about

An album that was less than easy in its conception due to the machinations of the record industry at the time that, paradoxically, had a profound and ultimately freeing effect on Martin’s approach to music making. It does contain some of his very finest songs in Spoke In The Wheel, We Are Storm and the title track that so evokes the feeling of the wanderer returning home.

‘It’s the sort of heart-warming collection that will leave listeners sighing in contentment’ – Music Week.

‘Salutation Road is the homecoming embrace you’d always hoped awaited you’ – Tim Peacock, Sounds, 2/6/90.

Track Name: Left us to burn
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 them up into a ball she did
See her waltzing in her middle aged heels
See her get on the blodd red ground
Starts the kindling in the poorest fields and..
Left us to burn

One day ships will never sail from hendon
And the big black God is under siege
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 get on the blodd red ground
Starts the kindling in the poorest fields and..
Left us to burn

There's no food without farms thats the weasel that you are
Build an arc for your kind, filled with pain and caviar
While you leave us to burn, from your safe and bloody shore
While you leave us to burn, being the weasel that you are
Left us to burn
