I have often had a go at developing this Don MacLean song. “Buy the Waters of Babylon” seemed an interesting ‘play on words’ seeing as much of the farming in the area + the Dead Sea Salt farming has meant that the rivers are less reliable and thus life is more precarious because of the intense farming (reference to Zion) Sink holes appearing in large areas of uninhabitable land around the Dead Sea. Babylon . the banks for the Euphrates is however straddling the Countries of Syria and Iraq.. of which i weep for.
Christmas Album is finished… 6 vocal live-looped tracks, recorded in a studio in Wandsworth, UK. Mixed by the seriously talented and amusing Michael Rendall and Executive Produced by the mighty-and-one-and-only Youth (Killing Joke: Official, The Orb, Butterfly Records), massive thanks to them for taking this on at such short notice… I learnt so much in a short space of time.. My head is SpiNnInG
