about

I love vinyl records. Vinyl is the purest form of listening to an album. The fact that you have to look after it - that you have to work for it - makes it all the better for me. The artwork. The sound. Amazing.

The line "I've got hundreds of tunes 'til I sleep" came from me bastardizing a beautiful poem, "Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening", by Robert Frost:

"The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep".

lyrics

Is this how it goes?
Our digital age.
What’s the RPM?
What the Hell’s a tape?
Pause & record.
The arm of the deck to go down.
In another time
Before mp3s
We had 45s
Boxes of L.P.s
Crackle & spit
The vinyl spins ‘round & around.

The needle goes down.
Close my eyes.
Faraway.
You can’t stop progress.
I knew you wouldn’t stay.
I’ll keep what I’ve got
And randomly play.
I’ve got hundreds of tunes til I sleep.

The vinyl mix tape
Is a dying art.
It’s all drag & drop
Add to shopping cart.
Where is the soul?
It seems to have been compressed.
Bargain bucket joy
Or a free download?
Buy it online
Or walk down the road?
You’ve got the choice
The vinyl spins ‘round & around.

The needle goes down.
Close my eyes.
Faraway.
You can’t stop progress.
I knew you wouldn’t stay.
I’ll keep what I’ve got
And randomly play.
I’ve got hundreds of tunes til I sleep.
