I originally came up with the idea for a 'Concept Album' sometime during the mid-1980s, while playing with a 3-piece rock band called 'Nobody's Fools'. I had written the basic storyline and a few of the songs, but it got shelved and left to sit on a shelf for years. Some time ago I re-discovered it. Sitting in a folder at the bottom of a box in a cupboard. It was full of lyrics and musical ideas which seemed to be jotted down on whatever was handy at the time.
In the middle was a copy of my 'Concept' idea. All the character descriptions and some musical themes to match. I decided then to start writing and recording the material and see what comes out of it. Over the last few months, (before Corona), I have been working on FOTW a lot. Writing new songs and music, and demoing up the tracks. My good friend, Eleanor Reid has been laying down the main female character voice, 'Shelley', and I have been singing all the other parts, male and female! However, I would like to get other voices involved. At this time I am just doing what I can with the current restrictions that are in place. Hopefully I'll be able to get some more characters recorded soon. I originally intended to maybe put on some 'Concert' performances of FOTW sometime this coming Autumn, but I doubt that will happen now. Next year, mid 2021, looks like the best time for now. The playlists below are demo recordings of the tracks, (works-in-progress). Split into the two acts. Or; Side A & Side B! I will be updating these tracks as more gets done on them.
