This is a remaster of the original West Coast Sick Line album from 2012.

The overriding theme of ‘Kirsty’ was a pretty bleak one. A relationship had ended acrimoniously and I found myself staying in different places without settling or feeling at home in any. I didn’t want the album to be self indulgent, or even about me per se, but more a collection of tales that all end badly.

I had always coupled rather dark lyrics with upbeat melodies. I had been inactive for nearly five years and I was fascinated to know where I was at as a writer after such a long period. I had recorded ‘No Senor, lo siento’ as a test to see if I could get to grips with the software and without any idea of making an album at that point.

The bassline for what would be ‘No wife, no kids’ had been whirling around my head all week until in a fit of anger I scribbled the words down after a particularly bad day at work. I knew then I had a solid theme for an album and to compound that, the title popped in there too. I had used ‘Hope you all have nightmares, except Kirsty’ as a drunken status on Facebook in reference to a former work colleague I used to find intimidating. I now had a clear direction and real goal.
