  • Yes... It is the distant future, and CDs are no more... But their departure has left a gaping void in our collective psyche. It is an age of efficiency, no denying it... You can shop from your home, eat from your phone, design your kitchen on a magnetic train... But as you scroll n scroll thru your phone to pick the next tune it slowly dawns that something has been lost... Damn if there isn't still something missing - that special - something - to hold close - press to your heaving breast - admire from every angle and dapple with soft kisses... Oh God!

    I got you covered. Instead of sinking a lot of time and money into getting CDs printed, I sunk a whole lot of time and money into making pretty lil booklets! Tis the result of many many hours of me jiggling about listening to Fela Kuti and snipping up art auction catalogues. Each of the songs has its own artwork, typewritten lyrics, scrawled notes, and is printed on lovely glossy paper that makes you feel good to look at. Tasty.

lyrics

Hello, stranger
Hello, dear
Where did you run off to
What's with all the empty years
I guess it's gotten hazy now
It used to be so clear
So did you ever get that break
Or did it end in tears

Hello, stranger
Hello old friend
Not long back we were one of us
And now we're one of them
You tore up all my paper
And I ran off with your pen
We went so very far away
We can't go home again

Oh it's been getting stranger every day to be with you
I'm forgetting something
Some old picture that we drew
But here's the things we talk about
And there's the things we do
It's getting stranger every day between us two

Hello, stranger
Hello, me
Seems you're getting tied down
By the thing that set you free
Something missing in the mirror
That your eyes weren't made to see
And here I'm rooting for you
Like some hero on TV

Oh it's been getting stranger every day with you
But I don't think it's the distance
The directions that we grew
Just some things that we said were false
And other things were true
It's getting stranger every day between us two
