This is an album of spoken word, poetry, vignettes, whatever you like to call it. There are instrumental pieces too, and each spoken track is set to music of one kind or another.
NSFW! Some of the spoken word content of this release is of an adult nature, and is not suitable for children or tiresome reactionaries from a bygone era. So I coundn't advise you play it at work – even to yourself in case the headphone cable suddenly pops out of its own accord and those within earshot are forever wronged on my frank syllables.
This was released momentarily in August 2015, but I withdrew it days after I released it for reasons that seem silly to me now. I was uneasy with the sound of my own voice, I was too concerned with how I thought my music 'should' sound and this release somehow 'didn't fit'. Stupid really, I wasn't brave enough I think.
All of the original music has been replaced and some vocal-free tracks have been added. Only the words remain and even some of those have changed slightly as listening almost two years later to the vocal recordings with a 2017 head on made me laugh out loud in parts.
