about

'tell it how it is' is the lead out track, dedicated to and including a whispered middle 8 to Marvin Gaye “all I can hear, is Marvin singing what's going on today” and was written in response to the suffering of children in gaza, ignored by western media.

Track 'Deep Inside' is a homage to the British 60's beat R&B bands.

"Many thanks!" Craig Charles (bbc6music radio funk and soul show)
"One bona fide cracker" Joe Blogs/sussed magazine

If you just want to download, please do so from here, as you get a bonus track! Although it is also on itunes etc.

Lyrics: Tell it how it is

Tell it how, fears the devils game
Only fools know no shame

They use terror as the bait
Wars symbiotic greed n’ hate

Well it’s those fear creators, war makers, defending their own
Those storm chasers and love takers, their hearts turned to stone

Tell it how, you hear your own baby’s cries
Seen through those innocent eyes

The Powerful directing the crime
So let’s put them on the front line

Well it’s those fear creators, war makers, defending their own
Those storm chasers and love takers, their hearts turned to stone

Whispered Middle - All I can hear is Marvin singing what's going on, what’s going on today

Tell it how, on slow news days
When bloods given a purple haze

But a father’s kiss goodbye
Can surely never lie?

Well it’s those fear creators, war makers, defending their own
Those storm chasers and love takers, their hearts turned to stone

Behind their walls they’re holding, a generation that knows nothing but war
But there’s hope remaining, and banners raising, the media can’t ignore
