about

Music Supporting Cancer Research UK

As a perenially broke musician I can't donate as much as I want to the Worldwide Cancer Research charity. But YOU can, by purchasing from this site. Most tracks are from my former punk band, whose roadie Chris Bray died from cancer. There's also a tribute to my brother. Proceeds go directiy to WCR.

Track Name: 1977 (2013 recording)
We shook the ground in a Northern town in the twentieth century
We trod the sands of the promised land and it felt like victory……

The road went on forever, there were no rules left to break
I didn’t see it couldn’t last, I took all I could take
This is my story, disrespect me if you dare
I’m not afraid to tell it anywhere
Don’t fuck with me – I was there

Where were you?

Some of us were crawling, looking for a place to hide
And some of us have fallen by that dark wayside
No-one told me it was over, no-one said “you’ve had your share”
And if they did, why should I care?
Don’t fuck with me – I was there

Easy when you’re beautiful, easy when you’re young
Harder when you’re waitin’ for the breaks that never come
I look at what I squandered and at times it’s hard to bear
Whoever said life is fair?
Don’t fuck with me – I was there

Where were you?

Shook the ground in a Northern town in the twentieth century
We trod the sands of the promised land and it felt like victory
Those dreams are broken now, they’re way beyond repair
But I’ll remember, I swear
Don’t fuck with me – I was there
