Thanks Ken, glad you liked it! There's a video of a rather rusty performance of the guitar for this track here if you fancy it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4EzCjSTSyG8

Thanks Nick, glad you liked it! Recorded the bass at about 7am after an all-nighter and the guitar needs a fifth finger (i.e. thumb) on the LH to fret a couple of the chords. A bit unconventional but when needs must... :)

Thanks very much and award yourself a gold star for excellent sample-spotting! We used the sound of the bridge from Kirk's Enterprise - there's a load of ST sounds at stinsv.com - and it just happened to be 120BPM, exactly the same tempo as the track. It seemed as if it had to be done. Curious as to what you mean be a 'male' sound - that's a very interesting and intriguing comment - can you tell us more about what you mean? :)

One Place by Flicker. Album: At Least 1000 Words (2002) One Place was another piece written for acoustic guitar by George in Prague. It was largely composed under an archway opposite the entrance to a bar called Chapeau Rouge, between Staroměstská and Náměstí Republiky. It uses the tuning DADGAD and first became manifest in the late spring of 1997. One Place was inspired by a Polish drinking game of the same name. Both players must sit cross-legged in the lotus position and stare intently into both eyes of the other player simultaneously, for as long as possible, without blinking or breaking off the gaze. Becoming hypnotised is permitted. One Place is also dedicated to the idea that making music or art of any type necessitates being in a special place to which you can go - essentially all the same place whatever the form of expression - and accessing that place when the artist is ‘in the zone’.

Phoenix in the Bin by Flicker. Album: At Least 1000 Words (2002) Phoenix In The Bin is a situation that will change. How on earth do you fit a phoenix into a bin? Do you suppose it will stay there long? What will happen when it escapes? This piece tries to examine these issues. Originally this tune was just a groove with a working title of In the Bin. Somehow the image of the phoenix seemed an appropriate addition. The section with the heavy cellos was the result of a splendid jam between Dave and George which was never again properly recaptured, however hard they tried. Music by G. Davies/D. Danielli/L.

Lucky Stone by Flicker. Album: At Least 1000 Words (2002) Lucky Stone is about two things. It describes a day at the seaside with a friend and a souvenir from that day which lived in the dashboard of George’s car. This piece also describes a fortunate and unexpected encounter with a certain trader who had an excess of goods he could impart.

Week Five by Flicker. Album: At Least 1000 Words (2002) Week Five is a tune that George wrote around the time of his TEFL course. It was a four week course, and Week Five is all the stuff that happens to you as a teacher after completing that initial course of training. The sound of the Prague Metro was recorded on George’s tape recorder that he used during his teaching. He simply pressed record and left the thing running as he went from his digs at the Hotel Opatov to the office of his school in Albertov to capture some sounds of the city. George's friend Genevieve appeared and sat beside him and proceeded to chatter away for the entire journey, unaware of any recording going on. Music by G. Davies/D.

Welcome to the Family by Flicker. Album: At Least 1000 Words (2002) George had made friends with a Hungarian called Floyd who showed him a new chord from a Portuguese sea shanty, from which this piece grew. When George was headhunted by the MD of the company Floyd worked for, Floyd gave him a copy of Mario Puzzo’s book The Godfather, and wrote ‘Welcome to the family!’ inside the front cover. Obviously this piece in Am could have no other name. Music by G. Davies/D. Danielli/F. Zoboki/A. Celestine. Copyright © 2002 Wud Records. Copyright ℗ 2002 Explicit Music.

Tomorrow by Flicker. Album: At Least 1000 Words (2002) Tomorrow was almost called Tomorrow Will Be Better, as it’s good to have something to look forward to when one is feeling glum.

Blown Away by Flicker. Album: At Least 1000 Words (2002) Blown Away is a piece that is about surprise, although it actually contains few true surprises. Sometimes one imagines one is stood firmly upon solid rock, yet when one wakes from one’s delusions it can clearly seen that said rock is actually quicksand. This piece is in the key of E. All the guitars were tracked using the Ice Maiden through the ancient Marshall and Dave played the bass on the Fender. Music by G. Davies/D. Danielli. Copyright © 2002 Wud Records.

The Percolator by Flicker. Album: At Least 1000 Words (2002) The Percolator was written largely by Dave and modified by George. George composed and scored the flute part for Emma after his guitar part. It seems to be about the vague imaginings one might have that manifest into more coherent thought after musing has occured. This may be nonsense though, Dave wrote it and maybe it was just some tune - hard to know as nobody has seen anything of him for years, A lot of this piece is in a slow 11/8 time - count 1-2-1-2-3-1-2-3-1-2-3 for the main theme. One of the keys to unlocking this piece is to follow the claive. It plays on every other beat, so sometimes it is on the beat and sometimes off. Music by G. Davies/D. Danielli.

Beautiful Wings by Flicker. Album: At Least 1000 Words (2002). Fun Facts: Black Sabbath once told us that fairies wear boots. We can confirm that this statement is absolutely true. Beautiful Wings is another Flicker tune written using DADFCE tuning on acoustic guitar. It is dedicated to George’s girlfriend at the time of it being written, which was around the time of the solar eclipse in 1999. She often wore fairy wings, and if she walked past something and brushed her wings against it, she would then hold the wing, grimace, and complain of a having terrible wing-ache. During the solar eclipse of 1999 this same person told a member of the public how she had grown them, which was highly entertaining and well worthy of a tune. The conversation went like this. P: Where did you get your beautiful wings? GGF: Well... when I was a very small fairy I had these two funny little stumps on my shoulder blades, and then suddenly one day, I woke up and these two beautiful wings had grown. P: Huh. Come on, where did you get them, really? GGF: (stamping her foot in indignation) I just told you where! P: (a little wide-eyed) ... Music by G. Davies/D. Danielli/L. Welsman/E.

Or Maybe Not...? by Flicker. Album: At Least 1000 Words (2002). Or Maybe Not…? is a piece about uncertainty, the ending of one thing and the beginning of the next, fears and insecurities, and the notion that perhaps we never really know each other very well at all. Or is it? All of the guitar was played on the Ice Maiden, using the neck pickup. The player needs to use the fret-hand thumb as a fifth finger to hold down some of the chords. The bass was played on The Plank. Music by G. Davies/D. Danielli. Copyright © 2002 Wud Records. Copyright ℗ 2002 Explicit Music.

Farsight by Flicker. Album: At Least 1000 Words (2002) Farsight was a piece that George wrote around March 1995 during the days of The Ug Brothers. Originally there were words for it too, then Dave wrote some other words, then The Ug Brothers split before they ever really nailed it. This was a great shame as it was one of the band’s collective favourites and one of the last new pieces they worked upon. This instrumental version seemed to be a convenient resolution and is largely true to the original. Music by G. Davies/D. Danielli/G. Barbe/N. Board. Copyright © 2002 Wud Records.

Moonpath by Flicker. Album: At Least 1000 Words (2002) After dark, when the moon is low in the sky, it makes a road to itself all the way along the sea. If you are heavier than a duck, more than just your feet will get wet when you embark along this road, or Moonpath, as we called it. The guitar was played using the Ice Maiden, with the main rhythm guitar (melody and origin) of the track doubled up left and right. The bass was played on The Plank, which is tuned B-E-A-D.
