Yes, Siesta 244, and will be released around mid-October, I think.

I should have copies before the first London gig to sell. I'll put it on the site soon...

I think it is the best album yet - favourite tracks are I am a Canvas, My Little Doll, Golden, It is, Beautiful (that's one track with an interesting arrangement of commas), and My Heart is Leaping.

I agree with Hogsy about the artwork - I love the gauzy pattern on the wings. In fact I wouldn't mind a blouse in that fabric, if the shop could possibly oblige (Size 10, please - petite if you've got it)!

Yes, I'm scared to start gushing about it in case I can't stop. I also like 'This Is The Story of my Life' a lot. It even has a line about knitting! My favourite tracks keep changing - I also get like that with Scarlet's Well albums - maybe it's because they are all so rich that you can discover new bits with each listen.

As usual, there are two old ones on this album.

"My Little Doll" was written in 1977, along with the earliest Monochrome Set songs, like He's Frank and Goodbye Joe. It originally know as "Vespas", and the lyrics have been re-written.

"Piepentube" was written circa 1982-1983, I think, but was never completed, and never had lyrics. Actually, I think it would fit in quite well with the Eligible Bachelors album.

Of course, I write songs all the time which I decide aren't ready, and place them, rolled up and wrapped in a red ribbon, in a cellar which is tended by a grumpy hunchback.

If the shop is going down that road can I book a outfits made of the artwork for each song please? The bat would do me for Halloween, the deer is very sweet and I also like the Indian with the bow and arrow - she is cool. Gauzy wings excellent as well of course.

Indeed it does, and the knitters don't come out of it at all well, as I recall - at least, not the ones making woollen garments!

Just placed an order for the album to the forum shop (thanks for the tip M's M! ^_^ ). Hope to have it in time to warm up a little with the new songs before the gig at Turku, Finland in two weeks.

I can see why, though "piepen" is a different kind of "peeping", isn't it?!

Gatekeeper is excellent! From the 60's psychedelic smash in intro to the end, I love it.

Really enjoying Peter's guitar work on this one.

Scarlet's Well album artwork is always fantastic, but this one is my favorite. I really like the layout on the back cover and the mechanical part of the dress on the My Little Doll page.

What were the original lyrics?

Are you angling for a shirt in that fabric too?

I can remember, but won't say, haha.

I think Lester still has a very old rehearsal tape of it, which will never be released, teehee...
