about

Will spent most of 2012 in Australia; Danny spent most of his year with maps, cigarettes and delicacies from Greggs. These experiences inform the first Crooked Weather album, ‘Quantum Mango’, written in the latter part of the year. They convened in Hull in early 2013 to record it with the prolific Stewart Baxter (of the Warren Project) and with the veteran recordist John Cox in his hallowed Cupboard studio. The result is consummate Crooked Weather, equal parts chops, unruliness and earthy rhythm.

Track Name: Mango Memories
Mangoes and memories,
Black and white,
Childhood dreams.
Stay on board,
Float down stream.
Enjoy the juice,
In the summer breeze.
Summer breeze

Stepping stones,
and magic beans
Secret words and private keys
Promised plans lamentable thee
Oh mangoes and memories
Track Name: Blood Never Sleeps
When the wind rips up through your cotton bare clothes
it chills you deep, it numbs your toes
what are doing here so far from home
with a bottle of thoughts and guilt in your soul
your soul, no no, your soul

I'm not looking for riches, not looking for gold
Just tryin' to find questions that have been sown
so I travel deep, I travel wide
but I never find the end to the question
why, oh why, do I wonder why
why oh why

There's a beautiful day above the clouds
waiting up there to come down
so do your time and do it well
stop looking in the mirror and chasing your tail

For the bridge is crumbling away
to the ordinay life to your ordinary way
and the road goes ever on and on
but blood does not sleep until the job is done

Why, oh why, do I wonder why
why oh why oh why oh why oh why oh...
Track Name: Just The Other Day
'cause I see old boots and plant pots clogging up my doorway
I can't bear to look so I turn the other way
To the rubbles of my memories that are oh so long ago
It’s funny how they feel, just like the other day
The other day, oh the other day

Sitting on the patio my mind goes for a stroll
It wonders which way to turn it wonders which way I can go
Shall I don on those old boots and head out on the road

'cause I see old boots and plant pots clogging up my doorway
I can't bear to look so I turn the other way
To the rubbles of my memories that are oh so long ago
It’s funny how they feel, just like the other day
The other day, oh the other day
Track Name: My Free Will
Oh deary me,
I’m a long way out at sea
I want to go find out
I want to go into the blue

For a very, very very very long time
No no, no no
For a very long time

But I’ve found my free will once again
It spent a long time hiding
In places that I couldn’t find
In places that I was blind

For a very, very very very long time
No no, no no
For a very long time
Track Name: Mango Tootin'
Mango tootin’ I love this feeling
Taking it easy is how we like to be....
To be

Come with us now through the pressing rain
Come with us now to the parasol shade
Lie back and drift away
Forget all about today

Oh, what’s going on?
We are hurtling towards the sun
The light it bends
Those words don’t make much sense
And now my wings melt off
And I am done, done, done, done, done, done
Falling, falling

We are mango tootin’ we love this feeling
Taking it easy is how we like to be....
To be

And now you're down to your last few beans
But what a journey it has been
And I know you're here, I feel your mind
Taking it easy in mango time
Mango tootin’ I love this feeling
Taking it easy is how we like to be....
To be
Track Name: The Cruel And The Kind
I'm spending time with the cruel and the kind
the cruel and the kind are on my mind

We're wayfaring drifters, waylaid in the snow
trying to make a dollar and have fun while we go
so stop pouring scorn through your smoke stained smile
your behaviour is outrageous and your presence is vile

and oh, when the cabin fever sets in
like the creeping cold
you drink yourself to sleep
and you, you long for home

You're only going to get on chance to say what you want
so stand on your two feet and give them what you've got
'cause I don't want two faces, no I only want one
so you can see who I am and you can see who I'm not

But oh, oh what a rush
out carving the snow
and for a few hours
you can let it all go

I'm spending time with the cruel and the kind
the cruel and the kind are on my mind
Track Name: Dragonfly
Fly, in the morning sky
In the Morning Sky

Your home is my asylum,
I hope you don't mind,
If I join you in this moment,
If I join you for a ride.

The dance of the dragonfly,
Dance oh my my,
The dance of the dragonfly,
The dance oh my my

Free to go
Wherever your mind says so
Free to ride
On the morning tide

The dance of the dragonfly,
Dance oh my my,
The dance of the dragonfly,
The dance oh my my
Track Name: Me and You
My dear, across the world
Is coming, to hear some words,
That comfort her, remind her, reassure
But words are, are no more,
No more than wind

Freedom, sent me away,
Freedom, put me in this cage,
Well would that I could lie beside you with piece of mind
But I can’t, I can’t
And I know, that if I look back,
I am lost, so lost

It ain’t easy being washed ashore,
Sure of nothing, but your sore feet,
That have been running far too long,
From the shadows out of songs.
And I’m trying to do
What is best
For me and you
