about

The album ‘Field Play’ was created by collaging together samples from music and films, ‘environmental’ sounds, and original musical instrumentation. Through lyrical mantra, ‘Field Play’ promotes and celebrates the freedom of the creative individual and collaborators within contemporary society. The artworks, which come with the download, are collages referencing/informing the music (and vice versa), thus forming a reciprocal dialectic relationship between art, music, and audience.

NOTE: download comes with bonus album artwork and collages. You can't be serious!? Yes, it's very exciting stuff!

Track Name: These Things
Though I told you this is sensible

I don't want to hold on
I don't want to hold on

but you keep hold of
you keep hold of

these things
Track Name: Practice
When will you try it for yourself, with no one else?

I'm not asking you to put down your guitars, I'm just suggesting that you use them in a different way

You don't need to be hanging around, you don't need me to show you how

When will you try it for yourself, with no one else?

Why don't you find something new to bring out the best in you?

If you just start to look you'll find that there is something more and we all know you have the courage, what you waiting for?

You don't need to be hanging around, you don't need me to show you how

When will you try it for yourself, with no one else?

Why don't you find something new to bring out the best in you?
Track Name: Mystery/Hair & Body
Making something good is not a mystery,
it just takes some hard and productivity:
shake your hair and move your body!

Don't give up on what you do,
don't give up on what you do 'cause I know you too well

(shake your hair and move your body)

(la la, eh-oh)

Making something good is not a mystery,
it just takes some hard work and productivity:
shake your hair and move your body!

Don't give up on what you do,
don't give up on what you do 'cause I know you too well

(shake your hair and move your body)

You're good at the things you do, so why would you start to let it go?

(shake your hair and move your body)

Making something good is not a mystery,
it just takes some hard work and productivity
(shake your hair and move your body)!

You're good at the things you do, so why would you start to let it go?

With your eyes wide open
we go round and round in circles
it doesn't matter what he says
'cause it just ain't true!
'cause it just ain't true!

And you're interrupting,
got a hole where you soul is!
It don't matter what he said,
'cause it just ain't true!
'cause it just ain't true!

With your eyes wide open
we go round and round in circles
it don't matter what he says
'cause it just ain't true!
'cause it just ain't true!

And you can cycle round the park at night in the old floodlights where the tennis is played, and this time the moon is right for the both of us if you just stay true, if you just stay true!

See you can be anything you wanna be, what'cha wanna be, what'cha what'cha wanna be? And you can do anything you wanna do if you just stay true, if you just stay true!

With your eyes wide open
we go round and round in circles
it don't matter what he says
'cause it just ain't true!
'cause it just ain't true!

(ha aha ha aha)
Track Name: Ski '92
All you need
start making things
maybe then you'll see?
It takes a really long time!
(and)
You've got to keep creating things
even with all the stress it brings
don't feel bad if you disappoint yourself,
no don't feel bad if you disappoint yourself
because you would never fail to impress the room!

(all you need)
Track Name: Collaborative Efforts
Why do you make it so hard for us to be creative?
It's as if some days you've just given up!

So please remember that it's sometimes good to collaborate so don't block me bro, don't shut me out! Don't shut me out!

(don't block me bro!)

Why do you make it so hard, so hard for us to be creative?
So hard, so hard!
It's as if some days you've just given up!

So please remember that it's sometimes good to collaborate so don't block me bro, don't shut me out! Don't shut me out!

(what about the old songs?)
(what are your song?)
Track Name: 4 Yawns
Take some time off once in a while you can sigh

Be sure not to rush
Track Name: Elephants/Not Myself
I'm not thinking of anything,
I'd like to be thinking of something!
When it's cold out I stay indoors,
I get so tired then I get stoned!

I'm not thinking of anything,
I'd like to be thinking of something!
When it's cold out I stay indoors,
I get so tired then I get stoned!

Happy to know you,
so glad to meet you,
today we are hiding like the happiest elephants!
Wrapped up in bed sheets,
it's easy to get baked,
let us be lazy today we are the lucky elephants!

I'm not thinking of anything,

(getting to know you)

Getting to know you,
getting to know all about you,
getting to like you,
getting to hope you like me.
Getting to know you,
putting it my way, but nicely.
You are precisely my cup of tea!

Every idea that you have allow yourself to make mistakes
(Oh, what a cool cool day)
