  • 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

You're gone again
Can't see for all the paper
Don't know where the hell it ends
All our love and all our fire
And you're down there getting high
While I'm stewing here as usual in my pen

It's all the same
Sick of looking for the story
From my lonely swamp of paint
You've all worked it out just fine
With your glances and your lines
So I'll stay here with the voices and the names

You say you like me but I'm not so sure you like me
Cause why the hell's this place always so empty
Why do you all your friends seem so unfriendly
You say you like me but I'm not so sure you like me

But take your time
Really there's no special hurry
I am paralysed and blind
If you see me in the morning
I'll be me and nothing more
If you dig me up and give me back my eyes

You say you like me but I'm not so sure you like me
Cause why the hell's this place always so empty
Why do you all your friends seem so unfriendly
You say you like me but I'm not so sure you like me

You say you like me but I think you wanna blind me
And like an idiot I just wait for you to want me
Like you want each other thing you see beside me
Like you want me out so they won't have to know me
Like you wanna live your life and never show me
You say you like me but I doubt you ever liked me
