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

Track Name: Big sky new light
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
Track Name: The boy's heart
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
Track Name: We can roll
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
