Previous projects from members of the line up have been played on the BBC 1 John Peel Show, 6 Music and Nick Luscombe's Late Junction on Radio 3.

Track Name: Shimmer In The Bay At Dawn
shimmer in the bay at dawn


come in late and sneak

hear the doorway creak

drunk on a beach

drunk on a beach


shimmer in the bay at dawn

shimmer in the bay at dawn

shimmer in the bay at dawn


play the weather report

a storm in every port

at best you’re blessed

at worst you’re cursed


shimmer in the bay at dawn

shimmer in the bay at dawn

shimmer in the bay at dawn


look along the coast

coffe and some toast

let’s keep it cheap

drunk on a beach


shimmer in the bay at dawn

shimmer in the bay at dawn

shimmer in the bay at dawn


they reversed their suicide

they never really wanted to die

just out of reach

drunk on a beach


shimmer in the bay at dawn

shimmer in the bay at dawn

shimmer in the bay at dawn
Track Name: Open Mic Night
all the rats who run through the beer garden

sing the "open mic night has arrived !"

gnawing bruschetta, tumbling tomatoes

the leaves fall like tedious verse..


there's a house guitar

that slips in and out of tune

play for a pint, play a set at the open mic night


all the dogs who run to exercise in beer gardens

know open mic night's arrived

will we rate it high ? checking out trip advisor

full of the heed we don't take…


have you felt small shame, like tripping on a paving stone ?

or hailing a bus that steams past you waiting ?

well then you'll know that open mic night has arrived


all the cats who sun their lazy fur in beer gardens

know open mic night has arrived

there's an anxious type, making that first foray and

earnest the swansong nicks off...
Track Name: (Do The) Nature Walk
to see the universe,

find a forest wilderness

do (do do do do)

the nature walk...


between every two trees,

lies a door to a new world

do (do do do do)

the nature walk...


in the deep green woods

going out is going in, and

going in is going out...


quiet with your thoughts

a call back to the wild

do (do do do do)

the nature walk...


the river flows through us

we are a part of her

do (do do do do)

the nature walk...

in the deep green woods

going out is going in, and

going in is going out...
Track Name: Time Capsule
when you find old photographs

look behind look around the back

did you find the time capsule?


when you see old films on tv

they inspire your memories

like a time capsule


on cobbled streets we meet

roaming roman roads...

the scent of cooking hits the nose


every hour on the hour

counting every chime

the bells they ring out time


fill the bottles up with wine

we'll drink a toast to every ghost

in the library who poured

their wisdom out...


their wisdom out in words

we'll drink a toast to every verse

to every struggle to be heard


no lo-fi no hi-fi, washed in the tide

no wi-fi they just left a time capsule


every hour on the hour

counting every chime

as the bells they ring out time


when you find old photographs

look behind look around the back

did you find the time capsule?
