Ain't it murder is our reaction to the news at the height of the London's riot, the Japan nuclear disaster and the Berlusconi underage sex scandal.

This track has a long cinematic introduction before suddenly turning into a very groovy electric tune! Some people told me that it sounded like a movie soundtrack...

Story

This tune is another extract of the multimedia show "Ocean Experience" soundtrack, so with footages of gigantic whales on the screen. The idea I had for the music here was not only to represent the peacefulness and magnificence of this animal, but also the travelling aspect, the fact that they are migrators. David did a brilliant job in producing this and also managed to find some real recordings of whales that we included in the soundtrack and that in turn inspired me for the lyrics. Stefanie Cayless is the voice.

This tune is the very first tune I wrote in collaboration with David A. Stewart back in 2003. I had this really smooth guitar riff and we recorded it in his bedroom studio on the 4th floor of a council house near Waterloo. Crispin Forster came up to lay down some sax . And finally we met Jonny Amobi who wrote lyrics and sang on it.

Humm..This is sexy! especially the wisperings at the end. I am not sure who she had in mind. A lucky guy obviously!

Story

This tune is an extract of the Ocean Experience soundtrack. You need to imagine hundreds of sharks on the screen.When you think of sharks you automatically think of the movie "Jaws" but this time the idea was not to represent  sharks as  aggresive and dangerous and I thought of a more joyful theme that would work better. At the end everyone was happy....Briag did some magic here as well. He completely detuned his guitar to come up with this really cool arpegio.
