I will be the first person in history
To die of boredom
And I will have as my epitaph
The second line of 'Black Ship In The Harbour'
That epitaph is “I was second class”, which has always struck me as a resigned reflection on Felt’s commercial popularity rather than a comment on the quality of their records. Later in the gig, Lawrence changes the second line of All The People I Like Are Those That Are Dead to “Maybe I should entertain/The very fact that I’m just plain”.
After Declaration, Felt played a cover of Lou Reed's Bottoming Out, which remains unreleased.
I’ve uploaded Declaration and Bottoming Out from the Burberries gig.
