And I Wonder Why

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!

I was going through my marriage break up at the time we recorded this, It was extremely difficult and an emotional rollercoaster. I could see that this was hard for the guys to watch as I bounced around in the studio all in a mess but they were great and each had compassion and understanding, thanks chaps. The lyrics will explain the rest..

This is another song that I took to the band. My version had a more straight ahead rock verse but the chorus and middle eight are pretty much intact. Ronnie came up with the verse chords and again it all fell into place.

 

The track was quite rocky but Paul had a very definite idea for the feel of the lyrics so we had to calm down the rock aspect. Although this song is quite funky and up, the story behind the lyrics will always make me sad. I had a lot of fun experimenting with all the different guitar sounds on this one of which there are twelve.

Ronnie

Ronnie BrownAnd I wonder why, an apple falls down from the sky?  This particular apple took a lot of persuasion to make the trip down.  A strange hybrid, this song - I do hope the listeners like it.  A brick, a bar, a bolt, a cup....... 

 

 

 

 

 


Lyrics

 

Golden years…. bereft for me 

My pretty little angel

Please be strong and find some peace

Free your soul somehow 

 

There's a photograph at my best for you my love

So hold on to that moment will you

I'm feeling more as I found less 

Upon my fragile joy I rest

 

Oh oh I just can't breathe

Oh oh I can't breathe

 

This pain will fade and your heart will know

And you'll understand I had to go

 

Don't be sad I had to go

The silence is too strong I can't breathe

Your pain will fade and you will grow

When you flourish I'll feel you

 

Oh oh I just can't breathe

Oh oh I can't breathe

 

Oh oh
