    3:56

    ‘All Possibilities’ was the third single to be taken from Badly Drawn Boy’s top ten album ‘Have You Fed The Fish?’ the follow-up to 2000’s Mercury Music Prize winning release ‘The Hour Of Bewilderbeast’.

    The release of ‘Have You Fed The Fish?’ came hot on the heels of the critically acclaimed ‘About A Boy’ soundtrack and the hit singles, ‘You Were Right’ and 'Born Again'. 'Have You Fed The Fish' has been described by Uncut magazine as “a modern classic” and by Arena as “the album of the year.

    Badly Drawn Boy recently caused a stir in central London while filming the video for 'All Possibilities'. Two secret cameras filmed Gough busking the single to a mixture of bemused and indifferent commuters outside Waterloo Station. As was widely reported in the next days newspapers, in the first hour and a half of performing BDB made the grand sum of £1.60 enough to make Gough comment 'It's well below the average wage isn't it? I'd be better off working at McDonalds...'

    Badly Drawn Boy - Another Devil Dies.
    From the album One Plus One Is One.

    Lyrics:

    Well your face still makes my day
    Just like it did in the past
    When you turned me away
    I kept coming back for more
    That's a choice I chose
    You were so distant
    But I stayed close

    It feels like we've weathered the storm
    Without having the privilege of calm

    And when we sing
    I hear another devil dies
    When that bell rings
    An angel gets its wings
    And if I pushed
    Would you all fall down?
    Coz I don't need this on my back

    The hatred will tear us apart
    If you don't do what you did at the start

    Should I go or will you stay
    We'll find a plan of attack
    There's a price to pay
    For showing no reaction
    To all the simple things
    In time you will know what I know
    But for now you win

    The hatred will tear us apart
    Another devil will take out your heart

    But when we sing
    I hear another devil dies
    When that bell rings
    An angel gets its wings
    And if I pushed
    Would you all fall down
    Coz I don't need this on my back

    It seems like we've weathered the storm
    Without having the privilege of calm

    The Place I Want To Be

    Old town seven times erased
    Crawled out from the pyre again
    This is the place I want to be
    Is the place I’ll fall

    Silkworm spin a thread for me
    No waste, nothing left that I don’t need
    Yours is the face I want to see
    It’s the place I’m warm

    And I won’t turn my back on this
    Though I never knew that I wanted it
    Bough bent beneath my weight
    I’m broke
    In my own
    Kinda way

    It’s magical
    And I’m allowed
    To see it straight
    I’m older now
    It thawed me out
    It’s in my wake

    This is the place I want to be
    It’s the place I’m yours
    This is the pain I longed to feel
    You’re the place I’m home

    I won’t turn my back on this

    I promise you will get old
    I promised you everything
    To protect you wherever you go
    I'll give you this diamond ring

    Just promise you will remember
    A promise should last forever
    Right up to the dying embers
    Of a fire that burns so slow

    It's a different day everyday
    Don't want you to walk alone
    But how long can we carry on?
    When all of these things have gone

    Just promise you will remember
    A promise should last forever
    It's the last of the dying embers
    Of a fire that burns so slowly

    It's a beautiful thing to do
    Sometimes you just have to walk away
    Remember I do love you
    Have courage in what you say

    Just promise you will remember
    Promises last forever
    Still left of the dying embers
    The fire that burns so slowly

    Sometimes you just have to walk away
    Sometimes you just have to walk away
    Wishing that today was yesterday
    Yeah, sometimes you just have to walk away

    Damon Gough (AKA Badly Drawn Boy) performed for Googlers in Mountain View on December 14, 2010.

    About Damon Gough:

    Badly Drawn Boy, aka Damon Gough, is a dour and retiring Mancunian whose deftly-woven melodies and bittersweet lyrics first marked the renaissance of the alternative singer-songwriter.

    His debut album, Hour of Bewilderbeast (2000) was a stripped-down, soul-filled reaction to the overblown excess of later Britpop. Its songs such as The Shining (featured in a Gap advert) and Once around the block were rapturously received by the critics: the record won the 2000 Mercury Music Prize and went on to sell over 300,000 copies. Gough was then asked to write the soundtrack to the 2002 film, About a Boy, by author Nick Hornby. Hornby says of Hour of Bewilderbeast, It's thoughtful, quirky, melodic, it has soul. It seemed to me that Damon could write a wonderful film score.

    Hornby describes the About a Boy soundtrack's A minor incident as a sweet, heartfelt, acoustic strummer with a wheezy Dylanesque harmonica solo, and cites it as one of the songs that changed his life. The soundtrack's first single, piano ballad Silent Sigh, broke into the UK top 20. His next album, 2002's Have you fed the fish? garnered Gough his highest-charting single, You were right. It was followed by 2004's more introspective release, One plus one is one. His last album, Born in the UK was released in October 2006. Gough says that he wanted to capture something about being British or English. I want to stand up and say I'm proud to be English. And it seems that that right's been taken away from us for some reason.

    Has it really been a decade?
    It feels a lot longer.
    It feels like yesterday.

    It was June 2000 when the Mercury-winning, seminal The Hour of the Bewilderbeast, announced the arrival of the badly drawn genius of Damon Gough. It's been a curious, wonderful, inimitable, unpredictable decade of major prizes and minor incidents, all possibilities and pissing in the wind, at the end of which we find Gough starting the new decade as he did the last...at a creative peak, and back on his own label. It feels like a new beginning in a lot of ways, nods a refreshed and revitalised Gough over a pint in a Manchester beer garden, it definitely feels like I'm on a roll.

    Penning the soundtrack to last year's Caroline Aherne film The Fattest Man in Britain sparked a period of unprecedented creativity for Gough, resulting in a wealth of great new songs. Invigorated and inspired by the approach of artists like mid-period Bob Dylan or Neil Young, who would go into the studio to record an album when the songs were flowing, rather than when the music industry cycle dictated to them, Gough decided the best way to capture this surge, and give the songs the exposure they deserved was to release a trilogy of albums. I've got such a wealth of ideas I want to work on, explains Gough. and intrinsically, as a creative person, you don't want to switch off the flow of ideas, because that's what keeps you ticking.

    Gough is famous for sporting a woolly hat. He is married with two children and lives in Manchester.
