The death of the CD industry has been forecast for sometime, but the news that HMV was on the verge of going into administration in early 2012 was still a shocking turn of events for this once venerable high street chain.

Maybe it's just because we came of age as the music industry was at the peak of its commercial powers, but to us the CD was a magical music delivery device. We bought, bartered, stole and swapped them in the pursuit of building music collections to invite envy and admiration. Then it all came tumbling down.

And now, we're nearly free. But really, who wants to be free?

This is the only song we put out in 2013. A very slightly different version of the same song appears on our 2014 album 'Big Noise!'

We made a video to accompany the song. Go watch it!


released April 20, 2013
