about

Over three evenings at the start of the lockdown in the back room of the L.A.Signorina pizzeria in Stuttgart, 'bottle the grief' was recorded and then quickly released as a digital download and subscription only physical edition in very limited numbers. As some restrictions have been lifted it is now available (with a companion set 'exile songs') as a double disc edition.

'bottle the grief' consists of nine new songs written in march, whilst 'exile songs' are older songs played during the same three evening sessions. It was an uncertain time and in the quiet, dark room,(whilst the pizzeria was still closed) the songs came out slow and sparse. Chairs on tables, reservation phone set to silent and a deserted square outside.



The digital edition here includes a pdf of the lyrics and chords to all songs, whilst the physical edition consists of 2 hand stamped CD-r's, full lyric sheet, a playing card from the pizzeria and a clipping from a book of photographs of busy Italian cafés by Walter Vogel, recalling a different time of social and working life. First edition of 100 numbered copies.
