These are demos at best, if i'd have had the money I'd have gone to the studio with them. But I didn't.

I was working bars and writing when I got home.
Most of it is Jam/Automatic writing stuff, apart from the 'Asking' LP which is still quite sweet.

Sunday Dress is my sister's favourite song of mine.
'Doh Ray Me' is Ok too, as are few songs on 'East Pennine Rain'.
