about

Back in July 2009 I was chatting with my good friend and mentor Matt Stevens when I mentioned that I had an idea to make a proper vinyl record. Matt agreed this was a pretty cool idea and suggested I asked people to prepay for the album to make it affordable.

So The Vinyl Project was born.

In 2011, thanks to a generous donation by the amazing Mike Taylor and a happy band of others, I had made enough to go into the studio and to record the album. So on the afternoon of 4th March 2011, 18 months later, I and a few friends Drew Harris, The Real Raj, Justin & Jamie Wayne, Matt Stevens and my wife Debs all turned up at the wonderful Livingstone studios in North London and I recorded this album. It was all recorded live in the studio by the fantastic Kevin Feazey who did a marvellous job not only on the day but also later when he mastered the album.

So fast forward to 2012, the pre payments have been coming in dribs and drabs, I could see that it was going to take years until I would have enough to press the proper vinyl that the name of the project suggests so I made a decision. I would produce the Vinyl Project as a Vinyl CD and here it is.

It’s not the vinyl that I had been dreaming of but it is still an album that I am very proud of.

THE PHYSICAL VERSION OF THIS ALBUM HAS NOW SOLD OUT.

You can still download the album on a pay what you want basis.

Thanks

released 23 August 2012

Apart from the people I have already mentioned I would like to thank Sam Scarrott, Mirjana Tann, Lisa Von-Schneidau, Janice Howe, Ryan Casey, Adrian Lightly, Tracy Chapman, Andrew Butcher, Corinne Mackenzie, Sigurdor Gudmundsson, Debbs Allanson, Sarah L Boyd, Dave from UK Surfcams, Steve Morton, Xan Phillips, Matt Kassell, Ian Cree, Michael Lamb, Kate Laine-Turner, Linda Mills, Marilyn Madsen and Hannah Lincecum not only for prepaying for a product that didn’t even exist at the time but also for their support, encouragement and patience. Without them, there would be no Vinyl Project.

He don’t eat no flesh
He ran out from the city
He never going back

He don’t need no god to protect him
He never going to die

Does it make you feel good

He knows where his love lies
He’s got all his women his women all around him
He’s never getting old

Track Name: 3am
3 am

Its 3 am and your not home
Gonna pack my bags I’m gone
You'll see my destination written in a magazine
Its 3 am rains coming down
Got the water on the ground
Beneath my feet as I walk calmly out of town

Its 3 am the stars are out
I hear the taxi drivers shout
I check my phone, I got my keys and a little cash
The streets are cold and Im so alone
My head is heavy, I’m a little stoned
I leave with nothing but my soul and some dignity

ch
Heaven take me you’ll never break me
Heaven take me
Heaven take me you’ll never break me
Heaven take me

Had the good times and you threw them all away
You just don’t even care
Times a wasting but times a fool
I’m never going back, never going back there

Its 3 am and your not home
Gonna pack my bags I’m gone
You'll see my destination written in a magazine
Its 3 am and your not home
Heard my message on he phone
That’s the last time you you’ll hear from me
ch
Heaven take me you’ll never break me
Heaven take me
Heaven take me you’ll never break me
Heaven take me
Heaven, heaven, heaven a little bit of heaven
Heaven, heaven, heaven a little bit of heaven

It’s 3 am an no ones home

Track Name: How Do You Sleep
How do you sleep


All on my own the long drive home is all I get
the tight lipped smile but all the while I know the truth
the teary eye the long goodbye I yearn to stay
the whispered word you never heard not now not then


how do you sleep how do you sleep at night
don’t you know that I’m the one who loves you
how do you sleep it makes me weep at the thought of you
watching while my heart breaks

how do you sleep how do you sleep at night
don’t you know that I’m the one who loves you
how do you sleep it makes me weep at the thought of you
watching while my heart breaks


it’s come to this the painful kiss the best I get
the passion strong it lingers on it lingers on
the wound so deep but it will keep I wear it well
a loving touch but not as such it makes me die


how do you sleep how do you sleep at night
don’t you know that I’m the one who loves you
how do you sleep it makes me weep at the thought of you
watching while my heart breaks

how do you sleep how do you sleep at night
don’t you know that I’m the one who loves you
how do you sleep it makes me weep at the thought of you
watching while my heart breaks

Track Name: Don't Make Me Wait
Don't make me wait

You wanted me more
I wasn't sure
I stood at your gate
you made me wait

there's no time for promises
I've heard them all before
you saidthat your leaving
well over there's the door

We did this before
evened the score
I, I realy tried
but you said I'd lied

there's no time for promises
I've heard them all before
you say that your leaving
well over there's the door
ch
Don't make me wait,
Don't make me wait,
Don't make me wait,
Don't make me wait

there's no time for promises
I've heard them all before
you say that your leaving
well over there's the door

You don't understand
I'm not your man
You don't want to cry
just say goodbye

there's no time for promises
I've heard them all before
you say that your leaving
well over there's the door

ch
Don't make me wait,
Don't make me wait,
Don't make me wait,
Don't make me wait,
Don't make me wait,
Don't make me wait,
Don't make me wait,

there's no time for promises
I've heard them all before
you say that your leaving
well over there's the door

Track Name: That Woman
That Woman

My woman never make me rich
My woman she kicks me in the ditch
My woman never keeps me warm
My woman never brings me calm
and that’s the kind of woma I’ve been dancing with
I’m gonna get my fill.

That woman never make you rich,
That woman leave you in the ditch,
That woman never bring you calm,
That woman gonna bring you harm

And thats the kinda women you been dancing
with I’m gonna get my fill

Your woman gonna make me rich,
your woman left you in the ditch,
Your woman always brings me calm,
Your woman never do me harm.

Track Name: Can't Get Happy
I just Can’t Get Happy

Never good at playing games
Its a failing of mine, I get caught every time
But right here now’s the thing
I look into your eyes and my heart starts to sing

Now I just can’t get happy without you
did you put a little spell on me
use some of that crazy voodoo
I just can’t get happy without you
cos I been around you all this time
and I know the crazy things that you do

Now they’re calling at my window pane
There’s a knock at my door
I check to make sure
I know it can’t be you
I crawl back into bed I don’t know what else to do

ch
I get sad when I’m alone
You make my house a happy home
When I’m alone in my bed
Id rather be with you instead
I just can’t smile without you

Can’t stop thinking ‘bout you babe
In my mind when I sleep
I’ve fallen in deep
So just you help yourself
You’re all I ever wanted, I don’t need no one else

Now I just can’t get happy without you
did you put a little spell on me
use some of that crazy voodoo
I just can’t get happy without you
cos I been around you all this time
and I know the crazy things that you do

Track Name: One Night Stand (Glad You Came)
Glad you came

Hey girl isn’t it a shame,
you left in early morning
and you didn’t even leave your name,
plane Jane, too much cocaine,
your name is in the frame
and I’m realy glad you came.

chorus
One night stand looking for a man,
I didn’t understand ‘till you took me by the hand
You said “if you dont gamble then you just won’t win,
it aint a sin it gets you out of the mess your in


When we first met I gave you all I got,
you looked so hot
and baby you hit the spot,
all night long we’re fire and thunder
you left before I could take your number and your number
chorus

So when the lights go out and you don’t know what to do and you’ve been lying awake watching the moon walkin through your window, well nowdon’t hesitate
just make sure you catch her name before the doors shut on her train
chorus

She said”
I ‘aint looking for someone that I can Talk to”
“or wanto to get inside my head”
“or thinks they love and understand me”
“I need a man to do right in my bed”

I said
“I think I got the picture and I’ve been on that road before I say we get down to some good old fashioned loving, before you walk right out that door”
