The British Summer Ö rain, rain and more rain, couldnít go outside so I wrote a song instead. Please see the commentary in my blog for more info.

Dave Millard - Music, vocals, guitars, keyboards and half the lyrics
James Moore Ė Drums, percussion, cymbal splash and the other half of the lyrics
Brett Field - Bass

This is a collaboration in the truest sense, weíve played together for years, this is only the 2nd original song weíve played together on .. thatís going to be put right over the next few months.

If you download, set the Eq to Rock and enjoy.

Many thanks for your interest and support

Dave

AND PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT .. GOOD, BAD OR UGLY

BIG THANKS to Miranda for the great artwork .. cheers Maz !

I'm always struck how different your voice sounds on your own compositions as compared to our collabs. Not worse, by any sense of the imagination. Just more relaxed, I suppose. It's like a different Dave! Your description of James'/Brett's tightness (the cod's arse) is right on target. Brett's got some chops -- I'd almost wish to hear his bass more prominent in the mix. Nice guitar playing, Dave, and another nod to the drum-meister James. Great collab -- you three work really well together. Thanks for sharing.

Really cool tune guys. Your voice sounds different to me here Dave but still very very good. I really like how the guitars and the bass interact with each other. Beautiful work on the drums as well. Great tune.
Sorry about all the rain up your way. I hope all of you live on hills or at least have good insurance policies. I had a good mate from Brummy-ville who was in the insurance business but he is back over this way now. You get my vote.

Nice tune guys, Elvis Costello / Police vibe. Great job by a fine rythym section .. the bass should definitely be higher in the mix, but that could be the crap mac book speakers. A few timing issues .. mostly with the guitars, but well put together and a topical song for whats been happening in England these last few weeks. Vocal chameleon / musical tart ? just fine singing ! Good job, great tune.

Hey thanks to everyone for listening and taking time to comment, really appreciate it. (Note to self, more bass required).
Big thanks to Brett (who had to work under extreme time pressure) and James (who had to work to my timekeeping), 2 great guys to play live with .. and to record with too. I've given up on the British summer, I'm off to Spain next week !

Well they say when God hands you a bunch of lemons, it's time to make some lemonade. I guess that's what we have going on here with this song.

This is really great Dave, although I'm not quite sure how you managed to get all those word sung within the framework of each verse. But by God in the spirit of the stiff upper lip, you did it.

Sounds great all the way through. Awesome guitar work, great vocals, outstanding lyrics and, a great job mixing it all down.

I did go to your blog and read all about the flooding you Brits had to deal with this summer, and it was all over the news here in the states. But the blog made it more personal for me because of you vivid description of what you and your family went through. I'm just glad you made it through it alright.

Thanks for holding on to your sanity long enough to post this one, it's really great.

I love the Dr. Who police box in your art.

Guitars sound a lot like Pink Floyd's "Money."

Your voice is clear and in tune. Great feel for rock in your singing.

I like the chord progression. Well-conceived and executed.

Best,
