  • 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 keep on asking me how I've been
I keep saying fine
waking up in the morning time
going to bed at night
Some days I get some living done
Some days I just survive
Today I'll be out hiding
till I aint got nothing left to hide
Just putting in my time

And if you wanna go
Just come with me
And if you wanna know
Well I don't know
And if you wanna stay
Well, buh bye dear!
But if you're happy here
Why don't you say so?

I've lost & fond the thread so much
It's getting hard to care
Seems there's starts and ends of threads
Just growing everywhere
Maybe today I'll learn to swim
Or else I'll learn to fly
It seems we're living whim to whim
And we're just making up the signs
Putting in our time

And if you wanna go
Just come with me
And if you wanna know
Well I don't know
And if you wanna stay
Well, buh bye dear!
But if you're happy here
Why don't you say so?

Daddy I've been paying rent
Mummy I've been good
I tried to say all the things I meant
And mean the things I should
I guess that you've been watching me
Growing up online
But don't you go and think too much
About this silly life of mine
Just putting in my time

And if you wanna go
Just come with me
And if you wanna know
Well I don't know
And if you wanna stay
Well, buh bye dear!
But if you're happy here
Why don't you say so?
