about

This is an album I began recording in 2012, with all the proceeds from the album going directly to Movember to fund the research into the treatment of Prostate Cancer. Every penny of the sales of Mo-Town will go to Movember.

All of the songs on this album pay homage to some of the great Mo-Bros of the twentieth Century; musicians who wore the 'Mo' with pride, and who made legendary music doing so.

Track Name: Easy
I Know it sounds funny but I just can't stand the pain,
Girl, I'm leaving you tomorrow.
It seems to me girl, you know I've done all I can
You see I begged, stole, and I borrowed.

Ooh that's why I'm easy,
I'm easy like Sunday morning.
That's why I'm easy,
I'm easy like Sunday morning.

Why in the world would anybody put chains on me?
I've paid my dues to make it.
Everybody wants me to be what they want me to be.
I'm not happy when I try to fake it; no.

Ooh that's why I'm easy,
I'm easy like Sunday morning.
That's why I'm easy,
I'm easy like Sunday morning.

I wanna be high, so high.
I wanna be free to know the things I do are right.
I wanna be free, Just me.

That's why I'm easy,
I'm easy like Sunday morning,
That's why I'm easy
I'm easy like Sunday morning,
Like Sunday morning.
Track Name: Abattoir Blues
The sun is high up in the sky and I'm in my car,
Drifting down into the abattoir.
Do you see what I see, dear?

The air grows heavy. I listen to your breath,
Entwined together in this culture of death.
Do you see what I see, dear?

Slide on over here, let me give you a squeeze,
To avert this unholy evolutionary trajectory.
Can you hear what I hear, babe?
Does it make you feel afraid?

Everything's dissolving, babe, according to plan,
The sky is on fire, the dead are heaped across the land.
I went to bed last night
And my moral code got jammed;
I woke up this morning with a Frappucino in my hand.

I kissed you once, I kissed you again,
My heart it tumbled like the stock exchange.
Do you feel what I feel, dear?

Mass extinction, darling, hypocrisy,
These things are not good for me.
Do you see what I see, dear?

The line the God throws down to you and me,
Makes a pleasing geometry.
Shall we leave this place now, dear?
Is there someway out of here?

I wake with the sparrows and I hurry off to work.
The need for validation, babe, gone completely berserk,
I wanted to be your Superman but I turned out such a jerk.
I got the abattoir blues.
I got the abattoir blues.
I got the abattoir blues.
Right down to my shoes.
Track Name: Maneater
She'll only come out at night,
The lean and hungry type,
Nothing is new, I've seen her here before:
Watching and waiting,
She's sitting with you but her eyes are on the door.

So many have paid to see
What you think you're getting for free,
The woman is wild, a she-cat tamed by the purr of a Jaguar.
Money's the matter,
If you're in it for love you ain't gonna get too far.

Oh here she comes,
Watch out boy she'll chew you up.
Oh here she comes,
She's a maneater.
Oh here she comes,
Watch out boy she'll chew you up,
Oh here she comes,
She's a maneater.

I wouldn't if I were you,
I know what she can do:
She's deadly man, and she could really rip your world apart.
Mind over matter,
The beauty is there but a beast is in the heart.

Oh here she comes,
Watch out boy she'll chew you up,
Oh here she comes,
She's a maneater.
Oh here she comes,
Watch out boy she'll chew you up,
Oh here she comes,
She's a maneater.
Track Name: Stand By Me
When the night has come,
And the land is dark,
And the moon is the only light we'll see.
No I won't be afraid,
Oh, I won't be afraid,
Just as long as you stand, stand by me.

So darling, darling
Stand by me, oh stand by me,
Oh stand, stand by me
Stand by me.

If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall,
Or the mountains should crumble to the sea.
I won't cry, I won't cry,
No, I won't shed a tear,
Just as long as you stand, stand by me.

And darling, darling
Stand by me, oh stand by me,
Oh stand now, stand by me
Stand by me.

When the night has come,
And the land is dark,
And the moon is the only light we'll see.
No I won't be afraid,
Oh, I won't be afraid
Just as long as you stand, stand by me.

So darling, darling
Stand by me, oh stand by me,
Oh stand, stand by me
Stand by me.
