about

After finally overcoming their geographical differences in the year 2000, Feline escaped from the Internets to perform five Belfast gigs in five days ('Feline Week'), then returned by popular demand for a special Christmas show at the Empire Music Hall - this album records the result.

‘More Analogue than EVER!’ was originally released in abridged form by Peoplesound.com, April 2001, catalogue number BRT0969-CD01-00.
Re-released unabridged by Corruptive Records in 2004.
This edition with a bonus track remastered at Feline HQ by Feline1, 2011.

about

The Feline Dream Brighton, UK

The Feline Dream were a collaboration between David 'Deakie' Davis and Nicholas 'Mermaid' Carlisle, a pair of gingers from County Down.

The band met a wretched demise in December 2003, however due to the invention of the phonograph by Édouard-Léon Scott de Martinville on 25th March 1857, their music can still be enjoyed today.

Track Name: Industrial Estates (live in Belfarce, Xmas 2000)
I never thought I'd get to leaving
Then they moved me out of town
Gave me something to believe in
Now I've turned my life around

CHORUS:
Waiting at the gates
I had to settle down
Industrial Estates
On the edge of town

Never had a better reason
Never had a better plan
I seen big men hangin' out in threesomes
Big men driving round in vans

CHORUS

Never thought I'd get to leaving
Then they moved me out of town
Now I'm crazy at the weekends
I'm crazy when I have the time

CHORUS
Track Name: Animal Daydreams (live in Belfarce, Xmas 2000)
The Feline Dream hidden in our eyes,
it now seems right to be realised.
No baby talk with the balls of wool,
it's time to show just who is the fool.

CHORUS: You have - one life - with this one life you have -
trapped us - strapped us - Now it's time for you to die!

Oh pretty pussies, are you ready to kill?
We'll catch them bending when they're pouring the milk.
A claw in the eye is worth two in the hand.
Our fire will burn throughout the land.

CHORUS repeat

Bow Down to Your Leader! Yes, we have won!
A New World Order should be fun.
Swear I'm no fascist and I'm not deranged
This is your promised messiah and she's ringing the change
Track Name: Beachcomber (live in Belfarce, Xmas 2000)
Beachcomber - wandering through sand and shingle

A southern wind
Blowing in from the ocean
Overcast, where the land meets the sea
Beachcomber
Sifting through the finer fragments
Still you take what you can,
well I just want to tell you

CHORUS(x2)
One day we made
A promise, just to break it
So don't you say
It got complicated

Beachcomber
Wandering through sand and shingle
Vagabond, the only way to pass the time
The broken sound
Of voices drowning in the white noise
Here I am, take my hand
Pull me from the wreckage

CHORUS repeat
Now you're on your own
Track Name: Glasshaus (live in Belfarce, Xmas 2000)
Breathing words upon the glass
In a mist their meaning lost
I want to call your name
The more I try to make it clear
The more I disappear
There's nothing to be gained

Out of focus, out of sight
No way to win, no will to fight
By day they leave no trace
In all the roles they tried to fill
They never saw the fool
Who put them all to shame


CHORUS:
If I could fly
Fly in the face
I'll find you there
Breath deep in the vapour trails
If I could try
Try to break free
I'll find you there
Breathing deep in the vapour trails

Put the pieces in their place
Body twisted into shape
It's always been the same
But I'm alone in all I do
I get no help from you
My work is done in vain

CHORUS repeat

Breathing words upon the glass
In a mist their meaning lost
I want to call your name
Track Name: Hilltop & Heartbeat (live in Belfarce, Xmas 2000)
Out here you see for miles
Out here we touch the sky
Out here the inside grows
Out here where no-one knows
...Where we are... aah-aah...

We can steal away No-one will see us go
Leave the rest behind No-one need ever know
Leave behind the grey We don't need them now
And be with your own kind We're gonna show them how
And when we're on our own You can take my hand
That's when we feel at home Flying over land
Forget your life before Forget all the rest
You've come through that door We know what we like best

Yes we'll grow wings and fly
Heartbeat never dies
Horizon stretches wide
We start to turn the tide
See them all... so far down below...

The trees beneath so green Start to believe
Rivers flow between Never want to leave
Hiltops race below Heartbeat racing too
See the sunset glow there's just me and you
To end a perfect day And enter the night
Your troubles melt away Better hold me tight
Track Name: Swept up by Sunlight (live in Belfarce, Xmas 2000)
Thrown away Oh so many things I didn't say
Time delay All my experiences seem this way

v.1
Picture a scene where your heart runs in
Swathes of green and flowing golden
Hungry light lifting you
Through a swell of memory
To a time when you were young

v.2
Clutch at the straws that you can't quite reach
Grasping fleeting shapes that meet
Deep inside their tearing teeth
An endless spiral you can feel
Somewhere you've lost your way


Wind whips past and you know this can't last
Search for home But still I find myself here alone

v.3
Through all these years so many tears
A crashing flood of memory
Sweeps frozen features frozen dreams
Shattered shards that's all they seem
A wealth of wasted time

v.4
If I could fly through all I see
I reach the ones that matter to me
He's waiting there he's always been
Arms outstretched and welcoming
And I know that I've come home
Track Name: Twilight (live in Belfarce, Xmas 2000)
Out in the trees, under the starlight
A tiny shiver, hold my hand tight
A distant whisper, see the moon bright
Almost always never there


And every single one has gone now
Look through my eyes, you never knew how
Can't understand and can't remember
But still the feelings linger on
Track Name: At A Standstill (live in Belfarce, Xmas 2000)
v.1
People speeding by they leave me stranded
At a standstill in the rain
I just sit and count the minutes passing
But for me there's no loss and no gain

v.2
Push and drive, so many ways to play now
Feel the rush against my skin
Maybe I will sit and watch the others
Cars that sigh down doppler wind


Squeeze the blood from the stone
You have to get there on your own
and there is no-one over the horizon

Squeeze the blood from the stone
You'll never make it on your own
Dream until they find you with the cursor
But you know your game is done
Track Name: Florian und Magalie (live in Belfarce, Xmas 2000)
I'll meet you at the station
Platform number four
There's nothing here to keep me anymore

I started feeling crazy
So many years ago
(Back in 1984?)
Ever since I let my baby go

Speeding through the tunnels
Changing at Cologne
Leave behind the safety of my home

But it's you and me together
You and me alone
The two of us forever on the run

(Florian... Magalie...)

Florian and Magalie
I don't know what's wrong with me
Florian and Magalie
Do they know what's wrong with me?
Wrong with me.
Florian and Magalie
Track Name: Red Sails (live in Belfarce, Xmas 2000)
Feel a bit roughed up,
feel a bit frightened
Nearly pin it down some time
Red sail action
wake up in the wrong town
Boy, I really get around

Thunder ocean
Thunder ocean
Red sails take me,
make me sail along

Red sails, and a mast so tall
Red sails
Red sails

Do you remember we another person
Green and black and red and so scared
Graffiti on the wall keep us all in tune
Bringing us all back home

Red sails
Thunder ocean
Red sails
Sailor can't dance like you

Red sail
Red sail action
Red sail
Some reaction

Action boy seen living under neon
Struggle with a foreign tongue
Red sails make him strong
Action make him sail along
Life stands still and stares

The hinterland, the hinterland
We're gonna sail to the hinterland
And it's far far, far far far, far far far away
Its a far far, far far far, fa da, da da
Track Name: A Different Story (live in Belfarce, Xmas 2000)
v.1
Two out of three ain't bad
Until you're begging for another one
And so I'm starting to grip your hand
You know I'm never gonna let you run
It's not that I'm hoping to hold you back
I'd never try to keep you under my thumb
Well, not as such...

So hide those glances at strangers like you hide those scars
You said that you were mine...

CHORUS:
...but inside your head, A Different Story,
another life to lead
That's what you want: your "freedom" - how boring! -
well, it isn't what you need

v.2
So I'm the best that you've ever had?
You call me on the telephone
("hello, it's me again")
Making like you're so sad
You're to-and-froing like a metronome (to/fro/to/fro)
Is it that you're trying to drive me mad?
Yeah, so then you won't be feeling so alone.

I've seen you starting to run dear: you won't get far.
You said that you were mine

CHORUS repeat
Track Name: People Without Pets (live in Belfarce, Xmas 2000)
Hi! - I'm a fool, a defector, I'm a sinking boat.
My eyes frighten children, stare madly from my hooded coat
Another day, a week, another year.
I can't control my ever growing fears
Can't keep in contact with the outside world.
It seems society would rather see our hero dead
I do not know the words He's a people without pets
That people feed each other With no need for silly vets
I'm frightened of the telephone Can't you see his mind is sick?
I tend to stutter He's a bloody lunatic

Circle, give me comfort from the vicious square.
Guide me, take me out into the open air
I cast aside responsibility.
So independent but I don't feel free
Human emotions don't apply to me.
Wish I could laugh some love or spit some hate with honesty
I cannot care about myself He's a people without pets
or any being With no need for silly vets
I need to learn the rudiments Can't you see his mind is sick?
of social living He's a bloody lunatic


So, I get up, and I go to the window,
and I catch sight of something soft and warm on the grass below.
Somebody comes to retrieve the cat and it strikes me that,
she's had a lifetime of practice with furballs...


I feel so happy now the answer's clear.
I've gone untouched by softness all these years
My fingers itching now we're on the street.
To touch the beards and hats and coats and cats of those I meet
Track Name: Lull (live in Belfarce, Xmas 2000)
Early morning
make your way home
Cross the motorway
glowing alone
Rays like crystal shine down
from above
Bathed in orange
November sun
Track Name: A Different Story (metalwerker dub) [Bonus track]
v.1
Two out of three ain't bad
Until you're begging for another one
And so I'm starting to grip your hand
You know I'm never gonna let you run
It's not that I'm hoping to hold you back
I'd never try to keep you under my thumb
Well, not as such...

So hide those glances at strangers like you hide those scars
You said that you were mine...

CHORUS:
...but inside your head, A Different Story,
another life to lead
That's what you want: your "freedom" - how boring! -
well, it isn't what you need

v.2

Yeah, so then you won't be feeling so alone.

I've seen you starting to run dear: you won't get far.
