The CD version of the album comes in a special, hand numbered 86 page paperback book, featuring a foreword by top music journalist Danny Scott, all the lyrics, lots of pictures and behind the scenes information.
If you miss the vinyl days of comprehensive sleevenotes, this is for you!
Like Ian Dury fronting the Byrds. Like XTC covering Chas'n'Dave. Like Martin Newell joining Madness. Like skimming across a pond on a sunny day in an old fashioned rowing boat, dangling your fingers in the water and unexpectedly having one of them bitten off by something just below the surface.
Crafty powerpop and alternative rock song-stories for grown-ups. No songs about dancing, drugs or teenage angst here... You'll probably recognize people you know in the lyrics. Reassuringly accessible but with an edge like bitter chocolate.
No filler. No slow songs.
