The Time It Takes

This is the only actual ‘live’ track on the album, recorded at a fun, strange gig in a MASSIVE industrial building in the South of England - our first ‘office gig’. The place in question is about to be closed down, the work done there moved elsewhere and, most likely, the local economy decimated as a result.

The time it takes to make a decision like that - based, it seems, purely on the economic benefits to the company - see wholly at odds with the time it takes to build the company, build the community around it and then for the entire area to recover from the blow caused by the loss of thousands of jobs and the money they bring in. It seems entirely disporportionate, so this is an (improvised) meditation on the theme of time, power, influence and community.
