DAILY ART FIX: Music Video -‘The Lively Arts’ by the Damned, Illustrated by Teenagers

Art world links which caught my eye…

From the Damned’s 1980 Black Album. This Youtube version was illustrated by teenagers:

Innovation Day 2013 at Dixons City Academy in Bradford, West Yorkshire, UK. I had a class of 13, 14, and 15 year olds for the day. I showed them my own version of I don’t wanna grow up, by the Ramones first. They each got a line from the song (they didn’t have a clue what the song was). By the afternoon they had worked together to create their own illustrated Damned song, and they loved it. Who says it’s impossible getting a bit of Punk into the classroom?!

Lyrics
I’m gonna stay in bed all day
I’m not gonna hear a word you say
It’s gonna be a life of style for me
Electric blankets, pillows, fire and TV
Take a look outside
Those lively arts are on the slide
And culture’s just a bore
When you’re angry young and poor
And if I got my way
Those idle rich would pay
When the discussion starts
On the lively arts
I’m gonna be a lazy slob
Sod the folks and sod the job
And tell the foreman that I’m ill
And in a week I’ll be here still
Yes I will
Take a look outside
Those lively arts are on the slide
And culture’s just a bore
When you’re angry young and poor
And if I got my way
Those idle rich would pay
When the discussion starts
On the lively arts
