ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This album is made up of new original songs and pieces recorded during 2008 - 2009 in our home in West Lothian, Scotland. The exception is “Rainy Friday” a remixed version of a track recorded and produced by Martin Freitag in Germany in 2005. “Rainbow fusion” was recorded here at home but by John Farrell ably aided by Fraser Drummond, it was also mixed by John. The tracks “Hidden Soul” and “Do what thou wilt” are remixes based around tracks previously released in 2005/2006. The music for the track “Garden of music” was written by Martin Freitag, the lyrics by Alison G. All other songs are Barclay/Graham.

The tracks “Air kisses” and “Pools” have appeared elsewhere credited to “Jules & Verne” and “the Delorean Sisters” respectively - it’s all just us.

All tracks were remixed and mastered using WavePad/Zoom desks with additions from Yamaha and Cubase systems. Final mixing was done on WavePad by Roughboys, April - June 2009.

Cover and concept: invisible graphics.

Summer memories in winter

The most commonly played card in the pack
Placed face down
Worn at the edges
And round

Constructing the end of the game
Celebrate the way we came
To be here in this adopted strangeness
Always unaware of the rush

The breeze that blew the years
Was just exhaled breath
And I sip and suck
On past times and curse what passed for luck

I took no time to even mention
The tired and unjust predestination
That colours all their chaotic thoughts
And bought us nothing

So we salute the rain
And the intermittent stimuli
That feeds a waking need
Evermore invisible

Some tunes and fragments
As we go
As our forces splinter
Some summer memories in winter.

Dr Kaye Debenham “Intermittent stimuli and the wounded believers” by J&V 1959. Taken from the introduction to the unpublished thesis “Watching from the edge - the observation of life, sporting events and the meaning of the inner workings of the nuclear family in 1950's Britain”.
