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

Again Ronnie at his best in my opinion. I must have recorded ten versions of this and Im not sure I got it the way I would have liked it but I totally loved to sing it, over and over and over..

 

Terrifyingly accurate to what was going on at the time in my life so again I identify with the story.


“When the dawn lights up the sky this dream will fade away” I hope not Ronnie

 

Ronnie

Ronnie BrownIn Cold Blood looks at choice, action and consequence.  All actions have consequences, good and bad.

The musical themes and the characters are related to Harvest Moon.

This is another of Ronnie’s songs and is the sequel to Harvest Moon.

 

For me it has a real ethereal feel, which is exactly how it should be. Rightly or wrongly we thought it might sound even more dreamy if Ronnie used a Rhodes piano instead of the original acoustic piano and he seemed happy to try it.

 Lyrics

 

One bite, bequeaths the night

Until the end of time

All at once the song of life fills this emptiness

Empty soul

Empty heart

 

Follow 

 

I will lead you down

Let me take your hand

 

In her dream he can feel

the song of life from the hedgerows

Sunlight and rainbow

Then out of her bed and

Into the night

The human sea

The blood, the light

Nothing’s the same everything has changed

 

Let go

I will lead you down

Let me take your hand

Leave our worlds behind

We will sail on the river

Your domain of light

My eternal darkness

Whatever lies beyond will be ours

 

While she sleeps they walk down to the river

Everything has changed

But when the dawn lights up the sky 

This dream will fade away

Eclectic Electric Lyrics

CREEP

 

You walk into the room with an air of self-importance,
Strut around like you own the place.
Handing out opinions like some king without the wisdom.
You think your it, but you’re just a waste of space.

I don’t like to judge a book by its cover

 

BUT YOU’RE A CREEP, YES A CREEP!

 

You don’t who you hurt, or who you might offend
Oblivious to the consequences of your words
Your mouth moves and words come out but you don’t see a thing
You look, but you a just a fool.

I don’t like to judge a book by its cover

 

BUT YOU’RE A CREEP, YES A CREEP!

 

Ascension

 

I have a question, you have no answer,
I don’t need a reason, why I'm pulling the anchor
Adrift on the water, in a boat on a sea
I don’t know where I’m going; I don’t know where I’ve been
Is this the beginning, or is it the end
Will I rise up, or will I descend

 

Ascension
OHH OHH OHH OHH!
Ascension

 

There’s a horizon, at the end of the sea
There’s someone out there, is it you or is it me
I'm walking the shore line, will take my hand?
Burning turning earth is churning, its time to ascend

 

Ascension
OHH OHH OHH OHH!
Ascension

 

No time for reflection, in the eye of the storm
I look in the mirror, is it time to move on
There’s an oasis, at the end of the line
There’s a dream just out of reach, is it yours or is it mine

 

Ascension
OHH OHH OHH OHH!
Ascension

 

 

One step on


I feel like a cog in a broken machine
I've been living my life in another’s dream
I've tried so hard to be a better man
I had a plan but the plan was a sham.
One step forward going on
Two steps back, what’s going wrong?
Three steps more, I'm losing my charm
Four more back, can you hear the alarm?

 

Down..I'm falling down
spinning round
but the wheels keep on turning
found... I've lost my crown
going underground.
but the years keep on turning

 

Look at the world through my open eyes
all I see is greed, all I hear are lies.
I don't heed what the rulers say
Money makes them happy and it's us who pays
I'll keep fighting to the end
I'll never give up; I'll never give in
The finish line is up ahead
If the wheels stay on and I don’t lose my head

 

Down..I'm falling down
I'm spinning round
and the wheels keep on turning
gone...I've lost the song
now I'm going to ground
but the wheels keep on turning

 

One step two steps three and four
five step on and nevermore
six and seven and eight and nine
ten is all I'm drawing a line.

 

 

In This Broken World

 

When I look into your eyes, there’s darkness in the fire. 
You wear a golden mask, but there's tears behind the smile.
There’s more to this than meets the eye, in a world of twisted things.
It’s not hard to see the reasons why, what is, and what should have been.

 

I want to trust you, but it’s so hard to do.
You'll never give it up; you'll never let me in.
Behind the cool facade, you’re tearing us apart.
Your heart is made if steel, and the pain is all too real.

 

We're beginners, saints and sinners,
in this, game of losers and winners.
But we must strive, to survive,
and make a difference, in this broken world.

 

So how can I love you dear, when you’re pushing me away?
Your unreachable, untouchable, but you’ll let me in one day

 

I want to trust you, but it’s so hard to do.
You'll never give it up; you'll never let me in.
Behind the cool façade, your heart is made if steel,
and the pain is all too real.

 

We're beginners, saints and sinners
in this, game of, losers and winners.
But we must strive, to survive,
and make a difference, in this broken world.

 

 

Left It Behind

 

Ah, see how the mighty can fall
Your vision stated, convictions and all
Once more left my senses beguiled
Drawn to the answer that hides in your soul

Oh such a precious way, though I left it 
I still dream of truth every night, though I left it


Paint the sky and truth has happened

Keeps burning its way through my mind
You’re in confusion at the wink of an eye
This simply just ain’t worth my while
I left it behind

Oh such a beautiful way to wave with your so called love
I still dream of truth every night, though I left it


Paint the sky and truth has happened


You’ve got to take this higher
You’ve go to kick this higher
And on and on, and on and on,

I don’t want to go it alone
