about

This compilation aims to help out with costs incurred during Tom Carter's recovery from the illness which hospitalised him during Charalambides European tour last year. The number of artists who wished to be part of it kept growing & so here it is, a little further down the line than we'd planned, but with so many incredible contributors, we hope it's been worth the wait.

2013, DV44. Compiled by David Colohan & Gavin Prior.

There's another excellent download compilation raising money for Tom still available here:

Track Name: United Bible Studies - First Crossing
FIRST CROSSING

The lake glimpsed through a creaking bridge
Underfoot between the sleepers.
Each glinting gap a swallowed gasp,
Each stuttered step sets hearts clenching.
Threadwalking over an empty drop,
Where the wind would wash us in......
Each sun a star, each lake a mirror
Refracting blinking constellations.

The slower drop beneath the lights below
Sets the child's mind turning.
With breath held high, back to the wall:
Oncoming train - I'm shuddering.
On tensile steel, on bright thin air
Away from me, away to sea, away from Lough Atalia.
