Withdraw

Recorded at Rubycue Studios, engineered by Nick Hunt.

Falun Gong practiced by a 100 million in China
Before the persecution
Began in July 1999
Thousands have been killed for a belief
To be true, to be kind, to endure
The CCP will not be
So withdraw and withdraw and withdraw

Falun Gong is Good
I am telling you now clearly
Let truth be understood
The fabricated lies on TV
Thousands have been killed for a belief
To be true, to be kind, to endure
The CCP will not be
So withdraw and withdraw and withdraw

Poetry: The Things We Call Life

The Things We Call Life



By The Eaghams 

The boat it's sail follows the breeze
 It's flow
 To show us which way to go
 The flame kindled by the woods
 We call home of a flowering
 Forest gate where Henry VIII
 His name a gate came to hunt and play
 The annual rings of loyalty
 The populous of trees a generation
 Take us to the Tavern or Caravanserai
 Of the Good Man's Poetry
 Taking my coffee at the Station Cafe
 Writing these songs horizon of harbour
 Reading the epic verse of Derek Walcott
 Were philosophers seeking the basics
 Were writers penning the dynasty
 Of all that's related -
 Of all that congruent, straight up.

Poetry: Pilgrims Progress

Pilgrims Progress



By The Eaghams 

Looking out my window canvas frame
 I set out in the world of Pilgrims Progress
 Of mirrors and the characters of January dawn
 I paint a picture got it down in sights and sounds
 Reflecting the timeless flowing stream
 Flaneurs of our country observed
 The rocks from the mountain deep
 Unconcerned with how I measure up
 To a ruler in ruins of a great house
 It's key there's been doors in the hall
 To get past what we used to know
 Grounded before the ivory towers
 On the chessboard they stay
 Hands on the clock
 So no looking over our shoulders
 Run the leg of the journey
 We dont need to hold arms
 Eyes on our vision we hold fast to
 There's been bridges
 With sheaves of harvest
 as our rails
 Over the seas they run across
 The stream leads to the river
 The river to the sea
 The sea to the ocean
 Love my lineage to bits
 In all it's fragments
 That's why I know
 Were one tribe

The Thirties

The Thirties



By The Eaghams 

When you're thirty five, you've traveled far and wide and read broadly, made some progress in a career, had a relationship or two, listened to some cool artists and bands, watched some classic movies. Maybe you've calmed down and drink Nescafe, (as the advertisements expect you when you reach your 30s) and go to restaurants, have a good mate from the early years - you reap what you sow. Maybe you're at a crossroads, maybe the road is level.

Maybe, the clubs are something you can revisit. Maybe the old group of your mates have scattered. Some married, some abroad, some doing new careers.

Maybe what worked for you was trial and error, and in your experimentation you went too far, run-ins with the law, or perhaps transcendence of some kind. Maybe conformity was your thing, to watch and follow suit, and not to set yourself so free you'd wind up having to define yourself anew.

Maybe you're wiser, maybe more reluctant, maybe more steadfast.

Maybe you don't need the dramas of your 20s, that art would do your sense of perspective good.

Maybe that although you'd been there and done that and got the t-shirt, it didn't portend anything too much as you were onto getting the whole suit and the three piece.

Maybe the concerts were a fire you could burn again in and experience didn't get in the way of whats new.

Maybe it's not that were thirty five that makes us more cautious but the playing out of events in our lives, the betrayals and dishonor.

Maybe others hardships made us steer clear and withdraw, maybe all the hype wasn't what it was supposed to be for, and withdrawing some hasn't been so bad if it's peace that we want, at least some of the time.

Maybe the incessant purchases of mp3s each week makes our jobs worthwhile, for the days off, the days of our lives.

Maybe it's our little obsessions that makes life sweeter, the being all dressed up is somewhere to go and if nothing happens maybe it does, but so slowly that you've already done so much, and culture our wardrobe.

On Minimalism

On Minimalism

By The Eaghams

Minimalism is something I became interested in after I wanted to get past the emotional debris of the past. It was in the photos, gifts, CDs, of the time. I let an age go to bring the future closer to present. As I threw things out, I was telling the universe that I was willing to see what next is coming into being. As I threw things out, the remnants of emotion that created atmosphere and ambiences that were mingled with feelings of yearning and heaviness left my room, were effectively subtracted, creating more of a zen uncluttered space. If I had several photos of one scene I would keep just the one.

To round up this post, enjoy this song by Gnarls Barkley entitled ‘Feng Shui’.

Raw Aesthete
 

No man is an island

John Donne

The man rests, his heart informs the piece
 Under the canopy of trees that curve
 As arch like the parasol shade
 The woman dons all breezy and free
 There is war, there is love in this heart
 There are colours, there is vigour
 In their upright air
 There is a fine spectacle such as this
 Under the vault of the trees and
 Of heaven
 Shoulder blades and swords
 Find the painters brush.

The Parisian is never indifferent to what goes on around him and the slightest new thing will stay his steps. A man has but to direct his gaze upwards and appear to observe something attentively and you will see others stop to look also. The crowd gathers and everyone is asking what there is to be seen…Street performers and quacks draw an audience at the first motion, though it melts away as quickly as it forms and the wandering crowd in the street is made up chiefly from the outskirts, of people little familiar with their surroundings ot those who like to waste their employers time. Examine any group; out of a hundred there will be forty servants and nearly as many apprentices.

From The Picture of Paris Louis Sebastian Mercier 1788

Update #2 Rap Credentials

I started to listen to hip hop records when I was 15. My friend Jason lent me a tape of Wu-Tang Clan’s 36 Chambers. I used to buy the HHC (Hip Hop Connection) magazine, it centred around the British Hip Hop scene. I had a drum machine I got on my birthday, and me and my bro started our own rap recorded on the four track mixer my brother owned. I remember the folder I kept. My brother later bought a QY20 sequencer. On that machine, you could take the beats on there to a studio and make a full hip hop track out of it.

Wu-Tang Clan were advertised in Newham Recorder, it was billed as the whole nine members, at the Ilford Island. Me and Jason turned up, the venue was filled with weed smoke. Ol’ Dirty Bastard and Prodigal Son turned up rapping off the DAT. ODB was swigging on a wine bottle.

At college I met DJ Excalibuh at the E block. He invited me on a track with a whole load of other emcees and characters. He came up with my rap name back then, ‘Guardian’. He invited me to the Stratford Theatre variety night , where I performed my track ‘The Elixir’. It was recorded on video by my folks., Backstage I met one of the line-up, Mr Hectic, who was passing out his contact details. I rang him up and went to see him in White City.

I went to see him every week, he was working on his Discovery EP, and I was working for his label Dig-A-Ble Records. I gave him a copy of the EP I had recorded at an engineer called Adrian Wyatt studio in his flat in WEst Hampsted. It was a mixture of samples from all over the place. I got inspiration from vinyl, on a record player my friend Vernon James sold to me for £15. I performed with Mr Hectic in Camden and did a collaboration on some songs we went to The Dairy to record.

I worked on an EP, and it wasmet with a response from a talent scout called Thembi, of Big Dada records, who expressed her response in the material. She put me in a studio awith her brother, an engineer, in Ham Park road, forest gate. I put together a second EP, and a few other tracks.
