Album Notes

Songs For Your Neighbour is now only your starter pack....

So, things progress: lately we are getting asked, with increasing regularity, what we're all about.

'Your songs are all different. How're we supposed to fit you into one of these pigeonholes we've got here?' 'Who are your influences?' 'What's your story?' 'You're a bit like, ooh, I can't work it out...' Unfortunately the boxes and pigeonholes would appear to be full.

So we have planning permission pending on our own pigeonhole. What we're all about is songs; songs about stuff; stuff that happens whether we like it or not. We have always written them down, because they're there. Now we're recording them too and people seem to be liking them. Maybe it's because they're good; maybe it's because they're honest; maybe it's a bit of both; maybe it's something else entirely. Whatever it is, it doesn't matter much. Anybody's welcome along if they want to come and, whilst we'll go anywhere to play (you only have to ask), we won't be appearing in OK Magazine or on 'Please Look At Me, I'm A Celebrity' to try and convince you that we're important. We have some stuff to say and some songs to play, and we're just getting on with it. We hope you like them.

Songs For Your Neighbour is the debut album from Geist. Written by Dominic Hudson & John McDevitt, produced by Henry Sand and recorded at Cattleprod Studios in 2002/3.

'These vaguely acoustic stylings from British song writing duo Hudson & McDevitt exude real charm, evoking melancholy memories, tempered optimism and warm pints in cold country pubs. Standout track, For You is simply mesmerising. Pastoral Peaks.'
Chris Roberts, Uncut Magazine March 2003

'With chunky guitars, a violin and a mandolin on board, Geist's sound is as powerful as it is distinctive. This 41 minute long album is, quite simply, terrific. Lovers of the late, great Kirsty McColl, The Wonderstuff, Dylan, Neil Young, even The Pogues, Morrissey, The Dandy Warhols and The Beatles will find plenty to enjoy here, with not a filler track in sight. Irresistible opener That Was Then sets a folk pop tone with its jaunty pace, upfront fiddling and well-crafted structure. With fine mandolin flourishes, crunchy guitars, it must go down a storm live. The same goes for closing track Memory Lane, which packs a Stax-style rhythm, poppy guitars, and powerful vocals. In between are songs which showcase the band's maturity and talent, peaking with the wonderfully haunting and sombre For You; dreamy and mellow organ-backed Milk & Two Sugars; and the bustling big folk-come-rockabilly sounding Our Wonderful Joe'.
Richard Worley, Sussex Leader, Dec 2003

Sometimes little gems drop onto the VBM mat, which make the job worthwhile. One such gem is 'Songs For Your Neighbour'... There are few bands or individuals making music where the central consideration isn't either commercial or self-satisfying. There's a touch of Tom McCrae and a smattering of Dylanesque musical- landscaping, but overall it's impossible not to recognise Geist as living in a very wonderful world of their own. We here, @ VBM, will be watching Geist's future with a wondering eye... Wondering why they've yet to leave Travis, Coldplay and all the other seeming pretenders well and truly in their wake... Excellent stuff!
Mike Cobley, Virtual Brighton Magazine, 2003

A new album will be recorded sometime this year. In the meantime, enjoy.
