 +== Side One ==
 +
 +1. Hold Me and Forgive Me
 +
 +Help - it's a pop-song... Written for the album that never was (same session as Fighting..). Recorded in Nov '93, at home in Heaven (the studio not the metaphysical place of mansions) with the help of Eddy John on drums. The song appeared later on the acoustic live album 'Human Dress' with its original chorus line - Please Forgive Me.
 +
 +2. Loving Hands
 +
 +Help - we've got a sampler... Originally demoed in '89 at home in Bristol and remixed as a B-side by a nice young man called Steve Williams at 'The Greenhouse'​ - a London studio owned by Gary Glitter.... A gospel song inspired by Mahalia Jackson (who makes a sampled contribution near the end) and including tasty samples we got from Paul King (the Uptown Horns no less). Bass from a nice young heavy smoker called Simon Jefferis.
 +
 +3. My Eyes are Open
 +
 +Written and recorded in a cottage in Devon in August '90 but never released. Based around a sampled bit of the party that happens near the end of Sergeant Peppers - 'yeah, actually Ringo drums on this one.'
 +
 +4. Keep My Things
 +
 +From the '​Greenhouse'​ session, and also used as a B-side.
 +
 +5. I'd Rather Go To Heaven
 +
 +Recorded rather iffily at home, way back, and curiously used as a B-side on our very first single release for Siren Records in '​89.... said something about the experience of getting a deal.
 +
 +6. Only You
 +
 +Unreleased demo from '89, also remixed by Steve Williams.
 +
 +== Side Two ==
 +
 +1. Fighting to Make Peace
 +
 +A mastered version of the song from ‘Human Dress’, recorded a couple of weeks after we wrote it on Iona. Great drumming from Eddy John (such a sensitive soul) and beautiful samples recorded in Russia by our chum Martin Kizsko.
 +
 +2. Nothing
 +
 +A B-side recorded in Aug '89 at the legendary Soho studio Good Earth (Ziggy Stardust, T-Rex..) and mixed a Maison Rouge by a nice young man called Richard Moakes. The drums were played outrageously loudly by Ritchie Stevens and the bass by lain Maidman - who together played on the Siren album 'Lies Damned Lies' recorded that year.
 +
 +3. Help Me
 +
 +From 8-track demos in '88, looking for a record deal. Recorded in the loft (literally) by a nice young man called Richard Bull who radically (for the time) use a computer to programme the drums.... state of the art Yamaha sounds of the 80's - check out those groovy Whasers.
 +
 +4. Lies Lies Lies
 +
 +and.....
 +
 +5. You Came to My House
 +
 +Also B-sides via the Greenhouse session of Feb '90.
 +
 +6. Everyday
 +
 +An unreleased demo from the Devon session of Aug '90. We really did hang out at the Hangman'​s Cafe.
