/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    The Mendip Rock EP, reissued in a beautiful printed mini record jacket with inner sleeve and re-sealable outer dust cover. Black vinyl-lookalike CD.

    Includes a numbered set of two limited edition poster prints. When placed side-by-side, the prints feature an extra-wide scenic panorama of the Mendip Hills from the Mendip Rock cover shoot, with the full lyrics to "Amber" printed underneath.

    Mendip Rock was released in the spring of 2008, and contains an extended cover version of the delightful Jagger/Richards authored foray into space rock, "2000 Light Years From Home", which originally appeared on the Stones' 1967 album, Their Satanic Majesties Request.

    Each of the two print panels is approximately 6" (154mm) tall x 17.5" (446mm) wide. Placed end-to-end, the combined width is approximately 35" (892mm). They are trimmed by hand, so final dimensions may vary slightly. Poster prints are rolled for shipping.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Mendip Rock via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

lyrics

No one can change me;
I change with the leaves.
No eye can hold me;
I shift with the shade.
The sky is my mirror,
and so I am blue.
I have no reflection,
no colour that’s true.

When the sun stops and stares,
golden-haired upon the stone,
I am transparent,
transcendent, unknown.
When the crowd presses in,
voices drone and pulses pound,
my hands have no feeling;
my words have no sound.

No one can find me;
I was lost long ago.
No form can sustain me;
I am scattered like sand.
Brittle shapes in the air,
what are they? Thin veneer.
And what hides underneath—
it is only too clear.
So the ship is adrift;
all is still on the sea.
In the eye of the storm
all the answers agree.

All the wheels—
clicking gears ticking time din my ears.
I’m standing outside,
untouched by the years.
Dust to dust, to and fro,
so the pendulum swings,
but frozen in amber
I know not of these things.
