Track by Track:
01 – The Age Of Human Error –Inspired by a quote from Florence King, who complained that modern Americans were “asleep at the wheel” and “living in the age of human error”. But who says the age of human error is such a bad thing?
02 – Don’t Want to Choose –For all who welcome the non-binary shades of grey and delight in eating their cake and having it too.
03 – A Falling Tree –Dedicated to the underground army of creative people who produce art not for fame, profit or even attention, but because it’s who they are and what they do.
04 – Yourself –Inspired by a number of selfless individuals I’ve known who will give their all for everyone and deserve permission to suit themselves more often.
05 – Let Go From The Get Go (Everybody Wants To Be Somebody) –A funk jam on the futility of trying too hard to please others.
06 – Idiot –A two-finger salute to bullies, homophobes, racists, bigots and all they represent.
07 – Macho Mouth –A solo guitar blues based on the old standard Mama Don’t Allow, inspired by an annoyingly tenacious gay stalker I once had.
08 – P.T.S.U.C. –The tale of an abused child.
09 – Life As A Tourist –Notes from a world of people searching for a life that will better co-operate with their understanding of How Things Should Be.
10 – The Happy Fool (Not Going To Fake Anymore) –Being culturally adventurous is all good and well, but might it be easier to just give up fighting and subscribe to all the bland comforts of the mainstream?
11 – Let Go From The Get Go (Sola Sulcus Remix) – Lest we forget. A groove and chorus remix/reprise.
BONUS TRACKS ON THE 2019 REMASTER EDITION:
12 – No Such Word As Impossible – A funk yarn inspired by a story I remembered from a school assembly, about an allegedly “wise man” who cut the word “impossible” out of his dictionary. This demo recording came in my “no fixed abode-a-wee” period around 2011-2014, when I was recording on a laptop wherever I happened to be.
13 – Rainbow Round (An Experiment) – also from the No Fixed Abode-a-wee period (specifically around 2013 for this one), this was basically a stress test to see what my little laptop and dynamic mic setup could cope with. The track features many, many layered and overlapping vocal parts, two complete multitracked drumkits, guitars, basses, synths and orchestral arrangements built up from individual midi instrument parts.
