“Cutting Up Rough” is a return to my favourite music – blues with a tinge of rock thrown in. Hope you enjoy listening to the album as much as I enjoyed making it.
- Snow on the Roof
From the heart. You’re never too old to rock!
- Shit Happens
Well, let’s be honest – it does, doesn’t it?
- Cheap Wine
Best avoided. Written from bitter experience.
A song for our times, released as a single
- Another Gig
Reminiscent of days spent in run down bars and clubs
- Do Your Own Thing
A slow blues about ignoring sage advice
- Move It
My personal tribute to Cliff Richard
- Drifting Blue
Life is sometimes shitty and you lose your focus
- Cutting Up Rough
The title track and one of my favourites of all the things I’ve recorded over the years
- Everybody’s After My Money
If you get sick of cold callers and junk mail, then this is the track for you
A blues number about happiness? No, not really!
- This Is What We Find
Always liked Ian Dury. This is a bit like his style I think
- Ballad of the Band
Takes me back. Art of art’s sake but money for God’s sake
- Born Under a Bad Sign
A classic song to round off the album
