David Lynch & Badalamenti's 'Thought Gang - A Real Indication

David Lynch & Badalamenti's 'Thought Gang - A Real Indication

"Filmed on Hi-8 in 1992, this DIY music video is a rare visual document of Lynch & Badalamenti's 'Thought Gang.' An esoteric jazz side-project born amidst the landscape of Twin Peaks, 'Thought Gang' featured several talented players in a mostly improvisational setting with Badalamenti providing vocal duties. 'A Real Indication' was the first of around 10 tracks to be recorded under the Thought Gang moniker, and one of only two Thought Gang tracks to have been released over the years (both 'A Real Indication' and 'The Black Dog Runs at Night' are included on the soundtrack to Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me). The remaining tracks await an LP release in 2011."

Lyrics Edit

So I'm goin' down this street

And I'm tryin' not to smile

'Cause the street is where I'm goin'

And the curb is at the side

By the sewer

Where the rain goes down

Like this girl I once knew

'Cause the sewer is so hollow

And the yell

Could last forever

Like the night my girl went away

Gone off in a world filled with stuff

Lights start changin'

And there's wires in the air

And the asphalt man

Is all around me

And I look down

And my shoes are so far away from me, man

I can't believe it

I got a real indication

Of a laugh comin' on

That old wind

Is howling like a cold steel train

Girl has left me

Not comin' back again

Got rusted bullet holes in the Dodge

And a heartburn like a solar flare

The grass by the house is dry, man

And a horsefly


By the big mistake In the distance, man

I see myself start to smile

I got a real indication of a laugh comin' on
