about

Like Inside The Hurting, another guitar free album.

This is a concept work, mainly based around piano and synth. No guitar (except for the MIDI Guitar) and it ends with the completely drum-free title track, edited from 22 mins to 11.54. If I still had the 22-minute version, it would have been a bonus track! The original release included sleeve-notes containing the story behind the concept. To illustrate the concept further, a new .pdf has been created and is available as a bonus item to all those who buy the album.

The album tells the story of two star-crossed lovers (I know – what a cliché!) caught up in the aftermath of the second world war. In order for one to live, one had to die and this is basically that story set to some very sad and depressing music. As it is mostly piano based (don’t worry, there are plenty of bass, drums and synth parts to go around) it might come off as a bit like piano lessons you want to avoid! Stick with it, though; there is some good music on here and it sounds really great, too. It was all recorded to DAT in one pass.

Songs written and arranged between June and September 1994. Recorded live to DAT on 29th September 1994 using a Korg 01/Wfd, Tascam DA-20 DAT machine and an MG-510 MIDI Guitar.

Remastered between 27/03/2020 and 29/07/2020

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
I had 100 copies pressed on cassette (in two batches) and if you have one (or the first CD), drop me a line and claim your free upgrade!
