about

This six-track mini-album/EP - from a earlier line-up of The Fever - is a compilation drawing on three different recording sessions.

The tracks were all were recorded at two different London studios, the bulk of the material (five of the six) spanning a period between from mid '05 leading up to the end of '07.

After listening through this material, all of which I hadn't heard in a while, I felt that these tracks not only warranted further exposure but also worked cohesively - if nothing else then only to serve as a retrospective, representing an early phase for Alex Haynes & The Fever.

about

Alex Haynes & the Fever Hackney, UK

From a blues/folk background in the North, Haynes moved to the capital to play in a couple of bands before forming his band The Fever in late ‘06.

The Fever was a rotating cast, along the way the act evolved into a two-piece with Haynes performing alongside pianist and drummer Rich Coulson.

With a heavy blues influence on Haynes’ songwriting and an elemental simplicity the result is a rich brew.

Track Name: Deus Ex Machina
Moving in and out of shadows
Fall to and fro from grace
Another time I'll be the wiser
Another time, another place

Deus ex machina - come on and save us all

Who took the punch, who took the fall?
It's your own hand that makes the scrawl
Across the wall, too close for reading
Step back, absorb it all

Deus ex machina - come on and save us all

Moving in and out of shadows
Fall to and fro from grace
Another time I'll be the wiser
Another time, another face

Deus ex machina - come on and save us all
Track Name: Nobody Come to Call
Must I, come and tell you now
You won't see your boy no more
'Cause nobody comes around
Nobody come to call

Girlfriend, well I tell you now
You won't see your man no more
'Cause nobody comes around
Nobody come to call

Mama, well I tell you now
You won't see your boy no more
'Cause nobody comes around
Nobody come to call
Track Name: Reeling
Feel like there's no-one in this universe
This is feeling like a hex or a curse
Upon my head, yes upon my brow
There ain't no question and the answer's now

Lonesome feeling leave me alone
All too crowded can't be on my own
Lonesome feeling leave me alone
All too crowded can't be on my own

Like the fear, maybe twice as bad
Still it's the best that I've ever had
Can't separate the truth from a lie
If I had wings I would surely fly

Into the eye of the rising sun
Wax is melting, what hell have I done
Into the eye of the setting sun
Wax is melting, what hell have I done

And now I'm reeling, yes I'm reeling
And now I'm reeling run and save my soul

Could spend the night or we could spend the day
If nothing's sacred we'll just throw it away
We make our choices and we won't be swayed
To rewrite history must have something to say
And here is something if I may be so bold
We'll leave the past and the rest will unfold

And now I'm reeling, yes I'm reeling
And now I'm reeling run and save my soul
Track Name: Natural Woman
Well, the girls in London such pretty things
I see them floating by me
Like butterflies so high, butterflies so high

I hear the girls in Paris are mighty fine
But they never stop to see you
For they won't look down, no they won't look down

Well, a New York gal's gonna talk too much
A Berlin girl's gonna sup your beer
Seville and Rome they're just too hot
I wanna lie and take it easy, take it easy

Well, you skinny girls stay far from me
Never be getting my pork and beans
A big legged woman that's firm and round
When I see you girls my love come down
See you girls my love come tumbling down

Well a natural woman that's what I want
Never gonna mind when the money's all spent
A natural woman that's the one for me
I tell you boys and you best believe, best believe it

I love a kindhearted woman, really long and tall
Kindhearted woman, really love to ball
Tell you boys and you best believe
No cold heart for you or me

Because some people like short, some people like tall
Some people kinda like 'em skinny legs and all

Wanna roll and tumble to the break of day
Look out mama I'm a-coming your way
Wanna roll and tumble to the early light
Then everything gonna be all right

Everything's gonna be all right
Track Name: By the Water's Edge
There’s the lovers by the sea
As the waves lick upon the shore
I’m taking you to the water’s edge
We’ll see what we will see

A cuckold you have made
And horns I now do wear
Taking you to the water’s edge
You’ll find my girl out there

No longer shall I wake with you by my side
No longer shall you make me a cuckold no more
Oh, by the water’s edge
Oh, by the water’s edge
Oh, by the water’s edge
I went and took my lover there
Track Name: Ease My Load
Well I'm traveling with full heart
But my spirit is full of trouble

Well sometimes, sometimes it puts my mind on a wander
Sometimes it puts my mind on a wondering and I said
Oh baby, can you help me ease my load
