End Of The Pier, By Sir Silence And The Hush

On the 14th of March 2015, Sir Silence And The Hush are set to release a digital 4 track EP, End OF The Pier on Hushland Records.

End of The Pier EP is a collection of toe-tapping, post apocalyptic folk-rock-roots tunes that have drawn their inspiration from the imagined world of Charlie Hush, the main protagonist in Bill Taylor-Beales debut novel Kite.
The songs chart themes of ‘End Times’ both in terms of unending rain and devastation through climate change, as well a ‘tongue in cheek’ biblical narrative. As a character, Charlie Hush finds himself on the end of the South Parade Pier, with a hotel copy of a Gideon Bible and a pack of tarot cards conversing with the dead souls of those who accidently or deliberately never made it back to shore. He later finds himself to be a victim of a terrifying climate induced event creating a personal apocalyptic scenario to add weight to his many imagined versions. The lyrics are written from the perspective of Charlie’s world with his folk, rabble roots band.

Recorded, mixed and mastered by Bill and Rachel Taylor-Beales in their Hushland studio, the EP features an eclectic array of musicians including Paul Gray (former Damned/UFO/Eddie and The Hotrods) on bass.
Lucy Rivers provides violin and Stacey Blythe plays accordion. Their folk-roots melodies crossing over in dialogue and at times almost playfully jousting each other. Percussion from Shane Beales, and a guest appearance on tambourine from Melbourne based Kim Beales serve to make the collection into a family affair, with Bill and Rachel Taylor-Beales supplementing the rest of the instrumentation and vocal arrangements.

On the 14th of March 2015 Bill Taylor-Beales will be celebrating his 50th birthday and has decided to release End Of The Pier to coincide with this!
Please accept his invitation to join in the celebrations by downloading End Of The Pier from www.sirsilenceandthehush.bandcamp.com
(available from 14/03/2015)

Track Name: End Of The Pier
Now meet me on the pier tonight, when the tide is high
You wear your dress I’ll bring the wine we’ll dance before we die
See the children down below just playing in the sand
Laughing at their castles as they crumble in their hands -
Take my hand – take my hand
What’s to become of us

And if you say you love me now are you just being kind
Thinking that I need someone to prove this love is blind
Dancing right beside me girl to the end of this pier
End Of The Pier

There ain’t no picture postcard left, to wish that you were here
Always here – Always here
What’s to become of us

The skin upon my feet and for the demons I defeat and for love
Forsaking all I break and for all of my mistakes and for love
What’s to be come of us

Now every soul that’s gathered here upon this pier tonight
Wishing they’d been lovers once, or maybe even twice
Now the final sun it sets and all the clouds are burned
My lips are dry and I cant cry this tide is on the turn –
So we turn – and so we turn
What’s to become of us

The skin upon my feet and for the demons I defeat and for love
Forsaking all I break and for all of my mistakes and for love
Track Name: Dancing On Ice
Dancing On Ice

An Iron points its finger,
There’s a Red flag against a blue sky
She wears a red shawl
And she is dancing on ice
Dancing on ice
She’s down and dancing on ice

There are Angels flying from this city
Up to their father’s home
Leave us blind and naked
Dancing on our own
Dancing on ice
They’re down and dancing on ice

The light may come and light may go
But there’s always one last chance
I’ll look for you in the shadows
As you’re dancing on ice…

I am a black and white prophet
Singing of the flood
I am safe upon this highest branch
While you are dancing in the woods
Dancing on ice
He’s down and dancing on ice

Come take my hand
Out through the gates
Out of this city
When the ice began to break
Dancing on ice
We’re down and dancing on ice

The light may come and light may go
But there’s always one last chance
I’ll look for you in the shadows
As you’re dancing on ice…
Track Name: Here Comes The Rain
Here Comes The Rain

Jesus and the lame – Joan and the flames
Water becalmed – albatross hung
The animals run from the rain…

There’s a guy named Noah in the park
He’s collecting wood to build his ark
He’s says it’s gonna rain today
And if your not aboard you’d better pray
There’s no one else to blame – Here comes the rain!

Jonah don’t you come aboard
I’ve heard about you’re trips abroad
This ain’t no channel ferry home
Go finds some fishes belly Jo
There’s no one else to blame – Here comes the rain!

Old mariner your not allowed
To shoot no crossbow from my bow
I’m looking for a dove above
Who’s looking for a lot of love
There’s no one else to blame – Here comes the rain!

Jesus and the lame – Joan and the flames
Water becalmed – albatross hung
The animals run from the rain…

Here comes the rain – here comes the rain – here comes the rain….
Track Name: Jonah
Jonah

I’m Jonah, I ain’t a loner
That’s just my name now
Don’t wear it out!
I’m Jonah I don’t answer the phone I
I know who’s calling
Hey there’s no need to shout!

Hey there’s no need to shout!
Hey there’s no need to shout!
Cos it ain’t me who sees what you see in me

You tell me. You really need me
To go and pray for the city of the vain
I disagree now, I’m off to see now
I’ll take my leave now
Find somebody else!

Find somebody else!
Find somebody else!
Cos it ain’t me who sees what you see in me

Oh, so I set sail!
Oh, I’m in the belly of a whale!
Oh, I’m a drowning man,
Oh won’t you lift me,
Put me back on the ground

Find somebody else!
Find somebody else!
Cos it ain’t me who sees what you see in me
