    It’s a remix/remaster/replayed compilation.
    There are ten tracks from “the brother who lived”, 4 tracks from “heroic blues” and 4 previously unreleased songs that were all recorded at either of those sessions. “Its like a souped up hot rodded version of the original songs, with some extra tracks that got lost along the way. We put the songs up on the blocks and re-tuned them, re-sang them, re-strung them , put more drums and percussion and vocals and keys and remixed all of them. Inserted ,bussed , sent, returned, compressed , buzzed, eq’d and coloured all the reverbs and delays and remastered it at the end. Its a new thing. “
    Standout tracks are Tracks 1 and 2 “the brother who lived” and “all our friends were stars” which were originally recorded with Greg Walker from Machine Translations, track 8, “are we goin’ too fast for love?” and track 11 “midnight to dawn”.
    It’s a pop collection with a sleek, dark and sinister , kinda Roxy thread running through it. An album for the times.

about

It’s a remix/remaster/replayed compilation.
There are ten tracks from “the brother who lived”, 4 tracks from “heroic blues” and 4 previously unreleased songs that were all recorded at either of those sessions. “Its like a souped up hot rodded version of the original songs, with some extra tracks that got lost along the way. We put the songs up on the blocks and re-tuned them, re-sang them, re-strung them , put more drums and percussion and vocals and keys and remixed all of them.

Standout tracks are Tracks 1 and 3 “the brother who lived” and “all our friends were stars” which were originally recorded with Greg Walker from Machine Translations, track 2, “are we goin’ too fast for love?” and track 11 “midnight to dawn”.
It’s a pop collection with a sleek, dark and sinister , kinda Roxy thread running through it. An album for
the times.

We put out an album called “the brother who lived” in 2003. It was, in many ways a new beginning for us and you don’t get many of those. Well, its hard to spot them. Clare Moore and myself prepared the songs for it just after we had done some gigs with the Moodists for the first time in 18 years or so. We were still fizzing from the experience. The previous record “heroic blues” had been billed as a “folk soul” set and it was. Acoustic strums and bouncing, light rhythms. I had a bunch of songs ready that I’d written in the same style, with some tight little licks played on a an acoustic and the vocal staying down , tightly boxed in by the chords . After the Moodists we took the same songs and played them in a more supersized manner, Flying V guitar amped up and Clare smashing the drums on songs like “Midnight to dawn” , “like a millionaire” and “the royal troll”. It felt great to be opening up the chest again and singing out.
There were also two ultra pop songs ( for us) that we cooked up with J Walker from Machine Translations. “The brother who lived” and “all our friends were stars”. We were re engaging with our own past and also the present, feeling comradeship with people around us in the music scene.

Then we realized we hadn’t made the album available again digitally. Via the internets. I started to listen to it and then went to open up the original recording sessions again. I heard my own voice trying to leap out of both albums. I wasn’t hitting it like I wanted to. Around the time of “Heroic Blues” I was harbouring a tenacious lung infection that would burst out between the time it was recorded and mixed. I was in poor shape and pretty shocked. It took a while for me to get a hold of my health again. That kind of total inner inflammation gets up a head of steam and takes time to power down. A couple of years later, while doing “the brother who lived” I was still coughing like a coal miner between takes of the songs we did with J Walker. I was firing on half cylinders but trying like crazy to bust into the present. When I listened to the tracks I wanted to sing them again, now that I’d gotten my body back in shape. So I did. And I added some drums and guitars and percussion and other textures. Just for the hell of it. Theres the whole album from “the brother who lived” as well as four tracks we recorded at the time but never released. There are also four tracks from “Heroic Blues” that I wanted to have another pass at with my now, better functioning pipes. Drums and guitars were added and remixing and remastering done. Its a new album, remastered, re-played, re-sung, re-strung. I’m calling it “super modified” . Its a hot rod of an album.

Track Name: are we goin' too fast for love?
how do we find each other?
how do we meet?
how can we tell the difference?
who is what and what is not?
that special person?
what’s so special?
are we goin' too fast for love?
so many films have been made
so many scenes have been played out
do we meet in a bar?
or look across the room at a party?
is it through a friend of yours or a friend of mine?
does it matter that we’ve danced before?
with other people
and we lost?
tried too hard and drove them away
are we goin' too fast for love?
will we be walkin' across a parkin' lot outside a supermarket that's closed?
will we get to talkin'?
wouldn’t you be scared?
how do we get to cross all this space between us?
how do we make the leap?
do we get drunk or take some drugs
so if things turn out not so good
we can say we weren’t ourselves
it was all a silly mistake
are we goin too fast for love?
Track Name: all our friends were stars
all our friends were stars
a scarf thrown just so
something in the past though we were so young
you'd skip out the front door and someone would be walking by
you'd get caught up in the slipstream so easily
I fell in with the wrong crowd of course , we were alright
there was nothing wrong, we knew we could feel each others moves
eyes
all our friends were stars all our friends were stars
smoking guns
the action had just happened
we were keeping our cool
we had the speed and the one eye
straight men on every corner for our punch lines
and we never missed we had the timing too
we'd ride into the sunset again and again
ride the whirlwind into oblivion
all our friends were stars all our friends were stars
we were on our way out on our way up
heading west of course, the way of the sun
she had her hair just so
he held a bottle like he was about to let go and let it crash to the floor
to be young and wasted was our goal and we kicked it without fail
we had all the questions, no one else had a mouth
we were all ears
we raced to the end before the song had finished
we knew where it would go next better than them
all our friends were stars
all our friends were stars
glamourous and doomed
so sad, so pale, so fast
so on her way back to her own planet
all our friends were stars all our friends were stars
blazing trails, putting out
we saw ourselves in the shop windows and changed course
things happened so fast
Track Name: like a millionaire
Lookin down on my song
from way up in the sky
hangin over head for a while
Just passin through
checkin out the scene one last time
movin around the pieces
movin between the moments so fast
carving up the country
cuttin through the corn
makin some new land where there were none before
Lookin down on my song
I know how this story ends
I'm makin the shape of my life
I think I'll stick around for a while
I was rich in time
everybody was
only I could see
there was no rush
we weren't goin anywhere
I was playin like a millionaire
lookin down on the field
seein the whole game played out just before anybody knows I'm gone
Track Name: a boy named epic
a boy named epic
took his own name
from a big book
its funny how your life
becomes a story
that you thought you were writin'
he lived by himself
but he kept his custard creams
under the sideboard
like a cat
he spent all his money
on records and magazines
he so wanted to be inside
to be inside that other world
and to be in the big room by himself
a boy named epic
he took his own name
from a big book
its funny how your life
becomes a story
that you thought you were writin'
Track Name: the royal troll
you can't fool me pal
I've seen you on a roll
eyes flamin, nostrils wider
ah there's the royal troll
yer like an iceberg now
9/10 submerged
eyes barely lookin over the surface
sittin in the sun
stayin up on deck for the moment
foolin everyone
foolin the world
whats happenin back there?
I dunno whether you're damaged now and were better before
or whether you were damaged then and alright now
its hard to get that bristlin', flamin' image outta my mind
ah, there's the royal troll
I see you in your business clothes
runnin' for high office
you can't fool me pal
I've seen you on a roll
eyes flamin, nostrils wider
ah there's the royal troll
Track Name: clingin' to the coast
clinging to the coast
holdin to the inner city
who knows what horrors lie in the west
the beach
the sand
the coast
the bay
the coffee
the tables on the footpath
the bars
the faces
the little shops
the markets
the lovely village
the vibe you read about
walkin everywhere
your reflection in the window
the excellent windows
funny chairs
old cars

out west they have factories
out west there is no water
out west it is dry
mornin sun in your eye
afternoon sun in your eye

clinging to the coast
holding to the inner city
who knows what horrors lie in the west
don’t go no further
don’t go inside
there is no water
you might never come back
they got hired guns
they got hangin judges
they got lawless streets
and roaming savage tribes
Track Name: I am your humble servant
its plain to see
what this situation needs
is someone whos been around the block
someone who knows his way around
someone whos been there
someone whos comin from the outskirts of town
I am your humble servant
what this situation needs
is a veteran from a strange land
a crank
someone with nothin to lose
nothin to prove
someone whos just stickin round for the hell of it
for dessert
someone whos sold up and bought into the end of the road
I am your humble servant
someone who can take the wheel
while hes lookin through his coat pocket all the time
someone whos worried about a certain tooth
what this situation needs is someone whos thinkin about dinner
or what they had for lunch
I am your humble servant
from the desert a prophet will come
ridin a golf buggy an' drinlkin white rum
someone whos been to the other side
someone whos got an idea where another side might be
Track Name: I'm seein' demons
I'm seein demons
an' I ain't the only one
I'm seein demons an' they're lookin back at me
they know
they know
they're movin' all together
wonderin' why I'm hangin' back so

you look out one night
see a bunch o' ham hocks'n'hog jowls
and their trotters are up on the table
upsettin' their glasses
I'm seein demons
an' I ain't the only one
I'm seein’ demons
an' they're lookin' back at me
they know
they know
they're movin' all together
wonderin' why I'm hangin' back so

my chinese doctor says "take this, it'll come out through you bowels"
"not sitting on top" he says for the seventeenth time and howls
he's seein' demons
an' he ain't the only one
he's seein demons an' they're lookin back at him
we know
we know
we're movin' all together
wonderin' why he's hangin' back so
Track Name: anchors aweigh
in the beginning
it was so hard to breathe
so hard to see
so hard to find some space
like the air was earth
packed tight
so many people
all around and above and below
anchors aweigh
then there was a time of great confusion in the world
I drifted, free from the earths drag
there were no borders
there was no night or day
there was no end in sight
there was only the vast and weightless pull
of the time around and ahead
anchors aweigh

there was that song of yours
somethin' about your eyes watchin' someone
well now it's so hard to hear
now those eyes are closed
the streets of london
the streets of perth
dog eared pages in a library book
collected on the fly
shovin' off from the shoreline
anchors aweigh
all the people there were strangers to me again
anchors aweigh
anchors aweigh
Track Name: midnight to dawn
midnight to dawn
what are those endless hours called
midnight to dawn
on a workin' day
people are actually listenin'
to their radios
hangin' on as hard as they can
to the song
to the voice
midnight to dawn
I don't wanna be but I am
midnight to dawn
seems to be my time
I love the morning
the fresh morning
I wish I could hold onto that morning feeling
midnight to dawn
stackin' the shelves
drivin' the kid to sleep
nowhere no time
midnight to dawn
people see things so clearly
they try to say it
they try to do it
I love the morning
the fresh morning
I wish I could hold onto that morning feeling
Track Name: twilight of a villain
you know I've seen you before
there was other people with other names
but they were all the same
I've seen you come and go
you're tryin things out
doin things for the first time
findin some space in the world
you're so far away from even your own face
its tough for me you know
I've been spinnin my wheels
hangin around in the same streets for too long
I should've moved on
theres always some young gun
whos makin his way through the crowd
I'm one of the people he can see
I'm waitin
what does an old villain do?
an old dog amongst the chickens
its no place to stay
but theres nowhere to go
who wants to know what I see now?
they want the old story again and again
you know I can lay that out
so what does an old villain do?
I don't want no trouble anymore
trouble is all I've got
trouble behind and all around
my eyes are goin
people think I don't see them
and they'e right
I just follow their lead
all I've got is the fear
you know I'm in a real tight spot
I live on a dead end street
theres only one thing that can happen now
I wonder if I'm gonna have a say in it?
I can't believe the crap I said, the things I've gotta live beyond
I tried some other routines but there was always
my young self queerin every scene
Track Name: I ain't natural
I ain't natural
it's just the way I am
I can't be cryin - so don't ask
you'll have to get that stuff from somewhere else
I know you're lookin
I know you're listenin
I know you're there
thats why I'm here
I ain't natural
its just the way I am
you know what people like me do
I got to find my way in there
I got to set up and do my stuff right there
in that space you're lookin at
I ain't natural
it's just the way I am
I ain't natural
Track Name: she looked at me from out of her eyes
back when I had all the time in the world
and infinite space to move in
I thought I had all the time in the world
and so many places to go
by the time I was able to realize
how little time there had been all along
it was all I could do to spare a moment to this idea
she looked at me from out of her eyes
I was lookin at you from the narrowest view I could find
I desperately wanted to be right
deep in my minds eye I knew I was wrong
but I closed my eyes and kept looking
she looked at me from out of her eyes
Track Name: my old gloves
my old gloves
leather and fur
sittin on the plastic box
they've been so good to me
they'll be good to someone else
dunno where I found them
probably good to someone else before that
my old gloves
they'll be good to me again
as long as I remember where they are
Track Name: while you dream, I live
seems I'm only awake
while you sleep
deep into your endless dream I fly
there no one dies
no one makes life
while you dream I live
while you dream I live
while you are awake
I must be asleep
for you to wake
I must dream you up into this world
while you dream I live
while you dream I live
Track Name: I don't know anything
I didn't know much but what I knew I really knew
upside , over, back to front
my mind was like a torch light in a pitch black room
but that light was hard, so hard
I could even see through it
I could see through my world to the other side
if I'd've met you then
you wouldn't be around now
I'd've slayed you where you stood
I knew everything
now, I don't have the juice
I don't have the concentration
I don't have the power
I don't know anythin'!
it's like I'm standin' in a floodlit stadium
I'm at the centre square
I know the names of the streets outside
and where they go
I know the last time I went to the end of those streets
I know I'll never get to the end again in a long while
I know
I don't know anythin'!
I don't know anythin'!
Track Name: commercial st east (starry)
It was a strange silent world
deep underwater
we moved in schools
silently turning this way and that
up and down the main drag
moving at least
we nodded and raised a finger
an eyebrow if required
all our friends were stars
we moved too quick for films
you see the recreations they're so pale
the kids on the roof
gettin drunk at the back of the tennis courts
chasin the horse floats at the trots
you had to do your jacket butons up or you'd get dragged away
look over there
see that one sad guy
all our friends were stars
everyone had a story
they carried around
