I write funeral songs: Secret of Immortality

Damian Abraham is the leader of Canada’s greatest band, and one of the world’s greatest bands, Fucked Up. They are more than good; they are god-like geniuses.

Last night, Damian tweeted that he wants a song Ras Pierre and I wrote in the Hot Nasties, ‘Secret of Immortality,’ played at his funeral. I hope that doesn’t happen anytime soon – but here’s his tweet, and beneath it a link to the song, in which you hear Pierre doing what he and I used to call his “fiddly bits,” and me pontificating (per usual) about life and death and Norman Rockwell. In a nasally, twangy teenaged vox, age 17 or so.

    That’s a pretty great song. Reminds me of the Diodes.

    Yeah that is a great song. Doesn’t remind me of the Diodes though… maybe Wreckless Eric… or one of those bands Moe Berg was in before he came to Toronto.

    Awesome. I love that. It’s the folk music of my generation. About ten years later some friend of mine had a band called Swiller, based out of Brandon, MB. They had my favourite punk rock t shirts ever. Their logo and this legend underneath: “Fuck the sound check. Let’s get drunk.” And we did.
