  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    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 + Digital Album

    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

One-time Donny

So he looked on as they boarded the Eisenstein
The coming of age it was finally at hand
The banners were out for their season away in time
All winter they'd worked on their temporal plans

Donny was quiet as they shouted his name.
"Be seeing you ten years ago!"

Don't make a home in this frozen town
Pull out your teeth you're ready
Don't be a slave to the here and now
Don't be a one-time Donny

A one-time Donny, a one-time boy

His father's a younger man & visits him all the time
"If you're trying to embarrass me" he says "You're doing it well."
I won't understand you if I travel a thousand years hence
My father was time-appraised and his father as well."

But Donny's not open to blackmail or shame
No more than he was years ago

Don't make a home in this frozen town…

He's watched them all do their time and year after year return
With stories of days to come and now he's famous, it's true
His father's no longer comes & they wait for him after work
With T-shirts and books to sign. There's often a queue

Donny is quiet, he's thinking it through
Just like he did ten years ago

Don't make a home in this frozen town…
