About the artist: ”My name is Bobby Aherne and I live in Dublin, Ireland. I think I’ve released about twenty albums so far. I also make music videos for myself, as well as bands like Ginnels, Skelocrats, Grand Pocket Orchestra,…
In 2010, I made a song called ‘A Morbid Fascination’. For the drum track, I used a sample of the song ‘I Fought The Law’ by The Bobby Fuller Four - a band that I knew literally nothing about (apart from that song).
My song contains the following lines:
You climbed so high and fell as far in an instant.
You flew so high and fell as far in an instant.
You hiked so high and fell as far in an instant.
You got so high and fell as far in an instant.
(and yes I’m well aware that using “climbed” and “hiked” as variations on a theme is cheating)
Anyway, tonight I was watching a show from the 90’s about Bobby Fuller’s mysterious death, and had a bit of a giggle at what A.J. Benza had to say about the whole affair.
