Words of wisdom.

For someone whose cartoons make him seem like an isolated misanthrope, the artist and writer David Shrigley certainly has a lot of friends. In 2005 he released a book of lyrics called Worried Noodles, and now Franz Ferdinand, David Byrne, Hot Chip and 36 other lesser-known indie names have coloured in his sketchy thoughts with actual music. Ranging from folk to lo-fi electro, as with Shrigley’s words you’ll sometimes struggle to make any sort of sense of it all, but most acts manage to do their errant inspiration’s erratic genius justice.
