  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    This album celebrates 20 years of playing their fusion of psychedelic space rock and proto-punk, with flourishes of folk, americana, prog, dub, ambient and alt- rock at gigs and festivals around the UK. The album is a collection from those early days when the band emerged from playing at various West London singer/songwriter nights such as The Acoustic Revolution, The Troubadour and The 12 Bar Club up to last year’s Kozfest and Blind Cat festivals.

    The CD also comes with a band family tree pull out poster that details the changes in the band over the years. The CD and poster artwork have been designed by Paul ‘Woodbine’ Woodwright, who has also incorporated the artwork from the late great album cover artist, Mark Reiser.

lyrics

700 Feet (BASE JUMPER)

1/
I’m standing at the top.
At the top of this tall building
Parachute, Parachute on my back
Feel the wind cooling my sweat on my forehead
Looking down, looking for a place to land.

Chorus:
Look down you know it really ain’t that far to go
Look down you know it really ain’t that far.
Look down you know it realty an’t that far to go
Look down with 700 feet to go.

2/
I’m looking down
Looking around at these city lights
Motor cars moving around like ants
One leap is all it really takes all it takes to go
I feel adrenaline start to flow.

Chorus:
Look down you know it really ain’t that far to go
Look down you know it really ain’t that far.
Look down you know it realty an’t that far to go
Look down with 700 feet to go.

3/
I’m at the top
Standing at the top of this tall building
Parachute, Parachute on my back
Jump down at ten meters per second, per second fall
Cord rip, feel the strings haul me back.

Chorus:
Look down you know it really ain’t that far to go
Look down you know it really ain’t that far.
Look down you know it realty an’t that far to go
Look down with 700 feet to go.

Watch me fall.
Watch me fall.
Watch me fall.
Watch me fall.
