The Accused – St Cecilia, Blue Sky and Surrender

To round off Album of the Month for September, we look at the final three tracks on the album:

St Cecilia


………perhaps I should have been born in the age of crooners (it would have been easier to place me!!)……..and here I go stepping into that world…….Scott Walker has always fascinated me though I suspect I may have been wise to decline to meet him (careful what you wish for eh?) and his presence sits on my shoulder as I sing this.
Been singing it a bit live lately as it works very nicely with just piano ,guitar and voice…….and enjoying it


Blue Sky


‘blue sky’…………every now and again i have to let rip and this was the moment on this record…………Steve Barney on drums was so loud I had to go in the next room! Worth it mind……and I love putting this on for people who think they have me worked out (honestly; can we stop talking about ‘Wonderful Life’ sometime soon?).





‘Surrender’………a part of the much promised but not yet here ‘Bride of the Abyss’ suite. I love this but fully understand why anyone doesn’t get it…it is out of context at the very least………..I think Twin Peaks may have been screening around that time.

I didn’t see much of it but I DID catch Angelo Badalamenti’s score and something made an impression…made me want to try something more unusual. I may be about to re record this for the book/film..not that I think there’s anything wrong with it but it’s always a good idea to keep things fresh



Thanks for joining us for Album of the Month. We’ll be choosing another album of the month from the Nero Schwarz catalogue to feature in October.
