Some old and new recordings:
TRACK 'SLEEVE' NOTES:
"THE AUTOMATIC GNOME": This piece of music was commissioned by a shopping chain, to be played in those modern shopping centres (every town's got one), played in the background whilst announcements were made; a short piece of music which takes its name as a play on words from the name of one of the shops in the centre.
Further commissions always welcome!
Rob Cook Williams: lead guitar, all guitars, fretless bass.
'HIGHW(A)Y 483' was recorded live at a Festival in 2009 and is a manic, break - necked pace version with a ten piece band!
Rob Cook Williams: SLIDE VOCALS.
This self - penned blues is about the area around the Golden Lion Hotel at Llandysilio in Wales, a Georgian coaching inn which is situated near the busy A483 Manchester to Swansea road, the route being part of one of the main walking paths in Britain: the historic Offa's Dyke. The ancient earthwork defines the original border between Wales and England, and attracts people worldwide to go on walking holidays and stay at Rob's Hotel!
JOHN, I'M ONLY DANCING" is a David Bowie cover, the only cover version of a song on here (hope you like it, David)!
"NEVER KNOWN SUCH A WOMAN": I wrote and recorded this song when I was 19.
Rob Cook Williams: all vocals, backing vocals, lead guitar, all guitars, bass guitar.
Matt from 'Hollywood Beyond': keyboards.
