From my covid lockdown sessions, Black Ivory H. Apart from the first 2 songs. An effort – short film in our garden 10th apr 2020. No planes, few cars, loud gardens, 3 better things. So many to keep from the lockdown. No soap operas filmed. Homeless housed. NHS respected. Eat food we buy. Video calling and checking in. Thursday clap the doctors and nurses.

Old demos from my youth

Going through some old storage DVD-R’s, I found a series of 8 demo albums I recorded around 2003ish. Rough recordings 1 to 8. All songs written and performed by me, except ‘Run with me‘ which has Claire Diamond on vocals, the singer in my first band, 2 out of 3 rule. Some of the other songs ended up being 2 out of 3 rule songs, some, with my second band Elbow Sisters, and some with my more recent solo albums. But the vast majority just got forgotten about.

Dulcet September night

Dulcet September night.

Now whatever did you need me for?
Bouncing off the walls of the harbour.
In the corridors of anything.
In the dormitory of the thinking.
Bouncing off the walls of the kitchen.

On my dulcet September night.

Matter of time

And what they say is a matter of time, is a matter of time.
It’s a matter of time.

And what they do is supported by you.
And what they do is recorded by you.
And what they do is just according to you.

The notice they want.
Clapper they do.

I didn’t know what to think when they were changing minds for me.

Colonisers

I came from a long descending line
of colonisers.
Are they at sea, and don’t look back?
But it seems they are attached.

Our neighbouring, with us.
Calm with them still with us.
As long as they are still with us.

Still more used
to have them
caught between Orion.
Making war in spite of.
A name is born inside us.

So many times

So many times that I
have ever run.
Before the latern flower has turned to grey.
Haven’t seen ya for a while.
Luv -a song – a l-ever lonely time.
I was on it for a while.
Luv -a song are never lonely.
He was an eye.
He was an eye lit time.

What you needed for me.
What you’re living with your house hound.
What your saddle for them.
And then you get there with your house hound.

Before
What you’re living with your house hound.

Maiden Alice

Unlike the night with girls, we danced.
You stood beside me. Not laid down.
I thought I’d have ya till the end.
But I guess we were just being young.

For my coat of day, Maiden Alice.
That I loan to you.

We’re working overtime tonight.
We couldn’t be bothered back in school.
We’ll keep on storing as we go.
But the name that lands in my room.
Call your own at night.
