Folk-Spectacular Sunrise

This song is not in a battle


Tea and biscuits for the soul


I've been checking out the site and I've come to the conclusion that it must have started out as a 'guitar' based music site and that recently more and more 'techie' stuff has been posted.

Quite a natural occurrence seeing as were all siting behind these PERSONAL Computers that can, these day even make the Wizard of Oz look like a toy train operator.

As all my song posting till now have been 'mechanical' I've decided to post some of my earlier stuff from before I sold my soul to Bill Gates.

This is 'Spectacular Sunrise', Lyrics and Vocals by yours truly, music by a wizard called Jim Maguire, his latest music can be found at http://www.laliya.com

It's recorded in Jims front room in Leiden about 13 years ago!!!!! God I've had it.

Any way, what do you think?




BTW : Lyrics can be found at http://www.kingsonone.com/can-euon/caneuondau.htm

O yes, Happy New Year to all you Pagans out there

Lovely guitar playing....I really like the tonal quality of your voice too - reminds me a bit of Brian Ferry....and I like the lyrics....needs a better recording though.  Do it!!

great track, though indeed, the recording quality is far from good. somehow, with this type of music, it gives an authentic touch which full blown studio recordings often can't even match, so baby, it's alright now...

cheers, gonna check more of your work.

ReFlex : Thank you
Flyer : Do you make tea in the microwave? strange! I use a kettle. My uncle pours his tea from a height, he says that the air makes it taste better.
 JimK : Thank ye kindly master of the realm. BTW I love 'my loves' in Nakedtoes4mes album, its just simply such a beautiful picture.
To the 'Do Its' spoon and Devo, I'd LOVE to re-record most of these songs but Jim the guitarist is now in Oz and I cant get hold of him 
I'm not really an instrument player or a musician, I make music but it is not always what it should be.
O spoon thank you so much for the Brian Ferry ref, I'm ok with that , I think Brian Ferry is cool.
And PX : If I could be able to put into words what kind of significance the song "Its all right now" has/had in my life I'd be a very rich man. Suffice to say, that bit is inspiration enough for me. Thank you.

puts me in mind of nick drake.
even your accent at points hints at an englishness which wouldnt normally be associated with a dutch man. the mandolin is quite nice, reminds me of the dubliners, tour a loaur a lally touar a loaur a lie! not what i expected from you at all, obviously a man of many talents begorrah!

A! my wonderful Irish friend.

I'm not talking about you kmeroddy.

Jim Maguire the guitarist : an Irishman away from home
Your singer and lyric writer : a Cymro also away from home

Do you know what a Cymro is? Holy Head and all that!
Still not? Ok I'm the same nationality as St Patrick and the Edge. (good name for a band)

The mandolin player was an Englishman.

If kmeroddy means something, I'd love to know what because I think it's a beautiful word.

Doe : we had a 4-track a Tascam I think and one microphone and recorded it the front room, I might have been in the bathroom for this one, I cant remember. And that's it.

I believe I can sing and Jim is an amazing guitarist so I think that has a lot to do with it.
