This is a co-write with the guitarist Jeff Cliff, based around a discussion about Superman having the Worst Job In The World. Everyone has such high expectations of him, and sometimes he just needs a day off.
Jeff and I managed to record a basic demo on a phone, but this recording is me in the studio.
(Note for time signature fetishists - this is a combination of 5/4 and 6/8, which officially makes it prog...)
The Fainting Goat
I had the good fortune to attend one of Boo Hewerdine's songwriting retreats recently, and wrote 8 songs over 3 days. I was challenged by a fellow songwriter (late one wine-fuelled evening) to write a song about a Fainting Goat (look 'em up on YouTube kids...).
So, I rose early the next morning, and wrote this song whilst in the bath. This is its first outing, over breakfast.
