The last track to be completed on Question All Authority, my sixth album, due to be 'released' February 1st...

Lyrics: a song about a man being unreasonably optimistic about a dying relationship. I was also trying to create a very visual song, full of images but low on metaphors.

Music: I just got back from living under a rock for five years and discovered that there are now only two bands left: Coldplay and the Strokes. All other bands around at the moment derive from them. So I took all the Strokes clones, jumbled them together, and came up with this...

very well introduced and even more enjoyed - cool track and since I do hardly ever listen to the radio or MTv or CDs etc I am not really into bands at the moment - if I may say why i like the song a lot - reminds me of the good old pixie music and that is stuff I would care to turn the radio on again for ...
tnx for sharing this one with us

Great song to end QAA. I like the dramatic guitar parts and your singing. This seems like part of a rock opera.

Man, didn't realise how spoiled we were last year! Waiting for your material is difficult. Anyhow, loved the tune and the lyrics (agh, her eyes are burning a hole in my neck when I'm filling the kettle!). Great as always Ponk.

I like it. Looking forward to the CD (it will be in physical form, yes? With a spiffy dust jacket, available from a retail source?)

Good one ponkey, love the song. Nice job with the guitars and those background vocals (I can just barely hear).

Yes, this has been a rare venture (for me) into the world of writing lyrics to fit into a melody which is probablt the strong point of this song... the weak point is that I knew exactly how it should sound in my head and I always find it difficult to achieve that sort of thing. Much more fun making things up as you go along (for which see my new album, Born Between Floors, hopefully to be completed sometime this summer... I'm just cracking them out this year: I expect to have four albums done by Xmas, including Question All Authority, from which this song is taken. Incidentally, Baboon, the CD will be available from retailers in your area if you can go into your local record shop with a pile of CDs and say "Please stock this." Otherwise you'll just have to download all the tracks off iCompositions, along with the sleeve notes which I will be posting somewhere in downloadable PDF format so you can print out your own sleeve. How's that?)
