about

My debut solo album. I was only a couple of months into recovery when I started working on this. It had been a while since I could write anything. I was feeling scared, alone and a little lost. I think it shows. I also didn't know much about recording - that definitely shows. It's quite ragged, but so was I.

The cover is a photograph of the guts of a dead piano. It had been dumped, like a drunk, on the street near the flat I was staying in. I'd pass it on my way to the train station every day. It broke my heart seeing it abandoned like that. It seemed appropriate to use it.

Until next time
Simon.
