  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    This Swill's Surprise Session CD brings you 52 minutes of chat and live acoustic versions of new and rarely played songs from The Men They Couldn't Hang, Swill solo and extended TMTCH family.

    It's a basic no frills recording livestreamed from my kitchen and originally broadcast on 20th January 2022 as a follow on to a series of Covid 'lockdown' gigs. This session includes a ukulele version of Red Kite Rising - a song TMTCH will be recording as the first track towards a new album.

    Kitchen Sink Home Recordings has come up with a completely original format. The CD will have ALL the songs – without the chat in between so you can listen through to each one in order, like you would with a regular album, BUT the last track is the WHOLE SHOW - 33 uninterrupted minutes of songs, stories, waffle! Plus be sure to listen through right to the very end for a hidden extra track.

    Track list:

    1. Red Kite Rising
    2. The Snow is Falling
    3. Rain, Steam and Speed
    4. The Men Behind The Guns
    5. The Day After
    6. Whole Session (33.47)

    Includes unlimited streaming of SWILL'S SURPRISE SESSION (JAN 20TH 2022) via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

Red Kite Rising Words by Paul Simmonds All across the land the alarms were ringing Sirens sounded & the clouds looked down The birds in the hills were flipping & singing Something’s coming Something’s humming We’re not going to sleep tonight So here comes Stefan, out of Llangathen Stretching in the wind like a willow tree Brushing off the ashes, looking at the fascists ‘I never stayed down In the Towy ground Are you coming downtown with me?’ (Yeah!) Hail! Hail! Red Kite High! Over the river & up in the sky All you tyrants are out of time Look on the blue horizon Then you see the Red Kite rising... ‘Hey old friend one thing to remember Some of us are born to blow on the embers Live your life in pleasure & splendour They never could kill Old Joe Hill And we’re not going to sleep tonight We’ll fight to the end & we wont surrender In the cities & the towns with the Gibson & the Fender Johnny B Goode’s gonna love you tender Whatever the cost Whatever the loss We’re not going to sleep tonight’ Hail! Hail! Red Kite High! Over the river & up in the sky All you tyrants are out of time Look on the blue horizon Then you see the Red Kite rising... All across the land where the people do assemble Where the quislings quiver & the tyrants tremble Thieves in the Palace & liars in the Temple Red Kite’s rising Come out fighting We’re not going to sleep tonight Hail! Hail! Red Kite High! Over the river & up in the sky All you tyrants are out of time Look on the blue horizon Then you see the Red Kite rising...
