This is the 25th studio album by Peter Hammill, released on his Fie! label in 1998. There is a large variety in the compositions, ranging from the minimalism of the final song, "The Light Continent", to the rough, almost Nadir-like sound of "Always is Next", the complex "Unrehearsed" and the ballad "Since the Kids". Peter Hammill performed the song "Unrehearsed" live many times. Nightman" can be heard on the live-album Veracious (2006).
The Love Songs is an album by Peter Hammill, originally released on Charisma Records in 1984. The album is a compilation of ballads from Hammill's previous solo albums, re-recorded in new versions; all reworked, redubbed and remixed to form this album. The lead vocals were replaced on all tracks, except "Been Alone So Long". All tracks were based on the original multitracks, except "Again" and "If I Could", which are based on live K Group performances taken from the Margin Tour.
This song is by Peter Hammill and appears on the album Sitting Targets (1981). That token drag on your cigarette,That well-known face in the fire,It could be someone you can't forget,Someone you've learnt to admire. And it's strange how the feeling goes;All change - down the river Ophelia goes. You're treading water, the price is steep,You say you'll cope with it all;You've made some promises you can't keep,You throw yourself against the wall,You throw yourself against the wall.
While Peter Hammill is often seen as a somber and brooding songwriter, this characterization is quite a bit off-base - as "Ophelia" proves handily, simply by its sheer prettiness. Hiding behind its gentle charm and sweetness, however, is something a bit darker - "Down the river Ophelia goes," Hammill sings, and indeed she does, being the tragic waif of Hamlet. The lyrics obscure this point with wordplay, however, and it could as well be about a lost relationship. The effect is subtle, but dynamic, enveloping the listener in the song, and providing a lulling environment until, as often happens with a Hammill song, it stops dead. The Love Songs version retains some of the original performances, but adds some needless elements and restructures the vocal performances.
