about

After the final show of their 2018 acoustic tour Damian Wilson and Adam Wakeman decided to go into the studio for one day and try to capture the onstage chemistry. They played through songs performed on their 27-date tour through Europe, which had an ever-changing set list every night, and recorded everything.

Aside from stripped down versions of songs from their joint albums and both their solo catalogues, the album also contains a selection of cover songs that were part of the tour set list: Life On Mars (David Bowie) and Feel Like Going Home (Charlie Rich). Soldier is played in Damian’s original song arrangement, before it became a Headspace track.

“I've never made an album that left me so exposed before. We both recorded completely live in the studio, so every noise from the piano damper pedal, every breath, every note and expression is laid bare on the recording. There's something magical about not being able to alter or fix anything once you've captured a performance.”
- Adam Wakeman –

Track Name: Life on Mars
It's a god-awful small affair
To the girl with the mousy hair
But her mummy is yelling, "No!"
And her daddy has told her to go
But her friend is nowhere to be seen
Now she walks through her sunken dream
To the seat with the clearest view
And she's hooked to the silver screen

But the film is a saddening bore
For she's lived it ten times or more
She could spit in the eyes of fools
As they ask her to focus on

[Chorus:]
Sailors fighting in the dance hall
Oh man!
Look at those cavemen go
It's the freakiest show
Take a look at the Lawman
Beating up the wrong guy
Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know
He's in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?

It's on America's tortured brow
That Mickey Mouse has grown up a cow
Now the workers have struck for fame
'Cause Lennon's on sale again
See the mice in their million hordes
From Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads
Rule Britannia is out of bounds
To my mother, my dog, and clowns

But the film is a saddening bore
'Cause I wrote it ten times or more
It's about to be writ again
As I ask you to focus on
Track Name: Feel Like Going Home
Lord I feel like going home
I tried and failed and I`m tired and weary
Everything I've done was wrong
And I feel like going home

Lord I tried to, to see it through
But it was too much for me
So now I`m coming home to you
Yes I feel like going home

Cloudy skies are closing in
And not a friend around to help me
From all the places I have been
Lord I feel like going home

Lord I feel like going home
I tried and I failed and I`m tired and weary
Everything I've done was wrong
Lord I feel like going home
