James Grant and The Hallelujah Strings

JAMES GRANT is one of the most renowned and respected performers Scotland has ever produced. The LOVE & MONEY frontman returns with his band and his own bespoke orchestra THE HALLELUJAH STRINGS following his two emphatic sell out shows at Celtic Connections 2016.

 

Expect classics old and new; Strange Kind Of Love, Whisky Dream, Walk The Last Mile, I Can’t Stop Bleeding, Winter, Does It All Add Up To Nothing, Jocelyn Square, My Thrawn Glory and more..

 

The concert will be at GLASGOW CITY HALLS on the 23rd SEPTEMBER 2016. The venue will have a special resonance with Love & Money fans; this was where the first public performance of their classic album Dogs In The Traffic took place, 25 years ago.

Icarus

His fey blue eyes

Cast in the matrix of the sky

Hair like honey

Upon the limbs of a heaven tree

I gave him wings, he flew away from me

Icarus lies at the bottom of the sea

His supernal kiss

Cold upon my lips

Brittle and tart

Then it roared and ate my heart

I gave him wings, he flew away from me?

Icarus lies at the bottom of the sea

We flew so high

We had untold riches, he and I

But we dipped so deep

Dipped so deep

And he dragged me down to depths I’ve never known

Now the die is cast

The wreckage of the past

Still, sometimes I fancy I may see

My angel over me

 

 

Wanderlust

Wanderlust
A                                     F#min
I’ve decided I don’t want to defeat you now
A                                       F#min
But I can’t deny it, It would please me to see you go down
Cmaj7                        Bmin7
When I met you as a friend in the Cafe du Chrome
A                                  D
I wanted to slip you a mickey and take you home
A                     C#min7        D
Was it really wanderlust
Or lack of trust?
A                                       F#min      D
Didn’t I love you enough
Did I love you too much?
Fsharp min7
Charlotte, I’m undeniably slow
D
I don’t suppose I’ll ever know
A                                       F#min
Is it true they called you ‘The Poison Flower’ in your scholdays?
A                                       F#min
Is it true they whipped you?
But they could not whip you into shape
Cmaj7                        Bmin7
Are you so sure footed, so convoluted
A                                  D
Or are you the kind that always talks about it
That can never do it?
A                     C#min7        D
Was it really wanderlust
Or lack of trust?
A                                       F#min      D
Didn’t I love you enough
Did I love you too much?
Fsharp min7
Charlotte, I’m undeniably slow
D
I don’t suppose I’ll ever know
Cmaj7                      Bmin7
I thought I was your best friend
Cmaj7                     D
But you never told me anything
chorus chords
A                                       F#min
Where are you standing, some broken bridge some windswept pier
A                                       F#min
Was it the pursuit of romance or the escape of fear?
Cmaj7                        Bmin7
I heard about you long before I saw your face
A                                 D
If you need a cave of understanding
I know a place
A                     C#min7        D
Was it really wanderlust
Or lack of trust?
A                                       F#min      D
Didn’t I love you enough
Did I love you too much?
Fsharp min7
Charlotte, I’m undeniably slow
D
I don’t suppose I’ll ever know

CRINGEING AMATEUR

Ok, when I said,’The CD has two extra tracks that will not be available in any other format.’

I omitted the line,”Including even this one.”

It’s extremely unprofessional, tawdry and shambolic, but these have become bywords for my ouvre..

 

It wasn’t my fault, this is true; but I’ve been punting the product like Swiss Tony the used car salesman.

 

Therefore I assume responsibilty(no-one else has).

 

All I can add is that you will get the 2 extra tracks, Vertical has all your emails and addresses, so if you bought the vinyl/CD package I’ll make sure you get them. We need to figure out how, but I’ll sort it. As soon as possible.

 

I’m just upset that our most loyal fans should be treated this way, when they have stood by me and the band for so long.

I thank those already who have said shit happens, it does indeed, it’s not the start to things I would have wanted.

 

Complaints etc. to info@verticalrecords.co.uk.

Love And Money ; The Devil’s Debt

LOVE & MONEY

After their triumphant sell out shows at Scotland’s Celtic Connections and The SECC in Glasgow and a handful of shows throughout Britain Love & Money now felt the time was right to revisit a forgotten element of their past..

The Mother’s Boy was an ambitious double album which for various reasons was abandoned, with some of the songs surfacing on the classic Dogs In The Traffic.

The band have re-recorded some of these songs, which, allied to some completely new songs has resulted in their first album for 20 years..THE DEVIL’S DEBT.

Put simply; this is classic Love & Money.

Featuring the elements which they became renowned for;
Pristine production; learned from the masters the band worked with – Tom Dowd and Gary Katz..soaring vocals, guitars and strings and the impeccable lyricism of writer James Grant.

Both statuesque and guilefully catchy, this is the essence of Love And Money..2012

THE DEVIL’S DEBT special limited Collectors edition vinyl album with CD featuring 2 exclusive extra tracks and signed by the band available from the 12th September.
Pre order now from http://www.verticalrecords.co.uk. 
Price £21 (incl p+p).

Available for general release on CD from 24th September 2012.

Edinburgh Festival Fringe

I will be playing two nights at the Edinburgh Fringe performing hits from all periods of my career.
The Blue period, the Death phase, the Fairly Sanguine years…its only an hour long show but I can guarantee an evening of complete misery. I’ll be flying solo but God is my co-pilot.
