ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
So Idol’s releasing again eh? – ‘More noise, then, to accompany the inharmonious cacophony of racket that the music industry of the 21st Century has become… Well no; not exactly: You see this isn’t just another random release flung out into the ether in the hope that someone listens to it, + the ‘simply-will-not-happen’ event of some music mogul accidentally hearing it and shouting “Sign her up –now!”. – It’s comforting to dream, but, seriously, things like that do not happen in real life. – Possibly there was a time when that happened once or twice (not to me), but that time is long gone.

Let’s stay within the bounds of possibility, rather than getting carried away on flights of fantasy: This is yet another release, one more creation out of the billions of releases already cluttering the catalogues; but it’s a stand-out release. – It’s waving a flag by means of this website. It’s screaming for consumption by your lug-holes because it was created by Sharron-Idol with patience, care, and a degree of personality-plus.

OK point taken: So why the picture - on the cover - of what appears to be an undersea scene, including the torpedo?
In truth it was very hard to decide upon an appropriate illustration for this album/EP – whatever; so I grabbed this image which I’d adapted from an original a while back, and, bearing in mind that track #2 is titled “Der Torpedo” – ‘The Torpedo’ when translated from German to English, I used it.

What’s with the German track titles?
It’s no big deal; they’re not all German. – I just wanted to be different, so I titled a few in German: –

Track # 2: Der Torpedo ‘The Torpedo’

Track # 3: KraftMusik ‘Power Music’

Track # 4: Machtspiel ‘Power play’

‘Listening to it now; and I’m becoming rather confused: Track #1 seems to start as a remake of track #1 on the 2013 album * On With The Show – The Album *.
I agree with that – Allow me to inceptualise a little further: –

The first track is, rather than a blast from the past, a full-circle journey from those early days of my initial album: Rather than a debut concert; this time it’s a review. – I can be a DJ. – In fact I was a radio DJ, and a bloody good one at that… This time it’s a kind of radio-show rather than a first-time performance – and in the second half of track #1 you hear some of the actual jingles I used on air.

– But I can make some sounds with anyone and anything – given enough time and the right incentive. In Der Torpedo (Track #2: So named because when the waveform was laid out right after mastering it looked exactly like a torpedo.) I become the source-DJ; merging with other DJs and collaborating to create a syncopated series of beats.

Then we go on to the real deal, with a sophisticated beat, reminiscent of Deutschlander beats
– Music with Teutonic power – in tracks #3 and #4.

You’ll find that tracks 5 & 6 are the blast from the past that I tried to avoid at the start of this release: When I produced my EP * Afterglare * I released movement 3 of the Karibean Coffee Karumba, (I deliberately misspelled it.) and I promised in the notes that I’d release all of the movements on a future release. – So now I’m living up to that promise.

Track #6 is a reworking of * Love *; a track I created in the style of Marc Bolan, which first appeared on the EP * Afterglare * and has appeared in a number of similar incarnations since.

LOVE
Lyrics by Sharron-Idol – written in May 2015

Do you think your love – oh do you think your love is like a dove?
Spreading out your wings - and things - and flying on the wings of love.
Oh do you think your love – oh do you think your love is like a dove?
Like a bird of peace - don’t cease, cos I can’t – I can’t get enough.

La – la la, la – la la la.
La - la la la. Lo-ove.

Do you think your hair, so fair, is there to make me want to care?
In the lofty heights - at nights. – You’re flying, up where eagles dare.
Warm me with your love – cos I just can’t get enough.
Burn me in your love – like a dove.

La – la la, la – la la la.
La - la la la. Lo-ove.

Do you think your song, so long, is sung to make me sing along?
With words that rhyme - to beat, so sweet. – A tune, unique, with lyrics strong.
The moon in the tune - on a Summer’s night in June.
Ev-er-y-bo-dy sing along.

Oh do you think your love – oh do you think your love is like a dove?
Spreading out your wings and things and flying on the wings of love.
Oh do you think your love – oh do you think your love is like a dove?
Like a bird of peace – increase, don’t cease, cos I can’t get enough.

La – la la, la – la la la.
La la la la. Lo-ove.
La – la la, la – la la la.
La la la la. Lo-ove.

Yes; I do happen to rather like that track, (I’m a Bolan fan.) and I recorded a number of versions of it. The one that appears on this EP was originally titled
* Love 89 (Album Version) *.
