'SuperSerene'

A beautiful track from the wonderful Theatre Of Falling Leaves album, a personal favourite of mine.. 8)

A track that would not be out of place on the epic The Alchemical Adventures Of Sailor Bill, imho.

Silent Glides My Armstrong Siddeley

I just keep coming back to this one .

Vehicular fetishism / emotional landscape : Classic car as metaphor for the life being lived .

"This is the untold story of how the monster was built, complete with bells-and-whistles and a little dash of guilt, heh"

....

Dooby dum-dum-dooby
Dooby dum dooby-dooby


8)

The main thing though that keeps me coming back to this track is the title and remembering those guitar chords that skip along . Carefree .

Very short, clocking in at 3:29 . :shock:

Tin Sings Bones .

This thing was blasting in my head before I woke up this morning as though I was listening full volume with headphones on . :shock: :lol: 8)

Glad it was within reach on my handy-dandy Bandcamp app so I could CONSCIOUSLY blast it through headphones .

The posters on your wall mark every fashion's rise and fall
Why try to keep the past alive
And though I know the time is almost 1984
It feels like 1965

Tingalary Man and the Scarlet Fever Kid keeps drifting into my conscious mind. The magic unusual time and cadence makes it sound somehow oriental. You can almost smell the incense.

no, I aint smokin' nothin'...

I may have explained this title previously, but have forgotten if or when. Anyway, here's the explanation....When I was a very young boy, not much out of my infancy, I contracted Scarlet Fever, a very serious disease back in the early '50s, which meant that I was hospitalised for a while. I had a very traumatic time in hospital, ISnapethprpe Hospital in Wakefield, I think,) and my parents could only visit me looking through a window into the hospital's isolation ward and would send gifts of chocolate, (Fry's 'Five Boys' chocolate bars ) and small toy games in which you had to manoeuvre small silver balls into holes in an illustration. When I eventually came home, prematurely as it happened due to my father storming into the ward and demanding my release, I was cosseted in my small bedroom at 28 Conistone Crescent, whose walls were duly draped with disinfectant soaked sheets to try and contain the disease. I was, I guess, slightly delerious with the ravages of the fever and remember, vividly, hallucinating a snowman walking around my bed. As the illness subsided, I was given a 'Tingleary', a tin toy musical box with a handle that, when turned, played a tinkling tune. I've never forgotten that.

It's amazing to me how such a lovely musical expression can evolve out of such a painful, unpleasant experience. It's just creative genius.
