Astrologer Astrologer by Dark Company. Album: Signmaker Download: https://wudrecords.bandcamp.com/track/astrologer Lyrics by P. Greatorex. Music by G. Davies/P. Greatorex. Recorded, mixed and produced by George Davies at Silent Running Studios Exeter, Autumn 1991. Remastered at Wud Records Studios 2010. Copyright © 2010 Wud Records. Copyright ℗ 1991 D & G Music/Explicit Music. Performers: Peter Greatorex – vocals George Davies – guitars, bass, Boss DR220A drum machine, EDP Wasp Rowena Parsons – tenor sax, flute Sammi Lock – flute ASTROLOGER The planets run their course and then Make signs we cannot read The stars of choice they got no voice Just wink and dumbly plead When dawnlight speaks from out the dark Of night’s grim cloak of ice All the telescopes of the scientists Don’t help them to be wise And I hear rainbows climb the sky Coloured tears from Heaven’s eyes I taste sunlight’s yellow wine See black night fade back into time Mystic men write words that flame To banish Satan’s lies The human race must join the chase Instead it just slips and slides On special days weird omens come Judged by blind-eyed priests But the tribes of man like grains of sand Pray only for release And I hear rainbows climb the sky Coloured tears from Heaven’s eyes I taste sunlight’s yellow wine See black night fade back into time The planets run their course and then Make signs we cannot read The stars of choice they got no voice Just wink and dumbly plead When dawnlight speaks from out the dark Of night’s grim cloak of ice All the telescopes of the scientists Don’t help them to be wise And I hear rainbows climb the sky Coloured tears from Heaven’s eyes I taste sunlight’s yellow wine See black night fade back into time Fun Facts: This song is in the key of E. When George wrote out the score for the sax parts, it had six sharps due to being in F# on the sax. Row was somewhat wide-eyed when she saw the score as concert E major is not the best key for tenor saxophone. The guitars were recorded straight into the desk. Although it worked fine on keys, the sax part in the choruses had too many notes to make sense, so every other one was dropped. Pete wrote the words for this during August 1991 whilst on holiday in Bexhill and informed George of its manifestation by postcard. This song is played at 112BPM. Chords for verses are E-Emaj7-Bm9-Bm7. Chords for choruses are Am7-B7-Am7-B7. The intro chords are E, Am, F#m11 and Bm11. Astrologer was later performed on the streets of Prague by Dr Watson and was also used by George during his English lessons when he worked as a TEFL teacher. An attempt was made at converting this song into a Cubase sequence a couple of years later, the results of which were a somewhat twee sounding ditty that could be a splendid theme tune for a TV programme for very young children. That particular arrangement of the song became one of the bonus tracks of the Signmaker album.
