You Are My Sweet Baby: Love Song For Jeffrey Dahmer

Dudley Saunders
Dudley Saunders latest is disturbing, haunting & beautiful....

Since nobody extrapolates on their own creations better than Dudley here is what he has to say about it:

Here is the seventh lyric video from IN THESE BOXES (and also the album THE EMERGENCY LANE).  

The unusual thing is that I removed the song title for IN THESE BOXES, which made it more of a straightforward S&M love song (depending on how straightforward you feel an S&M love song can be). So it was an interesting bit of artistic re-purposing.  

Here's the text from the performance, which nods lightly toward Dahmer without tipping into serial murder, keeping it in the sphere of perverse romance:

"This memory was murdered.  This life was a secret.  It did not require drugs to be released.  He was transformed, as a hero should be in a proper story.  He found happiness.  The happiness was so upsetting that much care was taken to blot out any memory of it.   To ravel the story so it’s pattern could not be seen.  But his happiness had been here, in that Detroit basement that was soundproof."

Prepare yourself and watch the video after the jump.

It's Time For Dudley at:
