Song from the essential CLACK! -- GET IT NOW @ http://rsteviemoore.bandcamp.com/albu...
"In Fall 1979, RSM squeezed into a midtown Manhattan building at 56 West 45th Street with a cache of great new songs & experiments. He now was set, aimed to break down all barriers and collect audio styles galore in a "professional" 8 track environment, a major jump from mere tapedeck home demos. The project extended well into the next year (decade). Those many sessions are gathered on this 60 minute masterpiece, simply titled "CLACK!" from which many of Moore's greatest all-time hits emerged. Almost all of these original tracks eventually appeared on vinyl, scattered across RSM's many '80s LPs."
"Clack! is notable for being Moore's very first professional studio sessions, recorded in an 8-track jingle studio (run by a gentleman named Tom Clack, hence the onomatopoeic album title) in midtown Manhattan in late 1979. The sonic difference between this album and Moore's homemade '70s tapes is astonishing; the new version of "Part of the Problem," originally recorded in 1978, is not only definitive, it's arguably Moore's all-time finest three and three-quarters minutes." -- Stewart Mason, All Music Guide

CONFLICT OF INTEREST
i am stupid you are smart
getting ignored just breaks my heart
thinking in the auto where am i at
i don't wanna know the answer to that
not responsible for getting it right
holding my breath every night
scared to death you will not react
i don't wanna know the reaction to that
conflict of interest
i ain't gonna quit
conflict of interest
i ain't gonna change
there's a conflict of interest
i cannot improve
i can't no i can't
i don't know how
what is the reason for this grief
is my personality too deep
you might say i'm wasting my time
trying to solve this inhuman crime
take me back to maplewood get me a job
write apologetic letter to bob
anything is better than singing this song
nothing is right but something is wrong.
