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

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...

'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

My Free Will 03:55
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

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

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

Dragonfly 04:24
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

Me and You 05:32
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

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.

Often travel and adventure, both without and within, have been a mainstay of the inspiring antics that Crooked Weather draw upon for their craft.
