about

The 'Even Now' ep was originally released on a (very) short run of cds...about 50 I think...back in late 2002.

They all sold out quickly, but I didn't get round to making any more copies after that - I was too busy recording new songs for the next ep and I ran out of steam with promoting it.

All the sessions were recorded with a view to making one whole album eventually, but financial concerns meant that I had to make some $$ off the first half of the songs before I could do the next lot, so it ended up as two ep's.

*The second ep, 'Expert Witness', never actually got beyond the ruff demo stage though & didn't get released all (until now)*

I've taken the mixes directly from the master tapes, so it should sound better than ever...and if you get the whole thing you'll find 3 bonus demo tracks!

Track Name: Even Now
Right from the start
Slow, steady hand
When I drive you crazy
You lean into the bends.
Lights overhead
Playing hide and seek
Sweet illumination
Always out of reach.

And it's the simplest case
Of knowing when to wait & when to jump
You even said it yourself
It's a long way down
You could be living out dreams
Insurance schemes you need & you won't let go
You could be telling yourself this
Even now.

You're running late
I'm catching up
Sticking to the bed-sheets
You'll never make the bus.
Straight to my head
You're in my blood
Seven years of bad luck
Washed up in the flood.

And it's the simplest case
Of knowing when to wait & when to jump
You even said it yourself
It's a long way down
You could be living out dreams
Insurance schemes you need & you won't let go
You could be telling yourself this
Even now
Track Name: Sick Note
Almost got the stage fright
Nailed until the first night
I was sitting in the back row
I was getting tongue-tied

Gonna get a day-job
'Cos this is getting too hard
I'll be sitting reading magazines
Maybe kick my shoes off?

I hope that you can take the wheel
Before things get too serious
It doesn't matter what they say
'Cos they won't be expecting us
Today.

Gonna take the long road
Fighting off a bad cold
Busy playing solitaire
Wrote myself a sick note

The barefoot doctor called round
He opened up an old wound
He's stealing all my lemonade
He left me in a bad mood

I hope that you can take the wheel
Before things get too serious
It doesn't matter what they say
'Cos they won't be expecting us
Today.
No.
Track Name: Vegas Nerve
Cash in your chips
Brain to your lips
Come get your kicks

Vegas Nerve
They just know
It wakes the earth
And angels choke
On dirty words

Pray to your gods
Even them odds
Whisper just once & I'm testing...

Vega's Nerve
They just know
It wakes the earth
And angels choke
On dirty words

Rise when they sleep
Buried in deep
Can you still keep it up?

Vagus Nerve
They just know
It wakes the earth
And angels choke
On dirty words

Cash in your chips
Brain to your lips
Come get your kicks

Vegas Nerve
They just know
It wakes the earth
And angels choke
On dirty words.
Track Name: The Getaway
Where are you now?
Your time has come
And you don't have anything else in your life
To call your own
So what are you waiting for?

Colour me in with pens & paint
It's all coming back to me
I'll be the one you love to hate
But it doesn't come naturally
Here in the presence of the past
I make my getaway.

Rattle your chains & wave your flags
It just brings out the best in me
I was afraid, but now I'm glad
It has this effect on me
Year after year I could have spent
Until my getaway.

Thinking out loud, I raise my glass
And pray for a sailing wind
Up till today, you would have laughed
At me & my silly games
Just when I thought we'd missed our chance
We made our getaway

Long enough to stay.
Track Name: Do That Again
We're fixing him up with electrical tape
There's traces of blood on the ice
Freon flows through invisible veins
And a blue light flashes in time
It buzzes & moans & it's never alone
And it shivers your timbers
Down to the bone
For you

I got my Mickey Mouse socks
Spiders in my pocket
A horse-shoe hammer
With my name written on it
It left its mark
A calling-card frown on my fingernail

I don't know if I'll ever do that again.
I'm pretty sure that I'll do that again.

I'm breaking my fingers & burning my shoes
'Cos nobody here can decide
Who takes the biscuit & who gets to lose,
To poke theirself in the eye?
Maybe one day I'll learn how to compromise,
Take it or leave it till it's all the same with you.

Falling down the stairs
The man who wasn't there
At all.
Oh, the needle's in the red
He carries such a heavy load.
Be careful how you get down.

We're fixing it up with electrical tape
There's traces of blood on the ice
Freon flows through invisible veins
And a blue light flashes twice
It buzzes & moans & it's never alone
And it shivers your timbers
Down to the bone
For you.
