Alison - Elvis Costello

Oh it's so funny to be seeing you after so long, girl / And with the way you look I understand that you are not impressed / But I heard you let that little friend of mine take off your party dress / I'm not going to get too sentimental like those other sticky valentines / 'cause I don't know if you've been loving somebody / I only know it isn't mine / Alison, I know this world is killing you / Oh, Alison, my aim is true.

Well I see you've got a husband now / Did he leave your pretty fingers lying in the wedding cake? / You used to hold him right in your hand / I'll bet he took all he could take / Sometimes I wish that I could stop you from talking / when I hear the silly things that you say / I think somebody better put out the big light / cause I can't stand to see you this way.

Sleeping Beauty

Still waiting for my ship to come in / Still looking for the right kinda friend / There are things inside things that can't be denied / What am I waiting for / A sleeping beauty, so helpless / Unlock my fantasy / And while i slept / You came in / And gave to me your key oh your key / Things that we did again and again / Things that I thought would never never end / There are things inside things that can't be denied / What am I waiting for

Fire In Cairo - The Cure

The Cure have had a storied career encompassing a range of musical styles along the way.

Growing up as a 17 year old the "Boys Don't Cry" album was a major inspiration. My fledgling schoolboy cover band attempted 10:15 Saturday Night & Boys Don't Cry from this album as part of our 6 song set.  I'm not sure we did them justice but I think Robert Smith would have appreciated our earnestness and passion!

Killing an Arab and Fire In Cairo were the other two great songs on this album clearly inspired by Egypt and they were exotic destinations & images back then for a teenager (Pharaohs, Tutankhamen & Camels etc). I was particularly in love with the part of the song where Fire In Cairo is spelt out;

F-I-R-E-I-N-C-A-I-R-O
Then the heat disappears  And the mirage  Fades away 

This work is my interpretations of Cairo on fire and tries to capture a sense of fire with some hulking buildings in the background.

Fall on Me

There's a problem, feathers iron / Bargain buildings, weights and pullies / Feathers hit the ground before the weight can leave the air / Buy the sky and sell the sky and tell the sky and tell the sky

Fall on me (What is it up in the air for) (It's gonna fall)
Fall on me (If it's there for long) (It's gonna fall)
Fall on me (It's over it's over me)

There's the progress we have found / (When the rain) / A way to talk around the problem / (When the children reign) / Building towered foresight, isn't anything at all / (Keep your conscience in the dark) / (Melt the statues in the park) / Buy the sky and sell the sky and bleed the sky and tell the sky

The Man Comes Around

And I heard, as it were, the noise of thunder / One of the four beasts saying: "Come and see." And I saw / And behold, a white horse.

There's a man goin' 'round takin' names / An' he decides who to free and who to blame / Everybody won't be treated all the same / There'll be a golden ladder reaching down / When the man comes around / The hairs on your arm will stand up / At the terror in each sip and in each sup / For you partake of that last offered cup / Or disappear into the potter's ground / When the man comes around / Hear the trumpets, hear the pipers / One hundred million angels singin' / Multitudes are marching to the big kettle drum / Voices callin', voices cryin' / Some are born an' some are dyin' / It's Alpha's and Omega's Kingdom come / And the whirlwind is in the thorn tree / The virgins are all trimming their wicks / The whirlwind is in the thorn tree / It's hard for thee to kick against the pricks / Till Armageddon, no Shalam, no Shalom / Then the father hen will call his chickens home / The wise men will bow down before the throne / And at his feet they'll cast their golden crown / When the man comes around / And I heard, as it were, the noise of thunder.

Pictures of You

I've been looking so long at these pictures of you / That I almost believe that they're real / I've been living so long with my pictures of you / That I almost believe that the pictures are / All I can feel

Remembering / You standing quiet in the rain / As I ran to your heart to be near / And we kissed as the sky fell in / Holding you close / How I always held close in your fear / Remembering / You running soft through the night / You were bigger and brighter and whiter than snow / And screamed at the make-believe / Screamed at the sky / And you finally found all your courage / To let it all go

Blue Flower by Mazzy Star

Waitin' for a sign from you / Waitin' for a signal to change /Have you forgotten what your love can do? / Is this the end?

Walkin' through the city / Your boots are high-heeled and are shinin' bright / The sunlight sparklin' on the shaft of your knife / Flower in the morning rain / Dying in my hand / Was it all in vain?

Superstar in your own private movie / I wanted just a minor part / But I'm no fool / I know you're cool / I never really wanted your heart

Navigate - Band of Skulls

It was at the Austin City Limits music festival in 2012 that I discovered Band of Skulls.

We had a big Day 1 of the festival seeing The Wombats, Quiet Coral, The War on Drugs, Alabama Shakes, The Afghan Whigs, Florence & The Machine and the Black Keys, before heading off to the Continental Club to see Chuck Prophet (ex of Green on Red). What a massively enjoyable day!

Day 2 started slowly as we took in the sights and sounds, the wonderful Father John Misty, some soul and gospel before we headed over to see Band of Skulls. What happened next made the festival.

Rain. Plenty of it. All at once. Rain. Refreshing, liberating, festival rain. The stage flooded, the band were forced to evacuate, then start again and again, shortening an already short 1 hour set.

But I saw enough. It was epic. The rain made it even more so.  

The girls love Russell Marsden. The boys love Emma Richardson. Combining beautiful harmonies and slashing rock riffs, songs such as The Devil Takes Care of It's Own, Sweet Sour, Bruises, Wanderluster, You're not pretty but you got it going on (great lyric!), Lies - hang on I'm about to name every song on the album! - are brilliant tracks and formed the playlist for Summer 2012.

But the song that stands alone for me is Navigate.

Everybody's back in town / Give me the armour and let me prepare / It can be easy or difficult, to steer / The heart and breath stops death, cheats death / It's clear
Time and tide wait for no man / Slowly realise as fast as you can / Thought I saw a glimpse of how you were at five / Ain't it strange how these things take you by, surprise

We are drifting on a deep sea / And I can't navigate the stars like my father / Oh we're drifting out to sea / Into deep water / If we're scared it puts us under me  

Given how much I listened to this album I really needed to express it in a painting. Images of drifting on a deep sea, navigating by the stars, glimpses of a 5 year old were in my mind as I developed a blue-green lined sea with noughts & crosses as navigation metaphors.
Hope you enjoy!
