  • Mendip Rock EP (CD Reissue) in Mini Record Sleeve with Limited Edition Posters
    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

I have the light all to myself here.
There are no shadows closing in.
Every candle here is blazing,
as if the night has never been.
As if the morning is forever,
and the afternoon a lie.
As if the twilight isn’t coming—
as if we will never die.

And splendid in her gypsy clothes,
Sunset opens like a rose.
And everything you think she knows,
like the light it comes and goes.

There is a volume on the mantle,
beneath the dust of many years.
Inside are pages never written,
and pages washed away by tears.
A catalogue of wasted moments;
a ledger of defeated souls.
Letters drawn in blood and tarnish,
drawn on paper made of holes.

And splendid in her gypsy clothes,
Sunset opens like a rose.
And everything you think she knows—
a door that opens, so shall close.

And the mask she wears is pure,
and the words she speaks are sure:

“Gifts you bring are hollow things.
The gifts you bring are hollow things.”

And splendid in her gypsy clothes,
Sunset opens like a rose.
And everything you think she knows
is in the face she never shows.
It’s in the face she never shows.
It’s in the face she never shows—
and like the light it comes and goes—
a door that opens, so shall close.
