about

Songwriter Gordon Glass is joined by Jon Poole (The Dowling Poole, Cardiacs) on guitar. Young singers Charlie Barbara and Ella Rae debut.

This is music stripped to the bone, or perhaps ripped wide open. More electronic this time. The voice is exposed. The soundscape is vast and sparsely populated. The guitar may weep, but more often it coaxes, energises and resolves to push on.

There's funk, dub and ethereal beauty poking through the clouds. Even a joyful spine tingling moment or two may await those ready to feel it... Headphones on, eyes shut, relax into it.

“Some exquisite moments... Poignant, thought-provoking, political" Tommok

Track Name: Pseudo Event
A pseudo event
A pseudo event for you
A bomb on a train
On this ship or that plane
Skyscrapers bite the dust

A pseudo event
A pseudo event for you
A network of caves and
Anthrax sent by mail
A tyrant's statue felled

Pseudo event team for hire
Spectacles to sell your every desire
Bugger the public's right to know
Our events team
we stage all the best shows

the boy in a balloon
the first man on the moon
bloodletting marathon

Track Name: Icons
These great icons
They're built to last
In concrete, steel and glass
They scrape the sky
Reflect the sun
Impress everyone

These great icons
They're built to last
Punctured, blown to dust
15 inch steels
Wider than men
Red hot, sheered and bent
These great i-cons

We were shocked
right to the core
As these icons hit the floor
Crushed like two croutons
Great icons built to last
On TV, torn apart

These great icons
They're built to last
In concrete, steel and glass
They scrape the sky
Reflect the sun
Impress everyone

We were shocked
right to the core
As these icons hit the floor
Crushed like two croutons
And we're utterly devoured
When two sink
within an hour
Crushed like two croutons
Crushed
Shocked right to the core

We were shocked right to the core
As these icons hit the floor
Crushed like two croutons
Great icons built to last
On TV, torn apart
Torn apart
These great icons
Track Name: $6bn
I once bet the earth
It cost me my job
six billion dollars

I would play with fire
You would live the lie
six billion dollar

La la la, la la la
La la
Love your Rolex
Love your Michael Douglas
Love your face cream
You loved the money
when I was raking
it in

Six billion dollar
La la la, la la la

Love your Rolex
Love your Michael Douglas
Love your face cream
You loved the money
Track Name: Jubilant
Dark out here
I'm far from home
Cold and lonely
I'm subaltern

Lone, dethroned
And jettisoned
Sacked and sanctioned
Without a phone

Allow me to find a safe home soon
And discover water
on the moon
away from clones
automatons
When I've saved you
I'll feel jubilant

Woohoo, woohoo
jubilant!
Woohoo, woohoo

Numb, lifeless
Each zone I've flown
Emoticons
So monotone

But what's this I see?
A fish filled sea
sun, soil, land and seeds
beckon me
Allow me to orbit
round your sun
You're fun loving,
young, jubilant
What's not to love
about your place
You rant and rave,
I feel jubilant

Woohoo, woohoo
jubilant!
Woohoo, woohoo
I feel
jubilant!
jubilant!
I feel
jubilant!
jubilant!
Woohoo, woohoo
Track Name: Christmas Armistice
Christmas Eve is here
See the festive cheer
Across the barbed wire
Not one shot's been fired

Let us toast those missed
Every hug, laughter, smile
is revived
by this sudden surprise
Christmas Armistice
We recall a kiss
Like sunshine to mist
It blew us away
So much warmth to savour

How the love we missed
Every hug, laughter, smile
is revived
by this sudden surprise
Christmas Armistice

Let Christmas reign
where all the poppies grow
Send love and joy
Let your emotions flow

Christmas Eve is here
See the festive cheer
Across the barbed wire
Not one shot's been fired

Let us toast those missed
Every hug, laughter, smile
is revived
by this sudden surprise
Christmas Armistice

Let Christmas reign
where all the poppies grow
Send love and joy
Let your emotions flow
Track Name: Middle East
There's a kind of man
will travel
we can train this man to lie
he can make men kill
and torture
bleed them dry

In the Middle East
we will create heat

There's a truck
full of explosives
and a trigger
in this phone
get a man to
drive to market
break some bones

There's a death squad
in this movie
called sectarian violence
we will bomb a mosque
and murder
They're incensed

In the Middle East
we will create heat
In the Middle East
we will drag our feet
From the Middle East
they'll be no retreat
Track Name: A&E
So
we fight
We shout
We cry
We long
To love
But learn
To buy

So
we rage
We punch
The sky
We long
To live
But learn
To bide time

In A&E
we have faith
To stitch back up
our wounds
In A&E
we have faith
So
the blood
Is real
It flows
The cut
Is deep
The wound
It grows

So
you stuck
You stoked
You froze
The bag
I slung
It cut your
big toe

In A&E
we have faith
To straighten
broken bones
In A&E
we have faith

In A&E
we have faith
To fix and
send us home
In A&E
we have faith
Track Name: Feeling
Such a good feeling

Early summer,
in love with life,
we're apart
yet connected
by the same sun,
moon and stars

You make me
want to dance,
turn me onto romance
we relax on the beach,
you see the kid in me
Love is simplicity

In love with life,
it's such a good feeling
In love with life,
nothing can bring us down
No frowns, no fear,
these tears in my eyes
are here cause I'm so happy

We are singing,
in love with life,
we'll go far

In love with life,
it's such a good feeling
In love with life,
nothing can bring us down
My friends
we're here to celebrate
the family we have become

In love with life,
it's such a good feeling
In love with life,
nothing can bring us down
No frowns, no fear,
these tears in my eyes
are here cause I'm so happy

In love with life,
it's such a good feeling
in love

In love with life,
it's such a good feeling
in love
Such a good feeling
Track Name: Rubble
Running to safety
from a home
broken to rubble,
burned and war torn
Seeking out shelter,
family
spurred on by hunger,
thirst & disease

From the rubble of homes
hit by foreign fighters
you lifted me,
lift me to safety

Travelled to London,
Westerly
Stuck by a tunnel,
can't swim this sea

From the rubble of homes
hit by foreign fighters
You lifted me,
lift me to safety

From the rubble of towns
hit by foreign fighters,
emerge a brave band
of survivors
Track Name: Forever
This love is forever
This time it's forever
Our love will forever
Heal each other

We will recall
A voice, so warm
Smile, a style, a dance
The gift that's laughter

This love is forever
This time it's forever
My happiness has hit an all time high

Asleep here beside you
I can't believe my
good luck
and I thank my lucky stars
And when you go
I know that
this was just the start
And when you leave
we know
that we won't be apart

This time it's forever
This love is forever
Call and it will stick around
This time it's forever
My happiness has hit an all time high

Asleep here beside you
I can't believe my good luck
and I thank my lucky stars
And when you go I know
that it's the love we need
And when you leave I trust
you still will trust in me

This time it's forever
This love is forever
Now the curtain
closes on me
This love is forever
Track Name: Mastermind
Why are you killing me, killing me, in the name of liberty?

What would I not confess,
what would I not just sign
if I'd been tied and
drowned 183 times?
I might just be
your Mastermind
What would I not pretend,
what would I not espouse
If I'd been tied and bound,
beaten and hung
upside down?

I might just be
your Mastermind
I might just be
your Mastermind

Why are you killing me, killing me,
in the name of liberty?

I might just be
your Mastermind!

Why are you killing me, killing me,
in the name of liberty?
