For Richie Haines - a great guy and a great inspiration. Recorded 2000 @ Dungeon Studios, Ascott, Whichford, Anna Dennis/Martin Williams - songs and stuff Richie Haines - recording/guitar/bass Mark Rolfe - guitar/keys Josie - cello on Complicated A fresh approach. A countryside studio. An analogue setup (just listen to that warm space). The multi-talented and endlessly amusing Richie Haines at the desk. A much more organic affair all round. Memories from the Star sessions? Sleeping over at the studio. Magical, crystal clear, ice cold winter’s night walks to the Norman Knight in Whichford. The gaslight glow of the heater. Saggy sofas, Sleeping bags. Katy’s Song, Secret Name. The first time we’d recorded with Mark Rolfe. Easy. Natural. And the beginning of a wonderful and rewarding friendship. Richie’s gone now, but we’ll always have the memories, the privilege of having known him and the beautiful music we made there. Thanks Richie. Hit I want a David Byrne suit An Elvis Presley mirror Then I could be commercial And then the world would love me I could learn to hate men Play guitar left handed Then I could be successful And never be forgotten I go to bed, then I dream all night I get up, and I fantasise I work all day, watch the world go by Tell myself, it's going to be alright I could be ill-mannered Smash up my life savings Cultivate a habit Then I'd be universal Go down to the crossroads Get a Britney haircut A celebrated lover Then I would be forever I go to bed, then I dream all night I get up, and I fantasise I work all day, watch the world go by Tell myself, it's going to be alright And in my head, where the stars align The air gets hot, when I play with fire I work all day, dream all night I tell myself, it's just a matter of time I go to bed, then I dream all night I get up, and I fantasise I work all day, watch the world go by Tell myself, it's going to be alright De de ndede..........
