Another two free downloadable tracks from the Eddy Burns music archive
(i.e. the box under the stairs). They follow on from the other musical
freebies in December 2009 and February 2010 News pages. Again, they date
to around 1982, and were recorded on a Teac 4-track multitrack cassette
recorder (if nothing else, in those days you at least got a big long
name for your money when buying musical equipment), a crappy unrelenting
drum machine, and other gizmos with red and green flashing lights.
Hope Is On The Horizon
, is one I like a lot. Not sure what
it's about, other than whatever you get up to in life and no matter how
bad things appear there's always hope out there, somewhere on that ever
The second, The Looker
is, I suppose, about people who dress well and keep up with fashion and
expect to be eyeballed and admired wherever they go. I was never one for
fashion. That said, I did have a pair of 'loons' in the 1970s. They were
trousers with tremendously wide flares at the
bottom. That was in the days when wide flares were all the rage, the
wider the better for noising up those old folks. At least they weren't
too long and didn't trail in puddles and dog's muck in the pavements,
which is today's way of noising up old folks. (I'm well and truly noised
up - these things must get absolutely filthy.) And they were worn at a
respectable waist height and not down at one's knees (we were sensible
in those days).
So, I hope you enjoy 'em. They're just for home use, and not for sale or
