about

Recorded in my parents' attic during the long summer holiday after my GCSEs, on a Sony shoebox cassette recorder: www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-TCM939-Shoebox-Cassette-Recorder/dp/B002H9HZH8. A rudimentary system for multitracking was used: I recorded the original track onto cassette, then played that through my stereo as a backing track as I added further tracks (violin, second guitar, slide guitar, piano etc) and recorded that onto my shoebox recorder.

about

The Shrieking Violets Manchester, UK

When I was at school I didn't say very much, but wrote copiously. My ambitions were to be editor of the Times, a rock 'n' roll music journalist or on Top of the Pops.

Track Name: Going Gone
Go to bed my little one
Going gone
Go to bed my little one
Going gone
Luxuriate in silken bed
Going gone
I'm not going anywhere
I'm remaining by your side
I know you're near me
I can hear your breathing
I'm not going anywhere
You're not anywhere
Track Name: Untitled (I See)
Please don't make me blind
So never make me deaf
Please just clear my mind
So I can think again

Don't do for me
What I should have done years ago
Don't do for me
What I should have done years ago

Why do I believe
In something I can't see
Why do I believe
In something I can't touch?

Don't do for me
What I should have done years ago
Don't do for me
What I should have done years ago
