Tony Pucci What a beautiful album! Lovely, intense, melodic, intricate, intriguing, it’s an album to disappear into, involved in velvety soundscapes, an alter at which to pause and wonder, impressed and inspired beyond belief. “Rendezvous” and “Halfway” are immediate favorites, but favorites change over time; it’s hard to compare a single star to a neighbor shining as bright... Favorite track: Halfway.

I gather your camera is busted now it can't capture anymore thoughts the nightmares come in the morning now they can't wait any longer 1950s kitchen another cup of milky tea alone in an enchanted isle the supermarket closing in on me Rendezvous we nearly had a Rendezvous I hear your silly little voice at the door but the needle is stuck you stand there empty handed in the dim woozy light you say all the pipes have all burst On a foreign midnight freeze The high commissioner is searching low for you You chose the wrong option now please refund my life you always said the best was yet to come you made it seem like anything was possible the road to hell I gotta tell you is nearly almost is under reconstruction you always said the best was yet to come Rendezvous we nearly had a Rendezvous we nearly had a

wind is calling trees are sighing all of those sounds they sing your name rain is falling night is falling and I feel just about the same message sending passage bending all of those feelings create your face dawn arriving fear is thriving and I site and I think + I pace crying for a triumph searching for release they've noticed we are missing but they're barking up the wrong tree my head is flanged, camouflaged by desire looking for a miracle digging in the dirt for Troy the train is gonna leave we paid all the money to the wrong boy my shoulders frozen and the banks are closing now

Halfway 03:57
you walk the tightrope you juggle the past the stuff that you cleverly arranged was never gonna last you burn the candle you fan the flames its gotta be nice to put faces to all the names when you come down to earth I will meet you half way when you come back to life I will meet you half way you whisper a prayer you spit out a curse the books and the films and the dogma in which your immersed you walk the tightrope you soar and you fall you leave no memory or trace its like you were never here at all when you get out of bed I will meet you half way when you rise from the tomb I will meet you half way when you come down to earth I will meet you half way when you come back to life I will meet you half way

when you woke out of a dream when you got out of the car a light was shining on you all the time the light was shining on you all the time when you spoke out of desire when you sat down on the ground a hand was guiding you all the time when you stumble + you fall when you rise above it all a love was charging you up all the time a love was charging you up all the time when you go to school on the first day when you lie down in your grave a world was waiting for you all the time a world was waiting for you all the time a world a hand a world a hand all the time

about

CD COMING BACK INTO STOCK SOON

Jupiter 13
A foreseeable calamity. A triumph of science.
The last straw. Not what you think it is.
A top secret. Mans basic inhumanity to man.
The impossibility according to physics. Events trigger matter.
An infinite regression. A preventable catastrophe in the future.
Investigations are underway. Call girls. Drugs. Photographs. Blackmail.
Theft of dangerous materials. The underworld. The dark web.
The manipulation of dream. The war we waged on each other and the aliens.
Ray Guns and particle acceleration. The charge that blew apart the mains.
Witchcraft and black magic. Playing around with Anti matter.
The ordinary man in the street, a day in his life.
The memory of phone calls never made.
Komarovski do you read me.
The colonel in the gentlemens club sloshed on gin. Debris orbits a tiny moon.
Richardson is on the phone: we wanna talk to you about Jupiter 13.
Yeah I bet you fucking do!
Still there is music. Attack...Decay... Sustain ... Release...
Richardson hangs up somewhere in the past.
Time travel has been happening but the yanks won’t give us our go.
And we chucked in all that money.
Martin prepares an escape pod which will double as his recording studio.
He will float unconscious dreaming up symphonies that will be recorded by the software encoded in his spine.
Stefan H in Germany will know our mission is over and will play
one last lasting sweeping arpeggio which will signal the curtains.
A disaster. A mistake. A miracle. A mystery. Jupiter 13.
One hundred years until they open the files.
Goodnight.
Im trapped in the airlock and theres no gravity.
