About this item

When I left Woodford Halse twenty years ago, I did so without rancour, but also entirely without regret. It wasn’t the sort of place anyone lived in. It lacked scope, space, possibility. It was to the world what a model village is to a real city: small, staged, sterile - a facsimile of life. I hadn’t meant the break to be so definitive. Caught up in my own life and self-importance, I hadn’t been back more than three times in twenty years, never in the last decade. I kept in touch with my parents, of course, calling them once a week and occasionally meeting them at some equi-distant pub / restaurant for a mixed grill or Sunday Roast. It was a sad state of affairs. They deserved more. Perhaps this could be a turning point?

At last, I came to my family home, the place I was raised, nurtured. I would be safe here. I put my hand on the familiar yellow gate.

I didn’t even hear the retort of the rifle until the bullet hit me, slamming into my right shoulder like an angry bee. Dad was clearly home.

STAFF COMMENTS

Barry says: A superb collection of ghostly ambient, simmering electronica and soaring synth bliss on the ever reliable Woodford Halse, including stunning tracks from a veritable who's who of the scene. Superb.
