“Everybody shut up, close the doors and call me Mary”

I've been hard at work on the new album and, specifically, the first track to include vocals. The song (currently titled “The Warmth of You”) depicts the despondency of the Italian POWs on Orkney during WW2 and, in particular, their sense of separation from their religion. It's essentially a lament to the Virgin Mary and I've given it an emotional vocal (I'm hoping I haven't gone over-the-top with the angst – that's something for my much-appreciated 'Listening Panel' to report back on). To get that emotional feel to the vocal (and given that I, personally, am not religious) the song, in my mind, is about my lady rather than the Blessed one! I'll post a clip from the song in due course but there's more work to be done on it before that (the plan is for a powerful guitar solo to end the track).
And the title of this blog... I heard someone say this the other day. The guy was denoting surprise, though I've no idea of the origin or actual meaning of his phrase. Whatever, I did laugh!
