gateway drug to a full Phil Judd addiction. I've been a fan of Phil's art and music for decades, but was unaware of his more recent, extremely prolific period of music making. To my ears, Mr. Judd's creativity knows no limits. I am loving the new songs, and I look forward to investigating all of his solo recordings.

love in the space age true love in the space age living in the space age well I’m sitting here wondering what’s going on checked out ‘Dirty Money’ on Netflix tonight I don’t know if I’m coming or going it’s tearing me apart pretty as a picture that glows in the dark so let your heartbeat dance with me to a neon backlit symphony as we perambulate through 1901 the roads are mud & horseshit & the air is suffocating & a colourless cloud is blocking out the sun they’ve got amnesia.. oh no they’ve got amnesia don’t make it harder than it already is never felt so good to be alive I’m watching the shitshow unravel see how far the bulldust can travel I can’t believe my eyes so let your heartbeat dance with me thru a field of sunflowers merrily as we try so hard to look the other way & I ask myself was it ever thus ? & I ask myself what’s wrong with us ? come let your heartbeat dance with me they’ve got amnesia.. oh no they’ve got amnesia well this is love in the space.. true love in the space age honey living in the space age this is love in the space.. true love in the space age so come on now let’s run away & find a field of golden sunflowers love is the only thing we take with us cos nothing else really matters so let your heartbeat dance with me to a neon backlit symphony & the only thing we need to do is be there for each other
