new comet gain record is city fallen leaves or falling depending on state of metaphor although with the return of bombs to the buses of london maybe its falling city so that’s why i left,and when you leave a city like that or a city like yours you think about the good and bad,the psychogeography of past footsteps and ones you never take again and you need a memorial for these and because these personal feelings are universally coded,all cities being part of the same virus and thus the same melancholy and regrets and walks become you too-and the falling leaves baby-don't forget the spell cast by the falling leaves
comet gain is neither patriachal or matriachal in nature or construct it exists beyond the warring factions as FECKRIACHAL a moronic dumbing down of all achals and a wondrous leap into the unknown search for the everywhatever-a new more/less reasonable identity-currently comet gain is split into cells-english cell as featured on LP are rachel evans/jon slade/m.j taylor/david christian/kay ishikawa(there are known cells in new york with jeff greene/kevin pedersen/molly neuman etc-bordeaux france anne-laure/deschman/the mysterious femmes etcand one in thailand which is my brother hawking a fake cg-DO NOT TRUST THIS VERSION!he is a dodgy cockney and gets all the words wrong)for the album the structure was dc as the fuehrer supplying beer and most songs,with jon as himmler/goering figure although occasionally a bit mussolini-with k,rachela nd M.j as the beard framing the face, simon trought the producer and musician was the mustache and guest stars such as tydes darren rademaker,bart davenport,13th day of mays gentle ben and alison and french underground rockers herman dune were the 2 sideburns -there were other collaborator countries involved like dan treacy and steve dore and anne-laure acting as japan and italy.

the album features 13 songs with a hidden song somewhere too,FISTS IN THE POCKET is a fast popular song as it contains the word 'dude' a surfism from my time with the oakland boys-a mystical word resonating-in england we say 'mate'and france its 'mec'-the beach sung about in this song is a metaphor for where the crud ends up and where you can piss in secret in the sea,piss away all the land bad vibrations-we did a video fer this on brighton beach and rachel’s roof.this song is anger and resignation with jaunty chord stretch.DAYS I FORGOT TO WRITE DOWN is one of the 3 pillars of the record and is a ballad from the band to old friends and situations and the feelings felt therein-don't forgot your friends even if they forget you-write to them sometimes get drunk with them stay up til morning and then when you need the blanket of comradeship and your teeth start falling out this will be your compass route back-features viola and cameos by slade,bill karren and brent rademaker.BORED ROAR had seeds farfisa but the bastards took it out-is a riddim n blues garage ponk song after listening to lotsa ? and mysterians-rachel knocing back brandy while singing.tsk.DAYDREAM SCARS e minor dark angry is this what you call life-inner city mod blues-all the acid rock was taken out of album while i was in pub but backwards guitar duel here possibly featuring dan treacy is still a reminder of those vanilla fudge days.wee cowbell solo in tribute to fire engines/blue oyster cult.SEVEN SISTERS TO SILVERLAKE features AMERICANS even worse CALIFORNIANS being a fable of north london/southern calif-a country ballad pop song -if you will california 60’s country rock as imagined by penniless anglo felt -go betweens fans.ENGLISH MELANCHOLYusing samples from various psych records(sshh!)a pastoral psych thing with accompianaed freakout using broken chords found accidental-i try to sing like fey prince trapped in a mental asylum-words are abbatoir gibberish.PUNK GOT FUCKED is song we finish sets with a freeform punk poem of the decaying of those shops and places you hold dear as a connection to youth/important dates etc and there removal from view forever by unsentimental corporate viral agents-also a anarchists plea with positive finale for the future of disobediance-with atv style groove and one take farfisa frat freak,we like doing this as it never remains the same-this is side one ....do you really need the skinny on side 2?it has short pop songs and short ballads with banjos; harmony; violas; and electric punkpop and a song about robert forster and a ballad for mix tapes and old feelings and the beauty of our undergound
