  1. Sound quality may not be great, I mean we had no microphone and were sitting about a room at George’s dad’s. These are the words of the first song we sing which I wrote at 18, two years before we recorded this.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>&g> It’s a Blue Sky don’t Hold no Rain. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ We came across some bones of men
    Scattered in the rust
    So many good souls turned to dust
    Within these shattered husks
    And these people had worn jewels
    And their heads had been held high
    Speckled foreheads touched the sky
    Behold the sparkling in their eyes

    Don’t you know it’s a blue sky don’t hold no rain
    Don’t hold your love in vain
    ‘Cos we’ve still got some loving to do

    Some time ago the white man came
    Bringing bible, books and sword
    Bound them up in twining cords
    In the name of their great Lord
    They slew down the Aztec, Inca, Ibu, Masai
    Now we hide in concrete lies
    To my Mammon side I cry

    What have we done
    To the Mother Goddess Gaia?
    Why can’t we nessle in her
    Warm aching bosom?

    Just a little drop of rain
    Just a little drop of rain
    Just a little drop of rain
    Come bless this land again
    (repeat x3)

    Now the world’s a spinning ball
    Two thirds with none to eat
    So while we chew our scrawny meat
    Can you hear those big bells bleat?

    What have we done to
    The Mother Goddess Gaia
    Why can’t we nessle
    In her warm aching bosom

  2. The above album of odd ditties, along with songs and jams from the 90s and early 00s, has bits and bobs of songs written back in the 80s, though earliest recordings on it are Oct 31st 1991 in a church in Ashburton Devon. It starts with 3 Spacegoat tunes. These 3 are the first ever Spacegoats recordings, also made in Devon, from late 1992.
