lyrics

That’s me, drunk on top of the post box. That’s you, trying to explain to the police
That’s us, jumping from the top board. That’s us, jibbing in for free.
And these memories mean everything to me. I couldn’t escape them if I tried.
Now I know you’re all safe, I can put them to one side. It’s like a sense of closure for me.
That’s me, laughing on the top deck. That’s you, red bus rover in hand.
That’s us, lost somewhere in Croydon. That’s us, running down the Strand.
And these memories mean everything to me. I couldn’t escape them if I tried.
Now I know you’re all safe, I can put them to one side. It’s like a sense of closure for me.
That’s us, sat in class 11. That’s us, under the maypole.
That’s us, smiling in the churchyard. That’s us, where did the time go?
And these memories mean everything to me. I couldn’t escape them if I tried.
Now I know you’re all safe, I can put them to one side. It’s like a sense of closure for me

Tales of the Tape:

Recorded by Mick Wilson at Far end Studios, by Jim Boggia at home (Jim’s, not mine) and by me at home (mine, not Jim’s).

Mick Wilson questioned the timing, played drums, tambourine, organ, electric guitar and rang the lunchtime bell. Jim Boggia questioned the harmonic content, championed “Croydon”, played bass and sang the “Wall of Boggia” backing vocals somewhere in Philadelphia. I visited my old primary school, sang, played piano, acoustic guitar and the mellotron sounds. No one knows who played the trumpet.

Mick Terry London, UK

Mick Terry's LP, The Grown Ups was released in 2010. A slice of piano power-pop at its finest, generously laced with influences from the ’60′s and ’70′s. A pinch of The Beatles, a touch of Beach Boys & splash of Todd Rundgren all add up to nine classic songs about love, loss, faith and hope. The Grown Ups is an album of classy and intelligent melodic pop. Pop music for grown ups, if you will… ... more
