Album Notes
Here we go...

1) * Q * - By naming it "Q" I intend to convey the symbol of the British obsession for queuing, that quickly descends into pandemonium; with jostling, pushing and shoving, queue-jumping and arguments, aggression and a distinct loss of any trace of personal responsibility that may have once existed...

In the age of automation and AI we even have the pleasure of queuing on the telephone: being forced into a waiting-game that we neither want or need: A waste of time that the undeveloped AI misuses, in its lacklustre fashion, sending us round in circles, talking to mindless machines that divert the call to other mindless machines, with the odd disconnection or 'dropped call' included. Q is the sound of the epitome of frustration.

Q now becomes musical; not just while-you-wait elevator-type music to placate the intended brainlessness of the senseless automation that will eventually and with certainty have you searching for a human to put things right and undo the damage and confusion that the AI has caused, but music to convey your mood at this infraction of dumbing-down existing inanity: -

2) * WTF * - You attempt to inject some light humour in an attempt to numb the mind-numbingness of the process, as you're transferred from pillar to post: everywhere but the right place.

WTF - Lyrics
Copyright Ice Recordings 2017 - All Rights Reserved.

The heat is on; the arrow’s gone, the dart flies.
A cupid strike has missed me by a mile.
The reign of the domain in which the heart lies;
Should be lead by the head in thoughtful style.

I’m sympathetic to the broken hearted:
To people who, at rather heavy cost;
Have come together partnered up, and parted.
They took the gamble; lived and loved and lost.

Say “I love you.”.
Say “This sucks!”.
Say “I’m hap-py”.
What the fuck?

The day is hot; the wind is not, the sun shines.
CDs and garments strewn across the floor.
The party was an overdose in motion;
That night was something like the night before.

An eagle lands on rubber bands in silence.
Fever, fever eats the ragged rock.
The rat-race runs on; running on in cycles.
The pace of life will give you such a shock!

Say “I love you.”.
Say “This sucks!”.
Say “I’m hap-py”.
What the fuck?

The wind is up the wind-up weather-maker.
A gale drives dark clouds across the scene.
The indigestions jesting starts to fester.
The air is full of flatulence and beans.

The studio is rocked by a rip-snorter;
Hum-dinging and a-minging from the source.
The shockwave blows the hat off the producer.
A juicer makes it juicier of course.

Say “I love you.”.
Say “This sucks!”.
Say “I’m hap-py”.
What the fuck?

Say “I love you.”.
Say “This sucks!”.
Say “I’m hap-py”.
What the fuck?

3) * Dubries of Old Star * - Try an instrumental remix of Sharron-Idol's original single * Old Star * to take your mind off things while you wait... I reserve the right to say "dubries": It's a middle-age thing. - I have that on authority from Miranda Hart.

When I originally wrote and composed the track, with lyrics, I was referring to myself as the " Old Star ": I didn't really get as far as "star" - but I got the "old" bit right anyway. - Seriously; I'm 53 in a month or so at time of writing. Like I was this spotty teenage tech geek who wanted to be a star - and then life happened - and here comes 53... But I'm in showbiz, and geekery too of course, for life. - So something resembling stardom might just happen at some point. - Stranger things have happened; like One Direction getting into the charts for instance. :)

...And how about a trip down Memory Lane?:-

4) * 39 Years Ago * - A musical representation of a journey back in time to the late 1970s.

(That was the era of my young days and of the first series of Blake's Seven; a low-budget sci-fi series produced by the BBC using the 4-bit computers the day, in a surprisingly futuristic-looking manner... Though every planet they visited did look like a disused chalk quarry. I watched the original showings on BBC1 as a teenager, and simply had to watch it all again on YouTube 39 years later. - All this has absolutely nothing to do with the track; but I thought I'd mention it anyway.)

Did that displace your mind from the tedium induced by the bungling artificial 'intelligence'? - Well guess what: It's only just begun:-

5) * Q2 *

"Please. - No more. - I confess!"

- Was that sheer frustration I heard at the end of the last track, or an appeal to some mythical divinity for release? Isn't it strange how people become willing to sacrifice their sanity for superstition and primitive indoctrinative mind-control as a last resort?

Did you enjoy that experience with the AI of the previous generation? - Or did it have you begging for someone to end the suffering?

Whatever the case; you've just experienced the inferience of AI: - You've just been subjected to the Q.
