    I was unable to the other weekend... computer issues combined with a very pregnant wife makes it difficult to find the time. Let me try to get it to work in the next couple nights. I haven't forgotten about this, as going to the link 4 times a day is getting tiresome!

    This was recorded in Dingle for Other Voices.

    Not a full show, but about 6 tracks were done including "I want all my cake and eat it" which was posted by Fox.

    Cheers

    and here we have the official lyrics of "Gulls"

    This land belongs to the gulls
    And the gulls to their cry
    And their cry to the wind

    And the wind belongs to no-one
    The wind belongs to no-one

    I gave my breath to the song
    To the song, wasn't mine
    Neither of ship nor of sea
    Neither of glass nor of wine

    Leaving this ghost of a road
    I'm climbing hand over hand
    Toward that pinprick of light

    Toward the seed that God sowed
    Toward the seed that God sowed
    Toward the seed that God sowed
    Toward the seed that God sowed

    Oh Baby
    Try to recognise it in my mind
    Try to stamp it out before it happens
    Yeah I try to recognise it in my mind
    Try to stamp it out

    The writing's on, the writing's on
    The writing's on the wall
    The writing's on, the writing's on
    The writing's on the wall x 4

    This land belongs to the gulls
    And the gulls to their cry
    And their cry to the wind
    And their cry to the wind
    And their cry to the wind

    I'd say i have a feel for what's to come already. That was 100% atmospheric, as the man stated.
    Not. Bad. At. All.

    I'd say that was one of his best instrumental parts he ever recorded, towards the second half. Great sonic qualities and buzz tied in with the wonky muddy piano.
