Winter Is Coming

Exclusive Downloads

Bandcamp. If you've heard of it you'll know why we are using it! If you've not heard of it you'll thank us for telling you!

Can you imagine a website where bands can upload full resolution audio files (.aiff) and you can chose what type of format your download is, and there's a minimum of third party overheads reducing the band's income.

Imagine no more because that's what Bandcamp is. By starting with the highest possible quality source, they’re able to convert our tracks into a bunch of different format and quality combinations for you to listen to, including MP3 (320, VBR V0), Ogg Vorbis, Apple Lossless, FLAC and AAC (aka .m4a or iTunes store format)

You can see why we have chosen bandcamp as our supply partner for our downloads.

Having said that In the days of our demo recordings the facilities available to up-coming bands were rather basic compared to this century!

The demo tracks were mostly recorded on a cassette based "portastudio" or in some cases directly off the sound desk at gigs but this also imbues the tracks with a certain 'patina', which given their 30+ years age is quite fitting, so please understand that these are not modern recording studio quality. We're currently leaving the tracks open for streaming so you can hear what you are getting before buying!

Soundbite

 

Paul

Paul Mackie

Prior to and during the writing and production of this Album I was going through a period of dramatic change. I had embarked on a journey to address my inner and my external conflicts.


Pessimistic and jaded are words I have heard around me too often but I cant deny this. I needed to work out what I needed to do in order to regain my old silly self. Winter is coming was my start point.


Whilst I have expressed my feelings on how life seems in a western society I am also injecting a little direction or hope, possibly to help my journey as at the time I had not made the changes.

 

My start point on these lyrics was the lovely Tony Blair and his responses to the Iraq inquiry…” So walk with me and those who made this winter come will freeze”

I think Graeme started this one and we worked on it as a band. My favorite section is the marimba part in the middle.

Ronnie BrownWinter is coming.  The title might suggest the imminent arrival of festive cheer and merriment.  The winter referred to here is bleak, cold and ruinous. 

 

 

 

 

 


Lyrics

 

It makes no difference what we do

They kick and punch and then they sue

Just leave me here to struggle through

Won't deal with life the way they do

 

Society’s a business coup

Exhausting time and killing you 

I realise it should not be

This price for life is killing me

 

So walk with me

And those who made this winter come will freeze

 

An icy wind blows from the past

Are you astounded by the blast

We must consider what we've done

Now we pay for what's to come

 

The nights are long the shadow cast

Winter's settled in so fast

I realise its not for me

This price for life is killing me

 

This price for life is killing me

 

So walk with me

And those who made this winter come will freeze

 

It makes no difference what we do

They kick and punch and then they sue

Just leave me here to struggle through

Won't deal with life the way they do

 

This price for life is killing me

So walk with me

And those who made this winter come will freeze
