ashamed I sent you flowers
as hours elastic
ripen into heavy neverending
rushing slow to catch you
through sadly quiet corridors
of early morning
if I could kill this silence
I would fill it up with all my love
uselessly a rosary is said
for now I love the dead more than the living
TIM SMITH / CARDIACS / SEA NYMPHS (Leader of the Starry Skies)
Back in 2010, friends and admirers of the late lamented genius Tim Smith, contributed covers of Tim's songs in order to raise funds for his treatment following a debilitating stroke. I was honoured to be involved and contributed the following. The middle section is a direct lift from Mr William D Drake's work on the original. Thanks to him. The album is currently available to stream and is also available on Heavy 180g Double Vinyl. Links here. Much more Tim / Cardiacs related stuff on Bandcamp, here.
My contribution was the song 'Shaping the River' by Sea Nymphs.
"A collaborative musical project, initiated by Stephen Carey (formerly of This Burning Effigy and Adoration) and involving a collection of guest musicians and vocalists; later joined by Tony Pettitt (formerly of Fields of the Nephilim, Rubicon and NFD)."
I co-wrote and sang three songs on their debut album as well as singing their cover of '(Remember) Walking In The Sand'.
Heaven's just an endless sky
alive with galaxies and universes
pulsing with electrons
10 to the power of almost 80
nothing takes my breath away more violently than the rapture of revelation
nothing makes my heart beat
like the beauty of science

It was 1999 and we were on fire. The combination of music computer software and the internet had just made collaboration a piece of gateau. The Jules et Jim project was hatched. We recorded, we remixed, we released.
We forgot about it. Then we remembered.
As a celebration, we present the original tracks, the remixes and some unreleased material.

It can be found on iTunesand Amazon. Below is The Mission's appearance on the OGWT. The song is Severina. I'm on backing vocals and Tim Bricheno is on guest guitar.

The album is available here.
a star in the heart of darkness
build a bridge over ice cold oceans
to tell you how I'm feeling
but Her Royal Majesty won't let me
you pilot her war plane
cut love dead with an emailed Stingray
this is how I'm feeling
when tomorrow's trash
is yesterday's treasure
