El President Video

Thom recorded this song with the band Drugstore and it was released in 1998 on the bands White Magic For Lovers LP. Thom and Drugstore's lead singer, Isabel, are great friends and have often been accused of having an affair! Isabel had this to say about that: "Itís not like that. I am a friend of his girlfriend. And he is so short! I like tall men. But I wonít say that there wasnít an atmosphere of seduction..."

And that's that. Not a bad track at all. But a bit short (like Thom?). Has a great urgency about it... Maybe this makes no sense, but it sounds very... Spanish.

Yeah, yeah, yeah

It came from the skies
It burst throught the gates
With no mercy or disguise
With their hearts set out in flames
I know I've seen the master plan


Well I'm just a man (I am just a man)
I'm not giving in
All the people understand
As they all fell down and prayed
I know I've seen the master plan

Yeah, yeah, yeah

They've killed the president
They've killed the president

It came from the skies (it came from the skies)
In all shades of green
We can always justify
We can measure up your dreams
I know I've seen the master plan

Yeah, yeah, yeah

They've killed the president
They've killed the president

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah

They've killed the president
They've killed the president

They've killed the president
They've killed the president

I'm just a man

Note: Black is Thom, Blue is Isabel Monteiro.
"Thom's a really wonderful & easy going sort of guy & I feel very priveliged to have worked with him. I think he has about the best voice around out of any band at the moment, really a stand out. There were a couple of times when he did become a little difficult to work with, like when things weren't going quite right, but I really think that's because he's such a perfectionist. We've toured with Radiohead before & that's sort of how he came to be involved in that song. We had to get him to come back & redo the vocal, because it turned out to be in the wrong key & he didn't mind at all." - Mike Chylinski of Drugstore
