Washover 04:39
The temperature’s dropped, noise stopped, barometer’s fallen Sunrays poke their own way through the gloom The wilderness and the emptiness are calling You’ll never get out, if you don’t get out there soon Round this time of year, you gain a primal yearning And it burns just like the fires upon the fell The colours of your youth they are returning Wash over the gates of God with the flames of Hell And who’s to say, you’ll end up swimming backwards For you the current flows far too strong You’ve never lacked in passion, you’ve never lacked lust Who’s to tell you that sort of thing is wrong? So watch over me tonight and I just might Washover you So watch over me tonight and I just might Do anything you do Anything you do Do anything you do Do anything you do Anything you do Round this time of year, you begin to get crestfallen You say there’s just so much you have to do And ain't it easy to get down when things get boring But then you work out exactly what is true to you So watch over me tonight and I just might Washover you So watch over me tonight and I just might Do anything you do Anything you wanna do Anything… Washover you Washover you Round this time of year Yeah, round this time of year Round this time of year

about

An ever-expanding album, written over Summer 2022. Some heavier tunes feature this time.

Photo is my own, of Workington Docks in Cumberland, England.
Mouth of a Docker? Mouth of the Cocker? or Mouth Like A Rocker? - who knows what would have made the best album title?

Actually this doesn't quite work, as Workington Docks sits at the mouth of the River Derwent, not the River Cocker, which joins the Derwent at, you guessed it, Cockermouth... never mind eh.

Review by Hans Werksman of herecomestheflood.com
Mint Biscuit: "Mouth Like A Rocker"

Richard Thomas goes for a rough-around-the-edges approach on "Mouth Like A Rocker", the new album by his one-man project Mint Biscuit. His hard rock side comes to the fore in I'm A Big Metal Fan and the bluesy The Jaguine Article.

Being the proud owner of a couple of cool axes - he used a Squier Jazzmaster, a Squier Jaguar, an Epiphone ES-339, and an Epiphone Les Paul - he allowed himself to explore various moods and tunings.

As for the album's title: it is a pun on his place of residence Cockermouth. And yes, he has heard all the lame jokes about that already.

Power chords sit comfortably next to single notes. Playing by intuition is not without risks - a tune can fall apart quite easily - but Thomas has a firm grip on where he wants to go. In this case a bit louder than his usual shtick, but it worked out well. He might be working his way to thrash metal or something equally challenging.
