We're back. Yeah baby we're on the comeback trail. If we were a real band this would be our cynical "in it for the money" release, complete with special appearances at the big festivals and an inordinate amount of TV coverage being interviewed by presenters who barely know who we are but are so desperate to be hip they make out they were long time fans.

Craig sent me a cryptic "I'm ready for new DVP" about three months back right in the middle of my studio rearrangement. So, with the new Mac Mini finally up and running, the interface all hot and smokin I set to work putting together something with a little rhythm and guitar action. I didn't tell Craig that I'd been listening to a lot of Fountains of Wayne at the time, yet I think he cottoned on cos the lyrics he wrote and sang sit right in that power pop vein.

My Les Paul is the only electric guitar you hear on this recording. I tried to use a number of different styles, playing then off each other. I also made efforts with the bass to try and be a little more creative in places.

As is often the case with DVP the sum is considerably different to the parts. Somehow, across thousands of miles of Atlantic Ocean we get each other. It's a nice feeling to work with someone who delivers the way Craig does, each time and every time.

This is Dreamer, Dynamite Van Pipe at their best. Enjoy.

everybody wants to have it good
but good don't sit around
you got to work for it or lose it

and if the world heats up to two hundred degrees
it'll be despite the fact that we're hip as a breeze
yeah used as pope's knees, but sticking it out
sticking it out like we don't ever doubt

even star crossed lovers have to bring it back to earth sometime
and you can dream up at the heavens but the dirt is where you tie your bowline
i got a whole lot lower than I ever thought that I could take
and you were waiting at the bottom with a wink and a birthday cake

everybody wants to be loved
but love aint easily found
you have to be more than a little lucky

and if the world heats up to two hundred degrees
it'll be despite the fact that we're hip as a breeze
yeah used as pope's knees, but sticking it out
sticking it out like we don't ever doubt

the riddle of the story of you and me
is worthy of a seminar at Bletchley
in the end it's just the way that your hair wants to come undone
and then we come undone
