about

This track was a long time in the making. I recorded most of it, way back, in 2011 - don't ask why...I had it in my mind that I should write a truckin' song. I persuaded Boz, Eos, and my old school friend Richard, to play on it, and for some reason, they did. Boz and Eos, are absolutely astonishing players, at the top of their game - in very different fields of music, and it was mind blowing to watch them. The weakest link on the track was me - well, my drumming. What it needed was Hal Blaine, what it got was me. Just before the pandemic, I had my friend, Mary Chain and Fountains of Wayne drummer, Brian Young to stay. He played on my last but one record, and he asked if I had any more tracks to work on - I played him this, and he loved it - even the American accent. Of course. the pandemic started, and we both had some time on our hands - He redid the drums, at his home in LA, and I put them in - like replacing a carpet without moving the furniture - but it worked. So, 2011 to 2020 - quite a long gestation period - some would say lazy - others will say You shouldn't have released it ever...but there you are. It's here, just in time for July the 4th - Independence Day...or if you live in the UK, Alcohol Dependence Day. Be careful out there.
