Very Friendly
Throbbing Gristle Lyrics

It was just an ordinary day in Manchester. Ian Brady and Myra Hindley... drinking German wine.... Their mother had gone to bed upstairs. She slept very well. They used to give her three Seconal every night with her cocoa. And Ian Brady put on his best clothes and his blue suede shoes, and he decided to go out with Myra Hindley, because it was six months, and one of those special days. So Myra Hindley put on a dark wig and drove Ian Brady to the mainline station. And while she stayed in the car, Ian Brady went cruising on the platform. Same night, Edward Evans was also getting dressed in his best, and his mother, who didn't know that he was a little bit inclined to the young men, wished him well and slicked his hair and put on his winklepickers, and he went down to the mainline station. He waited for an hour, and he was beginning to think that there wasn't going to be any 'trade' that night. And then somebody came towards him wearing blue suede shoes, and it was Ian Brady, and he introduced himself, "Hi, my name's Ian, I saw you down at the Viking last week. Why don't you come back to my place and we can, uh, drink some German wine.... I've got a car around the corner, my sister's there, she'll drive us back. It's only in Hyde, it's not too far. If it gets late, you can always stay the night..."

Ian Brady and Myra Hindley... Very friendly... Ian Brady... And Myra Hindley... Very friendly...

So Edward Evans and Ian Brady went to the car and Myra Hindley drove them back to the little council house, said hello to the dog when they went in through the front door, and their mother was still asleep upstairs. And she made some excuses and she switched on the TV set, and it was This Is Your Life with Eamonn Andrews interviewing Sir Stanley Matthews. And she went in the kitchen, said she wanted to make some sandwiches for work tomorrow, and Ian Brady and Edward Evans sat on the sofa. And Ian Brady started to play with Edward Evans's fly, and he got a bottle, and a couple of glasses, and right under the photo of Myra Hindley's mother, they started to drink... drinking German wine... And Myra Hindley went over up the road to see David Smith, and Maureen her sister, and David Smith didn't have a shirt on and he was drinking tea with his wife. They had a TV set on too. They're all in the game. It's only information. And she said to David Smith, "Why don't you come back to our place David. We've got something rather special to show you." And he said, "OK, let me just put on my jacket." And they both set off, walking through the night, walking through Hyde to their little house, one side of the house looking out on to the porch. They knocked on the door, but he was used to that because Ian Brady had some funny habits.

Ian Brady and Myra Hindley... Very friendly... Ian Brady... And Myra Hindley... Very friendly...

And when he got inside he heard some funny noises coming from the front room over the Eamonn Andrew's voice. Myra Hindley said, "Why don't you go in there David, you might like what you see." So he opened the door while Myra went in the kitchen to get more German wine... And when he went inside he looked over to the sofa, and there was Ian Brady CHOPPING AT EDWARD EVAN'S HEAD WITH AN AX. And he was chopping, and chopping, and the ax was going into the back of his neck, and there was blood spurting over the Church Of England prayerbook, and a few drops landed on the TV screen and ran down Eamonn Andrew's cheek, as some bits of bone and white brain landed on the harp right near the brass brush that they used to clean the chimney. And there was vinyl on the floor, which was lucky. And it took quite a few hits before Edward Evans gargled. Ian Brady asked David Spick for some rope which he had wrapped around a stick that he used to play with his dog, and they put it tight around Edward Evans's neck until he strangled. And he made a strange noise - aaararaoghgyaae... AND THEN HE DIED. And he was just a lump of stuff. Just a bit more information.
Ian Brady and Myra fucking Hindley... Very, very friendly... Ian Brady... And Myra Hindley... Very friendly...

And when David Spick helped finish wrap up the body and take it upstairs, he made excuses and left, well frightened. Very friendly. And he went home to his wife, and he told her what had happened, and they agreed that they needed to tell the police. But they were very frightened, so they stayed awake all night, gripping a knife from the kitchen, hoping that Ian Brady wouldn't come around and say anything else. And eventually it was morning. And they went out of the house at about 8 o'clock. Outside, into the street, it was Mrs. Bradley walking her dog, a little white poodle, and Mrs. Martin going to Lloyd's bank to clean the waste paper basket, and they went quickly ran up the road until they got to the red telephone box. And when they got to the telephone box he gave his wife the knife and said, "Wait here while I ring them." And then he went inside the phone box and dialed 9... 9.... 9..... NINE......... 9, 9, 9, 9, 9, 9. And it was the police station, and the rather fat police sergeant who was trying to finish checking his football pools heard the phone ring, and he said, "Oh, shit." And he put down his mug of tea which had a coronation picture of the queen on it, and he picked up the phone, and when David Smith heard the policeman answer and say, "Yes, what do you want?", he told him and said - "THERE'S BEEN A M-M-M-M-M-M-M-M-M-URDER!!!"

Ian Brady... And Myra Hindley... Very friendly... There's been a murder... There's been a murder... A murder... Very Friendly... Ian Brady... Myra Hindley... There's been a murder...

There's been a m-m-m-m-muuuuurrrrdrrrerrrr

Take The Trip

Every detail is so unpoetic, so unartistic, so uninclined to present itself as anything other than a matter of fact account of real murder.

There's something so dark here that you can't get in even the heaviest metal music.
