Big Sky New Light Big sky new light, following dream time We are leaving down time, we are reaching dreamtime Attitude is uncool, dark clouds bring dark fools Break free from down time, Big sky new light Big sky, we need a cut that just can't change it's shape Big sky new time, or in the ghost we'll just get blown away

The boy's heart O arrow straight and slender, with grey eyes unafraid You see the rose's splendour, nor wreck that they shall fade Youth in its flush and flower, bare a soul of whitest flame Eternity in an hour, all life and death in a game May youth forever weave you, his magic around your ways And time the robber leave you, the boy's heart all your days Lets free ourselves, break out of lifes weight and chains, go get a whiskey, forget the game Lets free ourselves, break out of lifes weight and chains, piss off to Texas, forget the game We'l be living out December, from morrow through to morrow An old belief to lead us, pencil birth to follow Surrounded by a new time, of new flesh and new life And so we'l weep December, and so we'll weep new life Come the all important morning O arrow straight and slender, with grey eyes unafraid You see the rose's splendour, nor wreck that they shall fade Youth in its flush and flower, bare a soul of whitest flame Eternity in an hour, all life and death in a game May youth forever weave you, his magic around your ways And time the robber leave you, the boy's heart all your days The boy's heart all your days A child will have blended, his birth will follow

We can roll 04:28
Come on over pretty darling, stop your work I have something in mind You look so good this morning, let's take a walk outside Come stroll with your lover spend some intimate time Let the wind caress you let it ease your mind Embracing morning be a man and his wife Embracing this morning be good friends for life We can roll we can roll 2x Kick off our shoes skip the work to do it's our own time now, we can roll Free from the chains, far from the crowd All our cares have been lifted away You look so good this morning, come share this beautiful day Stroll with your lover spend some intimate time Let the wind caress you let it ease your mind Embracing morning be a man and his wife Embracing this morning be good friends for life

about

A delightful album produced by American punk legend Lenny Kaye, that saw The Daintees returning to the North East, away from the hassle of LA recording studios and session men. The title track, which flits from the First World War to psychedelic 60’s USA, and the stunning Hollywood Fields show that Martin’s song writing was still fabulously unconstrained.

‘The title track conjures up images of Burl Ives jamming with The House of Love … bizarre head-spinning stuff’ – Paul Davies, Q magazine, 7/92.

‘The Boy’s Heart is the boy back on course’ – Craig McLean, Vox, 8/92.

Recorded at Trinity Heights, Newcastle upon Tyne
Mixed @ 'Unit Three' Primrose Hill
Original photography by The Douglas Brothers
Sleeve design by Kieran Fitzpatrick
