  • New song : Will to Power

    On DBA's FB page is a new track talk through with Chris. An epic, drivin' song that affirms there is a light in the darkness. ( like bright lighthouses by the sea ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

    No lyric video yet. But incomin' I expect.

    From the very brief clip, the guitar sound is very gnarly!

    Donโ€™t do FB but that was a tease. Interesting to hear that this new song is based on some of Geoffโ€™s work he had done during the Drama period, with Jon Anderson doing some guest vocals.






















    No, not really but we must draw more interest into the upcoming Downes Braide Association album. I like and prefer the first single out to anything on the last two YES albums. Donโ€™t tell anyone. ;-)

      Rob. Song was from the Skyscraper Souls time but didn't fit on that album. Likewise Halcyon Hymns. They finally resolved it for Celestial Songs. Chris says a great guitar solo at end. Another song about findin' clear light and hope out of the darkness of confusion.
      Stickin' to the template. Will there be just a Dumb Party Anthem?

      The trailer mentions 3 or so singles. Forget which.

      OK. Had a look. Moving On. Look What You Do. Expect lyric videos for those two next.

        I know, I know, Gilly.
        Donโ€™t you ever sleep? ;-)

        Must finish that video podcast that Sean from ProgEars hosted and posted here with Mr. Moraz.

          Rise and shine time Downunder!!!

          2 cups of coffee and lots to trawl through in the Yesiverse. And. I have to also check out the new Moraz interview. Yesshift dudes are reviewin' the Horn memoir next. Soon also to release amazin' Roger Dean doco re: his San Fran exhibition with Freya and all things YES. Perhaps new cover. Oops. I've said too much. ๐Ÿ˜‰

          Plus imagine there may be Jon and School of Rock LIVE vids to see from European dates.

          And. YesMusicPodcast continues weekly ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

            YES! Never a boring day with all things YES, or all things YES-related. Whether it is to praise or dump on ( not the two of us Gilly ) there is still somehow, STILL, YES-shit to bitch about, er PRAISE.

            Even for us younger fans that started in the early 80s, who would have imagined that there would ever have a YES to see, let alone a maze of artists and shows to see that is still going on? No body! I was listening to Patrick where they were touring the states in 1976, and they had to literally shut down the airport in New York because of the lasers YES were using. Sure, I was a big man in the early 70s navigating the alps skiing, but I was literally in charge of nothing else back then, including picking and going to shows. I see older folks shopping only, and acting like, while like older folks do. I see more and more dropping off, and staying at home. Dog bless they older folks still entertaining themselves, and us!

              NEW SONG : ON THE RUN






              Another track talk through on FB page. Song is another "drivin'" song. Chris says the drumbeat is very Kate Bush- Hounds of Love

              He also says it is TALK TALK influenced.

              About facin' the demons that keep you "on the run".

                I'm keen on pickin' up this new DBA album when it gets released into the wild. Haven't listened to any of the new trax yet, but for some reason I'm feeling getting this one. I lost track of them after Skyscraper Souls and didn't get the DBA 4 or the live one until a year or two after they came out and I thought 4 wasn't quite as excitin' as the first three. But I got a good feeling about Celestial Songs! I'm gonna listen to this drivin' around at night well after the orangey skies merge into a purple blanket of starry wonder. ๐ŸŒ™

                      Yep. Another track talk through on DBA FB page.
                      Duet with Marc Almond. And on the day of Sinead O'Connor's death announcement it appears quite the poignant coincidence.

                          NEW SONG : HEART SHAPED HOLE



                          Click image for larger version  Name:	364210626_797908081977669_7749524028139098209_n.jpg Views:	0 Size:	100.9 KB ID:	54973


                          Will this go down as Chris Braide's Eleanor Rigby?


                          Chris says in the FB track talk through that it is an epic song about loneliness of the aging performer, applyin' more and more makeup as they grow older, still chasin' audience applause.

                          He also says Geoff composed the large extended middle bit. And Bainbridge offers a soarin' solo. Expect emotion, pathos and drama!!!

                          This album is shapin' up nicely. And then the final epic Beyond the Stars, that is creatin' a lot of buzz already. ๐Ÿ˜

                            Piano led ballad about the effect of the Ukraine war on children. Chris is angry and channelled that into this song. Geoff's piano is front and centre.

                              Another track talk through by Chris. On FB.

                              Cowritten by XTC's Andy Partridge.

                              In the style of McCartney + Wings.

                              Melodic. Epic guitar solo by Dave Bainbridge. Geoff cooks on hammond.

                              Sounds cool. Long track.



                              Only about 2 weeks or so to go to Sep 8

                              Wonder when Look What You Do lyric video will drop? They did 3 videos.
