Certainly, in a piece called “Rollatruc” (the mis-spelled name of a brand of fork-lift vehicle), it is human qualities that burn through: “He said, ‘How many baskets did you put on / that pallet?’ / I said, ‘About 28.’ / He said, “Well, I just counted 15, mate.”, A little later, with echoes of their fellow East Midlander Alan Sillitoe’s Saturday Night & Sunday Morning, there comes this: “That’s the trouble with people like you and me / we get stressed out about pallets and fucking nothingness /cos that’s all we got / we walk around all our fucking lives telling bosses / and anyone else to fuck off /Fistfight after fistfight after fight / until all we got left is a forty minute break / cos everybody’s too scared to tell us /we’re only allowed twenty.”, There is similar sadness in the words that seem to shine a light on Williamson’s own thoughts, often by describing drug comedowns: “Impending angina destinies / the regret of 14 years wasted / I cry my fucking eyes out / cos yesterday, I really miss my bastard yesterdays.” More broadly, he is good at evoking the condition of a generation that will not give up the chemical recklessness it discovered in the late 1980s and early 90s, something examined in a very bleak piece titled “Graham”: “Loads of old people necking pills / ecstasy has truly taken its toll on some of these faces / the fucking eyes have hills.” He also repeatedly nails the sense of popular culture being reduced to endless retrofied options that always come with the tang of disappointment: “I fuckin’ hate Northern Soul / it’s like Motown’s on the dole.”, Williamson’s latest work differs from the earlier stuff in the book in that it is more clipped and chaotic (the pieces in the last quarter often read a bit like cut-ups), sometimes sacrificing narrative in favour of mood and a sense of place.
