Album Notes
14 songs from Edinburgh songwriter David Heavenor who is one of Radio Scotland's favourite artists especially on The Iain Anderson Show. (Broadcast Mon - Thurs each night as a showcase for songwriters both local and international.) The songs range from a ballad about a revenge killing (Bad Man's Pride) to a piece about Bobby Sands the Irish Republican who died from hunger strike in Long Kesh Prison. Glasgow's squinty bridge gets a mention in a beautiful love song about a girl (Carleen on the Phone) who brings the writer 'love and laughter' and 'truth with beauty' (I'd love to meet this girl!) but then this is tempered by numerous songs about lost love: (The Broken Appointment) which takes a Thomas Hardy poem as its inspiration and (Headlong) which is a quite brilliant lyrical treatment about the girl who can't see where her true love lies. The standout track is (Memory Bled Back), a voyage into existential angst 'the live butterfly stuck fast on a pin' this theme also covered in (The Blues They Call Tomorrow) where the singer can't face up to the truth that might free him.(The Shadow of Her Fear) is a poignant treatment of physical abuse in a relationship with the girl longing to escape with her new lover. (In Northern Towns Like These) is a song about childhood with lovely images conjured about a coastal town by one of Scotland's finest lyricist.
