SONGBOOK #1 TWENTY TWO
Posted by Iona Singleton on May 15, 2013

SONG FACTS

A song about that pivotal age of twenty two - when you suddenly start to grow old with every birthday (as opposed to all the preceding years up to twenty one, when you are simply growing up). Unless, of course, it's not about that at all, and it's a song about an old man being rejected by a twenty two year old girl. Just like the famous illusion where you can see both a young lady and an old hag, the song can be seen both ways..

The vocals are a duet between Tim Elsenberg and Paul Ibberson (although when hearing the finished album at the launch in London, Paul couldn't remember singing it - must have been a good session). All powered by the guitars of Horacio Pozzo and the saxophone of Theo Travis.

The backing track also has some unexpected hidden delights, with Geoff Nicholls pumping away on his didgeridoo (yes, it does contain a didgeridoo), and some drunken piano flourishes from the wonderfully named "Keith Tippell". Perhaps that should be spelt "Tipple". Not forgetting the trumpet of Steve Sidwell (the guy who did that ace Honda commercial).
