about

With endorsements from Tom Robinson and Simon Raymonde still ringing in their impressionable ears, Bark Prelude swing back into summer action with their Festival EP.

Remixed from their debut album Start of Something Minor, Festival is a song shamelessly designed to wring some radio play out of their experiences in the trenches of Britain's sodden fields and sweaty tents. The track will be promoted by a series of Bark Prelude festival appearances where, in "guerilla gig" style, the band will perform unannounced at various festivals in unlikely spots. They might be in a food stall, lurking in the car park, or slap bang in front of a row of portaloos. Either way, for the poor audience there will be no escape.

"One Way Street", "WLTM" and "Come and Be" are three brand new spanking tracks.

Track Name: Festival
Kitty-Mae goes away
In her 3-man tent that she bought in Gwent
Pitches under the Cherry tree
With the home from home refugees

And this is how we spend our summer days
Plastic pints and patterned paper plates
No you couldn’t put a price on what we pay
For us to come and live this way

Dolly deals in her heels
Finger food to the multitude
Spreads fish on bruschetta bread
And gives out seeds to the poppy heads

And this is how we spend our summer days
With plastic pints and patterned paper plates
No you couldn’t put a price on what we pay
For us to come on out and play
Bohemians to be
We won’t whine if the sun don’t shine
Banjo Joes’ in the know he can show show show us for free

Micky Moore, what’s the score?
Year on year in the stratosphere
Stomps his feet, claps his hands
Avoids the hype and the must see bands

And this is how we spend our summer days
With plastic pints and patterned paper plates
No you couldn’t put a price on what we pay
For us to come and live this way

Track Name: One Way Street
If I showed you a route out of here
Would you use it?
If the path was laid bare and clear
Would you choose it?
We’re a One Way Street
Where cars collide
Flesh and metal meet
And I’m too numb inside to decide which way to go

If you gave me the key to your heart
I would lose it
And if I became the apple of your eye
You know I’d bruise it
We’re a One Way Street
Where heads collide
Flesh and bone meet
And I’m too numb inside to decide which way to go

Many times I’ve fallen short of your trust
And abused it….
So if I begged you for one more chance
….Just refuse it
We’re a One Way Street
Where fools collide
Flesh and ego meet
And I’m too numb inside to decide which way to go

Track Name: WLTM
Solo and staid he stayed at home alone
Changed his face, his age, his name
Faked life, deleted history
And liked the man that he became
And liked the man he became

She spoke mute words with her fingertips
Sixty w.p.m.
Teased the weak, created mystery
LOL, thought “more fool them”
LOL thought, “more fool them”.....LOL

Does it feel like we’re going backwards?
At nine thousand k.b.p.s.
The hurt, inert forever searching
A place where more is often less

Modern Mog and Mwfanwy Price
Doting, daring, dull, discreet
Crowd the ether from hill to sea
With love that fills the void so deep
With love that fills the void so deep
With love that fills the void so deep
Its love that fills the void

Track Name: Come And Be
Come and be, come and be the one
Come and be, come and be the one
Come and be you’ll do for me
Be the lifeboat on this sea-saw sea-saw sea
Come and be everything and nothing
Be the words to the tune I’m humming
Keep it neat, keep it sweet, keep it near, keep it far
Comme ci comme ça,

Take my world
Make it spin
Round and round
Fire ring
Freak me out
Plug me in
I’m still waiting for you....

Come and be, come and be my friend and
Come and become something special
Flick a switch, turn on the light
Tick the box, be my vox of love and sing…..
Come to me my brave tomorrow
Come fill this shell so hollow
Spook the ghost, make the most and hold me close
Ar hyd y nos…..
