  • Compact Disc (CD)

    The new album!! It's a lovely little cardboard number with a piece of round silver plastic inside that emits sweet sounding (even though digital) music when inserted into a laser equipped device.
    In other words it's a CD... with a fantastic sleeve by artist Jean-Baptiste Longuet with lyrics and liner notes to match.
    Oh...and then there's the music: written and recorded between Australia, France and the UK, these songs have been lovingly mixed (by Philippe Avril at the mythical Ferber Studios in Paris), mastered by Jim Demain at the equally mythical Yesmaster studios in Nashville USA.
    We humbly present the result of years of work involving many skilled hands.

    Includes unlimited streaming of I died of boredom & came back as me via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

  • Record/Vinyl

    The new album!! It's a piece of top quality cardboard with a large circular (180g heavy) vinyl inside that emits sweet sounding (good old-fashioned) analogue music when tickled gently with a needle.
    In other words it's a record... with an absolutely fantastic sleeve by artist Jean-Baptiste Longuet, an inner sleeve with even more beautiful artwork plus photography by Geoff Pe. Full lyrics and liner notes included.
    Oh...and then there's the music: written and recorded between Australia, France and the UK, these songs have been lovingly mixed (by Philippe Avril at the mythical Ferber Studios in Paris), mastered (by Jim Demain at the equally mythical Yesmaster studios in Nashville USA) and finally painstakingly etched onto vinyl at Parélie Paris (what a beautifully crazy process...)
    We humbly present the result of years of work involving many skilled hands.

    Includes unlimited streaming of I died of boredom & came back as me via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

lyrics

Everything is better than before

Everything is better than before
The sky turned round & blew us into town
The evidence was thicker on the ground
Where the Watsons paled and the Sherlocks failed
We soon found...

That everything was better than before
The wolves in tow were waiting at the door
But somehow they got easier to ignore
And a siren's call under southern skies can drown out...

...a truthful sound so we turned things down
and the answers grew from the ground
so we knelt & we took them in our hands

Everything is better than before
With increasingly relative in store
Among the winning numbers in the draw
Was the priceless haul of a Bogart Bacall & above all...

…a truthful sound so we turned things down

Everything is better than before
I don't remember getting here at all
One moment I was lost then not at all
But there must have been, in a place somewhere in between

…a truthful sound

Everything I better than before - oh so you say
Everything is better than before - I don't see it that way
Everything is better than before - oh so you say
