    Live @ Glasgow Pavillion 1990
    A gem of a release entitled Live @ Glasgow Pavilion
    A brilliant gig still talked about to this day, somehow found its way into Martin’s hands after a gig a a few years back.
    We do know it was mixed and recorded by our sound man Mr Gerard Rolfe, whose company Coast to Coast hailed from Bradford.
    This is the Daintees in effortless swing, “an absolutely brilliant gig” were the words of our mastering engineer Mark Lough last week as he was busy mastering.
    The sound quality is outstanding with just one of two authentic crackles.

Heart Of The City Give me the heart of the city tonight I want the heart of the city tonight I want to catch this name in lights Be the main part of the city tonight, tonight… Show me a mug with a wristwatch as big as his hand Show me a mug with a wristwatch as big as his hand Once he’s had his use he’ll be a stepping stone To reach the heart of the city tonight Release this ball and chain, these streets are not the same Give me the heart of the city tonight (heart of the city) I want the heart of the city tonight (heart of the city Release this ball and chain, these streets are not the same Give me the heart of the city tonight (heart of the city) I want the heart of the city tonight (heart of the city Tonight, tonight

I can see 04:50
I Can See V1 I can see, my eyes are opening now I can see that you can’t bend a broken mind If only to feel the way the sun might feel As he shines over house or not, house or not V2 I shall cu the strings that bind me here And get up from my behind I shall rid this dark pool of misery And add up the pros and cons, pros and cons Chorus I can see clear, the moonlight man who carries me I trust I will face, stand against the fears of change V3 If only to feel the way child might feel To free the shattered mind To push ahead to higher things And let the daylight in Chorus

Left Us To Burn She gathered up the whole collection Paid the bailiffs with her purse she did Pit ponies and the down beat shelters Rolled us up into a ball she did See her waltzing in her middle aged heels See her feet on the blood red ground Starts us kindling in the poorest fields and… Left us to burn Left us to burn One day ships will never sail from Hendon And the big black God is under siege For she’s pissed on us a sea of petrol Flicked a spark into that breeze See her waltzing in her middle aged heels See her feet on the blood red ground Starts us kindling in the poorest fields and… Left us to burn She left us to burn There’s no food without farms, that’s the weasel that she was Built an ark for her kind, filled with pain and caviar While she left us to burn, from her safe and bloody shore While she left us to burn, being the weasel that she was She left us to burn Left us to burn

In The Heal Of The Night In the heal of the night when the blaze has blown In the heal of the night there was song unsung When the men of mind did the whine and song In the heal of the night there was song unsung On the Wetherby side by the Roman stone Four hundred lines keeled by lung In the douse of the light where the cold wind blowed In the heal of the night there was song unsung In the spirit of life we were taught to sing With the spirit of life we were taught to bring Not the worldly calls for they eat too much Let the demi-gods go, they are out of touch In the heal of the night when the blaze has blown In the heal of the night there was song unsung When the men of mind did whine and song In the heal of the night there was song unsung We were taught to hide we were taught to cry All the things that the real men despise In the douse of the light where the cold wind blowed In the heal of the night there was song unsung Young spirit in the old, old spirit in the young Young spirit in the old, old spirit in the young Look out for the young Look out for the young

Goodbye John 03:49
Goodbye John July it was a fruitless month Chibed molested and at the end of it a birthday Thespian narration can only give half And a rotten egg with spit on tithe other In an atmosphere of salt The human clock shook to the endowing of nature The splitting up of two towns, everything is chaotic And all that is real takes a back seat That picture tells a lie Just a s a song could hide a whim New pressure is added, inane facts come to the fore And the mind can but only distort Chorus Goodbye John, I hope your there to meet me when Im gone My old son, the grass is black we both reap the same yawn From the cabbage patch boy to the thud of a street car As it moves with the wan of the morning The pedantic light shift sends waves of fear over this solitary stone An inflection has taken place A recital of thought An effortless sketch of a child like view Of what appears to be true I hear singing again An erection starts And the then the dawn, once again Chorus

Spoke In The Wheel Isn’t bald isn’t bruising Has its flaws, it has it’s uses It is not the rain, It is like the day It’s more like a little spoke in the wheel Doesn’t con though it muses Neither fawn neither aged It is not the Lord Though it shuns the fall Its more like a little spoke in the wheel Fall, wintorm, ire raise Fall, wintorm, ire raise Has its cause, it has its face It doesn’t cost to embrace It doesn’t mind the rain, it is like the day But it’s more like a little spoke in the wheel Neither wired nor invalid Cannot be made could not be harassed It doesn’t rhyme with thumb And it never sings the blues It’s more like a little spoke in the wheel See it pawned see it vacant Neither fawn, neither aged It is not the Lord Though it shuns the fall It’s more like a little spoke in the wheel

Me and Mathew In the greenhouse, my Grandfather and me! Sing little bird sing sing Sing little bird sing sing Sing little bird I love you Let the soul ooze from your bill Fill up both my lungs with oxygen Fill up both my lungs with oxygen So I can breathe in a new day Fill up both my lungs with oxygen Share with me your honey buzzing bee Share with me your honey buzzing bee Share me your honey don’t you sting me At least until another year, buzzing buzzing bee Tell me your tale old man The tale of long long ago Of all the beauty you have witnessed Tell me that tale before you go Speak of your life old man Speak of your life Grandfather Mathew Unfold your magic, sweet clasped leather palm For there lies your Baccy old man And pray make us merry Barley wine Pray make us merry Barley wine Pray make us merry allow us to sing Sing, sing sing sing In the summer of seventy three In the greenhouse, my Grandfather and me

We are storm 02:49
We Are Storm We are flawed we are Bound down see us Careless corpse see us… Steal the dawn We are storm We are storm See us born see us Wind down see us Fly low to our, blind goal We are storm We are storm Many oaths that are Bound down they are Blind mistruths they are Threats to who, they inform We applaud in our Safe score see us Careless corpse see us… Wind down We are storm We are storm We are flawed we are Bound down see us Careless corpse see us… Wind down We are storm We are storm

Endurance 03:08
Endurance She tries to walk and free her heart The weather stalls the angry march As if a friend… Her giving hands can give no more How can she bear this heavy load Such a cross to bear… And just before she throws it all The gift for life within her calls Its holy call… But if this road is for endurance If endurance means a son If endurance means a marriage Then the pain is fun, purely fun His forearms tend his crying head Echoing leaving things and yells Lonely yells… If this was this and that was that The sobbing eases as he stands Such a lonely stand… And just before he blows it all The gift for life within him calls Its holy call… But if this road is for endurance If endurance means a son If endurance means a marriage The pain is fun, purely fun

Nancy 03:18
Nancy Nancy, I thought that you meant it I have wasted my hope, lord I wish I’d never been born The truth is, I am utterly choked Debauched deaf and lost, and vexed as a cat I have raised you, since you were a little girl Now you leave me lost, breathless and grey How can you, act so numb Blinkered and huffed, and as cold as the mire Nancy, how can you love When you spit in my face, my wayfaring one Nancy, I thought that you meant it I have wasted my hope, lord I wish I’d never been born

Wholly humble heart V1 Every man must have his castle, and feel a hand caress his nape Everybody needs a good friend, to give their secrets too I too am no exception, I too need to be loved I too desire a good friend, hopefully that is you Chorus There is no time to kiss a statue, someone who purely looks the part One who transcends onto another Wholly humble heart V2 I share a friend who is a gay boy, she tells me he is full of love Let Malcolm too be no acceptation, I wish him someone to love For it takes a while to rekindle, no matter how many you manage to fool For the first bite makes the deepest teethmarks, those wounds take a pretty long time to heel Chorus There is no time to kiss a statue, someone who purely looks the part One who transcends onto another Wholly humble heart

Salutation Road Tell Belle I got a ticket, I’m proud I’m getting with it Tell Belle I got a ticket home Too many nights get ya bumping and ya grinding Lord lead me down Salutation Road Belle, I got the first train home Salutation Road, I got the first train home Salutation Road, I got the first train Too many nights get ya bumping and ya grinding Lord lead me down Salutation Road Belle, I got the first train home Moon-howl home coming hungry Moon-howl home coming hungry Moon-howl homeward point me home Lead me N.E. where the ships are Lead me North East when the ships are home Lord, when the ships are home Tynemouth North Shields! Salutation Road, I got the first train home Salutation Road, I got the first train Too many nights get ya bumping and ya grinding Lord lead me down Salutation Road Belle, I got the first train Tell Belle I got the first train Tell Belle I… Got the first train home…
