Description

Million Mile Ice Rink on CD

This album was made in a way that I had fantasised about for years. Here's how it happened: I wrote 14 songs. I got together a band. We jammed them through and recorded them as a four-piece. I then messed about with those raw recordings, adding backings and getting various other people in, like violin players and girl vocalists, until the sound was rich and full. But the raw sound of the band is still there, (slight) imperfections and all. We recorded it in a friend's garden studio and it was very hot in there during the summer (2005) and I must have been in imprisoned for nearly two weeks adding all the little extra bits after the band had gone home! The title is from a lyric of a song that didn't make the cut. It went: 'My mind is like a skate skating on a million mile ice rink'. So it's a fast-cool-dangerous thrill-seekers sliding thing! Next we hired a local theatre and had a 'launch party' for it. Lots of people came and we even rented part of a hotel for an aftershow party! (Which was kind of low-key because we were all so tired and didn't finish tidying up the theatre until midnight!). Ah well. There are photos from this concert on my website as well as new songs free to download, (my latest is 'Yeah!' March 2008), a short film, art and tour dates. Anyway, this album is the same as my first ('A Sack Full of Heartbreak Rocks') in the sense that I wanted to experiment with variety in terms of sound and style and feel, while keeping the heart of the song as my focus. Most of it is fairly easy on the ears, but it isn't always an easy ride and can go to some strange and slippery places at times! Enjoy. Cheers.
