  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Comes in a high quality digi-pack with cd sheath with fabulous artwork
    This Salutation Road 30th Anniversary album is of the highest quality and it features brothers Anth & Gaz Dunn playing with us for the first time in seven years.

    It was a joyful reunion at Beetroot Studios in Airdrie back in January 2020 with our drummer Shayne Fontayne and so many memories and laughs were shared. We'd always vowed to record this album more how we'd originally heard it. This is it, no brass, only a 4 piece band and an additional fiddle.

    I'm so proud of this re-recorded album, what a band! Their playing is mature and superb.

    This release is surely a must for Daintees fans new and old.

    Please do all you can to support all independent musicians trying to shine light into the darkness in these difficult times.The CDs will ship on or around the 10th July but anyone ordering a CD can download the album in digital format immediately!
    Cheers

    I was thrilled when renowned Sheffield artist Pete McKee agreed to do the cover for the Salutation Road 30th Anniversary album. So many people made contact once the artwork was revealed asking if it could be made available as a print so I asked our go-to graphic designer Kieran Fitzpatrick to work his magic. These have been printed on high quality 250gsm Silk and I'm really pleased with them. They'll look great framed although these obviously aren't included! The prints will be carefully rolled and posted in sturdy tubes and I've tried to keep the P&P charges as low as possible. There's no extra postal charge for anyone ordering more than one print.

    After my recent mishap with the lawnmower I'm struggling more with a pen than I am with a guitar but I've spent this afternoon signing prints which will go on a first come- first served basis!

    Thanks to everyone supporting myself and all the other independent musicians through these crazy times while we can't gig or set up our merch tables. It really is appreciated.

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

Long Hard Road It’s a long hard road With no bed to get down on But this naked blinding sun Is what keeps me up and moving on Friends and peace of mind Aren’t the easiest things to find But this naked blinding sun Is what helps me love my brother so But this long hard road It really keeps me up and moving on It really helps me love my brother so Take me to the sullen man, let me see him smile Take me to the sullen man, let me get him high But this long hard road It really helps me love my brother so Take me to the sullen man, let me see him smile Take me to the sullen man, let me get him high Long hard road, long hard road Long hard road, long hard road

Big North Lights Have you seen the northern lights Take you there for a penny my friend Have you seen the big north lights Take you there for a penny my friend Brighter than the New York light Kinder than the neon light yes Warmer than any London light yes Northern lights are humble lights my friend Hop on board and I’ll sail you up We’ll get there in an hour or so Bring a flask and a heavy coat We’ll get there before the dawn comes up Brighter than any neon lights Kinder than any London light Warmer than the New York lights Northern lights are humble lights my friend

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

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

Too Much In Love Too much in love Too much in love I must be… Too much, too much Too much in love I’m there to be took, there to be used All’s gone heady, I’m weak and no use Like a vestal virgin, in an old man’s shoes I must be, too much in love… Too much in love Too much in love I must be… Too much, too much Too much in love She was a child, child to me Half my age and as sweet as can be My heart went boom, could not stop I must be, too much in love…

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

We Are Storm 03:35
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 02:34
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

Morning Time 03:54
Morning Time Morning time morning time I’m sitting on the coach happy in the mind I’m leaving my folks and the cares behind Yes I’m independent I’m no child I’m gonna catch me the big north lights Those angry loathsome wuthering heights Dusk is coming and the coach is cold There’s frost on the window and the passengers old I’ll cadge me a ciggy off Rambling Joe Ah he’s the nicest man I know He cut two throats in the dark Soho I’m independent I’m no child I’m gonna catch me the big north lights The angry loathsome wuthering heights Morning time morning time I’m sixteen years as free as the seagull Morning time morning time The coach lights fade the coach lights blare I said the coach lights fade the coach lights blare And I hope the skirts will fly up there I’m independent I’m no child I’m gonna catch me the big north lights Those angry loathsome wuthering heights Move yer arm buster!

Migrants 03:18
Migrants Is there an end to this clangour Why must we chase, when we have our own pace We'll say goodbye to the city Find a hole where we can hide away and be Lovers like the rest In our own place With paper cups and plates Let Mindlesness emotion be... Should we be found we'd be branded Oh let the brand be mild For we have each others arms On and on, forever No longer torn, no longer children We, are lovers like the rest That's all Tirelessly in awe Let mindlessness emotion, be...

Please do all you can to support all independent musicians trying to shine light into the darkness in these difficult times. I hope you enjoy the two tracks we've made available for streaming enough to pre-order the album which will be released as a CD and a download at the end of June 2020. Thanks to the wizardry of Bandcamp anyone that pre-orders automatically gets an immediate download of the two advance tracks "Too Much In Love" and "Left Us To Burn".

Cheers

Martin xx
