  • 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

Let's start it up again
No use looking for the reasons
With a head so sour & slow
Another season going
And all those weeks behind us
Doing oh-I-don't-know

And things'll have to wait a while
After all, not old enough to care yet
Can't be sure we'll make it over
After all, not true enough to swear yet
And always there's the feeling
I know we're on our way but we're
Not there yet

Still I'd rather sing in stations
than rely on something tried
& true where you know the ending
Puts a strain on these relations,
sure, we've drifted in and out
But then we do our mending

And it's you, love
I know you'll keep me sane
I'll go on working for pennies
If it leads to some kinda change
I might run off from time to time
But I won't run away
I'll stay, dear, I'll stay,
Some day

But it'll have to wait a while
After all, not old enough to care yet
Can't be sure we'll make it over
After all, not true enough to swear yet
But always there's the feeling
I know we're on our way but we're
Not there yet
