    We like making silly wee CDs. We should send you one!
    It will have 'History' and 'Hallam' and probably some other demos we currently like/want to give to people. It will have silly drawings and some stupid writing. ...and hopefully some music. We like to try making pop and our soda stream's broken. This is the next best thing. COMING TO A SUPERMARKET NEAR YOU!!!

Lets talk about history Talk about you and me And how we used to be I was a boy or so it’s told I was a girl or so it’s told Don’t believe a word you’re told Playing ring around the roses To gather up the stories that I’ve sold And I hope I find a true one Before the two of us get to old Now it’s just me and you, and I confess The boredom’s got me on my knees I’m sitting here dissecting Jaffa Cakes While your sense of humour sinks into the sea You’re always in the bedroom singing please, please, please While I am in the service station sniffing magic trees Sometimes I wish you’d get on a flight to Belize But you’d probably take with you my signed photo of John Cleese La, la, la, la…

I walked along the coastline Along the path of the sea My love he waited there for me He wore a green dress That went down to his knees I wore a shirt and tie only He spoke to me about the decline of masculinity Whilst I set about polishing his shoes And Then we waded out into the salty stinging water I said the sun or me you can only have one, choose And come and live in candlelight Where no-one can see you laugh or cry He says don’t you know, no-one cares anyway Blindfolded we don’t have to fight If we can’t see they never can blame us He says their guilt just makes them feel needed So I walk back along the rocks My love he stays there by the sea Shaving his legs on a piece of sharpened shell My foot slips in the black of night I tumble deep into the sea I will sleep there as he waits the kiss of dawn

about

A couple of songs recorded in Verden Studios, Edinburgh (by the seaside) funded by Creative Scotland.

NOTE: Even though it says 'Buy Album' above, you can download these songs FOR FREE. We wont mind. Honestly. Obviously we'd be very flattered if you decided to give us some money, but it's really not a requirement. We'd rather you had them. TAKE THEM!
