Somewhere There’s a Place For Us / Radio Stars

somewherefeat. Andy Ellison vocals, Martin Gordon bass/keys, Ian Macleod guitar, Chris Townson drums, Paul Simon drums, Steve Parry drums, Jamie Crompton drums, Paul Jones harmonica, Graham Chapman voice-over, Hermione Various everything else

A compilation of the band’s finest fishing songs, complete with heartwarming tales of fishermen’s jumpers, lighthouses, gabardine coats and rubber underwear. Even includes unreleased tunes (four, to be precise), one tune which was ‘not released properly’ and the elusive ‘Accountancy Blues’, the lyrics of which appeared inside the Holiday Album but not the track itself. But now it does. You cannot say fairer than that, we believe. Free Wellington boot with every seventh copy purchased – keep the receipts.

Phil Smee photographed the cosmos for us, and God waived his IPR and allowed us to publish it. Well done God, we say. Have you ever met God? Splendid fellow – bit of a problem over omniscience/omnipotence, of course. I mean He can’t be both, and He knows it. But we’ll get back to you on this one in due course, possibly at the end of time.
