Perfect Face

Perfect Face, from our last album 'Going Back to the City' was the first of our 'Lockdown Videos'.  Unable to perform or even rehearse during the Covid lockdowns we managed to put together some performance videos with each of the band playing in his/her lockdown home environment.  All of this was new to all of us, but we're pretty happy with some of the results.

Later, once we were permitted to congregate outdoors, we began a series of parkland concerts during which we featured this track.

Lost & Found

Lost & Found is about turning the corner, finding a road home, knowing where you want to be.

 

Things can be hard, life can be a bitch and you may be a long way from home, but there can be an exhilaration that hits you when you find yourself, when you know what’s right and you take that first crucial step, under your own steam, towards a goal you know you want or indeed away from a past you know you don’t want.

 

“Once I was lost but now I know I’m found”

Belfast Ferry Feeling

Belfast Ferry Feeling is an autobiographical song written by Will Hudson.

"I lived and worked in Belfast in 1979/80, and my daughter, Zoe, was born there, clocking up a good number of Irish Sea crossings.

 

Twenty five years later, as a member of a band playing traditional Irish music, crossings were pretty regular for another five years.

 

The song is about the strength of family ties. As an Australian in London, a Londoner in Belfast, and a father on tour, the ferry crossings were always imbued with a sense of excitement and longing.

This for Zoe, currently expecting her first child."      WH,  May 2020

Filmed at the Northern Soul Bar Basement, London

LEVON HUDSON

I'm going back to the city

before I die.

What if this road never ends?"
