about

My best friend told me I was only allowed to wander off to Europe that summer if I found myself a project. This is that project.
Chris's studio is full of all sorts of weird and wonderful acoustic instruments from all over the world; it seemed obvious to go for these kinds of arrangements. My favourite part of the creation of these tracks has to be that, sort of inspired by Nikki Schuster and her Recycler films and needing harder sounds for the rockier tracks we "beach-combed" the area around the Funkhaus for bits of metal to use as percussion. We washed metal pipes and Chris formed them into a percussion instrument, which he then played like he was born to it. Not sure what he hit them with: could have been anything. He also miked up ladders and radiators.
Some of the sounds are vocals though. We trying to imitate a power chords with vocals, I tried to make a sound like a crab running away. Good Lord we did all sorts:)

"The uncanny voice of Julie anne McCambridge is a force of nature. Not so much the leaf-cutter ants and acorn weevils bit of nature. The big stuff. Lions. Wild boar. The mighty wildebeest. She is a powerful and innovative singer-songwriter who can floor and audience with a whisper and a holler. ... more

Track Name: Happiness
I hope you hurry up happiness it's been a long time
I hope you can remember my heart
I have had enough of this experiment, this department, address, let me go back to the start.
Track Name: Just Said No
He waited outside the house
To see who would come out
He waited outside the house
To see his best friend come out.
An he just said, "No!"
He just said, "No! No! No! No! No!"
Track Name: This Sweet Delusion
This sweet delusion, this sweet delusion is going to hurt you
This sweet delusion, this sweet delusion is going to hurt you
Track Name: Lazy Angel
I think I've got a lazy angel
He's not my ideal at all
I think I've got a lazy angel
He's on the wrong side after the fall

And I know that he drinks
because he lets me think about you

I am sure he's full of good intentions
I am sure he really tries his best
But he gets drunk and he is lazy
And that's when my head become a mess

And I am sure he was drunk
When he let me bump into you
Track Name: Reverse
Some days I am stuck in reverse, stuck in reverse
