The Last Bird Has Flown

    5 Track EP that was released to coincide with Swill's April 2018 UK tour

    The title track ‘Mist On The Water’ is taken from ‘Roll To The Left’ (2017). It was recorded in the home studio built by Steve Lillywhite for his then wife Kirsty MacColl and where she recorded the vocals to ‘Fairy Tale of New York’.

    Next up are 4 previously unreleased tracks - the autobiographic skiffle-a-billy road story ‘New Song Blues’ which starts off in ‘Swill’s’ home town of Oban in Scotland then jumps in a Vauxhall Victor and drives all the way to Broadcasting House in London for the John Peel show …namechecking Elvis, Hank Williams Buddy Holly, Gene Vincent, The Jam and The Clash along the way!

    On ‘The Last Bird Has Flown’ Swill plays the actual Black Martin guitar previously owned by Johnny Cash and used during the American recordings in the 90’s.

    This is followed by the bouncy ‘Cajun Instrumental’ – a track destined for great things as a piece of backing music for DJ’s to talk over in excited tones.

    Last, but not least, is a live version of ‘Mist On The Water’ recorded at the hallowed Green Note in London’s Parkway on 14th September 2017. Nice!
