about

I approached making the music on this tape as a sort-of collage. I had words that I had written in notebooks that were at a loose end, I had bits of unused music on old 4-track tapes, some samples and odds and sods on garageband. Those were the bricks that I just had to cement together with some new arrangements and extra parts which just seemed to write themselves. A lot of my equipment is rudimentary or half-broken but I tried to work to my limitations and I really enjoy this way of making things. I wanted to make these songs quickly and not be too precious about them.

Track Name: Moth on a Window
Take time to observe the burning deficit.
Investigate closely the smoldering hole.
Smell the glue and the plywood peeling away in hot smokes.
There are insects buzzing about your face, obscuring your view of the event.
Try to ignore them, or look at them with kindness as they're settling softly on your iris.

Moth on a window, moth on a window, moth on a window, i'm a moth on a window. I saw it in a dream so it must be true, we're both on windows me and you.

Don't listen to me, I don't know what I'm talking about,
I'm clambering through the rubble just like you.
The universe is buffering,
We're waiting for it too load as cradle the cols of loneliness.

These white-hot kernals of longing will eventually burst open leaving floral shapes that melt in the mouth.

It's not a proverb, it's a guess, it's all bollocks, it's the truth.
Track Name: Put a Penny in Sooty's Head
Put a penny in Sooty's head.
Embrace the potential of totemic silence.
Faces are just variations on a theme,
But I can't stop thinking about the shape of your nose.

Magic, magic, magic.

Put a penny in Sooty's head.
Realize the advantages of whispering.
I know that odors are just liberated particles,
But I can't stop thinking about the smell of your clothes.

Magic, magic, magic.

Put a penny in Sooty's head.
Help me out with your plastic wand.
Incisors are just tools for chewing,
But I can't stop thinking about licking your teeth.

Magic, magic, magic.

It was magic.

Entails

Garden snails
Musical scales
Heads or tails
Hay bails
This bread is stale
Curly cale
You're wan and pale
We're having a whale
Epic fail
Half-price sale
Fingernails
Yorkshire dales
Reading braile
Breadcrumb trail
To no avail
Blowing a gale
Hail stones hail
Limbs flail
Half an ale

Track Name: Temporary Blip
Stumbling between temperatures,
It looks tough but it's just a gravitized dust bubble.
Churning out the solid greens,
Doing a very slow jigsaw backwards.
Met wall-to-wall winners,
Ate my weight in chips.

This is just a temporary blip.

I couldn't believe how pleasing the reduction of logs could be,
Those lines were so fit.

This is just a temporary blip.

Satiated by vapors,
Cooing over candles,
Frosty rocks.
It's like my bones are shrinking,
Nature is noisy.
Endless fruitful love.
Small brushes tickle them all a lip.

This is just a temporary blip.

Wheyfaced weaklings kicking a tissue.
I fought my fate and i lost.
The balloons tumble and nozzles spray into it.

This is just a temporary blip.

Agitators at the bottom of the tanks.
Inflating those medieval playthings.
Bodycoats and scantabouts,
Stone Coats, stone dresses.
Like ploughed fields running wrist to hip

This is just a temporary blip.

Tendency to slouch
Chimney says "Peglars".
Don't trust the sensory world.
Green lichen, branches, green bricks.

This is just a temporary blip.
Track Name: Heavy Pebble
The earth is a heavy pebble.
The earth is just a heavy pebble.
The earth is such a heavy pebble.

Plastic bag
Plastic bag
The whole wide world in a plastic bag.

What does it mean?
What does it mean?
What does it mean?
I can't understand what it means.
