about

A collection of new tracks put together for you to listen to while queueing up outside a shop you ignore the other 364 days of the year to buy an overpriced reissue of something by an established act on a major label in the name of independence.
Various articles which can be easily found highlighting the problem of pressing plants being unable to print up releases on indie labels due to being booked up with majors repressing collections of old b-sides on white vinyl.
This release comes ahead of another free release from me, a full length album called Glow Ghosts In Subspace coming out on the 14th of July (Net Label Day) on Marilyn Roxie's Vulpiano Records.Sandalphon will be coming out on Small Bear Records in Autumn, more details to follow.

Track Name: Let's Make Hate
You're a fragment of bone sticking out of my side
I cry when you laugh and I pray we soon die
I'm fragile and bitchy, yeah, but I'm no Richey
You say that it's love I just say that you're pissed
Don't kiss and tell whatever you've kissed
I call you my boymerang I throw you away
But you keep coming back

You say you'll die for me
Boy I just can't wait
Slowly, spitefully
Let's make hate

So you've grown a beard and you look out of place
How can I trust someone who can't trust their face
Surely you know that's no way to behave
How can I love a man who can't even shave
Let's make it obvious let's make it clearer
You're Michael Cera to my Michael Gira
Take it for granted both our riffs are stolen
But you're more James Hetfield and me I'm all Rowland

Babe it's your film I'm a cameo
And my walk-off part's going to steal the show

You say you'll die for me
Boy I just can't wait
Slowly, spitefully
Let's make hate
Track Name: Life In Sepia
And so we've seen the world like this in our darkest dreams
With no idea what this means
No we've no idea what it means
So I sigh and close my eyes now I'm living in sepia
The truth runs deeper with colour washed out
Whatever happened to the benefit of the doubt
Well push just came to shove the goodwill all ran out
And whatever happened to the life that we once knew
What happened to me will happen to you

The past is dead, just let it lie in peace
Leave me here alone with my memories
This means nothing anymore to me
Prefer my truths to be plainly spoken
My icons and heroes unbowed and unbroken
Now and then a real truth is spoken
But purely as a a token
Whatever happened to the benefit of the doubt
When it came down to it our goodwill all ran out
And whatever happened to the life that we once knew
What happened to me will happen to you too
Track Name: Lost In Cleansing Fire
You terrified the host
With constant talk of ghosts
But you really turned me on
When everyone had gone
And so consumed with lust
I dreamt of blood and rust
Futile and Christlike
You fled into the night
And I miss your smile
Your grace and wit and style
And I recall your name
And I recall.....
(And you can take the blame)
Am I seer or liar?
All lost in the cleansing fire
Track Name: When Clocks Start To Melt
Oh how they fantasise with fanzine smiles
Don't let youth go to waste
Then they pull the ladder up behind them with undue haste
And nothing I do now is original I'm living an homage
Nothing I make is fully mine, my life's work a collage
Walking on a knife's edge trying not to bleed
Looking at the colours dull and recede
Looking at the dullards do none of them read
Snail on a razor blade trying not to bleed
Looking at the colours dull and recede
Looking at the dullards do none of them read
Why not change the record it could change your life
Words can hurt mine cut like a knife
Change the record change your life
Snail on a razorblade trying not to bleed
In the absence there's nothing for me
When clocks melt I'll feel all you've felt
When clocks melt I'll feel all you've felt
Track Name: Never Learn
It's no secret I adore you
It's no secret I desire you
Though I am not the one
Your affection lingers on
I continue to admire you
Though a longing I'll confess to
I have no wish to possess you
For you are not an object
For anyone to collect, it would be in no one's interests
How I wish that I could forget you
But I know I'd just fall for you again
Seems that I never learn
Yeah it seems that I never learn

I guess I should've seen it coming
I should've known from the beginning
I should've known you'd run away from me
Too long had I been winning
It's a hollow victory what you've been doing to me
Now I'm on my knees d'you see
What you've been doing to me?

Don't talk when I'm not in the room
Don't gossip with your friends about me
Don't even talk to yourself
And stop stealing all my ideas
Writing them all down
And please stop saying I'm paranoid
That's all anyone says
How I wish that I could forget you
But I know I'd just fall for you again
Seems that I never learn
Yeah it seems that I never learn
